What’s new, asks daughter of MH370 chief steward after latest report

Investigators should probe deeper rather than relying on regurgitated data, says Maira Elizabeth Nari.

GEORGE TOWN: The 495 pages of report which supported the theory that Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 could have been taken over before vanishing came as no surprise to Maira Elizabeth Nari, more than four years after she lost her father in the incident that has remained a mystery.
Maira, the eldest child of chief steward Andrew Nari, said the report released by investigators yesterday provided nothing new, describing it as merely a collection of facts previously presented in other reports.
“I just flipped through the report. It is basically nothing much. It is what we already know, written in a different angle by a different person,” she told FMT.
The report on the plane which disappeared with 239 people during a midnight flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014, did not name anyone responsible, but said it could have been commandeered by a third party.
“The answer can only be conclusive if the wreckage is found,” Kok Soo Chon, head of the MH370 safety investigation team, told reporters. “We cannot exclude that there was an unlawful interference by a third party,” he said.
Maira said she and others who lost their loved ones are interested in one question: the current location of the plane.
The answer to this was not available to investigators.
Flight MH370 has become one of the world’s greatest aviation mysteries. Malaysia called off the last search in May. An earlier search by Australia, China and Malaysia was fruitless and cost close to US$150 million for a search covering an area of 120,000 sq km last year.
Maira said investigators should probe deeper rather than relying on regurgitated data.
She said families of passengers were not interested in jargon, saying how the report was presented was important.
“Other countries are doing documentaries, doing research, and have their own theories – those are much more interesting and worth listening to or watching,” said Maira.
Maira, 22, a college student, said she was still trying to come to grips with the loss of her father.
“Most of the time I feel that I have let it go, but sometimes it just comes back and hits you all over again and then you get over it.” -FMT
