I don't understand how they can 'lose' a plane in today's world..with GPS tracking, autopilot, etc

Yeah, I agree. It's kind of amazing that anything like a plane full of people could just vanish. I hope this one has a happy ending, though I know it probably won't. Much like the Flying Priest in Brazil.

Maybe there's just something about flying near Brazil that's inherently dangerous?

Because they crossed the paths of where two dangerous air currents meet, the plane went down. (Combined with electrical problems, and lightning, and just a perfect stew of a worst case scenario). Debris is found, no survivors, can't get the blackbox either since it's like sunk deep down to the depths of the titanic... CNN's jumping on the story and going OMG PLANE VANISHED IN THIN AIR was retarded. (No hurricanes to exploit so they're probably really bored in that news studio).

And thus my file on why I hate air travel grows.
