  1. Last week
  2. It was whoever who distributed the slots last time (can't recall if MAVCOM was set up then). 3x weekly to D7 and MH and 1x weekly to Transmile (for cargo) so they are trying to be fair to everyone but in the end it killed MH and Transmile because these 3/1 weekly flights probably not feasible to them. MH went with BKI-HND 3x B738 which obviously didn't work out for them. JL and NH announced that they will resume daily NRT-KUL beginning 1 July. NH's HND-KUL remain suspended at the moment.
  3. MH was stupid. They gave up their HND slots .. first they made it BKI-HND then gave it away to D7, if I remember correctly. Hopefully they will make use of their prized HND slots now
  4. It's way too early to speculate on the future of MH's TYO service. At the moment we don't even know what their intention is with the HND slots. They're not anywhere near full schedule yet. Plenty of frames to go around.
  5. Can use the 738 if traffic volume not big ?
  6. Would like to see once MH start HND - will it supplement 12 weekly NRT or they will reduce NRT? With the launch of DOH & HND, will they have enuff widebody for that?
  7. Earlier
  8. Hello and welcome back to air travel :) Has anyone seen the seat map for MH 160/161 (KUL-DOH-KUL)? It's a very interesting configuration. BTW, MH also received approval from MAVCOM for 7x weekly KUL-HND flights beginning June. Maybe I am out of the loop for a very long time, but did D7 gave up their rights or did Japan grant more slots to Malaysia?
  9. Your guess is correct. Qatar Airways used to fly 3x daily, now they are doing twice daily, the other slot will be taken up by Malaysia Airlines. The reduction on QR part was due to aircraft shortage: 28 A350 grounded and 9 B787-9 deliveries are delayed. They are bringing back another 5 A380 and lease 4 ex-CX B777-300ER but it is not good enough.
  10. https://www.nst.com.my/business/2022/05/794980/malaysia-airlines-expands-international-network-new-direct-flight-doha Perhaps this is to provide support to QR who are unable to mount flights to KUL due to some of their aircrafts being grounded 😎 Just wondering why it is timed in such a way too
  11. In the public domain now. https://www.malaysiaairlines.com/us/en/news-article/2022/malaysia-airlines-expands-network-new-direct-flight-doha.html Surprised they're going daily right away, when they're nowhere near restoring their international network. Other than being a QR feeder I can't imagine the rationale for this route.
  12. Anyone heard anything about MH launching DOH?

    BKI 2021

    Looks like she is being diverted to KCH, descending now FR24 has 9M-VVA (AK5108) arrival at BKI as "Delayed 7:14PM" - she need to do time travel to get back here in quarter of an hour 😀

    BKI 2021

    Cannot make out what is happening Instead of going round for another attempt, she has gone off so far as being 38k ft over MYY, and still heading south west 😦

    BKI 2021

    9M-VVA just aborted an approach into BKI runway 20 - wonder what happened ? Very late too, I think just about over the Grace Ville area
  18. Wonder if the 2mil seed money all evaporated yet - enough to take care of the paint job and parking charges ?

  20. I think they were originally meant for Lion Air and not Batik Air. That explains the seating. But they were also lazy and did not modify the cabin for Batik Air operations.
  21. The aircraft they are currently flying are already in Batik Air livery. We now wait for the arrival of the Max.
  22. Six years in the making....finally....... Malindo Air is Batik Air from tomorrow https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2022/04/792384/malindo-air-batik-air-tomorrow?fbclid=IwAR1n33_4rfOz7ziNomellsH-3t_eEuRh6x_qlEAFLAukjW1F3xEoQJ-T7O0 KUALA LUMPUR: Effective midnight, Malindo Air will be known as Batik Air. The Malaysia-based regional airline announced this evening its official rebranding. "The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia has granted a new Air Operators Certificate to Malindo Airways Sdn Bhd to do business as Batik Air with effect from April 28," the airline said in a statement. Malindo Air is a subsidiary company of the Lion Air Group. Other airlines under its stable include Super Jet, Wings Air, Batik Air Indonesia, Biz Jet, Thai Lion Air and Lion Air. The rebranding exercise, it said, was in line with the Lion Group's goal to establish a common identity for the full service airlines within the group.
  23. Seems like first B737-MAX 8 has arrived or should I say has returned home. Skyliner-avation.de is reporting PK-LQK previously 9M-LRC, first Malindo/Batik Air Malaysia B737-MAX 8 flew to KUL last night.

The last time they flew 9M-LRC with Batik Air Malaysia, they received numerous complaints as it was fully Y-class. A lot of customers who bought J-class ticket were forced to downgrade to Y-class. Not a good impression, especially in international operation. Its operation ended after few months. Currently all Lion Air Group 12 B737 MAX fleet (9 MAX-8 and 3 MAX-9) are in all-Y configuration.

  25. Capital A to be profitable next, says CEO https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2022/04/08/capital-a-to-be-profitable-next-says-ceo?fbclid=IwAR2mqtZY_3EGq3E53JUYMSB4gCz3RR83s0BjHUNaQ3NL-sSKrCSv3AZTR2w Capital A Bhd expects to return to profitability in 2023 in line with the anticipated recovery in travel demand by year-end, said chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes today. Speaking to reporters during a virtual media briefing today, he said AirAsia plans to have most of its fleet back in service by year-end. "Our sales (is currently) at 75 per cent of the pre-COVID19 level and I never expected it to (recover) so quickly. ..............The senile fellow is back at his game
