“Biman sitting idle with large planes,” published on July 28, 2014
It is disgusting news that Biman's 777-300 ERs planes are lying idle, thus making Biman lose crores of taka every year. Firstly, Biman should have thought about its position before purchasing those planes. Secondly, Biman should have listened to Boeing company for getting those planes run. Biman did not do anything. Biman also doesn't have enough pilots to run those planes.
Typical Bangladeshi mismanagement and corruption at their worst. We will never learn!!
Biman is in a mess and it needs a complete overhauling. The tragedy is that despite knowing where the problem lies, steps are not being taken to rectify them as the beneficiaries have good rapport with the people who can take action.
Biman will never run profitably. Biman must shed some fat and become lean and thin and constantly evaluate its performance. It must find some strategic partners before expanding new routes. While New York and Toronto could be profitable routes, Biman must provide opportunities for targeted passengers living outside those hubs by making alliance and code sharing with other carriers so that Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary as well as Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago and Seattle etc. can be connected too.
We don't need to hire another foreigner with crores of taka to tell us what we already know. There is a lot of theft and corruption which are affecting Biman. The only way that can be fixed is through transparency in expenditure and audited quarterly reports.
The management is incompetent and the flight staffs are rude. Currently, the national airline is an embarrassment to the country.

Israel doesn't want peace. Their sense of absolute superiority, annihilation and entitlement leaves no room for peace.
