Track them with eighty year old radar technology instead of by GPS. Leave the beacon path and the plane might as well not exist.
Every time you put a loved one on a transcontinental plane, remember that. It is the greed of the airlines and their political weight that keeps us only a step ahead of Amelia Earhart.
If everyone who needed to fly to a different continent decided their life was worth more and cancelled their plans until this changed, this travesty would go away in two years.
For those with relatives on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, my heart goes out to you.
For the rest of us, we could change this.
