Malaysia Airlines in administration, assures no disruption to flights
I have flights this coming Friday and returning on Monday. But I suspect a lot of things will change.
Their press release states that "all schedules will be adhered to".
Wishing you safe flights/travels ahead @WilliamQ and hopefully no disruptions. Cheers.
Potential sacking of 20K employees at MH...
20K? It's worse enough that I read earlier reports of potential job losses at MH in the region of 5/6K. Overall, this doesn't sound good at all, at least not for the employees of this proud airline.
Oops. To clarify, terminating 20K contracts and rehiring 12K of them under new conditions.
I also wonder about MH's future in Oneworld...
So, around 12.000 will be rehired, but at weaker conditions and on probably lower pay as well / or more working hours, same pay contracts / more part-time contracts. Still, doesn't sound good. We enjoy MH, it's a wonderful airline actually, but we equally understand there's a certain need to streamline operations, it's all about their survival now, especially in the face the "low-cost" operators eating MH's margins and any profit possibilities. Mr. Muller and Kasanah have their teeth "cut out", I sincerely hope that MH will manage to survive, to re-energize and yes, that they keep all their schedules/flight bookings made by passengers intact.
Alliance memberships cost a lot of money, of course they can also bring a lot of benefits, but as an airline which wants/needs to survive, such equations might be thrown out "of the window" when their Oneworld membership doesn't provide for the benefits/advantages they've hoped for in the first place.
