KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia Airlines in a statement says “It has become aware of the allegations being made against First Officer, Fariq Ab Hamid which we take very seriously. We are shocked by these allegations”. Melbourne-resident Jonti Roos states that she was allegedly invited by First Officer Fariq Ab Hamid into a cockpit of an international flight from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur.

“Throughout the entire flight they were talking to us and they were actually smoking throughout the flight, which I don’t think they’re allowed to do,” Ms Roos told Australian Television’s “A Current Affair”. “I know for the whole time they weren’t facing the front of the plane and actually flying.”

Additionally, there are now reports that the plane was seen flying at a lower altitude over an hour after it dissapeared from radar contact.

“The last time the flight was detected close to Pulau Perak, in the Malacca Strait, at 2.40 a.m. by the control tower before the signal was lost,” states Air Force Chief Rodzali Daud. The spokesperson for the Air Force told this to the Berita Harian newspaper.

Malaysia Airlines states, “We have not been able to confirm the validity of the pictures and videos of the alleged incident. As you are aware, we are in the midst of a crisis, and we do not want our attention to be diverted.

“We also urge the media and general public to respect the privacy of the families of our colleagues and passengers. It has been a difficult time for them. The welfare of both the crew and passenger’s families remain our focus. At the same time, the security and safety of our passengers is of the utmost importance to us”.
