On the Facebook page, Malaysia Airlines cabin crew were described as among the most friendly and gracious in the sky.
“They always return a passing smile with a hospitable and sincere response that lets you know they care,” said Fly Guy.
“There aren’t many crew like that in our skies these days, which is why I can honestly say those MH crew we have lost this year are missed dearly. Our blue skies grew a bit darker today.”
