  5. ‘I am here to make things right’ CAPTAIN Izham Ismail took over as group CEO of Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAS) in 2017, making him the fourth CEO of the country’s flag carrier since the rebooting of Malaysian Airline System Bhd in 2014. The loss-making airline had been struggling to turn around amid a tough operating environment due to overcapacity and thin margins. The Covid-19 pandemic has made matters worse, and it is now proposing to restructure its debt in a bid for survival. Here is an excerpt from The Edge’s exclusive interview with him: https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/cover-story-i-am-here-make-things-right

  9. Airasia X management should only worry about the creditors' scheme of arrangement - if the big creditors agree, it can try to rescue the airline. If they don't agree, they should just liquidate the airline and not waste any more money. Don't repeat the mistakes of Malaysia Airlines. This is more so as the aviation industry is suffering its worst ever crisis and the next 5 years will be extremely tough for the industry.

  20. AAX: The last stand A MASTER reset at the loss-making and debt-laden AirAsia X Bhd (AAX) has been a long time coming. It could have dragged its financial woes on and on but the Covid-19 pandemic, which has thrashed the aviation industry globally, may very well have forced the hand of low-cost, long-haul associate of AirAsia Group Bhd. It could still be a blessing in disguise, depending on how the restructuring plan for its RM63.5bil debt turns out. The pandemic, which has grounded the airline’s entire fleet since the second quarter of 2020, has delivered the hard reset button to AAX to do some soul searching and to right its wrongs before it prepares for take-off again. From the very beginning, sceptics had doubted whether a business model of a long-haul budget airline would work, seeing how the late Sir Freddie Laker’s Skytrain went bust in the 80s. Thirteen years down the road, it would seem like AAX might go down the same road and prove its critics right. https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2020/10/17/star-exclusive---aax-the-last-stand
  21. Agree that D7 will have much better survival prospects if MAB is liquidated. In fact, they have a nice feedstock for P2F conversion, if they decide to take logistics more seriously. However, the stumbling block is funding because D7 has been bleeding cash for some years already and they don't have that many sources of financing these days.
  22. We have tried everything with MH for so many decades already. Its time for trying something else. Covid-19 has reset the aviation industry and leveled the playing field a bit as even big airlines need to downsize. Got nothing to lose and maybe something to gain. We won't know if we don't try.
