Do Not Fly Unfriendly Skies, or airplanes

JAKARTA (Reuters) - The United States has advised its citizens not to fly Indonesian airlines, saying recent accidents raise questions about the country's aviation safety.

In a message sent to American citizens in Indonesia on Tuesday, the U.S. embassy cited an audit by the Indonesian civil aviation agency, which revealed that no airline in Indonesia is in excellent condition.

"Whenever possible, Americans traveling to and from Indonesia should fly directly to their destinations on international carriers from countries whose civil aviation authorities meet international aviation safety standards," the embassy said.
