  1. Take a step back and you can see that Sarawak (non-PH) state is always on the opposite end with PH decisions and policies. This has more to do with political pride than business sense. Always Nancy vs Guan Eng. Wait until the next state election and should PH control the state, we might just see some improvement in air connectivity for Sarawak and the whole of Borneo. Sharing some recent news from Sabah PAL will commence 3 x weekly flight from Zamboanga to BKI sometime in March with Q400, and they are planning to re-open the Semporna airstrip to cater for flight to Semporna. Sarawak is really left behind in terms of air connectivity and tourism.
  2. Now that's one "unforeseen circumstances" I wouldn't mind having regularly...
  3. End last year. We were covering the Malindo BKI - KCH event. Got distracted by Xiamen Skyteam.
  4. Is Lion ready to spend more money and time to reconfigure the frames? I thought they would immediately deploy them on revenue flights i.e. KUL - PER non-stop. Also interesting to note that while Air Asia group prefers to send their A330 to DMK and based them there, Lion group is doing just the opposite.
  5. Not too sure how it works but we have seen them adjusting to noon time flights. Jin Air is inbound as of now. ETA 1204.
  6. Take a step back and look at the bigger picture. PDRM won't open any file to investigate without a proper report right? So why should Mavcom? Anyone have zero experience in filing a police report? Road accidents maybe?
  7. Once AK move to T2, Raya and other GA may have to move to T1 instead.
  8. In KK getting to T1 and T2 isn't the same as getting to KLIA1 and KLIA2 from KUL. While T1 is accessible via a 4 lane highway both ways, there is only 1 way going in and out of T2 which is the same road accessing the Tanjung Aru beaches and resorts. This road is very jam during peak hours and on weekends. The other idea mooted by the government is to shift the airport to a location about an hours drive from the city. This would solve the congestion at KKIA now and unlikely to deter tourist arrival. Now this is HUGE project with potential to create plenty of opportunities - new roads, maybe even monorail etc. Have to keep in mind though that currently only AK is blaming the lack of space, but in the meantime the Korean carriers are mounting more and more flights to BKI. If TF is planning to buy the piece of land, well, the land may already be a part of a bigger and more controversial TAED project.
  9. "You jump I jump, strictly in that particular order"
  10. Rumor FD is dropping DMK - BKI for a second time?
  11. Isn't it obvious fact that neighbouring countries often make up the largest chunk of visitors to any country in the world?
  12. Ok, just a few sharing. Obviously been to LCCT during the heydays. Was waiting for my flight to SGN. Stuck around the main pillar in the middle of the departure hall as everyone was trying to recharge their battery using the wall outlet, which was already with the internal wire exposed. Then as one of the user try to move his phone, spark flew out and everyone's charging stopped. Nope, out of service. Move on fellas. Was waiting for my pickup at LCCT and sat at NOOODLES. Someone just finished their meal and left the utensils there. From a few feet away I can see somehow part of the utensils were little with black bean. I thought who would have brought their own. I soon found out those were actually very hungry flies, and I assume they were really hungry judging from their long period of static state. From then on it was "NO-DLES" for me. No lah, not the shed please.
  13. Supposedly bilateral agreement already obtained, are airlines allowed to start and stop abruptly like the BKI - BWN route by AK?
  14. Politicians only have their own pocket and ego in mind. Forget RAS!
  15. The fighter jet is "u have I have" kind of thing if u ask me as almost all other countries flew their fighter jets during parade. In France they can fly the Airbus, maybe we can fly our flying car soon.
  16. Move the airport further from Putrajaya!
  17. I am quite curious with Changi's claim that items sold at Changi is even cheaper than in town. Is it true?
  18. Don't think they will have that in mind when ordering, but yes, helps Malaysians to slim down. Has TF tried the seat himself?
