Another 2 upcoming Malaysia Airlines destinations in China are Kunming and Wuhan.
Looks like MH seriously wish to match SQ/MI's network in China. Soon MH might have to add these SQ/MI destinations as well - Shenzhen, Macau, Fuzhou, Nanjing & Chongqing. SQ/MI currently do not serve Kaohsiung & Wuhan.

That is interesting , I wonder whether A333 is too big for a route like Chengdu, I may be wrong through. I hope to see Wuhan-Singapore being served by one of the chinese airlines, probably China Southern ? B737-800 will be great !
