They will have A330-300 Leased aircraft that will fit 367 all EY seats. Probably enter service by late August.


367 all Y seats is a very spacious configuration in a A333, D7 usually have 377 including the 12 Premium seats.

Saw D7 cabin crews are tasked to undergo cabin familiarzation on another different type or A330-300. The premium cabin will be sporting 36 flatbeds and economy class is configured in a wider more comfortable 2-4-2 seating. Seems to be more premium configured than their usual standard cabin probably a signal for return to Europe?

I managed to do some digging around and found some answers.

 

A330 Type 1 is actually the aircraft that was delivered to Thai Airasia X and registered as HS-XTG.

 

It currently flies only to Tokyo, maybe because of its more premium configuration. It would appear that Thai Airasia X does not want to spend money reconfiguring this plane until they have more solid plans for it. So it is flying a more premium route as the third daily flight from DMK-NRT and the fares for this flight (XJ 600/601) are a little higher.


This aircraft is ex-China Eastern Airlines painted in "Shanghai Disney Resort" special colours - so this explains the FSC configuration for now...

The reason why 367 Pax for A330 leased for MAAX just because the DOOR 3L&3R are single lane raft. So based on maximum occupance for the raft, its only can carry maximum of 367 pax.

If the current A330, which has 8 doors with dual lane raft, the aircraft can fit up to 440+ pax.

If you guys also noticed, AirAsia group now is rebranding into One AirAsia group. No more X for A330 operations. Their livery for A330 also similar with A320. No more AAX Logo.

Kinda cool configuration for the economy 2-4-2. The 2 window seats ideal for those travelling as couple on tight budget. Those can afford, would go for the Flatbed.

Those who can't afford Flatbed but are willing to spend a tad more can also enjoy the luxuries of 2-4-2 in Y on MH

Now that the final 359 has been delivered to MAB, does anybody have any info on route(s) this 6th aircraft will be deployed to?

Is MH going to get more A350? It seems to be very reliable and is the right size for MH.

Right now, MH is in a big mess with pilot shortage - it is particularly acute with B737 crews. So I think fleet planning is now on the back burner.

 

The A350-900 seems to be the ideal foundation for MAB to revive its business and its network. It is versatile (see how SQ and QR uses them) and has great reliability. It is also easy for A330 crews to convert to the A350. Logically, MAB should order more as the A330 fleet gets old and are retired. Once the airline is on a sound footing, MAB can even consider returning the A380 to regular service!

Airfleets is showing A333 9M-XBD ex B-6119 as the next leased acquisition.

Any idea what configuration she'll be in?

Should be C38Y262,the original MU layout. XJ took in one recently without complete reconfiguration.

J class is the same as D7 own seat type and 2-2-2 arrangement, economy is slightly different in 2-4-2 layout.

Yes, it is a good possibility but D7 has also mentioned that it is considering a single class high density configuration to be deployed on their China routes.

 

Maybe, like XJ, this slightly more "luxurious" configuration might be used for its Japanese and/or HNL routes.

Thanks Nabiel. 367 is hardly high density. Even lower than D7 own A330ceo...Lion Air is pushing 440. Cebu Pacific 436! OMG.... Horror for cabin crews...

I believed they wanted to put 400+- TOB for a better profit but since this lease aircraft comes with different door and only equip with single escape slide, so 2 (D3L&R) doors cant be used during ditching and only 6 doors with slide raft will be used during ditching.

There is a maximum occupants for each rafts so that is why the 367 comes in. Compared to current D7 A330s, all of them equip with dual lane slide rafts for all doors.
