    Honestly Malindo hardly features at the top of the minds of most Malaysians. I don't think their impact to the situation is that big.


    40 jets, 7 Million passengers last year...yes no big impact :nea:




    And you forget that Ryanair and Easyjet have huge bases in Germany as well. AB's hub was in TXL and to a certain extent, DUS (both aren't exactly high yielding cities, DUS maybe but not compared to FRA/MUC).


    RM32 per year for every Malaysian for subsidized air travel? Sign me up please ;) Where else can you get 15€ domestic flight on a full service carrier?


    Im living near Berlin so i know the situation very well! Especially when my company have to pay up to 500 Euro oneway for a domestic flight to Cologne from Berlin ;-). Thsi year all airlines will make big losses in Berlin and Düsseldorf too cause of overcapacity. The same situation is now in Malaysia...


    RM32 = Loss from MAS last year / 32 Mill malay people


    2 airlines is not a monopoly, but it is an oligopoly. Which is just as bad.




    The core is:

    MAS is making huge loses

    Malindo never made a profit since they are in the air

    Tony's profits are coming down


    Sorry, but Malaysia is not big enough for 3 "bigger" airlines.

  3. Competition is great for consumers, no? Or do you prefer the good old days of RM800 tickets to East Malaysia?


    2 Airlines are not a monopol ;-)


    Malaysia have 32 million people and 3 more or less big airlines.

    Germany have 83 million people and it was not possible to establish Air Berlin as second big player beside Lufthansa.


    Competion is great yes - and you pay for it with your taxes...around RM32 from every malay for MAS in 2018!


    What use is competition for you if the airlines do not make any profits? That is the basic requirement for a substantial business model or not?

  4. I think it is already doing revenue flights carrying the registration PK-AZM.

    Yes, but which one was it under 9M- Reg...that is the question cause its not 9M-AQX ;-).


    So far planespotters have no info.

  5. 9M-AFT (MSN 3140) was transferred to PAA and re-registered as RP-C8948 on 26 March 2019.


    9M-AQX (MSN 5547) has not flown for a while.




    No that was the first big mistake. It was not 9M-AFT but 9M-AQX. you can see the pics....320 with winglets.

    AFT is an older bird without WL.
