  1. KUALA LUMPUR 15 Nov. - Pesawat ketiga Airbus A380 Malaysia Airlines (MAS) selamat tiba di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA), Sepang pada pukul 9.35 pagi hari ini.

    told by a friend on this.. :crazy:

  2. A British Airways jet was forced to make an emergency landing after both pilots almost 'passed out' at the controls.


    The Captain and first officer both reported feeling light headed as the aircraft, which had taken off from Heathrow, was climbing at 20,000 feet.


    As the drama unfolded passengers heard a 'panicked' captain call for a senior member of the cabin crew to come to their aid.

    They were then supplied with oxygen masks as they continued the stricken flight and requested an emergency return to Heathrow.


    Fortunately the plane, an Airbus A321, landed safely but when paramedics arrived the pilots both said they had felt as though they were about to pass out.


    The incident, which is now being investigated by the Air Accident Investigation Branch, was also reported by a passenger on the flight on a professional pilots website.



    He described how the captain of the flight, from London to Glasgow last month, sounded panicked and how cabin attendants looked worried at the turn of events.


    'I was on the London to Glasgow flight yesterday, departed Heathrow at 4 pm-ish got airborne, at approx 20 mins into flight a very abrupt and panicked message came over the PA from the pilot,' he said.


    He goes on to say that there were a number of 'worried faces' among the flight attendants who he saw with a oxygen cylinders and said the plane was soon heading back to Heathrow 'at great speed'.

    The passengers were greeted at Terminal 5 shortly after take-off by paramedics and fire crews

    The plane, an Airbus A321, was heading to Glasgow when both pilots reported feeling unwell


    Cabin crew then announced they were experiecing technical difficulties but the passenger added they were greeted by fire crews, paramedics and engineers on landing.


    'Still being fed the tech fault line but the first on board were paramedics??


    'It later transpires that both pilots became lightheaded/dizzy/unwell at the same time, in my book that's serious,' he said.


    Air accident investigators will now be examining what caused the pilots to become ill at the same time during the flight.


    A spokesman for BA confirmed that both pilots had become 'unwell' and followed procedures by donning oxygen masks and returning to Heathrow.


    'The pilots reported feeling light headed so, as a precaution and following normal procedure, put on their oxygen masks,' she said.


    'Our pilots are highly trained to deal with such circumstances. The aircraft landed safely and customers continued their journey after a short delay.'

  3. may be more fee scrap will incur in future as now he understand what his customer is facing :p


    Arriving in a hotel in KL Sentral he went to the bar and asked for a pint of

    draught Guinness. The barman nodded and said, "That will be one Ringgit

    please, Uncle Tony."


    Somewhat taken aback, Uncle Tony replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over

    his money.


    "Well, we try to stay ahead of the competition", said the

    barman. "And we are serving free pints every Wednesday evening

    from 6 until 8. We have the cheapest draught in Asia "


    "That is remarkable value" Uncle Tony comments


    "I see you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll probably need one of ours.

    That will be 3 Ringgit please."


    Uncle Tony scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat.

    "Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra 2 Ringgit

    You could have pre-book the seat, and it would have only cost you a Ringgit"


    "I think you may to be too big for the seat sir, can I ask you to sit in this

    frame please"

    Uncle Tony attempts to sit down but the frame is too small and when he can't squeeze in

    he complains "Nobody would fit in that little frame".


    "I'm afraid if you can't fit in the frame you'll have to pay an extra surcharge of RM 4

    for your seat sir"


    Tony swore to himself, but paid up. "I see that you have brought your

    laptop with you" added the barman. "And since that wasn't pre-booked

    either, that will be another 3 Ringgit"


    Uncle Tony was so annoyed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on

    the counter, and yelled, "This is ridiculous, I want to speak to the



    "Ah, I see you want to use the counter," says the barman, "that will

    be 2 Ringgit please." Uncle's face was red with rage.


    "Do you know who I am?"


    "Of course I do Mr Fernandes


    "I've had enough, What sort of Hotel is this? I come in for a quiet drink

    and you treat me like this. I insist on speaking to a manager!"


    "Here is his E mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9 and 9.10

    every morning, Monday to Tuesday at this free phone number. Calls are free,

    until they are answered, then there is a talking charge of only 10 sen per second provided you use Tune Talk using other mobile carriers would incur our normal charges of 30 Sen per second


    "I will never use this bar again"


    "OK Uncle , but remember, we are the only bar in Asia selling pints for one Ringgit...so that Now everyone can drink "

  4. Breach of CCF??


    KEADILAN refers to a Reuter’s report on Dato’ Seri Tony Fernandes’s move to set up a full premium airline to compete on regional routes. The report quotes that the new airline called Caterham Jet shall operate from Subang to service the Bangkok, Jakarta and Singapore routes (among others).


    With this latest development, the relevance and usefulness of the much criticised Comprehensive Collaboration Framework (CCF) signed between MAS and AirAsia becomes more questionable. The cornerstone of the CCF is MAS and AirAsia’s commitment to stay in their niche markets (full premium service and no-frills respectively) in order not to commercially weaken each other by avoiding a direct competition.


    I therefore question whether the latest move by Dato’ Seri Tony Fernandes to set up a full premium airline is in breach of the CCF he signed on behalf of Air Asia?


    The following questions with regards to the CCF should be clarified immediately by Dato’ Seri Tony Fernandes and Khazanah Berhad:


    Does the CCF prohibit Air Asia or its owner (Dato’ Seri Tony Fernandes) to operate a full premium airline that serves the same route as MAS; in order to leverage Air Asia and MAS’ strength in the no-frills and full premium markets respectively;

    Does Caterham Jet serve the same routes as MAS and therefore becomes the latter’s direct competitor, thus obliterating the usefulness of the CCF?


    The CCF has caused much discomfort to the staff of MAS who feel they were left out in the decision making process in spite of the staunch support given to the various Business Transformation Programs previously rolled out by the management.


    The setting up of Caterham Jet confirms our argument that the CCF does not guarantee a mutually beneficial commercial arrangement between MAS and Air Asia’s owners that eventually will short-change the public due to the cartel created between the two.
