(Marketingmagazine.com.my) – By: Malati Siniah

In a cheeky social media post, king of the skies Tony Fernandes, Air Asia’s boss took a jab at the latest developments with his competitor Malaysian Airlines (MAS)

Capturing a moment at his visit to the ‘Graduan’ job fair over the weekend,  Tony shared his visit to the MAS booth where he quipped that he was planning to apply for the available CEO position at the airline.

His posting has been making its rounds on social media garnering over 8,000 likes, 600 shares on Facebook and over 1,200 likes on Instagram.

Tony, famous for his comedic ways of taking jibes at his competitors clarified in his Facebook post that the comment was only made in jest and he was in no hurry to leave.

Apart from his social postings, last week Tony shared his lighter side with comedian Harith Iskandar in his promo clip for the comedian’s late night talk show on Astro Awani, a first of its kind in Malaysia.

The light-hearted clip showed Harith driving Tony around in his car while  making subtle references on the airline’s ‘extra charges’, the clip uploaded last Wednesday has already been viewed over 100,000 times on YouTube.

Tony appeared on ‘Obviously Harith’ last Saturday as the show’s first guest, he didn’t fail to entertain sparring with the wisecracking Harith and even squeezing a quick workout in between.
