AirAsia pilot suspended!


Kudos! AirAsia X, the long-haul arm of budget carrier AirAsia, has suspended a pilot for comments he made online on the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, pending a domestic inquiry.

"AirAsia X senior first officer has been suspended pending investigation as company policies were broken in Facebook posting," group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said in a tweet last night.

Air Asia X chief executive officer Azran Rani Osman added that the first officer contravened a "specific directive" not to publicly comment on the ongoing search.

"(There is a) specific directive to our crew on public comments on MH370. (There is a) duty of care not to be hurtful," he wrote in response to Fernandes' tweet.

When contacted, Air Asia X said that it would not be releasing any further details on the matter.

The AirAsia top guns' comments come as several blogs circulated a picture of an AirAsia X pilot's Facebook post where he criticised the government for declaring that MH370 fell into the Indian Ocean.

I believe he's not the only one to be investigated. There are others...

As the Malay saying goes - "berani buat, berani tanggung!"

yessir,

there are many more, not the pilot alone. there are politicians, public servants and laymen who made fun of the incident, mocking at it as if it was well-planned by the govt.

nab them all!

Sure, there is no concrete proof yet but MH370 cannot be still in the air and there is no evidence of it having landed at an airfield anywhere or crash landed on the ocean surface with an orderly evacuation into life rafts.

Whether it crashed into the sea or crashed onto lane, either way, the passengers and crew are most likely dead, however hard that may be to accept.

However, unless this First Officer believes that the plane landed safely at the U.S. military base at Diego Garcia, then please say so.

What gives an employer the power to issue a directive prohibiting his employees from commenting on a matter in the public domain -- especially when it has nothing to do with his job function? As far as I know an employer can only issue an order if it relates to the employee's job
Have employers now become censors for other companies (AirAsia for MAS) and the authorities (the Malaysian government)?
If AirASia can do this, no employee can voice an opinion not to the liking of the employer. Do we want that?
