People say that NICL itself is in a difficult financial situation for quite some time especially any kind of liquidity. God only knows well if it has the financial ability to pay off the legal heirs of the deceased passengers.

It's strange we haven't heard much about what actually happened. Yes, we know the pilots ignored ATC, and the landing gear wasn't down but why? No inside news regarding CVR and what actually happened.

Forget final reports, how come there is no news about CVR transcript? What were the pilots doing during the approach? Why they said, "we'll manage it"? Why or how they forgot to lower landing gear?

We know they were late to descend, we know they ignored suggestions to circle and loose altitude, we know they forgot to lower the landing gear but what we do not know is why? what was going on in that cockpit? Why they also ignored all warnings? Usually, we got such news way before any report.

Most probably the reason CVR transcripts werent mentioned in the report was that the pilots were bad mouthing management and the airline what was the reason it still unknown, don't know why even an aircraft accident report is soo much shrouded with mystery.
