  1. Yup, me too. Received 9 mails from them offering same discount. They give unique promo code for next booking.
  2. Suzanne and BC Tam, thanks for advise. I was think they will operate same aircraft for BI872 and BI825.
  3. Planning for booking KUL/BWN/BKI via B787 on this date. Just scared if 1st flight delayed, so is it ok to proceed with only transit time 1 hour 45 minutes?
  4. Yup and RM480 (incl tax) in certain date on Sunday. Both return equipment via B787. BKI/BWN/BKI at RM251 and RM461 (incl tax)
  5. At the moment KUL/BWN/KUL return fares much more cheaper rather than BKI/BWN/BKI.
  6. Just tried dummy booking for MH Enrich redemption for return trip KUL/HKG (First Class) and HKG/KUL (Business Class) via A380. 1. If full miles redemption it's quoted per pax 68250 miles + MYR650 (surchages & taxes) = Total to be paid 68250 miles + MYR650 2. If cash + miles redemption (consider 34000 miles used) it's quoted per pax 34000 miles + MYR2398 (flight price) + MYR650 (surchages & taxes) = Total to be paid 34000 miles + MYR3048 Tried if purchase normal booking same route and class it's quoted per pax Total Air Fare: MYR4699 So which one better?
  7. Triple 3x MH Enrich miles rewards promo starting on Malaysia Day 16 Sept until end of the year for domestic sector really awesome.
  8. TAM Airlines to join oneworld on 31 March 2014 TAM Airlines, a company related to LATAM Airlines Group, will join oneworld® with effect from 31 March 2014, adding the leading carrier in Brazil – Latin America's biggest economy and largest market for air travel demand – to the world's leading quality global airline alliance. Confirmation today of its oneworldjoining date comes on the same day that LAN Colombia – which is, like TAM, a company related to LATAM Airlines Group - becomes part of oneworld, offering the alliance's full range of services and benefits, from the start of operations this morning. The addition of TAM from 31 March 2014 and LAN Colombia today will mean all passenger airlines in LATAM Airlines Group, Latin America's leading airline group, will be part of oneworld, the world's leading quality airline alliance. LAN Airlines has been a full member of oneworld since 2000. All its other passenger airline affiliates have subsequently joined the alliance as affiliate members – LAN Argentina, LAN Ecuador, LAN Peru and, from today, LAN Colombia - and now TAM from 31 March and with its Paraguayan affiliate to follow on a date yet to be confirmed. This consolidates oneworld'sposition as the leading alliance for flights within Latin America and between the region and both the United States and Europe - the two most popular destinations for South American international travellers. TAM's entry into oneworldwith effect from the first flights on 31 March 2014 will follow immediately upon its exit from the Star Alliance with effect from the final flights on 30 March 2014. The airline and oneworld are taking every effort to ensure that the alliance transition is as seamless as possible for customers. TAM underlined today that all members of its Fidelidade frequent flyer programme will maintain all points earned and their respective tier status, according to the applicable conditions of the programme. A thorough communications plan is being developed to brief them in detail on all the benefits and privileges they will receive as part of oneworld from 31 March – including the ability to earn and redeem points on any of the alliance's member airlines. These include leading brands from each global region. Besides LAN, they feature American Airlines from North America; airberlin, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia and Russia's S7 Airlines from Europe; Royal Jordanian, from the Middle East; Asia-Pacific's Cathay Pacific Airways, Japan Airlines, Malaysia Airlines and Qantas; and some 30 affiliated airlines with other recruits also lining up to join in the months ahead. The 140 million members of these established oneworldairlines' frequent flyer programmes will also be able to earn and redeem awards and tier status points and receive all other oneworld privileges on TAM Airlines from 31 March – and on LAN Colombia from today. As it becomes part of the group on 31 March 2014, TAM's network will be covered by oneworld's range of alliance fares – the most extensive offered by any of the global alliances, including the market-leading oneworld Explorer round-the-world fare and its Visit South America pass. TAM serves 60 destinations in 16 countries in Latin America, the USA and Europe, with a fleet of 161 aircraft operating 800 departures daily. It boarded 38 million passengers in 2012. Since its launch in December 2011, LAN Colombia has quickly established itself as the second biggest airline in South America's second largest economy. In total, it serves 24 airports in four countries with a fleet of 24 aircraft operating 130 departures a day. It boarded 3.7 million passengers in 2012. Four of oneworld'sestablished members – American Airlines, British Airways, Iberia and LAN – currently serve a total of seven destinations in Brazil. TAM will expand the alliance's coverage of Brazil, one of the world's most rapidly developing economies, to 42 destinations. Across South America, oneworld'sestablished member airlines already serve 71 destinations in 11 countries. TAM and LAN Colombia add another 56 airports in the region to that network, giving oneworld one of the most extensive alliance networks serving the continent. Worldwide, with TAM, LAN Colombia and the other airlines lining up to join, oneworld will: Serve almost a thousand airports in more than 150 countries, with 14,000 daily departures. Carry 480 million passengers a year on a combined fleet of more than 3,200 aircraft. Generate US$ 140 billion annual revenues. The addition of TAM from 31 March and LAN Colombia today represents a cornerstone of oneworld's biggest membership expansion yet. Other elements elsewhere in the world include: The addition of Malaysia Airlines, one of this industry's most frequent award winners, eight months ago, further strengthening oneworld's position in South East Asia, one of the fastest growing regions for air travel demand. The induction on 30 October 2013 of Qatar Airways, the only one of the "Gulf Big Three" carriers slated to join any of the global airline alliances and one of the world's fastest growing and most highly rated airlines. This will make oneworld the leading alliance in the Middle East, one of the world's fastest growing regions for air travel demand. The introduction early next year of SriLankan Airlines, as the first airline from the Indian subcontinent to join any global alliance, which, with Qatar Airways, will make oneworld the leading alliance in the region. In addition, US Airways proposes to switch from Star to oneworld as part of its planned merger with American Airlines, subject to necessary approvals. oneworld'sCEO Bruce Ashby said: "As the leading airline in Latin America's biggest economy, Brazil, TAM's addition represents a significant landmark in oneworld's journey to establish itself as the first choice airline alliance for frequent international travellers the world over. We look forward to welcoming TAM and its customers on board the world's premier global airline alliance with effect from 31 March next year." TAM Airlines' CEO ClaudiaSender added: "We want to introduce Brazil to our new partners and welcome them into our country. In the coming months, we will continue working to ensure a smooth transition for everyone. We also want our passengers to learn about the benefits, connections and products offered by oneworld so they can travel the world with us."

  20. Malindo to fly to Mumbai, south Indian destinations NEW DELHI: Hybrid airline Malindo Air has received permission to fly to Mumbai as well as a few south Indian destinations, said a report. It was earlier reported that the airline would commence flying the Kuala Lumpur-New Delhi route soon. Malindo Air will deploy the Boeing 737-900ER aircraft on the Kuala Lumpur-New Delhi route, bundling the sector with a 15kg baggage allowance, meals and in-flight entertainment, TTG Asia reported. "The airline is also likely to fly to Kolkata, Trivandrum, Chennai and Bangalore soon," Survottam Travel's managing director Rajendra Churiwala was quoted as saying. He said the new flights are likely to be a hit in the market as clients will use Malindo not only for travel to Kuala Lumpur and Kuching, but also to Singapore. This is given Malindo's price competitiveness compared with airlines such as Singapore Airlines and SilkAir. Malaysia drew 780,000 tourists from India last year.

  23. Wow, Firefly new seat's on ATR72600 looks awesome. Firefly welcomes its first ATR 72-600Friday 05 July 2013 Malaysian carrier starts fleet upgrade to rapidly expand its route network. Firefly, Malaysia Airlines’ subsidiary carrier has today taken ownership of its first brand-new ATR 72-600. The aircraft is the first of 20 latest generation firm ATRs, plus 16 options, ordered by Malaysia Airlines in December 2012. Firefly currently operates 12 ATR 72-500s, and with the arrival of the new ATR 72-600s will almost triple its exclusively ATR 72 aircraft fleet, taking the total to over 30 aircraft. With this significant fleet expansion Firefly will rapidly increase capacity on their domestic network augmenting flight frequencies on routes to key destinations in Subang, Penang, Kota Bahru and Johor Bahru. The airline will also be able to boost their regional offering ensuring its customers better connectivity within the ASEAN network, -specially Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore-, thus reinforcing the position of Firefly in these markets and key business routes. The new-generation ATR-600s are equipped with a new full-glass cockpit and feature a high comfort layout seating 72 passengers with larger overhead bins. In addition to the performance advantages and enhanced comfort, these aircraft offer an improved operational flexibility for the airline. The freshly delivered ATR 72-600 will enter into service this month. The aircraft's first commercial flight should take place following its arrival in Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang on 12 July, 2013, when the ATR 72-600 takes off for Johor Bahru, Malaysia. “We have been looking forward to this day for quite some time now. We are thrilled to finally receive our new aircraft. Our exclusive ATR 72 fleet has allowed us to develop a unique high frequency network out of Subang, Penang, Kota Bahru and Johor Bahru. Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle communities, their population and economy will also capitalise on this important investment”, says Ignatius Ong, Chief Executive Officer of Firefly. "We are very proud that the new ATR aircraft is here to launch Firefly’s fleet expansion,” said Filippo Bagnato, Chief Executive Officer of ATR. “It is great to see the ATR 72s play an integral role in Firefly’s success. The airline is exclusively relying on the ATR 72s to expand its business and its presence as a major actor of the regional aviation in South East Asia. The partnership is being very fruitful, and Firefly can definitely benefit from the many advantages of the ATR aircraft.” He added “We are pleased to introduce today the latest generation aircraft ATR 72-600 into the Malaysian market./ This aircraft offers the best operating economics of any aircraft in its seat category, as well as top-class standards of comfort and cabin interior designs”.
