Fuel was a HUGE issue. They had enough to reach Beijing on the planned flight path. That means, that going in a straight line, across Vietnam, and across China, they had enough to reach Beijing with a reserve left over. That doesn't mean that they had enough to fly any flight path they wanted to, playing "dodge the radar", and still reach Nanming. Airlines don't put enough fuel in to fly any path they choose, they put the fuel in based on the planned flight path, with a reserve to reach another airport in the area, with maybe a little more for weather if there's going to be bad weather along the way.

I'd think my theory is a best case scenario as the people on board would be alive and not dead in the water.

You don't base a theory on "best case scenario" you base it on the information.

They have also doubled the search area to 100 square miles.

Has anyone thought of fire?

Swiss Air flight #111 caught on fire after leaving New York and as it was flying over Nova Scotia, if you remember.

Fire can disorientate a crew very quickly.

Maybe you should look at a map first and calculate the distances before making that assertion.

According to the travel agent, she knows the ticket purchaser as "Mr. Ali" and he is a regular customer of hers. The original tickets were purchased, and expired on March 6th, but expired, so he repurchased tickets for this flight.

You have no information to base your "theory" on. Mine at least has some that has been reported by various sources.
Besides, it really doesn't matter what's bandied about here now does it?

So they had enough fuel to fly around Vietnam, dodging the Philippines, the ships that are patrolling the Spratly Islands, and up into China, with no one noticing them, even though they had planned to fly directly over Vietnam. It's not exactly like that added an extra hundred miles to the route. Fuel would have been a concern.

Tickets are issued to a named person. The guys used false identities. Mr. Ali had to have know that in order to purchase the tickets in their assumed names. No? Or is this just another conspiracy?

Gee Did you also think that this happened after 9/11 and 7/7 and all the rest?

All this passport checking crap is just lip service and excuses. They don't really care about keeping us safe.

What they care about is the power they can assert when they feel like it.

Are you sure 100 square miles ? That seems awfully small

I guess I'll have to do the work of obtaining the distances. However it's clear you have not looked at a map as to where Beijing is in relation to the reported landing site. I'll see what I come up with


I'll also add, there's no reason to believe that if the scenario is as I suggested, they still could have taken the route over Vietnam escorted by Chinese military if the Vietnamese allowed that to happen. Just saying.

All that was said is that he is a regular customer. Nothing more, nothing less, but if he's a regular customer, and he regularly uses stolen identities (which is possible) why is this the first flight that has had something happen to it if it's related?

Well who knows what else has occurred due to their use by he and his associates?

I'm not even going to bother with the distances. Beijing, as the crow flies, is twice the distance of Guizhou, China, from where the flight originated from. Want to stick with the fuel issue?

I know where Beijing is in relation to Nanming, I've looked it up. But you keep pulling things out of the air. The plane was planned with a minimum of fuel, plus reserve. That was for a straight line course over Vietnam, into Beijing. Not for going all around the Gulf to get to China where no one would notice it.

So now, Vietnam allowed the plane to fly over them, with a foreign countries fighters escorting it (yeah right), and is expending millions of dollars in fuel in a futile search. Do you not see how this is getting more and more outrageous?

They've been searching a roughly 80 square mile area until now, and according to the article it's going up to 100. Which is probably why they haven't found it yet.

Beijing is more than 1000mi from Guizhou, China. Still want to stick with the fuel issue?
