MH370: Action Taken Against ‘Compensation,’ Passengers Still Alive?

MH370 is still missing without a trace after seven months. Malaysia Airlines has begun compensating families of the 239 passengers and crew that were on board the Boeing 777 back in March, but at least one person has refused to accept the money. Of course, accepting the money would mean accepting that the passengers on the plane are dead… and some people still are not ready to do that. According to Emirates247, a woman named Danica Weeks believes that her husband Paul might still out there somewhere… alive.

While much of the initial hope has faded away, there are some people who are hanging on to the last bit — and Weeks might be one of those people. She has been quite proactive since the plane’s disappearance, and is even responsible for setting up a group called Voice370, where families of passengers can talk, cry, express frustrations, and compare notes.

MH370 compensation is probably not as much as you would think. According to The International Business Times, Weeks was only offered about $64,000. That’s not to say that there wouldn’t be more coming. Weeks told a media outlet that the money came with one string attached: Families were asked to fill out a “questionnaire” in exchange for the money. Weeks says that she was given legal advice not to accept the money — and she said that the money didn’t even mean anything to the families because it wouldn’t make up for the incredible losses that they are suffering.

“Malaysia Airlines cannot undo this tragedy. However, a fair and adequate compensation for all would reflect the magnitude of the effect this tragedy has had on our lives and should be commensurate to this being the worst air tragedy the industry has ever seen,” said Voice370 as a collective whole.

Malaysia Airlines MH370 still remains a mystery. According to The Inquisitr, experts believe that they are going to find this aircraft. It might take over a year… or longer… but the technology that is being used should lead to the fuselage. Some experts also believe that the plane’s black boxes will be found intact. This would be crucial in learning more about what happened to the plane after it disappeared from radar. There is a chance, however, that the black boxes won’t yield enough information to solve the mystery, but there will be quite a few families able to get some closure either way.
