  1. I'm frequently on long haul (including A380) and short haul on MH Business / Economy . Cleanliness didn't use to be a problem until around 2013 ? Nowadays seats look as if there havent been wiped down for weeks, and grime on IFE controller is a given (in any class). Yeap, the team of 6-7 people are always there. Problem is I've no idea what they've been doing during the 40 minute turn around time. MasWings planes are downright filthy, though I've never tried Firefly or any other prop service in M'sia. Going to give AK some credit there in saying they at least have clean interiors !
  2. Thanks !!! Didn't know this till today ... even though I've read the name so many times over during my childhood. Makes much more sense now (No access to Google in the early 90's) Flight 714 - Adventures of Tintin
  3. Which day is best for a day trip ? Understand only the last 2 days are "Public-Access" , so would want to maximize the items on display ... not too worried on aerial displays since these are weather / equipment dependent and tough to confirm.
  4. Good info, might take this option unless staying in Langkawi is recommended ?
  5. Does -NAA need ETOPS to cross the Pacific Ocean ?
  6. Since there's this topic, any idea on call sign for Malaysian Army Air Corps 881 Squadron ? (Agusta A109 operators)
  7. For flights, I usually use Google with : 1) Flight tracking (though not very accurate for domestic (Malaysia) sectors) typing: "MH2743" -will bring up flight status 2) Flight options from A to B typing: "flights KUL to SIN" -helps during fare searches, so I know which airline websites to go to
  8. Anyone got offered this ? Minimum offer seems to start at RM100.
  9. Not taking a negative angle on this, but what does it to do with making "the country proud" ? It would of course be something else if MH had arranged chamgpane or a 5-star hotel buffet for their passengers upon diversion
  10. How about the Admirals & Captains at Khazanah ? Not forgetting if "MAS Act" passes, then we may be blessed with a Minister or three to ensure everything runs smoothly
  11. Yeap, had it set that way for the past 2 years (HHonors) but decided to switch to points + points since it never worked for me ! Slightly OT, but does any other FFP offer status matching with Enrich / OneWorld Sapphire ?
  12. Anybody managed to have Enrich miles posted from Seri Pacific (ex-Pan Pacific next to PWTC) or Hilton (HHonors Diamond) offers ? Despite making sure my Enrich number was recorded down , never had it posted once from any hotels.
  13. Was here a few days ago, for me it feels like a toned-down "RIMBA" concept. "Check In" - No Boarding Announcements Sir Entrance Corridor No significant change to toilets. Shower tiles same as before ... Old & Stained New Soda Fountain. Strange they could not buy one with an Ice-Dispenser ala Nandos. Pressure is abit high so drinks tend to spill straight into the bowl of ice provided. On the day, Buffet of Chicken Rice + Roast Chicken + Condiments. Not bad and a nice change. Noddle Station was BeeHoon Soup or Mee Curry. IMHO this is the biggest disappointment in the lounge. Instant Coffee, and with no fridge you can't add milk to Black Coffee. White Coffee was tooo sweet (tastes like kopiko sweets) and Soya Bean Milk was lumpy and tasted closer to flour. Back Counter. Note less choices on this Coffee Beverage Machine New Massage Area ? What I think is a massage area had a lady in MAS uniform stationed inside. Unfortunately she was camping behind one of these recliners, watching videos on her HP (without headphone mind you!) and chatting with the cleaners ever so often. When I was leaving the group of 3 was enjoying a little picnic, complete with handphone music and loud gossips. Perhaps to give first time visitors a "Pasar Malam" vibe ? No attempt or signage to indicate what is offered here.
  14. For inter-terminal transfers, just take which ever train comes first. The ticket given is the "Blue" KLIA Transit one, but will work on either train
  15. Saw her last week parked at KLIA remote stand, near the Tigerair Mandala Airbuses. Looked in need of a repainting since one could make out the "lines" where different fuselage components joined up.
  16. Going through their FB page : 1) @yahoo address for contact 2) Route Map shows Melaka - Kuching but graphic is Melaka - Mukah. No airport there is B734 capable 3) Many copyright infringements Another Silverfly in the making ? The mind boggles as to how people continue to imagine the airlines business as something they can learn on the go
  17. Thumbs up to them. Hopes this sets a precedent for other GLC's
  18. Was booking a flight yesterday. Still lacks user-friendly-ness, ie: When selecting Date, the Calender pops up. Nice ... until you only want a one way ticket, and you'd have to start the process again to tick "One Way" .
  19. End of J concourse as well, where smoking lounge is. But very likely just some ongoing construction / installation work causing the echos.
  20. A 5/10 rating for Qualifying Day IMHO. Will post what little pictures I have tommorow. But overall I'd say the event could do with much better publicity. ie: Free shuttle service within Putrajay that day, but with only ONE sign, which is at one of the bays @ Putrajaya Sentral. Only mention of this service is on putrajaya council website posted just the day BEFORE. Had to search as Help Desk had no idea when the shuttle was going to turn up/interval.

    It's the "verendah" for Check In Area @ KLIA2 In a few months will be seating area for the various eateries ... so not sure if it'll remain free access.
  22. On staffing, they probably don't want to rock the boat too much. Just hope the 10% are selected based on "past performance" and not merely (old) age !
  23. Mine is the RM85 for just qualifying day. Zone A (Ticketpro.com.my) Saw someone on lowyat selling for RM50 Zone D , but ticket dosen't look like the one I have (no color, barcode) so abit doubtful.
  24. What was the final departure time ? If it was 4-5 hours delay, I'd say its quite an over-reaction on the passenger's end. Thanks to MasWings I've had to retime at least 2 meetings a month !
  25. Got tickets to watch Saturday's show Anyone knows what are the 1100-1300 Training Masters ? Not planning to spend the whole day at Putrajaya so want to plan the journey carefully
