Came back on AK the evening of the wedding itself and was eager to spot the B747-8i, Unfortunately the weather the next day was horrendous and only got better around 3pm when 9M-III departed.

 

T2 was full to the brim and some aircraft were parked at T1 and move to T2 to pick up their passengers.

 

First to leave - M42-02

Here is my catch last saturday, nothing special but got bunch of foreign airlines from China and Brunei..wishing Korean airliners come in daylight unfortunately they like to come in the midnight so it's hard to spot them. Anyway, enjoy !

 

Initially wanted to come at 4 PM but a bit late and almost missed the Xiamen Air landing but managed to reach the spotting location just in time before their arrival !

9M-AFP lift off to JHB as AK5303. Donning the "1 Malaysia" color scheme. That's make Airasia unique which they have many different color scheme.

 

_MG_5712.jpg9M-MWH nicknamed as Layang-Layang with new livery I guess?

Is Xiamen Air a seasonal charter or scheduled flight?

Apparently scheduled

But the manner in which these Chinese carriers dip in and out of the scene as per demand, doubt it makes much difference whether it's scheduled or chartered or ad hoc :D
