Analyst: If Malaysia had followed protocol, we wouldn't be looking for Flight 370 today

(CNN) - Air traffic controllers assumed that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 had turned back from Malaysia because of mechanical trouble, according to Reuters.

If that is true, they did not follow proper protocol, and if they had, "we wouldn't even be talking about this today," says CNN aviation analyst and pilot Miles O'Brien discuss.

"There was a narrow window there to stop this whole thing from happening," said O'Brien.
