Malaysia Airlines says there's no evidence of phone contact from Flight 370
Telecom experts say plane may have been flying too high or fast for passengers to make calls
"Technically it is possible" that cell towers in Malaysia or Thailand could have registered a signal from phones
It’s a popular question on social media: Why didn’t passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 make mobile calls?
Many recall that when United Flight 93 was hijacked on September 11, 2001, passengers were able to make two cell phone calls during the flight’s final moments. Several other calls were made using airphones.
If metadata was detected from cell phones on Flight 370, surely it would shed more light on the missing plane’s flight path?
The plane may have been flying too high or too fast to register with cell towers, according to telecoms experts, but careful analysis of the passengers’ cell phone records will need to be completed to be certain.
