The BKI - HND was operated by the B738, it was for a short time only before handed down to D7 during the share swap. 

Malaysia were only given 7 slot pairs by the Japanese govt. - all night time slots. At that time, 3 each were given to D7 and MH and the remaining was reserved for cargo (Transmile). IIRC, the cargo slot was never used and D7 took that too...

 

Interestingly, more HND slots have been awarded in recent years and Malaysia never got any extra. I wonder if MAVCOM applied for more slots?

MH will be adding a 4th daily DPS flight at less than ideal (to put it mildly) schedule:

 

MH867  KUL2100 - 00:05+1DPS 738 D

MH866  DPS0110 - 0410KUL 738 D

 

IIRC, MH had a similar schedule before and that flight didn't last long. The silver lining is pax on this flight won't have to endure Bali traffic to get to/from their hotels :D

 

I've done these exact 2 flight numbers as a turn before. I thought it was great as i didn't have to take any leave :)

Per the airlineroute archives:

Malaysia Airlines from 01AUG13 is introducing 4th daily Kuala Lumpur Denpasar service, where itll operate during midnight hours from Kuala Lumpur on board Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

MH715 KUL0850 1150DPS 772 D
MH851 KUL1205 1505DPS 772 D
MH853 KUL1520 1820DPS 738 D
MH867 KUL2330 0230+1DPS 738 D

MH866 DPS0435 0730KUL 738 D
MH714 DPS1250 1550KUL 772 D
MH850 DPS1605 1905KUL 772 D
MH852 DPS1920 2215KUL 738 D

MH866 begins from 02AUG13.

Ah! Gracias. Not much better from before.

There were no Japanese carriers flying HND-KUL during the second round of slots allocation hence Malaysia did not receive extra nighttime or daytime slots at that time.

Didn't know DPS is conducive for B2B turns. Will keep that in mind ;)

The old 867/866s 2hr turnaround made it easier

Does the new DPS int'l terminal facilitate easy airside turnaround?

 

Have only experienced same plane turnaround in the old terminal and I caused quite a bit of chaos as they had to open a locked gate - and many people were sent looking for whoever had the keys - to do everything airside.

On December 18, MAB has been awarded air traffic right from KUL to DPS +7 weekly, BKK +4 weekly, NKG +1 weekly and SYX 2x weekly. All will commence on Mar 19. So, DPS is the first one to go official.

It's not. I was a bit gung ho with that one :P

I seem to recall it being a bit less than 2 hours, but certainly longer than normal turns.

No it doesn't. It's terrible :P will not try that again for sure!

Japan's MOT announced that US will get a huge chunk of the ~50 new daytime slots available at HND wef NS2020 schedule. 24 slots were allocated for JP-US routes (12 slots each for American/Japanese carriers) - that's a lot! That means Malaysia will be fighting for the remaining 13 slots (I'd assume the other 13 slots are reserved for Japanese carriers, making 26 slots). The silver lining is NH serves HND-KUL and I'd be very surprised if Malaysia receives none (Malaysia's current BFF is Japan - so hopefully Mr. Loke / Dr. M can sweet talk into getting more for Malaysia).

MH will increase MEL to 17 weekly, this will only be from 01JUL to 30SEP. I think MH is testing the market too see if a third service is sustainable before committing to a year round increase. The service will also give Tullamarine a morning KUL service since D7 went to Avalon. I wonder if D7's move has had a positive impact on MH - though price is still the main motivator for these services. 

 

Malaysia Airlines in the 3rd quarter of 2019 is increasing Kuala Lumpur – Melbourne service, as overall service increases from 14 to 17 weekly. Additional service will operate from 01JUL19 to 30SEP19, KUL departure. A330-300 operates this route.

MH129 KUL0920 – 1915MEL 333 D
MH149 KUL2210 – 0755+1MEL 333 D
MH147 KUL2355 – 0950+1MEL 333 157

MH146 MEL1155 – 1815KUL 333 126
MH148 MEL1355 – 2030KUL 333 D
MH128 MEL2330 – 0600+1KUL 333 D

Wow, pretty cool seeing an airline so quickly fill in the gap (from a slot perspective).

 

AK is too committed to Avalon to ever make a return here.

I think D7 remembers what a cheap airport with a cow shed can do for passenger volumes - the LCCT virtually helped make Airasia Group what it is today.

LCCT also helped KLIA grow from a sleepy airport to become a bustling 40m pax per annum airport.

Apples and oranges. AK/D7 had the ability to grow at that cow shed. Unless Air Asia Group secures an Australian AOC, AVV will just be the origin or destination for all pax (with very minimal non-interline transfers to OOL, ADL, and SYD on JQ but D7 already flies to OOL/SYD).

 

AVV is also much further away from Melbourne's CBD than MEL where as KUL's former LCCT and KUL T1 is almost equidistance to KL's city center (and AK/D7 gets the benefit of transferring to/from other airlines operating at KUL even though it's a non-interline transfer).

 

And the Aussie PSC (WY) for MEL is AUD $21 where as at AVV is AUD $20! Score! Btw, did Air Asia removed the ability to see the breakdown of taxes?

Wow. Expect a war with the authorities in Australia soon? No?

Appears that you can only see it at the end page, and not in the middle of booking
