For those that may have missed it, OD's B738 9M-LNV has been leased to Fiji Airways to provide coverage for their grounded MAX's.

Read somewhere that it was fully crewed by OD tech and cabin crew with the addition of a FJ purser.

Still intrigues me that OD can afford to wet lease out 2 738's and still operate their full network including their recently introduced routes, I just can't fathom to understand their fleet logic. That said their does seem to be noticeably less aircraft parked opposite the B gates at KLIA.

Seems clear to me OD is still unsure of their business strategy. Let's hope the new team led by CEO Capt Mushafiz could put things into better perspective.

Yes, it is good to see those sleeping airframe put to good use. I think OD are leasing out as much extra capacity as they can and and utilising those remaining harder with shorter turnaround and milking them to dry. There was an interview recently with outgoing CEO Chandran Rama Muthy which he gave a lot of information on OD current and future operation.

 

He mentioned they are also leasing out their B737NG to Samoa Airways as well for cover for MAX grounding too. They have leased out two new ATR 72 to Royal Brunei recently, delivered in all white livery.

 

In terms of strategy, they have confirmed they are now a full service carrier. Aiming to be profitable by 2021 (8 years after initial service!!)

 

Next stops will be Sydney and Da Nang. The scissor hub in Bali must be working well for them.

 

They are expecting four more B737-800NG and two ATR 72 before end of 2019.

The Sydney service has already commenced.

I would dispute that OD are now are full service carrier also, they launched as a hybrid carrier back in March 2013, with all inclusive fares, now they've gone down the LCC/bundled tier fares model. Further to this the fares I've looked at once ancillaries are added in they were more than MH on a number of sampled flights originated ex Perth.

The likes of QF, SQ and CX are FSC, Malindo/Batik Malaysia are just plain confusing about their identity and place in the market. They have so much potential but have slid down the totem pole further. The should've kept the hybrid model and if needed reduced their generous allowances.

Being Australian but spending a considerable amount of time in MY, I can truthfully say Aussies vote with their wallets, they need to complete the rebrand and distance themselves from aircraft which resemble Lion Air.

I'm guessing the alleged incoming incoming 737NG's are from Batik?
