  1. But I don't see your vote leh?
  2. Comfort food away from home. Is the McD at airport same management as the rest of the country? I'd always thought they are different because of pricing & promo difference.
  3. I knew I read this somewhere... https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2015/04/06/proton-just-as-good-as-bmw-putrajaya-says/873315
  4. Stop generalising Malaysians. Not everyone complaint about 5 - 6 hours in a narrow body.
  5. I can see only a hand full of airlines can negotiate with airbus to trade in their A380 with new orders. LH is one. EK is definitely the other. Too big of a customer to lose.
  6. I'd prefer Family Mart to AK. The best soft ice-cream EVER!
  7. Perhaps there is a need to ground all Max8 for the time being?
  8. So meaning to say FY will get jets and based in KUL instead of SZB.
  9. After LIMA can drop by HKT for a day or 2.
  10. Could also mean that SQ may have priority in acquiring NOK. This way SQ gets the NOK network, change the brand to Scoot. Crew familiarisation won't be a problem as SQ's subsidiary MI is Boeing 737 user.
  11. Just to put a closure this matter. After AK turned down my claim twice I decided to file a complaint with MAVCOM on Dec 29. On Jan 7 AK acknowledge that they have received the complaint from MAVCOM, and would initiate investigation. On Jan 14 AK to allow the refund of airport tax to my credit account. It was subsequently done on the 22 Jan with validity until Mac this year. 6 months from my initial flight. Total amount less than RM20.
  12. I made a mistake flying back from PVG to KUL and then back to BKI. Had to clear immigration after arriving KUL since its not a single booking. As I was rushing to meet up with a friend, by the time I reach the entrance I was soaked in my own sweat! So the lesson is don't rush. Enjoy an ice-cream or 2. They have the best soft ice-cream at Family Mart. Had 1 before you enter the mall, and then another when you exit.
  13. Plenty of cheatline livery during then. Continental Airlines and Eastern also adopted the design. Much like baggy pants fashion.
  14. It can be done if Miri could offer better connection, say from Eastern China/Korea/Japan, to Australia/New Zealand. However you will be up against the proven BKI airport and then BWN.
  15. So in a couple of years we'll see the stubby A380 sitting along side the concorde. Sad sight indeed. Anyway the race to fly on as many operators as possible is now on.
  16. AirAsia says MAHB declined mediation bidhttps://malaysia.yahoo.com/news/malaysia-break-away-suspicion-distrust-003730526.html
  17. If that is the case why not a small navy/police post, rather than an airfield. Mind you the biggest threat is from the town of Sandakan, Lahad Datu and Tawau which is situated much to the east. While they have airports there due to higher demands for civilian flights, air defence still pretty much depends on assets based in Labuan and KK.
  18. Who doesn't like parents with deep pocket? For sure no taxpayer would lament about bailouts. Earlier I had my doubt on whether OD would do well as initially their position between low fare AK & classy MH didn't help at all. The budget traveler would normally pick AK while those who can afford a bit of luxury would opt for MH. IMHO it is still the mentally with majority Malaysia these days. And then there was the rumor about a strong behind the scene player. A political venture which may or may not work out. AK has always target MH in the earlier promos as far as I can remember. OD just focus on getting their acts right with there route/aircraft/service. A quick check for flights reveal that BKI - KUL return in May would cost 700+ on MH, and 500+ on OD & AK. I can't figure out it is OD selling it cheap or AK going expensive. In the end AK is a business entity. If possible they will sell FSC fare at LCC service level.
  19. Anyone flown on the first gen D7 A330? Those that can't recline but the seat slide to the front? I'd prefer MH/OD B738 over those anytime.
  20. Surpirisng that any airline would cancel new route faster than AK!
  21. This is a good move because this kind of lingering issue has been going on since KLIA2 started operation. I would really like to see how it would turn out, and who's side will the government will be on.
