    Aeroplane of course, otherwise won't bother with this forum.
  1. Guess it all about being competitive.. Raising KLIA2 psc will not just weaken Air Asia's competitiveness but also our competitiveness as a whole. For international travellers, Malaysia is not that attractive a destination apart from being cheap.. So if we raise airport fee simply because we are still relatively cheap, we are chipping away at our competitiveness to our regional competitors..
  2. If Tony Fernandes were to get his Labu, we would not have to pay airport tax now.. Just to have walk through shopping complex to reach your plane..
  3. Though I feel the fare difference between KLIA and KLIA2 is too wide, there should still be a difference between the two. Otherwise, it really defeat the purpose of KLIA2. Don't know what the government is thinking..
  4. Haven't been to Penang for quite awhile but the last time I was there it was about to be upgraded. If the airport can still cater to needs for years to come, good to just keep it and create better connection to Kedah and other northern states (e.g rail). Does not make sense to have so many international airports so close to each other..
  5. The Sulu Sultanate does not exist anymore. No countries in the world recognize them. Too many claimants. Malaysia is still kind enough to continue give their descendants "cessation money". If it were rent, the leasor would still have some power like ending the contract, increase the rent or have some degree of autonomy over the state, but no, Malaysia has full autonomy of Sabah. So this Sabah Sulu issue is entirely different from South China Sea issue altogether. This I agree. Life is not black and white.. Somethings they do are good.. Some bad.. China has lots of money and we should welcome appropriate investments.. Though personally, I would like to see Japanese HSR plying KL Singapore.
  6. In this instance, I am happy Uncle Sam and gang are playing international police. Otherwise, South East Asia countries will be bullied by China even more. The South China Sea was rather peaceful until this large scaled land reclamation by China and warnings to others who come close.. Their coast guards even sailed all the way to the proximity of Sarawak. Melampau! Like "bad behaviours" of Chinese tourists, this is bad behaviour of Chinese government. China uses this to stir up nationalistic sentiments. Good for them. Bad for us. BTW, Malaysia is not paying any rent to Filipino gov but just "cessation" money to some who claimed to be descendants of Sulu Sultanate. I think we should stop paying altogether but it's another topic.
  7. Sabah as part of Malaysia is recognised widely by international communities. South China Sea as part of China? Well... No one recognised this. The two issues are worlds apart. China only starts reclaming lands and making noises in last couple of years now that they are stronger. Even the map on their passport was only changed to include the South China Sea few years ago. They are just being a bully cause South East Asia countries cannot fight back and rely on China for trade.
  8. China is just being too excessive with their claims and large scaled land reclamation. Just look at how much they are claiming.. China at the top with the vast sea protruding all the way down to the seashore of South East Asia countries including ours.. Much of the area they claim is no where near mainland China. Countries' territory change with time. Modern history does not recognize China's claim. No other country does. If they want to stake their claim, they will have to fight for it and expect resistance. I understand Philippine already brought this matter to international court. They can fight for it in the court. I am happy with Freedom of Navigation operations. Imagine needing to ask China for permission just to pass by South China Sea.
  9. For a little country, we sure have plenty of airlines.. Don't you think the market is a bit saturated?
  10. In langkawi now, saw a large happy group of Chinese tourists tourists. Unfortunately a trail of rubbish also followed them.
  11. Agree. a lot of wasted opportunities. Firefly jet could have been successful by now
  12. ok. a bit harsh. It was supposed to be an investment arm like Tamasek in Singapore.. but I haven't much result. Nothing impressive come out from them. furthermore, they seem to dictate how MAS should be run, but when everything goes pear shaped, they are not accountable..
  13. Sad to see still much gov interference in the running of MAS, from routes to cut to number of staff to be axed. At the end of the day, the gov, in particular Khazanah holds no responsibility when MAS going downhill. I think if MAS staff has to be axed, then those working in Khazanah should be axed also. Afterall, Khazanah brings no good to the country.
  14. Guess they have to do what they have to do. The seats arrangement in B738 is just too tight, yet they use it for regional flights. It was a mistake they made from the very start.
  15. That is one very dirty plane.. Is it really that expensive to have it cleaned? It reflects poorly on the airline. Hope the new ceo will have better senses.
