Mexican plane crash leasing company under scrutiny

According to several news agency reports, the Mexican charter company that leased the Boeing 737 that crashed last week in Havana, Cuba, killing 110 people, was under investigation for serious breaches of security.

The plane was being rented out to Cubana, Cuba’s state-run airline, by Damojh Arlines, a firm based in Mexico City.

Aviation authorities in Guyana had banned the same plane from entering its airspace after it found that crew had been overloading luggage on incoming flights, a source in Guayana told news agencies. It was also reported that some Cubana crew members refused to fly on planes rented form this airline after one dropped off radar during a recent flight over the island nation.
