As the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 deepens, the question has to be asked: will global tourism suffer?
And the logical answer is yes, not on a 911 scale, perhaps, but there will be an impact. There just has to be.
This saga has now been dragging on for more than two weeks, fragile emotions exacerbated by the apparent incompetence of govt officials charged with:
1. Not allowing this to happen in the first place
2. Finding any trace of the aircraft and its 239 passengers
With no closure, no evidence of the aircraft or its passengers, international air travel does not look or feel safe once again.
The message is that your aircraft could be hijacked or simply disappear.
And the officials will be no help – either before or after the fact.
Two passengers on MH370 were travelling on false passports. How that happen?
Now Malaysian officials can't find the plane, which looks really bad even though it is an enormous task.
