  1. Why do they need widebodies for 4 hour flights? Does it look like they may be preparing for a merger with D7? The regional version of the A339 would be suitable but I am not sure if the economics of operating that type of aircraft is as good as that of the A321N unless carrying cargo is going to become more important in AK flights. But that would slow down turnaround times.
  2. Yeah, but airlines are finding supply chain issues and can't get them to return to service soon enough!
  3. I think EK's problem is not demand but aircraft availability. They can't get any more A380s and the B779s are delayed by an unreasonable amount of time. With their flights mostly sold out, they need more aircraft capacity for their routes!
  4. Wow with the SQ seat density so low, it should only be used on higher yield routes. I wonder when will D7 reconfigure these premium cabins. Their fares now are much closer to those on FSCs. So maybe they can make some money with these aircraft!
  5. It looks like MAG has secured a used (ex-SAS) A350-900 MSN 378 that is younger than their existing aircraft (3.7 yrs old). Source: https://www.planespotters.net/airframe/airbus-a350-900-ei-hjz-jp-lease-jlps/34w465

    I think the notion that the Ekspress and Transit are TWO separate services needing pax to use different platforms at Sentral is somewhat laughable. In many countries (e.g. Japan), trains to the same destination (but stopping at different stations) all run from the same platform. So it is up to you to choose which train you wish to board. That way, the frequency of service is higher.
  7. BKI has the same problems as PEN. Although it is desirable to keep them, they have no room for further expansion without massive upheavals in the area. Land acquisition will be very expensive and traffic arrangements will be problematic. It was the same at SZB decades ago - that is why the govt. has resorted to building at a new site further from the city. However, it needs to be well planned so that it can meet the objectives of having a world class airport.
  8. AirAsia X applies to exit PN17 status https://newsroom.airasia.com/news/2023/7/21/airasia-x-applies-to-exit-pn17-status#gsc.tab=0 AirAsia X rises 10% on report of impending bid to exit PN17 status https://theedgemalaysia.com/node/675043 D7 has a lot of catching up to do - hope that they can do that ASAP!
  9. MAG keeps tinkering with its branding and livery. Sounds as if they do not have an agency handling these matters. So which is the definitive livery now? I don't know!
  10. If MAHB think strategically, the new aerotrain will be designed to cater for expansion to the future satellite terminal 2 so that there is no need to revamp it again when that terminal is constructed. It will merely be extended to that terminal.
  11. Loke: Subang airport redevelopment business plan has been approved SEPANG: The Ministry of Transport has recently obtained an approval on the business plan proposal for the redevelopment of Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (SAAS) from the Cabinet. Transport Minister Anthony Loke said the launching ceremony of the airport development plan as well as the design and details of the regeneration would be revealed within the next one month. https://www.nst.com.my/business/2023/06/925823/loke-subang-airport-redevelopment-business-plan-has-been-approved
  12. Their first A321 had IAE V2533-A5 engines and this one has CFM56-5B3/P - is that going to complicate their maintenance?
