Are we really going to pretend that average domestic fares haven't dropped dramatically since the "old glory days" of MH's monopoly?

Yeah top management must be getting RM120K annually at least, so it will be a big blow to their lifestyles and maybe not low enough for them to feel the pinch 🤣🤣🤣🤣

looks like their senior management is well paid, imagine a 10% pay cut will able to cope with the covid19 impact. as compared to Malindo's up to 50% cut.

Don't worry - it will come soon. They just want to show that Management is taking the hit first.

Well, Director's fees are also sky high - even non-executive directors can get RM 250K in fees and allowances, just for attending the 7 to 10 board meetings each year.

if the company having good earnings and healthy balance sheet, it wasn't an issue paying high amount of allowance to senior management, when it is not, the senior management must lead by example before chopping the lower tier for cost cutting measures. too bad, MAS was chopping the lower tier as oppose to trimming the higher end ones.

Low hanging fruit is easiest to pick. EY pax is served RM4.50 meal box is by no accident.

Or maybe the senior management's pay is not a significant portion of the cost that the low hanging fruits can be let go...

That would depend on the size of the business - companies like Microsoft, Apple, GE, etc. have huge businesses - so top management pay is not a big proportion of their overheads. But if your company is small and still has a BoD that pays similarly, it may account for a bigger part of the company's expenses.

then they should focus on the high expenditure item other than cutting 10% on senior management salary and tyield no result.

It's a matter of optics.

Besides, who's to say that they didn't do that already?

Covid-19 seems to be getting worse now. Gov restriction on whole South Korea now and next week Japan if situation doesn't improve. So much for D7 and MH expanding all capacity to oriental routes.

Luckily MH pulled out from many secondary chinese cities late last year, otherwise the impact could be worse. Nevertheless, was told that the financial impact is 3 times worse than MH370+MH17

In trying times like this, its a good time to let go of the more elderly staff. I.e approaching retirement, above 60 and contract staff. Give way to the younger ones to live through their commitments. Golden age staff are usually at the peak of their pay brackets. 

Was told Malindo and AirAsia group are resorting to this. Something MH Group can consider.

Well, it is spreading - already US-Europe is banned. So American and European airlines will be affected. The whole industry is now adversely affected under this Covid-19 pandemic.

MH is now "lucky" that it only has one route to Europe!

D7 may wish to consider suspending operations altogether for 14 to 21 days. Upon resumption, there would be some residual demand to fill up their planes :excl:

That is the issue with airlines expanding capacity and frequency like mad. All it takes is one small bug to reset the entire industry. The same thing will repeat in another 10-15years if following the influenza cycle. Free market open sky they call it 🤣 dumb consumers are the one getting s#1t on in the end.
