No fly zone has been imposed around the whole area.
The whole area? How big of an area is that?   

It took shooting down a commercial jet for this this area to become  no fly zone. (military Jets were already shot down in that area). That is not reassuring at all

So stop flying
There was a no fly zone under 32,000 feet. The jet was at 33,000 feet.
Maybe we should impose a no fly zone anywhere where there are missiles

That would leave us with only flying over the Amish.

Crazy.
Though I don't know anyone that was on MH370 and still wouldn't have flown MH even if it was free after that craziness...

Not everyone blamed Malaysia Airlines for the disappearance. It was a very rare crazy story. Malaysia had thousands of perfect flights before and after that story.

After THIS incident however...

He's a foreign soldier. His parents aren't in Israel.

This incident had nothing to do with Malaysian Airlines. It could have happened to anybody.
The last one was either foul play, or pilot error - both related to the airline.

And I think Dan's comment was not a rational one but an emotional one

MH370 may or may not have anything to do with the airline, but the airline's and country's response was utterly incompetent.
Incompetent enough to make me avoid the airline.

I'm not sure I agree. Although I'd probably try to avoid them if I could (though I acknowledge that is irrational based on what we know about the most recent event), I'd fly them if I didn't have a better alternative.

Well well... still looks like they have some pretty loyal fans.

They'll need them if they're to stay in business.  They were bleeding money even before MH370.
