SEPANG: Five passengers checked-in to fly on missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 — but didn't board the plane.

Azharuddin Abdul Rahman (pic), head of Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation, confirmed reports that five passengers who had purchased tickets and checked baggage did not make the flight.


He said Malaysia Airlines had removed those passengers' baggage once it learned they did not board the plane, in accordance with standard procedure.

"But we have to remove the baggage that they checked in... we have done so on this aircraft," he said.

He also said authorities were still waiting for an analysis of oil samples taken from a slick in the sea to determine whether it was from the plane. Another official had said results could come Monday afternoon.

"We are looking at every angle. We are looking at every aspect of what could have happened," he said.

"Again, we have to get concrete evidence... we have to find the aircraft." - AFP
