MAS A380 - Fleet to be Retained

Recommended Posts

Looks like the A380 will arrive in KUL in incomplete livery. How dissappointing

 

Any further delay & you will delay the EIS - better to get through all the proving flights out of the way first then worry about painting the livery.

Hmm, I do not recall any airlines that took delivery of their aircraft with unfinished livery.

A good thing from a spotter's point of view, as this "livery" will not last long and the picture will be rare. Once the final livery is applied and aircraft doing line flying, there will be thousands of photos around.

Runway 32L is now shorten due to KLIA2 construction. LDA 2800m. There has been tailwinds lately on runway 32, up to 10 knots. Runway 32R landing is a possibility.

 

Good luck to all the spotters. I'll be out of town for the next few days.... :(

The A380 departed TLS at aound 9pm local time. Other than the pilots and engineers, AJ and Danny will be onboard. Arrival should be around 1530 to 1600 pm in KUL.

 

One word of advice for those waiting for the "official" unveiling of the interiors, DON'T get your hopes up too high or you might be really dissapointed. You have been warned!

Great advice. I think this is one aircraft where expectations should be low.

To further lower expectations, the first class offering is not even on par with the first class on EK's 777.

 

On a slightly better note, the much criticized GCC cabin on the A330 seats will be refurbished, full flat seats will be installed I believe. Together with an increased MTOW version and fitting crew bunks, ops into Europe and maybe NZ are being considered.

I thought MH new first class has wider seats than SQ's Beyond First and the biggest LCD of all? hmm not much expectation on the offerings and thats where you will meet surprises! Let's see how the final things look like :drinks:

Can A330-300 fly to Europe? Only A330-200 can do longer routes.
