AirAsia flight attendant's eerie tweet message

AN Indonesian flight attendant, who is listed as working on board the missing AirAsia flight, tweeted a message of support to the victims of the MH17 disaster just months before his own plane disappeared en route to Changi, Singapore.

Oscar Desano from Jakarta, is thought to be one of the seven crew members on board flight QZ8501 which went missing yesterday.

Mr Desano, whose Twitter account stated that he spent Christmas Day relaxing in a jacuzzi with a friend, issued an eerie tweet earlier in the year to the victims of Malaysian Airline MH17, which was shot out of the sky in July.

"I feel truly sorry for the lost of MH17 by Malaysia Airlines. It's been 2 big catastrophe event for MAS in 1 year," tweeted on July 17.

"My deep condolences also for the pax's family, may all the casualties rest in peace...

"Hope everything will be OK also for the internal company of Malaysia Airlines... Amiiinnn...'

The four flight attendants on flight QZ8501 are listed as Wanti Setiawati, Khairunisa Haidar Fauzi, Oscar Desano and Wismoyo Ari Prambudi, along with technician Saiful Rakhmad.
