  1. I am guessing that they just wanted the crew to get some familiarization before flying further, which was the original intend. What they did was take out a B738 flying that route and plug in the A350 without adjusting the schedule or cancel/combine any flight. Most of the equipment upgrade is by cancelling one and combine into 2. Everything should be back to normal after 14 Jan. However, looking back at the record on FR24, 9M-MAC's first flight to PEN since 2 Jan has always been late which is puzzling. Delay ranged from 15 mins to 2 hours. If this happens high chance the subsequent flight will also be delayed.
  2. Yup, it was raining alright. Subsided a bit with a small window of light when MAC touch down, before getting worst.
  3. Problem with equipment is one thing, does it generate any unwanted attention from the crew as I read somewhere suction cup with gopro is a no-no on CX flight during take off and landing. I was stopped once from taking photos of the cabin, and of all the airlines in the world, Scoot did it!
  4. Ja Hur's ride has arrived.
  5. Adverse weather in Korea might be the possible cause behind a host of delays on Christmas eve. ZE501 was scheduled to arrive around midnight but was delayed for 12 hours.
  6. Another one coming. ZE501.
  7. Just missed the departure. Let's see if they will do it again tonight.
  8. MASWings second "NEGARAKU" special livery.
  9. Perhaps it's due to our poor command of English. Closer ones are located in the Philippines I think.
  10. There's a reason to why we term it as "TGed". TG is notorious for changing equipment last minute. Ironically the flag carrier from the land of a thousand smiles?
  11. After spending slightly more than 1.5 hours at BKI, time to depart for KCH.
  12. Sharing some photos of the A350 proving flight to BKI last Friday from the other side of the fence. Special thanks to Malaysia Airlines for giving me the opportunity to play a small part in this historic event. Not to forget Samuel Chy for the initial recommendation.
  13. HKG has had mixed fortune over the years, with everything from B777 to B738 and the seasonal A380. Now back to A332. Perhaps it has something to do with CX giving the route to KA, and MH felt that there is probably a chance to wrestle some market share by providing better equipment & service? From what I've read KA's service is nothing to shout about.
  14. One of those route that came and went. Let's hope it survive longer than BKI - BKK by Thai Smile.
  15. There is really nothing that we can do. Much like water and electricity tariff, GST etc. Like what was mentioned on the other thread, work on changing the "term".
  16. I tend to take a train ride to KLIA2 even if my flight depart from KLIA. That is provided I have enough time to spare. There is just more things to do there, and more lively. More food options, plus a open air observation deck.
  17. Huh? Maybe what they are trying to say is you can avoid paying GST if you buy an airplane.
  18. Has anyone tried the USB port for other purpose than to recharge your gadgets?
  19. Time to revive this thread. Don't know why it came, but it did. Atlas Air rego N492MC operating on behalf of Qantas Airways Ltd. Arrived around 1130 from SYD and departed just before 1500 to BKK.
