Malaysian Airlines grounds 777 Fleet

What do you think?


Why’d they ground them all? Is it cause of MH370 and MH17?

You can read it…probably because they will go bankrupt soon…I think…

They lost a lot of money and customers after the MH370 / MH17 crashes and have said to become bankrupt soon … That’s probably why they are starting to downsize their planes till one day , the company vanishes


I didn’t know they were going bankrupt, that explains it now. Thank you!

I’m surprised that they’re grounding the 777 fleet. I know the two incidents involving the 777 effected the airline negatively, but I wasn’t expecting this

I like the mh370 reference there. Nicely done.


Grounded is too strong of a word. They were retired. They were not forcibly restricted to the ground.

One was an accident and the other aircraft was shot down by Ukranian separatist. The 777 hasn´t been involved in lots of accidents, so I don´t know why they´re grounding their versions.

Bad publicity.

CNN has said MH 777-200 and put too many photos online that they have gotten enough publicity.

And that shows that media people aren´t very bright when it comes to aviation.

I really don’t think they need to do that until the company dies unless customer numbers are down. This makes me sad though.

I wonder who will replace them as the flag carrier if they go bust?

No one? Might be like America

You think so? Anyway, I thought AA was the US of A’s flag carrier. Malaysian is also the only major-major carrier for the country.
