Malaysia Airline CEO devastated over 'passengers not making it to destination alive'
CEO of Malaysia Airlines, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya has said that he was devastated that the passengers onboard the crashed MH370 didn't make it to their destinations alive.
Yahya said that the airline has extended its prayers to the families of the 239 passengers on board missing Flight MH370 after Prime Minister Najib Razak confirmed that the plane was lost into the Indian Ocean.
According to news.com.au, the CEO said that they don't know how this terrible tragedy happened, but as MAS family, they were all praying for passengers and crew of the Flight MH370.
Soon after the prime minister broke the news, families of the passengers on board criticised the government and the Malaysian Airline authorities and called them 'true murderers' for not disclosing facts on time and informing them about the crash through text messages.
