MAS Privatisation

Why would MH notify you of equipment change if, as you had described, you had just bought the ticket and the equipment was already a 332?

 

Anyway, MH never advises equipment change but only seat change if this has been preselected.

I think he meant from websites like Airlineroute that usually provide updates whenever an airline includes an aircraft upgage/downgauge in the GDS schedule.

 

Maybe this is just a one-off equipment swap.

Thanks that's correct.

 

Was looking at expert flyer and it seems that change is scheduled for at least the next few months.

MH does not notify pax of equipment change but only seat change if already preselected - which in many cases usually denote some equipment change for that particular flight

In economy?

I believe for flights to Bangkok you get this. For flights to Yangon you get the standard meal box.

As far as I knew, MH613 will operates daily with A330-200/300 starting 15 June/19.

Excellent! I can finally get some decent rest on SIN-KUL flights.

Finally flatbed on the route. That will give SQ a run for their money.

BKK and CGK get the full tray service for quite some time now. PNH, DPS, BWN etc still get the mealbox treatment.

Didn't know. Why the difference? Khazanah and mof executives fly these two routes often?

As a regular traveller I'm sure you can tell the difference between a lucrative and a not so lucrative route.

Yes, I'm glad MH is upping its game on this premium route. Sleep is very important to business travellers, especially on a flight as long as KUL-SIN.

Qantas suffered massive million dollar losses at the same time as MAS - 2013-2014. But they recovered to make billion dollar profits. Why Qantas boleh and MAS tidak boleh? Here is a story of Qantas' recovery.

I must admit >80% of KUL/BKK sector was on TG, I chose MH this time because of timing.

 

What is cost difference between snack box and meal on tray? RM 6? 5 cabin crews instead of 4? Believe service consistency throughout the network is important to branding.

The marginal costs will not be an issue if people are willing to pay for it. Clearly, not enough people are.

 

And before someone points out they prefer TG because they offer 34 inch pitch, glorious widebodies and piping hot meals at a low price - look at their financial performance. You are effectively being subsidised by the Thai taxpayer.

TG is a glc, leakage is not insignificant.

From my experience, inbound from BKK & DPS are catered from those stations

I dont believe there is catering uplift from DPS, but there is uplift at CGK.

And with the larger PTV screens in the A330 business class seats, high yielding pax can now also watch with enhanced clarity a movie or two, and maybe squeeze in a third one before landing if the plane needs to do circles due to bad weather over the destination airfield.
