Malaysian Airlines has undoubtedly been experiencing a series of complications throughout the past year. Flight 370 was, which traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, went down mysteriously, Flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine, and most recently Flight 198 had to return to the airport only 40 minutes or so after take off when reports of a fuel or engine fire came in.
Many have claimed that the most recent mishap, the loss of fuel and return to the airport, is a common occurrence among airlines and is only world news because of the company’s prominence due to recent headlines. Questions are being raised as to the number of accidents that Malaysian Airlines is experiencing and whether or not this is becoming too much of a common occurrence for the company.
Families who lost passengers on board the two planes are still coping with the loss of loved ones, especially those who have yet to know what happened to their family members because they were lost in the mysterious disappearance of flight 370.
Claims have been made as to what happened to the flight; however, no wreckage or trace of the plane has been found to prove any of the theories. Flight 17, shot down over Ukraine, has yet to be investigated in depth because of the very risky surroundings in the war-stricken area. As for the most recent incident, it was only a minor scare for those on board. Malaysian Airlines was lucky not to have lost anymore lives, adding onto the already gruesome numbers totaled from the past two accidents.
