  1. Sorry BKI thread started slow. 09/01 - Regular in SZB?
  2. Geez, you know how many would die for a trip just to experience it?
  3. Was arriving BKI from DMK on Christmas day and there were 2 counters for local, 6 for foreign passport. If that's is not enough they decided to queue everyone thru the baggage X Ray machines and the Green Lane was closed. Some people very hungry oh...
  4. Haha, that's one of the feature of Big Points redemption. U can't use on direct debit payment iirc.
  5. They can stop collecting, but they got to pay. So these are the money we paid to the airport facility that AK kept, and resulted in lack of maintenance?
  6. Updated 1/1/2019 AK - A320 MH - DHC-6-300, F50, B734, B738, B772, A332 (MK series), B744, A359 BI - A319/A320 FY - ATR72-500/600, B737-400 SQ - B777-200, A380 3K - A320 D7 - A330-300 KL - B777-300ER, B777-200 CX - A330-300, B777-300 KE - A330-200 QR - A330-300, A330-200 PG - A319 OD - B737-900ER (22/03/2013 first flight BKI - KUL) UO - A320 (27/07/2014 HKG - BKI, Siu Maai) RJ - B788 TZ - B789 KU - A343 (last commercial flight for CGK - KUL) TG - B747 LJ - B772 PK - B77W (inaugural KUL - BKK - LHE, only stopped at BKK)
  7. Update! Despite lack of planning 2018 came out rather interestingly. JAN - my turn to fly the A350 from BKI - KUL and back the next day. Apparently I'm not the only one as Flee came on the day that I would depart, and then Sam took the one I flew back. Maybe we should sync better next time. MAC - my second spotting trip in 6 months to Tokyo. Thanks to Ryotaro Shinozaki-San & Shingo Matsuo-San who helped to make this a memorable 4 days 3 nights trip. MAY - the chase for Xanadu Perdana 1. MAY - JUL - shoot Small Planet to your heart's content as they started scheduled MFM - BKI flight. Little did we know that they would go burst by year's end. JUNE - last shoot of Royal Brunei A342 V8-001. Shortly after a touch-and-go session in BKI the plane flew to LDE for storage. OCT - another honour to cover Malindo's inaugural BKI - KCH flight with Sam. However the star of the day would be Xiamen Airlines' Skyteam parked just next to Malindo. NOV - striking out another to-do by doing a solo 3 days 2 nights trip to ICN. Also first time on Jin Air's T7. DEC - adding another airline to the list before year's end. Flew PIA's inaugural KUL - BKK - LHE, but only stopped at BKK. Then flew back from DMK to BKI on FD's 320 NEO. Best part was with my 12 year-old throughout the trip. Have fun flying everyone!
  8. Ok, Got a reply from AK stating that my refund is rejected due to one of the following reasons. Your booking consist of one or more future flight(s), or; (this was my return flight from KUL) the guest has boarded this flight, or; (I boarded the first sector KUL -BKI, but not the second one) the booking number is incorrect; or (booking number is certainly correct) more than 6 months from the date of departure (my flight was mid October) When I file for airport tax return I did specify the flight number, which was compulsory. Is it recommended to have 2 separate booking in cases like this? Anyway, I am trying to file another claim and see how it goes.
  9. Seems like AK is changing the claim form slightly. There is no need to submit lengthy explanation, presumably they would be able to check your booking and whether you actually boarded the plane or not. I made a claim on the 16/12 for no show to claim back the airport tax. Got a reply today but not much information is provided i.e. booking number as I have another claim in progress. Also, not sure of their intend when they ask for my user name. Thought my email will be good enough since it's unique? I did provide my membership # when submitting my earlier claim. On another note, I had a no show for a QR flight in Oct so I wrote in to inquire about the airport tax. Settle within 2 weeks refunded back to my credit card used for the initial booking.
  10. Seems like Batik Air has stopped their CGK - BKI flight since 28 Nov. From FR24 last active flight was 25 Nov, and no flight since then.
  11. Will we sees some of the aircraft being transferred to Malaysia as they are rapidly expanding/increasing frequency over here?
  12. It's just a penalty for past practice. Nothing mention on hefty penalty should be practice remains.
  13. No matter what we say online reviews like this will continue to garner viewership, whether airlines, hotels, even cameras and hanphones because we don't have enough experience to help us decide. Now for this case we'd probably flown more flight on MH than this blogger's flight combined, so I trust my own judgement. Unfortunately for other airlines, I will most likely decide based on online reviews.
  14. I recall on AK/D7 flights the crew would thanks the pax by bowing in front just before landing. Do they still do that?
  15. Not really bad. Did BKI - NRT a couple of times. 7 hours? No complaint.
  16. A few of us were there to catch a glimpse of this rare aircraft. The sun was playing hide-and-seek though.
  17. Not the third sound in Cantonese ya...
  18. So far from middle-eastern airlines we have :- EK - A380/B77W QR - B788/A346/A333 TK- A330 EY - B77W/B789 WY - A333 SV - B789
  19. Serious? Seems like their morning flight has been consistently 788. Which flight was swapped?
  20. 28/10 Xiamen Airlines B-5302 departing to XMN as MF8662, having arrive earlier as MF8001 from PEK. Previous MF operated FOC - BKI using flight number MF8001 and MF8002. Nocturnal bird no more. Jin Air started deploying one morning flight to BKI arriving about 11:20am as LJ65 and leave 1 hour later as LJ64. Previously they deploy both LJ61 and LJ63 at night with one hour between each departure. Currently LJ65 is using the B738 whereas LJ63 uses the B777.
