More and more airlines like the CASK of narrow bodies and they are getting more and more capable too - so we are beginning to see narrow bodies operate more and more medium range routes these days. These routes also help airlines increase their aircraft utilisation, further reducing their costs and improving their yields.

I was on the MI 738 inaugural flight to KUL, the crew informed me back then B738 was bought purely because it can go further than the A320 they currently have and are available faster than A320neo. Expect Sendai, other secondary Indian and China cities that SQ terminated to be added soon. On debate is Maldives. SQ Group seems to keep it with SQ for now, won;t be surprised if they offload it to TZ or MI soon.

Male is already served by MI and TR.

the 738 cannot make the 7 hour flight not without some payload restrictions, as only the new 737 MAX which Malindo just got can do a 7 hour flight. But even that, then again not sure if I would want to sit 7 hours in a narrow body 737.
