KLIA improvements

Recommended Posts

Deunden Nikomborirak, research director at Thailand Development Research Institute, cited data that showed the average duty-free expenditure in Thailand at $47 per passenger, compared with $260 at South Korea's Incheon International Airport, which has 12 companies running duty-free operations.

Mahb should be abstained from operating duty free.

Believe MAHB should print its own money instead. Better not rely on retail revenue, PSC, landing fees etc.

Nice to see charging stations at Klia,was at gate H2 and some was available with seats next to them. Unfortunately for me I charged my phone at the ones where you have to stand by them and when boarding call was made to AKL,just boarded the plane leaving the phone charging behind.

KLIA glitch in August due to aged network system, Parliament told

If this is the conclusion, it would appear that the CIO is responsible!

Heads should roll...  CIO must ensure that major and strategic infrastructure is properly maintained and updated - this duty has been neglected!

No wonder MAHB just silent. They hope people will just forget it after some time.

Time to pay compensation to all the airlines and passengers affected.

Typical msia, ask for replacement, board/management keeps bitching no budget asking for more cost cutting. When things broke down lower end staffs get grilled. Cycle repeats.

Well it is a typical GLC environment - nobody is responsible for anything. Tidak apa attitude is the order of the day. So, if Board or Management turns down project proposal, they just accept that and close the book. Wait for the equipment to fail....

Yes, their customers now have very good reasons to claim compensation. This was not an accident or sabotage. It was a disaster waiting to happen - it was only a matter of when, not if.

I hope this was true but i am also experiencing similar issues working in private sector that involves with ict distribution. Departments not getting enough budget allocation. But revenue and profits keeps climbing. No bonuses for low end staff semua ikut KPI. Higher tier bosses get their ninja kings and higher dividend. Asked collegues that went for another company and no difference either.

Yes, most private companies are also budget constrained. Even MNCs, with their shared services or outsourced services, are the same. However, they have a more responsible work ethic and don't leave vital infrastructure like core switches in their cabinets for 20+ years without replacement!

As we are on the ICT spending, I would say 90% of companies do not take disaster recovery seriously. Their spending on security is also lagging - hence the many data breaches that we see being reported. I would say that for every data breach that we know about, there are at lease 20-40 more than are not reported. ICT managers have a lot to answer for. Notice that all these things coincide with widespread use of mobile equipment, especially smartphones...

This is what happens when the decision makers are more concerned about their own KPI (cutting cost/not approving budgets). A diseased corporate culture that is very common these days. More silver bullets now for TF against MAHB with this revelation.

Few if any vvip would notice ict or back office upgrade, hence budget is almost always not available. However, if the project could rise the management profile or please some vvip, for certain budget is available.

if you doing upgrade that people won't see it, you won't get the budget for it.

if you doing upgrade that people will see it, no matter it is relevant to them or not, you will have a higher chance of approved budget.

 

this is some coprorate mindset, sad but true.
