Hope faded Tuesday for any of the 162 people aboard AirAsia Flight QZ 8501 after authorities confirmed that debris and bodies sighted were from the plane.
Some of those on the flight, which vanished Sunday en route from Indonesia to Singapore, were traveling to provide for their families. Some were embarking on holiday vacations with friends or relatives. Some were not supposed to be on the plane at all.
Irianto had flown 6,100 hours with AirAsia Indonesia, and 20,537 hours in total, according to the airline. His father-in-law Soewanto said Irianto was a faithful man who was good to those around him.
