  1. EasyJet to charge for overhead locker storage Standard fare passengers will be restricted to one free underseat bag from 10 February https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/dec/02/easyjet-to-charge-for-overhead-locker-storage
  2. That is the reason why Airasia X is still relevant and important to Airasia - they bring in pax from overseas to connect to the domestic destinations.
  3. I think that if airlines operating in this country charge higher fares, the airports will suffer a big drop in volume. Many people will not be able to fly and will opt to travel by bus and KTM again.
  4. Can AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines stay aloft amid the coronavirus pandemic? Only with major restructuring, experts say According to the government, airlines in Malaysia are expected to take three years to recover from the impact of Covid-19 AirAsia’s combination of lay-offs, diversification and loans is seen as a viable strategy, but analysts say the future is less clear for Malaysia Airlines https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/economics/article/3110741/can-airasia-and-malaysia-airlines-stay-aloft-amid-coronavirus

  7. Have they found buyers for the Dugongs or will they just be sold for scrap? The writing is on the wall for Project Amal. Both Garuda and Lion Air are taking deliveries of the A339 and they will fly their pilgrims direct from CGK (the third runway is operational) from now on. I think that MH knows - lately I see that the dugongs were flying some air tests up the Straits of Melaka, So they may be departing soon...
  8. Why hubs could be back in fashion in post-crisis network recovery While low-cost carriers are likely to be among the early beneficiaries of demand for price-sensitive leisure travel in the early stages of a post-pandemic recovery, the lower levels of overall traffic could also see renewed focus on hub operations. One of the popular premises regarding which carriers might recover quickest from the pandemic is that low-cost operators will drive initial growth, given pent-up demand for leisure and VFR travel. https://www.flightglobal.com/networks/why-hubs-could-be-back-in-fashion-in-post-crisis-network-recovery/141318.article

  18. Sorry to hear you are having problems, Josh. D7 appears to be quite inconsistent with the handling of cancellations and refunds - sounds to me that your case depends on who handles your request and whether you are prepared to accept credit account as the mode for refund. I also note that some travel insurance policies will cover your costs is a pandemic is declared. Anyway, D7 will probably need to liquidate because their situation is too hopeless.
