  1. Perhaps 🤔 if MAB JV JAL. Maybe MAB can nego further to have some sweet Haneda slots? Or hey, maybe a base there.
  2. FYI, in malaysia uniforms were made mendatory. Other countries may differ slightly. Also yes thr crew travel with both gendec (to clear immigration) and boarding pass ( for insurance ) here.
  3. Asfaik, Crew should wear their full uniform in terminal & to go through immigration in KL for identification purposes. They travel with " gen dec ", and don't chop passports like passengers do.
  4. Since we have no choice at the moment, for immediate heli support. The lease or buy option from civilian are as below: Current EC225LP of MHS Aviation: 1 MHS AVIATION BHD EC225LP 9M-SPI 2 MHS AVIATION BHD EC225LP 9M-SPE 3 MHS AVIATION BHD EC225LP 9M-SPF 4 MHS AVIATION BHD EC225LP 9M-SPG 5 MHS AVIATION BHD EC225LP 9M-SPH There are also x4 AS332 of MHS aviation that is still for sale. 1 MHS AVIATION BHD AS332L2 9M-SPD 2 MHS AVIATION BHD AS332L2 9M-SPC 3 MHS AVIATION BHD AS332L1 9M-STV 4 MHS AVIATION BHD AS332L2 9M-SPB Ex-awan inspirasi EC225LP, seems that 2 of the ex awan inspirasi EC225LP are probably still in Miri. Both has been re-registered as... 1 EC225LP ex-9M-AIM now N225XT 2 EC225LP ex-9M-AI0 now N225RT Expensive deal for not getting proper S-92 in the beginning... now gotta make do with the Puma family then. Wonder how long these Super Pumas have been stored. Perhaps since the great " puma embargo "... might be up in the air soon. Repainted TUDM.
  5. Most probably they are the bki-nrt crew from previous night. They do bki-nrt then immediate as a passenger back to kul...
  6. https://www.change.org/p/civil-aviation-authority-remove-the-airbus-225-super-puma-from-service
  7. Hey oil rig workers even made a petition and demonstration not to fly on the Super Pumas... Also talked to x2 ex nuri pilots, both my friends, they have complete confidence in the bird over Super pumas. Guess whos the real flying coffin now? But of course to get replacement parts for Nuri is a daunting task... very limited. I believe it was political, that they chose the french equipment. Like i said, to me it was a grave mistake they didn't take the S-92.
  8. Oh yeah on another note. RMAF used to operate x2 classic Pumas in the early 90s. If yall recall they lost 1 puma due to complete rotor separation on Dec 1993. The chopper was otw to pick up the then Deputy PM. Given the black history of eurocopter puma, super puma & super cougar... i wonder why RMAF opt to buy them. They look good yes, but given me a choice to fly on a puma vs a 737max. 737max anytime buddy. Sad thing, RMAF should have went for the S-92!
  9. They are considering to lease awan inspirasi and MHS super pumas now, which are originally grounded. Great, dump a dubbed " flying coffin " for another "real flying coffin". Great just great... do remember 1 of the years, i believe it was 2/3 years ago. Non of our RMAF super cougars aka EC725 took part in national parade, due to worldwide grounding. Heard, their ops hours / battle readiness are now also very limited due to extensive engineering inspection requirement... exactly like B787s. And we go and dump the Nuris... I give up Sirs. All the best. Cheers 🤐 The super cougars/ civilian Super pumas were the airline version of 737MAX ! And now they are the equivalent to 787 unreliability...fingers crossed. Personally, I know a number of ex awan inspiradi super puma pilots... guess what? The younger co pilots are doing their license conversion for fix wing as we speak. And RMAF considering to lease those choppers now.
  10. Fine, KLIA can't be compared to changi because of etc etc. But seriously KLIA got so much potential to beat many top 10 airports, example Incheon, narita and hong kong. Problem with KLIA is, they never improve nor keep their infrastructure up to date. Check-in counters are still the same for God knows how long. At least patch up, put some wooden floors like incheon or change the dull coloured tiles. Airport lighting can be quite dim especially @ MTB international dep hall. And clearly, there is a lack of F&B outlets especially after 9pm. Also recently, many retail outlets, cafes, and even CIMB bank closed. I thought it was due to renovation. But upon enquiring, they say its totally closed down. Wonder for what reason? Anyone to enlighten? Another thing, the " Purple Carpet " @ MTB departure hall is so dull... Its just simply hideous. If it belongs to someone, MAB should instruct them to remove it asap. Toilet side, yes they seriously improved a lot. Kudos to that, but the toilet bowl flush is so strong it can wet your shoes/trousers. And the toilet still got that funny smell. Wonder what detergent they are using. No doubt users are largely to be blamed also. BTW, The most beautiful and comfortable airport toilets i've experienced is not even Changi. That title belongs to Jakarta New Terminal & Bali.
  11. Cut cost, cut corners, one person do 4 persons job. Low cost everywhere, even full service also low cost style. Very high competition plus the citizen are not willing to pay for a normal rm400-600 1-2 hour return flight. This downgrade thing, is just waiting to happen. Well its at our doorstep now. No surprises. By the way, i don't think its Caam. They have improved a lot and are doing a fairly good job. Its the airlines, citizen and government.
  12. Nahh, i looked at the entire group including other non malaysian LCC in T2 ( i meant total T2 ops ), which is to be fair, a fairly moderate operation. Not many airlines/operators to deal with. What they have is more of multiple frequencies... per destination. Nothing extra really, pretty straight forward operations to me. Of course you are always entitled to your own views 🙂 which is cool
  13. Maybe yes but the total number of airline operators in T1 will still surpass T2. And , the total number of destinations for Traffic in T1 is way more than T2 for ATC to handle, that's for sure. Care to enlighten how red hat's operations is more complex? How can that be 😂
  14. Haha they don't know ATR maintain 240kts until 7-10 miles final. Over the radio " aihh slow aircraft ". During climb maybe but nah not on descent and approach mate. You maintain your 250kts strictly below 10. Ok la rwy closure not 1 month, but still closure 2-3 weeks. It was notamed 🤣but as you can see no one makes a noise. Not even in news like " RWY 3 ". Other than that yes its true mahb can do a lot of improvements on T2 side. That i agree also. But publicity like that is a no no.
  15. This runway 33/15 closure shouldn't be an issue at all. On normal days even with all x3 runways in use we can clearly see Airasia planes ( even at peak ) hours taxing all the way from T2 to runway 14L/32R. Literally One end of the world to the other end, causing delays to other T1 traffic and unnecessary workload for ATC. This is the most unprofessional culture airasia can do. I don't blame their crew etc. But the working culture they have is very unprofessional. Have we ever seen T1 traffic using runway 33/15? Unless due to bad weather, never. When runway 32L/32R was closed, i want to ask, do we see MH, OD or any other operators complaining? No. And airasia got the face to cancel flights and blame it on runway closure? Unbelievable. All stakeholders would have been informed and meetings/agreements settled before the closure of that so called " runway 3 " . Mind you LHR and Changi only have x2 runways with even greater traffic volume. Airasia should reconsider their publicity stunts. Very cheap.
