I won't be at all surprise if MAHB offers EK incentives to bring in their A380.

Emirates may introduce three more flights out of Kuala Lumpur from March 2011 should it continue to enjoy growth in passenger numbers.

Year-on-year, the airline has managed to grow passenger numbers by 40 per cent.

"I think by March, there is an indication we may add three more flights, at the moment we have 21 flights a week, we are looking at the possibility of making it 25 times a week," Emirates Malaysia manager Kavin Martinus told Business Times.

Emirates is already the second largest airline flying out of Kuala Lumpur, after national carrier Malaysia Airlines (3786).

Martinus also said its very own Airbus A380 could come into the market sooner than later.
"The A380 depends a lot on the first and business class revenue stream, and if this improves further, by 20 per cent on top of the present growth, then there's a possibility it will come into KL," he said.

The carrier's first and business class segments have managed to grow passenger numbers and yield at 40 per cent and 20 per cent respectively this year, compared to 2009. This has contributed to a 70 per cent surge in revenue from the two segments.

Emirates operates 14 A380s, with 76 more on order.

An A380 could take over from one of the B777s plying the Dubai-KL-Dubai route.

While the B777 seats about 400 passengers with 42 business class seats, the A380 holds about 500 passengers with almost double the number of business class seats.

This makes it essential for Emirates to grow its business class passenger numbers for both ways (Dubai-KL-Dubai) before it can start using the jumbo jet to service the market. Emirates in Asia Pacific, offers one of the largest number of seats on a daily basis.

The smallest frequency it has in the region is out of Jakarta (to Dubai), which has double daily flights.

"We have a lot of capacity out of Asia Pacific, so it is a growing region for the company," Martinus said.

I think even the SIA Group and CX may be bigger than EK out of KUL.

EK offers 3 daily flight KUL-DXB, 2 doing DXB-KUL-DXB & 1 doing DXB-KUL-MEL-KUL-DXB.

By seat numbers offered, EK is the biggest foreign carrier at KUL, bigger than SQ & CX.

Year-on-year, the airline has managed to grow passenger numbers by 40 per cent.

Emirates is already the second largest airline flying out of Kuala Lumpur, after national carrier Malaysia Airlines (3786).

Lets pull out the numbers based on the exhibit from our Statistic's thread. In 2009, the standing was like this:

So by having a 40% increase year on year, EK's number for 2010 is 576,321 passengers. Assuming all the other airlines' figures remain static, EK is bigger than SQ and CX, but their number is still lower than QZ, D7, AK and MH, making it the 5th largest airline in KUL for international segment in 2010. Therefore, I can confidently say that unless he omitted all the 3 airlines at the LCCT, the EK Malaysia Manager made a false claim that 'Emirates is already the second largest airline flying out of Kuala Lumpur, after national carrier Malaysia Airlines'. His claim is only valid if he refers to airlines operating out of KUL MTB only.

However, 40% is a huge growth. Based on past trends, I am very sure SQ and CX do not record something close to 10% for their annual passengers' growth in KUL. SQ's number should be declining as well, as more flights are transferred to MI in 2010. SQ's numbers have been steadily declining since 2007.

How many flight per week MH operate to DXB?

A pathetic 7 weekly (and NOT daily) LOL! 5 nonstop, 2 via KHI.

3 weekly KUL-DXB-BEY vv
2 weekly KUL-DXB-DMM vv
2 weekly KUL-KHI-DXB vv
.
.
The article mentioned EK needs a further 20% growth of premium class passengers ON TOP of the present growth (which is 40% for FCL and 20% for JCL) before KUL can see the A380. That is a big number to show. I don't think KUL is up for it for the time being.

without checking the schedule, it has to be London (LHR & LGW) & some of the middle east countries like BAH, DOH, KWI.

FD numbers are too low to make the list. There's an exhibit that showed FD's number in the Statistic's thread. In 2009, FD only carried 266,452 passengers in KUL, lesser than MI at no. 10 in the ranking.

If MH couldn’t compete with EK at home base, wonder how MH could compete with EK on kangaroo route. Believe it is time to relook at MH business model again.

Looks like Emirates will be the first A380 operator into KUL this winter (effective Dec. 1, 2011). Per this Flyertalk link, EK 346/347 will be upgauged to A380. :)

This was also mentioned in Airline Route Blog.

Also, per the Airline Route post from above, EK will introduce B77W with F Class Suites on EK's DXB-KUL-MEL route beginning Oct. 30, 2011

Very nice! Obviously EK is the biggest operator in KUL. I hope they can still maintain their frequencies to KUL even after upgrading certain flights to the big bird!

Hopefully they can consider KUL as a hub to expand to the regional routes. MEL is already a good start!
