“What is embarrassing and unfortunate is the hypocrisy, the pretense, the play acting that all is well when it is not – and the barbaric desire to position and indulge in UN-necessities like the proposed uniform make over for the airlines!
Consumerist: MAS Policymakers & Misplaced Priorities?
To deny that MAS in its present form and operations is a pale shadow of what was is not unfair comment!
To claim that morons, idiots, and fools sitting in well paid positions making decisions have leant nothing from the recent tragedies of MH370 and MH17 and the layoff of dedicated, passionate, hardworking and sacrificing front liners of Pilots, flight crew who made this brand is again not unfair comment!
The “layoff” of trained pilots and the selling off of our fleet of 777s was also a foolish act!
What is embarrassing and unfortunate is the hypocrisy, the pretense, the play acting that all is well when it is not – and the barbaric desire to position and indulge in UN-necessities like the proposed uniform make over for the airlines!
The makeover and huge amount spent for this rather idiotic and silly endeavors is going to re-position MAS to its glory days?
Gosh, we are surrounded by morons and idiots and it never ends!
I am advised that I am not alone in my comments as the National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (NUFAM) has criticized Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) for announcing that it will have a uniform makeover for its staff, as well!
In a statement issued today, NUFAM is reported to have stated that “the change in uniform would be a huge waste of money that the company could use in the future.”
And I sincerely ask with my British trained legal mind – seriously why the rather blind and callous haste in changing MAB’s image?
Yes, why waste millions on new uniforms when the current uniforms have become a badge and image that is known worldwide!
Whose stupid idea is this?
And what is in the brand?
Should we not be addressing the many internal weaknesses that has crashed what was once a brand millions of consumers looked up to?
A team who won countless awards and against great other competing brands in air travel?
Should not the vision be to address the rot in the system, to replace deadwood self-serving policymakers in MAB?
Should MAB not be addressing the financial compensation to the 6,000 staff fired last year in a downsizing exercise, who have yet to be compensated?
Seriously MAB – this uniform makeover is the silver bullet to all woes within this brand?
Embarrassingly, MAS is today more like a low cost carrier rather than what she was once!
Even an unknown of yester-years – Turkish Airlines is making headway and challenging leading brands and headwind challenges from the likes of QATAR AIRWAYS, SINGAPORE AIRLINES, CATHAY PACIFIC AIRWAYS, TURKISH AIRLINES. EMIRATES and ETIHAD AIRWAYS!
They are all maintaining their positions, making strategic inroads, extending routes and upgrading and MAB cutting down, giving up destinations to our competitors and going back in time – in using 747s not that is not a great ride, and wasting monies that could be used elsewhere and for a more critical function?
But this is what we get when the nation’s resources and assets are allowed to be put in the hands of idiots and morons?
Prime Minister sir, please do intervene and as I cried out months ago to you sir, – please replace the present community of idiots running this airlines!
I offer myself to assist in its rebuilding, re-branding and re-positioning as a national service too in their place!
