New Lion Air website even more crappy than before It has been quite some time ago since I last flew with Lion Air. This is caused by the fact that Wings Air is a 100% daughter-company of Lion Air. Lion Air itself is currently renewing it's fleet with Boeing planes, but Wings Air is the trash can of Lion Air. They still operate two MD-82 planes built in 1982 which are in poor condition; PK-WIL and PK-WIK are just too dangerous to fly with if you ask me. It's amazing that they didn't crash already.

Indonesia politicians visit ailing Suharto During ex-Indonesian dictator Suharto's weeklong hospital stay, the country's political elite stumbled over one another to visit the ailing strongman. Emerging from the elite Pertamina Hospital, they described him as a great leader and "father of the country.'' Neither current President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono nor anybody else mentioned Suharto's dismal human rights record or his history of corruption on a staggering scale, sending the strongest signal yet that the dictator's long-dormant graft case for allegedly stealing $600 million would not be reopened.

Deadly ground Alinda-Jane Hannah, a New Zealander living in Phuket, was nearly killed by the Dec. 26 tsunami. Driving along a road in the beachside town of Kamala, she and her 3-year-old daughter Nakita-Rose were almost washed away by the waves as they swamped the eastern coast of the island. A sharp intimation of mortality revisited Hannah last week when a loudspeaker in a nearby mosque woke her shortly before midnight, warning of another tsunami on the way. Hannah fled to higher ground, together with tens of thousands of other locals and tourists.
