Outside of Singapore I don’t trust other Asian carriers to a very high extent. Sure I would still fly most of them but after flying on many such as Vietnam Airways there seems there is many small things they do differently to things I’ve never experienced on top carriers. An example I experienced on just 2 Vietnam airway flights they did pre taxi checklist during taxi! Or big throtlle adjustments on final or after lining up on runway having to realign. Though these are small things, many small mistakes typically are most common lead to crashes.

These are things I’ve never experienced on any Air New Zealand Flight after many many flights.

Also from research into the Asian airline industry there seems to be many issues of undertrained pilots and reliance on automation which led to incidents and crashes. I’ve heard of air India pilots coming to nz for training for a few weeks they go back and start flying commercial aircraft with minimal experience.

Wow! Can’t believe that something like this would happen when the flight attendants SHOULD be trained in properly closing a door…

Well that was a serious mistake done by the cabin crew.

Wouldn’t the flight deck be pinging an alarm like crazy? Shouldn’t the pilots have been able to tell by pressurization that the door was open? Shouldn’t the people on the ground have noticed? I guess the new question is: how many blind people does it take to miss a wide open cabin door?

that’s got to be terrifying-i though it was like open to the point where you could see a sliver of the out side

At 1:39, that baby’s face 😂😂🤣🤣🤣

Thank god that airplane doors are already designed with safety in mind. Doors are designed in a way to be held shut when the pressure inside the cabin is higher than the pressure outside. This is mainly done to prevent someone from accidentally opening the door mid-flight.

hahaha lol never heard of a door being open

Never flying Jinair! :)

I believe that they were talking more about South-East carriers and less Chinese and Middle Eastern.

Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways? Very professional, and while they did suffer many accidents in the 20th century, these were mainly mechanical related, not airline related
