I immediately thought that now MAHB has more money, then it could further upgrade airport facilities around the country so that things such as this would not happen again,
That was on July 3.
Air traffic control should not have even a bit of glitch as airports could not afford such things.
Planes could crash and people could die, okay.
As I previously wrote, when it comes to aviation, safety is paramount and there should not be even the slightest error.

If the airport is number one in the world like Singapore's Changi, then maybe that's okay lah.
Otherwise, many tourists will just think that we are not so welcoming and don't want to come here again.
