why would foreign airlines like to do routes like A-MEL-SYD-A? or A-ADL-MEL-A, or sth similar? they can't sell the one way domestic sector anyway in AUS and it's quite annoying sometimes for pax. as far as i know, airlines doing that incld MH,CX,TG,CA,CZ,MU,GA. it just makes me feel reluctant to fly these routes. that makes carriers like SQ,QF,EK more attractive although they are anyway more attractive IMO

Malaysia Airlines don't do that sort of routings for many years now. All destinations are non-stop to KUL. Even BNE-AKL has been axed in favour of non-stop services.

All 3 timetables that I consult : 1) Amadeus 2) MH timetable booklet 3) MH online schedule show that for Jun 26 :

MH128 MEL-KUL non-stop dep. 0015 arr. 0625, B772
MH129 KUL-MEL non-stop dep. 1000 arr. 1930, B772

There's no such thing as MH120 either. Flights to/from Australia begin with MH 122. Your travel agents' quote sounds quite dodgy. In fact, none of the Australian or Auckland services have any stops in between now.

PR is another one, with a AB) (MNL / RPLL), Philippines">MNL-MEL-SYD-AB) (MNL / RPLL), Philippines">MNL routing. It's also done by PR in North America as well, with YVR and LAS.

It's the best way for the airline to serve two overseas destinations with one flight, where yields don't warrant a second flight. The inconvenience is, in my opinion, far outweighed by the fact that you can fly with the carrier to two rather than one destination.

A stop along the way may be inevitable anyway, depending on the day of the week one needs to fly. Take someone wanting to fly from AB) (MNL / RPLL), Philippines">MNL-SYD, for example. QF has two weekly non-stops. QF has a third flight, routed through BNE. PR has three weekly flights, all via MEL. In this case, unless you can take the direct QF flights on the day they're offered, a stop is unavoidable. Throw in the fact that someone may be a PR frequent flyer or there may be a seat sale and suddenly PR sells seats for their AB) (MNL / RPLL), Philippines">MNL-SYD routing... despite the stop along the way.
