So did u get your 9A seat Jahur? Enjoy your flight (assuming you are on that flight since you got sms notification)
 
It's a gorgeous plane MAC. Those rolls royce trent 1000 XWB engines are quiet, even on reverse thrust (load should be good?). In comparison the Malindo B738 that landed after with full reverse thrust was noisy! Those of us who went to see was lucky that the weather was not too bad when MAC arrived. When malindo arrived it started to rain. 
 
Edit: it's Rolls Royces Trent XWB engines not trent 1000 XWB engines.

I'm on 5k. But I'll try out for 9k tomorrow. Btw am on the planes wifi connection at the moment.

Nice Waiping. Sad that it arrived late. Lots of flight delays thus far for this first two aircraft. Teething problems here and there as expected. 

 

Fortunately BKI spotters have a lot more chances in the next many days.

Ah ha. nice. wifi on board. enough for you to surf mw forums with the 2nd more expensive option? (I remember there's only 2 options). I believe load will be quite good for the BKI-KUL leg?

saw 3package consisting 5mb 20mb and 100mb for usd 1,5,19 respectively. Internet speed sufficient for browsing and uploading photos but anything involving video will be slow and your quota diminishes quickly. J was quite full, economy not so could be the retiming issue many got moved to a different flight.

here is my last chapter, to conclude the spotting life for the year. 

as usual, weather wasn't on our side, but who care?  :friends:

 

as usual, depart as MH2607 back to KUL
