Let the Conspiracy theories commence.

Actually Sky has had a very sensible bloke on, who knows that area, talking about icing, pito tubes, and the difference between Mach velocity and stalling velocity as you go higher.
Best estimate was that the plane would have had 4 hours fuel, for the 2 hour flight, and it has now been missing for 8.
Not good.

Unconfirmed reports of wreckage being spotted.

AirAsia is a massive operation. I had no idea how large.

Yeap, not good at all. 3rd accident for Malaysia in year 2014, very unfortunate for them.

AirAsia is a larger scale operations (with affiliation to other airlines), covering more routes, more countries and longer haul flights than say Ryan Air -  100 destinations in 22 countries last known data.  

They have hubs in Jakarta, KL and Singapore far as I know, and perhaps hubs also in other Asian countries that I don't know of.  I've used it a few times flying around a few Asian countries.  No difference from Ryan Air or Flybe - same type of low cost carrier with restrictions on luggage, and F&B has to be paid for on board.

They used to fly from KL to London and Paris, operating these routes for a short spell before it was scrapped.  I used it once flying Singapore-KL-Paris -- Sin-KL on MH connecting AirAsia KL-Paris.  Actually on second thought I can't say with certainty it was definitely scrapped but I've not seen that routing for a while.  But they still fly India to Paris.
