Malaysia Airlines New Scam

Recently MAS has got a new idea to cheat all the passengers. Last Thursday when i was on my way to KK. My flight was 9am and the boarding time was 830am. I ask the counter if there is going to be any delay, they said NO! So that's very good.

I went into the waiting hall as usual. then at around 830am i went to the gate and hope can get on to the plane and rest. but when i get to the gate, suddenly there is an announcement saying the flight is delay to 940am. So i think 40min should b fine.

at 940am they announced and ask everyone to board the aircraft. so everyone just happily Q up and get to their seat. normally i will get into the flight and get comfortable and try to get some sleep. i closed my eyes and try to rest. after a while when i opened my eyes, to my surprise, i am still at the same location. no movement at all. then i looked at my watch, it's already 1015am. i was like "WTF?!?" 1030am only the flight started to move and the "safety show" begin..

See.. now if they announced the delay is until 1030am they might have to give all the passengers free meal. that is going to cost them money. By doing what they did to me, they save money and waste our time!! This is really not Professional at all. is not that i like to eat the free meal la.. just that please tell me the real flight time please. so i can plan my travelling schedule ahead..

i still wonder as a consumer or customer, is there anyway to lodge a complain for flight delay or retime? waiting in the airport is really not fun at all. This is really driving me crazy!!

How come MAS do not inform their customer about their flight delay or retime? Airasia is really doing a great job on this. I pay full price for all my MAS flights. and that is not cheap. and yet.. i do not get any sms from MAS which may only cost as low as 2cents?? sigh~~

May Be It's Time To Change??

Yesterday morning me and my wife went out for breakfast just like every other day. nothing different. may be the weather a bit nicer la.. no rain and not too hot also.. but when i started my car engine, the sound a bit different.

"Kik-Kik! Vroooooooooommmmm...."

"Kik........Kik........Kik! Vroooooooooommmm...." (........ means silence)

So I thought may be i travel too much until the car battery also weak.. need to charge abit la.. so after breakfast i took my car for a ride. i drove all the way to Bako! yeah~~~ BAKO!! road damn straight and also not many car there.. so u know what i can do la.. hehehe...

when i arrived at that straight road, i turn off the aircon because this will "jiak tien", wind down the windows abit.. turn off the radio then I just "chiong" to my red stallion's limit la.. hehe... so long i din bring my red stallion go for a spin liaw.. i seriously cant remember the last time we went out for a secret date without my wife liaw.. so long that after chiong for a while my palm started to sweat la.. hehe.. but it's good for my heart once in a while.. hahaha...

P/S: Please do not try this at home or any other place!! Because only Highly trained Professional Driver like me can do that.. hehe..

after if i'm not mistaken about 4 laps, i slow down and park my car by the road side to call one of my customer.. telling him that i will be late.. (hehe.. this is what everyone must learn ok? do not use handphone while driving...) during the phone call i do not know why my hand so itchy go and turn off the car's engine.

Guess what? my red Stallion refuse to wake up liaw.. i am some where near Kampung Gobielt.. that is where i normally go fishing la.. but it's very far from town. suddenly i think of my "car pusher".. too bad during that day he is not around.. He is in Miri.. where is he when u need him the most!! hahaha... (Sam is my car pusher.. last time my car died also he help me to push!!)

Well like i said.. there is not many cars around that area.. so no 1 really will stop down and help me push my car la.. so i have no choice but to call the mechanic to come and have a look at my car.. really pai se la.. i'm so far from town la..

While waiting.. i just took some pictures of my fainted Red Stallion.. Wonder how much she will worth today la.. still looking great rite?? hehe... no photoshop 1 ok??

after the mechanic replace a brand new battery, she is up and kicking again!! i scared she suddenly merajuk again, so i drove her to the workshop for service la.. Total cost me RM210.

Guys.. make sure u treat ur girl.. i mean car right ok? if she merajuk, i tell u.. it's gonna cost the same amount as ur girl friend ok? life is not easy for guys la..

Hmmmm.... suddenly my smart brain come out with this theory..

"If car is equal to girl friend... the girl friend is also a Liability!!"

Hahaha.... have a nice week ahead la!! Cheers..

What is the difference??

For my this new job, i get to travel a lot. This is really good and bad thing for me la.. I really love to travel. I like to see many different thing and also experience different thing. SO far, now i have almost cover the whole Sabah only Sandakan left. Yeah~~ I think a Sabahan also do not dare to say that la.. hehe.. Sarawak will be the next la.. since i am based in Kuching and take care of the whole Sarawak Hospitals. And not forgetting Brunei and Labuan..

But now that i am married, i still love to travel just that travelling alone and leave her alone back home just do not feel so right for me. How i wish my wife can follow me around and also share n experience the same thing that i encounter. But this is not possible la with her current job position and also she is pregnant.. (make me more difficult.. leaving both mummy and baby behind..)

Now i go to airport more than i go to eat Kam Pua la. Sigh~ But the good thing is i get to fly with Malaysia Airlines. At the beginning, i thought MAS should be great la. More space, no need to fight with other people for seat, got food to eat, more relaxing, not much delay.... BUT!!!! all that is not true.. sigh~~ Mayb the fighting for seat part only la..

I have encounter many many time flight delay by MAS. They normally do not give me any reason why the flight is delayed. I asked them what happen? they just say technical problem. Weather is bad (outside is a sunny day).. I also blur la.. But the funny thing is.. MAS they do not use the word Delay.. They say RETIME!!

Can someone please tell me what is the different? I am wondering if i can ask for compensation for my time loss. Time wasted waiting in Airport.. If we all agree that Time = Money. So my time wasted in airport, they should compensate me with something la.. sigh~~ I am really mad have to wait in the airport alone for HOURS~~ waiting for my flight..

They should improve their system la. Al least AirAsia will sms u and tell u ahead of time that the flight is retimed or cancelled! So we do not have to wait in the airport like stupid fella la.. Waiting in airport is really not comfortable as all. If they have nice sofa and cossy environment then different story la. Really do not know what they are thinking and flying MAS is not cheap. They should have enough money to invest in 1 "cell phone" to sms all the customers la.. really disappointed la.

I am still not very sure what is the difference between Flight Delay and Flight Retime.
