According to www.g-kraft.com (Swedish site) have Malaysian Airlines searched for Slots at Stockholm-Arlanda. Here is the timetable: MH90 - landar på Arlanda 15.25 och avgår till Newark 16.40 (mon, thu, sat)
MH91 - landar på Arlanda 10.24 och avgår till Kuala Lumpur 11.20 (tue, fri, son). (This timetable is only preliminary).

They have also received the slots between KUL-ARN-EWR but stil, nothing are settle yet. Rumors telling that they still haven't received the rights for the flights between ARN-EWR. Well, we have to wait and see.

Does this mean lands in ARN at 1525 and depart for Newark at 1640?
MH91 - landar på Arlanda 10.24 och avgår till Kuala Lumpur 11.20
Similarly, arrives into ARN at 1024 and depart for KUL at 1120?
It seems like MH will be using B772 for these flights, but the arrival time into ARN seems to be a little odd. This will probably be MH's first European flight beside London to have a morning departure. Having that said, these flights will be excellent for flights arriving from India and Australia.
Edited: It will be really interesting if MH operate this route without traffic rights from ARN. I doubt this route will be long-term if traffic rights are not granted to MH.

Therefor I assumed that they were going to implement a daily service. Thrice weekly would not be the modus operandi for CO, or would it?
MH is a pretty conservative carrier when it comes to opening up new routes. It is very rare that you will find MH opens a new route, or even increase frequencies for that matter, with a daily flight, unlike its competitors. What MH often overlooks is that a daily flight will attract more premium passengers compared to a 3-4 weekly flight. I too hope that they will fly daily on this route as MH's flights to EWR are doing really well (same goes for LAX). The main reason MH switched from DXB to EWR is to improve yields on the EWR route and hopefully, when the yield increases so will the frequency.
Here's an excerpt from MH's website: From Northern Summer 2004/2005 operating pattern, Stockholm, Sweden will be added on as transit to New York instead of Dubai.
Hopefully, MH will inaugurate flights to SFO and increase its flights to LAX back to daily soon. MH initially planned to fly to SFO back in 1997 before the Asian Economic crisis hit.

Just a little history lesson here (but correct me if I made a mistake):
1937-1963 = Malayan Airways Limited (MAL)
1963-1967 = Malaysian Airlines Limited (MAL)
1967-1971 = Malaysia-Singapore Airlines (MSA)
*MSA succeeded by Singapore Airlines. Malaysian Airline System is born.
1971-1987 = Malaysian Airline System (MAS)
1987-NOW = Malaysia Airlines (MAS)
*Malaysia Airlines is a "Malaysian airline".
*It's not as if SIA is "Singaporean Airlines".
So, once and for all, hopefully, everyone will now know that the official name of MH/MAS is Malaysia Airlines.
SUMMARY: MH or MAS is "MALAYSIA AIRLINES"
*NO OFFENSE to anyone but I'm just sick and tired of some people still calling MH, Malaysian Airlines, especially when the those same people can name the other airlines correctly.
*Another airline commonly spelled wrongly: Qantas (pronounce: Kuan-tas) and not spelled "Quantas".
