A UNION has told Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff to stop worrying about cabin crew attire, and instead, think of ways to help them overcome the impact of Covid-19 on the aviation industry.

National Union of Flight Attendants (Nufam) president Ismail Nasaruddin said there are several matters concerning airline staff that the new government should prioritise, especially with regard to their well-being over the past two months.

  • Unfortunately these are cold facts of how those religious right wing politicians focus only upon moral policing. It is prevalent all over the world by the same type of politicians. Sad that we lost the opportunity to reach great heights as a nation. The nonmalays have to slowly accept the fact that they will always face great resistance to be accepted as equals on the Malaysian stage, and probably have to find greener and fairer pastures elsewhere, without these politically fearful polemics. Disheartening.

  • Last time Malaysia launched a halal airline in 3016 it went bust in six months cos of cash flow issue . Ie not enough bums on seat! Looks like our erstwhile PAS deputy minister wants to put the final nail into MAS coffin.
