    No, the 777 is a single but they show a double in the picture, that must be an A-380 as that is the only double in the Malaysian fleet.

    Very sad. I worked for Boeing as a design engineer on the 777. Hopefully people have survived this tragedy.

    I was going to make a comment about Nam using SAMs again, but this is not going to end well.

    Route is mostly overland ... so it should be found.
