Indonesia's Airlines Deemed Unsafe

Two bits of news about aviation in Indonesia:

--The United States has downgraded Indonesia's airlines, saying that they do not meet international standards for safety.  The government tells travelers in Indonesia to use non-Indonesian airlines for their flights.

--In an unrelated note, a former head of Garuda, an Indonesian airline, was arrested in connection with the murder of a civil rights campaigner in 2004. 

Pretty much a banner day for Indonesian aviation.
