AirAsia's advertisement for tickets sale well after 31 March 2013 (see parts marked with arrow)

AirAsia’s ads for tickets sale well after 31 March 2013 (see parts marked with arrow). This advertisement appeared in the Star on 28-11-2012. Is this advertisement misleading?

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 @ 7 pm on 22-11-2012:  (Dari Hansard yang belum disemak)

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: [Ketawa] Untuk menjawab soalan yang dibangkitkan oleh Yang Berhormat Wangsa Maju berkenaan dengan mengapa seorang penjawat DCA menerbangkan A380 yang dimiliki oleh MAS terus ke Kuala Lumpur. Untuk menjawab Yang Berhormat, ini sebenarnya dibenarkan kerana Kapten Sumali ini, beliau adalah seorang yang mahir dengan semua jenis pesawat yang beliau akan menentukan kelayakan juruterbang dan sebagainya. So ini adalah within the permission untuk beliau membawa balik dan menerbangkan A380 untuk meletakkan tafsiran kepada lesen pilot beliau.

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Yang Berhormat Menteri, minta penjelasan sedikit. Kapten Sumali ini adalah seorang pegawai DCA. Tugasnya adalah untuk safety audit kapal terbang dan keselamatan yang lain. So itu bukan tugas dia. Persoalannya adalah itu bukan tugas dia. Dia bukan pilot. Saya tidak menyoal kelayakan dia.

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: Beliau juga seorang pilot dan juga perlu mematuhi untuk upgrade dan update tentang pesawat-pesawat yang baru dalam kerja beliau. Jadi beliau boleh lebih faham tentang perkara-perkara yang tertentu dan untuk mengiktiraf pilots yang lain.

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Ya. Beliau bukan pilot MAS. Jadinya beliau tidak ada hak.

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: Ya, beliau memang bukan pilot MAS.

DR 21.11.2012 44

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Beliau bekerja untuk DCA.
Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: Beliau tidak dibayar oleh MAS juga.
Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Ya, bukan dibayar. Masalahnya conflict of interest. Beliau untuk menjaga keselamatan kapal terbang, flight dan sebagainya. Beliau dari situ boleh ambil masa, time off kerja beliau dan pergi bawa kapal terbang. Ini sudah salah daripada segi abuse of posisi.

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: No, no. Tidak, tidak. Jadi, untuk itu…
Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Itulah masalah Yang Berhormat Menteri.  (more…)

One not telling the truth and the other condoning it!

Updated: 25-10-2011 Please read the article quoted from Business Time report dated 21-7-2006AirAsia not the ‘golden child’. You will see from this report how AirAsia got all the helps (i.e. AirAsia was given 91 trunk routes and etc) from the Badawi’s Administration under the so-called “domestic air rationalisation exercise” and AirAsia grew at the expense of MAS.

Below was what Tan Sri Tony Fernandes had been reported to have said as reported by the Star on 26-4-2007 when the then Minister of Transport, Datuk Chan Kong Choy, announced that FAX/AirAsia X Sdn Bhd had to return the Rural Air Services (RAS) in Sabah and Sarawak to MAS.

“Fernandes said FAX would be launching AirAsia Long Haul operations soon, and that it would be too distracting to operate turbo-propeller aircraft as well.” (more…)
