  1. Gosh what were they thinking? flew back 6 hours after the first decision to divert and 25 percent IFE screens blanked out.wow.Should have sticked on to canary islands as per their initial decision which was only 900 nm from their location. https://simpleflying.com/air-france-777-10-hour-diversion/
  2. gonna be used t bring home stranded thomas cook passengers
  3. Nice to see charging stations at Klia,was at gate H2 and some was available with seats next to them. Unfortunately for me I charged my phone at the ones where you have to stand by them and when boarding call was made to AKL,just boarded the plane leaving the phone charging behind.
  4. Either that or we tax payers continue paying for MH when the money can be better used for public amenities. I knoe its a bitter pill to swallow but lets face it.its a better run country and a better run airline. Hence lets put our pride aside and see if this sharing of MRO facilities lowers cost,with only 6 A350 not worth stocking up on parts. Ek (bleeding in their own way) or any other airline is not keen to tie up with MH or it would have happened.At least the Singaporeans did.Kudos to them.
  5. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-singapore-air-malaysia-airlines/singapore-airlines-malaysia-airlines-to-explore-wide-ranging-partnership-idUSKCN1TS1A6 The best thing that could happen to MH is they share their resources(MRO) with SQ as well as long haul code share.
  6. Agreed I'd like to know, if you are the CEO of MAB and you are reviewing the contracts and you noticed that the contract is BS, all signed by your predecessors with hefty penalty for breaking the contract. The supplier/caterer knows that they are ripping MAB off, MAB knows that they are being ripped off, the public knows that MAB is being ripped off, what can/are you going to do with the long-term contract? Simple.pay the hefty penalty.And correct the situation at hand.But do it right and award tenders correctly.Many SATS stuff come from malaysia.Saw the water bottle that is given to every pax Y CLASS on sin london bottled and packed in malaysia.
  7. Thanks ong for the amazing pictures.Sitting so far away from Malaysia,its nice to see whats happening there.Thank you again.
  8. Hopefully you too will do some meaning full reading too..
  9. Klia seems to be sliding lower and lower as years go past by on world airport ranking.What are some of the basic ideas that can be implemented for passengers to improve the services.posted by ja singh Chris Tan responded Posted 09 April 2019 - 02:34 AM 1) Place a gigantic teddy bear in the middle of the MTB2) Convert the little patch of rainforest in the centre of the Satellite into a massive waterfall 3) Upholster the benches with Nappa leather 4) Turn the roof of the Satellite into a huge hibiscus garden to showcase our national pride. 5) Replace that wretched aerotrain system with a maglev rail line. 6) Quadruple the PSC so we can beat Singapore in taxes, too. Any other ideas? Hey Chris,well at least I read meaningful publications/articles on aviation and not throw empty bullets/personal attacks at other, like as per your comment/s above to me.And by the way the Boeing CEO did apologize in the end,much later albeit.The problem was that he knew the concerns all along from day 1 ,just you didn't,hence why you asked me to forward the concerns to him.But wasn't me who told him.lol https://arstechnica.com/cars/2019/06/we-are-very-sorry-boeing-ceo-apologizes-for-737-max-deaths/
  10. You're right there. The most concerning design flaw is is due to the big engines and their higher position,the plane tends to pitch up on take off,and to make matters worst the nacelles then tend to work "as a wing" and give the plane "a lift effect", And the lift they produce is well ahead of the wing’s center of lift, meaning the nacelles will cause the 737 Max at a high angle of attack to go to a even "higher angle of attack". Hence the nacelles makes a bad problem worse. It will be interesting to see if the max 10 doesn't inherit this characteristics as it will have a longer fuselage,perhaps, hopefully?
  11. Read the article and you will understand what it proves.
  12. 737 MAX Ferry Flight Blocked From German Airspace (Not Lion air Or Ethiopian Airlines) https://liveandletsfly.boardingarea.com/2019/06/15/737-max-german-airspace/
  13. As I see it you've not read in-depth about the issues plaguing the max 8 and the rush to put in in service to compete with the A320neo,thus cutting many corners.Instead blame the airlines which is very wrong on your part.Yes Lion air has tainted safety record but in this case its a different story all together.Just look at it as a individual catastrophe and read up and you will understand better with with what was/is wrong with the max 8 stall characteristics needing the introduction of flawed software,MCAS t be precise. Here is a list of flaws by boeing and the max 8: 1. Not training or informing pilots/FAA about MCAS,reason being no need to retain so save money,only 1 hour lesson on IPAD for transition from 800 to max.The Lion air pilots never knew this software existed on their aircraft as they weren't informed. 2.Only using ONE reading from the angle of attack sensor to activate MCAS despite having 2 AOA sensors.(Only from the side of the flying pilot) 3.Warning light in cockpit which alerts pilots if the readings from the 2 AOA sensors differ widely (hence if one is faulty as in the case of Lion air) was not installed as standard equipment,but as optional hence airlines would have to pay for it extra for such an important tool of safety. 4. FAA was informed that MCAS only moves the horizontal tail by 0.6 degrees but boeing realised during flight test it wasn't enough to avert a high speed stall and thus changed that to 2.5 degrees without informing anyone including FAA. Here is an amazing documentary on other issues that led to the creation of max 8: I would appreciate if you can watch it and get a better understanding of the situation at hand as the world sees it and after that I would like to hear if you still think that what you wrote above is the reality,Suhaimi.So please watch first and then let us know.thanks
  14. if it says nothing or means nothing (as u say its not widespread issue) then explain why all the max grounded for so many months now and possibly fly only in December as off now.
  15. SELAMAT HARI RAYA TO ALL MUSLIM MEMBERS.
  16. Ate at Nooodles,while waiting for the food,noticed a man had brought over KFC and eaten it there.He then proceeded right into the nooodles galley and washed his hands there, then rinse his mouth and spit it there itself (The toilets are equally nearby to this galley.). Then i noticed the staff started washing their bowls in the same sink! Food was delivered after he finished washing the bowls but had lost appetite by then for my RM20 prawn mee.
  17. more empty talk,no action.Why not invite tenders to develop/run say penang or subang airport by another company besides MAHB?
  18. https://moneymaven.io/mishtalk/economics/boeing-737-max-unsafe-to-fly-new-scathing-report-by-pilot-and-software-designer-ed5jwi2s8kCuGTAgFXR0GA/?replyPage=1 This report sums up the max 8 and the comment by an experienced max 8 pilot says it all....as below. As an industry expert, I have flown the 737 max as a line captain and it was my 12 th type rating. This being said, i can tell you that the MCAS is the tip of the iceberg, this airplane is majorly flawed not only aerodynamically but also technically. Never before have I encountered such strange behaviour from an airliner. Two thing jump to me. AOA don’t fail, we have a series of failure of this part, it is the beginning of the problem. Pilots are now younger and more inexperienced, a bad stall indication system will only exacerbate the situation. Adding a light or more information to digest will only delay the response. The automation is very very weak compare to other Boeing products and especially to its arch rival Airbus. I have flown the Boeing 767 which was desing in theory 30 years passed and it is more advanced that the 737 max. Why? Simply because the 737 max is actually an older design and has shown the limits of what this fuselage could bring. It’s like having an IPhone 10 that you have to plug in a phone jack to get internet. Besides, I have seen autopilot kicking off for no reason and weird roll behaviour in some instances. I asked to be removed from flying the 737 max ever again. I don’t trust this airplane and I have 17000 hours as a line Captain and have been an instructor for close to half this time. Why should the public trust the airplane? I don’t.
  19. if thats expensive u will go hungry on jetstar.Coffee is $5 (RM16),a horrible looking smashed sandwich is $9 (almost $30)!AK hot food prices for RM10 is a bargain at 35,000 feet.
  20. Nobody here really asked for a waterfall for klia tho.but just top notch basic facilities like toilets usb ports on chairs and likes. From skytrax survey we are 45 in the world.Surely not all 44 airports have higher psc then klia right. From now onwards i gonna also smile only cause i realise thats the best we can do as far as klia is concerned.
  21. I do agree that LHR has vastly improve compared to their previous self's.I took qatar airways from one of the terminals and was not expecting what I saw,great improvement!.Was four months back tho during X mas. KLIA was one of the top 5 sometime back now nowhere to be seen on top 10 even. I agree any "excuses excuses".
  22. https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/package-of-newused-a380s-pitched-to-ba-was-uncompe-457443/ "Imagine that we find a suitable used, relatively new A380 whose owners don't want any more – think Malaysian, think Emirates, think Lufthansa," says BA CEO Cruz. "Imagine they give it to us at a really reasonable price. Everything breaks down the moment you start thinking about the inside of the aircraft." MH go give it to them at a price they cannot refuse,after all its accumulating dust at klia..Anyone from MH management here?
  23. Makes KLIA look like 3rd world.lol
