Crashed into the sea and all 140 pax presumably deceased except one lucky guy who missed the flight.

There's only 200 of these planes in use and a large order in place. This one was delivered to the airline in August. Prior flight had reported strange loud noises from the engine but airline claims was fixed per procedure.

FlightRadar24 shows that the plane reached 2,000 feet about two minutes into the flight, then dropped more than 500 feet and veered to the left. It started climbing again and got to its highest altitude of 5,000 feet. In the final moments before data was lost at an altitude of 3,650 feet, it gained speed. The plane crashed into the sea 13 minutes after taking off.

Yea I saw all the 'allaho akbar' chants and didn't realize it was the Sunday's flight and not the crashed flight.. damn looked nasty.

I think 189 is more accurate than 140 I posted. My hero is the guy who missed his flight. can you imagine???
