  1. Wow…..from the sound of this it really comes across as a very professional and empathetic response from Malaysia Airlines………contrast that to the response of Korean Air after the San Francisco crash…….granted this is much more severe but every life is important and every response is important to their country and to the industry as a whole…………

  2. My apology to Korean and thanks Martin for the snag……….I also saw an article in today’s San Francisco Chronicle talking about how the SF Fire Department “covered up” or was VERY uncooperative with the San Francisco Police Department as they investigated the death of the girl on the runway…….NOT a very transparent and honorable way for our public servants to respond in a tragedy like that……….on behalf of the City of San Francisco I apologize for this insensitive response………..It was a screw up plain and simple……..

  3. Oh I wasn’t aware that Korean air crashed to sfo in our universe. When did that happen in your parallel universe?
