I've been tracking MH 0016 (KUL-AMS) for the last week or so as I have had to meet a string of people coming off that flight, and have noticed some pretty significant delays, notably:

19/20-Sep: Scheduled arrival 20-Sep 07:00 / Actual arrival 09:30
01/02-Oct: Scheduled arrival 02-Oct 06:35 / Actual arrival 14:22
06/07-Oct: Scheduled arrival 07-Oct 06:35 / Actual arrival 09:25 via FRA!

Anyone know what's up with MH on this route?

At least they recently changed equipment again from B772 to B744.

Quoting MacSid (Thread starter):
06/07-Oct: Scheduled arrival 07-Oct 06:35 / Actual arrival 09:25 via FRA!

Today's MH016 was supposed to be on time with an ETA in AMS of 06:28lt, but they where indeed diverted to FRA.
I'm not exactly sure why they diverted as the reason was not clearly mentioned in the diversion telex but I believe the flight was running short on fuel.

The other flights where delayed mostly due some small technical problems and last minute aircraft swaps caused by this.

Thanks for the input, Mike. I kinda guessed that today's delay was due to a diversion, but I was just wondering if there were trends developing. Certainly not in keeping with their reputation (albeit one that has taken more and more of a bashing in past years).
