The two men flying on MH370 appear to be in the same situation as the other 237 other people on the flight -victims of whatever fate has befallen the 777.
BBC Persia, Malaysian Insider, The Telegraph and Yahoo Malaysia are reporting that the passport holders were young Iranians trying to make a new life in Europe. One was 19 years of age, flying to see his mother in Frankfurt and the other was seeking his fortune in Denmark.
They paid for passports that were not theirs and arranged for tickets to be paid in cash through a friend for the cheapest fare to Europe. That friend happened to use a Thai travel agency and the tickets happened to be on the Malaysia Airlines flight. They flew from Tehran to Kuala Lumpur where they stayed with a friend for a few days before boarding MH370.
The mystery of this flight remains. There are a number of possibilities proposed by experts and amateurs but until substantive wreckage is found, we won’t understand what happened.
The airline announced today: All angles are being looked at. We are not ruling out any possibilities.
