    Huh?
    I think one reason officials did that is to allow family to claim death benefits. By officially declaring everyone lost, that sets in motion people's survivor benefits, life insurance policies, etc. Without that, the survivors were caught in limbo.

    I believe this interpretation of the data will be proven to be as definitve as any information hertofore presented to date in this case.

    I have not commented on any press release, conjecture, or senario since day one. All I said on day one is that...all we know, is that the plane is missing.

    We knew this a while ago; it's just an official confirmation on what should have been obvious to everyone after the verification of the 5+ hours of satellite pings. The cause is not yet known, but the plane almost certainly flew with no one at the helm until it ran out of fuel.

    Unfortunately, there are too many people in the media who push unfounded conspiracies because they get ratings. The truth is boring and or scary. Planes are complex and even though they're very safe, they can still fail and crash; and for seemingly arbitrary reasons. It's much easier to think that bad things happen because of bad people than a complex combinations of cascading mechanical and electrical failures.

    But... these sorts of events are good litmus tests for news sources. Does the source try to give accurate information or is the source interested in selling papers?

    This is what most likely happened based on the available information and how pilots are trained to react in such situations.

    This doesn't explain why 370 switched directions, assuming that the wreckage in the Indian Ocean is indeed from the plane.

    Yes it does.

    As I said the first thing pilots should do according to all the 2365136 experts I have seen on multiple TV channels, is to take the plane down as fast as possible. Now the direction it has supposedly flown is approximately the direct line to the nearest airport. Now they dont fly it manually, but set the autopilot to do the turns while they deal with whatever was going on... fire, whatever. Now if they then loose conscious like the rest of the plane, then the plane will continue to fly on the last plotted course until it runs out of fuel. This explains pretty much everything, the course change, the low altitude and where they should find what is left of the plane. It is a far better explanation than 99% of the theories out there, everything from UFOs to terrorism.

    It is not the first time this has happened, but it is rare that it goes this bad.. thankfully.

    I am waiting for independent, reliable confirmation. Thus far, the Malaysian government has not been reliable...or timely.

    Texting was tacky too.

    No, it doesn't. If they were aiming for the nearest air port, it wouldn't have flown out towards the Indian Ocean. Helios 522 entered into a holding pattern once it reached it's destination; and did so until it crashed. Had the same thing happened to 370, it would've done the same.

    It also doesn't explain why the transponder was turned off.
