Was a bit spooky flying one week later at about the same time of the morning as the missing plane. Colleagues at work questioned how I felt flying the same time in the same sort of plane. My 777 experienced a few bumps so the captain left the seat belt sign on for quite a while. I landed safely in Bangkok at 1240am local time (140am Malaysian time). This is just after time the plane’s last voice transmission. But I landed.
For the families of the people aboard, there is still no closure and lots of conjecture.
Damages claims could be “half a billion dollars, or more”. On top of that Boeing and Rolls Royce could face claims.
At the moment, getting answers may be more important than getting cash? With a search area from the Indian Ocean to Korea , this could take some time, however.
Thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those involved.
