Wonder if our current PM would suggest some new routes to MAB

 

LAX direct perhaps? Either the A350 or 787-9

As much as I would love a LAX-KUL nonstop, it wouldn't be happening in the near future. Nonstop flights on UA for LAX-SIN is yours for $380 USD! And if you are flying to KUL, the UA/NH JV covers it well - flights are frequently $400 USD or less. Then they have corporate contracts to fill up the premium cabin. Where is MH going to get the corporate contracts from?

I flew MH LAX-MEX in 1993.

 

SQ with the GRU- BCN route - not sure if they made the right decision to kill it. I must have flown at least 10 sectors and it was always almost full, even in F.   The one thing that was not so good is that the plane leaves BCN a bit too early in the morning. If it left only 1 hour later, it would attract a lot more connecting passengers from the rest of Europe.

That's one way or return?

Return?! That's way cheaper than what I paid for last year on QR - and I thought that was already cheap!

Most international tickets aren't reversible (e.g. LAX-KUL fares aren't the same as KUL-LAX fares). Id love it to be - Id save a lot for my flights to EU or Cairo :P

Per GCMAP, the nearest guess would be Gong Kedak in Kelantan (WMGK).

Maybe it is  KJT - Kertajati International Airport the new airport built to replace Bandung's current Husein Sastranegara International Airport which is said to only handle domestic flights in the near future. Currently it's a huge white elephant with hardly any flights, so the talk is that all international flight may soon be forced to transfer there from BDO. With bad land connection, I would just fly to Jakarta and take a bus or train to Bandung as Damri already has transfers from CGK and the railway company is talking of starting some of the regular Argo Parahyangan trains from CGK to Bandung.

 Been flying to BDO a few times, heard about "a new airport for Bandung" but never see anything within logical distance to the city. So where is this KJT?

KJT ... in the middle of nowhere, north east of Bandung. Almost as far from BDO as Jakarta is.

Found it. According to Google Maps, it takes about 2.5 hours to get to old BDO from the new airport.  It takes a few minutes more to travel by road from CGK to BDO.

even a worse positioning compared to PIA vs proposed Kulim IA.
