I am also concerned about a fast growing airline combined with some cultural issues that may limit the benefits of CRM, but mentioning Ermenonville is pushing it a bit too far no? This one was due to a (known) design issue of the DC10. No crew could have prevented the disaster from happening.

Kind of putting the blame on Boeing for the van Zanten stunt at Tenerife.

I have 3 longhaul return trips planned with them this year, bought on dirt cheap fares, 1 cent per flight mile with lounge access everywhere.
I can't say that I'm looking forward to it though, their safety record of late is ridiculous.
