Inconvenience??? Are you having a laugh here… Your Airline has put lives at risk… Its not an inconvenience but passengers safety severely compromised here. Will you wake up and act only after an accident or a social media hashtag boycott you?

Will you regret a major crash if it would happen? These things can't be regretted.
