Dutch cyclist booked flights on both doomed Malaysia Airlines planes
21-07-2014 by Daily Telegraph - Leave a Comment

A Dutch man has escaped death twice after being booked to fly on both doomed Malaysia Airlines flights before changing his tickets at the last minute.

Maarten De Jonge, a 29-year-old cyclist from Oldenzaal in Holland rides with Malaysia’s Terengganu Cycling Team.

He was scheduled to take missing flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur in March to compete in Taiwan for a race, but switched to another flight to avoid having a stopover.

In another strange twist of fate, he was also booked to fly on flight MH17 that was believed to have been shot from the sky by Russian rebels killing all 298 on-board, but changed his ticket for a later flight on the weekend to save some money.

De Jonge told Netherlands public broadcaster RTV Oost : “I could have taken that one just as easily.

“It’s inconceivable. I am very sorry for the passengers and their families, yet I am very pleased I’m unharmed.”
