Things aren’t going particularly well for Malaysia Airlines this year and the company, instead of achieving and flying high in the sky, quite frequently they had to fall hard on the ground (literally speaking). And as in compensation, they did have to pay quite a huge amount to the families of the victim as well.
Well, the victims have perhaps changed this time but it’s surprising that whoever related to Malaysia Airlines, isn’t facing the best of times. Before it were the passengers and this time it’s about the workers. According to our sources, Malaysia Airlines will cut 6,000 workers as part of a $1.9 billion overhaul announced Friday to revive its damaged brand after being hit by double passenger jet disasters.
The twin disasters have almost crippled the company and Malaysia Airlines are running at loss now. A loss of nearly 2 million US dollars has been reported PER DAY and as a result, downsizing of staffs have already been underway.
According to statistics, should the airlines start downsizing its staff members, it shall represent about 30 percent of its current workforce of 20,000. Even the CEO of the company has been fired and looks like a search for a new CEO is underway.
But there is no explicit move to change the airline’s name, and truth be told, it is very much necessary that the airlines take up some measures for re branding since it has been highly recommended by some of the most branding experts all over the world.
