This has turned up time and again, but it has been declared false by several a.net contributors:
SEPANG: A BOEING 777 pilot, who was flying 30 minutes ahead of the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft, said he established contact with MH370 minutes after he was asked to do so by Vietnamese air traffic control.
The captain, who asked to not be named, said his plane, which was bound for Narita, Japan, was far into Vietnamese airspace when he was asked to relay, using his plane's emergency frequency, to MH370 for the latter to establish its position, as the authorities could not contact the aircraft.
"We managed to establish contact with MH370 just after 1.30am and asked them if they have transferred into Vietnamese airspace.
"The voice on the other side could have been either Captain Zaharie (Ahmad Shah, 53,) or Fariq (Abdul Hamid, 27), but I was sure it was the co-pilot.
"There were a lot of interference... static... but I heard mumbling from the other end.
"That was the last time we heard from them, as we lost the connection," he told the New Sunday Times.
- DISPUTE: No link(s) is (are) supplied above to debunk the claim that a nearby B777 made contact with MH370. The supplier of this wiki entry is urged to post links in support of the notion that a perfectly logical event - a nearby pilot complying with ATC's request to contact an unresponsive aircraft on 121.5 mHz - did not in fact occur.
