  3. I believe that the media have got their wires crossed. https://mothership.sg/2023/01/singapore-malaysia-klia-automated-clearance/
  4. I'm not entirely sure what you're referring to. Unless something has changed very recently, the only foreigners that can use autogates at KLIA are long term pass holders. General visitors are excluded. SG has introduced automated clearance for Malaysians, and a bunch of other nationalities, for arrival and departure by air (not sure if the land crossings have them). In AU, Malaysians do technically qualify for arrival SmartGate clearance, though it can be hit or miss. Departure clearance has been SmartGate for a long time. The US has no e-gates to speak of, not even for their own citizens. They have kiosks where you submit your customs declaration, but you still have to be cleared by an officer.
  5. We've seen lately that OUR e-gates have been opened to Singapore, US, OZ etc.. I wonder if the reason it hasn't be reciprocated is for the one you stated above.
  6. SalamAir Adds Seasonal Kuala Lumpur Service in 3Q23 SalamAir in the third quarter of 2023 plans to extend its network to Malaysia, where the airline schedules Muscat – Kuala Lumpur nonstop flight, with Airbus A321neo aircraft.

  12. Not what my friends in MAS say, they even got bonus last month.
  13. Pretty much the same on Redcap and OD. Working in the airline industry in Msia, you're either underpaid for the work you did than neighboring peers in Asean, undervalued, not protected, forced to penny count for the company. Then imagine someone from Gulf comes and flashes you rm100-150k to exit your debt bond and monthly non taxable salary in USD, nearly half who are approached would gradually jump. Then the local airlines in msia have to forkout large last min sums to do type rating for the freshies. Its the same sentiment for the office private business segment with inflation up but salaries and balance life/work not catching up. Client/Customers well being not thought off and hospitality % is degrading. Only minor leeway we see is Myairline but we'll see how long they can water down. The Gov after undergoing 4 changes in the meantime is parroting the same autopilot phrase instead of solving the issue hands on. https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2023/01/20/airlines-urged-to-focus-on-operations-to-avoid-delays
  14. I just wonder how this will impact safety - if the morale of the whole company is poor, there is a good possibility that safety will be compromised. Lets pray that we don't have another disaster like what MH experienced in 2014.
  15. AKL ground handling is outsourced. I forgot the name. Yes, the MH current timetable is cracking at its seam, insufficient aircraft, insufficient crew, both ground and air), insufficient engineers. I don't think the management gives two hoots about it. Everyone is staying put just because they have family at home and to put food on the table. I don't expect the current staff (minus the management) who bear the brunt of the passengers/ clients daily, will walk the extra mile for the company and I totally understand this since it is a shithole company to work in.
  16. Btw, 9M-MLJ was delivered few days ago with this new cabin.
  17. I know some people who regularly flies to Dhaka and they say that the Malindo flights are almost always full of Bangladeshi pax. I suppose management is right to capitalise on where the demand is. Domestic flights are too price sensitive and there is also political pressure to keep fares low. Good yielding international flights will help to pad up margins lost on domestic destinations.
  18. Yes, their widebodies are working very hard - even the A350s are pressed on to Japan/Australia/NZ routes. They are really short of widebodies and this kind of poor fleet planning needs to stop. It seems like they always look at aircraft purchases when an emergency happens because those higher up do not deal with non emergency situations!
  19. It would appear to me that MAG is really short of cash and is cutting all unnecessary expenditure and non profit making activities. I suspect that their situation is far from the rosy picture they are painting of themselves to the media and the public.
  20. From my visual observation in KLIA, most of OD targets pax are from South and Central Asia and almost half of them continuing towards Australia. A pretty lucrative niche market when compared to them struggling to fill up the frequency demanding but low yield domestic Malaysia market.
  21. At Maswings while there are 10 atr. Only 6 are on active duty ever since most of the RAS turboprop routes have been been discontinued only a select few remain. Meanwhile MASWings is facing a shortage of twin otter vikings by at least 2-3 frames and MOT is midst of adding more new subsidies routes and frequency for STOL routes.
  22. Not sure most know these frames to be from ALC. Another being shown was 2 a330-9neo being primed for Q4 2023. Group CEO disclosing at least 10-12 new aircrafts will be delivered in the end of 2023 with large chunk belonging to the 737-8.
  23. Does that mean that they are willing to accept the China NTUs?
  24. It appears that FY's ATR fleet is being depleted with no replacements incoming. Does FY have plans to operate jets from SZB? Will Mavcom sanction it?
  25. New info from initial 2 frames, we may see 6-8 frames being brought forward.
  26. Boeing 737 MAX returns to fly with Malaysia Airlines by June 2023? https://www.nst.com.my/business/2023/01/871657/boeing-737-max-returns-fly-malaysia-airlines-june-2023
  27. Yes, I think people associate them with Lion Air and flying with them only as a last resort.
