Kg Baru Subang Police Station Report No: 1810 / 2012 dated 16-03-2012
AirAsia X SdnBhd (AAX) has terminated its London, Paris and Mumbai routes in February 2012. The said termination involved 30,000 passengers. On 13-3-2012 AAX terminated its Christchurch routes from May 30, 2012.
AAX did a block booking for its passengers with MAS for its European and India routes.
Booking Reference No:WQSEW was for the following passengers:
SaifulAnuar Ahmad Shariff
Two passengers from AAX namely, Ms Noorezatti Matyacob and Mr Jain Abhinav were both AAX passengers and both traveled on 3 March 2012 on MAS flight MH 194.
The MAS tickets numbers for both ex-AAX passengers are as follows:
Ms Noorezatti Matyacob 2322416844159
Mr Jain Abhinav 2322416844150
Both tickets showed no fare and airport taxes has been charged by MAS except for fuel surcharge of RM390 for these two passengers. The MAS internet fare for Kuala Lumpur – Mumbai for 3-3-2012 was RM618 per passenger.
Under normal business practice of MAS, a corporate guarantee had to be given before MAS uplift any other airlines passengers but not in the case of AAX passengers.
There was an obvious no corporate governance and possible criminal elements involved in the way in which these two tickets were issued which has caused financial loss to MAS.
The key top managers in MAS are as follows:
En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, Group Chief Executive Officer
En Mohammed Rashdan Yusof, Deputy Chief Executive Officer
En Rozman Omar is the Chief Finance Officer of MAS
Mr Shane Nollan of PlaneConsult is the Acting Commercial Division
