Aer Lingus CEO to head new Malaysia Airlines
Best of luck to him..this is surely an uphill battle especially from trying to keep his bosses (aka as all the different ministers) happy while trying to cut cost. I do hope he will not take the route like what he has turned Aer Lingus into (while making money not what I see as a traditional airline - I avoid it like anything due to it being a pseudo LCC).
Hopefully he will be able to bring the old charms and service of the people - which I believe is what makes an airline - and cut out all the ridiculous contracts which I understand valid for more than 10 years or more.
Wonder if he will pull the Firefly brand to fly all regional or domestic routes? This in my opinion might be a good move since I guess the cost will be low here and maybe even make it a sort of Oneworld subsidiary partner (like what Niki is to Air Berlin).
Guess will have to wait until next year to tell.
Thanks, I guess only time will tell what Mr. Muller will acheive with Malaysia Airlines, regarding Aer Lingus, it's true, it's a near LCC, but it makes money and as we all know, a healthy airline is good for employees and passengers alike. Cheers.
Appointment of 'white man' Mueller causes Malaysian storm
Critics call on government to scrap appointment of outgoing Aer Lingus chief executive Christoph Mueller
I hope that he has a golden parachute clause in his contract.
While this would be good for him, I guess this woud even more outrage, at least in Malaysia. There's growing pressure to appoint an "Malaysian national" for the CEO post. We will see how this new "saga" unfolds in the future and how Malaysia Airlines does recover / evolve from their recent woes.
