I will put this out there, although I hesitate to do so because I have no proof whatsoever other than the word of a friend.
I am retired from the FBI and I was talking to one of my friends who works for the CIA.
The CIA is of the opinion that the aircraft is in Africa. No word on what was the fate of the passengers.
Accept it for what it is..... I won't give you names of source, I can't.

Is it odd that two Ukrainians from Odessa were traveling from Bali to Bejing out of an airport with lax security? Who were they? Businessmen? Athletes? Millionaires? Why no information about them?
A separate official told the AP news agency that the Boeing jet wasn't transmitting data to the satellite but sending out a signal to establish contact. Boeing offers a satellite service that can receive a stream of data during flight on how the aircraft is functioning.
The unnamed official said Malaysia Airlines didn't subscribe to that service, but the system was automatically “pinging” the satellite anyway.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the transmissions didn't include data about any of the plane’s critical systems but did include information on the flight's location, speed and bearing.
They said the final ping was sent from over water at a “normal” cruising altitude.
It remains unclear why the transmissions stopped.

The plane only had enough fuel for 2,000 miles. It couldn't go farther than that...
that said officially there were said to have been two transmissions from the engine:
But New Scientist understands that the maker of the missing Boeing 777's Trent 800 engines, Rolls Royce, received two data reports from flight MH370 at its global engine health monitoring centre in Derby, UK, where it keeps real-time tabs on its engines in use. One was broadcast as MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the other during the 777's climb out towards Beijing.
So according to this, and officially according to the airline, there was no data transmitted after they lost contact with the plane and someone is going well outside of any official report to say it was in the air for 4-5 hours and possibly well outside of probability given a fuel distance of 2000 miles.
Its flight from KL to Beijing takes six hours (take off around 00:41, due to land around 06:40), so yes, it did have enough fuel to fly for 4-5 hours after they lost contact after the first hour. It also apparently as standard had fuel for another two hours beyond its scheduled flight time for emergency incidents.
I don't believe the claim it flew undetected for five hours any more than you do, but not because of the fuel it had on board.

If indeed that is correct info... then I wonder what mad regimes (with the power and $$$) in Africa could pull this off?
