I woke this morning to a Facebook notification that Malaysia Airlines had updated it’s profile picture. My heart sank as there Facebook page loaded with a black and white logo and the realisation of yet another tragedy for them.
Very déjà vu as I find myself like I did 5 months ago with MH370 watching rolling news coverage and press conferences, in fact me and my flatmates watch the MH370 press conference every night for a whole month and a bit after MH370 disappeared and Malaysia airlines have only just recently put the website back together as again today they pull it apart and display updates, media statements and family contacts. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and everyone involved.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those on board MH17, as well as their families and loved ones. We stand ready to provide assistance. — Boeing Airplanes (@BoeingAirplanes) July 17, 2014
We are retiring the MH17 flight number from 25 July out of respect for the crew and passengers – http://t.co/HUIWQXl7dx

“This is what it looks like in case it goes down” Passenger Cor Pan wrote on his Facebook page as he boarded flight MH17.
