Perhaps this is to provide support to QR who are unable to mount flights to KUL due to some of their aircrafts being grounded 😎

Just wondering why it is timed in such a way too :)

Your guess is correct. Qatar Airways used to fly 3x daily, now they are doing twice daily, the other slot will be taken up by Malaysia Airlines. The reduction on QR part was due to aircraft shortage: 28 A350 grounded and 9 B787-9 deliveries are delayed. They are bringing back another 5 A380 and lease 4 ex-CX B777-300ER  but it is not good enough.

Hello and welcome back to air travel :)

Has anyone seen the seat map for MH 160/161 (KUL-DOH-KUL)? It's a very interesting configuration.

BTW, MH also received approval from MAVCOM for 7x weekly KUL-HND flights beginning June. Maybe I am out of the loop for a very long time, but did D7 gave up their rights or did Japan grant more slots to Malaysia?

Would like to see once MH start HND - will it supplement 12 weekly NRT or they will reduce NRT?

With the launch of DOH & HND, will they have enuff widebody for that?

It's way too early to speculate on the future of MH's TYO service. At the moment we don't even know what their intention is with the HND slots.

They're not anywhere near full schedule yet. Plenty of frames to go around.

MH was stupid. They gave up their HND slots .. first they made it BKI-HND then gave it away to D7, if I remember correctly. 
 

Hopefully they will make use of their prized HND slots now

It was whoever who distributed the slots last time (can't recall if MAVCOM was set up then). 3x weekly to D7 and MH and 1x weekly to Transmile (for cargo) so they are trying to be fair to everyone but in the end it killed MH and Transmile because these 3/1 weekly flights probably not feasible to them. MH went with BKI-HND 3x B738 which obviously didn't work out for them.

JL and NH announced that they will resume daily NRT-KUL beginning 1 July. NH's HND-KUL remain suspended at the moment.
