  4. Very true.... can't rely on anyone to report real news these days. One thing for sure... the US wants to cripple or slow down the Chinese and possibly brought them under the control of the US, so the US can continue their domination for years to come. Unfortunately MH17, Malaysia Airlines and possibly Malaysia are victims in this case. Accusations were quickly formed by supplying possibly doctored "evidence". It seems after all there is a struggle or proxy warfare in the background that is largely unaware of by the general public.
  5. It is good to watch all media - western media watchers will also wince when they watch the CCTV coverage of events in HK. Moral of the story is to read and view media widely (and with open minds) so that you get coverage from the various perspectives. Then only make your mind up, if you wish to form some opinion! PS On a personal note, apart from Malaysian media, I do follow US, Australian, British, French, Chinese, Russian and Middle Eastern media too. They are all biased. Really makes one think what the real function of media (of the various countries) and the agenda that they pursue.
  6. Boeing's 777X jetliner successfully completes maiden flight SEATTLE (Reuters) - Boeing Co successfully staged the first flight of the world’s largest twin-engined jetliner on Saturday in a respite from the crisis over its smallest model, the grounded 737 MAX. The 777X, a larger version of the 777 mini-jumbo, touched down at the historic Boeing Field outside Seattle at 2 pm (2200 GMT) after a debut which began almost four hours earlier at Boeing’s revamped wide-body assembly lines north of the city. The decision to take advantage of a gap in clouds to start the months of testing needed before the jet can carry passengers came after two attempts had to be postponed due to high winds. “It’s a proud day for us,” said the chief executive of Boeing’s commercial airplane unit, Stan Deal.

  7. Conspiracy theory or not, western media is biased and often attached to their political agenda. I was in Hong Kong to witness the so called Pro-democracy bullshit movement. The western media are so biased that they turned a blind eve on the truth but supported the vigilantes that destroyed the city. The western media and western govt orchastred much of the movement from behind the scene.
  8. Yesterday
  9. If they’re going to lose money anyway they might as well get some shiny new widebodies
  10. With a more lucrative home market I’d be disappointed if they didn’t find good routes to fly.
  11. so long MAB unable to improve their operation efficiency, no need to say any aircraft replacement plan.
  12. NH announced a huge expansion due to the new HND slots (new flights to ARN, IST, MXP as well as increased frequencies to SFO, SYD etc.) - they probably need the planes from somewhere and SE Asia gets the brunt of it. Having that said, KUL capacity adjustments lasts for only 2 months unlike other stations where their NRT flights are halved for entire summer. HND's slots are use it or lose it. NRT on the other hand still have slots available. HND is also taking over some transfer pax (e.g. even with the limited KUL flights, MY-US pax are still able to transfer at HND to LAX, JFK, SFO - which probably accounts for more than 50% of the MY-US market on NH).
  13. Last week

    KUL 33 2020

    D7 lost the X branding some time ago - I remember that many at shareholder meetings don't like the X on the tail and they are slowly doing that with each aircraft that undergoes repainting. Soon the planes will all look like AKs and a merger is also imminent.
  15. Last Thursday, 23 Jan, captures.
  16. Latest special livery for AK. I love Kelantan Three liveries of D7. Do we call them Retro, Classic, New liveries? Good night
  17. Politics rules the day in MAS sale See: https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2020/01/25/politics-rules-the-day-in-mas-sale Looks like they have to state the obvious!
  18. Do also note that most of the cuts are from their NRT operations - it looks like for ANA, NRT flights are less popular than HND ones.
  19. Probably because they need to redeploy planes to high demand routes for the Summer Olympics.
  20. ANA S20 South East Asia Frequency variations ANA in summer 2020 season is adjusting operations to South East Asia, which sees a number of variations, announced by the airline yesterday (23JAN20).

  21. Soon, Thai Airasia X will outgrow the struggling Malaysia AirAsia X. They seem to have found good routes to fly!

  23. This is hardly an MH-only issue. The concept isn’t very difficult to understand: if you want free/cheap changes, buy a flexible ticket. Much easier to understand than things like CASK if you ask me
  24. A333 Neo CASK is cheaper than A350/787? MH change of date on ONE SECTOR is MORE EXPENSIVE than brand NEW RETURN ticket. As if MH was not subsidized by our gomen. how much has gomen had written off on MH, how much more to go? How much premium fare MH could charge by serving RM4.5 meal box, sugary drinks? MH should ask, why foreign premium pax have abandoned MH. At existing MH network, how big is transit pax market for MH? MH issue is not new or started in last few years but in existent for many years. The facts remain despite multiple BTP and change of CEO, MH is still bleeding >RM800m p.a and not a financial feasible business unit.
