"We can not give any comment at this moment".

A tugboat leaving the Jakarta port saw it fall.

The accident is the first to involve the widely-sold Boeing 737 MAX, an updated, more fuel-efficient version of the manufacturer's workhorse single-aisle jet.

Tragically, according to CNN, the Lion Air plane was carrying children among the passengers.

"We are preparing to depart to the location", said Soerjanto Tjahjono. In general pilots for major airlines will fly between 75 and 90 hours a month so if they are flying 8 hour segments, they will fly 10 or 11... if they are flying 2 hour segments they will fly 38-45.

The government disaster official also wrote that divers were searching for the plane, writing, "Currently SAR team Basarnas doing dives 90 degrees 05 ' dikoordinat 361 "S-107 degrees 06 ' 618" E for search for Lion Air plane that crashed in 610 JT waters Karawang in West Java".

A report to the Jakarta Search and Rescue Office cited the crew of a tug boat which had reported seeing a Lion Air flight falling from the sky. "We all hope and pray that Suneja and all the others on the plane survive", the official said.

Safety experts say almost all accidents are caused by a combination of factors and only rarely have a single identifiable cause.

"We will collect all data from the control tower", said Soerjanto Tjahjono.
