Perhaps AJ does not under the history of MH. It is Malaysia Hospitality and not Musnah Harapan.

“Stay focused” says AJ.  “Stay Focus” to look after the interest of other airline?  It seems that now MH stands for “Maruah Hilang” & “Musnah Harapan”!

Yours truly went to the same mamak stall for a teh tarik this noon and someone has just passed the e-mail entitled “Stay Focused In Our Journey” from MAS Group CEO, which is still warm from the oven.   (more…)

Tan Sri Aziz Abdul Rahman, MAS MD from 1972 to 1991

Yg Bhg Tan Sri Aziz Abdul Rahman, MAS MD from 1972 to 1991. He left MAS with a cash reserve of RM5 billion

Dr Mahadon Abdullah, director of MAS

Dr Mahamadon Abdullah, who was a loyal  employee of MAS for many years and now a  director of MAS

Updates on 23-8-2013 @1:00 am:  

Rumour has it that Dr Hugh Dunleavy’s salary is in the region of RM100,000-00 a month plus other perks.  His two years contract will expire in mid January 2014.  Rumour also has it  that Dr Hugh is lobbying to have his contract extended.  Under the circumstances, Dr Hugh can not be blamed for lobbying for extension. This also apply to a few others!  

From now on, Dr Hugh had to be extremely nice to Puan Zahrah Zaid, formerly from Danone Biscuit Company.  She joined MAS during the MAS-AirAsia share swap.  About Puan Zahrah Zaid please read “Now Everyone Can Join MAS”.

 Dr Hugh is known for his VAST experience in Westjet. He joined Westjet in January 2005 and in 2011 he was made redundant. God knows why a man of such caliber was made redundant!

 As at December 2007 Westjet was flying to only 26 destination within Canada and 12 in America. It has 70 aircrafts including its 13 owned 600s series, 16 leased and 35 owned 700s series.  Revenue between $1 billion to $5 billion and employees between 5,000 to 10,000. Westjet is no bigger than AirAsia. No wonder Dr Hugh needed Seabury Consulting to think for him and his boys.

Say No

There was a campaign by AirAsia against the increase of airport tax, which is a revenue to the Government to maintain and upgrade our airports.

When yours truly brought up the issue in Parliament a few years ago, AA finally settled it with a discount of RM25 million as “incentive” by the then Minister of Transport, in HERE. (more…)
