They could have done it on the A380 flights!

I am waiting for which airline will be the first one to utilise the IFE screen for pax's menu selection.

 

MH was ahead of the time on this with the previous generation IFE screen.

I think Air New Zealand has something like this - may not be meal selection during meal times. But in between meals and if you want a drink or snack, just touch, touch, touch on the screen, and select what you want from the menu, and it will be delivered to your seats.

MAB and JAL applies to MAVCOM for joint venture approval covering services between and within Malaysia and Japan.

According to this website

 

 

A JV partnership allows airlines to align service offerings, share costs and revenue, as well as share risks – generally in a specific geographic region.  For all practical purposes, a JV is a merger that applies only to certain defined routes and also requires government antitrust immunity.

 

Examples of JV partnerships include Delta’s Transatlantic partnership with KLM, Air France, Alitalia, and Virgin Atlantic, and United’s Transpacific partnership with ANA.  A more recent example is the just announced trans-border partnership between Delta and WestJet.  This JV will provide for substantial reach into Canada, with transborder service to over 30 cities, covering 95% of U.S. – Canada demand.  Both the U.S. and Canadian governments will need to provide approval, and the process generally requires a concession in the form of gate or time slot divestitures, ensuring that a competitive balance exists.

Sounds good. I wonder if they'll expand it to cover US/Canada/South Asia in the future.

Basically means both airlines share costs and revenue for the market they want a JV in. They can coordinate schedules and fares without anti-competitive agencies scrutinizing at them. 

 

I also saw "metal neutral" mentioned in the application - this means pax can choose to fly either on JL or MH on any fare without much restrictions (that's how it should work theoretically but cheaper tickets usually have a rule that says "Flights must be on MH operated by MH" etc.).

Khazanah pumps RM500 million into Malaysia Airlines even as takeover talk grows
However, the spokesperson declines to disclose the amount that has been disbursed so far. In January last year, Khazanah reportedly disbursed RM4.4 billion or 70% of the RM6 billion to the carrier.

Doesnt look like fresh funds.

PUTRAJAYA: The deep losses of Malaysia Airlines (MAS), coupled with bad management previously, make it very difficult to turn it around, says Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

"We have a problem with MAS.

"The last government gave it RM6bil, they sacked 6,000 people, then they don't fly to 60% of the destinations.

"There was no gain in what they tried to do," he said in a press conference on Monday (May 6) in conjunction with Pakatan Harapan's first year anniversary of taking over Putrajaya on May 9.

Dr Mahathir said the government was still searching for the best solution for MAS.

"I do not know what is happening. Everybody tells me it is determined to fail but nobody has come up with a proper solution," he added.

Asked if the government would sell MAS, Dr Mahathir replied: "Sometimes we think we might sell the airline (like Italian airlines belongs to the Arabs). So many airlines have been sold to other people.

"Airline business now is very competitive, after the emergence of low-cost carriers. The high-cost carriers do not get passengers.

"Then you have Arab airlines providing luxurious facilities. People cannot challenge this.

"We have yet to make a decision (whether to sell or keep MAS)," said Dr Mahathir.

Experts believe MAS may report about RM1bil in losses for the full year in 2018 after incurring about RM2.4bil losses from 2015 to 2017, as losses to pile up despite previous attempts to resuscitate the airline.

For its near-term sustainability, experts reckoned a RM1bil to RM3bil cash injection would be needed.

PM is saying that the RM 6b bailout has failed and he does not know what to do with our national airline.

Like the national car, Proton, it is probably better to sell it to private owners. Govt. should not be involved in business - it should just govern and create a good environment for business to thrive. It can invest in small stakes but it should not be a majority shareholder.

MAS and SIA should merge, says analyst
 

SINGAPORE: Malaysia Airlines and Singapore Airlines should consider a  merger, said an equity analyst.
 
According to Maybank Kim Engs regional aviation analyst Mohshin Aziz,it was his personal opinion this would make both airlines more cost efficient to operate.

 
I can't decide which is worse: The author's use of Wikipedia as a source, or the photo caption which can't differentiate between KLIA and Changi.
 

According to Wikipedia, MSA came about in 1966 as a result of a joint ownership of the airline by the governments of the two countries.However, MSA ceased operations after six years in 1972 when both governments decided to set up their own national airlines, Malaysian Airline System and Singapore Airlines.

Merger with sq may not be acceptable politically but there are other airlines that are politically acceptable.
