I am curious how big (or rather, small) this market is. IIRC, the biggest MY-South America market is to/from Brazil (but even that is tiny).

SQ already has had some sporadic 772 operated services on certain days, I think the flight (SQ112?) in between SQ106 and SQ116. But lately, these became 333 operated.

ETA 1am and 2am is understandable for holiday chartered flight or timed for short transit but not otherwise. by default, yield on these flights could not be high.

Good to see new airline coming to KLIA, however Lanmei Airlines has been dowsizing their operation, not sure how long will KUL route last or even start at all.

She later tweeted a follow up, clarifying that she did not know about nasi lemak and apologised for any offence caused to Malaysians.

While responses to the second tweet were generally more forgiving, some commenters questioned her sensitivity for criticising a dish that she was unfamiliar with, equating it to how ethnic food is often ridiculed by those outside the culture.

Probably because they need to redeploy planes to high demand routes for the Summer Olympics.

Do also note that most of the cuts are from their NRT operations - it looks like for ANA, NRT flights are less popular than HND ones.

NH announced a huge expansion due to the new HND slots (new flights to ARN, IST, MXP as well as increased frequencies to SFO, SYD etc.) - they probably need the planes from somewhere and SE Asia gets the brunt of it. Having that said, KUL capacity adjustments lasts for only 2 months unlike other stations where their NRT flights are halved for entire summer.

HND's slots are use it or lose it. NRT on the other hand still have slots available. HND is also taking over some transfer pax (e.g. even with the limited KUL flights, MY-US pax are still able to transfer at HND to LAX, JFK, SFO - which probably accounts for more than 50% of the MY-US market on NH).

Wow, what a score for EK.  There are a lot of Malaysians especially Penang-ites working with EK for, this route is definitely a boon for them!

Seems like QR still have the edge over EK, based on journey time for Penangites travelling to ME and beyond. Via SIN seems like a long journey when you have options to fly out via KUL/BKK/HKG or even SIN with SQ/MI.

If it's MH, would probably forgo concept of flying with own metal and just paste a code share on whichever carrier willing to risk trying it out :)
