Malaysia Airlines will slash thousands of staff, trim routes, replace its CEO and consider strategic stake sales to outside investors under plans announced Friday to save it from bankruptcy after two devastating disasters. "The combination of measures announced today will enable our national airline to be revived," said Azman Mokhtar, head of state investment fund Khazanah Nasional, which has taken over the struggling company. He said the airline would carry out a "route rationalisation" -- a term Malaysia Airlines has used previously for cutting unprofitable routes -- and to pick a new CEO by the end of 2014. Khazanah Nasional, which already owns 70 percent of Malaysia Airlines (MAS), announced plans in early August to acquire all remaining shares and de-list the company as it works to revive it.
