  1. I was having conversation with a total stranger (a Japanese) in an onsen in Japan two days ago. Using his limited English, he seems like he knows very little about Malaysia. He was very surprised to learn I was originally from Malaysia as he thought Malaysia is a Muslim country. Interestingly the first city name came out from his mouth was Kota Kinabalu !
  2. Is KL’s routing to HKG via KUL partly due to avoid Russia air space ?
  3. I guess nowadays people simply have more options than before. When people have more options they will find one that is more suited to them. A good example is air conditioned buses are common nowadays compared to the old days. If given choices, people will opt for air conditioned bus over non-air conditioned bus for the same route, although there is nothing wrong with non-air conditioned bus. Nevertheless, there are still people go for non-air conditioned bus if the fare or schedule is more suited to them. My longest narrow body flight was TPE-KUL on MH B738 many years ago. The flight was just under 5 hours and I really don't like it. I try to avoid NB for any flight that is more than 4 hours since then. Now I have an upcoming flight SYD-DPS with QF B738 which is just over 6 hours. Will see how it goes ! Sorry for the OT.
  4. I recall I read an article saying Malaysia has a relatively high returning visitors in the visitor numbers each year. This suggests that visitors love Malaysia and would like to come back again. What lacking here is an effective and consistent marketing strategy to attract more visitors especially first time comers. Many sources suggest that KUL is a low yield route to many airlines. Perhaps this is the reason why it is not always in the top priority for major airlines, particularly premium airlines when compare to SIN which is the region financial hub ?
  5. Yes indeed. We have a booking with them for Dec this year. I emailed them in September asking for what option could I have. They replied my flights were still with confirmed status at that time. In order for me to get full refund without any penalty, they advised me to email them again in November that they may have the latest flight schedule for Dec/Jan by then, which I did. I emailed them a few days ago and four days later the full refund amount appears in my credit card statement, no drama. Very impressive especially they are deep in financial problem now 👍
  6. QF last B747 (Reg : VH-OEJ) flight, SYD-LAX-MHV
  7. So it was under the schedule passenger flight number MH04. Interesting.
  8. How full is the apron at KLIA/KLIA2 now with the grounded fleet from MH, AK group and Malindo ? Same goes to SIN. It must be quite a sight especially with SQ group’s wide bodies.
  9. 25% Khazanah + 25% Air Asia + 25% AF/KL + 25% JAL. Happy days
  10. Thanks for the mini TR 😁 ’Technical issue’ happens to every airline. But I guess what makes SQ different from MH in this case is how well SQ manage its ‘damage control’, which MH is lacking of
  11. From the image was the aircraft on A330 / B777 stop mark ?
  12. Yes, I think the closure of Runway 2 is to enable the construction of second parallel runway, intra airside road connection that incl. tunnel and fire station as part of T5 construction
  13. Don’t forget there is curfew at LHR too ! I think what concerns TF is the longer taxi time burns his pocket 🙂
  14. There was one instance instead of purchasing SYD-KUL vv, we went for SYD-HKG with a stopover in KUL with MH, because the ticket price for the later was cheaper 🙂
