Missing MH370: MAS hopes for answers
Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya

PETALING JAYA - Malaysia Airlines conveyed its grief to the families of those on board the MH370 plane and hoped for answers that might aid in disclosing what actually happened to the missing aircraft.

The airlines' Group Chief Executive Officer Ahmad Jauhari said that the thoughts and prayers of the staff of MAS remained with the families of the 239 passengers on board the missing Boeing 777.

"The families have been on our minds throughout the last 100 days, and will continue to do so as we feel their pain.

"We miss our colleagues and friends on board MH370 and we continue to hope and seek answers that will bring us closer to finding out what happened to MH370," he said in a statement on Sunday.

Flight MH370 disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8. It was inexplicably diverted and is believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.

An extensive search for the plane involving 26 countries has so far failed to unearth any wreckage.

Jauhari added that Malaysian Airlines would like to thank the Governments and various agencies of Malaysia, Australia and China, and the many nations joined in the search for MH370.

"Malaysia Airlines continues to support the search operations, continues to support the next-of-kin and continues to keep in touch.

"It has been the longest and most painful 100 days in Malaysia Airlines' history," he said.
