He was speaking during a forum on “My Voice, My Nation” in Bukit Jalil yesterday (June 26).

“I have 15 minutes to speak about my life and like AirAsia, I will be on time.”

He then relayed a short story about how he’s “not always on time”.

“Well, but (I am) not always on time.”

According to Tony, during Tun Dr Mahathir’s first stint as prime minister 18 years ago, Tony had an appointment with him. The meeting was to propose initiating AirAsia as a budget airline.

Tony’s appointment with Dr Mahathir was set at 9.30am. However, Tony arrived three hours earlier, at 6am. To ensure he would not be late for the meeting.

“The man who actually gave me the chance to start AirAsia is sitting in front of me today.”

This comes after an incident earlier this week where the defence ministry condemned Malaysia Airlines (MAS) for a flight delay that resulted in Defense minister, Mat Sabu, missing his appointment with Dr Mahathir in London.
