    DCA, what have you got say about the report? To allow AirAsia X Sdn Bhd at that time to take over the AOC and then flying long haul routes was most shocking.

    Thanks to the 2 ‘mutts’ in the leadership

    of be end, mat madey and dolah-mat-layu

    the members of the umno party [mat dungus]

    and their

    apparatchiks who are mat-me-no-spik -and –

    no-write-inglis can allow this kind of

    mismangement to take place over a long

    period of time.


    Only a body of mat-dungus in the party machine

    could have

    allowed madey and dolah

    to skim the country’s coffers with blatant

    disregard for accountablity or give value

    to the natiopn’s hard-earned wealth.

    To have allowed dolah to be sitting

    in MAS as advisor is to let a cat

    looking after the fish on the dinner table.

    This does not reflect well on be-end who

    is asking for an extension to rule the countyry.

    Only after that bee-end is replaced , can damages

    to all national asset be assessed.

      What nonsense are you talking about hanana? All these happened during Pak Lah’s time, not Mahathir’s. You are at the wrong site dear.. Go and express yourself at malaysiakini or similar anti establishment sites. We are opining technical irregularities of an airline.

    58 parts have been cannibalized! That was the standard of safety for AirAsia. was it normal for an airline to cannibalize so many parts for spare parts and there were so many aircraft grounded for similar purposes? This aircraft has been grounded for so may months without replacement of the cannibalized parts. This must be the business model of AirAsia!

    If the aircraft have not been maintained according to the regulation at that time, I believe the present fleet of AirAsia X had to be in a similar situation. Best of luck to the passengers of AirAsia X.
