This is the captain of your plane
I'm now snortin'
We've run into a little storm
I'm now shootin'
And if you haven't guessed
This is an SOS

Overreacting on 1 or just a few incidents really seems the Indonesian way to handle this kind of things :(

And in a few weeks or months time, when all is quiet again or all of the attention goes to another mega corruption, a massacre, a political scam, etc., etc., nothing will ever be heard of this topic again.


If you have nothing to loose, you can risk everything

What you do in your spare time is your own business, but when a pilot (and there is more than just one) is caught red-handed using various kinds of harddrugs hours before he has to fly a plane with unknowing passengers, there should be very strict enforcement to make sure that pilots (and other air crew) are not under the influence of any drugs at all. Luckily they are fired right away when it is proven they are/were using drugs.

I can't but agree in total on the above. Sadly, "strict enforcement" is nowhere to be found in Indonesia, not in the air, on land or at sea.

In international shipping business it's common practice to control each crewmember during the annual medical checkup for drugs and alcohol, another test will be done (unannounced) for drugs and alcohol on board by an external agency at least once a year, then we have an on board test by master with breathalizer at least quarterly for alcohol only. At least 95% of OCIMF inspected tanker operators is in compliance with these practices. Problem is that in Indonesia they are still not complying with normal world wide accepted industry standards. During my last holiday took a ferry from Ambon City across the Bay, live saving equipment (lifebat, raft, buoys) was in such a bad state that in another country the vessel would never have been allowed to sail after inspection by Port State Control, local authorities, external auditor, vetting inspector etc. Regretfully in Indonesia vessels can still continue their services, even when obviously not complying with safety standards, because nobody is enforcing the law and few inspectors that are checking are most probably bribed.

Solas is completely ignored by a lot of Indonesian ferryboat company's. And to top it off, the maximum allowed amount of people boarding and exceeding this amount in a huge way makes it that Indonesia has a lot of fatality's. It's not only class issues.

With bigger vessels its even common practice seeing MOB and lifeboats hanging intheirs davids where you can see either parts missing,crucial parts, and................no maintenance done only by the looks of it. Very very dangerous. More so because Indonesia by Islands needs to use ferry's on a large scale. Floating deathtraps is a better word.

However unfortunate. Be cautious boarding a ferryboat in Indonesia.


It's only kinky the first time.

I agree with you as well, it's just not possible, however there should be.
