A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew lost contact with air traffic controllers on Saturday en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The disappearance of a Malaysian jetliner is an "unprecedented aviation mystery" with a massive air and sea search now in its third day failing to find any confirmed trace of the plane or the 239 people aboard.
Flight MH370 was operated on a Boeing 777-200 aircraft. It departed Kuala Lumpur at 12.41 am on the 8th March 2014. The aircraft was scheduled to land at Beijing International Airport at 6.30am local Beijing time. Up until now, the authorities have yet to locate the missing aircraft. Let us spare a moment of our thoughts and pray for all on board MH370.
For business travelers who check in and out of Kuala Lumpur International Airport ever so frequently, flying will never be the same again.
