  1. AKL ground handling is outsourced. I forgot the name. Yes, the MH current timetable is cracking at its seam, insufficient aircraft, insufficient crew, both ground and air), insufficient engineers. I don't think the management gives two hoots about it. Everyone is staying put just because they have family at home and to put food on the table. I don't expect the current staff (minus the management) who bear the brunt of the passengers/ clients daily, will walk the extra mile for the company and I totally understand this since it is a shithole company to work in.
  2. Btw, 9M-MLJ was delivered few days ago with this new cabin.
  3. 9M-FYE MSN 840 left for Brisbane earlier this month. Now stored at Brisbane Int'l Airport. Caught by Port Nick doing test flight on January 9, 2023 prior to return to lessor ACIA AERO LEASING.

  5. And just like that.....FY's B737-800 fleet is getting a cabin makeover same as MH. https://www.facebook.com/Firefly/videos/5807757882664978
  6. The dual class B737-800 and B737-MAX8 has 45" for J class and 32" for Y class. 12J 150Y= 162 total. Single class B737-MAX8 has 31". 180Y.
  7. Cabin crew and engineers. Amended my post.
  8. and lack of qualified personnel. But I don't think the public is lining up in droves though to put their butt on OD's ironing boards.
  9. Insider's comment: MH does not have enough manpower for ground crew and suffers from severe lack of equipment at the moment. The turnaround time for most MH flight now are just impossible for the limited crew, especially in KUL. A lot of experienced MH ground crew have been poached by ME3, and SQ recently. Good grief when there is any major festival period. CNY and Raya are coming....... (PS: The actual story is longer and more detailed, but I am not in privy to talk much in public space)
  10. LOL.....Royal Brunei is also using A320neo for its BWN-MEL non-stop flight, clocking 7 hours 10 mins on its return leg. At least RBA has IFE and complimentary meals, Batik Air has literally nothing. You need to purchase luggage allowance, meals and there isn't any wifi IFE to stream. I wonder how well will its new business model pans out in long run. They are launching many new mid-to-long haul routes.
  11. "Congratulations to Batik Air on achieving this amazing feat, flying a Boeing 737-800 from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur (ground distance: 6,306 km) in a flight time of 8.12 hours! We are determined to support the airline in ensuring their fleet is well-maintained to continue achieving more impressive records!" https://www.facebook.com/DviationGroup/photos/a.271871812913263/5220525778047817/
  12. And they shipped kimchi from South Korea, cause the local made kimchi was awful for them. LOL!! Where are the rich US, Briton and Russians!? (joking here)
  13. KA set-up was quite different from MH+FY and SQ+MI/TR actually. KA holds several landing rights to several airports in mainland China which explains why CX Group was reluctant to fully integrate it pre-COVID era. If they were to merge earlier, they would have lost some, if not, majority of the landing rights. CX only had Beijing and Shanghai, KA has all those other cities. Hence CX's leverage on tis uniqueness to be admitted as oneworld affiliate member. Cathay Pacific Route Map as of July 1, 1996
  14. Without a doubt, Thailand is a much more fun place to be, they are so much better in marketing their culture, food and tradition. Not forgetting those modern ones ICONSIAM, Pratunam Mall, rave parties etc. Malaysia is just meh shopping centres....makanan also cut throat prices..... The A380 will not be coming back due to cost prohibition unfortunately. Four have been advertised for sell but no taker, the other two owned airframes are parked openly without protective cover for past three years. Only three A333 out of six planned returned to service, the rest 12 have been sold or returned, some have been picked up for cargo conversion (really crazy as TG has some of the youngest A333 out there). The six B772ER have returned as planned. The last update was they will only get four additional A359s, initially two, things may change though as April approaches due to Songkran. Good to see B787 picking up more order. TG fleet could use some expansion to maximise the advantage.
  15. Just as what I have suspected. Under Ignatius's tenure, FY seems to be forging its own direction instead of aligning with MH's, not sure if this was the MH Group management decision. I found their timetable back in October 2011, quite substantial hubs in PEN and JHB.
