Indeed. If I remember correctly, MH has/had 8 of those in their fleet, and I've flown 4 flights on them. So I'd say there's close to 50/50 chance that I have at least once travelled either on the MRO or MRD (or even both). I still remember the planes, they were brand new at the time, everything really state of the art, good food, friendly crew, and I remember gazing out of the window several times in the dark, seeing the illuminated RR logo on the engine cover. While crossing over Australia, there was insanely heavy tailwind, the ground speed would have broken the sound barrier, it was over 1100km/h.
What happened to these 2 doomed planes makes me really sad actually, and I feel somehow being a part of their history.
