Fathom 239 Amelia Earharts vanishing into thin air in the blink of an eye in the dark uncanny hour of the night. This is an aviation mystery that has infiltrated the minds of those who can’t solve it; the minds of millions of experts who dug up millions of square miles to uncover the answer, but it was nowhere to be found. Except for a wing flaperon on La Reunion Island off the coast of Africa, of course. On the fateful night of March 8, 2014 a plane carrying 239 souls evanesced like vapor into the expanse of the Southern Indian Ocean. Barely into the early hours of the morning on March 8, the plane departed from Kuala Lumpur International Airport into the pitch black ubiquitous darkness of the sky. It was a routine flight like any other, expecting to arrive in Beijing at the scheduled time of 6:30 GMT. Only a 360 degree turn of events – from exposure to causticly cold water – would reconfigure the fate of 239 passengers, and this has precisely come to fruition. Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has accomplished what people thought a radar-mapped world couldn’t endure. This event reached the threshold of unfathomable. Midway into the flight, before the hour mark had hit, the Boeing 777 veered unexpectedly to the left before it was entering Vietnamese airspace. I’ve heard about extreme lengths that people go to to prove their repugnance for certain people, but to take an Commercial Boeing 777 plane off of its intended course to prove discontent to Vietnamese people is ridiculous-ly clever, but to each their own. However, to dissect this onion even further layer by layer we should focus on the potential discontent for Chinese people, because the plane was in fact destined for Beijing. However, we can’t overlook the fact that there is discontent for all of the countries destined to fly over in that path: Laos, Cambodia, etc.
How many assholes can you have in your life that deters you from flying over their airspace? Also, it’s asinine to require your passengers to purchase round trip tickets when your flight is only going one way. I don’t know why you wouldn’t just refund those who purchased round trip tickets, it doesn’t seem like a great policy for Malaysian Airlines. No wonder they were under so much scrutiny, all of the families wanted their money back! If the two drawbacks aforementioned don’t seem like enough to deter one from flying Malaysian Airlines, it’s unfair in itself that the airline would charge the passengers for a breakfast meal, when they never even gave them a meal. Without regards to anything mentioned, the real kicker comes into play when the plane diverted from Vietnamese airspace, and then failed to keep in contact with air traffic control entirely. I’ve heard of discourteous people like Hitler, Putin, etc. but I’ve never heard of an asshole that would deliberately crash a plane just to avoid verbal contact, and because he disliked the countrie(s) he was flying into. First withholding of my meal, then diverting my plane to avoid Vietnamese people, then charging me for a round trip ticket, this is DEFINITELY the last time I fly Malaysian Airlines ever again.
