Agree - MAS has been a fantastic airline for service, food and their routes and schedules from Adelaide. It's been a tragic year for them and this latest incident could well have happened to SIA and Air India who were within 15 mins of each other in the same air corridor!

I'd still be quite happy and willing to fly Malaysia and not let this latest incident stop me!
Forgiveness is easier to achieve than permission!

I just heard there were 23 Americans on board....don't know if it's true.

Its a strange thing to watch the news and their edited, sanitised versions of the footage. I saw it and thought it was strange that there were no bodies. I didn't really feel anything for the victims until I saw the raw footage from the crash site.

*Warning* This is very graphic footage. I didnt feel much about what happened until I saw this footage including the bodies on this video. I kind of felt that they probably all died instantly and painlessly when the missile hit. This made me think maybe otherwise. Don't watch if you're faint hearted. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=0e5_1405626203

It's sad for MAS who is just an unfortunate victim.  A couple of months ago I was looking at their website. Their business tickets on the MH370 route were dirt cheap.

Once was bad enough now this, they'll be in serious trouble now business wise.

This latest incident is probably just bad luck, but the missing plane isn't a good look. In the end, it's about perception. So far MAS looks possibly incompetent (missing plane) and definitely unlucky (shot down) - two things you don't want in your airline. Anyway, this recent loss of life is a huge tragedy. I'm just hoping none of the victims are from Adelaide.

Almost was, haven't seen anything that says there was. One couple changed their flights and were booked on that plane.
