Herr Mueller's medicine was too strong for the entrenched and politically connected cliques. The decline continues.

Even without the political influence, it would have been impossible for MAS to have had a chance, unless it was allowed to go bankrupt to get out of all the contracts they were in... Even then, it would have been difficult as Khazanah had a stake in many of those contacts MAS had contracts in that were unfavorable to say the least... So you add that with the politics and national pride, Mueller was destined to fail from the beginning...

I thought that MAS did go bankrupt and could terminate all its contracts.
But I am not expert of Malaysian laws.
Could anyone explain what happened in terms of legal restructuring?

The discounted D tickets are back for ex-SIN & ex-BKK.

ex-BKK fares are much more fair.

Did Mueller's departure bring these fares back?
