Seven weeks after the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, the air carrier is cutting its daily service to the Chinese capital by half.

The flight that was MH370, a red-eye renumbered as MH318, is being cancelled effective May 1.

The airline has been hurt by what has been viewed as a bungled handling of the MH370's disappearance, both in its leadership of the investigation and in dealing with families of the missing, the majority of whom are Chinese citizens.

Malaysia Airlines MH370 dropped from radar on March 8 during a schedule flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, with 239 passengers and crew aboard. No verified communication or objects from the plane have been received or found since then. Along with 154 Chinese passengers, a number of members of Beijing's international community remain missing, including Wood. Wood was one of three Americans on board, an IBM executive in the process of moving from China to Malaysia, with his partner, Sarah Bajc, a former contributor to the Beijinger sister publication beijingkids, who has since completed the move to Kuala Lumpur, according to her Facebook page.
