I just gotta bring this up.
The company is taking a heavy loss this year. Do I blame the families? No. MH370 is unconfirmed that it was either pilot error or mechanical failure, and MH17 wasn't the airliner's fault even thou everyone is pinning bad rep's against the airline company. People had seats upgraded to first class and huge planes like A380's and B-777's are almost plain empty. MAS is having a rough year and it isn't going to feel better for a long while. Once everything is calm they will slowly get their customers back...or not. Let's face it I feel bad for both the planes and the families on board and I give out my full peace and hope both are solved completely.
I'm using resources from wikipedia because 1: They were protected at the time, and 2: Data is old so it's complete evidence of the incidents, except the MAS incidents that is getting fresh data.
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
Malaysia Airlines Flight 17
Both 777's which are amazing aircraft (But I also like the A380-800's better) can pilot through the worst case scenario's like weather and turbulence and remain on course and is the most advance aircraft this world has to offer.
If the airline company has 1 more accident this year, you might as well kiss the company good-bye for a long time. They will probably close the company for a long while *maybe not permanently* A lot of people are going to lose their jobs for that and I feel devastated over that. Several crew members moved their positions to other airline companies
I think the families are suffering more than me and I sometimes get nervous over this since I'm in Aviation in College as a Captain or First Officer of American Airlines or US Airways (I want QANTAS because of safety record but I'm not Australian, can't join I already looked it up) Sigh...I'm completely aghast.
Malaysia isn't the worst airliner company in the world and have no hopes of being the 1st so I'm not going to rant over that. Malaysia isn't like Air France because all crashes from Air France (About 90%) involve complete fatalities meaning all on board is killed. Malaysia has a better record than a lot of other Airlines out there but I don't see how they are going to recover these tragedy's.
Another thing like the former airliners like TWA, Pan Am, and other Companies that have been retired wasn't as bad as Malaysia right now...except the TWA incident which brought up major media speculation.
TWA Flight 800(1996)
And the single Aircraft disaster in history (JAL is still in service)
Japan Airlines Flight 123
Does anyone think MAS will be recovered over time?
