  1. I felt that TF is feeling the pinch because AK's profit is very marginal and with MH's ELF, AK's profit is even more marginal. That's why he is making non sense
  2. AirAsia is inferior now. If today MAS is not the opponent, and another LCC is the competitor, i wonder how AirAsia react. AirAsia just couldn't get over the deals offered by MH. MH rocks!
  3. On my personal view, I think MH and AK should cooperate more to benefit consumers. Since AK is also operating D7, why not start to codeshare with stratergic partner? AK codeshares with D7, so there is no need to disembark, check out, check in again, when D7 launch the kangaroo route flight. AK can also codeshare with MH so that they have more frequency to aussie and uk. Isn't it sounds better for both airlines and consumers?
  4. I dont really agree with you bro. Think again, when MH sold seats for rocket high prices, the people complaint about the sky high price. When MAS slash fares and sell them out, people says MAS became LCC. Majority of the Malaysians have low disposable income, that's why AK works! MH is following the suit because for the domestic sector, MH has to suit the local demand low price instead of premium price with low restrictions.
  5. Maybe It's RM 0 for the fare, not inclusive of surcharges and taxes. Just my 2-cents
  6. I cant even search for fares!! It's pretty true, rather than leaving the 30% unsold seats empty, why not fill the space with RM 0 fares?
  7. Why everyone seems to get the LOW FARES, but the system still appears normal fare for me?
  8. I was extremely SUPRISED when the subtitile says Breaking News in NTV7 just now. After the commercials, NTV played IJ's video.
  9. I'm always delighted to see the immigration and customs officers. They are very polite and friendly. When I came back from overseas, my passport always gives me problem at the autogate. I was directed to the counters. While they are doing the processing, they tend to have a short chat with me which really impress me. Even tHong Kong Airport immigration officers are not that friendly. They have fake smile.
  10. It is the video played 10 minutes before touch down i presume. Far better than CX's video.
  11. Hi, i'm currently expanding Malaysia Airlines's article in Wikipedia. I need information on MH's crew uniform history, how does the uniform reflects Malaysia identity, the colours, training. I would be glad if anyone can provided me with factual information. the best you include the source, if dont have source, just give me the info you have. THANKS! Btw, I also need MH's branding statergies for the past few years.
  12. MH launched its Web check in. Anyone tried?
  13. Jetstar is using satellite terminal in KL, so there is minimal effect on KUL being one of the proposed Jetstar hub. Furthermore, the current LCCT is built on LCC's operations model, where it does not includes transiting.
  14. There is one mechenism in the plane where it analyze the noise, then produce polarisation reversed waveform to cancel the noise by interference. Same applies to noise cancelling headphones where it produce inteference to cancel the noise
  15. You are wrong, AMEX is widely accepted in Malaysia.
  16. MH should have a backup booking system. EK face the same problem, they have no backup system when they launch the new engine.MH should have a backup booking system. EK face the same problem, they have no backup system when they launch the new engine. Moreover, i saw an article saying that MH is going to revamp the webpage, just wait patiently
  17. It seems MH webpage is undergoing some changes. It is showing signs of changes..check out MH webpage,it has been changed to light blue..check out more frequent for new webpage..looking forward for their new webpage..n online check in..
  18. Favorite Airline : MH Favorite Plane : B773ER , B772(Freedom of Space)
  19. TG and CX serve meal boxes on their regional routes..less than 3 hours
  20. This is the mail i emailed to MH Good day, I have some comments on Malaysia Airlines. Firstly, I seriously thinks that Malaysia Airlines is going down hill day by day. One important point to support my view is the axing of some routes and reduced frequency. Malaysia Airlines should focus on premium passengers and not leisure based passengers. Premium passengers needs frequency & service. Take KUL-DXB as an example, MH is flying to Dubai with A330, a very poor product on both Economy and Business. EK is flying with B777-300ER, with excellent product on both Y class and J class. Moreover, the frequency of MH is just 7 times weekly with onward flights to IST. But EK is flying 9 times weekly to KUL without any onward flight, and ever since EK started serving KUL, EK is making money and ever expanding. Moreover, MH has been serving Zurich for 19 odd years, and never tell me MH never made a single sen on this route? If it is, why SQ is adding one more flight to ZRH while MH is pulling out? I believe this route is definitely profitable provided there is enough frequency. SQ never adds another flight without proper research. Back on topic, your can simply reply me with the message, WE ARE SHORTAGE OF PLANE, that's not the way. In order for MH to look profitable after the BTP, MH sold planes. That's why your are shortage of planes for increased frequency. Furthermore, lets bring LHR and EWR into topic. LHR is definitely profitable if MH can manage well. While other airlines are asking for slots at LHR, MH is lowering its frequency. Too bad for Malaysia airlines if they still wants to serve many destinations, but with low frequency. SIA is adding another flight to Sydney, MH used to be the leader in Australasia market, but now it seems more and more airlines are taking over. MH just needs frequency to build up a strong brand. Although for the past few years MH is loss making, but it has successfully built up a brand, creating a benchmark in service excellency. Not for now. MH has long talking about purchasing new planes, press release says MH will decide by December 2007, yet till today, no news from MH. If MH still wants to stick to 5 Star Airline with LCC cost, i felt sorry for MH, MH is planning for a suicide. Even now i wouldn't want to take MH on regional routes. MH no longer serve hot meals anymore, and service drops, MH is not at par with other international brands like SQ, TG, EK and EY, last time I so proud of MH as they are among the best in the world, but not now anymore. I can see MH takes those awards granted, for example the best cabin crew award & 5 Star Airline. MH uses them as advertising gimmick but not for internal motivation so that MH can always having the Best Cabin Crew and a 5 Star Airline. MH HAS TO CHANGE ITS STRATEGY I wish to receive reply from anyone concerned. Moreover, I would be glad if this mail can be forwarded to Idris Jala, since he always said he is open to comments. I am extremely depressed as no replies has been made to me no matter how many comments and suggestions has been made. Sad Case. P.S. Mr Idris Jala, you are no longer where you operate O&G company where service is not important, you are running an REPUTABLE Airline
  21. I speculate the new booking engine for MH will come online once they launch internet check in facility as internet check in facility have seat selection system. I hope it would come online, and the suggestions such as no snackbox, but hot meal prefered or peanuts but no snack box will be taken into consideration. As long as you are willing to pay
  22. However, just for your information, KLIA's design is meant to disperse human traffic so you would feel comfortable unlike LHR.
  23. Was on MH to KIX recently twice, once in economy and once in gcc class, pretty good load, the plane was about 85% full on economy, business was pretty full. Travelled both on november
