  1. Last week
  2. GF used to fly to KUL with their 343 then discontinue. They plan to reinstate the route but then pandemic hits.
  3. You are right. Air Arabia flies SHJ-KUL 11x weekly and KU 3x weekly (both aren't loaded for Summer 2024 tho). No BAH/AMM flights. GF only flies to SIN, BKK, MNL. And also SV with a few MED flights plus IR from TKA (both aren't convenient for beyond connections from those cities). I remember Iraqi Airways used to fly Baghdad-KL not too long ago πŸ˜…
  4. I believe Air Arabia flies SHJ-KUL too. And KU on KWI-KUL. Is there any BAH flight ?
  5. Oman Air is also increasing from current 8x to 14x weekly beginning March 2024. So next summer, we will have: 5x daily JED (3x SV, 1 each between MH and QR) 4x daily DOH between MH and QR 3x daily DXB by EK 2x daily AUH by EY 2x daily MCT by WY 2x daily IST by TK That seems to be a lot of MENA/Europe traffic plus a number of Americas and Africa connections but yet no European carriers have announced their plans to return to KUL for summer 2024 (yet?). Most if not all of these carriers above have beyond KUL connections with MH and to a certain extent, OD.
  6. From Jim Liu’s aeroroutes…. ETIHAD INCREASES KUALA LUMPUR FLIGHTS FROM JANUARY 2024 Published at 1730GMT 22SEP23 Etihad Airways starting January 2024 is expanding service to Malaysia, where the airline plans to increase Abu Dhabi – Kuala Lumpur flight, from 1 to 2 daily. The 2nd daily EY412/413 service, on board Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, is scheduled to commence on 15JAN24, and will be maintained on/after 31MAR24. EY412 AUH0845 – 1950KUL 789 D EY418 AUH2100 – 0805+1KUL 789 D EY413 KUL0925 – 1250AUH 789 D EY411 KUL2115 – 0040+1AUH 789 D good to see that the demand for flights to Malaysia is healthy!
  7. China Eastern Resumes Shanghai – Kuala Lumpur From Sep 2023 China Eastern next week plans to resume Shanghai Pu Dong – Kuala Lumpur service, last served until April 2014. The Skyteam member will operate this route from 25SEP23, with Airbus A350-900XWB aircraft. This route is scheduled on daily basis. MU247 PVG2000 – 0200+1KUL 359 D MU248 KUL0300 – 0815PVG 359 D This daily service is in addition to existing 2 daily flights operated by Shanghai Airlines. https://www.aeroroutes.com/eng/230920-musep23kul
  8. 9M-VVA seems to be prepped again for BKI after months of hibernation.
  9. Thai Lion Air Plans Penang Service From Nov 2023 Thai Lion Air from mid-November 2023 intends to add service to Penang, where the airline schedules Bangkok Don Mueang – Penang nonstop flight. From 16NOV23, Boeing 737-800/-900ER operates this route 4 times weekly, based on schedule listing in the OAG. SL132 DMK1205 – 1455PEN 737 x135 SL133 PEN1550 – 1640DMK 737 x135 https://www.aeroroutes.com/eng/230921-slnw23pen
  10. Yeah, but airlines are finding supply chain issues and can't get them to return to service soon enough!
  11. There are still 5 A380's parked in DWC.
  12. I think EK's problem is not demand but aircraft availability. They can't get any more A380s and the B779s are delayed by an unreasonable amount of time. With their flights mostly sold out, they need more aircraft capacity for their routes!
  13. Not necessary to take over. Both EK and FlyDubai can fly to the same destination if there is really a strong demand. There are many destinations currently served by both carriers.
  14. Most likely other LCC in the same region such as Air Arabia, Salam Air, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, etc to follow suit.
  15. Wow with the SQ seat density so low, it should only be used on higher yield routes. I wonder when will D7 reconfigure these premium cabins. Their fares now are much closer to those on FSCs. So maybe they can make some money with these aircraft!
  16. It looks like MAG has secured a used (ex-SAS) A350-900 MSN 378 that is younger than their existing aircraft (3.7 yrs old). Source: https://www.planespotters.net/airframe/airbus-a350-900-ei-hjz-jp-lease-jlps/34w465
  17. I guess that if there is strong demand then EK could eventually take over
  18. flydubai's 737max product puts MH's refurbished NG and soon max to shame.
  19. Nice to see LGK get long-haul service again but I guess this rules out EK launching PEN. IIRC it was slated to be DXB-SIN-PEN with 5th freedom rights but never actually launched because of Covid. That would've been a very interesting ride.
  20. flydubai launches daily service to Langkawi and Penang in Malaysia https://news.flydubai.com/flydubai-launches-daily-service-to-langkawi-and-penang-in-malaysia
  21. No brainer seeing MEL and SYD runway length was temporary shorten to something about 2000meters(shorter than the extended runway at Sandakan 2500meters) occasionally on certain daytime periods. An aircraft needing to do flights of more than 4hours plus fully loaded with passengers would be risking overrun plus bonus risk if ground temperature exceeds 30c.
  22. Australia begins investigating two runway excursions at Melbourne Airport https://www.aerotime.aero/articles/atsb-mel-runway-exc The Australian Transportation Board (ATSB) detailed that two separate runway excursions have led to Melbourne Airport (MEL) stopping runway overlay works. According to the ATSB, it will investigate two incidents where a Malaysian Airlines Airbus A330, registered as 9M-MTL, and a Bamboo Airways Boeing 787-9, registered as VN-A819, rotated past the temporary displaced threshold. On both occasions the jet blast affected people and objects working on the runway. The incident involving Malaysian Airlines took place on September 7, 2023, while the Bamboo Airways 787-9 rotated too late on September 18, 2023. According to flightradar24.com data, the Airbus A330 continued to its destination Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), Malaysia, without further incident. The Bamboo Airways jet, which was traveling to Hanoi Noi Bai International Airport (HAN), Vietnam, also continued to its destination.
  23. Malaysia Airlines gradually restoring full meal service - Loke https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2023/09/956289/malaysia-airlines-gradually-restoring-full-meal-service-loke KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines has reintroduced hot meals for some sectors after receiving additional equipment for in-flight food preparation. Transport Minister Anthony Loke said that the airline is now bringing back their 'signature MH' dishes, such as satay, which is served in business class. He stated that any inconveniences still faced by the national airline on other flights was deeply regrettable. "However, Malaysia Airlines is working to fully restore the situation as soon as possible," he said in a Facebook post yesterday. Malaysia Airlines: Full meal service restored by mid-November https://www.nst.com.my/business/2023/09/955686/malaysia-airlines-full-meal-service-restored-mid-november https://theedgemalaysia.com/node/682660 KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines Bhd expects to restore its full meal service onboard its flights by mid-November this year. It has started providing hot meals onboard flights that were affected by its recent catering transition with the arrival of 10 new high-lift trucks. The national carrier's parent company, Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) said the trucks are used to uplift the meal carts at the correct temperatures to preserve the freshness of hot and ambient meals while maintaining stringent quality and safety practices throughout the uplifting process. MAG also said Malaysia Airlines had to temporarily suspend its hot meals offerings since Sept 1 due to the lack number of high-lift trucks available. In an interview with the New Straits Times (NST) last week, MAG group managing director Datuk Captain Izham Ismail said Malaysia Airlines had to face teething challenges over the distribution of hot meals due to the limited number of high-lift trucks. The trucks are owned and operated by MAG's ground handling unit, AeroDarat Services Sdn Bhd. AeroDarat is expected to receive another 10 new high-lift trucks in October. Izham said AeroDarat had bought 20 new high-lift trucks in June this year when negotiations between MAG and Brahim's Holdings Bhd's in-flight catering unit, Brahim's Food Services Sdn Bhd (BFS) went south. Malaysia Airlines and BFS ended their 26-year partnership on Aug. 31. Meanwhile, MAG said Malaysia Airlines has reintroduced simplified hot meals for business class passengers on the Bangkok and Denpasar routes since Sept 11. It also said that hot meals are also served for economy class passengers traveling to Bangkok and Denpasar as well as for all cabin class on flights from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Manila and Hong Kong. "Business class passengers heading to all South Asia sectors will additionally enjoy the renowned Malaysia Airlines satay. Other Asean cities will be served with hot meals in stages," MAG said in a statement today. Malaysia Airlines had introduced revised in-flight meal offerings on routes previously served by BFS since Sept 1. The revised meals include its signature peanuts and beverages, refreshments in ready-to-go boxes with pre-packaged pastries, chocolate, biscuits, and drinks or hot meals in disposable containers presented on a simplified tray set-up. The national carrier's services on the London, Auckland, Jeddah, Madinah, Osaka and Haneda (Tokyo) routes remain unaffected.
  24. In other news, MH and CX will not proceed with their joint business (metal-neutral, network planning and coordination etc.) application with MAVCOM. It appears that MAVCOM isn't satisfied with the outcome of this proposed JB as it will severely hamper competition between MY and HK. I am curious if you know that the most revered airline in MWings, SQ, is using PP Business for their business/*G pax? Probably not SIN. It's too short of a flight to upload proper meals. BKK/DPS has almost always been uplifted from outstation. Some cities like HKT, PNH etc. are back-catered (i.e. uplifted from KUL). Just 7 weekly NRT and 5 weekly HND. HND will be swapped with NRT in a few days and HND doesn't appear in schedule until Summer 2024 (not open for sale, but MH70/71, the daytime KUL-NRT is open for sale). I don't know if HND schedule is not working out for them or if they can't get a permanent preferred slot at HND.
