Don't Victimize The Poor Passenger

MAS gets guidelines on fare increases - The Star, 19th Sept 2006

  • Suhaili had pointed out that the fares between Labuan and several destinations like Kota Kinabalu and Kuala Lumpur had gone up by 100%.
  • AirAsia had decided to stop the route without informing the ministry in advance, he said, adding that it was allowed to do so because it was a private company. However, he said it should not forget its social obligations especially in rural and interior areas.
The air traffic system is a mess! With Air Asia comes into play, more regulations are needed, especially on pricing and coverage aspect. I do not see a conflict when multiple budget airlines are servicing similar routes from Singapore, so why are we in such a mess with only MAS and Air Asia. Is it because MAS is too comfortable with the monopoly? Or Air Asia that is too competitive for MAS?

Don't victimize the poor passenger. Can someone please regulate this?!
