Malaysian Airlines Gets Overhaul

In the past six months, Malaysia Airlines has seen one plane go missing and another plane crash.

And now, thousands of Malaysia employees will see their jobs cut.

The airline is laying off nearly a third of its workforce, six thousand jobs in all, as it tries to revive its damaged brand.

It's part of a nearly two billion dollar overhaul.

A new company will be created, which will eventually take over the existing Malaysia Airlines.

In March, Flight 370 disappeared on its way from Kuala Lampur to Beijing.

All 239 people on board were presumed dead.

In July, Flight MH-17 was shot down while flying over rebel-held Eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 on board.
