Re: Kan Air starting new route between Hua Hin and Chiang Mai

......................but it's reassuring to know that they don't fly faulty aircraft. I would be inclined to think that it more to do with "faulty" management, rather than blame the aircraft. It is highly likely that the ATR aircraft is "out of time" on some components or service interval, and pro...
