The Telegraph reports:

Malaysia Airlines is likely to change its name as part of a radical overhaul in the wake of the death of 298 passengers in a missile attack on a flight over Ukraine.

The Malaysian flag carrier, majority-owned by the government, will also seek new investors to rebuild its business after two major tragedies within six months.

Work has begun on a strategic review that will restructure the airline’s routes and expand ousourcing to increase profitability.

Sources said additional private investment for the airline could come from rival aviation groups.

At the same time, Malaysia Airlines is also calling for a single global body to monitor threats and decide where civilian aircraft are allowed to fly.

Does it really make any sense to change the company's name?

Well Valujet merged with and changed its name to Airtran after having that accident had they not done it they most likely would have shut down. So sometimes it makes sense

MAS to cut 6,000 employees, spend RM6billion on its restructuring exercise

MAS restructuring deemed the largest exercise - analysts
Astro Awani | Updated: August 29, 2014
(First published on: August 29, 2014 15:48 MYT)




KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Airlines System Bhd (MAS) has requested for a suspension in the trading of its shares on Bursa Malaysia's Main Market from 9am to 5pm today, pending a restructuring announcement at a press conference at 3pm today.

The national carrier said its major shareholder, Khazanah Nasional Bhd, would make an announcement in relation to the details of a proposed restructuring of the airline.

Analysts view the restructuring as one-of-its-kind ever seen in history of restructuring in the country.

Earlier, Astro Awani reported the pre-suspension price for MAS was 24 sen and the company’s share price had declined as much as 23 percent this year.

If the proposal takes shape, it will create a transaction worth almost RM1.38 billion. Khazanah will also acquire the shares that is doesn’t own in MAS at 27 sen per share.

Analysts expect Khazanah to adopt staff resizing, reduce two non-profitable routes to China and Europe and change in top management positions.

Earlier, MAS reported a net loss of RM307.04 million in its second quarter and said its earnings in the second half will be affected by lower passenger bookings after MH370 and MH17 tragedies.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) today announced a bimodal agreement with TGVAIR, a high-speed rail network that is operated by SNCF, France's national state-owned railway company.

The agreement would allow MAS to commercialise a journey from start to finish including a TGV journey between a province train station and the Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport TGV station as well as a connecting flight on MAS at CDG Airport, MAS said in a statement.

The national carrier said passengers based in the French provinces and travelling on MAS can now enjoy this new train/flight bimodal service departing from 19 TGV train stations.

The service will include check-in from the start of the journey to the final destination, it said.

The new service is available to MAS passengers from TGV train stations namely Aix-en-Provence TGV, Angers-St-Laud, Avignon TGV, Bordeaux St Jean, Champagne-Ardenne TGV, Le Mans, Lille, Lorraine TGV, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Nantes, Nξmes, Poitiers, Rennes, St-Pierre-des-Corps, Strasbourg, Toulon and Valence TGV.

When arriving to their departure at SNCF TGV train station, MAS passengers can check-in to their final destination, including on their MAS connecting flight at the CDG Airport.

"This way, they are already pre-checked in when arriving at the CDG Airport," it said.

MAS said the service offers numerous advantages to MAS passengers in terms of simplicity, flexibility, serenity, time saving, and better value.

MAS said passengers do not need to purchase their flight tickets and TGV train tickets separately.

Passengers travelling from the provinces to Kuala Lumpur and beyond can use a single ticket for their journeys from their departure train station to CDG Airport TGV station, and from CDG Airport to Kuala Lumpur on MAS flights.

Once in Kuala Lumpur, they can continue they journey to any destination in the airlines’ extensive network, it said.

The agreement between MAS and TGVAIR covers 19 cities, spanning the major part of the French territory.

"Regardless of the departure province, there is always a possibility of immediate boarding at a nearby train station," it said.

Passengers can buy a fare from start to finish, involving a single transport contract, and if they miss their flight or their train because one or the other is delayed, they will be supported, it said.

Besides that, passengers do not need to book separately and coordinate both parts of the trip.

The air/railway ticket is not only more practical, it is also easily modified if necessary, it said.

MAS added that it was much easier and cheaper to choose the combined MAS/ SNCF ticket than to purchase a flight ticket and train ticket separately.-- Bernama

Another MH story...


Flight MH135 pulls emergency landing for Aussie in labour
The Malaysian Inside | 24 October 2014
http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/m...ssie-in-labour

Malaysia Airlines today did the country proud when flight MH135 made an emergency landing in Bali after an Australian passenger went into labour.

The Australian Associated Press (AAP) reported Bali's Ngurah Rai airport managers Angkasa Pura and Herry A. Y. Sikado as saying that flight MH135 from Kuala Lumpur to Brisbane requested a priority landing today as the pregnant woman was "about to give birth".



Flight MH135 performed an emergency landing in Bali for an Australian woman who went into labour. – The Malaysian Insider pic, October 24, 2014.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.
