eTN News on Video
From the editor
Dear eTN reader,

Something quite out of the ordinary is happening right now in Malaysia. While fuel prices keep skyrocketing, airfares keep falling, with some airlines even offering "free seats." This development comes as a result of a bloodbath competition among Malaysian carriers. Click to today's lead story to find out what the big fuzz is all about.

Also, I am not embarrassed to admit that editions from the past few weeks have been filled with mishaps. Conversion to the new systems has been quite an arduous task for all of us here at eTN. We are working diligently to tweak the areas that warrant such attention. We thank you ever so much for your patience throughout the entire process. Here's to moving forward...
Thanks very much for reading today's edition. Have a wonderful weekend!
