Good on QR. They are now flying 24x weekly to KUL (more than EK) as well as 3x to PEN. With LGK soon to come, they will become the largest middle east airlines in Malaysia in terms of number of flights. I thought BKI will be the next destination especially after PEN.

Somehow, I sensed that this will be routed via another destination (PEN?, HKT?) to make it viable all year round.

Tag ons did not work last time when QR tagged on HKT to KUL. They returned with a direct flight and it is doing OK. Similarly, PEN is a direct flight. So, I think LGK should be the same.

This one deserves its own thread and CONGRATS to Langkawi for this massive achievement!

QR tagged HKT to KUL before load on DOH-HKT is justified.

You can only say tag-ons failed to work if the destination is completely abandoned.

The fact that QR operated direct flights to HKT much later showed that tag-ons worked to build traffic and presence.

QR announced at ITB that they will fly 3 weekly flights to Langkawi beginning 15OCT2019 using 787. As with all QR announcements, take it with a grain of salt until QR finally lands in LGK. 

 

Other destinations:

Izmir, Turkey

Malta

Rabat, Morocco

Davao, Phillipines

Lisbon, Portugal 

Mogadishu, Somalia
