Malaysia Airlines in Total Strategy Revision Following Two Tragedies in Half Year

 Malaysia Airlines is planning to take a range of measures, aimed to restore the image of the flag carrier and reshaping the airline strategy following two deadly tragedies over the past six months, The Telegraph reported on Sunday.

“MH17 has shown us that airlines can no longer rely on existing industry bodies for this information,” he elaborated.
