  1. Wonder if anyone ever considered uplifting meals from other stations that have proper catering facilities instead - SIN, BKK, CGK ...? ๐Ÿ˜€ Sure it's going to be costly, but at silly situations, absurdity may prove useful
  2. Gone farcical ๐Ÿ™„ https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2023/09/14/mas-food-safe-for-consumption-assures-loke
  3. Carrier to serve Sabah and Sarawak viable, say analysts (msn.com) Shifting objectives/priorities and mobile goal posts ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
  4. Another opinion, no need to feed too well prior to arrival into Bangkok city itself - there should be more than enough culinary excitements there to satisfy the resulting expanded appetites ๐Ÿ˜
  5. (44) Scarlettๆœ‰่ฏ่ฏด โ€” ๅœจ้ฉฌๆฅ่ฅฟไบš็š„ไธญๅ›ฝไบบ็ป™ๆฒ™ๅทดๅฑฑๆ‰“ๆ นๅทž่ฎฎๅ‘˜็š„ไธ€ๅฐๆ—…ๆธธ็Œฎ่ฎฎๅ€ก่ฎฎ๏ผๅ†่ฐˆไธœ้ฉฌๅฑฑๆ‰“ๆ นๆ—…ๆธธ๏ผ ELOPURA ๏ผˆ็พŽไธฝ็š„ๅฐ้•‡๏ผ‰ - YouTube Well, if ever you need evidence to substantiate ..... ๐Ÿ˜ (skip to 26:00) But seriously, I think this couple do have some pretty valid opinions and suggestions that hopefully can reach the tourism authorities ๐Ÿ˜„
  6. I think we should understand that this narrative about having our own airline operations as mean of 'easing burden' of the flying public, increase connectivity to the state, ..... etc, all those benevolent attributes - is not new, and for Sabah, there is a case history already ๐Ÿ˜‰ Back in the 70's, when timber and oil money was flowing into the state's coffers, those were the promises and plans - a couple of 707's were roped in by Sabah Air. What eventually transpired was the 9M-TDM and 9M-TMS fiasco, which helped to drain the state's coffers quite a bit โ˜น๏ธ But back then there wasn't social media where such things could have been publicly scrutinized, we only got to read about it when a newspaper publisher decided to go 'opposition' and ran a whole series of articles about the subject in the run up to state elections - which the incumbent gahmen lost ๐Ÿ˜
  7. With regard to this issue and particularly in Sabah context, I fear 'sink' may prove dominant over 'swim' My fear is tgat if they do go headlong into this, the proverbial bottomless pit will be opened up ..... ๐Ÿ˜•
  8. I don't quite catch the correlation ?! ๐Ÿ˜ Overly flattering for the insect, oblivious towards the textile design ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ™„ Can someone help me out here please ?! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. Now Sabah's turn - only fair it's also placed in this 'foreign carriers' thread ๐Ÿ˜ I hope this absurdity does not come to reality ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ https://www.dailyexpress.com.my/news/218944/sabah-may-have-own-airline/
  10. The 'hero' status probably restricted only in that particular chap's ego mindset - I imagine there would have been many sane fellow pax wishing he would just shut up and go incognito ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes, that 'hero' probably did not take up much consideration as to likelyhood of the unstable guy's ability to harm others Plus, if he really believed a few harsh words will even help to diffuse the situation ....... ๐Ÿ™„ As I said, pretty dumb ..... probably far fetch, maybe the law enforcers could press charges against the 'hero' for aggravation of the peace ..... ๐Ÿ˜
  11. From what was aired on Aussie telly, there was at least one other pax having a shouting match with the fella Dunno lah, pretty dumb thing to do in my opinion - why go inflame further someone who was clearly not in 'correct' state of mind already ? ๐Ÿ˜’
  12. And to think British Airways all those years ago gave up on their world liveries project because people were getting confused by the 'variety' ..... ๐Ÿ˜„
  13. Yet another Malaysian airline with ICS - Identity Confusion Syndrome ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. In case of BKI, any further land reclamation will encroach upon/deteriorate the nearby marine national park, a rich lucrative vein for the tourism industry, which in turn has been a major contributor to BKI's traffic growth I guess not wise to kill the goose that lay eggs ๐Ÿ˜
  15. Consider rescheduling your trip till after August ?! ๐Ÿ˜
  16. As opposed to our experience at LHR T2 UK border control last week - not a single question, not a single word, not even a response to my 'good afternoon' greet (no smile either) ๐Ÿคฃ No more than a minute I reckon, and the whole experience including the queue was like five minutes total ? We concluded most of pax on our flight qualified for the e-gates and were segregated there away from us old school travellers ๐Ÿ˜
  17. The longer this drag on and the more elaborate the story spins out, it would seem that each party is helping to dig the other party's hole ever deeper in search of a mutually face saving compromise ๐Ÿ˜
  18. As per Mr Lee's reply - bimbang tiada orang masak ๐Ÿ˜‰
  19. Likely it will be old food repackaged but invoiced 'differently' ?! ๐Ÿ˜’

    Sarawak has agreed to take over MASWings, says Abang Jo | The Star ๐Ÿ˜„
  21. Singapore Airlines to roll out free Wi-fi for all passengers in rare move | South China Morning Post (scmp.com) Game changer ?! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  22. Sโ€™wak boutique airline expected to take off within three years, says Abg Jo (theborneopost.com) To be fair, this version of the story makes much more sense ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus, he had apparently worked at MH in the early years, and has an MBA to boot ๐Ÿ˜€
  23. Certainly the narrative has mutated over course of time ๐Ÿ˜‰ As I recall it 1) first it was to provide 'direct international flights' into KCH (and Sarawak I suppose) as that segment was/is somewhat lacking - you can of course go into a wholly separate discussion on that issue, but probably not appropriate here ..... 2) then when PM made that statement pre-Raya, 'agreed in principle' as a market manipulator tool to drive down airfare costs Semenanjung-Borneo (I don't recall if that was Sarawak specific or EM in general) 3) now with an anticipated fleet of 120-seater turboprops, one cannot even start to speculate how those (already declared) objectives can be worked upon ๐Ÿค” Well, hopefully said business model is not based upon a fleet of 120-seater turboprop How can you mention "30 years experience" and "new business model" in same breath ?! ๐Ÿ™„ I'm pretty certain the likes of MH, FY, OD, AK, Z9, TR, BI etc will be finely tuned to every new twitch in this 'new airline' - no way you can keep to yourself la ๐Ÿ˜
  24. Hahah ! Reminds me of when my ex-work colleagues from PJ HQ office used to say "... we in Malaysia do this way, but you in Sabah & Sarawak do so different ......" Sorry, I diverge ...... ๐Ÿ˜€
  25. Could this also be reason they want to hive off AK to D7, so their 'super app' can be said to be independent of meddling from air asia ?
