    Just saw the crash video on cnn from captured by a dash cam. Wow.

    I am surprised (happily) that anyone survived.

    Edit- my mistake caught by next poster. But the conclusion holds.

    In general the Asian market has been growing so strongly that I have to wonder if airlines, especially LCC's, are maintaining standards and training levels for pilots and maintenance.

    I may be confused, but it seems you are quoting a wikipedia article on a different carrier?

    Yup, sorry, I saw a mixed early article and thought this was also AirAsia.
    TransAsia is much smaller but proportional to its size has been growing pretty quickly, adding a couple planes and crews each year.

    The dashcam footage looked like a scene from a movie - unreal and surreal at the same time! So sorry to hear of lives lost but also happy for those saved.
