This Man Changed His Flight Last Minute For BOTH Malaysia Airline Flights

July 20, 2014

It sounds like a plot from a Final Destination movie.

A man scheduled to fly on both doomed Malaysia Airlines flights escaped an unfortunate fate after changing his ticket for each flight at the last minute.

Dutch cyclist Maarten de Jonge was supposed to fly on both Flight MH370, which has yet to be found after disappearing over the Indian Ocean in March, and MH17, which was likely shot down over Ukraine this week, reports Netherlands public broadcaster RTV Oost.

In March, the cyclist with Malaysia's Terengganu Cycling Team was scheduled to take the flight departing from Kuala Lumpur to compete in a race in Taiwan, but switched to another flight to avoid having a stopover.

He was set to take the most recent flight to return to Asia from a recent race in the Netherlands, but changed his flight for a later one this weekend.

After avoiding disaster twice, he he still plans on flying to Malaysia later this week.
