Malaysia Airlines' future questioned

It is hard enough for an airline to rebound from one disaster, let alone two within the space of a few months.
Even before the disappearance of flight MH370 in March this year, Malaysia Airlines was struggling.
Last week, all 298 people on its flight MH17 died when it was reportedly hit by a missile.
So, is there any hope that the airline can rebound after such a rough year?
Aviation analyst Chris de Lavigne, from consulting firm Frost & Sullivan, considers the options.
