Usually you wouldn't ask multiple questions in one post on this site, but given one can answer them all with this one answer, it's probably ok. Please ask future questions separately though!

comment How are safety standards enforced in an airline which is not IOSA certified?
Whether you should be concerned is opinion-based as well. When price gets low enough it often encourages one to take risks. That point at which low is 'enough' is different for everyone. There are very few airlines I wouldn't fly with, while others won't touch Malaysian after the MH370 issue, or would associate cheap with dangerous.
