I had a browse at the AK and D7 destinations from KUL and wonder why AK or D7 do not serve these destinations:

 

1. Haikou - understood there was a fight with MAVCOM so AK dropped it because it pissed-off?

https://www.malaymai...flights/1640894

 

2. Kathmandu - understandably there was a fight with the local partner and Nepali regulators on landing fees/airport charges so AK and D7 dropped it because it pissed-off.

 

3. Mumbai - this is really weird. Is there a bilateral restriction?

 

4. Surabaya - why only QZ serves this route but not AK?

 

5. Xiamen - thought this is a pretty big Chinese city.

 

 

On the flip side, what is so special about Kochi that everyone (AK, MH and OD) serve it? I could only think of an incentive by the airport/local government.

1) Dropping a destination because the airline is pissed off is rather myopic. Mavcom wants to prevent predatory pricing (as implied on the news article you posted)

 

2) It's bilateral restriction. MH/OD have already used 24 out of the 28 available weekly rights available.

 

3) Indeed it is

 

Everybody loves COK but only one loves PUS

When AK dropped Haikou, MAVCOM's action has created a duopoly which is a form of predatory pricing (the very thing it wants to prevent in the first place) and definitely anti-competition. Customer's lost here.

Mavcom did not ask AK to drop their HAK services - AK did it on their own right. Duopoly is not predatory pricing. AK is the sole operator on certain routes too. Nobody is stopping AK from resuming their (limited?) service to HAK. There's also a reason why MH/OD doesn't go beyond 2-3 weekly flights (even though they could).

Not sure about MH, but passenger numbers are good on OD and AK. No statistics but based on pilots experience doing the TRZ flights on both airline. The ground support team in TRZ are super efficient too.

MH doesn't fly to TRZ (I don't think they ever did). COK was a brief stint before it was suspended. I might be wrong, but I think TRZ is mainly VFR traffic where as COK is business and tourist traffic.

There is a Hindu pilgrimage site near TRZ. Not sure what it is but it does contribute to some traffic.

True that. They have both, Hindu and Christian pilgrimage areas. For the HIndu's, there are many temples there within the TRZ area and Thanjavur whereas for the Christians, they have Vellankani which is located 90 minutes towards the coast.

 

Before AK and TRZ, MH and AI used to have plane loads of pax to MAA who would then continue their journey to various destinations within South India including TRZ, BLR, HYD, COK etc.
