Going back to basics. They are still arguing if the MAS-Air Asia deal would be good for the national carrier (read Where's the beef for MAS?) or if it will benefit Tony Fernandes full stop.
But there is 1SIMPLE question that journos can ask and which the new MAS board can/must answer:
Will MAS change its procurement policy?
I am no Warren Buffet, but I do know if you can't manage your cost, in the long run you will go down. It doesn't matter if you have Tony Fernandes, Steve Jobs or Bill Gates on the board, you won't be making a dime if you have to pay RM10 for an egg that costs 50 sen.
Will the new MAS board call in the cops (the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) or will they wait another years down the road for our golden boys at Khazanah Nasional to come up with yet another roadmap for MAS?
