How much does a side salad cost? While we're at it, how much does a small tub of Häagen-Dazs cost? Heck, I think it's quite stingy of MH not to give out cheap things like soup and caviar. And don't tell me that little praline that you get in F and J at the end of a meal costs more than a few cents. These little things can't possibly cost much, right?

Even if it cost that much, you think they can recoup it with the yields they have on that flight?

 

Why do you think AirAsia sells Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak for RM 15, when you can easily buy a Nasi Lemak on ground for less than RM 5?

SQ SIN-TPE Y catering cost about sgd30 while J meals are at sgd86 not sure about long haul sectors though. Believe Mab could be around a similar catering pricing during LSG skychef tenure.

Depends on sector and what catering deal packages were assigned on SATS. For example SIN to CGk or SGN Y meals are only 13.50SGD and J 32.67SGD but the price varies depending on travel seasons and airline specification as well.

Nasi lemak costs more than RM 5 in a good restaurant, though!

Seriously, MAB must again look at their internal overheads and other costs. They also need to review their suppliers' contracts again.

The route network is also in need of review. They need to sweat their assets more and achieve better economies of scale. They have suffered severe flight and cabin crew shortages and they should really come up with a long term plan for these employees to stop the exodus. They also need to have a better recruitment system in place.

Its no easy task but all involved at MAB must focus. The PH government is reluctant to give them any more bailouts.

Selling price and cost is different.

For certain mh catering couldn't be superior than sq sin/cgk sector.

I am curious if that's the average cost for SQ J on SIN-CGK or just the cost of the standard menu (I can't imagine the BTC Lobster Thermidor option costing $32.67 SGD)

 

Seriously, MAB must again look at their internal overheads and other costs. They also need to review their suppliers' contracts again.

I'd like to know, if you are the CEO of MAB and you are reviewing the contracts and you noticed that the contract is BS, all signed by your predecessors with hefty penalty for breaking the contract. The supplier/caterer knows that they are ripping MAB off, MAB knows that they are being ripped off, the public knows that MAB is being ripped off, what can/are you going to do with the long-term contract?

Really? Is it that easy to make money? I should apply for the CEO position tomorrow. I'll make it the greatest airline turnaround story of the century.

I got some nice Toblerone bars on BA. Made in Switzerland I think. Very yummy.

Malaysia is willing to consider selling the national carrier Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB) if there is a good offer for the company, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today.
 
However, he said the government must first ensure the potential buyer could manage the airline well.
 
“We have changed their (Malaysian Airlines) leadership many times, each time we were hoping they would do something to turn around the company but they failed… (so) now we want to sell it, but if we sell (it) to people who will fail again, it is not worthwhile.
 
“We (the government) need to be very careful about choosing the buyer,” he said during a session entitled ‘The Future of Malaysia and ASEAN’ with chief international correspondent, Southeast Asia, Bloomberg Television Haslinda Amin, in conjunction with ASEAN Business Summit in Bangkok, Thailand today.
 
Dr Mahathir said there were still various options that the government could consider in terms of the airlines future, including undertaking another restructuring exercise or cash injection by the government. 
 
“Maybe changing the head once again and maybe restructuring or pumping a little of (the) government money and things like that, there are so many options at large,” he said.
 
When asked by the moderator on what would be the best option for Malaysian Airlines right now, Dr Mahathir said: “If there is a good offer, then we will consider (selling the airlines).”

The Malaysian Airline System Berhad (Administration) Act was passed to clean up MAS before MAB was established. I believe all the unfair contracts have not been transferred over to MAB. Some of the long term aircraft leases also did not make it into MAB.

 

Supplier contracts should be under constant review in order to keep costs as low as possible, If MAS does not know how, perhaps they should poach some supply chain staff from Airasia! ;)
