Quoting mcoatc (Reply 72):
And this same fire wouldn't create other faults that might generate an ACARS message prior to that system being disabled itself? The fire would have not allowed any radio transmissions, but the plane would have still been flyable for hours? Methinks not.

yeah

QUICK INTRO....I have been a reader of Airliners.net for many years and now just signed up as a result of the extra ordinary circumstances in relation to MH370 which I have followed since day1...I am an ex QF longhaul F/A .. my period of employment by QF being 1989-2011

SO... here's my theory based on my knowledge and the 'confirmed' info given by the 'authorities' via the press conferences thus far given to the public...

one of the pilots incapacitated the other pilot..could be done quickly with the right tool, and believe it or not, some airlines allow their flight crew onto aircraft WITHOUT going thru pre flight sreening that pax go thru.. ie NO body/hand luggage screening of flight crew

this lone pilot now has complete control of aircraft..turning off 'systems' ..telling cabin crew via phone AND pax via inflight PA, that due to a 'problem' they need to return to KL.. AVOD must be shut down because of the 'problem'... inflight crew inform cabin crew that 'such and such' will be happening via handset..cabin crew believe what they are being told...no reason not to!!! and pax believe what the flight crew tell them too!!...all the more believable on a flight IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

and I actually believe the 'turnback' and 'ping' heard by the military belongs to MH370 (the Malay military and authorites 'incompetence' is a WHOLE OTHER ISSUE)

I conclude that MH370 has been 'hijacked' by a suicidal flight crew member...and flown over the Indian Ocean and taken a quick dive into the ocean...no time for ANYONE (pax or crew) in the cabin to react...as they were told all is fine...in the DARK OF THE NIGHT they were just returning to KL to fix the 'problem'

now after day 6 I fear the depth and vastness of the Indian Ocean has 'swallowed' MH370 .....along with the fact that no one is searching that ocean

honestly, that makes probably the most sense out of all the theories i've come across.

Quoting 777Jet (Reply 135):
Can't believe why the exact fuel figure has not yet been made public. That would at least give MAS and the SAR / authorities a maximum radius to consider.

It is possible they have no record of it. I do not know the specifics at MH, however with some airlines if the crew requests additional fuel they can get it with no record of how much is on-board at departure. The fuel provider records total gallons (or Liters), in order to bill the airline, yet the end pounds (or kilos) on board may be unknown.
