AirAsia Flight QZ8501: Weather report wasn't picked up in person

Surabaya, Indonesia (CNN)AirAsia officials didn't pick up weather reports ahead of Flight QZ8501's crash in person -- something that doesn't mean the airline violated any policies but could mean it missed an opportunity for meteorologists to detail potentially dangerous conditions face-to-face, Indonesia's official weather service told CNN.

Yunus Subagyo Swarinoto, deputy director for meteorology at the weather agency BMKG, said, "Based on our records, there was no AirAsia flight operation officer that directly collected the flight document."
