Updates on 30-3-2012: Please read an interesting article by ABITW entitled “As long as MAS is here, no fear”.
Updates @ 11:30 pm on 28-3-2012: Parliament ended at about 10:00 pm just now. Will post what YB Datuk Awang Adik, the Deputy Minister of Finance, has replied in Parliament as soon as yours truly got a copy of the Handsard. Of course, he didn’t answer all the pertinent questions raised by several MPs especially “why was there a need for CCF to couple with share swap?” and what yours truly have asked in HERE & HERE during the policy Debate on the Royal Address. He was skirting around.
Of course, he was in great pain to justify that CCF is good for both MAS and AirAsia. Like AAX Sdn Bhd stopped flying to London and MAS is the only airlines flying to London direct. MAS therefore, benefited from uplifting the passengers from AA X Sdn Bhd. He was so proud to state that MAS got paid RM20 million for it. Yours truly interjected and told him that it was not due to fuel cost that make AirAsia terminated its flight to Europe and India. The reason being that there is no such fuel called “LOW COST FUEL” and “HIGH COST FUEL”. And there are some other reason. Why other airlines could still fly to London despite the increased in fuel cost?
He was also trying to give the impression that all is well and the staffs are very happy. Hence, the Union signed a Collective Agreement (CA) and despite MAS is BLEEDING, MAS management still agreed to the 5% increment in salary. But he didn’t tell Parliament about the extension of the retirement age by two years and how the CA was signed. Yours truly told him how the CA was signed by En Malek of MASEUS without discussing the CA with its members and etc. Yours truly also told him that the total numbers of the affected AA X Sdn Bhd passengers are about 35,000 and not 30,000 as declared. The fare charged for these category of passengers was not based on full fare as what AJ told the MPs during the BRIEFING on 26-02-2012.
There was no bank guarantee provided by AirAsia X Sdn Bhd to MAS as a security to ensure full payment. It is the long established policy of MAS to ask for Bank Guarantee under such circumstances. By the away, the Deputy Minister has admitted that during the said briefing the MPS were unhappy about the said share swap and CCF. Lastly, he chose to ignore the question: How much did MAS pay BinaFikir Sdn Bhd for the WAU project? WAU was to make MAS “an asset light airline” in 2002/2003 when Md Nor was the MD of MAS. Full details of this part of the debate will be posted as soon as the Hansard is made available tomorrow or Monday.
Updates @ 9:15 pm on 28-3-2012 from Parliament: Yours truly just spoke about the lies by Rashdan and Md Nor, MAS Catering, payments of the uplifting of AA X passengers from its terminated routes, upgrading of Rashdan’s maid to First Class cabin and the appointment of PlaneConsult in Parliament. Now waiting for Deputy Minister of MOF to provide answers.
During the MAS Town Hall meeting today, MAS top management was represented by its Chairman, Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof (Md Nor), the chief architect of WAU, AJ and Rashdan, the Amok’s crony, also one of the architects of WAU when he was in BinaFikir Sdn Bhd. It was also attended by Heads of Department and leaders union in Theater 1, MAS Academy.
Yours truly has been told by reliable sources that during this morning meeting, Md Nor, said that during the Briefing Session with MPs on 16-3-2012 all the MPs now understand the Business Plan. He also said that YB Bung Mokhtar, MP for Kinabatangan said “I salaute you AJ!”. This was a white lie. None of the MPs present spoke out in support of MAS management. YB Bung Mokhtar condemned the MAS – AirAsia share swap and CCF, and demanded the Government to cancel them immediately as it was against the interest of MAS.
Md Nor also told the said meeting that everything appeared in all the blogs about MAS are just “noises”. Unfortunately, Md Nor dare not call for a press conference to deny and/or refute what have been written in all the blogs about the incompetence of the top management of MAS.
Amok’s crony was asked about him upgrading of his maid and baby to First Class cabin. Amok’s crony, of course, denied that there was such an upgrading made by him on 1-2-2012 flight MH122. He also said that what have appeared in yours truly ‘s blog, malaysiafamily, jebat must die and others are defamtory to his good name becasue not true.
Yours truly has been told that Amok’s crony also invoked God’s name (Demi Allah …) and recited phrases in the Quaran. Perhaps, it was an attempt to convince those present that he was telling the truth by invoking Allah’s name. Please look at the above posting of Amok’s crony VOYAGE REPORT of MH 122 under the care and control of Captain Mohd Yunus Ibrahim. The said report speaks for itself.
It is now left to all the MAS Unions and Heads of Department and others to lodge an official complaint against Amok’s crony over this matter.
Whilst waiting for MOF to answer those matters raised in the said share swap and CCF in Parliament, yours truly posts this article for all to read and judge whether what have been written were “NOISES” and what have been said by Md Nor and Amok’s crony were the real noises and sworn statement under God’s name by Rashdan was a white lies. Got to end now YB Awang Adik is answering now.
