  1. You reckon those Japanese blokes who had just stomached ignominy of a 'restructuring' of their own self recently would realistically be in any fit state of mind to undertake the MH challenge ?! 😁
  2. from: https://www.thestar.com.my/tech/tech-news/2020/01/17/british-journalist-criticises-airlines-version-of-nasi-lemak-gets-schooled-by-malaysians I apologize to all and sundry for any and all negative comments I have ever posted about inflight grub 😁 (particularly as I had (or should have) thanked the Lord for what I was about to receive ..... )
  3. So this was the slip of paper we were all issued with - go to any of these F&B joints at SIN, present your boarding pass and you're entitled to SGD15 worth of nutritional nourishment Nothing too note worthy after that really Excepting that 9V-MGI was drafted in to rescue our journey and we arrived home a tad three hours over our original STA To be honest, the state we were in by the latter stages, we could not care less what it was thy served us on board (we were 'sustained') But the one thing that lingered in mind - was the profuse and consistent apologies for the 'misadventure' throughout, once it became apparent it was one of those days (when the stars are misaligned .....)
  4. Something like 5 or 10 minutes before the declared ETD on screen at our gate, I suppose 'they' then decided it was a lost cause and announced a "technical delay due to late arrival of aircraft ....." (I'm still left wondering if my showing them on my mobile of FR24 tracking of 9V-MGJ incoming from KUL had any bearing on that decision) The apologies started flowing thereafter, and 'refreshment packs' were freely dispensed at the holding gate we were at Nothing substantial - water, cookies ..... just enough to sustain 9V-MGJ eventually arrived after a protracted delay and made her way to gate to disgorge her cargo, both self loading and manually unloaded - all seemed on track (courtesy of FR24 and Changi's complimentary wi-fi) Then worries mounted, when all activities around the aircraft just ... ceased Not long after, someone came on the PA to concede the aircraft had gone inoperable, I suppose to you and me, it's "not fit to fly" I'm not about to go argue that line of logic
  5. Not saying this is apple to apple comparison, but rather just a recollection of how the golden goose family dealt with our recent 'misadventure' at their home base Our MLE-SIN flight was already delayed at the get go, but the scheduled near 9 hours transit at SIN more than adequately cushioned After a quick sojourn into town for a bak kut teh lunch ..... ... we returned to a well and truly drenched Changi, consequent to which the already busy air traffic was thrown into chaos Our onward connecting flight to BKI fell victim to that, as it came clear the designated aircraft for our flight, incoming from KUL was held up in a holding pattern west of SIN, whilst awaiting accumulated traffic to clear
  6. Malaysia Airlines admits snacks 'too light' during horror flight ordeal from: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12299336 If anyone of us was on that flight and could be bothered to file a trip report ...... 😁
  7. Move to make Labuan flight transit hub from: http://www.dailyexpress.com.my/news/144822/move-to-make-labuan-flight-transit-hub/ Should Changi big wigs be alarmed by this ? There is after all absence of congestion and an 'extended runway' at LBU Plus 'incentives' some more .....
  8. This Love Fly outfit still not flying regularly day in day out I believe - and yet there are already 'mascara stains' all over 9M-LOV there 😀 Goodness knows what she will end up looking like if and when time get scarce for a quick shower and beauty touch ups
  9. If loads on my most recent MI flights BKI/SIN/BKI give any clue, SQ group would be more likely considering whether to carry on at all in any form
  10. ???!! (again totally out of character)
  11. Look unlikely 9M-VAA will be able to make her appearance at BKI (AK5118) tomorrow, not with how her date at Singapore (AK717) is scheduled Heck of a long flight KUL-SIN though isn't it ?
  12. So the possibility is there, unlikely though it may seem (for now at least) to have airasia.com peddling MH and OD seats ?! Now that would be levelling the playing field somewhat (on assumption no one does any tinkering to the algorithm within)
  13. I think they are now reaping fruits of their "we're cheap, cheaper than you know who ......" campaigns of yesteryears (well, at least for us Malaysians)
  14. Whether you are aware of it and/or care to recognize it, there were promises and obligations pledged to the two Bornean components at conception of the nation of Malaysia, and I suppose we should be grateful that all parties have largely adhered to the spirit (if not to the letter) of this If I may opine, your "Let the Sabah/Sarawak government run it" assertion smacks of ignorance, and dare I say, sheer arrogance I can only pray and hope that those in corridors of power, whichever their political inclination, do not entertain such thoughts of yours in the slightest bit, ever
  15. I don't suppose any of the Max 8 or Max 10 destined for MH would have made it to the production line yet ?
  16. Kenot leh, says there only "4 seats left" Potential is limited, max saving is RM600 😁
  17. Ah yes, do recall who it was who laid on that blue Hebatkan Negaraku 9M-XXI into BKI last year ? 'Backed the wrong horse' everyone said (particularly with the 'old horse' at other side of the fence then) You have to but admire how management there had just 'acted accordingly' since - weathered that challenge quite well by any account
  18. As far as I can remember, upper floor of T2 had accommodated only KFC, another kopitiam and a souvenir vendor - not sure it's wise nor safe to channel pax up there as matter of course Not unless you mean raising the roof, building outwards and sideways, fitting in aerobridges (oh you gotta have them, all canggih airports have them nowadays) and a couple or more flyovers in vicinity to 'ease traffic congestion' ...... another big ticket item awaiting big budget allocation, mouthwatering prospect
  19. Would that not be akin to saying the rain clouds keep drenching upon MAB alone even when others are standing under the same sky ?
  20. Or it could be purpose of land purchase not for use as an airport terminal in long term plans ?
  21. If the will is there, I reckon no issue whatsoever Just get people behind adjacent Tanjung Aru Eco Development to build and deliver a new school nearby Gonna look fantastic on their CSR profile whilst freeing up land for T2 expansion; win-win situation for all
  22. Well, could be BKI T2 making a comeback ? Solutions in sight for KKIA2, Star City woes from: http://www.dailyexpress.com.my/news/141893/solutions-in-sight-for-kkia2-star-city-woes/
  23. Be realistic - if the 'alpha male' even think of jumping, those lower down the food chain worth their salt will already be limbering up in preparedness to jump
