  1. That's a shame. I was rather looking forward to foreign airlines (e.g LH, QF, NZ, AF, etc) filling the void and our trillion-RM debt disappearing overnight.
  2. KUL isn't LHR. Airlines aren't tripping over one another to serve KUL, and no incentive is great enough to change their minds. You want to connect a second-rate market like Malaysia to the world? You're going to need a national carrier.
  3. But it's a better idea to channel that money into some other shady project that in all likelihood will benefit even fewer Malaysians? Is that your idea of taxpayers' money well spent?
  4. Believe govt should just shut down all Malaysian carriers. No chance of failing airlines and draining resources. Much more feasible.
  5. And who gets the last laugh when there's no competition? The Malaysian public? Where do you think all that money would end up if it weren't used for saving the airlines? A new hospital that's built by the most competent contractor through a clean and transparent tender process? Let's get real. This is Malaysia.
  6. Perhaps because there’s more to pollution than motor vehicles and planes.
  7. You’re confusing outright bans with quarantine orders. AU/NZ aren’t banning incoming passengers — they just need to self-isolate. I know some people who prefer going now and self-isolate, rather than wait and risk an outright ban.
  8. Those A359s are meant for domestic routes to begin with. It’s the A351s that will fly internationally.
  9. Are we really going to pretend that average domestic fares haven't dropped dramatically since the "old glory days" of MH's monopoly?
  10. Ah yes. The old glory days of RM800 tickets to East Malaysia. Good times.
  11. I think KLIA3 (god help us if they stick to that nomenclature) is effectively MTB2. Satellite B would still part of the current MTB. It wasn’t too long ago that MAHB said KLIA3 is decades away. MTB expansion should be the more immediate plan I believe. In any case I can’t see how they can rely on the existing MTB facilities to serve another Satellite terminal.
  12. If by “going places” you mean having a government that meddles non-stop with VN, then sure. Some people saying GA was going places after its rebirth in the early 2010s and that MH had so much to learn. Look how well that turned out.
  13. We’re talking about granting a short extension to documented visitors who are having issues getting home. Nobody is suggesting granting them permanent residence/asylum/citizenship. How this compares to the issue of illegal immigration is beyond me.
  14. The naming convention is irrelevant if the OP can't differentiate between the Aerotrain and the KLIA Ekspres.
  15. You're confusing yourself. The aerotrain has nothing to do with KLIA2. It gets you between the C gates and A/B/G/H gates within the Main Terminal. From the Main Terminal you can take either the shuttle bus or KLIA ekspres to KLIA 2.
  16. Either way there's going to be plenty of flak. If they restrict the entry of Chinese tourists they're going to be bashed for failing to achieve tourism targets, passenger traffic, etc etc. If they don't, the overnight medical experts will criticise them for being wilfully blind.
  17. EK seems to have 5th freedom rights between PEN and SIN too. Been years since I flew a widebody on that route
  18. If they’re going to lose money anyway they might as well get some shiny new widebodies
  19. With a more lucrative home market I’d be disappointed if they didn’t find good routes to fly.
  20. This is hardly an MH-only issue. The concept isn’t very difficult to understand: if you want free/cheap changes, buy a flexible ticket. Much easier to understand than things like CASK if you ask me
  21. Do you think the vultures give a hoot about anything but their own bottom lines?
  22. The AF/KL deal would spell the end of MH’s membership in OW. That would be a huge bummer.
  23. Out of KUL? Perhaps. In general? Absolutely not. You try comparing CX’s ex-HKG fares.
