Aj & Rashdan: “WHAT COST CUTTING?” Part 3 – Zero Fare for uplifting 30,000 passengers of AirAsia X
Updates @2:40 pm 16-3-2012: The police report has been officially lodged at about 12 noon underKg Baru Subang Report No: 1810 / 12. The detail of the said police report will be posted later.
Updates @ 9:30 am 16-3-2012:A police report will be lodged at 11:30 am at Jalan Bandar Police Station regarding this matter.
En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya (AJ), the Group CEO of MAS and En Mohammed Rashdan Yusofaka Danny (Rashdan), Deputy Group CEO of MAS and an Amok’s crony, have stressed on cost cutting under their New Business Plan to save MAS. Are they seriously walking their talks or just a slogan for people with consultant mentality to fool the Government and the entire nation?Please look at the above online ticket of one Ms Noorezzati Matyacob Mr Jain Abhihab. He was one of the 30,000 of AirAsia x Sdn Bhd passengers that have been uplifted by MAS recently. Please examine the above online ticket. This passenger travelled on 3-3-2012 from Kuala Lumpur to Munbai. The MAS internet fare for Kuala Lumpur – Mumbai on that date was RM618-00 excluding other charges like fuel surcharge, airport tax and etc. MAS uplifted this AirAsia X Sdn Bhd passenger with the only payment of RM390for fuel surcharge.
From this passenger alone, MAS has incurred losses of at least RM618 without taking into account the airport tax, which MAS had to pay out and other cost. Would this be a case of AirAsia X Sdn Bhd has the luxury of keeping the fare paid by this passenger and the other 30,000 passengers that MAS have to uplift due to the terminations of its routes to London, Paris and Mumbai? Not a bad business deal after all! “NOW EVERYONE CAN TAKE MAS FOR A RIDE!” No wonder AirAsia X Sdn Bhd officer announced with confidence that those affected 30,000 passengers can still travel to their destinations without having to pay extra charges in fare.
Now it is clear why Mr Shane Nollan, of PlaneConsult,was appointed as the Acting Commercial Director for MAS. What is he doing about this as the Acting Commercial Director? Knowingly sleeping on his job or he has been instructed to pretend to be stupid. This is what the handpicked Mat Salleh consultant by the Amok’s crony, Rashdan, for MAS.
It is always the policy of MAS to ask for a bank guarantee when it is uplifting passengers from other airlines. In this case, although the MAS staff has asked for bank guarantee from AirAsia X Sdn Bhd, the notorious TRIO must have overruled the staff. Thus, no bank guarantee was given by AirAsia X Sdn Bhd for uplifting the 30,000 passenger. This was a very stupid way of doing business. Perhaps this has been advised by MAS consultant, PlaneConsult, which is also the consultant for AirAsia Bhd and AirAsia X Sdn Bhd. Further, the Executive Chairman and MD of Plane Consult is none other than Mr Conor McCarthy, who is also the co-founder of AirAsia and still is a director of AirAsia.
The appointment of PlaneConsult by Amok’s crony and AJ or by the MAS Board as Puan Nor Zalida Ahmad, the Head of strategic communication, has said in her letter to the Star today that it was not down by Amok’s crony Rashdan but by the Board of MAS, was a decision to encourage CONFLICT OF INTEREST.
AJ or Amok’s crony, Rashdan and/or the Board of Directors of MAS must take immediate actions to terminate the services of PlaneConsult as the said appointment was not in the best interest of MAS. The evidence are too glaringly. All we need to show is the appointment of Nor Zalida Ahmad, who is the niece of Datuk kamarudin Meranun of AirAsia and sister to En Zaman Ahmad, who is the Head of Customer Experience and Technology of AirAsia, as Head of strategic communication, En Azhari Dhalan as Head of MAS Engineering Division and En Rozman Omar as the CFO of MAS. Please read in HERE.
Yours truly cannot believe that such losing business arrangement was part of the “COMPREHENSIVE COLLABORATIVE FRAMEWORK” (CCF) and the synergy between MAS and AirAsia as announced by Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, the MD of Khazanah Nasional, after inking of the secret MAS-AirAsia share swap on 9-8-2011.
To AJ, Rashdan, the Amok’s crony, En Rozman Omar, the identified individual that has been handpicked by PlaneConsult to be the CFO of MAS and the Board of Directors of MAS: WHAT THE TRIO HAVE BEEN DOING IN MAS? WAS THIS THE WAY TO DO BUSINESS? WAS THIS PART OF YOUR SO-CALLED COST CUTTING UNDER THE NEW BUSINESS PLANS? WAS THIS DECISION PART OF THE CCF?
May I sincerely ask the notorious TRIO, Do you have any conscience as Malaysians dealing with public fund when you all did such a stupidest thing against the future of 20,000 human beings known as (perkerja-perkerja MAS) and our national interest?
AJ, you have said on 22-2-2012: “For his mission at Malaysia Airlines, he knows what his immediate priorities are: cut losses, weed out unprofitable routes, woo back premium customers, raise productivity among employees and boost their morale.”, in HERE. Do you honestly and with clear conscience believe that what you, Amok’s crony, Rashdan, En Rozman Omar and Mr Shane Nollan have done and are doing would “boost” the morale of MAS staff?
A formal complaint must be lodged with MyCC as this blatant act of not charging fare by MAS for uplifting the 30,000 passengers of AirAsia X Sdn Bhd is against the spirit of competition and therefore has contravened the Competition Act, 2010.
What the notorious TRIO have done so far have no doubt inflicted more damage and losses to MAS. The actions to stop had to be immediate before MAS is totally condemned by the notorious TRIO and the ineffective Board of Directors of MAS which consist of Tan Sri Tony Fernandes (AirAsia), Datuk Kamarudin Meranun (AirAsia), Datuk Azman Yahya (also a director in AirAsia), Tan Sri Wan Azmi Wan Hamzah, Datuk Krishnan Tan, Datuk Rohana (Astro) and an officer of Ministry of Finance.
Yours truly has been informed by sources in MAS that a Panel was set up consisting of officers from PlaneConsult, Ernst & Young and representative of MAS Management to force upon Head of Department in MAS to reduce its staff in their department. Is this a scheme to fit into the agenda of 1st May 2012 where MAS Sdn Bhd will come into operation. The Amok’s crony, Rashdan, has been known to have constantly referred MAS Sdn Bhd as “my airline! Well, not surprising to me as Rashdan’s ego is as high as KL Twin Towers! It is hoped that this was not true. But rumors coming out from MAS these days seemed to be true.
Mr YAB PM, this is a crystal clear case of “HARAPKAN PAGAR, PAGAR MAKAN PADI!” Mr YAB PM, do you still require more evidence to act than what have been produced in the Blog of yours truly?
Mr YAB PM, may yours truly plea to you to step in immediately in the light of this evidence to remove all the notorious TRIO and ex-AirAsia officers (Nor Zalida Ahamd and En Azhari Dhalan) in MAS and the Board of Directors of MAS for failing in their duties to look after the interests of MAS and, most of all, their inertia have contributed to the existing LEAKAGES, which is the main problem in MAS. Yours truly also beseech YAB PM to call upon MACC and other Government agencies to move in to thoroughly investigate into what the TRIO and the Board of Directors of MAS have done and doing by rubber stamping what the notorious TRIO have done.
