Azhari Mohd Dahlan is still head of MAS Engineering

The highly qualified En Azhari Mohd Dahlan is still the CEO of MAS Aerospace Engineering

Both En Abdul Aziz Abu Bakar, Executive Vice President, Aircraft Finance & Management and En Al-Ishsal Ishak, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Products have resigned from MAS. En Azhari Mohd Dahlan is still holding on as the CEO of MAS Aerospace Engineering despite the MAS-AirAsia share swap has been reversed in May 2012.  Can someone help to list down En Azhari Mohd Dahlan’s great achievements in MAS from February 2012 until now?

Following my circular on the Group Organisation Structure dated 16 August 2012, I am pleased to announce organisation structures for the respective divisions effective Monday, 1 October 2012. This supersedes the structures issued earlier.
With this, I am confident we are now aligned and better coordinated as a team to deliver on our goals to turnaround our Company.
At the same time, I wish inform everyone that Abdul Aziz Abu Bakar, Executive Vice President, Aircraft Finance & Management and Al-Ishsal Ishak, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Products have decided to leave to pursue new challenges outside the Malaysia Airlines group. Their last day will be 30 September 2012.
Please join me in taking this opportunity to thank both Aziz and Al-Ishsal for their contributions and commitment to Malaysia Airlines and I wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
Thank you.

    He was appointed when the Khazanah appointed Nanny Danny and the Pariah were calling the shots in MAS. Now that the share suap has been reversed, so the useless botak should be thrown out from MAS.

    Didn’t know that he is so thick skin. Perhaps the botak still had to complete his “unfinished” duties in engineering.

    We are watching you botak. You will have to leave in disgrace like your master.

        Nora and Aura, absolutely correct! The wimps aka bosses in E&M actually can say MAE Boleh! with AJ, Botak and Amin!What else can the rest of us say, if the bosses have no balls, what hope is there for the rest?

  2. Husni

    Danny, Shane Nollan, PlaneConsult and Rozman Omar have all left except the tiada maruah botak is still holding on dearly to the post. what is the point? The botak is just like a leper in MAS. No one wants to talk to him except one or two of his cronies.

    Botak, your boss has set up his hq in Jakarta. Your expertise if any will definitely be needed there. TO do what? you should ask the pariah. But do not need idiot like you in MAS. Pleas pack up your bag and get lost to Jakarta.

    Time to start online signature campaign. Once it reach 10,000 it should be sent to the PM. WIth the election round the corner, PM better respond with some actions.

    It is clear that he had overstayed in MAS. To bad if his old job at AA is already taken. That is a problem for AA & Khazanah to settle, not for MAS to be saddled with.

    One angle to explore – he may be related to someone or some people in Khazanah. Therefore he is being given privileged position. In which case, a search / investigation by MAS employees on his background is required. Full exposure must be done.

    Ultimately the goal is to have a certified and qualified person to manage engineering operations in MAS. There had been too many delays and technical problems besetting MAS planes, even the newly purchased AIrbus a380.

    Thank you.

    1. Why there are so many TBA in the newly released charts?
    2. Still rushing or simply of no internal talent because of no succession plan?
    3. Can an organisation works by merely having positions without accountable persons?

    1. xMAS Engineering

      @Kunyit Hidup

      How could 2 TBA out of 62 boxes be considered many?
      Accountability IS integral with any position is a basic fundamental.

      1. Kunyit Hidup

        Dear xMAS,

        I said ‘TBA in the newly released charts’.

        Please recalculate, not only in MAE but from the first layer and throughout all divisions. Example, only 1 out of 5 boxes filled up in Marketing & Products!

  5. GE Man

    AJ , after almost a year in MAS , by now you should know and you had seen by your own eye the true color of both bo(otak) head Azhari and ex GE Man bo(otak) head Aminuddin Zakaria during last week (27 Sept 2012) town hall in SZB.

    You had witnessed how arrogant both of them are and how all MAS Engineering staff giving this two bo(otak) head a cold shoulder and how they all wanted this two bo(otak) kick off from MAS .This organization will fail if this continues.

    How come this two bo(otak) head cant even answer a simple question of how much business did they bring in the last one year as the CEO/deputy CEO of MAS MAE ?

    AJ , The only way is you kick both off them before more damaged done.

    Here is the list of this two bo(otak) head Azhari and Aminudin greatest achievement as MAS MAE CEO and deputy CEO respectively ;

    1) MAS MAE slipped down from first class world MRO’s to third class pariah’s MRO.

    2) Losing own ATR 75 maintenance contract to SAE.

    3) Losing Batavia Air / Lion Air B737 maintenance contract to AIROD

    4) Losing MYR 120 million on B737-400 Clasic buy back deal .MAS Engineering had sign an agreement with AAR to purchase back 6 unit of this B737-400 classics from AAR due MAS MAE could not complied with the EOL (End Of Lease ) terms .The surprising deal is that the purchase price per aircraft is MYR 19.8 million (USD 6.4 mil). The market price is only USD 2.5 million (MYR 7.75 mill) each . (Pls refer for aircraft prices)
    MAS is paying 2.5 times more then the market price ! AJ , you had been duped by this two bo(otak) head.

    5)Losing millions for agreeing with the B737-800 steel brakes changes to carbon brakes which will cost 10 millions ringgit per year and whooping 200 million Ringgit over the 20 years life of these aircraft. The vested group issued direct PO to one of carbon brake manufacturer without going thru’ a normal procurement procedure and WITHOUT any Board approvals !! Most operator have not yet gone for carbon brakes because till now Boeing has not yet certified any radial tires for use with carbon brakes. Now MAS is buying the new carbon brakes and throw away as scrap the steel brakes inventory worth 20 millions ringgit.

    8) Losing millions for collaborating on the A380 seat re-configuration at the wimp and fancy of the Pariah which cost MAS at least MYR 4 million per ship set . With 6 unit A380 ordered, this will add an additional cost of MYR 24 million to MAS and the “unused brand new seats” to be scrap.

    9) MAS may also lose millions for B777 seat and IFE retrofit program worth at least MYR 150 million for the B777 fleet. These B777 will be phased out in 3-5 years time and yet the retrofit program is being initiated for benefiting a vested group.

    10) Losing millions after proceeding to signed a MYR 5 billion contract for A380 Trent 900 Engine Total Care Maintenance Program with Rolls Royce for as long as MAS is flying this A380 aircraft i.e. UNTILL PERPETUITY – to date MAS has never ever signed an agreed without any firm expiry date. No engineering and financial evaluation was carried out and NO BOARD approval sought. All recommended by this two bo(otak) head Azhari and Amin.

    11) Losing of MYR 1.1 billion on the making as Azhari and Amin is now trying to cook the B737-800 engine CFM56-7B PBTH (Power By The Hour) contract worth at least MYR 2. 2 billion (minimum 10 years contract) with about 200 engines by trying to go for direct award with a company in which bo(otak) head Aminuddin is their ex. and has vested interest . AJ will again be duped by this bo(otak) duo by saying his ex will give good discount . And bo(otak) Aminuddin ex is now sending new regional sales director by the name of Azmooon to finalise this deal with GE. If the direct nego goes thru , MAS are expected to loose MYR 1.1 billion. GE Man will expose all the papers in the blog if direct nego is inked instead of open tender which will save MAS a whooping MYR 1.1 billion .

    12)Losing of hundreds of million on the making as Azhari and Amin is trying to figure out who will get the B737-800 / B777 / A380 / B747-400 APU maintenance contract worth more then a 1 billion ringgit . A total of more then 150 units of APU (Auxillary Power Unit) is to be contract out for maintenance soon.

    13) Illegally allowing A330 registration 9M-MTF continue to fly .aircraft had an incident of heavy landing on 26 July 2012 .Airbus Industries , the aircraft manufacturer ,had told MAS engineering that the landing gear must be replaced at or before 30 days from date of incident ( e mail trail from Airbus Industries is with GE Man) as it is considered un-serviceable.MAS can still fly the aircraft within 30 days if MAS Engineering give dispensation by carrying out the special inspection as per Airbus Industries instruction every 5 positioning flight.Some how , as the CEO of MAS Engineering, Azhari had allowed the aircraft flying EVEN after 30 days which is illegal and had put the aircraft , crew and passenger under extreme danger , as the gear may collapsed or fail at any time.

    14) Losing millions due 5 major technical incident within 6 months , in-flight shut down and air turn back/diverted . As head of engineering bo(otak) should be accountable .

    15) Loosing millions in the making on the A330 PBTH (Power By The Hours), bo(otak) head Azhari issuing a LOI to LHT for the A330 Component support PBTH (Power By The Hour) and workshop JV contract worth half a billion ringgit. The pariah, Azhari , An… and LHT people had secret dinner meeting in Bangsar restaurant trying to strike a deal. After being exposed and questions of impropriety, LHT backed out of the deal to avoid Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) that AJ recently made all aware by Integrity Bulletin of August and bo(otak) head Azhari now switching horse to SRT owned by MUBADALA Aerospace, a flagship MRO Abu of Dhabi, another bidders. NOW, For unknown reason bo(otak) head Azhari has become close with Air France, another bidders – definitely they must have been assured of some better sweeteners. MASEU is against this workshop JV as it is seen that after 30 years of successful achievement to make MAS E&M a global leader suddenly these two bo(otak) heads do not consider MAS engineers as being capable of running our own workshop.

    16) After less then a month of restructuring, bo(otak) head realized he could not cope running everything solely by himself after loosing millions due to his total ignorance on how to overcome the problems, so now he has given the responsibility of MRO/Hangar operation to one of his close ally but still trying to control the gold mine @ procurement (pariah’s interest).

    These two bo(otak) heads should be accountable for all the above for directly and indirectly inflicting the damages to MAS, both of you either leave now or you will leave in disgrace……….

  6. Ahmad Jahil

    Ha ha ha, what a screwed up management.
    One by one leaving, AJ pun will soon belah leaving the Chairman to run the Company to the ground.

    Good luck, MAS!

  7. Tony Pariah

    satu idea terbaik olih Economist Kampung. Saya support. Juga kita patut ada kan sembahyang hajat dan berdoa beramai ramai. saya rasa agama lain juga ada cara yang tersendiri dan harus lakukan yang sama untuk kebaikan semua orang.

  8. Zaki

    GE Man

    Good points. Lets see whether the botak and the kuncu can defend what have been stated by GE Man. Lets expose the botak further. Lets expose him and his kuncu until they are thrown out from MAS in disgrace like Nanny Danny.

    MAS will never recover with this botak around. The appointment of the botak was due to Nanny, Pariah and the little Napoleons in Khazanah.

  9. LAE ****

    GE Man, thank you very much for what you did here. Very highly appreciated. Please do not stop until these bast..ds are gone, preferably in disgrace. Myself and few friends, that I know of down here are with you.

    Looking at botak’s picture in this blog, how I wish I one day my foot will land on that head.

    GE Man, thank you again.

    Botak, f… you, f… you, f… you and f… you!

    Thank you.

  10. Gerald

    This botak tak tahu malu. May be he has no way out as he is also not wanted any where else including AA. Ever since he was parachuted into MAS by Nanny Danny and Pariah he has nothing to show in MAS except drawing fat salary.

    He is shun by many in Engineering. To get him out of MAS, we had to physically throw him out into the monsoon drain.

  11. Sham

    Agreed the botak has nothing to show fro the time he has been in MAS except problems after problems. He himself is thew big problem. The botak is just a bodoh sombong.

    Since he chose to hang on for the sake of his fat salary, we should keep a watchful eyes on his activities and expose him in YB’s blog. Lets see how long he can hold on to the CEO post.

  12. Mat

    This botak is just muka tebal and tak tahu malu. We must tell him on his face that he was forced upon MAS by the share suap by the little napoleons like Nanny Danny from Khazanah. Now share suap sudah koyak which means that it was a wrong decision made by the little napoleon, it should follow suit that the botak’s appointment was also wrong. If there was no share suap, the botak will not even dare to dream that he will be the CEO of the Engineering Department.

    Until this day this botak has got nothing to show except problems.

    Botak tiada maruahkah?? Nak gaji buta sahaja je.

  13. Staff yang sedih

    Salam Ahmad Jauhari… Hey can I just call u ‘boss’?

    So how was your day at work? (I’m assuming u r doing ur job-for MAS INTEREST lah). I am damn sure u keep urself updated on this blog. If not u urself read it, your PA, sec, assistant or watever you wanna call it read this blog and brief you.

    I think there were few things (if not many) that u started to fulfill ur employee’s requests. Owh by the way, I’m one of the employees. But what about this Azhari Dhalan here boss? What are you trying to do? Or who are you trying to please? Or you sudah kena ikat?

    So many contracts we’ve lost to other people, so many incidents and most importantly – the dissatisfaction of MAS staffs. Hey, anak buah u la boss… Pekerja2 yg diketuai oleh awak wahai Encik Jauhari!

    Why are u putting other people’s interest at the top instead of we down here that work so hard for this beloved company? Don’t say u love this company lah. One year is not enough for you to love MAS. But that’s not your fault. May be if jodoh u with MAS lama, then u will understand. Please do your job boss. Do it sincerely. So many things people wrote here, takkan u xde akal nak fikir. You are the CEO man! Can u please tell us why is Azhari still around? Stop shooting emails asking us to unite, focus on the job bla bla bla… We always focused down here, but watching company lost so much money for nothing really hurts.

    Enough la boss. U tak kesian ke kat all of us yg trying so hard exposing those hanky panky things that have been going on? U think GE Man likes to expose all these bad things about the company to the whole world if not for his love to this company? And not to mention other people also.

    Boss, why those who were parachuted into MAS had gone except for this botak? What the hell is happening? We’ve been asking many times here but u r not answering. Sudah lah tu boss. Jadilah seorang muslim yg amanah ye. Takut2 kita tak sempat bertaubat je.. Ingatan utk diri saya juga.

    Assalamualaikum En Ahmad Jauhari, MAS Boss.

  14. Jamal MAS

    Hey incompetence Botak! WTF are you holding on to your post when you are not wanted after Nanny Danny and pariah have left. I supposed you are challenging us to throw you out in disgrace!

    AJ please waste no time in giving this botak the boot like what you have done to Martin Burrow!

  15. Yusri

    heard that YB whacked the botak in Parliament a few days ago. Padan muka si botak. tak tahu malu lagi. Kena kena halau dia keluar dari MAS.

    1. Why must be unhappy with them while they are trying to make improvement for MAS.Are you or the moderator one of the unhappy fella with what happening in MAS now.Now Tony and the gang mostly are gone.To me,Ahmad Jauhari and Azhari Dahlan really show positive attitude towards the process of the recovery of MAS.FYI mod,on engineering site,Azhari Dahlan managed to sort what had contributed to such big loss in Engineering.One of it is the purchasing power of executive was so high that time.No wonder after details inspection and investigation,Azhari found lot of unused spares for aircraft which no longer in service eg: DC10 still lying on the main stores floor.What he did is good because now we can know who is the real culprit that causes MAS lot of losses.Azhari was employee to MAS too during 90′s.But in this case although he is from our conteder,he has been profeesional enough as MAE CEO.I know why the issue is so hot because most of the excutives and bosses in MAE are unhappy because their extra income source has been disrupted

    1. pemerhati e&m

      Ok lah tuh…dpt jimat duit. Dapat title as manager tp bayar gaji controller…jimat rm2k gaji basic satu kepala tuh..

      Belum kira penjimatan yg kat bawah2 dia yg dpt naik atas nama kronisma dan nepotisma…

  16. so sweet

    That is because some of them are under monitoring due to unneccesary action.Azhari wants them to take incharge on spare matter which has causes MAE lot of losses.All of these managers will beaccountable on what’s happening because aircraft spares not cheap maa

  17. Clueless Idiot

    If Al Ishal ishak has joined AirAsia then everything fall into places why there was a need for re-branding and change of logo. However, the topless management should have known better and stop the re-branding exercise but instead all the clueless just approved it. That is the trouble with the clueless management of MAS.

  18. 30%MAS

    It is sad to read all these comments with accusations, personal attacks, hidden agendas and unprofessional words. For the love of MAS and proud of Malaysian, let us provide positive/constructive feedbacks to bring back the glory of MAS and stop the bleeding.

    1. MAS boy


      I am equally sad that the clueless top management was trying to fool MAS staff and Malaysian public that the re-branding and designing fees charged by Landor and ogilvy Mather was RM600,000. It was the joke for us.

      The top ,management should come clean but they are trying to hide things from us and they expect us to move on. Aj and Md nor are not sincere. No one will believe them that the cost was RM600,000 except themselves.

      Until this day they are still trying to bullshit their way by invoking the non-disclosure and secrecy clause for fees charged by the CON sultant.

    2. Just don't understand

      How to bring MAS back to glory when you have them hiding things from us. Even the cost of designing fees was a secret. Only for the idiots to spend and at the same time telling us that MAS is bleeding when it suits them.

      After making stupid decision to re-brand and thing went bad, the botak just threw in the trouble to resign. So problem solved. This is what the idiot wants us to think and behave.

      When another another botak resign because of problems are about going to surface, then we ask by those idiots lets forget about it and move on. Why can we take precautionary measure when we are knew about them and get rid of the dead wood.

  19. Intelligence

    The MAS rot and resources bleed started with TR and continues till today. Employees survey ends tomorrow. Will we know the real results from the clueless management? Or will it be more BS and cover-ups?
