Of the 239 people missing with Flight 370, among them are the crew, including co-pilot Fariq Ab Hamid. In the days since the aircrafts mysterious disappearance, new information from Hamid's career has surfaced, including an occasion in 2011 during which he's said to have invited a pair of young women into the cockpit for an unauthorized visit.
On Tuesday evening, one of the women – Jonti Roos – joined "Piers Morgan Live" to describe the event:
"My friend and I were standing in line at the boarding gate with all the other passengers waiting to board. And the co-pilots and pilots walked past us, and then came back to us and asked us if we would like to sit with them in the cockpit during the flight. We said 'yes,'" explained Roos, appearing via Skype from Australia. "We boarded the plane normally with all the other passengers and went to our seats. A short while after taking our seats, an air hostess came to us and asked us if we would like to move into the cockpit, after which we did. And that's where we spent the flight." FULL POST
Not once in any of her previous "Piers Morgan Live" visits has Chelsea Handler pulled any punches.
Not when she stressed the importance of "sleeping around with people you work with".
Certainly not when she spoke of her attempt to read "50 Shades of Grey", before giving up, and ultimately describing the book as "poorly written" and "trash".
And not even when the television personality and comedian weighed in on Sarah Palin, referring to the former Alaskan governor as "not a serious person".
So, it should come as little surprise that the 39-year-old star of "Chelsea Lately" held nothing back when sitting across from Piers Morgan on Monday evening.
As the topic turned to social media, the host attempted to pay his guest a compliment, noting "you tweet very amusingly."
In classic fashion, Handler fired back, and not in a loving way:
"I wish you did."
Knocking the host for his lack of focus, the author of the new book "Uganda Be Kidding Me" really lit into her fellow late-night colleague.
"You can't even pay attention for sixty seconds. You're a terrible interviewer," she said.
Attempting to defend himself, Morgan offered the following explanation:
"Well, you just weren't keeping my attention."
Handler, however, wasn't having it:
"That's not my problem ... this is your show. You have to pay attention to the guests that you invited on your show ... it doesn't matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this show," she insisted.
Morgan continued to suggest that it was the guests fault for not being interesting enough. At this point, Handler went where only she could go, unleashing a zinger that left an embarrassed Morgan speechless:
"Well, maybe that's why your job is coming to an end."
Trying desperately to redeem himself, Morgan went to the well with one of his usual questions, asking Handler about the prospect of reliving one hour of her life.
Without hesitation, she hammered him once more:
"It would be spending this hour differently."
Watch the above clip for more, as the host begs his guest to "be nice." And, for the next episode of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9p.

Dating back to the shows origins in January of 2011, television personality Chelsea Handler has been a welcome breath of fresh – if not inappropriate – air, as one of the most unabashedly honest and least censored "Piers Morgan Live" guests of all-time.
With the 39-year-old set to return Monday evening, we've taken the liberty of revisiting some of Handler's most noteworthy comments and moments. FULL POST
A Boeing 777-200 aircraft carrying 239 people is missing.
The flight left Kuala Lampur, bound for Beijing, but lost contact with Malaysia Airlines.
The plane was one hour into its flight when communication ceased, and based on the amount of fuel the aircraft was carrying, Malaysia Airlines says that it's extremely unlikely the plane is still in the air.
Waiting tables at your neighborhood Applebee's.
Logging a few barrista shifts at the campus coffee shop.
Even spending Friday night babysitting a couple of your professor's rug-rats.
These, are some of the typical jobs held by many college students. Performing hardcore sex acts on camera for money? Less common. But this is the part time profession selected by "Belle Knox," a Duke University freshman using porn as a way to offset her robust tuition costs.
After being outed by a classmate, "Knox" opted to publicly reveal her identity with an article titled "I'm the Duke University Freshman Porn Star And For The First Time I'm Telling The Story In My Words," which she wrote for xoJane.com. Joining "Piers Morgan Live" exclusively Thursday evening, she spoke of being empowered by her choice to join the adult film industry: FULL POST
With a global news cycle currently dominated by unrest in Ukraine, and the corresponding Russian involvement, this week has seen a pair of television personalities steal a bit of the headlines themselves.
The first such journalist is Abby Martin, host of "Breaking the Set" on Russia Today America (RT), a network funded by the Russian government. Distressed by her company's blind support of Russian military action in Ukraine, Martin concluded her program on Monday with an impassioned denouncement of the presence of Russian troops in the Ukranian peninsula of Crimea, land that was controlled by the Soviet Union until its breakup in 1991.
"Military intervention is never the answer," Martin stated on RT. "And I will not sit here and apologize (for) and defend military aggression."
In telling Piers Morgan that her program offers editorial freedom, and that she's experienced support from her network since the incident, Martin suggested that other media outlets aren't allowed the same leeway: FULL POST
While the legendary series may suggest that "father" knows best, in a household of three ambitious boys, each of whom who would aspire to immensely successful careers, it's actually the brothers that likely know one another better than anyone.
Such was the case within the Emanuels of Illinois – Rahm, Ezekiel, and Ari – a polarizing politician, brilliant scholar, and groundbreaking talent agent respectively. So, when the mayor of Chicago opted to throw caution, and his health, to the wind, it came as little surprise that his medically astute brother would have an opinion.
"I always knew he was crazy, it seems nuts to me," Ezekiel told Piers Morgan Tuesday evening, referencing his younger brother's recent "polar plunge" alongside Jimmy Fallon and into a frigid Lake Michigan. FULL POST
Edgar Martirosyan assumed he was simply going to deliver a few pizzas. Not unlike the pies he's passed out seemingly 100 times before. He'd ring the bell, accept payment and quickly head out for the next order.
But this wasn't any ordinary order. And it was to be no ordinary delivery. Instead of dropping by a typical Los Angeles home or business, Martirosyan's stop on Sunday was at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, and it was Ellen DeGeneres with the rumbling tummy.
It didn't matter that the 56-year-old comedian and television icon was in the middle of hosting the 86th edition of The Oscars. She was craving a couple of large pies and Martirosyan was making the delivery.
"I was shocked and I came out with the pizzas, they told me, wait, the pizzas are for writers," Martirosyan explained to Piers Morgan and Maria Menounos Monday evening. "I was waiting, and then Ellen came out and told me, 'I'm going to tell you to follow me.'" FULL POST
Once again donning a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo, and this time around pairing the ensemble with a Tom Ford shirt, on Sunday evening Piers Morgan stood "suited and booted" amongst the world's biggest film stars, anchoring CNN's red carpet coverage of the 86th Academy Awards.
For nearly two hours the "Piers Morgan Live" host did what he does best: rubbed elbows and traded jabs with the likes of Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kate Hudson, while nearly charming the white dinner jacket off the back of Jared Leto.

Techy businessman, Dallas Mavericks owner, "Shark Tank" investor ... self-made billionaire Mark Cuban wears many hats, including "dad" to three children with wife Tiffany Stewart.
Joining Piers Morgan this evening for a face to face, primetime interview, Cuban details the challenges that come with raising down-to-earth kids amidst massive wealth. Having started out bar tending and couch-crashing before innovating his way to the top, instilling values into his son and two daughters is part of Cuban's at-home business plan. However, the 55-year-old also preaches and leads with an overlying theme of balance:
"I don't want to be the overbearing dad," Cuban tells the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "I want to be supportive. I want them to love what they do." FULL POST
