Default Another MH headed to the Southern Ocean?

‘The flight plan the airline filed with us was going to Kuala Lumpur but via a slightly different route than the pilot was expecting,’ she said.

Planes sometimes travel across the south of Australia on the way to their destination to avoid head-winds, New Zealand aviation commentator Peter Clark said.

‘The pilot was probably not used to going that far south,’ he said.

‘The pilot has done a very good job by noticing it, querying it and not just blindly flying off and ending up in the Southern Ocean.’

I'm surprised they didn't just fly the plane straight to Diego Garcia this time
