There is anger over whether Malaysia Airlines was cavalier in continuing to fly over a war zone in Ukraine when some other airlines had begun to reroute their planes.

After two once-in-a-lifetime air disasters within a span of months, speculation is mounting that Malaysia Airlines won't be able to overcome the catastrophes, as the airline was deeply in debt even before its problems captured the world's attention. Malaysia Airlines MH17 flight was destroyed in eastern Ukraine on Thursday, and the 298 people on board are all presumed to have died. American intelligence agencies suggest the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile.
Fire engines arrive at the scene where debris fell from an airplane that was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday. Two unlikely airline disasters struck Malaysia Airlines this year. First, Flight 370 disappeared in March during a flight to Beijing. And on Thursday another flight crashed in Ukraine after it was shot down.Despite these two tragedies resulting in 537 airline fatalities total, the 2010s are still the safest era for airline travel ever.

SYDNEY - In an almost incomprehensible twist of fate, an Australian woman who lost her brother in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 learned on Friday that her stepdaughter was on the plane shot down over Ukraine. Kaylene Mann's brother Rod Burrows and sister-in-law Mary Burrows were on board Flight 370 when it vanished in March.
Two weeks after Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 vanished on its route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing earlier this year, Australian citizen Kaylene Mann read a statement to the media mourning her brother, Rod Burrows, who had been on that flight. On Thursday, less than six months later, the Mann family was grieving again after the names of Malaysian Flight 17 victims began to be released.
