AirAsia falls short of expectations again

AirAsia falls short of expectations again

The Malaysian low-cost carrier, AirAsia has fallen short of expectations again. The 6-time winner of the Skytrax World’s Best Low Cost Airline title is in news for its missing plane for the second time this year.

In the April edition of Travel3Sixty magazine earlier this year, the carrier had assured the passengers of a safe journey by stating that it has well-trained pilots and crew.

The magazine had quoted, "Pilot training in AirAsia is continuous and very thorough. Rest assured that your captain is well prepared to ensure your plane will never get lost. Have a safe flight!"

The issue was out in markets after AirAsia's flight 370 went missing on March 8 with 239 passengers aboard. There has been no news of the missing plane till date.

Facing ire from people, AirAsia sought an apology and withdrew the magazine from the market.

Now, AirAsia's flight QZ8501 carrying 162 passengers has gone missing since Sunday, Dec 28.

Tony Fernandes, GCEO of AirAsia took to Twitter to share that it's a difficult time for him.

He tweeted:

Been one of my toughest days. Spent a large part of day meeting families of passangers. Doing whatever we can.
