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…)

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…)

Please look at the list of unreasonable charges imposed by AirAsia, hailed by Tan Sri Tony Fernandes as “No Frills Airline”. What a good lobbyist!

The MAS/AirAsia share swap deal:  “AirAsia’s Fernandes to gain 20% stake in national carrier”.  The front page sources story in the Star today.  “Fernandes declined to comment when asked about the deal.”, so says The Star.  This was not what we know of Tony Fernandes, who loves publicity and is well known to jump on anything to say his bit to enhance his image. Read HERE.

This “share swap deal” is a joke of the century.  It would appear that now AirAsia, which has been known to have the special “abilities” to owe airport taxes to the tune of more than RM125 million since it inception until 2010, has been made out to look like a white knight for MAS.

THE PERTINENT QUESTION NOW IS: IS AIRASIA BAILING OUT MAS OR MAS HAS BEEN USED AS A VEHICLE TO BAIL OUT AIRASIA?  Your views please, YB Senator Datuk Idris Jala, the former CEO of MAS, on this issue. 

Please read further.  I leave it to you to judge. (more…)

Salah satu Laporan Ketua Audit Negara 2009 terhadap Kementerian Pengangkutan:

“Bagi tempoh tahun 2002 hingga 2009, Jabatan Laut Semennanjung Malaysia (JabatanLaut) telah diluluskan peruntukan berjumlah RM309.41 juta untuk projek pembinaan marina dan pembangunan infrastruktur yang dijangka dapat menggalak serta meningkatkan pertumbuhan aktiviti rekrasi di kalangan pemilik kapal rekrasi tempatan dan luar negara. Sehingga tahun 2009, Jaabatan Laut telah mebina 9 marina melibatkan kos berjumlahRM253.06 juta (81.8%).

Pengauditan yang dijalankan antara Jun hingga Oktober 2009 mendapati beberapa kelemahan dalam aspek perancangan, pelaksanaan dan pemantauan terhadap projek pembinaan dan pengurusan marina awam. Antara kelemahan yang diperhatikan adalah marina yang telah lama disiapkan masih tidak beropersasi dan dimanfaatkan mengikut objektif pembinaannya; kemudahan yang dibangunkan memlebihi keperluan serta bangunan dan peralatan tidak disenggarakan dengan baik.

Adalah didapati Jabatan tidak memulakan operasi marina sebaik sahaja projek disiapkan di Marina Muar, Pulau Toman dan Tanjung Gemok hanya beroperasi antara tempoh 1 hingga 4 bulan selepas ia disiapkan. Marina di Kuala Kedah, Pulau Mentagor dan Pulau Indah pula masih belum beroperasi semasa lawatan Audit dijalankan pada bulan Ogos dan Oktober 2009.” (more…)
