Family of seven were on year-end holiday

They travelled at the end of every year. Sometimes it was Bangkok, other times, it would be Hong Kong.

On Dec 28, Mr Charly Gunawan and his family were heading to Singapore on AirAsia Flight QZ8501.

On the plane, Mr Gunawan sat beside his youngest son, Stevie. His wife, Madam The Meiji Thejaksuma, sat behind them.

Their other son, Steven, and daughter, Stephanie, were seated separately further behind.

His mother-in-law, Madam Jo Indri, was accompanied by Miss Stephanie's fiancé, Mr Christianto Leonma Hutama.
