AJ & Rashdan: “What Costing cutting?” Part 4 – Rashdan abused of Power
Updates @ 2:30 pm on 25-3-2012: The cronies are on witch hunting in MAS. Heads of Department have been instructed to investigate who leaked out the information on the abused of power by the Deputy Group CEO of MAS, the Amok’s crony Rashdan, during the flight MH 122 on 1-1-2012. Instead of taking disciplinary actions against one of the cronies, they are only interested in victimizing MAS staff.
It is about time that MAS unions must all come out to protest against the VICTIMISATION of its members by the cronies in MAS. MAS is a GLC and therefore, it belongs to all Malaysians. The cronies should stop terrorizing MAS staffs to COVER UP their own misdeeds.
Updates @ 12:45 on 25-3-2012:Additional questions for Tan Sri Md, Yusof, AJ and Amok’s crony, Rashdan: Who decide to change the Logo of MAS to pale blue color? (It should have been changed to greay color!) Which advertising firm did the designing work for it and how much was the design fees? Rumours have it that it costsMAS RM8 million!!! I hope that it remains as just rummours. Can someone help on the designing fees issue? Thank you
Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar (Amok)’s crony and ex-business partner in BinaFikir Sdn Bhd, En Mohammed Rashdan Yusof aka Danny (Rashdan), has no respect for company long established policies and the MAS Fist Class passengers, who are paying top Ringgit for their travel time.
What do you expect from the clueless Amok’s crony, Rashdan, who has been handpicked by Amok to immediately head MAS after the said secret MAS – AirAsia share swap and CCF was inked. That was the beginning of disaster for MAS.
Amok’s crony has no respect for MAS logo and its long established policy of “NO infants in First Class”. No wonder even MAS logo has been splashed with blue, the funeral colour. Please read the press reports of what the ex-MD of MAS, YM Tengku Azmil Zahruddin had said on numerous occasions via tweeter in HERE& HERE.
On 1-1-2012 Amok’s crony, Rashdan, his wife, baby and nanny/maid were flying from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur via MAS flight MH 122. Amok’s crony must have gone for his needed holiday due to the “STRESS” that he had to undergo due to the planning and scheming of how to “SAVE” MAS from BLEEDING and “TURN AROUND” MAS in accordance with the “AGENDAS” of the current management’s so-called “Business Plan”. Poor fella! Please read HERE & HERE.
Amok’s crony, being a more than “UPRIGHT” Deputy Group CEO of MAS, he booked his baby, nanny/maid in the Economy Class. Of course, Amok Crony and his wife were booked for First Class, which was a “well deserved” privilege and also commensurate with his high office as Deputy Group CEO of MAS. Beside his fat salary and perks, it is also a form of reward for the “GREAT JOB” he had done for MAS which could be easily seen from above and in other postings in this Blog in HERE,HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE.
Amok’s crony behavior for his Sydney trip were most commendable. It was a case of “KEPIMPINAN MELALUI TAULADAN” or “Leadership by Example”. But it was a short live EXAMPLE!
At the check-in counter for MH122, a First Class passenger, Mr Hii, has requested for his two daughters to be upgraded to First Class but it was turned down. Mr Hii was upset by the refusal because he knew there were two vacant seats in the First Class cabin.
However, Amok’s crony, did not make the same request as Mr Hii. If he were to ask for his baby and nanny/maid to be upgraded, the ground staff would have to oblige by virtue of his position. The ground staff must be very impressed by Amok’s crony exemplary behavior then. Yours truly is sure that other MAS staff must be equally impressed by such an exemplary behavior of their Deputy Group CEO with BinaFikir’s WAU background.
After having boarded flight MH 122, Amok’s crony and his beloved wife were seated in the First Class cabin and his baby and nanny/maid were in Economy Class. At this stage Amok’s crony was still showing his exemplary behavior as Deputy Group CEO of MAS. The cabin crew must also be equally impressed with him and his beloved wife. As yours truly have said earlier, it was a short live impression. Amok’s crony is good in putting a good front.
After MH 122 took off and stabled in the air, Amok’s crony showed his true colour and his innate arrogance. HOW?
WITHOUT informing the Chief Steward/Stewardess in Charge (CIC) of MH 122, Amok’s crony just upgraded his baby and nanny/maid to the First Class cabin. It was as though MAS belongs to his family! Mr Hii saw this but didn’t make any comment.
There was a lot of “stress and commotion” in the First Class cabin after the said upgrading because the baby of Amok’s crony was screaming until Mr Hii was woken up from his sleep. Mr Hii was very upset and asked the CIC whether infant is allowed in the First Class cabin. The CIC just smiled and told Mr Hii “YES” in order to avoid an awful scene there.
The CIC then informed Amok’s crony and his beloved wife about Mr Hii’s complaint. Amok’s crony and his beloved wife just noted and ignored about the said complaint by Mr Hii, who was a paying passenger unlike Amok’s crony and his wife. The baby and nanny/maid of Amok’s crony continued to remain in the First Class cabin until MH 122 landed in KL. What a powerful Deputy Group CEO of MAS!
That was a clear arrogance and abused of power of Amok’s crony and his wife. It was an unbecoming of a Deputy Group CEO of an airlines. His behaviour has brought disrepute to MAS. This must be one of the way in which Amok’s crony was trying to “SAVE” and “TURN AROUND” MAS under the “BUSINESS PLAN”.
Lets see whether the PlaneConsult, also the consultant for AirAsia, will advise the clueless MAS management to take disciplinary action against Amok’s crony. Obviously not. “Dua kali lima, lima kali dua.” This is the clueless management style of the present regime who is bent to restructure MAS as advise by PlaneConsult. Please read HERE.
Amok’s crony, how are you going to save and turn around MAS with your arrogance of power and flagrantly breach MAS policy in front of the members of staff, whom you are supposed to lead. Your innate arrogance has no doubt alienated Mr Hii.
Your action to upgrade your baby’s nanny/maid without permission is a living proof of your disregards for MAS policy and MAS staff, who are under constant fear of disciplinary actions will be taken against them for not adhering to MAS policies or rules.
AJ and Md Nor will, of course, condone Amok’s crony intolerable behavior and no actions will be taken against him.
Furthermore, the clueless management team has been talking about “COST CUTTING” under the Business Plan. MAS Chairman, Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof (Md Nor) has recently said in the Star that “JUDGE US BY THE RESULT, NOT BY CHOICE OF PRESCRIPTION”. What a big joke!
Quite frankly, Amok’s crony arrogance and abused of power, will no doubt cause MAS to lose most a First Class passenger known as Mr Hii,. He will doubt spread the incident of baby screaming in MAS First Class cabin to his friends and business associates. Soon only MAS high-ranking officers, their family members and MAIDS will fill up MAS First Class cabin under the ill thought out “Business Plan”, which was probably hatched out by CON-sultants.
Until this date, AJ, Md Nor and Amok’s crony are still unable to tell MAS staffs what are the direction of MAS underthe so-called Business plan. There was no sign that their actions so far has generated revenues for MAS. On the contrary, their actions has generated more losses for MAS. It seems that generating more losses is their ultimate objective from day one of the said secret share swap and CC ?
Md Nor: MAS staff, members of public and many MPs have made their informed JUDGEMENT that the “PRESCRIPTION” of the creative accounting when you announced the RM2.5 billion losses, “invasion” of AirAsia staffs into key positions in MAS, paying RM18 million Pounds to sponsor QPR, the clear abused of power of Amok’s crony, setting up MAS Sdn Bhd with no AOC, cutting profitable routes, appointing PlaneConsult as MAS consultant, appointing Mr Shane Nollan as the Acting Commercial director and, most of all, selling of “non-core assets” will make MAS a real “asset light airlines”. It has been clearly demonstrated by your pet project WAU.
If the “SICK” and clueless MAS management is allowed to carry on to administer the said ill thought out “PRESCRIPTION”, MAS will soon vanish in thin air!
The government must step in now to immediately stop the ill thought CCF, the arrogance/abused of power of Amok’s crony, which are a CLEAR PRESCRIPTION to bring DISASTER to MAS. MAS needs real professionals with proven aviation credentials to manage and not by clueless cronies, who rely totally on consultant to think and operate for them. These cronies are the shameless lots.
Next Change/Akan Datang: After the cancellation of Firefly jet services/profitable routes by Amok’s crony, Firefly passengers have been upgraded to MAS with ZERO FARE.
