Updated @ 7:50 pm on 28-12-2011: Please read these two interesting articles, “Azman Mokhtar and Rashdan must go – Part 4″ & “Another Khazanah-Amokh failure [updated]. Another interesting write up, “Heads to roll in Khazanah”.

On 28 July 2010 under the leadership of YM Tengku Azmil, MAS signed an agreement with Lembaga Tabung Haji to provide Haji Charter services to Jeddah and Madina for the 2010 / 2011 Haji Season. Read HERE. Yours truly believes that MAS has been providing the Haji Charter services since 1960 as part of its national service which should be applauded. Your truly has just been informed from a reliable source that its New Business Plan is not going to renew the said Haji Charter services from 2012 onwards due to the same old story that it was “UNPROFITABLE”. It was for the same reason that MAS had terminated the Firefly’s routes for its jet services from JB to East Malaysia and MAS routes from Kota Kinabalu to cities in Japan, Korea, Australia and etc. (more…)

AJ: What about the "Panamera Dead Woods" in MAS, which is one of LEAKAGES? But this a picture of a beautiful car by Posche and definitely not a dead wood.

Updated 1:30 am 7-12-2011: There two interesting articles that are worth reading about the incompetencies of Tan Sri Azman  Mokhtar and his secret MAS – share swap, CCF, and Tan Sri Tony Fernandes (Tony) wanted a Service Level Agreement with MAHB. Hopefully Tan Sri Asman Mokhtar will not suddenly sign another secret share swap agreement involving MAHB, where Tony will be appointed the new MD for MAHB.   In HERE & HERE.

Updated @ 4:45 pm 6-12-2011:  Yours truly has been informed by reliable sources that the notification for this town hall meeting states that if the staff want to attend the meeting, he or she will have to obtain prior approval from their head of department. Just wondering how many staff will be given the approval to attend. Although there were talks of the meeting will be stage managed, yours truly believes that unlike others AJ will put into practice transparency in MAS. Hopefully AJ will do a tell all with regards to the “secret” CCF, which is the main concern of the staff and the nation.

En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya (AJ), MD of MAS and En Mohammed Rashdan Yusof aka Danny (Rashdan), Deputy MD of MAS, who was Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar’s former business partner in BinaFikir Sdn Bhd, have called for a town hall meeting tomorrow (7-12-2011) at 9:30 am at the MAS Academy to unveil their so-called “Comprehensive Collaborative Framework” (CCF) and New Business Plans to save MAS. Yours truly hopes that MAS management will allow time off for its members of staff to attend this town hall meeting to learn about the grand plans that will affect their future and livelihoods.

MAS cabin crews and others have worked so hard for MAS & yet not appreciated. But the Panamera Dead Woods are awarded with high salaries and BIG perks!

Updated @ 10:30 pm 5-12-2011: These articles are  for your reading pleasure. HERE & HERE.

Updated @ 10:45 am 5-12-2011MAS used to have daily return direct flights between Sandakan and Kuala Lumpur, then Firefly came in to serve this route, so MAS stopped doing it. This was decided by the new management of MAS under En Mohammed Rashdan Yusof, the ex-business partner of Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar when they were in BinaFikir Sdn Bhd.

The Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department Datuk Edward Khoo has expressed disappointment at the decision to reduce the number of airlines operating direct flights between Sandakan to Kuala Lumpur.

“Lately Firefly has also withdrawn its service and we are now left with only AirAsia serving this route.I still remember that when MAS and AirAsia had a share swap, it was clearly announced that this swap would not create a monopoly for air travel.This particular route between Sandakan and Kuala Lumpur has now become a monopoly (by AirAsia),” said Datuk Edward Khoo. Full report in HERE.

Now that the meeting between Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar and Tan Sri Bashir of MAHB was just a rumour where Tan Sri Bashir was supposed to be given the boot. Lets hope that the sacking of Tan Sri Bashir was a mere figment of imagination. Lets return to the problems in MAS where Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar’s ex-business partner in BinaFikir Sdn Bhd, En Mohammed Rashdan Yusfof aka Danny, was in the centre of many controversial decisions in MAS.

The two good friends of many years.

The scheduled meeting at 6 pm of today where Tan Sri Mokhtar has summoned Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad to attend did not materialise. It was just a “rumour” after all!  Was it just a rumour that was  to “discredit” Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, who is one of those few honorable men left in the corporate world and, of course, his ex-business partner in BinaFikir Sdn Bhd, En Muhammed Rashdan Yusof aka Danny (Rashdan), is included?
