London - Kuala Lumpur in my opinion is similarly annoying to book tickets on. As a frequent flyer on the route, MAS flights are often full to the brim. This is despite flying double/thrice daily 747s out of LHR and 4 times a week out of Manchester.
Even as KLM and MAS flights out of Amsterdam continue to cope with this overspill from secondary UK airport departure points - it surprises me that UK and Australian carriers still continue to plug Singapore as an alternative! Its like trying to convince people in Victoria or Queensland that an airline serves them albeit by flying into Sydney...

I would also like to see Manchester - Kuala Lumpur to be upgraded to at least daily flights. Earlier, their 777 services were upgraded to 744, so I guess it's now the time to further increase the frequency. I believe obtaining a slot in MAN would be a lot less headache than in LHR.
