BEIJING, March 14 (Xinhua) -- Conflicting information about flight MH370 results from looking for the truth, a senior executive with Malaysia Airlines told Xinhua Friday.
Malaysia Airlines is a commercial airline and some searches were initiated by the government which does not report to the airline. "They didn't tell us which ship was in which area," said Hugh Dunleavy, commercial director of Malaysia Airlines in an interview with Xinhua.
Families of the missing have reported that their loved ones' phones were still ringing days after the plane disappeared, causing widespread speculation.
"There is one phone still ringing now. We passed the number to the telecommunications company but details are confidential. If I tell family members that it is not real, I am taking away their hope," Dunleavy said.
"Normally air traffic control receives data from the aircraft, but this time they did not. Not one single signal was received, which seems like a big mystery to me," he added.
Until now, searchers have failed to find any trace of the plane.
"We are here to look after the families of passengers on board MH370 and we will keep searching," he added.
