Why?

Cherie Howie has a story on MH370 number plates…playing catch up on a post we did some time ago which featured this photo.

MH370

Featured on WOBH April14 via Twitter – Simon Day @simondangerday

Personalised number plates bearing the flight number of the Malaysia Airlines ghost flight have been sold since the jetliner vanished on March 8.

Personalised Plates owner Jeremy Lubeck said the plates MH370 and MH37O — the latter in bright red markings — had been sold by his company since the flight disappeared. Each was sold for $599.

The red-coloured plate has been spotted on a Holden vehicle in Auckland, but the other plate remains on layby and has not yet been sent to its owners.

Transport Agency spokesman Andrew Knackstedt was not aware of the plates and, while there were restrictions on what number plates could be registered, the motivation of personalised plate buyers was not always clear.

“You have to see how it will be be viewed by society at large. It is subjective, but we still need to draw that line somewhere.”

$600 a pop for a MH370 or MH37O plate.

Another ign the economy is in good shape.  If people think that’s a good use of their disposable income, they’re obviously not on the breadline.
