I just saw it breaking on CNN & ABC. The pilot requested to take an unusual route.

I just saw it on Breaking News on Yahoo. Pilot requested an unusual route. Doesn't sound good at all.

It's in that part of the world now where airplanes are just disappearing. Odd, eh?

I ride the type of aircraft that is lost right now all the time. I just did a few weeks ago. It just seems to be that area, in which planes are lost. Also, we just learned that weather could have been a factor. We know it is a low-cost airliner. We know a little bit about the passengers.

I'm not concerned about the aircraft, the 320 is one of the most popular and safest aircrafts of all time.

Airasia is probably equivalent to southwest in the states, but I'm not sure if they do long haul flights.
