Dear Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Is it true that you’re keeping money belonging to others? 🤔

..

AN intriguing yet insightful open letter on the bad habit of owing people money by a former AirAsia employee to Malaysia’s low-cost aviation mogul Tan Sri Tony Fernandes has been making its rounds in the social media of late.

The open letter, which originated from a Facebook rambling by Dr Thirunavukkarasu Karasu (TK), strikes the chord as “many people (as in AirAsia passengers) are still texting ME (sic) – asking for their refunds” even seven years after TK has left the budget carrier.

“Anyway, I hear you. And I’m pretty pissed off myself. Personally, I don’t see any difference between politicians putting their hands inside the cookie jar, and businessmen keeping money belonging to other people – for a service they DIDN’T deliver!” the Penangite pointed out in his FB posting dated Feb 16.

“Because from a moral point, it boils down to the same thing – you’re keeping what is NOT yours! Ask any four-year old what that is and they’ll tell you it’s called STEALING.”

Addressing Fernandes as “dude” and “bro”, TK who is a pilot by profession, urged the CEO of Capital A Bhd to “just pay back the effing money”.

“Please bro, don’t keep what isn’t yours (sic). Repay it. That’s what wins respect. That’s what makes people support your earnest effort to get up to the sky again. Rebranding it with another cosmetic change is kinda (sic) pathetic – akin to painting a plane blue and back to red.”

Considering himself “more unlucky” than Fernandes who enjoyed the privilege of an Eton (College) education and tycoon Sir Richard Branson’s internship, TK said he still did the honourable deed of paying all his study loans despite Malaysia being hit by a currency crisis soon after his graduation.

“Despite that, I didn’t wallow about being broke or jobless. Drove a teksi sapu (illegal taxi) in Penang (no Grab in 1998), worked as a security guard and bartending in nightclubs. No Tesla car to parade, bro,” recalled TK.

“But still, guess what’s the first thing I did? I paid my debt – even though Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) never chased me for it! And from the date of this letter, you know I paid off my debt while I was still poor.”

More cynically, TK said he also re-paid AirAsia’s RM141,000 training bill (supposedly for his pilot training).

“Not just the salary deduction for nine years, I also gave your HR (human resources department) a cheque for the balance RM 17,000 after I resigned in 2015 – which is why you (Fernandes) asked me to come back in 2016, isn’t?” he asked.

“Certainly didn’t abuse your sponsorship and then run off to Emirates/Qatar (Airways) like so many others, did I?”

Tony Fernandes is asking to Malaysians to help him keep Air Asia afloat by not seeking refunds. His reason is, he wants to keep the staffs at Air Asia.

Here are some fun facts:

Tony Fernandes is worth RM3.2 billion as of 2018.

He earned RM23.5 million in 2018 (on paper) as AA CEO.

Air Asia earned RM1.6 billion in 2018, RM1.5 billion in 2017 and RM1.7 billion in 2016.

He campaigned for Najib BN in 2018.

Here’s the billionaire and millionaires telling normal Malaysians, “please spare us some money to save Air Asia”.

But why don’t these billionaires and millionaires donate some of their money to help their own staffs who helped built Air Asia’s success??

Tony can donate RM1 billion from his RM3.2 billion.

Air Asia can donate another RM1 billion which is equivalent to less than a year’s profit.

Together they have RM2 billion.

Do the math. Tony Fernandes plus Air Asia’s RM2 billion donation is enough to pay the entire Air Asia Group’s 20,000 staffs as much as RM10,000 per month for 10 consecutive months.

But of course, the billionaire and millionaires at the top of Air Asia don’t want to. They rather squeeze their own staffs and squeeze ordinary Malaysians while they keep their millions and billions.
