Summary'I never worried like this before what happened with the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370'

London from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport after a business trip to Thailand and Cambodia:

“Flying is still probably the safest means of transport. And until we find the plane and find out what happened, I think that stays the case.''

Sinead Boylan, 26, of Liverpool, England, flying from Bangkok to Australia after backpacking across Asia:

“It's scarier than it was. I'm a little more cautious, a little more worried, I'd say.''

Kim Hyun-shik, 56, a retired banker traveling out of Seoul's Incheon International Airport for a 10-day trip to Turkey with his wife:

“It makes me a little nervous. ... It's amazing to think that people have disappeared, just like that. Science has developed so much, yet we can't do a basic search of a jet. As time goes by, it will be like trying to find a needle in a river.''

Skander Aissa, who works in the finance industry in Connecticut, at the airport train in Hong Kong. He and his wife were traveling to Taiwan after visiting a friend:

“No fear. You take a risk when you take the plane all the time, anyway. It doesn't matter if you're flying now or tomorrow. It is what it is.''

Jacques Niclair, a 65-year-old Mauritius businessman who arrived at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on a Malaysia Airlines flight from Colombo, Sri Lanka:

“I can tell you that I slept very well on board. It didn't affect me. I was not worried. ... As long as we don't know what happened to the plane, we should be supportive of Malaysia Airlines. It is going through a tough time.''

Wajihah Abdul Fatah, 19, a Malaysian student headed home on a Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to her hometown in Sarawak state on Borneo island:

“I am so very afraid that something will happen to my plane like MH370, but I just have to believe in Allah and pray that I will be safe. I have to fly. I have no choice because I miss my family.''

Nurul Shuhada Rosnan, 19, was at the Kuala Lumpur airport to see off Wajihah, her friend:

``I have decided not to take any flight for the next two years. How can a plane just disappear like that?''

Joyce Cole, who lives near Perth, Australia, where she was catching a flight to Bali, Indonesia, for a holiday:

``I'm still fine with flying. But when it first happened, you think, `Oh my goodness.' But you do it that regularly
