Chris Andrews, the senior general manager of Malaysia Airlines, has resigned over a controversy regarding his salary.

Andrews, an expatriate manager, reportedly resigned after it was revealed that the financially struggling airline was paying him approximately USD1,996 daily. An airline official confirmed the resignation to Agence France-Presse, giving no further details.

The Malaysian opposition has criticised the airline's spending and the opposition leader Lim Kit Siang said it was "shocking and unacceptable". Siang went on to describe the airline's alleged decision to buy three paintings worth approximately USD400,000 for company headquarters as "a gross and irresponsible extravagance".
