MAS Current Fleet Withdrawal Thread

Recommended Posts

With a few of MH's new 60 aircrafts have been delivered and currently in the active fleet (todate), I think it is about time we start this thread to monitor the movement and news of the withdrawal of MH's current 'old' aircrafts, from the rumour mills phase until the farewell take off moment.

 

The objective of the thread is to track down where the aircrafts go after their retirement from a golden career with MH, either to a new operator, convert to cargo or heading to the infamous deserts.

 

As we all are well aware of, all these aircrafts will be replaced with MH's spanking new 35 Boeing 737-800, 15 Airbus 330-300 Enhanced and 6 Airbus 380-800 by 2015. MH is expecting to receive the following new aircrafts:

 

2010: 3 B738 (all delivered - MXA, MXB, MXC)

2011: 4 B738, 5 A333 (5 of 9 have been delivered - MXD, MTA, MTB, MTC, MTD)

2012: 7 B738, 3 A333, 5 A380

2013: 12 B738, 3 A333, 1 A380

2014: 9 B738, 3 A333

2015: 1 A333

 

We shall have our microscope on all 60 existing 'old' aircrafts in MH's fleet - 38 Boeing 737-400, 3 Airbus 330-200, 9 Airbus 330-300 and 10 Boeing 747-400 (Passenger).

Guys - Azizul established this new topic to track the withdrawal from service any aircraft from the existing MH fleet. So, lets keep it on topic and not deviate to what we want to see in the fleet, like some schoolboy's wet dreams or asking MH to buy 787, 748, A359 or whatever like buying fish from the wet market.

 

So, keeping within the topic...we all now know that the leased 9M-MLC will got to FY, just like the earliuer MLA & MLB.

Is MQQ based in BKI? Then the new plane may also be based here?

Even though the B744 is a beautiful plane, it is getting very old and needs to be replaced. Only a year to go before MH starts getting their A380s!

Could it be MMR, the one which involved in a landing gear incident in KCH?

I follow this thread. I still don't have an ample time to record every MH fleet record. Will do 1 day.

 

Keep this thread alive as far as could :)

I can't find any thread that tracks ex Malaysia Airlines aircraft, and not to duplicate too many threads, can we include them in this thread?

 

Here is the first one:

 

VH-OED ex MAS B747-4H6 GE powered 9M-MHO, one of Qantas' three ugly sisters, is now being scrapped at VCV. It was one of the two B744s MH sold to Qantas during the 98 Asian Financial Crisis. :sorry: :sorry:

 

VH-OEC is stored in VCV as well, its future looks bleak as well. Qantas is retiring its B744 progressively.

Take a bow.....So long, 9M-MHO...... :sorry: :sorry:

And to add on that, their sister ship 9M-MHL still flies, but as a freighter for Kalitta Air

So, with 3 new A333s in the fleet, has any old A333 been withdrawn from service yet? I thought there is one MH A333 at SZB minus both engines. Packed to go elsewhere?

Great idea to have this thread!!! Thanks Mohd Azizul Ramli for this initiative ... now I wish we have a similar thread for the SIA fleet. Many of them have gone to all parts of the world ...

 

Will any of the MH B744 be converted to B744BCF for MASkargo?

Check this site out! Looks pretty accurate to me. LINK

 

I actually remember seeing another site that's better than this but I can't remember the url now. Will try searching for it again.

I would be going to Shanghai and Beijing in March 2012, wonder if I could ever fly with the brand new A330 :)

 

By that time both destinations will be served by the new A330.
