Keesokan harinya, [[Kementerian Transportasi (Malaysia)|Menteri Transportasi Malaysia]] (sementara) membantah laporan ''The Wall Street Journal'' bahwa transmisi mesin terakhir diterima pukul 01:07, sebelum pesawat menghilang dari radar sekunder.<ref name="5hrsinair_disputed">{{cite news |date=13 March 2014 |url=http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/13/us-malaysiaairlines-flight-idUSBREA2701720140313 |title=Malaysia says no evidence missing plane flew hours after losing contact |agency=[[Reuters]] |accessdate=13 March 2014}}</ref> Laporan selanjutnya dari [[Reuters]] menyebut bahwa buktinya mungkin berupa "ping" yang dikirim oleh sistem komunikasi pesawat, bukan data (laporan [[telemetri]]).<ref>{{cite news|url=http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/13/malaysia-airlines-data-idUSL2N0MA18V20140313|title=Satellites picked up pings from Malaysia jet, source says|date=13 March 2014|agency=Reuters|accessdate=13 March 2014}}</ref>
 
''The Wall Street Journal'' kemudian mengubah laporannya dan menyatakan bahwa keyakinan bahwa pesawat tersebut masih terbang "didasarkan pada analisis sinyal yang dikirim oleh hubungan komunikasi satelit Boeing 777... hubungan yang dioperasikan dalam mode siaga (''standby'') dan berusaha membina kontak dengan sebuah satelit atau beberapa satelit. Transmisi ini tidak menyertakan data..."<ref name="5hrsinair"/><ref name="CBSradar"/> [[Inmarsat]] mengatakan bahwa "sinyal otomatis yang rutin tercatat" di jaringannya,<ref>[http://www.inmarsat.com/news/inmarsat-statement-malaysia-airlines-flight-mh370/ Inmarsat statement on Malaysia Airlines flight MH370]. [[Inmarsat]]. 14 March 2014.</ref> dan seorang eksekutif perusahaan menambahkan bahwa "pesan hidup" terus dikirimkan setelah pengawas lalu lintas udara pertama kali kehilangan kontak dan "sinyal-sinyal ping" ini dapat dianalisis untuk membantu memperkirakan lokasi pesawat.<ref>Chris Buckley and Nicola Clark (14 March 2014), [http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/15/world/asia/missing-malaysia-airlines-flight-370.html Satellite Firm Says Its Data From Jet Could Offer Location] ''[[The New York Times]]''.</ref>
 
Pada tanggal 14 Maret, ''[[The Independent]]'' menulis bahwa, berdasarkan pengiriman ping yang rutin oleh pesawat, pesawat ini mungkin tidak terbelah (disintegrasi) di udara atau mengalami peristiwa mendadak lain: "semua sinyal{{snd}}ping ke satelit, pesan data, dan transponder{{snd}}pasti berhenti pada waktu yang sama".<ref name=indie9192974>{{cite news |url =http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/missing-malaysia-airlines-flight-mh370-sources-claim-military-radar-data-shows-plane-was-diverted-to-andaman-islands-9192974.html|title =Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Military radar shows jet could have been 'hijacked' and then flown towards Andaman Islands |work =[[The Independent]]|author=Heather Saul|date=14 March 2014|accessdate = 19 March 2014}}</ref> Setelah [[serangan 11 September|serangan 11 September 2001]], ketika transponder di tiga pesawat yang dibajak dimatikan,<ref name="cbsnews">{{cite web | url =http://www.cbsnews.com/news/malaysia-airlines-flight-370-mystery-raises-new-transponder-questions/| title =Why can plane transponders be turned off from the cockpit? |publisher =[[CBS News]]|date=19 March 2014| accessdate =19 March 2014}}</ref> banyak pihak mengusulkan pemasangan transponder otomatis;<ref name="cbsnews"/> tetapi tidak ada perubahan yang dilakukan karena para pakar penerbangan lebih memilih kendali yang fleksibel seandainya suatu saat perlu diset ulang akibat kesalahan teknis atau arus pendek.<ref name="cbsnews"/>
