Haha nice one Redbike; been a while since I've seen that. A better choice would be Harry Enfield's 'loadsamoney' though I think ;)
RE: Jimmy Kibati
redbike agree "whatever the ask is at the moment, he thinks it's possible" must be confident, after all there is no going back. That was a bit more of a detailed article you found re Jimmy Kibati fastjet – New leadership for East Africa. http://www.travelwires.com/fastjet-new-leadership-east-africa-7099 Have a good weekend all.
RE: Jimmy Kibati
Greyparrot, Yep, the last four years are great especially with the 540 saga for FJET, if anyone knows the ropes here its this this man. With the CV spanning back that amount of years that's a lot of change and contacts in your list. You have to look at whats not being said, okay no funding has been announced via RNS yet so if you thought you would be out on your ear in April May, would you take up the challenge? I would be inclined to say no, so perhaps this is just an interim post within the company "GM" for bigger things in the pipeline which unfold later. I have no doubt what ever the ask is at the moment, he thinks it's possible and with a time to market on what ever it is that's asked. If you have that much experience in the regions you know what is and isn't possible, for me this guy is a fantastic addition to FJET with all the boxes ticked, Strategy, partner negotiations, contacts, commercial development, and a wealth of competition insight. As a LCC that's a real positive on so many fronts that opposition will also be now be on the back foot.
