  1. Well I thought Proton wasn't for sale, until Geely bought it over. So all eyes is on the new government on how to resolve the MH problem. So far I think the new transport minister has been kind to MH, with no ultimatum/pressure whatsoever to cut manpower or close it down entirely. However, I also don't see them entertaining any request to bail MH this time around.


    Perhaps MH should look at what happened to SABENA and maybe work towards that. SABENA was closed down in 2006 and Brussels Airlines was born from this. No point in harping on having 2 or more airlines if clearly there is 1 monopoly. We need a strong contender to fight AK and MH is not the one. Imagine for every promo seat you try to match your competitor and you lose money.


    I have also noticed that AK seems to be the airline of choice for the new government.

    Direct flights to Sabah's east coast airports (SDK and TWU) was one of Mdm Liew's first proposals after assuming the tourism portfolio, no ?


    Inevitably this brings up the issue of whether the airports can handle more flights. Sandakan airport terminal is relatively new and they have extended the runway before that. Tawau airport is old, but not that old either. Both airports lack terminal space and boarding gates. Tawau also need to rework the check-in/immigration counters if they want to handle more pax. AK might just start complaining if KLIA2 could be used as a reference in this case.


    Moving forward, perhaps a small airport ala Kudat should be built in Semporna to take some of the load from Tawau airport?
