They said the airline and the government had been negligent and failed to take all due measures to ensure a safe flight.

The plane disappeared on 8 March while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. It was believed to have gone down in a remote patch of the Indian Ocean, where a search is ongoing.
