After suffering two of the worst aviation disasters this year, Malaysia Airlines is now said to be making daily operating losses of $1.6million.
The airline is now experiencing flights which are almost completely empty, according to pictures posted on social media.

In March, flight 370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared with 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board. The wreckage has never been found but it is thought the plane crashed somewhere in the southern Indian Ocean, with no survivors.
Then last month flight 17 from Amsterdam to the Malaysian capital was shot down while flying above eastern Ukraine, killing 283 passengers and 15 crew members.
