With a lot of flights to/from DPS, I hope OD can spread out the KUL-DPS vv sectors evenly throughout the day and not all 4 or 5 flights arriving in/departing from DPS at around the same time. During my last trip, although OD was my first choice of carrier, the plan had to be abandoned as MH has better arrival and departure time ex DPS.

OD has morning flights ex KUL to DPS with flights returning to KUL around noon. There are also flights ex KUL in the late afternoon with aircraft continuing to Australia. The Australian flights will reach DPS around noon as well, unfortunately making ex DPS flights to KUL concentrated in the midday.

OD will get a lot of traffic if it can get something similar to MH850/851 timing.

 

DPS being in the same time zone as KUL would mean most passengers ex KUL prefer to arrive around hotel check-in time (1 to 3 pm) and depart a couple of hours after hotel check-out time (2 to 4 pm).

 

I paid premium to fly on these timings during the last trip.

DPS is GMT+8, same as KUL. DPS is in the timezone of WITA (Waktu Indonesia Tengah).

PT AirAsia Extra tried Bali-Australia before, but failed miserably even with high load factor. Yield must be s#1t.

I noticed a lot of passengers to DPS from KUL are from Indian subcontinent flights, arriving around sunrise. The flights from DPS arrive KUL around 3 - 4 pm; most flights to Indian subcontinent are around sunset.

 Good idea too.

Malindo has committed to adding three 737-800s over the next few months. The airline is considering more additional 737-800s in 2H2019 but these have not yet been firmly decided. 

All the additional aircraft are being transferred from Lion Group’s Indonesia-based full service airline Batik Air.

 

 

Malindo bases all its ATR 72s at Kuala Lumpur Subang, where it has seven domestic routes and one international route. Malindo has slashed its Subang capacity by 50% since late 2017 – from approximately 30,000 weekly one-way seats to 15,000 seats.

 

 

 

Malindo’s total domestic seat capacity has been reduced by 33%: from 114,000 weekly seats in Mar-2017 to 76,000 weekly seats in Mar-2019 (based on OAG schedules data for the second week of March). International seat capacity has increased by a modest 5% over the same period, from 100,000 to 105,000 seats. 

Malindo has shifted its focus to the more profitable international market but has also significantly slowed down its rate of international growth. Malindo’s international seat capacity reached an all-time high of 120,000 weekly seats during peak periods of 2018, while its domestic seat capacity peaked at 114,000 weekly seats in Dec-2016 and 1Q2017. 

Malindo’s annual seat capacity in 2018 declined by approximately 7%, according to CAPA and OAG data. International seat capacity was still up by 10%, whereas domestic seat capacity dropped by 26%. 

Not surprisingly, passenger traffic also declined in 2018. Malindo carried an estimated 6.7 million passengers in 2018 compared to 7.2 million in 2017.

 

 


However, Malindo’s expansion has not been all smooth sailing. Over the years Malindo has suspended nearly as many routes as it currently operates and it has not yet turned the corner to become profitable.

Just received an email, 15 May onwards...Malindo will no longer serve hot snacks. Guess it's to difficult to differentiate who is eligible for pizzas and who doesn't...so best solution is to serve nothing at all.

The pizza's are a poor excise for food
