  1. Of course you can, provided it's low season + plenty of unsold seats when you make your booking.
  2. PETALING JAYA: AirAsia will begin its first international route to Macau from its Kuching hub beginning Nov 15. The flights will commence with three weekly flights on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. According to a statement from the budget airline, the move was in accordance with the company's future route expansion plans and to prepare the East Malaysia hub for global low-cost travel. Those interested can book through www.airasia.com from Thursday to Oct 31 for special promotional fares from RM39.99 (excluding airport tax, fuel surcharge and fees) for the travel period between Nov 15 and March 29, 2008. http://www.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?f...&sec=nation
  3. That's easy, the gorgeous uncle in suit, aisle seat (right below the camera lens in the pic).
  4. About SZB - BKI, another concern would be - does ATR 72 have enough range to make it nonstop?
  5. The biggest winner of course is the traveling public who have the 2nd options on which KL airport they want to depart/arrive.
  6. Just received the latest newsletter from AK. Apparently besides the KUL-HKG route which we already know earlier, they will launched KUL-Guangzhou pretty soon as well. http://www.airasia.com/nl/nl071023-en.htm
  7. I believed is the chartered Haji flight when AK won the contract from Tabung Haji.
  8. It's great Izanee! You made lots of good points in your letter and I particular like this : "MH seems to think that passengers will always keep coming to them for business despite what they do" For ages, this is exactly how I felt about MAS.
  9. It's no brainer (unless your MH miles about to expire), just go for SQ and save the MH miles for future redemptions.
  10. If there's huge demand they would have add frequency and definitely won't settle for 1 flight per day. If my memory served me right they used to operate 2 flights per day but obviously right now the afternoon flight been cut.
  11. abstract from Bername http://www.bernama.com/aviation_news/news....648&lang=en Leong said with the approvals, Firefly will be expanding to serve six domestic and nine regional routes out of Penang International Airport, 12 domestic and 13 regional routes out of Subang as well as seven domestic and 14 regional destinations out of Senai International Airport in Johor Baharu. Can't see to see them launching one by one the 12 domestic and 13 regional flights out of Subang.
  12. I think he is referring to the Plane Registration (9M-MGK...).
  13. Although they said booking for SZB-PEN route will start on 19 Oct (tomorrow), but actually it has been loaded in the system and can start your booking now. Just tried out and it works.
  14. Just saw their schedule for SZB-PEN, one early morning + another in the evening flights, good timing and I'm sure they won't have much problems to fill up their seats. http://www.fireflyz.com.my/flights/schedule/
  15. Cabin of the SIA A380 has been revealed: To watch online click this: http://s233.photobucket.com/albums/ee238/S...5_SIA-Cabin.flv To download, click this: http://www.a380delivery.com/uploads/assets...5_SIA-Cabin.flv Plenty of nice videos has been uploaded as well (if you can't open the file, just download flv player online will do, it's free) http://www.a380delivery.com/uploads/assets/singapore/videos/
  16. Definitely need a stop like Darwin before A320 can go down any further. KUL - OOL is 7 hours non-stop while KUL - SYD is 8 hours.
  17. About the mug maybe they just want to follow Starbuck, thats why using mug. About the catering, no comment on TG but SQ catering definitely been for more superior in comparison with MAS for years.
  18. Reduce washing under the name of being more environmental friendly although the actual reason might be something else (cost cutting like some said).
  19. Honestly speaking for those who keep complaining about AK etc etc etc my suggestion would be: 1. Stop flying with them since you already pissed, just pay more & fly with legacy carriers, end of story, full stop. 2. Think about the positive side of AK (savings on $$, brand new A320 etc), lower your expectations, keep flying with them.
  20. Apparently they failed to sell the first class suite at S$380K, only S$153K - the highest successful bidder on the suite. A380 Charity Auction Raises Over S$1.9 Million 13 September 2007 Bidders have opened their wallets with generosity and enthusiasm to support the Singapore Airlines A380 First Flight Charity Auction. With almost all seats now sold, the total committed to charities from sold packages so far is approaching S$2 million. Just 24 seats, listed especially for ‘last chance’ bids, remain for those who are still keen to be part of this historical flight. The seats, in Business and Economy Class in both directions, and Singapore Airlines Suites on the Sydney-Singapore leg, will be open for bids until the end of this week. Throughout the two weeks of the auction – conducted on eBay, the world’s largest online marketplace – around 2,000 bidders pre-qualified by paying a security deposit, while several thousand others registered, so far buying 638 seats on both legs of the flight. All the proceeds raised from the auction will be split three ways, between Singapore and Sydney charities, and a global humanitarian organisation: * One third to Singapore’s Community Chest * One third between the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, both in Sydney * One third to Médecins Sans Frontières, also known as Doctors Without Borders. Cheques will be presented to the beneficiary organisations in conjunction with the First Flight on 25 and 26 October. Singapore Airlines Chief Executive Officer, Chew Choon Seng, thanked the thousands of bidders who participated, and congratulated those who were successful in their bids. “The auction has provided many aviation enthusiasts around the world with the opportunity to bid to be a part of history. We are pleased that the charities will benefit meaningfully from the proceeds of the auction". “We thank all participants who demonstrated such enthusiasm and generosity. Now we look forward to the delivery of this magnificent aircraft and introducing it into commercial service” Mr Chew said. SOME INTERESTING FACTS A record was achieved for the sale of the first Singapore Airlines Suites package on the Singapore-Sydney flight, which sold for US$100,380 (S$153,000). The bargain of the auction was a single Economy seat from Sydney to Singapore, which sold for US$560 (S$853). One Singaporean purchased three Singapore Airlines Suites, two Business Class seats and an Economy Class seat on the Singapore-Sydney sector, paying US$56,000 (S$85,280) for the six seats. Australians made up the largest nationality of successful bidders (15%), followed by Singaporeans (11%), Britons (6%), Americans (4%) and Germans (3%). The other 60% come from all over the world. Successful bidders ranged in age, from a San Francisco man who will turn 22 on the day of the flight, to a 76 year old from Vancouver, Canada. The auction was one of the largest charity auctions, and among the most complex, ever held on eBay, and the largest it has operated across the Asia-Pacific. Some 366 auction items have been listed over the last 2 weeks, including seats in all three classes, in singles, pairs and blocks. The eBay pages hosting details of the Singapore Airlines A380 First Flight Charity Auction recorded over 26 million hits during the auction, with Australia, Germany, the US then Canada making up the most visitors to the sites. Data suggests internet users from over 160 countries visited the auction pages at some point during the auction. http://www.singaporeair.com/saa/en_UK/cont...ase/NE_4907.jsp
  21. Their seat configuration looks cool & they have a mini Y cabin with 88 seats only at the back of upper deck. Main deck Y cabin looks way too crowded with 311 seats in there.

    Standing on private land which clearly marks ' for authorized personnel/vehicle only, of course the owner has the rights to ask you to leave. After 911 things getting more and more sensitive, imagine if the person standing next to the runway is not holding camera but firearms instead, what will happens to those planes with hundreds and thousands of live in there. Sometimes we have to see things in different perspective, those MAHB security officer they are just performing their duty to ensure the safety of the airport. They've been kind by giving verbal warning only as they can easily put you into trouble if they want to by reporting to the police.

    Wow, EBF is the newest in their fleet, freshly delivered from Airbus on last month.
