A DP member who is also a 777 pilot. This is great.

I recommend that you make this an "original" contribution.

Apparently, the engines now ran for longer than the four hours initially reported. There was enough fuel for seven hours, but not at a 5,000 foot altitude.

"Citing sources, the report said the system “pings” about once every hour and in the case of MH370, around five or six such pulses were heard. This could mean that MH370, which was ferrying 239 people, had continued to fly on for a number of hours after it left the radar screens."

It's come out that a phone call was made from the cockpit by the pilot just be fore takeoff. It that normal/allowed? What about the last words spoken by the co-pilot "All right, Good night?" Thanks for anymore info.
