LETTERS from Malaysia Airlines | Malaysia Airlines refers to the article 'Malaysia Airlines Flight Forced Into Emergency Landing After Flying Over Icelandic' published by a web portal – worldnewsdaily.com.
The airline is deeply troubled that such irresponsible articles and amateurish 'reporting' was allowed by the editors of the news portal to be published, and it urges the public to not to be fooled by such blatant lies.
Whilst not wishing to dignify the full content of the article to any extent, due to the malicious absurdity of the author's claims, it was reported that "flight MH131 from Paris to New York was forced to land in Iceland when its pilots flew the B777 aircraft almost directly over the active Bardarbunga volcano".
MAS feels compelled to bring such glaring falsehoods to the attention of the public.
