On 8-2-2010 there was a clear directive from MAS management that no infant allowed in the First Class cabin. Thank you JJTension for sharing your information with the readers of this Blog. All MAS knew about this standing directive except the “INFILTRATORS”, who knowingly abused it and the others went all the way to CONDONE the abused.Thank you JJTension for your constructive engagements.
Yours truly hopes that MAS staffs and others will continue to engage in this Blog and share informations with other MAS staffs and other readers for the sake of really saving our national carrier and icon, MAS. MAS shall always be a true dark blue and red.
Although the cronies have changed the livery on the new A380 with new logo with pale funeral blue. It is the unquestionable culture of MAS since 1970s when it was created with the hearts and minds of former MAS staffs then and continuously to be developed and strengthen by current MAS staffs until the infamous secret MAS-AirAsia share swap and the said notorious CCF crept into MAS after 9-8-2011. But both have failed to break the resistance to break the loyalty of MAS staffs but intact it has been strengthen.
They have united the MAS staffs against the top management and a handful of disloyal union leaders, who have secretly signed the Collective Agreement without consulting its members and other MAS Unions.
Yours truly believes that MAS staffs will always remain loyal with the famous dark blue and red logo based on “WAU BULAN” from Kelantan, yours truly kampung, despite the poor attempts made by the cronies to change it. The cronies changed of the said livery to funeral blue has cost MAS money. Rumours have it that the designing bill cost MAS RM8 million! Hope this was not true otherwise it will be another QPR’s episode of wasting 18 mil Pounds i.e spending MAS money recklessly when the cronies has been screaming that MAS was BLEEDING.
The MAS cultures shall remain and be maintained forever. MAS cultures shall not be painted in RED by the pen pushers cum cronies. MAS shall compete with all airlines including AirAsia and AirAsia X Sdn Bhd.
The top management and Panamera Dead Woods come and go but MAS culture shall remain as the MAS that we know. Of course, it is not the culture of allowing and encouraging LEAKAGES by top management.
When there is a political will to plug the LEAKAGES, MAS shall be back to its GLORIOUS day again like when at one time it has won many international AWARDS, which other airlines could only dream about them. Just as a reminders to Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar (Amok), Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof (Md Nor) and En Ahmad Jauhari Yahya (AJ):
2001 – 2006 “WORLD BEST CABIN CREW”
2001 – 2006 “BEST CABIN ECONOMY SERVICE”
2001 – 2006 “BEST FIRST CLASS SERVICE”
That goes for the declaration by En Ahamd Jauhari Yahya (AJ), the MAS Group CEO, during the “Briefing of MPs” at Parliament House on 26-3-2012.
A pertinent question had to be asked why MAS perforamnce begins to slack after 2006: Was it due to no or little support given to MAS from Khaznah after 2006?
Anyway Thank God MAS that MAS didn’t win “The Best Low Cost Carrier” because the competition was amongst a few non-IATA airlines where many have already gone BURST leaving behind a handful to compete! The latest good example of low cost carrier in deep financial trouble is Kingfisher. Please read HERE & HERE.
At least when Kingfisher cut its overseas routes, it was widely reported in the press in their home land and overseas that it was due to their huge debts unlike certain airlines. No press reported the actual state of affairs but instead publishing propaganda by stressing it was all due to ‘HIGH COST FUEL” as though for short haul flight are using “LOW COST FUEL”! It was due to sub-standard journalism and motivated by advertising revenue.
To MAS staffs especially the cabin crews, pilots, ground staffs and front lines staffs other, in the hearts and minds of Malaysians we know that you are still our BEST AMBASSADOR and will always be the BEST in carrying our national flag worldwide.
Forget about what the top management has said recently that your productivity were low. We know that the productivities of top management of MAS, the appointed consultant PlaneConsult and recent imports fromAirAsia are not only negligilble but very suspect.
MAS staffs don’t allow the comments and actions affect your MAS cultures and courage. It is during this time that each and every single MAS staff must show your courage and commitment to our national carrier and icon, MAS, to stand up against any destructive acts of unscrupulous persons. If MASEUS is no longer incapable of standing up for you, there are other MAS unions like MESA, MAPA and NUFAM and others.
The time to stand up and be counted is NOW or never. MAS Staffs, it is your duty and other Malaysians to stand up for our national carrier and icon, MAS. Of course, MAS has problems with LEAKAGES, which cannot be solved by the said secure share swap and definitely not with CCF, which was one sided in favor of AirAsia and AirAsia X Sdn Bhd as cane clearly seen so far. No difference to the sale of MAS Catering Sdn Bhd and the one sided 25 years catering contract under WAU, the BRAINCHILD of Tan Sri Md Nor Yusof and BinaFikir Sdn Bhd (the co-founders were Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar and Mohammed Rashdan Yusof aka Danny.
Next week Parliament will be debating on the Supplementary Budget, yours truly and other MPs shall definitely speak up for MAS staffs and MAS. Yours truly shall press MOF to tell Parliament how much did MAS pay BinaFikir Sdn Bhd for WAU. Yours truly believes that the fees must be very high that’s why until today this issue has been conspicuosly avoided by the MOF Deputy Minister Datuk Awang Adik recently.
Below is the directive on the “Infants Ban” in First Class cabin.
