Andrea Loh and Jonathan Yabut deserved the final spot in The Apprentice Asia. It was definitely a win-win final for Tony Fernandes, and both have a bright future in the paths they have chosen in order for them to achieve their goals. Very well said words from Andrea, and I have nothing against the Singaporeans. The racist article was definitely a red flag, but I don't take it too heavily. Because I know how hospitable and kind Singapore is over the number of times I went to the island-nation. Let's put aside our differences and work towards a better future for all of humanity. :D

Are Indian passengers ready for AirAsia's 'revolutionary' low-cost model? Since he became the surprise choice of Tony Fernandes, group chief executive of AirAsia Bhd, a year ago to steer the Malaysian budget carrier's Indian venture, Mittu Chandilya has often talked about revolutionizing the country's aviation sector. As if to prove it wasn't mere bravado, Chandilya unveiled a measure of that 'revolution' last week. AirAsia India, which is due to launch on June 12, said it will charge passengers for check-in luggage. Cancelled tickets will not earn a refund. Passengers cannot eat their own food on board. Revolutionary or not, these measures are radical. AirAsia's low-cost competitors such as IndiGo, SpiceJetBSE -2.31 % and GoAir allow 15 kg of check-in luggage. Indian passengers squirm when they have to pay for anything beyond. As for refunds, GoAir, for instance, deducts Rs 1,500 as cancellation fees from a passenger ticket and returns the balance. And yes, no airline in India is yet to stop you from dig ...

Redknapp may face the sack. Harry may pay for R's misfortunes of recent late Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp could be the next casualty in an ever increasing line of Managerial departures. Rumours are suggesting that the Loftus Road club are becoming frustrated at the clubs current run of form, and Redknapp may be in a battle against time at the club. Rangers are currently fourth in the Skybet Championship, and the Hoops have lost their last four League games, with the latest one in a 1-0 defeat against London rivals Charlton Athletic, at the Valley. The defeat leaves Redknapp’s stuttering men seven points adrift of second-placed Burnley, with Saturday’s visit of Leeds to Loftus Road possibly key to deciding Redknapp’s fate. Broadsheet Newspaper, The Times, have suggested that Tony Fernandes may act quick and bring in Michael Laudrup to Loftus Road. Laudrup was recently sacked by Swansea City, after two years at the Liberty Stadium, guiding the side to a League Cup victory. The Dane was d ...
QPR want Redknapp for the long-term – Fernandes - PARIS (Reuters) - Queens Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes would like to see Harry Redknapp stay at the Championship leaders for years to come and is confident he can keep him despite interest from elsewhere. -
This is what being a "family club" is all about ! ! LIFELONG QPR fan Tony Mills will be given the red carpet treatment at Loftus Road on Sunday when the R’s take on Reading in W12. Tony, aged 52, was diagnosed with an Astrocytic tumour in the centre of his brain in March 2012. Understandably, the news hit Tony and his family hard. In recent months, Tony’s son James – a fellow R’s supporter – has made it his goal to raise enough money to fulfil his dream of taking his terminally ill dad and his son Ollie (5) to Loftus Road for what could potentially be one final time. Through the power of social media, James’ call-to-action via a personal plea on the internet saw him reach his £500 target almost immediately, but the club decided to take it one step further. With public backing from Tony Fernandes and Joey Barton, the club made contact with the Mills family and from there, ‘Tony’s Special Day’ was formed. Communication between R’s Head of Media & Communications, Ian Taylor, and James’ ...

Caterham strongly considered putting its new F1 test driver Robin Frijns into a 2014 race seat, according to team owner Tony Fernandes.
Today has been a relatively busy day so I thought I'd do a round up of today's news stories. Sauber:Sauber have signed Giedo Van Der Garde as their test and reserve driver for 2014. He's quick enough and should keep Sutil and Guittierez on their toes! Interesting not to see Sirotkin taking that position! CaterhamAs I predicted last month, today Caterham have announced Kamui Kobayashi and Marcus Ericsson. The surprise came in their third driver, Robin Frijns, The Sauber 3rd driver for most of last year. Tony Fernandes has also said that he will quit F1 if the team doesn't compete this year, he states being tired of spending lots of time and money on a team rooted to the back of the grid. Caterham certainly need some points this year! McLarenMcLaren have announced that they will not be announcing their new sponsor in their on-line car reveal on Friday, The reasons for this haven't been announced but one suspects its likely that they are a)struggling to find a new title sponsor OR b)want to time the re-brand ...

Also as reported earlier, Dutchman Robin Frijns, who worked in a similar role at Sauber last year, will be a new Caterham reser...
Published January 20, 2014 AirAsia CEO sees launch of Indian airline in March Mr Fernandes: 'To succeed in India we have to be innovative and we have to be different' [LONDON] AirAsia Bhd chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said Indian backing for his establishment of a low-cost airline in a once closed market of 1.2 billion people is "imminent", with flights slated for as soon as March. "The process is coming to a happy ending," Mr Fernandes said in an interview in London on Friday, adding that delays were inevitable given that new procedures had to be developed allowing a foreign carrier to enter India. Asia's largest discount airline will equip the new unit with 10 Airbus A320 single-aisle jets. AirAsia, based in Malaysia and with units in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, is seeking to tap a market where the number of passengers is forecast to triple to 452 million by 2020. India has loosened investment rules, spurring AirAsia and Singapore Airlines Ltd to seek to establish units in the worl ...
Great write up .well done Jordan Foster QPR must celebrate their history, not ignore it Former QPR captain Alan McDonald passed away in June 2012. QPR and Air Asia owner Tony Fernandes named one of his planes after the former defender I was lucky enough to be at the Emirates on Saturday for Arsenal’s match against Spurs in the FA Cup third round. One of the most glaringly obvious things about the stadium – which is absolutely incredible – is the constant links to and appreciation of Arsenal’s past. For instance, the Danny Fiszman bridge is adorned with posters of legends such as Liam Brady, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira. The ground itself has an image running round the outside of players linking arms with famous names like ‘Rice’ and ‘Henry’ plastered over the back of the shirts. One of the many supporters’ bars is named the 49ers in homage to the Gunners record-breaking unbeaten run. QPR are a long way away from going 49 games unbeaten, but lessons can be learnt from our north-Lond ...

In 2007 he was named as the wealthiest man in the United Kingdom of Asian descent, and Forbes named him as the sixth richest person in the world in 2011.

Did QPR owner back the wrong horse when he let McClaren leave for Derby? Tony Fernandes must be sweating a little after yesterday's results. Surely QPR have to win promotion this season or fall foul of the FFP rules. And whilst 'Arry's boys stumbled to a home defeat against Leicester, McClaren's Derby kept up their amazing charge. So how much of QPR's revival at the start of the season was down to the Wally with the Brolly? The former England man is a figure of ridicule amongst fans, but the QPR players credited him for rebuilding belief on the training field, and he has had an amazing impact at Derby since replacing Nigel Clough. And meanwhile QPR under Redknapp are stuttering. Given the money spent and the wage bill, QPR should be storming the division, but with yesterday's defeat they have now only taken 11 points from the last 7 games, and over a 46 game season that works out at 72 points, which only just qualifies you for the playoffs; and if you average out on the basis of the last 11 games, the fig ...

QPR are hoping to build a new 40,000- capacity stadium as part of an ambitious project at Old Oak in west London. Rs chairman Tony Fernandes revealed plans to move the club from Loftus Road as there is "no option of expanding" at their present home. The new stadium would be built as part of a "major regeneration" of the Old Oak area, with plans for the creation of a residential and commercial precinct larger than Canary Wharf. QPR first used Loftus Road in 1917 and a proposed move is likely to spark a backlash from some fans, but Fernandes believes the project would cement the club's place in west London.

AIRASIA INDIA ALLOWED TO IMPORT 10 AIRCRAFT'S OVER THE NEXT YEAR AirAsia India has received permission from the Ministry of Civil Aviation to import aircraft. This is seen as a step closer for the tripartite joint venture between Tata Sons, Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia and Arun Bhatia's Telestra Tradeplace to securing an air operator's permit. Persons in the know at the civil aviation ministry said the airline has been allowed to import 10 aircraft over the next year. This includes the three aircraft that came with the no-objection certificate AirAsia India received in September. The import permission is required before the Directorate General of Civil Aviation can issue an air operator's permit. DGCA officials will also evaluate AirAsia's training facilities in Malaysia later this month. One of the officials in the know said the airline is expected to bag the permit in January. "But after this, they will need to go to airport operators for slots and route clearances. So, realistically, AirAsia India ...

Beware those who fly Air Asia.!! Air Asia and Tony Fernandes: From public champion to money-grabbing witch? Written by Kenny Gan, Malaysia Chronicle AirAsia is one of Malaysia’s great success stories. From basically nothing except a few old planes serving a few domestic routes CEO Tony Fernandes has built it into the biggest budget airline in Asia with routes spanning most of Asia and reaching into Australia, NZ and Europe. He has done it without any help from the government unlike pampered bumiputra businessmen. However AirAsia’s success story has begun to falter amid charges of poor service, inflexibility, hidden charges, deceptive pricing and anti-consumer practices designed to squeeze the maximum from passengers. Whenever there is a news item on AirAsia in malaysiakini, Malaysian Insider and other online sites readers’ comments are almost wholly negative towards the airline. It is unusual for a budget airline which purports to provide affordable flying for passengers to end up on the wrong side ...

From Cumbiem Morod - Guirim to Mapusa. OLD MAPUSA REVISITED MAPUSA TOWN 1976 Around Guirim. Now, from Cumbiem Morod let's go to Mapusa! Let us visit the fish market, and the great Friday Mapusa Bazaar of once upon a time! We were lucky living so close to Mapusa town. As youngsters we often walked to the town, and in our teens commuted on bicycles. Going to Mapusa with Mom meant a great joy. The finale was a treat at 'C. DeSouza' or 'Cafe Xavier' or 'Cafe Aurora'. The attached picture is scanned from an original photographic print that was taken from the first floor of the Camara Municipal de Bardez Offices in Mapusa in 1976. The view shows the road up the steep slope of Mapusa, Altinho, proceeding towards Duler. The steep incline posed a real challenge for a cyclist to make it to the top without alighting. My bicycle had no gears. My childhood friend and class-mate Gabriel Monteiro, God bless him, and I often pedaled up the slope when we went to watch football matches in Duler. And once we got to the top ...
In recent weeks rumours have been doing the rounds that Marussia had been in talks with Williams and Sauber about merging their operations. It wasn't the first time that this kind of story had broken cover as Marussia and Caterham were known to have been in talks about merging earlier this year. Since then Marussia has leapfrogged Caterham and finished in tenth place this season so you would have thought that mergers would no longer be on its mind. Not so it seems. Mercedes' executive director Toto Wolff has revealed to Pitpass' business editor Christian Sylt that talks have indeed taken place about merging Marussia and Williams. However, in an article for the American sports service ESPN Sylt quoted Wolff saying that the talks are "getting nowhere" as they would lead to the closure of Marussia. What has Wolff got to do with the merger of Marussia and Williams you might ask. The reason he is at the centre of the discussions is that he owns a 12.2% stake in Williams. The team is floated on the Frankfurt st ...

TOP 10 BILLIONAIRES INVOLVED IN FOOTBALL Roman Abramovich (Chelsea) - $10.2 billion Source According to the 2012 Forbes list, Roman Abramovich is the 5th richest person in Russia and the 50th richest person in the entire world. He is the owner of private investment company Millhouse LLC. His takeover and subsequent investment in Chelsea has transformed their fortunes over the past decade. The club have won 11 major trophies in this period and have grown into a worldwide known club, having spent endlessly on numerous star players. John Fredriksen (Valerenga) - $11.5 billion Source John Fredriksen accumulated his riches from shipping and oil tankers. He was recognised as the richest man in Norway, but this was voided when he opted to abandon his Norwegian citizenship to become a citizen of Cyprus. He is the owner of Valerenga, who are in the top flight of Norwegian football. The club could only manage an 8th placed finish last season. Fredriksen wiped the club’s debt in 2003.

Tongue very much in cheek… “Eight years ago, I said I’ll never come to India as there are crazy guys in this – airline – business who had too much money to throw away.

India has bizarre rules for airline operations, AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes says PTI | Jul 3, 2013, 05.58PM IST New Delhi: Indicating its intentions to fly abroad very soon, proposed airline AirAsia India today trashed the "bizarre" policy of allowing carriers to operate international flights only after five years of domestic operations. "These are bizarre rules ... that you can't fly abroad before five years and 20 aircraft (fleet) ... That rule makes no sense. It is a negative for the Indian airlines. "I, as a one-plane airline in Malaysia, can fly to India. India is the only country which has such a rule," Air Asia group CEO Tony Fernandes said here. Maintaining that the Indian airline industry has "not done a good job" to explain to the government the importance of aviation for the economy, he said "it is a shame that India has lost many years. See what new airlines in the region have done. India has lost because of vested interests even though it has a lot of talent and economic activities." Asked to ...

AirAsia chief executive outlines India growth plans: AFP Asia's largest budget carrier AirAsia outlined plans on Monday to aggressively grow its Indian joint venture, including by adding 10 planes a year and focusing on flying new routes. AirAsia chief executive Tony Fernandes said more than 50 staff, including pilots and engineers, have been recruited for the new no-frills airline, which plans to start operations in India later this year. Fernandes said the new airline plans to add 10 Airbus A320s a year to its fleet, which will focus on routes in southern India, rather than Mumbai and New Delhi, before expanding elsewhere in the country. "India's aviation has not grown. There are lots of routes which have not been done and lots of airports have been under-utilised," Fernandes told reporters in Mumbai. "We will give the lowest possible fares," he added. Malaysia-based AirAsia won approval from India's foreign investment panel in March to set up the airline in a joint venture with the giant Tata Group and ...

AirAsia X float cash for debt payments and planes Malaysian long-haul carrier AirAsia X said it plans to use funds of up to US$418 million from a public listing to more than triple its Airbus fleet and add more routes to meet demand in Asia and the Pacific. The budget carrier founded by Tony Fernandes hopes to raise the proceeds in an initial public offering ahead of its July 10 debut on the Malaysian bourse, AFP reports. “The estimated amount based on the 1.45 ringgit (47 US cents) per issue share is between 1.1 billion ringgit and 1.3 billion ringgit,'' Nazir Razak, head of banking group CIMB which is running the IPO, said.

Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes has dismissed reports that he has had a row with manager Harry Redknapp. Redknapp was reported to be considering his future at QPR after Reading hijacked his bid to sign former England defender Wayne Bridge. But, speaking to Sky Sports News, Fernandes said that he and Redknapp have no problems. Fernandes said: "We have had no row at all. You know that Harry is emotional and Harry wants to get us promoted like the rest of us. "We just want to do things properly and we have learnt a lot from last season. We want players who want to play for us and we want to protect ourselves against players who may get injured or who may not be fit enough. "So, we have to find a balance of being enthusiastic and getting players in, and throwing money down the drain." He added: "Harry is passionate and you can't blame him for that. He would like to get to the Premier League as we would all like to. "We are determined to build the right culture at the club and if a player plays for ...

Harry Redknapp may quit Queens Park Rangers following row over signing Wayne Bridge 5 Jun 2013 22:30 Relegated Hoops dragging their heels over bringing new faces in, even on frees, because they can't shift their big earners Burning his Bridges? Redknapp demands final say over signings at Loftus Road Action Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has threatened to quit after a furious bust-up over transfers. QPR manager Redknapp has had massive rows with their chief executive Philip Beard, who has been left in charge of player recruitment for next season by chairman Tony Fernandes. Redknapp is desperate to bring free-agent defender Wayne Bridge to Loftus Road, and the Hoops' failure to agree a deal for the former England left-back sparked a huge behind-the-scenes argument that engulfed the club. Angry Redknapp could now walk as QPR struggle to get big earners off the books following their relegation from the Premier League, leaving them reluctant to bring in new signings - even free transfers.

AirAsia issued a very cold press statement that i think will only spark more anger and frustration among Malaysians. Tony Fernandes, you should just say sorry to the family, will conduct diligent investigation, will gather all statements from staff and passengers there, and will take stern action against the staff if proven acted inappropriately, plus some sort of compensation to the family. Defending your staff and policy is a nice gesture but its' your customers who pay your salary. For now, Air Asia has lost the battle of perception.

What are best pals and business rivals Richard Branson and Tony Fernandes up to?
Back in 2010, billionaire Sir Richard Branson and AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes made a bet. Sir Richard and Tony each wagered their Formula 1 racing teams (then Lotus Racing and Virgin Racing) would finish ahead of each other in their debut season, and that the loser would serve as a female cabin crew on the winner’s airline. Tony’s team finished two spots above Sir Richard’s in the final 2010 rankings and on May 12, 2013, Sir Branson honoured his bet, adorning make-up, a pair of high heels and freshly shaved legs. The event culminated in Sir Branson serving guests on a charity flight from Perth to Kuala Lumpur. Altogether the charity event raised an estimated $200,000 AUD for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. A great cause and memorable experience for all of those onboard.

BRANSON VIRGIN AIRLINES CHAIRMAN STEPS OUT IN A SKIRT AND RED LIPSTICKThe man behind Virgin Atlantic ditched his usual getup over the weekend, in exchange for an AirAsia X stewardess uniform as he fulfilled a friendly wager with AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes. Special flight, D7237 flying from Perth to Kuala Lumpur departed Australia Sunday morning, with Sir Richard Branson sporting shaved legs under a sexy AirAsia red skirt, blonde wig and a pair of heels. As part of the deal, the entrepreneur spent the five and half hour flight pouring coffee and tea, serving meals, distributing goodies and making inflight announcements. The rare-sighting was the consequence of losing a friendly Formula 1 bet to the AirAsia boss over two years ago. “He is an entrepreneur, visionary, knight and adventurer – Sir Richard can now also add AirAsia flight attendant to his long list of credentials,” Mr Fernandes said. “Sir Richard graduated as a member of the AirAsia cabin crew with flying colours and he performed all his ...

Well well well... today's action of Mr. Richard Brandon was quite funny. But also it can be seen as effect of growing age. I think he was not in limelight for a while so he thought to change the camera position of journalists and take again everyone's mind space as a weird businessman. But he had to pay by getting fired by Tony Fernandes from AirAsia for his annoying actions.
