  1. Didn't Tony claim AK's cost at 2.33 cents/seat/km is among lowest in the world, and easily 30% of MH's? Then he should be able to survive. :)

     

    No doubt MH is picking a fight with AK by intruding into the low cost segment, but AK is taking the bait. If AK is confident of their own thoughts (i.e. the lowest cost/km, people just want to fly from point A to point B and other issues including getting a window seat does not matter) then they shouldn't be bothered about what MH do.


  2. Is it on selected days only? Because I picked a few dates during the early stage of the promo and they all have "0" fare. Now of course some of the seats already been taken. I think the best is they actually tell us how many seats on each flight is allocated as special fare. I believe a few years back MH did announced on newspaper how many seats for a certain fare to LHR and SYD.


  3. Preparation:

    Always pack the night before the flight but still occasionally forgetting essentials such as toothpaste, comb and hair gel because the next morning still have to use mah. Anyway, not that fussy about myself when I reach the other side. Just bring enough cash lah.

     

    Baggage:

    Prefer 1 cabin size luggage. If travel to work normally I bring along another backpack with notebook, hopefully can surf MWings while at hotel.

     

    Getting to the Airport:

    Self arrange. I personally like to ask my wife to drive me to airport so that I can have her company before I fly.

     

    Choice of Airline:

    Airlines not yet flown before and wide-body. In that order.

     

    Choice of Airliner/Airport/Frequency etc:

    99% of my ride till date is on MH so can't really comment on this.

     

    Booking:

    Normally will check schedule on my own before deciding on this but since my company has switch to AK there is some difficulties in getting approval to fly on a particular flight and that flight actually took off. Prefers window seat as front as possible.

     

    Check-In:

    At least 1 hour before. Wanted to enjoy some spotting before flight.

     

    Behavior On board:

    Like a child when on board a MH B777. Mess around with the seat, LCD etc. for the whole 2.5hrs flight. Other aircraft depends but most of the time staring out the window or take pictures.

     

    Duty Free Shopping:

    Only 1/400 diecast aircraft models that I don't have yet.

     

    Traveling in Group:

    No problem. It's fun.

     

    Other Habits

    Call my wife before I board and after I disembark. Always brings my house keys.

     

    Dislike

    Passengers with huge hand-carry bags.

     

    Footnote

    Flying is more than just flying!


  4. "Flying Coffin", just thinking of bring back the old story this afternoon. :lol: :p still remember that year 2003, around August to October, someone report that he/she spot a flying coffin, if not mistaken is saw it from the CCTV monitor. few weeks/days later, they identified that the so-called flying coffin actually is a small aircraft. :blink: anyone got the more detail report on this news? or anyone still remember this?

     

    The RMAF Nuri was given the flying coffin nickname last time. And they fly them to rescue other people! :o


  5. Would other airlines like SQ given the chance to fly BKI-KUL or KUL - PEN under the open sky policy come 2009? I thought I read somewhere that a fully liberalised open sky policy will be introduced in 2009.

     

    If that so, does that mean we will not see a premium airline for Malaysia as MH choose to fight AK instead of maintaining quality and service and fight airlines like SQ and CX?


  6. Hah! They forgot about MH free baggage allowance is 5kg more than theirs! And how about seat allocation, you have to pay extra for the Xpress boarding. And the additional stress for getting in the queue even before the plane arrives and using the overcrowded LCCT. :pardon:

     

    Hah, they have to offer Xpress Xpress boarding already now that everyone don't mind paying the additional RM20 to board the plane first. I have seen two guys jostling to board the plane first and both got stuck at the door of the departure gate.


  7. What about seat selection? They should add orange juice (RM5?), sandwiches (RM8?) and RM20 for that seat selection which MH is providing free. Flying on AK Airbus is like taking a ride on those pink color KL mini bus. They can't even fly on time!
