    tough period for Malaysian Airlines, in particular the layoffs, hope those laid off get a good package, but hope after the restructuring, things will look up for the airline

    The drastic cuts to staff, routes, and equipment may be necessary to keep the airline viable, but it's a shame that so many people, and possibly more at a later date, are all of a sudden unemployed after what may be, for some, many years of dedicated service with the airline. Because of two tragic and totally unrelated events, the company may find itself on a very long road back to people's willingness to return to flying on their aircraft, as evidenced by recent photos of near empty cabins. Hopefully, they will be able to establish a good reliability, safety, and economically viable record over time, and eventually return to flying some of their now removed routes, and rehire at least some of those who've had their lives in some way affected by all the cutbacks.

    We wish them luck, good luck for a change, as they've got a long way to go.

    I'm confident that the airline will emerge stronger and more efficient, with re-energised morale
