  1. I seem to recall MH already committing to a fleet renewal. Then and10t went and cancelled it all.
  2. Malaysia to stop funding national carrier if lessor talks fail According to the latest document, under a “Plan B” scenario, Khazanah would “inject funds into Firefly directly to start new jet operations at Kuala Lumpur on a much smaller scale, focusing first on domestic services.” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-malaysia-airlines-restructuring-exclu/exclusive-malaysia-to-stop-funding-state-airline-if-lessor-talks-fail-letter-idUSKBN26S2DX
  3. Originally planned for a hotel, the Sg Lembing 737 is now up for auction. Anybody interested? Only RM 140,000! What could have been - https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2019/05/22/upcoming-sg-lembing-aircraft-hotel-born-out-of-fathersons-crazy-idea/
  4. The EU is relaxing the slot usage rule, will the Brits do the same? https://www.businesstraveller.com/business-travel/2020/03/11/coronavirus-european-commission-to-relax-slot-usage-obligations/
  5. It's a matter of optics. Besides, who's to say that they didn't do that already?
  6. Or maybe the senior management's pay is not a significant portion of the cost that the low hanging fruits can be let go...
  7. Rumour has it that a proposal for a third terminal in KUL has been presented. And this has politics all over it - what with the proposer being a newly formed company and all. Plus no MAHB involvement apparently... https://www.malaysia-today.net/files/5_6217496555788697799.pdf
  8. I would settle for refurbishment of MTB/Satellite rather than Satellite B. It's showing its age.
  9. The messenger ruined an AirAsia takeover perhaps? 😆
  10. Nothing wrong in seeking an offset, says Dr M https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2020/02/06/nothing-wrong-is-seeking-an-offset-says-dr-m/ 🤣 This reminds me about how in the 1990s, Tajuddin Ramli used the threat of not buying any Airbus products ever again when he didn't get slots to increase flights into CDG to daily. https://www.flightglobal.com/mas-chief-barters-orders-for-slots/14543.article
  11. The surprising thing is that the A400M purchase by the RMAF is not included in this - does it mean the procurement was on the up and up?
  12. I honestly don't understand how it is confusing. The only omission is the word "Terminal".
  13. Maybe, but it's a bit dumb for AirAsia Executive 1 to write this: “Honestly [Airbus employee 1 [senior]] I'm fed up. You owe me 4 million already and I’m owed 16 million in total. This shd have been pauid [sic] ages ago when I bought thre [sic] first 60 aircraft. I want my money and I want compensation … pay up. I want my whole 16 million now..”
  14. I was under the impression that ATC staff get ID benefits similar to airline staff, no?
  15. It's actually no more confusing than Heathrow Terminal 4 actually. The reason why KLIA2 & KLIA Main Terminal is not connected airside is two-fold - KLIA2 was built years after the Main Terminal, and there are few if any interlining between the airlines using the main terminal which are predominantly Full Service Carriers, and KLIA2 which are predominantly Low Cost Carriers.
  16. While Boeing deals with the repercussions of the MAX, Airbus deals with the repercussions of a massive bribery scandal. Among the alleged recepients include TransAsia Airways, Sri Lankan Airlines, Garuda and AirAsia. https://www.ft.com/content/f7a01a60-442b-11ea-abea-0c7a29cd66fe In AirAsia's case, the alleged bribe came in the form of sponsorship of the Caterham F1 team. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wsj.com/amp/articles/airbus-bribery-charges-unveiled-after-4-billion-settlement-11580480153
  17. Right now the consensus is that tourism targets be damned. Safety comes first. Especially now that the WHO has declared it to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern - which means the government now has the right to stop inbound travelers from China.
  18. Probably because they need to redeploy planes to high demand routes for the Summer Olympics.
  19. Honestly AK's mentality isn't that great either. Sure they are profitable, but from what I'm told their internal processes are all over the place.
  20. Of course, because MH would cease to exist if D7 took over.
  21. JL's proposal involves revamping MH's revenue management, assist in turning around the airline, and working to make KUL a hub worthy of competition with BKK & SIN. But Khazanah feels it's not that great because "believed AAGB would fetch the fund RM1.4 bil a year in synergies but did not outline how they would accrue. There were no hard figures on valuations." https://focusmalaysia.my/mainstream/how-jal-proposes-to-turn-around-malaysia-airlines/?fbclid=IwAR3111GyY7BNhkDMe-7nnDPegCPqYt4l748qvvejSRDoxPLmhShKiUdGqy4
