Lion Air jet should have been grounded before fatal flight

A Lion Air jet that plunged into the sea last month, killing all 189 people aboard, should have been grounded over a technical problem on a trip prior to the fatal flight, Indonesia’s transport safety agency said Wednesday.

“During the flight From Denpasar to Jakarta, the plane was experiencing a technical problem but the pilot decided to continue the flight,” Nurcahyo Utomo, aviation head at the National Transport Safety Committee, told reporters.

“In our opinion, the plane was no longer airworthy and it should not have continued” flying, he added.
