SUBANG JAYA: Malaysia Airlines and the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) should have informed the next-of-kin of those on board MH370 first before making the announcement on the status of the aircraft, said some aggrieved families
Malaysia has declared Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 an "accident", meaning all 239 on board the ill-fated aircraft are presumed dead, but insisted the search for the plane last seen on March 8 last year "remains a priority".
Since Capt Simon Hardy revealed in Flightglobal/Flight International his calculations about where Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is likely to have come to rest, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau – leading the MH370 search team – has spoken at length to him.
One of the features of the Flightglobal release of Hardy’s work is that, despite worldwide interest in his work, nobody – yet – has suggested his calculations are anything but logical and mathematically sound.
Malaysia will bear part of the search operation costs for Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH370, which deployed the Australian owned 'Fugro Supporter' vessel.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the Australian government was expected to spend AUD120 million (RM349.6 million) for operating the vessel, which is equipped with sonar equipment to search the sea bed.
"Prior to this, three vessels, namely 'Go Phoenix', 'Fugro Discovery' and 'Fugro Equator' have been deployed in the search for the aircraft.

It has been months and I am absolutely pissed off with all those official zigzag versions of what actually happened!
I am also pissed off with the conspiracy theories.
Without going into the various theories let me answer the major question on everyone’s lips?
Where is what was once MH370? Dr Jacob George
Families of those on board the missing flight MH370 have been told to prepare for a move by Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and the authorities to collect DNA samples, similar to the exercise done during the MH17 tragedy.
