The Old Bali Blog « Down: AirAsia flight QZ8501 crashes into Java Sea

It isn't looking good for the passengers of AirAsia flight QZ8501 that went down in the Java Sea on 28 Dec 2014 due to inclement weather.

Four large parts of the aircraft have been detected on the seabed and recovery efforts are ongoing.

The latest twist is that AirAsia doesn't appear to have had clearance flying that particular route on a Sunday - threats of banning the airline from Indonesian airspace are unfolding.

AirAsia flights from Surabaya to Singapore have already been suspended.
