It makes one wonder when are they going to do anything right. The eyes can't see beyond the tip of the nose.The LCCT Terminal is hardly two years old and is already bursting at the seams. My post 'The Singapore Story, Malaysia's Dream' although not detailed was slightly ahead of the NST report on the state of affairs at KLIA. Most of the problems are human factors, bad planning and bad work attitude.
The LCCT Terminal is just across the runway tarmac from KLIA, yet it is 20 km away. Does KLIA needs that much space for future expansion to kick the LCCT that far ? Our bright and skilled planners and artisans underestimated the magnetic draw of cheap fares, how it can attract huge number of people over a short period of time. The airport was officially opened in March 2006 and within a span of 21 months had become a runaway success and a failure.
The planners in government who decide to banish Air Asia to the LCCT was hoping that the airline would eventually die. They made a big mistake.It's what they built that is dying, the terminal.
