Updates @ 7 pm on 22-11-2012:  (Dari Hansard yang belum disemak)

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: [Ketawa] Untuk menjawab soalan yang dibangkitkan oleh Yang Berhormat Wangsa Maju berkenaan dengan mengapa seorang penjawat DCA menerbangkan A380 yang dimiliki oleh MAS terus ke Kuala Lumpur. Untuk menjawab Yang Berhormat, ini sebenarnya dibenarkan kerana Kapten Sumali ini, beliau adalah seorang yang mahir dengan semua jenis pesawat yang beliau akan menentukan kelayakan juruterbang dan sebagainya. So ini adalah within the permission untuk beliau membawa balik dan menerbangkan A380 untuk meletakkan tafsiran kepada lesen pilot beliau.

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Yang Berhormat Menteri, minta penjelasan sedikit. Kapten Sumali ini adalah seorang pegawai DCA. Tugasnya adalah untuk safety audit kapal terbang dan keselamatan yang lain. So itu bukan tugas dia. Persoalannya adalah itu bukan tugas dia. Dia bukan pilot. Saya tidak menyoal kelayakan dia.

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: Beliau juga seorang pilot dan juga perlu mematuhi untuk upgrade dan update tentang pesawat-pesawat yang baru dalam kerja beliau. Jadi beliau boleh lebih faham tentang perkara-perkara yang tertentu dan untuk mengiktiraf pilots yang lain.

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Ya. Beliau bukan pilot MAS. Jadinya beliau tidak ada hak.

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: Ya, beliau memang bukan pilot MAS.

DR 21.11.2012 44

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Beliau bekerja untuk DCA.
Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: Beliau tidak dibayar oleh MAS juga.
Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Ya, bukan dibayar. Masalahnya conflict of interest. Beliau untuk menjaga keselamatan kapal terbang, flight dan sebagainya. Beliau dari situ boleh ambil masa, time off kerja beliau dan pergi bawa kapal terbang. Ini sudah salah daripada segi abuse of posisi.

Dato’ Seri Kong Cho Ha: No, no. Tidak, tidak. Jadi, untuk itu…
Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Itulah masalah Yang Berhormat Menteri. 

Updates @ 6 pm 21-11-2012:  When yours truly asked YB Datuk Kong, the Minister of Transport, why the additional KL/Sydney/KL routes that were granted exclusively to MAS were awarded to AirAsia X in 2011, he told Parliament that on 10-12-2011 MAS wrote a letter to MOT to state that it has no objection for the said routes to be given to AirAsia X.

Y.B. TUAN WEE CHOO KEONG [WANGSA MAJU] minta MENTERI KEWANGAN menyatakan secara terperinci dari masa keputusan dibuat untuk penukaran saham antara MAS dan AirAsia (share swap) pada 9-8-2011 sehingga pembatalan (reverse) transaksi tersebut pada 2-5-2012 apakah keputusan-keputusan yang bersifat dasar yang telah dibuat oleh Penurusan Tertinggi yang membelakangkan Lembaga Pengarah yang kemudiannya terpaksa di’rubber’ setemkan oleh Lembaga Pengarah kemudiannya, contoh penajaan, “re-branding” dan penukaran warna korporat MAS.

JAWAPAN

 Tuan Yang di-Pertua,

Untuk makluman Yang Berhormat, semasa pertukaran saham MAS dan AirAsia dilaksanakan pada 9 Ogos 2011, MAS telah menubuhkan Executives Committee (EXCO) yang dianggotai oleh Ahli Lembaga Pengarah MAS bertujuan untuk memantau dan menyelia pengurusan syarikat. Di antara keputusan dasar yang dilakukan oleh EXCO adalah penajaan pasukan Queens Park Ranger (QPR) dan pengumuman mengenai transaksi berkenaan kepada BursaMalaysia dibuat setelah mendapat kelulusan Lembaga Pengarah. Pasukan EXCO MAS telah dibubarkan apabila Encik Ahmad Jauhari Yahya dilantik sebagai Ketua Pengawai Eksekutif Kumpulan pada 26 September 2012.

Setelah pembatalan pertukaran saham di antara MAS dan AirAsia diumumkan pada 2 Mei 2012, MAS telah melakukan beberapa perubahan ke atas pengurusan kanan syarikat seperti pelantikan Dr Hugh Dunleavy sebagai pemangku Pengarah Komersial berkuat kuasa 1 Jun 2012 dan pelantikan Encik Azhari Dahlan sebagai Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif MAS Aerospace Engineering (MAE) pada 1 Februari 2012. Segala keputusan yang dibuat adalah mengikut prosedur dan polisi syarikat.

 Tuan Yang di-Pertua,

Penjenamaan semula produk/perkhidmatan merupakan salah satu strategi dalam Pelan Pemulihan MAS bagi memastikan MAS terus kekal bersaing dalam pasaran yang kompetitif. Oleh itu, Lembaga Pengarah MAS pada 22 Mei 2012 telah bersetuju supaya MAS memperkenalkan logo baru eksklusif untuk pesawat Airbus A380 yang merupakan New Flagship Aircraft. Warna logo MAS bagi pesawat berkenaan ditukar kepada biru untuk memberi kelainan serta kelihatan moden dan kontemporari sebagai inisiatif untuk menarik semula penumpang-penumpangnya. Logo eksklusif ini juga bertujuan bagi memperingati pelancaran pesawat super jumbo milik MAS yang mula beroperasi pada 1 Julai 2012. Pesawat-pesawat lain masih mengekalkan logo korporat dengan warna merah dan biru.

Nota:

Pada masa yang material anggota-anggota EXCO MAS adalah Tan Sri Tony Fernandes (AirAsia), Datuk Kamarudin Meranun (AirAsia) dan En Mohamed Rashdan Yusuf aka Danny (mantan Deputy Group CEO MAS).

    Its not surprising at all that this ex EXCOs of MAS had made joint decision’s to plunder the tax payer money by sponsoring the on the bottom list football team that belong to the pariah. Clearly a conflict of interest decision’s, but who cares, its not his grand father money any way.

    This is not just ones, so many times has been exposed here in this blog before. So many decisions were made during their tenure as EXCO, so as to benefit AA and to cripple MAS and make it less competitive and suffer for a long time to come i.e. poison pills to make MAS sick.

    It did not stop here when this EXCO leave’s MAS, they are leaving behind a tak tahu malu “parasite” to continue with the plundering of our national airlines. This very dangerous “parasite” the bo(otak) head Azhari “mission’s” is not complete yet, that why he is still hanging to his position till now since the day he was parachuted by the pariah during the share suap.

    Apart from few multi billion ringgits engineering contract he is fiddling now, he is also in the midst of preparing to save his pariah axx… hole. This next year alone, 50% of AA total fleet i.e. about 30 aircraft of AA (A320) is due for heavy maintenance (HMV) checks.

    HMV is due every 5-6 years of aircraft life in services, if we are to look into all of AA A320 that is currently in service, about 30 aircraft will be due for HMV. Please surf for AA fleet info – http://www.planespotters.net/Airline/AirAsia)

    With this numbers due, where on earth will the pariah send his A320 for HMV? ST Aero, Singapore won’t be able to do it, SAE, Subang does not have enough hangar space or manpower.

    This is one of the reason this tak tahu malu bo(otak) still around in MAS Engineering. Now MAS Engineering commercial office almost unmanned so all marketing activities suspended, bo (otak) head Azhari is chasing away all third party customers. The Indon, Chinese, Aussie airlines have all been chased out, even MAS own FireFly ATR’s chased out to SAE to do their maintenance. The strategy is simple, no more third party work, less job for engineering, hangar space being under utilized (apart from EOL and MAS aircraft).

    With no work insight or in the pipeline, faking to save MAS Engineering from going under, this bo(otak) head Azhari will become a hero by bringing HMV maintenance work from AA !!! Since bo(otak) is the one who will call the shots, how much will MAS Engineering charge? Will it be on market price (USD 42 per man hour) or bo(otak) will charges peanuts to AA? Hope it wont be another AA – MAB saga on the airport charges.

    What ever is it, the Pariah axxx.. is saved by bo(otak) head. With an approximate cost of USD 2 million per HMV per A320, it will cost AA a whooping MYR 180 million next year with many more millions of revenue loss due to grounding of half of AA fleet unless MAS is almost exclusively used by, bo (otak) head Azhari to save AA from its downfall (severe disruption of AA flights and loss of customers confidence due grounding of 50% of their fleet).

    9-8-2011 until cancellation (reverse) transactions on 2-5-2012 Tony used this time to get malaysian airlines more business . This sounds patriotic.

    is it true TONY got MAS to pay millions of GBP to sponsor his very own QPR team?

    TONYS reasoning was MAS advertised on the uniforms of his QPR team. This incited many travellers to fly MAS airlines and MAS sales increased immediately.

    TONY TONY any one with any sense can tell that this is a lie.

    If it isnt a lie then the truth is TONY is not patriotic enough. Nothing short of a hungry capitalist

    If you were patriotic enough then you may have suggested MAS to advertise on Tshirts of ManU or Arsenal or other much better teams for BETTER MAS sales revenues.

    Any ways wasnt TONYS workout of share swapper gangnam style and getting QPR paid gangnam style a conflict of interest ?
