      Malaysia Airlines renames `bucket list' promotion

      KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Malaysia Airlines has renamed a promotional campaign asking people what countries are on their "bucket list" to visit after acknowledging it was inappropriate given the two deadly disasters it has suffered this year.

      A bucket list is a term used to describe a list of activities that people want to do or places they want to see before they die. The airline said in a statement Thursday that it had withdrawn the title because it was "found to be inappropriate at this point in time." A Malaysia Airlines jet with 239 people on board went missing March 8 while en route to Beijing and no trace of it has been found. In July, a Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down over Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board.
