  1. Can you check -LND too as it's recently been operating longer flights to mostly TRZ and TRV, compared to the others it doesn't do a great deal of domestic flying compared to the other non IFE birds -LCK, L, M and P.


    Just checked and for the second time this week it's operating to BNE via DPS.

    LND is definitely still without IFE installed. The probable reason why its been spotted doing TRV and TRZ lately is that unlike LNC, LND is an EDTO certified and equipped aircraft. Won't be surprised to see it going in for IFE installation in near future too (assuming LNC had its IFE installation done during the last ground time in SZB)

  2. Earlier this afternoon -LNC positioned SZB-KUL using the unusual flight number of OD9001.


    Curious to know why it's been at SZB for an extended period presumably undergoing some kind of maintenance.


    Could it of possibly been at Airod having the seats changed? I think Airod used to fit the seats into their earlier deliveries which were delivered with only J class seats installed.


    The flight number used is interesting as Malindo uses OD5001/5002 flight numbers for maintenance ferry flights to/from Batam Aero Technic, Indonesia.

    Someone may possibly be right about IFE installation on LNC. The NO IFE remarks have been removed from dispatch documents for this aircraft. Now we just need a confirmation from anyone who gets onboard the aircraft.

  3. The inflight magazine lists the MAX has a capacity of 180 single class.


    Are they phasing out business class?


    As these frames were originally destined for Lion Thai, they will feature a single class configuration for now. No news yet if a retrofit is planned in future.

  5. wow, it bothers some people that much when even we MH pilots ourselves put our hands out to congratulate and wish the flight crew all the best on their inaugural journey without thinking if they're Malays, Chinese or Indians.. all we know is that they're MH pilots and frankly, thats all that matters to us.
