  2. 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 ?

  4. 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
  5. 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

  7. Hmmm... so which operators are not adhering to standards I wonder?
  8. 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.

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
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Any recommendations for an ID monitoring company?
  13. and now Penang is impacted https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2019/09/18/haze-forces-six-flight-diversions-in-penang-emergency-centre-activated/1791732
  14. 4 years on and the same problem with Ipoh airport impacted https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/549-passengers-stranded-ipoh-airport-haze-sultan-azlan-shah-11903456 Any idea how low the visibility was? Do they not have ILS?
  15. came across this on Quora and not sure if it was taken from another site What is an airline pilot's day on his very last flight before retirement like? https://qr.ae/TWyEbw
  16. Its mentioned in the podcast that the MAB/Brahims have a deal, the price is low and with the rising cost of materials you cannot expect to get more (5* etc )
  17. I listened to this recently. Plenty of content re:MAS/MAB https://www.bfm.my/podcast/morning-run/the-breakfast-grille/bg-dato-seri-ibrahim-bin-haji-ahmad-brahims-cooking-up-a-plan-to-bring-brahims-up-to-speed
  18. I travel weekly for business and these days my schedule isnt that flexible. Last time this caused a knock on delay that impacted evening flights hence my concern.
  19. unless it knocks out the schedule for the day and then your flight is delayed Missing up the airspace up the airspace of the main gateway to the country isnt smart.
  20. This and the air show in SG cause chaos and shouldnt be allowed to disrupt so many flights.
  21. From Facebook The airspace at KL International Airport will be closed from Tuesday, 27 Aug to Saturday, 31 Aug from 9:00am to 10:30am for Malaysia’s 62nd National Day rehearsals and celebration. Passengers are advised to check with their respective airlines on the latest flight schedules. More information is available at https://bit.ly/2U9fJ1l
  22. MH 613/616 have been operated by a 332/333 for the past few months and my understanding from the crew is that they usually use the crew from KIX who get a break at KUL before doing the return trip to Singapore
