  1. My main gripe about KLIA2 1. Tons of twists and turns, up and down arriving or departing. 2. Very very dark and gloomy. 3. Some departure halls are "hidden" KLIA is a tad better...but not that great either.
  2. Never did like the shape of the A380. Comfort wise...IMHO guess all widebodies have roughly the same comfort level if you are in economy. I definitely dislike the puny windows on the A380. In short, am ok with it going away.
  3. Tried to redeem Big points...but can only be done via credit card payment (not sure why wasn't allow M2U cash)...then get charged RM32 for cc ...hahaha...
  4. The weather has been pretty bad lately. Limited sun.
  5. I guess that is why the Flankers didn't follow the Hornets to Australia for Pitch Black 2018. Our pilots are not getting their flying hours in. Heard the amphibious Maritime birds have not flown in 2 months either.
  6. Noted. I guess the average Joe will have to buy a ticket. Thanks Prestley.
  7. Nice pics Prestley. Those shots can be taken from inside the terminal? Visitors have a clear view of the apron?
  8. Wow...red team reacted quickly.
  9. I am guessing this is a known fact to many of you, but I thought I'd share it anyway. I had a great time spotting in January so I thought I'd do it again. Just returned from Phuket and it was different this time. 1. Aircraft land on runway 09 (west to east) Dec-Apr (www.phuket.com) when the north east wind blows. Landing aircraft are very low in direct sunlight. 2. The sun is behind you if you are perched on the southern side. ==> great pics May 1. Planes take off from runway 27 (east to west). The planes are pretty high by the time they reach the beachside. You will get belly shots, unless you stand much further away with a longer lens. 2. Now, the sun is now infront of you if you are spotting from the southern end. So...I guess you will need to move to the nothern end. 3. The smoking deck in HKT departure is pretty useless at this time too, backlit pics. 4. The sun also runs parallel almost in line with the runway, making for more backlit issues and heat haze. Use "sunearthtools" website to check the position of the sun any time of the year to plan your trips. Hopefully you find this info useful. Just my personal experience, so if my facts are wrong, I do apologize. Just to clarify...my 1st trip was in Jan Runway 09, had a great time. 2nd trip in May 2018, runway 27, not so great.
  10. I do think he playing the Boeing card to leverage pricing on new Airbus jets. I do believe Boeing knows it too, but....who knows?

  12. I had a short trip too....these are some pics to share DSC_0049 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC_0433 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC00985_1 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC_0421 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC_0369 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC_0308 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC00993 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC_0485 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC_0469 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC_0032 by Vick-k, on Flickr DSC00979 by Vick-k, on Flickr
  13. Just to add, the USAF flew in their B52 from Guam's Anderson AFB. DSC_0419 by Vick-k, on Flickr Overall the airshow was "OK". Low hanging clouds, on the first public day, spoilt it for our Flanker as most of the fancy moves were hidden. The SU30MKM did not perform in the afternoon. The slot was taken up by the Jupiter team from Indonesia.
  14. Yes, quite true, didn't think of that. Thanks.
  15. Can MAB use A380s, which have been moved to the charter op with a new AOC, as a supersub?
  16. Does MAB have any plans to change the seating layout? If so, will these planes still be viable as a "super sub"?
  17. Wow, Suzzane's flight flights are amazing! You have even done the MCM to NCE sector. I read about it about that operation in Airliner World and always wondered about the jetsetter who would use that service. Truly amazing.
  18. My updated list is as follows MAS F27, B732 B734 B738, A333, B744, A388 (Sadly...not on a B772) AirAsia A320, A333 Malindo ATR72, B738, B739 Firefly ATR72 JAL B763, B789 SIA B772, A330 Cathay B744 USair A321, B757 Thai B772 Shanghai B738 Xiamen B738 Emirates B773ER, A388 Ryanair B738
