  1. https://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/iasa/ Currently there are only 5 countries in Category 2, and Malaysia is the 6th to join the list. Sad state of affairs indeed.
  2. "Other countries in Category 2 include Bangladesh, Ghana and Costa Rica." ...... 🙈
  3. From MAHB's tweet, the relocation of the duty free shops has now started, so by December, there will be better passenger flow into the immigration area. TF and AK must be happy now. But wait, another round of public bashing for another issue will surface ... https://twitter.com/MY_Airports/status/1192665006422163456
  4. Not 5 only lah, must include the 5 that can be further discussed .... then complain about the other 10 being too slow to be implemented or granted. 🤣
  5. Oh NO! AK will be jumping up at down again especially for flights between KUL and SIN - more delays!! 🤗
  6. My early morning flight to KCH was cancelled last month just a couple of days before the flight. Official reason given: AK stated in the communication that it was due to Runway 3 closure. Part of me feel this is just a cheap excuse to hit out at others. I probably suspect it has more to do with load than Runway 3. I changed flight to Malindo with similar departure time, and load was very light as well. Based on MAHB's announcement, it seems that AK is already in the know and agreed to it - then one may question why the flight cancellation at the last minute as if the runway closure is a sudden unexpected incident affecting flight operations.
  7. I think you are right that in Malaysia, we would go for the cheapest, and not for convenience. A case in point is that some of my colleagues going for a holiday trip chose 6am flight because it was the cheapest while I preferred the 10am flight which was more expensive. I was not prepared to get up at 3am to leave house by 330 or 345am.
  8. I am just wondering - we know this is an annual affair that involves closure of airspace. Would it be too messy to include this in the flight planning - ie making adjustment to the flight schedule right from the beginning rather than retiming at last minute? Selamat menyambut hari kemerdekaan. I am flying home on this friday evening - not affected by the closure.
  9. I took a flight to PEN at 145pm today. But the flight display at A and B gates was still not functioning. There was a whiteboard at the end of the connecting pier, after the shops, before one turns to A or B gate showing all the boarding gates. At the individual gate, the monitor displaying departure flight was still not functioning. This will probably be the last fucntion to go back online I think.
  10. My flight from Penang to KUL was delayed for more than an hour and the captain of the flight made a rather long announcement on the mess in KLIA. He kept saying, "What to do" "What to do" a few times telling us to expect delays in locating our luggage, and the fact that we may have to park at remote bays, and apologising that some passengers might miss their connecting flights ....
  11. see, KLIA is not better than KLIA2, hence there is no reason to reduce the PCS of KLIA2 ....
  12. Not to mention over all these years, they have robbed customers through their processing fees, and now they publicly display in their website asking people to petition against the PSC. What a saint.
  13. This morning domestic departure at KLIA was a nightmare. Long queue everywhere - MH biz class check in counter took me 20min to drop my bag. Then the queue to go through domestic screening snaked all the way to check in counters and continued to Island C where I joined the queue - as usual no one to help man the queue and there were some confusions, and, as usual, many cutting queue "innocently". But the line moved rather quickly, and took about 20min to go through. Then when I boarded the plane to Penang, the captain announced that they had to off load bags for 7 connecting passengers from international flights as they could not make it due to long queue at immigration. Is this normal for morning 8-830am departure? or is it due to the after school holidays rush? Or is KLIA over its capacity? or it is just due to the usual tidak apa attitude, and inefficiency of MAB and other agencies based in KLIA. This reminds me that I should plan to go to KLIA earlier if I have an early morning departure.
  14. New Biz class amenity kit, refreshed cabin and wifi on A330 too. The new amenity kits look great, and I wonder how the "renewed soft furnishings" would look like. Good to now there are more improvements. https://www.malaysiaairlines.com/my/en/news-article/2019/malaysia-airlines-launches-refreshed-cabin-in-flight-offerings.html
  15. I can imagine the confusion for check in - domestic at one end and international at the other. I like the B and C rows and there is always a choice which row to go to when one row has a longer queue. I thought occupying B, C for economy and D for premium passengers make better sense as one see the presence of MH in one section of the airport. If there is a need to move, I was thinking maybe retaining C might be better (C, D, and H) rather than having B, D and H. Is Row H any closer to the international departure? Just wondering the reason/logic behind the move.
