Weather was all bad

I flew just a few hours before this flight took off from Surabaya. Our radar was nothing but,skull and crossbones over most of Indonesia and the Java sea. Also to not. Jakarta radar does not depict weather. There ATC is 30 years behind at best. Coverage is intermittent. So, the likelihood of an airplane vanishing in this area is extremely high.
