According to malaysia airlines latest shedules they will make afew changes in Australia and NZ. In Auckland their current daily 772 service will go back to a 744 but will operate just 5 days a week so capacity will remain about the same unless they use 744 combis.
In Australia Adelaide currently gets 2 772s,2 744s all 4 flights will go to 744s, Sydney and Melbourne currently get 13 744s weekly both will get a 744 and a 772 daily with the 772 operating the Kuala Lumpur Sydney Melbourne Kuala Lumpur flight daily, Perth currently gets double daily service they will have 2 less flights a week. The rest of the services to other cities will stay the same.

Damn, I really liked seeing their 772s out here, not to mention they provided me with my first 777 flight (AKL-KUL). That will leave Korean as the only 772 flight to AKL (though Thai operate the 773).

I thought they were doing extremely well in Aus/NZ. I suppose this has to do with its overall reduction programme in order to cut losses.

Great to see Malaysian Airlines 744 in AKL again. It really looks great in the Nalaysian Airlines livery!!

But i will miss the 772.

Can some one tell me why Thai has dropped the 744 to a 773 on the BKK-SYD-AKL. route. And how long it will last.

MH 744s resume service to Auckland as of the start of the Northern Summer shedules on April 1.

As regards to Thai I think the 773 is year round. I can tell you the 773 is a huge aircraft after seeing TG and KE up close at Akl on Thursday.

Thai 744s were among some of the best looking ones at Akl I used to love seeing the Dragon boats all the time, however all Sydney,Melbourne and Brisbane services now use the 773 so I would say its a route structure move to try to operate the same aircraft to the same region.

The 773 also flies daily to Akl now.

Thai actually 'upgraded' to the 773 as of November.
The 744 only operated TG992 4(?) times weekly - the 773 now fly daily. It's a permanent replacement.

Has anyone seen any other TG 773's at AKL apart from HS-TKA and HS-TKE? My next trip on TG992 will be on the 15th of Feb.. hope it's TKE - it's only a few months old!

After increased their Perth flight from 12 flights per week to 14 flights per week from July last year, it was sad to know to MH will reduce their flight back to 12. Anyway, I wish the Malaysia government will make the decision as soon as possible for the foreign equity and alliance partner.

I wonder why they are reducing so much of their services this Summer 2001 scheldule. The night flight from KL to Melbourne and Sydney will become a point to point service, with 4 of the service to Melbourne extending to Adelaide. The Kuala Lumpur-Sydney v.v., Kuala Lumpur-Melbourne-Adelaide v.v. and Kuala Lumpur-Melbourne v.v. will be operated on its B747-400s. The Kuala Lumpur-Melbourne-Sydney v.v thrice weekly services had been terminated. The daily Morning flight Kuala Lumpur-Sydney-Melbourne-Kuala Lumpur will be using B777-200s instead of 6 times weekly B747-400s.

Elsewhere, in Asia, the 4 times B777-200s weekly Kuala Lumpur-Shanghai v.v. will be replaced by 3 times weekly B747-400s. An additional B747-400 flight to Hong Kong will be mounted in April and another B777-200 flight in September. The thrice weekly A330-300s to Guangzhou will be replaced by 4 times weekly B777-200s. Most of the other Asia services remains the same, with Bangkok and Jakarta having most of their services operated by B777-200 with one or two service operated by A330-300. The Kuala Lumpur-Beirut-Cairo v.v. is operated by B777-200s instead of B747-400s.

In the Europe, the twice weekly B777-200s Kuala Lumpur-Vienna-Munich v.v. services will be terminated and the Munich services will be replaced by thrice weekly B777-200s Kuala Lumpur-Rome-Munich v.v. The twice weekly B777-200s Kuala Lumpur-Vienna-Zagreb will operate as usual.

I don't understand why MAS reduce frequencies to so many destinations. In fact, they should increase frequency to destinations such as London, when BA pulls out from Kuala Lumpur-London route; Paris; Frankfurt; Zurich; Rome; New York and Los Angeles. MAS planned to increase their frequency to Zurich and Frankfurt this summer, but according to their latest scheldules, it remains the same.

Odie:MAS cant increase flights to CDG,LHR or FRA because the various authorities wont be them extra traffic rights.

MAS has already applied to serve LHR 3x day when BA pulls out but the UK authorities have not granted them the flights - let's hope Virgin takeover this third daily flight.

France has also denied MAS further access to CDG citing a lack of traffic on the route...hmm...perhaps its because AF doesn't want to serve KUL reciprocally...MAS had also applied to fly to Nice-Cote d'Azur...Same story applies to FRA.
