If you got sufficient money in your hands, you can build and run a reasonably successful business. That was what James Hogan did. But put him in a problem ridden, cash strapped GLC, how will he perform? I am not sure if he can be any better ... 


They should have instead  hired ex-Etihad CEO James Hogan instead of Izham Ismail to replace Peter Bellew.

For MAB its good to put Capt Izham Ismail as the new CEO as being a local and have been with the airline for many years, he would at least be staying on as CEO unlike the 2 westerners that MAB had brought in. This is also bec CPT Izham would have known about the ways the airline have been working and the politickings attached to it and know that the "boundaries" of to what extend he can do and push.  MAB will likely be "turnaround" by next year and make very modest profit but nt sure if it can sustain the profitability over the next 5 years.  One way around this path to profitability is the way MAB and Khanazah will now working on to set up a new company to take over the 6 A380s which is a heavy bleed on MAB.  With the new company to take the 6 A380s off MAB books, it will reduce a great part of its costs and this alone will likely be able to turn MAB into some modest profitability by next year.

Of course, it remains to be seen if CPT Izham is able to exercise control over the types of aircraft that MAB will buy and keep its new order of widebodies to one single manufacturer to yield the economies of scale and reduce the number of parts and spares and in  training of its crew.

Whether Capt izham will yield to political pressure, intention or directive is remain to be seen.

Mab current head count is probably the lowest possible and is more likely to rise.

With many years experience in the company, some old practices are likely to carry over.
