“Berlaku sejak 22 April 2019, kemitraan KrisFlyer dengan Mileslife untuk sementara ditangguhkan hingga pemberitahuan lebih lanjut,” bunyi tulisan tersebut.Pasalnya berbagai tanda dan sinyal menunjukkan Mileslife tengah dalam pergolakan. Hal ini pun terlihat dari 47 karyawan perusahaan ini yang terdaftar di Linkedin sebagai staf Mileslife dimana delapan diantaranya menyatakan terakhir bekerja per April ini.Ini juga dibuktikan dimana seorang pedagang asal Cina yang mengeluh tidak menerima pembayaran $7420 dari Mileslife sejak Desember 2018 kemarin. Seorang staf mengatakan kepada pedagang tersebut bahwa karyawan banyak yang diberhentikan dan perusahaan tutup.Beberapa vendor lainnya bahkan melaporkan tidak dapat menghubungi perusahaan yang bermarkas di Cina itu. Karena hal ini kemudian Mileslife mengeluarkan pernyataan dalam bahasa Cina yang menyangkal rumor dan mengatakan bahwa ini bisnis seperti biasa.Pernyataan tersebut juga menyatakan operasional perusahaan tersebut untung tahun 2018 kemarin. Namun, bisnis secara keseluruhan mengalami kerugian karena operasi di luar negeri. Mileslife kemudian berjanji untuk melunasi semua hutang dengan para pedagang. Tetapi, pernyataan itu tampaknya tidak menyangkal ada PHK.“Kami juga menyadari bahwa seorang karyawan Mileslife (Cina) telah berbagi bahwa perusahaan itu menyusut operasi di Tiongkok, dan mengurangi tenaga kerja. Kami mohon maaf atas kepanikan ini. Kami mohon maaf karena tidak menyampaikan informasi ini dengan cara yang lebih profesional dan matang,” ujar pernyataan itu.Perusahaan kemudian merilis pernyataan dalam Bahasa Inggris di Facebook dimana pihaknya memahami bahwa pengguna telah melaporkan contoh terbatas di mana pedagang terpilih menunda sementara penerimaan Mileslife setelah dugaan ini.“Tim kami bekerja keras untuk menjangkau semua mitra yang berharga untuk mengatasi masalah mereka, dan mencari pengertian Anda atas ketidaknyamanan yang ditimbulkan selama ini waktu, “kata pernyataan itu.Baca juga: Tidur Selonjoran di Kelas Ekonomi Jarak Jauh, Garuda Indonesia Tawarkan Economy Sleeping ComfortSingapore Airlines untuk menjelaskan mengapa mereka menangguhkan kemitraan. “Kami juga telah menghubungi Mileslife untuk memberikan komentar dan bertanya apakah Mileslife bermaksud mengembalikan uang kepada pengguna yang membeli kreditnya.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedMiles KrisFlyer Singapore Airlines Naik Per 7 Desember 201721/11/2017In “Destinasi”Singapore Airlines Teken MoU dengan Malaysia Airlines, Warganet Mencak-Mencak di Media Sosial01/07/2019In “Featured”Perluas Ekspansi, JavaMifi Gandeng Singapore Airlines17/05/2019In “Featured” Singapore Airlines A330 Baru-baru ini Singapore Airlines menangguhkan kemitraannya antara KrisFlyer, program frequent-flyer dengan Mileslife.
