Airline to relatives: go home

1 May, 2014

Malaysia Airlines advises family members to leave their hotels and go home. The airline has housed the relatives in hotels since the plane first disappeared, but it now says it is closing its family assistance centers around the world by May 7, and that families should receive all further updates from “the comfort of their own homes.” It promises to establish family support centers in Kuala Lumpur and Beijing, and keep families updated as news of the flight occurs. It adds that it will make compensation payments to the relatives.
