Go see the awesome Philippine (monkey-eating) Eagle in Davao! :)

 

Monkey eating? For real?

Scary though......

 

generally measures 86 to 102 cm (2 ft 10 in to 3 ft 4 in) in length and weighs 4.7 to 8 kilograms (10 to 18 lb). Among the rarest, largest, and most powerful birds in the world, it has been declared the Philippine national bird.

I think the article meant KUL - KCH is 16 times weekly.

Cannot be lah, that is like only two flights daily with two days in the week having a third one :)

That may have been MH's schedule of many decades ago !

Or rather 16 flights daily? Currently there are already 12 flights daily. And by increasing the frequency on those four days that will make 16 flights daily?

I think that these extra KUL-KCH flights are only for a limited period, from December 1, 2012 to February 5, 2013.

 

The Bernama report is not very clear.

I seem to remember that there were 14 flights a day each way just a few months ago. Did they reduce any flight to KCH recently ?

Did a check on AirAsia booking engine.

 

Monday's list of flights KUL-KCH (TTL = 13):

Wednesday's list of flights KCH-KUL (TTL=12):

The flight count was the same in the opposite travel directions. So it would appear that on 4 days a week, there is one additional flight.

There is a sizeable Bugis Sabahan around Sabah especially the east coast. Whereby their relatives still stay around Sulawesi. I'd say give Makassar a try.
