Rows of empty seats and 200 crew resignations: After two of the worst air tragedies in history
Following two of the worst air tragedies in recent years, the shadow cast over Malaysia Airlines is growing ever darker.
A photo posted on Twitter claiming to show a Malaysia Airlines flight from Australia shows rows and rows of empty seats, with just three passengers visible. Another showed a young family enjoying the whole plane to themselves.
Meanwhile, nearly 200 cabin crew have resigned from the carrier, causing crew shortages among the staff still working for it.
Malaysia Airlines is rumoured to be ready to replace its chief executive as part of a major overhaul, and is expected to announce this week its earnings for the period between the disappearance of MH370 in March and the downing of MH17 over Ukraine in July.
