MH also flies B744 on LHR-PEN/LGK-KUL
BKI only gets the very occasional B744 during festive seasons. (same with KCH)
CDG does not alternate but solely 4x weekly B744
FRA does not alternate but solely daily B772
KUL-NRT is 2x daily B772
KUL-PEN does not have any widebodies except A332/3
PEN-KUL has a 2x weekly MH007 carrying on from LHR-PEN-KUL
MXP-LGK vv charter AFAIK there is no MXP-PEN vv
KUL-BNE is a mix of A332 and B744. B744s continue onto AKL 3x weekly.
KUL-MAA is to be upgraded to B744

And as mentioned before: "MH: TPE/LAX, LHR, MAN, AMS, SYD, JNB, CPT, EZE"

PVG used to see weekly B744s but is now 13 weekly B772.

Other routes get the occasional tail swap to a B744 esp at this upcoming peak season. KUL-PEN vv gets B744s during festive seasons too.

Hi Lhr001,

I no longer have access to those information. But I still may know if the flights are flying into and out of PEN. So sorry I don't know what the loads are like. But I do know for one thing that this Dec most European flights are PACKED with LONG waiting lists, some even closed waiting lists. But I have also heard they might want to re-route FCO? I am not sure.

Lhr001,
In case of charters, most airline don't have to care about loads.

If an airline is smart enough and knows how to make business, they go sure that the company who charters the flight(s) will take the risk as well. I'm sure MAS has done it that way.

If flying on FCO to KUL before 12DEC03 there are still seats available in most classes (even the lower sub-classes).

SQ's flights to Chennai are operated by B777-200 5X weekly and the remaining 2X with B747-400, also SIN-TPE-SIN is currently served daily by B747-400 during the winter season. SQ's extra 3X weekly additional service to AKL is operated by B777ER...

Behramjee - Manchester gets pretty good loads as MAS picks up a lot of passengers travelling from the North of England to Malaysia and onwards to Southeast Asia and Australia/NZ. Apart from that, there are large numbers of Malaysians living in the north of England - with Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester continuing to be popular with Malaysian university students and many have simply settled up north having finished their studies either married or working up there.

At one time, the largest foreign student group in Manchester were Malaysians. Perhaps a reason to why MAS does slightly better than SQ as MAS is not as reliant on onward traffic for the Oz market out of Manchester.

As a side-line - the largest group of Manchester United supporters outside of the UK also happen to congregate in Kuala Lumpur - the Reds even went as far as opening a football theme bar in the city centre during their last visit there...

Manchester 2002 / Kuala Lumpur 1998 - Commonwealth Games - further brought the City Chambers of both cities closer and there is a reasonable stream of business travellers on the route today.

Re : Lhr001
"KUL-BKI (occasionaly)" - that is an understatement, believe me !

There is only one pic on A.net of a 747 at BKI and should the contributor is reading this, thank you ! I was also there on the same day (upon its arrival), albeit from a much less strategic location and my attempts with the camera are not even worth discussing further ! I would hazard a guess that you were at T2 (Air Asia) terminal for the shot ?

Little trivia here... SIA at one time was the world's largest operator of the 747-400 numbering at 39 (correct?). Even surpassing BA and JAL (world's largest operator of 747s in total).

Unfortunately, the number is now slowly dwindling and the decline was excerbated by SARS as some were removed from service.
