Malaysia Airlines sued over loss of Flight MH370

A Malaysian woman has sued Malaysia Airlines and the government for $7.6 million in damages over the loss of her husband on Flight MH370. More lawsuits are expected to be filed in the next few days ahead of a two-year filing deadline over air accidents set by a global aviation agreement.

The Boeing 777 with 239 people on board, vanished after flying far off course for unknown reasons during a flight from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Beijing on March 8, 2014.

This first lawsuit claims the airline is responsible for the alleged wrongful death of S.Puspanathan due to alleged negligence and breach of contract by the airline and government agencies. The lawsuit has also named the immigration department, as well as the civil aviation department and the Malaysian air force, for losing track of the aircraft.
