    They are technically in "free fall", or something close to that, so its not "floating". It may resemble being out in space with no gravity, but gravity still are affecting them, in fact its the only force acting on them in that situation. They feel like "floating in space" because there is no force counter-acting against the pull of gravity. In most other cases, there is something counteracting gravity. When a plane is flying straight and level, the lift generated by the wings counteract the pull of gravity, or walking or cycling everyday, the ground's "normal force" counteract the gravity's pull, or aerodynamic drag slows the pull of gravity like someone opening their parachute when they skydive from a plane.

    Well, what can you expect from an "Inshallah" run airline?

    There's far too much of a co-incidence here. The 737-800 is actually a remarkably safe aircraft, so why two major incidents very close together?

    Hazard a guess that machinery don’t like sitting for long periods. Too many oils and liquids to keep machines working.

    I would be curious to hear more on that. What in comparison do they do differently? Any airline in the region that does an exceptional good job/ bad job?
