Tuan Azahari Dahlan, the ex-AirAsia Regional Head of Engineering, and appointed the CEO of MAS Aerospace Engineering (MAE) after the infamous aborted MAS-AirAsia share swap, is said to be the most qualified person in term of “seniority and qualifications” in MAE to hold the post of CEO. Unfortunately, up to this date this Tuan Azahari Dahlan is still keeping very quiet about the possibility of MAE entering into another joint venture with SR Technics or other entities. Yours truly has posted about the possible joint venture with S R Technics, in HERE. (more…)

Tuan Azahari Dahlan, who was formerly the Regional Head of AirAsia Engineering and parachuted into MAS Engineering during the infamous MAS – AirAsia share swap, is the most qualified person in MAS Engineering to hold the post of the CEO. Rumour has it that he manages MAS Engineering like a well maintained engine and has also gained lots of respect within MAS Engineering for his great leadership. The pertinent question is, had MAS Engineering, under this highly qualified Tuan Azahari Dahlan, learn the lesson from all its failed joint ventures over the last two decades? (more…)

17-12-2012 @6:30 pm: Yours truly has been informed by YB Datuk Ismail Sabri, Minister of Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism, that his Ministry has taken the necessary actions to stop AirAsia from selling of tickets beyond 31 March 2013 as AirAsia’s AOC is only valid until 31 March 2013.
It has been widely reported in the newspapers recently that the Air Operation Certificate (AOC) of AirAsia has been granted by Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) for a six month period until March 31, 2013 due to failure to meet the regulatory requirement as reported in HERE. Normally, OAC is granted to an airline for a two years period. Up to this date, the said press report by the Sun Daily and New Strait Times have not been refuted by the management of AirAsia or denied by Minister of Transport or DCA. (more…)

Updates on 23-10-2012: YB Datuk Awang Adek, the Deputy Minister of Finance, was replying to the points raised by MPs during the Committee Stage Budget 2013 debate this evening. He was unable to furnish Parliament with all the replies as he was not well and he has promised to provide written replies to all the points raised during the said debate. However, he managed to speak for about an hour. He did inform Parliament that a Special Task Force headed by the Attorney-General has collected all the information regarding the foreign fund from Mr George Sorros that was subsequently given to Suaram and Malaysiakini and asked MPs to wait for the actions to be taken on this matter. Yours truly will publish once yours truly has been given the reply on the points raised on the consultancy fees paid to Landor Associates and Ogilvy & Mather.
Yours truly has been questioning about the consultancy fees paid by MAS to Landor Associates and Ogilvy & Mather but the top management of MAS is not only keeping mum but hiding behind non-disclosure or secrecy clause in the agreement. For the background information please read in HERE. The re-branding of MAS was done in a haste without the approval of the Board when En Al-Ishal Ishak was the SVP Marketing and Promotion. Yours truly has been informed by reliable sources that En Al-Ishal Ishak who left MAS last month has recently joined AirAsia. (more…)

Yours truly is glad that En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya (AJ as he is popularly known in and out of MAS) has heard the voices of MAS staffs loud and clear in his latest circular/e-mail below. It would appear from the said circular/e-mail that AJ wanted to instill a new spirit in MAS which should be supported by all. (more…)
Both En Abdul Aziz Abu Bakar, Executive Vice President, Aircraft Finance & Management and En Al-Ishsal Ishak, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Products have resigned from MAS.

Can someone help to list down En Azhari Mohd Dahlan’s great achievements in MAS from February 2012 until now?
