Malaysia Airlines should cancel Airbus A380 purchase - union official
"It will bleed the finances of Malaysia Airlines further if we buy the A380s. The purchase will be a financial burden to the carrier," Alias Aziz, president of the Malaysian Airlines Employees Union told Agence France-Presse.
"But it is disappointing that they have not replied," he said.
"If our finance is strong, I think it is alright to acquire the A380s. But at the moment, since we face a cash problem, the purchase will not help in our recovery plan," he said.
"We are very disappointed with this further delay and are currently awaiting a clear delivery plan from Airbus," the carrier said in a statement yesterday.
It said it will also consider and assess all available alternatives and options.
