Lolx, transit in TPE and narrowbody all the way to CTS?? No thank you.

Hehehe, don't laugh - Air China is also sending its 737 Max from PEK to KUL. That is 6 hours non stop!

What's wrong with narrowbody? Last year I flew EY-class both on A380 (SQ) and Embraer 145 (AA).  Flying as a passenger on the Embraer with 1-2 seat configuration was much more fun than being inside the A380 which feels like being in a hall.

Anyone flown on the first gen D7 A330?  Those that can't recline but the seat slide to the front?  I'd prefer MH/OD B738 over those anytime.

Have Malindo meanwhile a Crewbase at Denpasar for the routes to Australia?

I think that will make the operation really expensive!

OD deadheads crew both ways (instead of putting crew in a hotel at destination)?

"The reality is many can't [survive]. Only a few are doing well, namely AirAsia, Lion Air, VietJet and Cebu Pacific. The rest struggle to make ends meet," warned Shukor Yusof, founder of and analyst at the Singapore-based Endau Analytics.

He sees Nok Air in Thailand, Malaysia's Malindo and a slew of smaller airlines in Indonesia at risk of bankruptcy.

Is Malindo withdrawing from Colombo? I can't seem to be able to make any booking in April anymore. CMB is also taken out from destination selection drop down list.

Only flex and Business available....yes looks like they are going out!

 

They open some new routes but no new jets, so they have to canx other routes.

Looks like no fresh money from indonesia for Malindo...

Malindo Air proposes Sydney launch in late-June 2019

Competition is intensifying in the Australia-Bali market as Malaysia’s Malindo Air launches services in 2Q2019 from Adelaide and Sydney to Bali, using fifth freedom rights. Virgin Australia is also launching services from Darwin to Bali in Apr-2019, and Qantas is adding capacity from Sydney to Bali by upgauging to A330s.

Malindo already competes on the Melbourne-Bali and Brisbane-Bali routes and its Indonesia-based sister airline Batik Air serves Perth-Bali. With the launch of Adelaide and Sydney the Lion Group will therefore compete on the five largest Australia-Bali routes. 

Malaysia’s AirAsia X is also now considering the launch of services from Bali to Australia using fifth freedom rights, taking a page from the strategy playbook of rival Malindo. However, AirAsia X will have to settle on a limited number of frequencies or wait for Malaysia to negotiate an expanded air services agreement with Indonesia, since the current bilateral caps the number of fifth freedom Bali-Australia weekly frequencies to 28.

 

Interesting information in my eyes!
