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.
You're not seriously comparing what Alaska Airlines did in the United States with what Malaysian Airlines has done in Malaysia, are you? Economically
and cost-of-living wise, these two places are a world apart. Further, neither one of these payments was intended to pay all a family's expenses for
months, nor to be the total compensation each family might be provided. It also was not legally required. Admittedly it is perhaps good PR on the part
of the airline, but they didn't have to do it. NOW they're being condemned because "it's not enough" and also being condemned because "It's not
about the money and we don't want it."
Also, culpability for this has not been determined. If you are the passenger in a car and some other idiot hits the car through no fault of the
driver, do you then demand the driver of your car compensate you? Of course not, and here we don't even know what has happened.
Further, the airline is in between a rock and a hard place. In Bejing where some of the families are gathered they were complaining when
representatives of the airline were not there to talk to them, then when they WERE there to talk to them they threw bottles at them because they came
without answers. They DON'T show up and they're condemned; they DO show up and they are condemned. Does anyone think they intentionally crashed the
plane? Did they expect them to say, "Yeah, the plane diverted to Vietnam and everyone's ok."? Grief. Okay. Not good and all that, but some of these
people are wallowing in it.
These people are dead, and everyone knows it. There is no need for needless pretense. Now let's find out what happened and not sit around in an
airport for the next month "waiting for news."
