    It’s not in the news anymore. Old news and only time the families care.

    It fell out of the mainstream news cycle plus the fact it happened in Indonesia we Americans develop Amnesia. Had this been a Southwest or American Airlines flight flying into Memphis I'm sure we would have family members on morning news shows and there would be more public interest or outrage. Reading the article I still stick with my first comment about the accident it looks like Boeing and the FAA really dropped the ball on this one. Once again "training costs", "transition time" it really is all about the $$$$.

    Yup....the usual year will go by....no one will remember....and the cause will be pilot error.

    That may be a small part of it, but Lionair is famous for being substandard especially in basic pilot training. New airplanes are only as good as their pilots AND how come no other airline has/had the problem that Lionair projects about Boeing?

    It WAS pilot error! Like EG eluded, it only takes 2 dumba$$es to try and recreate the parting of the Red Sea with a brand new state of the art Airplane.
