Also stated...

The ambitious budget carrier, which has ordered 15 new Airbus A330 aircraft for its medium-haul routes which will start arriving from September 2008, also plans to acquire another two leased A340s in mid-2008.

"This will allow us to fly to London or Manchester, whichever airport imposes lower airport charges," Azran said.

Do you have any idea what is the seat configuration of the A330's? If its 3-3-3 in economy? The article mentioned 390 seats--including 28 "premium" seats, but what about the seating charts?

Hey, another A340 customer? I was already wondering how they were planning to fly fully loaded A333s from KUL to places like MAN or LHR.

I see they also paint their name on the belly of the plane, seems a lot of carriers are doing that these days.

There is nothing wrong with them talking to Boeing about the 787, but my guess is that they'll go for the A350.

Anyway, thanks for posting the link, since LTU's livery changed, there was a need for a "Big red" A330.

Air Asia X said it'd be launching its first route (probably to Australia) from KUL before Jet* launched its first KUL-SYD flight. But that hasn't materalised.

There is virtually zero news about X. And it's very frustrating.

Surely the A340 isn't the optimal plane for a long-haul budget carrier, with its high operating costs.

X did say that it'd be flying KUL-UK via SHJ, BAH, or KWI with the 330. Is it now thinking about non-stop KUL-UK?

Not much higher than those of an A330, but with more range.

ATW yesterday posted:

"AirAsia X's first 396-seat A330 is due to arrive in Kuala Lumpur today for the carrier's service launch later this month. The A330 will be the first of three leased by the long-haul LCC to arrive with another 10 on firm order to be delivered next year. Air Asia X initially will launch flights from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne Avalon and London Stansted."

What extraordinarily little information there is seems to differ from publication to publication. I guess the best advice is to just wait and see.

I read somewhere that they plan to use BAH as a long-haul hub. Would actually make sense, fuel should not be too expensive there, and to a route such as KUL-STN it would only add 550km. Non-stop might be a bit too long for a 396-seat A333.

The pics from MalaysianWings show that it is a 2-4-2 in EY.

Which high costs? The A343 is more fuel efficient then the 772 but can carry less payload. If you meant the A345 or A346 the costs are higher.
