This Maybank analyst must be really dreaming to even suggest this.  SIA will never buy or jv with MAB and given Malaysia politics will not be able to do so too.  On other airlines, dont see any foreign airline would want to jv or buy into MAB as the only advantage perhaps is the domestic Malaysia market which Air Asia have the most and better advantage.  And dont see MAB even able to make any small profits in the near future.

MH & SQ were once called Malasia Singapore Airlines before demerged in 70s. I always thought the merger of MH with any other potential airlines could be SQ, or OW alliance such as QR or QF.

No sane commercial enterprise would dare to touch MAB. It does not have any value proposition! Khazanah will have to give it away.

political aside...... commercially speaking, SQ will not be interest in merging with MH at all. unless SQ is given full authority in position & human resources allocation.

Whoever first suggested the idea for MH-SQ to merge should be shot. And if s/he survived, s/he should shot again and again.

Why would SQ being one of the most awarded airline filled with high calibre professionals want to be dragged through the mud by merging with MH? Dr. M's and typical Malaysians ego are too huge for such wet dream.

And I thought Malaysians are relatively non-violent citizens 🙄

You do realize that you just made a death threat right?

Rumours mill claimed Khazanah was talking to a mab ex-ceo for advisory role.

Does it mean current CEO days is numbered?

Because he's an operator, not a flashy guy parachuted in by Khazanah.

Remember, he was the MAS pilot involved in the 777 world record flight.

Mavcom: MAS, Japan Airlines tie-up in the works

 

The proposed tie-up between Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Japan Airlines Co Ltd (JAL) is undergoing public consultation, the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) said.

Online portal The Malaysian Insight reported that a consultation paper with details on the first of its kind of such an arrangement for a local airline would be available on Mavcom's website until May 27.

A Mavcom spokesperson said the time frame for a decision on the application differs for each case.

"The time frame for assessing an individual exemption varies on a case-by-case basis, depending on factors, such as the complexity of the case and cooperation from the applicants," the spokesperson was quoted as saying.

Accordingly to the report, MAS recently confirmed that it had submitted an application to Mavcom, seeking an exemption under Section 51 of the Mavcom Act 2015 to pursue the arrangement with JAL.

The exemption relates to Section 49 of the Mavcom Act, which prohibits an agreement between enterprises with a possible effect on competition or has an objective to prevent, restrict or distort competition in any aviation service market.

"Malaysia Airlines confirms that it has submitted to Mavcom an application for an individual exemption under Section 51 of the Act for a joint business with Japan Airlines for flights between Malaysia and Japan.

"The joint business is subject to regulatory approvals and Malaysia Airlines will share more details once approvals are granted,” the airline reportedly told the news portal.

 
 

 

The report noted that both JAL and MAS had experience dealing with financial issues and that MAS had overcome its bankrupt status filed in 2010 to become the world’s most profitable airline.  

However, MAS continues to record losses even after it was subjected to a 12-point turnaround plan by Khazanah Nasional Bhd.

Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad had said the government is reviewingvarious options on future of the loss-making national carrier.

Maybe Tan Sri Aziz? He was rather vocal about MH after Mueller took over.

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

Lets hope that this allows MAB to deploy their A380s to Japan more often.

Still subject to regulatory approval, no?

 

The A380 has been removed from regular commercial operations (currently serving Saudi Arabia charter flights only). And if MH gets HND slots, they can't use their 380s there as well as HND is not 380 capable.

I think  they use the A388 on the KUL-MED-KUL scheduled flights a few times a week. Also yesterday, they used the A388 on the KUL-HKG-KUL for MH432/433. Maybe they will reinstate the A388 on the KUL-NRT-KUL route with the new agreement. Hope they get to start the HND flights too with a widebody to connect to JLs flights to North America. At present, some flight options requires a change of airports and it is a 90 minute train ride.
