The co-pilot must have been knocked out cold during that time and all flight crew weren't able to serve the pilot food or drinks during the time he bolted himself in the cockpit. The flight crew must be thinking it is normal.
When are they going to sieve out the illogical and focus on the real possible causes?
Yup . So ridiculous.
I guess they are over zealous to blame someone. And the easiest is to claim that pilot committed suicide.
If he wanted to commit suicide, he would have plunged the plane into S China Sea.
Easier, and just as effective.
Also, that way it wouldn't look so suspicious. And his family would be spared the agony of wondering how they failed to help their father. And the agony of reading and hearing people all around them blaming their father.
However, I'm not saying that the pilot had nothing to do with the disappearance of the plane. Cos it could be something else. But not suicide.
