From what I know, the pilot of this airline has confessed to the press in one of the Indonesian media that they (pilot and co-pilot) are not the one to blame, as there are aspects of natural cause such as strong wind from above of the aeroplane that push the plane downwards during the landing. But it’s proven here that they are at fault in putting the airplane at an inappropriate speed for landing that time. Also, based from what I read on the newspaper in which the victims that are killed in this incident were mainly caused by the jammed exit door on the front left (first class section) and this is another technical problem from the airline itself, yet the two “captains” of the flight escape from the incident leaving 21 dead. I would say that Garuda should pay more attention to their units, even though it’s only for a cheaper domestic travels, if they want to keep their image as the best local airline as well as one of the representatives of Indonesia.
