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:
