  1. https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2024/03/01/short-selling-of-airasia-x-shares-suspended-by-bursa Would seem the money people not particularly impressed ..... ? 🤔
  2. He is right you know, they probably were well capable of 'declining' without outside help ..... 😉
  3. Well, since subject been raised ..... 🙂 Snapshot at BKI one very early morning last week - note those two FY flights at top of list, one delayed 12:30 hours, the other 08:50 hours 😕
  4. Wow, that would be some heritage to be impressed by - like twenty odd years from the W brothers' first flight ?! 😜
  5. Is there some sort of convention as to how flight numbers are allocated ? Like your 'normal' scheduled flights vs chartered flights ... etc ? Curious 😀
  6. Many thanks 😀 So it wasn't just the 'misalignment' between the bottom part of the side cargo door and the pallet loaders, which I assume there must have been a solution devised 😄
  7. This is gonna be way OT, but A330P2F do exist then ? Do they have the side cargo door retro fitted ? As I understand it, the A330 was not seriously a candidate for freighter conversion previously due to the forward dipping incline of its fuselage. That also being reason for the 'double chin' profile of the A332F So how have they managed to overcome this, if at all ? Tq for insight 😀
  8. The people at Heathrow were probably more than keen to see her off before the unofficial 23:30-06:00 curfew, rather than having to accommodate the few hundred irate 'guests' for a further 6+ hours 😁
  9. So the red/white livery did ever see light of day on the 380 (at least partially anyway) 😁 (my apologies, do not who to assign credit for photo - it just randomly appeared in my FB feed) That F-WWAJ eventually became 9M-MNB - could 9M-MNA also have had the same tail logo painted on before the orphan blue livery prevailed ? 🤔
  10. Hajiji says no immediate need to move KKIA | Daily Express Malaysia - Sabah's Leading News Portal Well, back to subject matter Move along now, nothing else to see here for time being 😁 But by golly, I do hope someone here in Sabah can propose, plan, acquire land, finance, build, complete and successfully operate a new airport from scratch all within a ten year frame 😉
  11. https://www.msn.com/en-my/lifestyle/other/the-missing-fuselage-part-from-the-boeing-737-max-9-was-found-with-writing-saying-made-in-malaysia/ar-AA1mOJF9 The missing fuselage part from the Boeing 737 Max 9 was found with writing saying "Made in Malaysia" 🙄
  12. Boeing admits mistake over plane door blow-out https://www.bbc.com/news/business-67930977
  13. You have to but doubt whether the 737 programme will survive beyond its current manifestation 🙄 Even if Boeing is able to patch up all the known flaws, its safety issues are already firmly etched in the flying public's mind I can already imagine some local MY folks opting for AK's A320s over MH's and OD's 737 Maxs - unless the ticket price sway them otherwise 😁
  14. If they maintain this, they could in time to come boast more livery variations than AK's advert liveries 😁
  15. I'm guessing this has had knock on effect on some services - I noticed BKI-NRT-BKI is 'suspended' again barely a week after resuming end Dec 2023. Wonder what other flights been affected ?
  16. AirAsia CEO Riad Asmat resigns after helming post for six years | The Star Riad Asmat appointed AirAsia group advisor as he steps down from CEO role (nst.com.my) So, could this be first step towards their anticipated AK/D7 restructuring ?
  17. If MH had at least maintained their fleet planning ideals of the glory yesteryears (019 era perhaps ?) they would likely have already signed up for A350-2000ERs and B787-11XLRs by the dozens each 😁
  18. Would be heck of a farce if they go that route (as if there is a viable alternative 😉) - having 'upgraded' to the -600 during that brief period years ago, then abandoning the fleet for goodness know what reason and reverting back to the old -500's. And now to 'commit' to the -600 again ?! 😁
  19. I'm guessing the 'whatever for' factor has never, isn't now nor likely in forseeable future, be of significant consideration in MY plans involving public funds ..... 😀
  20. Well, might as well get it done now since it's in midst of being replaced anyway nowadays - maybe a delay of two or three years on top of what there currently is ?! 😁

    BKI 2021

    Thank you Photo of the bird now available via FR24 / Jetphotos 😀
  22. And on the off days when your unlucky stars are in perfect alignment with the sun and all planets, that part of one's anatomy would be revealed in all its naked glory - presumably one would also then risk apprehension for mooning the security personnel 😁

    BKI 2021

    Anyone has any idea what this 'T7SABAH' is ? 😀
  24. Not helped by them pulling the plug on MYY-SIN and SBW-SIN services 😑 But how much this AirAsia 'plan' been sparked by ongoing Sarawak's 'boutique' airline programme and negotiations for takeover of MasWings .....
