Finally!! It feels a bit sad KL has been given a rough ride with some of the older aircraft by etihad, Turkish and Qatar.. (although QR has 24 weekly services)

Yes indeed, their A332 services out of KUL has seen better days. QR on the other hand claims that their A330s are a better product than some of their other aircrafts. Oh well, no consistency between KUL and QR services despite the Oneworld connection. Good news nevertheless for KUL.

Older aircraft on TK? TK uses the A333 for its KUL flights which I find pretty comfortable and it's new. 2-2-2 in J for the 333 vs 2-3-2 in J for the 77W.

 

QR has 21 weekly services. 24 weekly was only during summer peak (which I think was canceled - QR had those extra 3 weekly flights in the GDS for some time but I don't think those flights actually took off).

KUL will get a daily Q-Suites fitted 77W next year (at least that's what is shown in the GDS now) but with QR, you wouldn't know what aircraft you'll be in until it shows up at the gate. I've been QR-ed a few times. A333 is horrible for J, but I think it's decent for Y, much better than the 787/77W for sure.

 

QR also use A330-200 on DOH-PEN route and no more B787-800.

Some flights in November are still on the 788.

 

789 + etihad c/s + daylight transit = wow

It's still the same schedule as before, the only difference is Etihad reduced their flights from 2 to 1 daily.

Serious?  Seems like their morning flight has been consistently 788.  Which flight was swapped?

I'm sure many non-avgeeks in QR's A346 Y cabin also appreciate the very much more generous leg room there, as compared to the newer sardine cans in their fleet :)

Direct flight between Malaysia and Germany on Condor Airlines

KUALA LUMPUR: Condor Airlines landed at the KL International Airport (KLIA1) for the first time this morning, making it the 58th passenger airline to use the airport.

It will be the only airline to offer a direct flight between Malaysia and Germany. Its Kuala Lumpur (KUL)-Frankfurt (FRA) route will be three times a week on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. The FRA-KUL route will be on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

For its inaugural flight here, Condor Airlines' B767-300 aircraft flew from Frankfurt International Airport in Germany to KLIA1 with Germany's ambassador to Malaysia, Sarah Nava Rani Al Bakri Devadason, on board.

Group of Airlines Director of Customer Operations, Managing Director & Accountable Manager of Condor Airlines, Christian Schmitt, were also on the flight.

The passengers were treated to a cultural performance by dancers managed by Tourism Malaysia. They were greeted by Deputy Minister of Transport, Datuk Kamarudin Jaffar and Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and culture Tuan Muhammad Bakhtiar Wan Chik, Deputy Head of Mission And Charge D' Affairs Of German Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, David Krivanek and Chief Strategy Officer of Malaysia Airports Azli Mohamed.

"Condor Airlines is the 58th passenger airline to arrive in KLIA Main Terminal and I would also like to share that KLIA has seen growth with 3.2% passenger growth as of Sept 2018, " said Chief Strategy Officer of Malaysia Airlines, Azli Mohamed.

On the new route, Schmitt said Condor Airlines is excited to be the only airline offering a direct flight connection between Malaysia and Germany.

"Our flights from Kuala Lumpur to Frankfurt provide Malaysian and Southeast Asian travellers with varied opportunities to discover Europe and Frankfurt as one of the most important economic centres in Europe," he said.

"Likewise, European travellers have the chance to discover beautiful Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia. By connecting two cities that are of the same importance for their respective regions, we can promote economic and cultural exchange. This is something we as an airline always particularly encourage".

Here in Germany Condor offers the route to KL very often for a very cheap price.

Looks not good...

Yes, we have seen return fares offered at around MYR 1,700.

 

LH suspended their services some time ago despite no direct competition. Most pax tend to use the ME3 airlines. Lately, it seems that QR are offering the best fares.

So we will have Jeju Air flying in from Seoul and 'Muan', but not Jeju  :D

Not necessarily so. Most airlines usually offer deals during the first few months to promote awareness. They've changed from Thomas Cook 330 to Condor own's 767 with real (albeit angled) business class cabin and also made it year-round instead of seasonal. 

 

They've also partnered up with MH for beyond KUL connections (as opposed to LH where almost all of their pax ends at KUL).
