  1. QF last B747 (Reg : VH-OEJ) flight, SYD-LAX-MHV
  2. So it was under the schedule passenger flight number MH04. Interesting.
  3. 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.
  4. 25% Khazanah + 25% Air Asia + 25% AF/KL + 25% JAL. Happy days
  5. 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
  6. From the image was the aircraft on A330 / B777 stop mark ?
  7. 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
  8. Don’t forget there is curfew at LHR too ! I think what concerns TF is the longer taxi time burns his pocket 🙂
  9. 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 🙂
  10. Perhaps in this case Airasia is to blame for bringing in too many oversea passenger into KLIA2 ? 😅
  11. One stop service centre for ...... flying cars ! 😬
  12. Perhaps the plan was to sell the jump seats to break even ? 😁
  13. Sorry for OT : What are the factors that dictate an airport slots availability ? Gates availability, runway capability, ground handling resources ? For instance are LHR slots restricted by the runway movements or nos of gates ? How about HND ? Would an airport increase its slot availability by assigning some aircrafts to park at remote bays ?
  14. Good on the proposal. They have vision at least two centuries ahead ! Btw, in the interim the airport may serve as a good place to park spare aircrafts for the airlines during the economic downturns. Or perhaps this is a much needed capacity to cater for the flying cars ?
  15. How is this levy collected ? Cash or charge to the ticket prices ? How about tickets issued before this announcement for travelling after 1st Sep ?
  16. Does MH load up meals for the return regional flights from KUL ?
  17. Awesome ! Thanks for sharing 👍
  18. Wonder how is QR doing on DOH-PEN vv so far ? How's the fare compare to their DOH-KUL vv in general ?
  19. So you can only pack one pair of shoe plus two towels in a plastic bag from Giant supermarket with that baggage allowance ?
  20. Perhaps MH can come up with an innovative buffet style meal ? 😁
  21. As mentioned by many, airlines tend to charge more for O&D tickets originating from their home hubs compared to their transiting tickets. This may partly explain the less competitiveness of MH fares compared to foreign airlines for flights originating from KUL. MH may not be the first choice of many fellow Malaysian in term of the ticket prices but I know at least it is very popular among travelers from Australia to India via KUL. For an airline becomes successful, it needs strong supports from the people of its own country. Many of my Australian & Singaporean friends would choose QF and SQ over other foreign airlines for destinations these airlines serve despite the higher fares. They have faith in the airlines they familiar with. I remember the same happened to MH in the 80s during its glory days. For destinations that MH served back then, the people I knew in Malaysia would pick MH as their first choice and they felt proud flying with MH. Flying with SQ via SIN always seemed as a sub-superior and cheaper option. One of the biggest task of MH management now I think is how to win back the confidence and supports from the fellow Malaysian. I truly hope the day will come back again.
  22. Off topic : can an airline claim compensation for revenue loss if it is proved that there is design flaw by the manufacturer, or the airline has to bear all the revenue loss ?
  23. Perhaps an open air style 'shopping area' or 'pasar malam' something like that, a must-do for foreign visitors to KLIA
