Air Asia X pilot suspended over FB post on MH370

PETALING JAYA: An Air Asia X pilot has been suspended by the low-cost carrier after suggesting on Facebook that the Government is hiding information on the missing Malaysia Airlines plane.

Air Asia chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes confirmed on Twitter late Tuesday night that the senior first officer had been suspended and that an internal investigation was pending.

The Boeing 777-200 airliner with 239 on board has been missing since March 8 and believed to have crashed somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean, way off its original course for Beijing.
