Malaysia Airlines: “In addition, the economy in Europe and North America are still weak while the unrest in the Middle East will fuel a steep rise in fuel prices. Competition is also expected to intensify. Over the next few years, we will be growing our network. With the new aircraft coming into the system, especially with the A380 in 2012, we expect to see more capacity increases as well,” Sri Azmil Zahruddin, Managing Director and CEO.
