  1. Your guess is correct. Qatar Airways used to fly 3x daily, now they are doing twice daily, the other slot will be taken up by Malaysia Airlines. The reduction on QR part was due to aircraft shortage: 28 A350 grounded and 9 B787-9 deliveries are delayed. They are bringing back another 5 A380 and lease 4 ex-CX B777-300ER but it is not good enough.

  3. Six years in the making....finally....... Malindo Air is Batik Air from tomorrow https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2022/04/792384/malindo-air-batik-air-tomorrow?fbclid=IwAR1n33_4rfOz7ziNomellsH-3t_eEuRh6x_qlEAFLAukjW1F3xEoQJ-T7O0 KUALA LUMPUR: Effective midnight, Malindo Air will be known as Batik Air. The Malaysia-based regional airline announced this evening its official rebranding. "The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia has granted a new Air Operators Certificate to Malindo Airways Sdn Bhd to do business as Batik Air with effect from April 28," the airline said in a statement. Malindo Air is a subsidiary company of the Lion Air Group. Other airlines under its stable include Super Jet, Wings Air, Batik Air Indonesia, Biz Jet, Thai Lion Air and Lion Air. The rebranding exercise, it said, was in line with the Lion Group's goal to establish a common identity for the full service airlines within the group.
  4. Seems like first B737-MAX 8 has arrived or should I say has returned home. Skyliner-avation.de is reporting PK-LQK previously 9M-LRC, first Malindo/Batik Air Malaysia B737-MAX 8 flew to KUL last night.

The last time they flew 9M-LRC with Batik Air Malaysia, they received numerous complaints as it was fully Y-class. A lot of customers who bought J-class ticket were forced to downgrade to Y-class. Not a good impression, especially in international operation. Its operation ended after few months. Currently all Lion Air Group 12 B737 MAX fleet (9 MAX-8 and 3 MAX-9) are in all-Y configuration.

  8. AirAsia X expands flight network to Korea, India https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/coa-dismisses-airasias-stay-application-mahbs-psc-suit-and-appeal-against-high-court-summary KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia X Bhd (AAX) is expanding its flight network from Kuala Lumpur with new services to Incheon, Seoul, South Korea and New Delhi, India commencing from April 20, 2022. This follows the resumption of the airline's passenger services to Sydney, Australia, in February. AAX chief executive officer Benyamin Ismail said the airline is confident that its return to these markets will be well received, particularly for those longing to revisit friends and family or for much-anticipated leisure travel.
  9. As expected, episode #430595 Capital A seeks to appeal to Fed Court against dismissals of its bids to strike out MAHB's PSC suit KUALA LUMPUR (April 6): Capital A Bhd (formerly known as AirAsia Group Bhd) has filed motions for leave to appeal to the Federal Court against the dismissal of its bids to strike out a suit filed by a Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) unit over outstanding passenger service charges, as well as the summary judgment granted to the MAHB unit in the case. Its three appeals to strike out the original suit filed by the MAHB unit — Malaysia Airports Sepang Sdn Bhd or MASSB — together with its appeals against the summary judgment the High Court granted to MASSB for a total of RM41.55 million (comprising outstanding PSCs, late payment charges and costs) against AirAsia Bhd and AirAsia X Bhd, were dismissed by the Court of Appeal on March 3. He sure has a lot of money to sue and appeal, no money to make refund to his passengers.......go figure~~~
  10. Wonder Air Seoul will be around after Asiana is fully merged into Hanjin Group's Korean Air Group? Among them there will be many duplicated routes and fleet. Korean Air & Asiana - Full service short, mid and long haul Jin Air, Air Seoul & Air Busan - Low cost service short and mid haul At the same time they are competing with: Aero K - Low cost service short and mid haul - Barely surviving Eastar Jet - Low cost service short and mid haul - Recently sold to new owner Fly Gangwon - Low cost service short and haul - Almost dead Jeju Air - Low cost service short and mid haul - Strong competitor T'way Air - Low cost service short, mid & soon long haul - Strong competitor
