Safety is the priority of any airlines and no compromise should be done with that. It is the pilot’s duty to protect and safeguard the aircraft and the passengers boarding the flight.
In June a Youtuber and captain of Airbus A320 named Gaurav Taneja raised some serious safety questions on Air Asia. The captain was later on suspended from his job but through his YouTube Channel Flying Beast and twitter he kept the topic alive.

The Directorate General Of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Official Siad:
“We had issued a show-cause notice to two AirAsia India executives — Head of Operations Manish Uppal and Head of Flight Safety Mukesh Nema — in June only. It has been decided now to suspend them for a period of three months,”
Gaurav Taneja Also Tweeted:
Capt Manish Uppal and Mukesh Neema from @AirAsiaIndian are suspended by @DGCAIndia for safety violations and risking people lives for profits.
All the “safety experts” who were acting as PR agents of @AirAsiaIndian , you are caught with your pants down. #AirAsiaIsUnsafe

Gaurav Taneja also highlighted how FLAP 3 landing is recommended for saving the fuel but also increases the risk of passengers lives.
“In order to achieve targets, what would people do? They will do Flap 3 landings without giving consideration whether it is safe or unsafe. This directly impacts the passenger safety,”
“If something happens during a Flap 3 landing, then the question would be asked to the pilot if he or she cares more about saving fuel or 180 passengers”
