  1. This is why although our passport is certified as ePassport - we can't use the e-Gates in Australia - because they need to have the Surname/Family Name separate from the First/Given Names. This is the format that most other countries use - and actually the individuals name on the Biodata page is listed under Family Name/Surname: Kennedy Given Names: John Fitzgerald In Malaysian context; simply - Name: John Fitzgerald Kennedy So all the time ETA and e-Passport gates in other countries kelang kabut and we can't use despite the convenience.
  2. https://simpleflying.com/qatar-airways-brisbane-australia/ for context..
  3. Perhaps in the case of BNE, new collaboration with a partner like QR who might shift their metal DOH-KUL-BNE vv instead.. rumour was heard that this capacity shift and augmentation might occur.. currently QR operates 1* daily to BNE from DOH.

  5. Long long since I posted anything. Nice subtle hint of a new variation of the Wau on the Tail? I know people will yell, scream, rant and rave "inconsistent branding" - but not bad la :) The industry faces headwinds in the coming months and a tapered growth plan, without over-stating plans and ambitions that would otherwise later to have to be shelved/KIV'd, I think the measured pace at which MH is unravelling itself from seemingly years of "uncertainty" is admirable, respectful and reflective of its foundation years. When people talk about SQ vs MH.. yup - there are differences - but respectively, and from the anecdotes and tales of past.. the "Hare" can always end up being stunned by the "Tortoise/Turtle" at the finish line. 😉
  6. When the truth is uncovered regarding the financing affairs of a particular startup JV in the country in tandem with on going CCID investigations to embezzlement and corruption.. everyone can fly with the one LCC..
  7. Lotsa hi-speed tape for that fix!
  8. BNE Operational requirement calls for the covers to be removed 20 mins prior pushback.. most flight crew walkarounds are completed approximately 40-30 mins ahead of departure
  9. With the space and facilities available at WMKK, it is silly to invest so much capital in an all new facility just because of state economics.. persons from NS would still be able to work at the facility given its proximity.. And ZSPD is home to COMAC, so major international airports can too be manufacturing hubs.
  10. Congrats to a long term MWings member who had the honour and privilege to perform this maiden journey! Well done bro!
  11. Soon 787-10 will appear in the GDS... reckon 118/119 will be nominated during fleet ramp up.
  12. I think you seriously need to reconsider that last statement... what kind of a fool are you to draw such a comparison?
  13. Ah yes, but such farcical antics are but the bread and butter of said national carrier - especially given that said nations aviation regulator had been blindsided by the semi-premium/half-LCD indeterminate breed carriers farcical fleet planning in a year that the international organization of aviation is conducting an oversight review of said nations aviation system that could, should said review be of negative outcome, result in adverse consequences for future fleet acquisitions of the original aforementioned national carrier as a result of restrictions similar to that of a neighboring nation to the said nation in question. Alas - I conjure bullshit arguments for pure entertainment nowadays for it is known to release the inner keyboard warrior responses. Let such flow, now. By the way. On a separate note, such administration of airlines should be carefully reviewed and studied to understand the wider implications of the extensive cost pressures upon airlines resulting from the ever-broadening spectrum of operating business models. Alitalia... Air Berlin... Monarch.. what is happening to Europe is the result of a brewing storm over the last 20-25 years - that seems to be how long it takes for LCCs to completely destabilize their full service compatriots. Who is next? This is coming approximately 16 years after shock-consolidation (9-11 the proverbial nail) and administration in the US industry.. on a trend basis - one could foreshadow a similar instance in the Asia-Pacific in the not-too-distant future, with an erosion of distinction in services amongst the major legacy carriers already apparent; and airlines already venturing into dynamic operating models - departing from traditional business streams whilst trying to buck the trend almost like salmon swimming upstream to spawn... not all are gonna make it past the "bear" market conditions that are inevitable.. and those that do are going to be extremely worn and post flat results for years before the resurgence takes place... and that resurgence is realy hard to predict and understand especially given the violent cyclical nature of the global economy and its sporadic reaction to shock - often knee-jerk as a result of mindless information processing.. Interesting, but somewhat worrying times ahead.. On that note, signing off as an active member from MalaysianWings.com It has been a great number of years - wonderful people met that I shall continue friendships with beyond this forum.. cheers all. Safe landings, always.
