Several bloggers and Barisan National officials were said to have criticized the “travel style” with some saying that PR used to say that they are more prudent in traveling as they opted to fly in low-cost airline, in comparison to their BN counterparts.

However, Anwar and PR have answered these critics by saying that the private jet was offered to them by a friend, and that the use of such facility enables them to move within Sabah and Sarawak at faster speed.
