2013 Aircraft Deliveries to MAS Group, AirAsia Group & Malindo

Recommended Posts

2013 will be another year for lots of aircraft deliveries. Some highlights will include the delivery of the final 2 A388s to MH, the delivery of 3 ATR72-600s to FY and more sharklet aircraft to the Airasia group. D7 will finally get more new aircraft, now that KLIA2 is scheduled for a 2013 opening!

 

MH's fifth A388 (9M-MNE) was spotted with full livery at Hamburg - it would appear that delivery should be anytime in the next month or so. CDG flights are scheduled to begin on 1 March.

Will 9M-MS interior be the same as MX series?

Yes.

 

The only difference will be less powerful engines. AFAIK.

Saw on flightaware that OE-IBP did a test flight (I presume as it was making circles for 90 minutes) yesterday afternoon. Interesting to see what AK is up to.

AK lease 10yrs old A320-214 (OE-IBP) from GECAS

This plane is ex us airways and Spring airways

Dont know what their plan to lease old A320

I believe it is 12½ years old: http://www.planespotters.net/Production_List/Airbus/A320/1286,OE-IBP-GECAS.php

 

 

Perhaps it is meant for QZ - they are planning to expand QZ more aggressively than originally planned.

What do less powerful engines bring to the overall operation? Less fuel consumption?

Domestic flight use less fuel compared to region flight.

Less fuel means less take off weight.

Less take off weight dont need more powerful engines.

And less power engines = less fuel consumption

And aren't landing fees based on weight of aircraft? So, lower weight = lower fees.

Not all landing fees are based on weight (and if they are it is calculated on MTOW not actual). A lot of airports have adopted a price per passenger fee for RPT flights, and this is physically calculated on the number of passengers onboard (excluding crew) so in effect if one day you bring in 150 people, you will be charged 150 x whatever the price per pax is, and the next if you have only 1 passenger, you are onyl charged for one. Great idea to encourage airlines to stick it out through tougher times by immediately reducing their costs.

Can expect MSA to arrive around 22nd of February.

Airliners always carry just enough fuel for the destination, so if a flight requires 5 tons of fuel to be carried, it will carry 5 tons. Doesn't matter if the aircraft can carry 10 tons or 20 tons of fuel.

 

As for the reason of the different specs, you can take the S in the MS-series as Sapphire, and work out from there.

So, why dont the management create another special logo - this time an all red wau for the -MS series to reminisce on the previous plan...
