It's a nice gesture, but why is it necessary? Is there a concern that MA is going to go bankrupt? This crap that has hit that airlines is really just a horrible coincidence. No one knows what happened to the missing flight, so logically it can't be blamed on the way MA conducts its operations. And unless someone has sane evidence that says the MA flight that was shot down was a planned, targetted hit, I can't see why that would be blamed on the company as well.

I feel for that company. It's not just  them that will feel the brunt, but everyone that works for it is going to be hurt if this one goes under.

It could be argued that they have some responsibility for continuing to fly over that area, especially given that many airlines were not doing so.  A NOTAM (notice to airmen) prohibited U.S. flights from overflying that region since April and we weren't the only ones.  I'm not saying it's totally their fault, obviously the chucklefark rebels are ultimately to blame, but well hindsight is 20/20 and all that.

Why 'Difficulty'? I don't think you're using the meme properly, subby.

I'd take the refund. No way you are going to turn a profit on eBay.

Indeed, there is no difficulty here. It sounds like they're making it very easy.

You're asking a lot from those easily outraged idiots. Very likely they have already moved on to their next target(s).

Agreed. I doubt anyone at MA expected the "rebels" to be able to shoot down a plane cruising at 33,000(i think) feet.

It prohibited flying over Crimea specifically, not that region. Other airlines have stopped flying over the path where the plane went down only since the day it happened.

Chinese are terrible superstitious. So, I think they're going bankrupt, just not within the next week.
