Hope the flight attendant is ok and makes a full recovery. Cough cough speaking of Takata have you heard of this? http://blog.caranddriver.com/massive-takata-airbag-recall-everything-you-need-to-know-including-full-list-of-affected-vehicles/#list

Oh no! I think Garuda should change their refrigator to prevent this incident in the future. And Takata has a bad reputation indeed these days


Btw, Can you give us the source of the story? I can’t find the article about it even in Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian Language)

Edit : The incident happened on Saturday, 22-8-2015 (More than a year ago). No wonder it’s really hard to find it. Based on the article that I’ve found, The incident took place when the pantry in front of the Business Class row exploded, It’s a wine chiller. A stewardess named Ayu Marta was hurted on this incident. Luckily, there were 2 doctors onboard the flight so they can gave her a quick medical attention.

Oh yes I’m quite familiar. I have just under 600 new airbag inflator modules at my work, about 250 old Takata ones ready to be shipped back.
