    KL and Singapore
  1. They are probably counting visitors from Singapore including the day trips to JB.
  2. I was going to use them on a trip to Redang but changed my mind. Cost wasn't the issue (although it was a concern) however the key issue was the strict limit on 7kg of luggage. Yes I know its a small plane but for many 7kg is too little.
  3. As a long time KUL-SIN commuter it’s good to see that things are slowly returning to normal which schedules increasing. Unfortunately, there is a nasty trend that MH are selling tickets for flights and then cancelling them with 1-2 weeks to go. Almost every single flight I’ve booked since April 1 has been cancelled and even when I rebooked, they get cancelled. At one point recently they were cancelling flights and then flying with just a single daily flight with an A330. I’m constrained with timings so I can just leave the office early when MH decides to cancel and I don’t want to burn what little leave I have by keep having to take half days. How they can expect to operate a key business route in such a shambolic way is anyone’s guess. Is it a load issue or a shortage of crew/aircraft? Perhaps it’s a scan to collect people money knowing that they will likely cancel. Any insiders able to share some insight?
  4. KUALA LUMPUR, 21 FEBRUARY 2020 – Berjaya Hotels & Resorts (“BHR”) is pleased to announce the launch of its inaugural flight from Subang Airport, Kuala Lumpur (also known as Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport or Subang Skypark Terminal) to Redang Island at 10.10am on 20.02.2020. With the new ATR 42-500 aircraft operated and managed by Berjaya Air, travellers can now embark on a seamless journey to experience the crystal-clear water and white powdery sand of Redang Island, where the group owns two resorts, namely The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort and Redang Island Resort. https://www.berjayahotel.com/media-centre/news/berjaya-hotels-resorts-launches-new-direct-flight-subang-airport-taaras-beach-spa-resort-redang-island.html
  5. Came across this posted on another site and thought that some of you maybe interested in it. Apologies if was posted before. Was anything similar done for KLIA ?

  7. Have used a few times but its not that cheap when you compare it to J promo fares I usually find that if you offer a little above the minimum it will work
  8. KUL-SIN Shuttle returns... sort of... KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines Bhd will be launching the first-of-its-kind fare option for travellers called shuttle fares, on direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore beginning December 10, 2019. https://www.thesundaily.my/local/malaysia-airlines-introduces-shuttle-fares-on-kul-sin-direct-flights-MB1726529 https://www.malaysiaairlines.com/sg/en/plan-your-trip/mh-shuttle.html

  10. Hmmm... so which operators are not adhering to standards I wonder?
  11. just found this:https://www.expatgo.com/my/2019/11/05/air-asia-doubles-flights-from-kuala-lumpur-to-singapore/?fbclid=IwAR2AktTEMoz_4uV1Ah4DAP1uKvFzN42Q7BG3T-ZIbYw3f-hiXbElybPpWic Starting on 10 November 2019, Air Asia has recently announced that they are increasing their services and seat capacity from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore with an additional daily flight on their wide-body Airbus A330 aircrafts. AirAsia’s regional commercial head, Amanda Woo said, “We are very excited about the commencement of flight services using our fleet of wide-body aircraft Airbus A330 in response to the increased demand for Kuala Lumpur bound flights, all thanks to the constant support of our passengers. Ahead of the Visit Malaysia Year in 2020, we hope to be able to contribute and help to promote Malaysia tourism with our value fares. Guests can also look forward to trying out our award-winning premium flatbed and other perks at attractive prices.” Flight schedule: Route Flight Number Depart Arrive Frequency KUL – SIN D7 672 0800 0905 Daily SIN – KUL D7 673 1005 1110 Daily KUL – SIN D7 678 1240 1340 Daily SIN – KUL D7 679 1440 1545 Daily AirAsia’s SIN-KUL sector has recorded a steady 14% year-on-year increase having flown over 1 million passengers to date, with 24% being Singapore passport holders. With the rise of increased demand for seats on this particular sector, AirAsia has now added almost 400 extra seats per day with their wide-body A330 aircraft operations
  12. That's a lot of extra capacity on the route and surprised that they finally went ahead with D7. Wonder how long it will last?
  13. Similar things happen on the the KUL-SIN sector with business promo tickets at around RM900 return when a flexi/semi flexi Y ticket is more.
  14. I quite like XSP, its simple, quick to navigate and a little quicker to get to my place in SG. Whilst SZB is closer to my apartment in KL the extra flight time means that that the overall journey time isn't much quicker. Major dislike is the lack of ground AC on the ATR 72.
