Please, if someone can come up with a 1:400 or 1:200 version of that, it will save me a small fortune from having to buy all the Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian, Japanese .. .. etc versions separately :)

Maybe what you need is just some tiny stickers - depending on whether you have a craving for sushi, tom yam, etc ...

Airasia will take delivery of one of Airbus Industrie's A320Neo test aircraft (MSN 6642) after it has been refurbished.

 

This is not the first time they have done this. They have also taken an A320 sharklet test aircraft, MSN 5098 for Indonesia Airasia (reg PK-AZE). It is possible that these planes are sold at a big discount. However, I think Airasia's main reason is that they need to add planes fast - so if they can get the test aircraft faster than normal production aircraft, its good!

Having a little time to spare so I make a timeline of MH's widebody aircraft based on recent news.

 

My assumptions:

1. All planned aircraft type will materialise.

2. A359 delivery is 1 per month but the 6th aircraft is in June 2018.

3. Air Berlin's A332 delivery is 1 per month beginning January 2018.

4. B789 delivery is 1 per month beginning July 2019.

5. A333 retirement at 1 aircraft every 4 months beginning January 2020.

6. A339 delivery at 1 aircraft every 4 months beginning January 2020.

 

All are pure speculations on my part.

 

Historical fleet at the height of MH in yesteryear:

- 17 MP series B744

- 17 MR series B772

- 10 MK series A333

- 5 MK series A332

Total = 49 widebody in mid 2000s.

 

MH-Emirates partnership effective from 1 February 2016. I would speculate MH will only start expanding/resuming former destinations if this partnership is terminated. Reference: QF-EK JV lasted for only 5 years.

Updating my chart with the latest news about the 6 Air Berlin's A332, which materialised.

 

My assumptions:

1. All planned aircraft type will materialise.

2. A359 delivery is 1 per month but the 6th aircraft is in June 2018.

3. Air Berlin's A332 delivery is 1 per month beginning February 2018.

4. B789 delivery is 1 per month beginning July 2019.

5. A333 retirement at 1 aircraft every 4 months beginning January 2020.

6. A339 delivery at 1 aircraft every 4 months beginning January 2020.

All are pure speculations on my part.

 

June 2018 is an interesting month as MH will have the most number of widebody aircraft in the fleet in a while. That is just before the 6 A380s are deactivated.
