In the search for the missing Malaysian Airlines jet, an unmanned robotic submarine has covered about two-thirds of its search area, scouring the seafloor of the Indian Ocean for any trace of the missing Flight MH370, with no luck so far.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 people on board, vanished March 8 after leaving Kuala Lumpur for Beijing. The search for the missing Boeing 777 has continued to frustrate international search teams with many false leads.

According to The Associated Press, the U.S. Navy's Bluefin 21 submersible has made eight trips searching a six-mile radius around the location of a signal that was believed to have come from the missing aircraft's black boxes, the AP reported.

Ten military aircraft and 11 ships continued to search a 19,000-square-mile area of the ocean’s surface Monday.

Malaysia’s Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Hamzah Zainuddin talked with relatives on Sunday about financial assistance, Time said, but family members wouldn’t discuss compensation without evidence that the plane crashed.

Australia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Kim Beazley told CNN that the search team would “regroup and reconsider” if nothing is discovered, possibly including changing the search area or calling off air and surface operations.

“You may well also consider bringing in other underwater search equipment,” he said. “All these sorts of things will be on the table if nothing is found in the next few days.”

Also on Monday, Malaysia Airlines reported an emergency landing after a plane’s tire burst on takeoff from Kuala Lumpur. All 159 passengers and seven crew members were safely returned to the airport, the AP reported.

On March 24, a Malaysia Airlines flight to South Korea had to make an emergency landing in Hong Kong after a main electrical generator failed.
