3:10 Feature Interview - Richard Quest

"Good night Malaysian 370". Those are the last words from the cockpit of  a Malaysia Airlines flight  from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8th, 2014.  Then, all communications from the plane stopped.  Just over two years later, bits of the plane have washed up off the coast of East Africa in the Indian Ocean.  Australian officials called off the search for the plane in June.  The  mystery  continues as does the agony for the families of the 239 people onboard.  It's a mystery that haunts  CNN Aviation correspondent and Money Editor Richard Quest.  His new book, The Vanishing of Flight MH370: The True Story of Hunt for the Missing Malaysian Plane looks at the botched search efforts, dreadful handling with the families and the safety issues raised by the disappearance of MH370.
