  1. Apparently the 2x weekly YIA and PKU flights are Umrah feeder services. Most of the seats are already blocked by agents, hence not much room for commercial sales and media hype.
  2. How does the A330neo decision being unstrategic? Enlighten the community please.
  3. Looks like AirAsia is learning from MH then. Had my flight to SIN changed 3x on AK recently. From 8am departure retimed/changed to 5pm. So AK is not dependable too.
  4. Not that spaces are limited in KUL. Plenty of ample bays for long term parking.
  5. Give it a year once the world reaches herd immunity and the A380s will be active again doing Umrah/Hajj runs like before. Umrah is actually a very big business and I remember pre-covid days MAB was approached by a number of agencies from PRC to operate direct to Saudi Arabia carrying mainland Chinese Muslim Pilgrims for Umrah. It was suppose to kick off this year, however Covid happened. All they need to do is to hang on another 12 months and things will start changing gear back to normal. Lets not be too negative about MH, this time its not their fault. The whole world aviation industry is suffering.
  6. In trying times like this, its a good time to let go of the more elderly staff. I.e approaching retirement, above 60 and contract staff. Give way to the younger ones to live through their commitments. Golden age staff are usually at the peak of their pay brackets. Was told Malindo and AirAsia group are resorting to this. Something MH Group can consider.
  7. Don't be surprised if some of them are getting 120k a mth.
  8. When a corporation have issues paying staff salaries, its days are numbered. Hopefully Malindo survive this wave through this measures.
  9. Thats not how the state govt sees it. Otherwise we wont be talking about this issue. Anyway, the issue is not about them having difficulties getting home. As what the CM said in the news they have been given options to go back via KUL but not doing so in fear of their health once back in China.
  10. This Visa extension is a sensitive issue especially for Sabah when you have other immigration issues at hand (illegal filipinos etc etc). Any special attention given to PRC tourist/citizen will certainly be silver bullets for the opposition party, so this goes beyond the surface and should not be looked at from a medical refugee point of view. For the fact that Sabah CM openly say they don't have enough resources to handle the outbreak (as scary as it seems) is a lot better than saying we are well prepared and equipped with number of patients rising like wildfire. Take a look at Singapore for instance, now everyone down south is in panic mode. I remember reading a statement from one of Singapore's minister last week saying Singapore is out of danger.
  11. If it would have involved MH+Khazanah im sure this topic would have reached 10 pages by now. But since its about AAGB, TF and not the rakyats money, nobody cares.
  12. Exactly. This is what happens when people become too intelligent. Can find their way to post a silly rant in a Malaysian based aviation forum but just can't read simple signs all over the airport terminal building.
  13. Kamarudin, Fernandes relinquish posts in AirAsia https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2020/02/04/kamarudin-fernandes-relinquish-posts-in-airasia
  14. ID benefits are only extended to airline employees. ATC staff as we know are govt servants. There are some countries which outsource their ATC service to private companies to be runned as independent entities. But not here in Malaysia as it comes under Ministry of Transport via CAAM.
  15. Ask the govt, they own MH. Its not MH who makes the decision.
