A Tweet from Tony

Monday, 03 Jun, 2009 0

KUALA LUMPUR – AirAsia group chief executive Tony Fernandes has assured his followers that his health is okay.

Fernandes fainted at KL’s Low Cost Carrier Terminal on Monday evening after attending AirAsia’s Penang-Singapore inaugural flight celebration earlier in the day.

Writing on Twitter, Fernandes assured those concerned for his health: “Am fine. Resting at home as the doc ordered. Everything’s okay and am just exhausted.”

While he’s taking time out, the AirAsia CEO might want to run his eye over recent comments by Ryanair budget airline boss, Michael O’Leary.

Undaunted by Ryanair’s pre-tax loss of 180.4m euros in the 12 months to the end of March, O’Leary predicted, “In the coming winter, there will be a bloodbath in the industry.

“We will hopefully cause most of that and the losers will be BA, easyJet and other high-fare airlines,” he said.

O’Leary is still looking at the on-board lavatories as a source of extra revenue although he has discounted asking passengers to pay to use them.

However, he added, “If we can get rid of two of the three toilets on a 737, we can add an extra six seats.”

Hopefully, not in the toilets…
