  1. One of the best replies I've ever read in a long time. 👏 Spot on and exactly what's going on in todays economical and political climate in this country.
  2. Oh wait, Air France-KLM too denied having any involvement. https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/air-franceklm-says-not-involved-malaysia-airlines-sale-talks So seems like Focus Malaysia is creating rubbish hype out of nothing.
  3. Makes me wonder how credible Focus Malaysia source is. I mean like JAL has denied having any thoughts of bidding for MAB back in November and we know Khazanah themselves have shot down the idea of the last few takeover bids due to unattractive offers. https://www.nst.com.my/business/2019/11/535351/qatar-airways-and-japan-airlines-deny-bidding-mas-stake I'm not surprised though about D7-MH as TF have long been looking for a way to save D7. 2012 dejavu?
  4. Labuan could barely hold 3 commercial jets at one time due to its apron constraint. Especially whenever MYY or BKI weather is bad, a few diversions and thats the end of LBU accepting more traffic.
  5. Not sure about klia2, rarely go there. But KLIA1 toilet cleanliness are definitely commendable. The one beside KFC is probably the best, the Bangladeshi cleaner will even serve you tissues from the dispenser as you wash your hands past the sink area.
  6. The Czech govt aircraft, is it a technical stop or an official visit to BKI by their leader?
  7. Doesn't look too promising for things at RedX.
  8. Have to accept the fact AirAsia is the market leader when it comes promotions, attracting customers and creating hype. Making full use of social media to get attention. Creative marketing at its best. The impact AirAsia has on passengers have gone down to a point where they don't even compare fares to other airlines when it comes to buying a ticket. Even though other airlines maybe cheaper and probably full service. Its brand power to say the least.
  9. A good way for Kiwi.com to tap into AirAsia's branding power.
  10. For a unified ASEAN aviation regulatory body to even take form, the ASEAN nations as a whole need to be unified in hell loads of stuff (economy, immigration, political stand, etc etc etc) . A unified aviation regulatory within this region is probably item number infinity in the priority list as what Craig highlighted.
  11. I also wonder if it only impacts code share with American operators. If not then i guess no problems with MH then to code share with other foreign operators that fly into US. American Airlines will be the one impacted from getting MH pax feed. MH can depend on other operators to feed their pax into US. Just that feeding pax into secondary US cities will be a problem.
  12. The fee hikes should commensurate with equal level of services provided which is sadly not the case. Well what is new in this country anyway. Hope this downgrade give a positive wake up call to all stakeholders to fix what FAA feels is not up to par.
  13. Totally not connected. If its purely on safety then FAA should be questioned regarding its Boeing scandal. Finally CAAM can get a taste their own medicine with how they treat operators especially during audits. Perhaps also the result of curses from aviation professionals (engineers, flight crew, dispatchers and etc) on exorbitantly high licensing fees. I was told pilots have to pay close to rm1500 a year to renew their licenses on the back of a very inefficient agency which operates as if its still the year 1957.
  14. The Airlines or Operators safety policy is to conform to international standards (ICAO) when it comes to standard practices. Its CAAM responsibility to make sure local operators adhere to it which in FAAs opinion failed to do so. So yes, as what flee highlighted, CAAM is accountable and its going to be interesting to see what their official statement on this is going to be like.
