Beijing (ECNS) – Malaysian Airlines has promised that it will pay 31,000 yuan (US$5,059) to family members of each passenger aboard flight MH370 as "special consolation money" on Tuesday afternoon
“We’re not really interested in the money,” one relative told AFP, according to The Guardian. “It is all about the people -- the people on the plane. We just want them back”

s they are not responsible for foul play.
In September 1990, a Boeing 727 owned by Faucett Airlines of Peru was ditched into the North Atlantic after running out of fuel on its way to Miami. The accident was attributed to poor pilot planning and the wreck was never recovered.
More mysterious was the disappearance of another 727 in Africa. It was being used to transport diesel fuel to diamond mines. The owners had numerous financial problems and one day, just before sunset, the plane took off without clearance and with its transponder turned off. It is believed to have crashed in the Atlantic Ocean. One theory, never proven, is that it was stolen so the owner could collect insurance.
Just wait till the life insurance policies kick in. Or if they find the black boxes and it was a fault with the aircraft, massive liability payments. Proper money compared to that hand out.
Whao, now thats more like it. Alaska issued a consolation of 4 times the amount Malaysia Airlines is offering. IF they're short on cash, sell a plane. Cuz obviously these lives were in your hands when they were suspiciously lost.
