(03-13 13:25)

Malaysia Airlines has retired the missing Boeing 777's flight code as a sign of respect to the 239 passengers and crew on board.
The loss-making state-owned carrier said it will no longer use MH370 and MH371, the codes used by the Boeing 777 that has vanished. It was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing early Saturday.
MH370 was used for Kuala Lumpur-Beijing route and MH371 for a return flight.
Starting Friday, Malaysia Airlines said it will use codes MH318 and MH319 for twice-a-day flights to and from Beijing.—AP
