Yes. the question was slightly loaded: I was trying to be as polite as I could be while still asking the substantive question.

I wondered if that had changed: evidently not. Racial politics still plays a part in pilot selection in Indonesia.

Having said that, it's just as well that everybody reading this should realize that locally, some people are going to be blaming one pilot because he is foreign, and other people will be blaming the co-pilot because he is not foreign.
