Why am I not surprised to see this news? AirAsia, a Malaysian carrier with low-fare strategy has been doing aggressive advertisements in media. Indonesian government think this is a threat to the country. Why? Read the news, and pay attention to the part where it reports an opinion of Lion Air's PR. Lion Air is an Indonesian carrier. That PR says that Lion Air is ready to compete in a "healthy" way. And by "healthy" he surely means, be protected from foreign competition.
Ah, all too typical.
