  1. Looks like the next flight is due tomorrow and this coming Saturday. However nothing is loaded for next week.
  2. Apparently the a333p2cargo will be 2x weekly doing TWU-HKG(Wednesday & Saturday) until Airasia and Malaysia Airlines restores optimum inter SDK/TWU/LHD feeder flights to BKI. As of now the fruit and seafood export supply chain is affected due to passenger airline frequency cuts from Movement order and foreign demand somehow is also peaking up. Usually Seafood and fruits exports are on multiple inter Sabah flights onboard atr72, 737s and a320s passenger belly(Each flight carrying 1tonne or so) flying into BKI then from there transferred to a Maskargo A332Fs or AK A320s flights to Hong Kong. At Hong Kong some of the items will be split up and flown on another dedicated air freight towards China and Japan. Before covid in rare cases the Japanese sometimes charter Private Jets to Bki Twu or SDK to pick up the goods. 😂
  3. Knowing mab ill probably head to nowhere with no concrete plan and heading with just 3.5bil to operation to sustain operation to 2025.
  4. While Thai airways has retired all old 772s, 744s, and 15 a333s downsizing to just 34 widebody aircrafts. They have already secured financing for 3 new b777-300ER, 2 B787-9, 2 a350-900 at least keeping overall product new.
  5. Problem now with majority of the crew in that fleet gone and no simulator as its sold. To reactivate and rehire and retrain everyone overseas whislt leasing back the plane it would take more than a year to get things sorted out.
  6. They can and are allowed to send multiple frequency and their 77w are not high density either with not much cargo. Garuda which retrofitted their 777-300ER thrice is still too heavy.
  7. That's the problem with the buying power here. Starting salary is still rm1.4k out of the city area. You can get higher than average in Thailand and Vietnam now. To drop fares to unsustainable levels just to fill up the planes at 80% above break even and expect aux income to do the rest is not long term ideal.
  8. 2017 fares Msia is ranked the cheapest by both low cost and Full service carriers. "The agency’s investigation found, on average, Malaysia enjoys the lowest cost for air travel of any country. At just $4.18 per 100 km, it’s the leading country for flight value. Malaysia’s long-haul, full-service flights cost passengers an average $5.90 per 100 km, while long-haul, low-cost fares are some of the cheapest in the world at $1.81 per 100 km." https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.finder.com/ranked-the-cost-of-air-travel-in-80-countries%3famp I think the airlines here need to overhaul the pricing mechanism. 2017 prices alone plus ringgit depreciation up to year 2019 its probably even worse now.
  9. Might not be as feasible. Infact Saudi Arabian Airlines is the best choice for Indonesians now its direct and cheaper than Garuda and they are allowed multiple frequency into Jeddah compared to other carriers. Might expect them to expand with mab and thai pulling out.
  10. Umrah is all year round only Haj is seasonal. Indonesia does occasionally lease a few European based charter like wamos air though its for Haj only. Jakarta 3 runways is still not rated for 340 tonne above weight aircrafts lol. So high density 748s 77w and a380 still cant land there.
  11. Heard the planes will no longer leased by mab and will be put on long term storage until another buyer or leaser comes(highly unlikely as the spec mab configured is too low spec interested party like Emirates and BA have turned away due to this). As for Indonesia even with a large bulk of 330s it wont he able to suffice Saudi's strict slot timing restriction. Unless Garuda sends 400++ seaters and reduce the frequency. A big margin of Indonesians have also used Thai airways but now thai is also not keen on doing feeder umrah and haj. Friends in indonesia have complained the haj umrah fares by lion and garuda to be very pricey when compared to flying with Saudia and other Carriers.
  12. Insider info is that the Dugong is officially leaving the fleet for good. While local Haj Umrah capacity will not be affected as the A330 could supply, substantial indonesian pilgrims transiting would have to source other means as the feeder service is likely gone for good.
  13. Atr services in Peninsula to continue but with a very small fleet. RBLink though is dead.
  14. Info from my indonesian friend is that Lion air is seeking bankruptcy soon. Currently the board and upper management is seeking to apply another newer AOC to transfer some of the assets over. Due to this no funding will be given to Thai Lionair and Malindo.This might've hasten in Malindo in terminating 2k staffs yesterday. Original downsizing fleet to just 13 atrs and 12 737ng might be scrapped as well to an even smaller fleet. Not sure how much Batik Indonesia is affected. Rumors out also that co founder Pak Rusdi Kirana of Lion Air might be facing cbt charges just so after another Indonesian Tycoon Benny Tjokrosaputro was jailed for life from stock manipulation charges.
  15. One way 45 minute flight ticket in S.korea costs 100-300usd and it is similar in Indonesia with their local currency converted. Whereas pre covid KUL-PEN ranges from 30-150usd. Something is definitely wrong there.
