“MAS can’t continue to operate like this running on losses and inefficiency by the top management, it’s time for a drastic change,” Mohd Jabarullah said, adding they represented the frustration of 20,000 workers of MAS.

When the MAS-AirAsia share swap was reversed by YAB PM Datuk Najib, the CEO of AirAsia Tan Sri Tony Fernandes vowed that AirAsia will not sent its aircraft to MAS Aerospace and Engineering for maintenance and service. But it was just a spin at that time. Tan Sri Tony Fernandes had to eat his words when AirAsia sent its aircraft to MAS Aerospace and Engineering for maintenance, HERE.
Many rumours have been flying around MAS that En Azhari Dahlan has given special discounted rate for service and maintenance of AirAsia’s aircraft. Until this date, En Azhari Dahlan is keeping the special discounted rate closed to his chest. It is hoped that the Board of Directors of MAS, will call for the contract to examine contract that Azhari Dahlan has entered into with AirAsia and compare the discounted rate and special conditions accorded to AirAsia with the present market rates and conditions for service and maintenance aircraft.
