    Its about time. I flew for an Asian Carrier and was sadly not surprised at all by the San Francisco crash. I hope they can do it but it will be harder than one thinks as you are asking them to step outside of their culture when they step into a flight deck.

      Thanks Chris. Got it for you.

      Yes, I agree. This is not the first time of an Asian airline having this cockpit management and culture issue. They have no other choice, they must implement this training.

      All the best.
