  1. At every AGM, they always ask shareholders to pass a resolution pertaining to "related party transactions" as AAG and AAX have so many intercompany transactions with other Tune Group and companies that TF and KM are involved in. I think we will need to go back to those resolutions to check if the Caterham sponsorship deal is included in them. Interesting...

  3. Why not follow the normal GLC practice (e.g. original KLIA, PLUS, etc.) - get the government to bear the construction costs but MAHB pockets all the revenue?
  4. Didn't MAHB say they were going to extend MTB a little as well? Yes, I think having Satellite B now would be the right thing to do. I am not sure if KLIA can continue to grow that much in the next 10 years, given that MAG is rudderless with regards to long term plans and AAG is finding it difficult to increase capacity without sacrificing long term yields.
  5. They are very efficient - have used it a few times in recent years and waiting for immigration clearance and luggage delivery is way superior to KLIA. I think it is able to handle more pax nowadays - they have a new and very much larger international terminal now.
  6. Well, watch out for the competition coming out of Vietnam. They are going places where Malaysia went a few decades ago.

  8. Malaysia is just like China - social media makes it easier for them to track down and arrest the "trouble makers".
  9. Sri Lanka arrests airline chief over Airbus kickback claims https://www.malaymail.com/news/world/2020/02/06/sri-lanka-arrests-airline-chief-over-airbus-kickback-claims/1835209
  10. Updated report here: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-51384667 Yes, it seems like Pegasus pilots are rather lacking in judgement when it comes to landing in unfavourable weather conditions. I wonder why they did not divert to another airport or considered a go around when the plane was not stable.
  11. Not quite - AAGB and AAXB are both public companies - so confidence in Bursa Malaysia is at stake. Investor protection is important if our capital markets are to be trusted. I think that this is a borderline corruption case because money went into a sponsorship which is normal in Formula 1. The cars did carry Airbus logos (I remember Airbus also sponsored Americas Cup yachts) even though Airbus does not seem to be directly involved in motor racing products. So the payment was not to some secret slush fund. It should be interesting to see what the MACC/SEC/Mavcom can turn up.
  12. Accident: Pegasus B738 at Istanbul on Feb 5th 2020, overran runway, impacted wall, broke up http://avherald.com/h?article=4d2e6a8d&opt=0
  13. A passenger plane has skidded off the runway at an airport in Turkey and broken into three pieces, injuring 21 people, officials say. The jet was reportedly carrying 171 passengers and six crew when it crashed at Istanbul's Sabiha Gokcen airport. No-one died in the incident, Transport Minister Mehmet Cahit Turhan said. Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya said 21 people had been rushed to hospital and evacuation efforts are continuing. The Pegasus Airlines plane was landing in heavy rain after flying in from the western province of Izmir, Turkish media reported. More: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-51384667
  14. This investigation on Airbus was for the period between 2011 and 2015. I believe that the RMAF order took place around 2005.
  15. Oops my bad! It is indeed operated by D7! So that invalidates my argument! In any case, the rescue flight arrived safely - so the A320neo is able to perform the mission, and at a lower cost.
