Round 1 – Tony vs Idris

Travel Info May 15th, 2008

AirAsia vs Malaysia Airlines
Who will win? I don’t care because it doesn’t matter who will win the debates as long as the consumers come out as the winner? In the first place, the idea of having the debate should not even come out.

On the red side, they claimed the blue side is being heavily subsidised and having protection by the government on certain lucrative routes. On the blue side, they claimed the red side is also being subsidised by the government. But almost every citizens of Malaysia knows what is currently happening with both sides. There are no need for both sides to point finger at each other but fight and focus with what you have and show to us what is your capabilities.

KUALA LUMPUR: The battle between the two local carriers AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines has turned up a notch after waging their fare wars.
Yesterday, AirAsia called on Malaysia Airlines to keep the competition fair and healthy and “not to take toys from its playground.”
Its group chief executive officer Datuk Tony Fernandes also questioned yesterday why MAS was not promoting zero fares for non-AirAsia routes such as London and Sydney, to give more options to customers.
He also challenged MAS managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Idris Jala to publicly deny or accept allegations that subsidies for international flights were used to promote domestic low-fare promotions.

EVERYDAY Low Fares From Malaysia Airlines

Travel News May 5th, 2008

Everyday Low Fares

Dear Malaysians,

I have an important announcement from Malaysia Airlines.

Everyday, and all around us, we are all feeling the pinch of how everything is getting expensive. We, at Malaysia Airlines, have decided that it is time we lowered our fares so that Malaysians can continue to travel.

We recently declared that Malaysia Airlines is transforming into a World’s Five Star Value Carrier and we promised that you will be able to enjoy 5 Star Service at a low price. Many people thought it would be impossible. Well, not anymore! Today we are ready to deliver on that promise.

LCCs operate by keeping their costs really low and passing some of these savings to passengers. But this means that passengers have to accept some sacrifices.

We believe there is a way for passengers to enjoy low fares and Malaysian Hospitality.

For the first time in our history, Malaysia Airlines is offering Everyday Low Fares. From the 5 th of May, we will offer zero fares on all our routes within Malaysia. Later we will offer very low fares on our regional routes within ASEAN. We have put aside up to 30 per cent of our seats for these special Everyday Low Fares.

To get these special fares, you only need to take 3 steps:

Step 1: Go to our website at malaysiaairlines.com as these fares are only available via the internet.

Step 2: You must buy the ticket at least 30 days before flight departure.

Step 3: Remember these tickets are non-refundable and the flight dates cannot be changed.

What we are now offering gives everyone a win-win situation. It helps us to meet our business objectives. And it provides our customers an excellent deal – you get to enjoy the best of both worlds – really low prices plus our 5 Star services – our food and beverages, entertainment, luggage allowances and other benefits that come with traveling on Malaysia Airlines.

I would like to personally invite you to click on malaysiaairlines.com

Yours sincerely,


Dato’ Sri Idris Jala
Managing Director/CEO
