  1. Hahaha, then you will have boardroom quarrel everyday. Ps: MY code used to belong to US's MaxJet Airways, which went belly up in 2007. Tak ong la
  2. Loke: Prasarana, MAHB yet to submit names of new CEOs PUTRAJAYA: The board of directors of Prasarana Malaysia Bhd and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) have yet to submit the recommended names of those who can be their potential chief executive officers. https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2020/01/17/loke-prasarana-mahb-yet-to-submit-names-of-new-ceos Who want the hot seats??? Hahahaha....Seems like everyone is scared....KPI has changed kot.....
  3. Actually it is not an major issue, MH can negotiate with their lessors to put in a flexibility clause the return the aircraft depending on the market conditions and demand. Pretty sure this has been done before. Or one for one swap with B737MAX delivery. With current fleet of 48 B737NG, the 25 B737MAX is definitely insufficient. Mh will most probably get a good discount for second batch, assuming they didn't jump ship to Airbus.
  4. Considering that their oldest B737-8H6 is only 10 years old this year, it is still pretty young. Good for another 15 years.
  5. Malaysia Airlines offers more European destinations with Qatar Airways "This allows the former passengers to book seats for additional 12 destinations with one-stop connectivity such as Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Vienna, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Geneva, Copenhagen, Brussels, Athens, and Oslo effective January 27." "Qatar Airways passengers will be able to book Malaysia Airlines flights to two additional destinations in Malaysia - Sibu and Alor Setar - as well as two destinations in Indonesia - Medan and Surabaya." https://www.nst.com.my/business/2020/01/556844/malaysia-airlines-offers-more-european-destinations-qatar-airways
  6. Sometimes it all depends on one's luck too. The recent SQ case with A380 RTO twice was handled poorly too. This happened at their home base too.

  8. I saw this absolutely gorgeous B77-200LR, owned by Saudia Arabdia's Prince Mohammad bin Fahd al Saud, parked at Subang Airport last Saturday, did a check apparently it flew into Malaysia from Singapore on 6th January 2020. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/vp-cal Company profile: http://www.aviationlink.aero/gallery.html
  9. That's bad. Malaysia Airlines really need to look at A330 fleet replacement now. Their A332 are really badly maintained especially in premium cabin. Not having a chiller for long haul flight to NZ is a joke. Other than that, I have heard and seen photo of inoperable pulg points. How are we supposed to convince business personnel to fly MH when they can't even get a decent plug point. MH is a premium carrier and should not be racing to the bottom with AirAsia Group. Someone just placed an order for 40 A330neos, and leasing companies has around 260 A339neo on order, MH should be picking up their phone now tbh.
  10. Good to see new airline coming to KLIA, however Lanmei Airlines has been dowsizing their operation, not sure how long will KUL route last or even start at all.
  11. There is a difference between USAF maintanining B-52 for three genrations vs Malaysia maintaining Nuris since B-52 were made in USA and access for parts and services are much easier compared to us. Plus they have hundreds (744 to be exact, few crashes here and there, give take 700+) of B-52 made, a lot of them mothballed to maintain the current active fleet flying. Those mothballed can be reactivated at any given time. Unless Malaysia starts developing its own defence industry, we will forever rely on foreign countries to sell us their defence weapons, systems and jets etc. Singapore has developed this very well and are now exporting their products and service. They are even exporting warships.......
  12. Update: Airbus A320 -214 3306 VT-MLE AirAsia India delivery 02jan20 CMB-DEL ex VT-WAF Source: https://www.skyliner-aviation.de/regdb.main?LC=nav4
  13. Correct me if I am wrong, they will do shortie to Singapore or some regional flight before heading home. I had this last time forgotten which flight I was on, talked to the crew, they said they will do a quick drop at SIN and return before heading home.
  14. Should have ground them long ago, flying coffin for our poor servicemen. Too many of them have died. The government should invest the RM4.5 billion meant for government vehicle fleet to replace these Nuri's. National defence should be priority. https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2020/01/554529/rmaf-phases-out-ageing-nuri-fleet
