Nearly three days after the missing Malaysia Airlines jet to Beijing disappeared, relatives say the airline is not doing enough to help them. They have called on the Chinese government to step in to help co-ordinate.
Malaysia airlines has asked family members to fly to Kuala Lumpur, but many in China say they are reluctant to do that.
“We don’t want to go to Malaysia now. There is no result from the search operation yet. If we go to Malaysia, we can do nothing but wait, just like what we are doing in Beijing now. If we go to Malaysia, who can we rely on? most of us don’t speak English. We are in China now and the Malaysia Airlines people still treat us with such a bad attitude. If we go to Malaysia, will they take care of us? I doubt it,”
said Guo Qishun, whose son-in-law was on the missing flight.
Anopther man, whose brother is missing, said they were desperate for answers:“Of course I’m not satisfied. All of us family members are very upset. What we want is a clear answer. It’s been such a long time, and we still have no answers.”In a statement, Malaysia Airlines said their primary focus at the moment was to care for the families of passengers.
At Kuala Lumpur airport it appeared to be business as usual on Monday.
The Malysian government has said it will review all protocols at the airport and would look at increasing security if needed.
