  1. Does that leave just leave -XXC and -XXD parked at KL all wrapped up Bhai?
  2. I would’ve thought Penang-Perth-Penang would be a higher priority than direct flights to KCH! Having just returned from Penang, the amount of pax that transferred onto the same connecting Scoot flight at Changi was noticeable. As a regular visitor to PG, there was plenty of Aussie tourists in Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi on this trip. Also, just out of interest what’s the current longest AK flight in terms of flight time?
  3. Does D7 still have any A330’s which remained stored or in the process of undergoing reactivation?
  4. https://www.travelnewsasia.com/news23/2111-AirAsiaMalaysia.shtml The new AK Perth flights will be operating in addition to the daily D7 flights. Is AK due to take delivery of any additional A321Neo’s soon?
  5. JW, I thought -MXA has also undergone the interior refurb Bhai?
  6. The oldest A333ceo is only 12 years old, whilst the newest -MTO has even celebrated her 10th birthday yet. These A333’s are barely at half-life and fulfil the regional (intra Asia routes) perfectly, hoping these remain in the fleet for those missions. Also as a side note -MTD hasn’t flown since 21 June, is this just maintenance related?
  7. Curious to know with the 737-8 fleet is it just 9M-LRG/H and J which have the 12J/150Y cabins or have any other MAXs been reconfigured yet? Also not too be forgotten their new KUL-PER-AKL-PER-AKL service begins on the 23/8, that’s a mighty long flight for a MAX, when you consider the WAMOS A330’s which operate the same route currently for Air NZ have of flight time of around 7hr15mins.
  8. I know we ran a thread a few years back when the MH A333’s was being reconfigured which was popular, so thought it prudent to start a new one for the MH 738 fleet which are currently undergoing cabin refurbishment from 16J/144Y = 160 seats to 12J/162Y for a total of 174 seats. The new seats are predominantly blue and feature: * Lighter, leaner and thinner seats which now incorporate device/literature holders and AC power + USB type A and C charging outlets. * IFE now streamed to your personal device through on-board Wi-Fi. * Seat pitch of 39 inches in J and 30 inches in Y. See below for some images I took recently on-board -MSA. Feel free to add frames once they are confirmed as refurbished, I’ll start the list off and confirm these 738’s are now completed, although sure there’s several more done. 9M-MLN, MSA, MXN and MXV. Business/J class Economy/Y class
  9. I’m led to believe -MLI has been withdrawn from the MH fleet and is undergoing work in preparation of joining the FY fleet.
  10. Will FY be getting any additional 738’s from the parent company to operate these new services or is there slack in the roster of their current fleet of 4? The email I received today, mentioned that the route would be operated by refurbished 189 seat 737-800’s, interesting it mentioned a specific seating configuration.
  11. One of the aircraft I have followed for many years A320 9M-AQQ, which was the worlds first sharklet equipped A32x series plane, finally pinged on FR24 last night after nearly 2 1/2 years in hibernation and is now back flying in familiar airways. Good to see aircraft returning to the AK fleet, I should really use my gold membership and see where we’re up to with their fleet reactivations.
  12. Brilliant informative post Julius, just one further question what happened to the 2 Thai AirAsia X A330-900’s HS-XJA and -XJB?
  13. Cheers JW, I did some research and found that the AirAsia Group only have the following A333’s in active service: 9M-XBE, XBF, XXF, XXQ, XXR, XXU, XXZ HS-XTC, XTE, XTG, XTH, XTI 9M-XXR is up in Manila presumably undergoing maintenance and hopefully a repaint. Interestingly 9M-VVA has been parked for several months now at KL. 9M-XBE I believe us leased from BOC Aviation, is this the one in the odd high density configuration?
  14. There’s still a number of stored/parked D7 A333’s parked at KL and other airports around the world, some of which are in Air Asia livery and configuration, I’m curious to know why these stored ones aren’t being put back into service first?
  15. I think it often gets forgotten that MH’s A333’s aren’t actually that old, the first one -MTA is only a fraction over 11years old. The J product is only 6 years old and most of them have been repainted in the past 18months. They are the perfect workhorse for regional flights, it’s just a shame that the Y product is so dated compared to their closest competitor. The A332’s are a different story, but they were an opportune acquisition when they became available at short notice, with minimal expenditure on the interiors.
