Alviani Hidayatul Solikha, flight attendant for the Jakarta-Pangkal Pinang route Lion Air JT 610, which crashed in the waters of Tanjung Karawang, West Java, on Monday (10/29), had called the family before flying. When contacted, the family claimed not to have any hunch.
"Morning around 3 o'clock. He said he wanted to fly to Pangkal Pinang. The rest were quiet," said Jayanti, one of the victims' relatives when reporters met at the funeral home in Gantrung Hamlet, Mojorejo Village, Kebonsari District, Madiun Regency, East Java, Monday (29 / 10).
When the contact was made, his party had absolutely no feeling whatsoever about the victim. Only on Monday afternoon, he got a call from Lion Air's office informing him that Alvi was one of the victims of a plane crash that crashed in the waters of Tanjung Karawang.
The family was immediately shocked and could not believe it. Until now, the family hopes that Alvi can still survive.
Meanwhile, the atmosphere at the victim's home, neighbors, and relatives continued to arrive. They are waiting for news of the certainty of Alvi's condition. The victim's parents were also still shocked and reluctant to meet with reporters.
Alvi is the only child of Sukartini and Slamet. After graduating from high school, the victim continued his one-year flight attendance school in Yogyakarta.
Based on information from the family, the victim just graduated and was immediately accepted as a flight attendant at Lion Air since the last two months.

The plane, which was supposed to arrive at Pangkal Pinang Airport at 07.20 WIB, carried 189 passengers and crew.
