Don't think there is any upgrades for BKI as well this time around, although we do have some charters from OD to Chinese cities like NNG, CTU, TSN, WNZ etc.  CNY seasonal charter I think.

Sorry to inform you that there isn't any equipment upgrade for CNY this time around. Only extra flights mounted by AK with flight number AK9222/9223 operated by KUL hub crew. MAB favor BKI more than KCH for equipment upgrade to A333. In 2017 there's equipment upgrade to A333 once a while. 

Sigh,. thanks for the information.

Okay, at least one equipment upgrade.

Yep, time for this baby to take a bath. I always enjoyed an A330 landing; usually smooth and slow like any gentle giant. Thanks for the pictures Prestley

When MTC came last year, it was even dirtier!

On a side note, 9M-AJY on 25th operated KUL-ICN-YNY-KCH and is parked at the cargo apron at the moment of this posting. YangYang is one of the airports closest to the Olympic venue cities. Charter flight?

Seems like Xpress Air has stopped/suspended services to KCH from PNK. If so, then I am not surprised. With high fares, old equipment and stiff competition, one is bound to give out.

For the legacy carriers, death from LCC competition comes swiftly.

Well, there goes another airline. It will be very interesting to see how AK and IW fight it out on this route. Price wise, AK seems to be much lower.

Yes indeed. The thing though about XD is that it offers something that AK and IW do not - onboard stretcher services - the one thing that contributes to the medical tourism between PNK and KCH. But then, I found out that some of the private hospitals here started offering trans-border ambulance services. That I suppose spells the death knell for XD since their passenger fares were not cheap - something like RM400+ one way from KCH to JOG via PNK.

Starting off with some fighter action.

9M-AGP, despite being one of the 9M-AGx series, this one is an A320ceo.

These old dinosaurs are still around.

Wow, great dynamic shots Mr. Prestley starting with our two top guns, and the tower shot is particularly spectacular with the right amount of motion blur for otherwise very dull traffic at KCH. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you all! Hoping to finally catch some more of D7's A330s this election. Hoping for some upgrades from MH's side too.
