MAB if you are going to charge passengers for snacks you better make it a justified improvement. Serve snacks like curry puff/kuih/ more choice of snacks or sandwiches! If it's just peanuts then it's very silly

You are better of just having Buy on board instead of this silly vetting procedure

The U turn might boil down to this - will MAB be able to offer BOB and make it profitable, given the high cost of its catering contract and limited routes for such 'income generating' endeavour.? Or it might be due to wrong loading of info by the IT dept, of which I'm surprised at all.

AK food choices aplenty but ain't cheap.  Just buy from McD and allow pax to bring on-board.  That's all.

When you preorder its RM10.

 

And hey.."small portion"...then order 2 meals for RM20.....thats less then 5 USD oder around 4 Euro.

In which world you are living? What do you expect for RM10?

Compare it with other airlines in the region..Scoot for example.

RM 10 on the ground will get you a much larger portion than this.

Then u are not being fair. RM10 for 1/2 portion means 20 for a proper meal. This is same practice as not including all prices/taxes until when you check out. Typical AK practice.

No fret. For me it's expensive. I'll fly AK last if I have to.

Again let the pax buy from McD for less than 5 euros no problem. Be it MH or AK.

if thats expensive u will go hungry on jetstar.Coffee is $5 (RM16),a horrible looking smashed sandwich is $9 (almost $30)!AK hot food prices for RM10 is a bargain at 35,000 feet.

I think you have a point about the size of their portions - they did try to sell some extras (side orders) but I don't find them to be worth paying for.

However, I don't think food is my priority when flying with AK as I usually eat before departure and eat again (if I am hungry) on arrival!

Coming back to MH, it looks like they are trying out some of the revenue boosting measures of European airlines. However, they don't seem to know how to keep it simple. When you have too many rules and catergories, you will not only confuse the pax, you also confuse the crew!!!

That's because the new ticket policy hasn't fully applied yet. Many are flying on tickets booked prior to the new policy.


 

Utter nonsense.

 

How is that nonsense? Sounds perfectly logical to me, kind of like how smoking seats were assigned when smoking was allowed on planes.

I did a booking on Lite fare to Pen - it shows that there is no check in luggage, but it does include snacks and drinks

To be honest, at RM90 one way without check in luggage, I think I won't complain. Even if I go for the Basic fare with RM48 extra, it is still less than RM140 one way. For my monthly trips to Penang last year, I used to buy cheapest fare for about RM130-RM180 one way. So it does seem the Lite fare is cheaper now.
