I use the Skyscanner app for all my travel bookings for my PER-PEN-PER trips 8-10 times per year.

This week I've started noticing some really odd Malindo search combinations such as:

PER-DPS-KL-PEN the first sector is on Batik and this bizarre one PER-KL-SIN-PEN.

To be fair to OD they are much cheaper than MH for travelling at peak holiday periods in early Jan.

Seems OD cant allign their operations at the moment. One of the major issues folks have leak is Etops rating and flightplan requires both captain and co-pilots to be rated and took classes for it however training and sim constraint slot in Jakarta means longer time to get FO's online for line training and OD already having issues with staff shortage. This is why OD needs its own 737ng sim instead of churning out quick cockpit crew but each batch with different classes taken. This has sometimes and most of the time cause pre planned flights to india and aussie to deviate slightly and remain closer to land thereby causing the flights block time taking longer. This brought on by the fact operation is unable to set different flying block time for certain regional sectors as u may have etops rated capts and fo crew to ply the straight flightplan today then having non etops rated crew being prepped for route on the next day. These combination cause a very long domino affect on certain aircraft pattern results the serious amount of retiming and rescheduling.

When OD151/152 and 155/156 is operated by a non EDTO/ETOPS aircraft flying over DPS then inland over Western Australia doesn't actually increase the flight time by anything significant.

Aussie routes are not affected much its mostly the west bound routes to india, the difference is quite significant when the plane has to do nearly 4 long sectors in a day.

My problem stems just from one fatal booking move made by OD with disastrous domino effect . I am pretty sure it was due a person in ticketing office with IQ of mean of general population /2 who made the mistake in KLIA yesterday.

Care to elaborate bro? Have been super prudent too with my booking timing with OD especially connecting flights.

OD has received traffic rights from MAVCOM for daily KUL-DPS-MEL flights effective April 18.

Is this route achieveable with a B739ER?
