Were the recent decisions made by the current AirAsia and AirAsia X Bhd “friendly” MAS management to cancel Firefly routes From JB to KK and Kuching in September 2011 and MAS route from KL to Bandung in October 2011 made in the best interests of MAS?

“We put in a lot of effort and money developing markets which AirAsia X now covets. When AirAsia first talked about doing international routes, it was to take over those Malaysia Airlines had vacated to save costs to address the company’s severe financial crisis. Then it changed to AirAsia X developing three new destinations before it comes to offer flights on existing Malaysia Airlines routes. And now … the goal posts keep moving. Even Messi will have trouble scoring in this situation.“, said Tan Sri Dr Munir Majid, the then Chairman of MAS, in an interview with the Star on 31-4-2011 before his retirement.
