    We're glad all passengers and crew survived. A very scary experience.

    "The aircraft was directly received from Boeing on Mar 28th 2013 and was in operation for just about two weeks"

    That's not how I'd break in my new aircraft. Glad everyone survived, though.

    Looking at avherald and the flight path, it looks like it "landed" short of the runway in the water.

    That pilot needs to look for a new job!

    Perhaps a bit early to make conclusive statements about the cause of the accident? Unless you have more information than so far posted to this thread, of course.

    I suppose you are correct, but I don't think the pilot will get off so easy even if there were mechanical issues

    Or wind shear, like Delta 191 @ DFW? Lots of things could have contributed - let's let the investigation happen.

    I'm sure there will also be a lot of questions about whether Lion Air is growing too fast. It's extremely difficult to hire and train (pilots, crew, mechanics, operations control people, etc.) at that rate.

    In two years they've placed orders for 464 planes. Compare that to a total LH fleet of 284, or AA with 605.

    This pilot was apparently very experienced.

    The plane landed short. It did not skid off the runway or overshoot, as most initial media outlets reported.

    If you have to land in the water, Bali is as good a place as any. The water temperature there is usually quite warm.
