MH Axes DXB, JNB, CPT, EZE In Feb 2012 But Add AUH

A surprised news from MH following the silence from them after the share swap with AK.

MH is to withdraw from DXB entirely, leaving EK with its 3 daily flight on the route, one of which will be operated by the A380 beginning 1 Jan 2012, and IY - an insignificant player.

But the airline is adding AUH to its network.

MH will leave the 6 Continents Club when its ultimate far flung route KUL-CPT-EZE vv which has been the long standing amazement and fascination by some for many years will finally be suspended. JNB will also be suspended thus is will officially absent from South America and Africa. Rumour has it that D7 will resume Malaysia's mission to South Africa.

All international flights from BKI will be terminated as MH will yet again close BKI as its Eastern hub. The flip flopping at BKI is acute.

MH will also relocate its head quarters for the second time in a decade.

All were done in serious efforts to cut cost and save the airline from further losing. MH reported a net loss of close to RM 800 million in the first half of 2011.

I'm a bit surprised to see that JNB is being axed -- I thought that was a bit of a performer in the MH network. Whenever I've looked at MH for my flights home, they've been, by far, the most expensive.

I guess that either means the flights have been selling well, or so over-priced they've been going out empty.

I know many of the crews didn't like the KUL - CPT - EZE flights, but the CPT layover was popular. The JNB layover seemed to be popular as well ... will have to see what my crew grapevine says about this.



I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

This is surprising. They maintained EZE for years even when the Argentine economy was in the dumps, and was very popular for Argentines. Many got to Asia for the first time with them on honeymoons or just to try something different from MIA. Plus, there has always been a traditional travel market between Argentina and South Africa that MH served perfectly well.

Maybe it´s become very hard to compete for them now with all the Middle East cariers operating to EZE, plus QF going West?

I flew to CPT last week for a holiday. Load on both sectors was incredibly high (100% for KUL-CPT and more than 90% for CPT-KUL in the Economy Class).

Interesting observation - a significant number of travelers are Chinese national who came from/heading to China and the majority was on their way to/from EZE. Not many people disembark or join the flight in CPT. KUL-CPT sector was served by a Spanish speaking MH stewardess from Mexico named Adriana, who made all the Spanish announcements for the flight. CPT-KUL sector was joined by a male mandarin speaking steward whose presence was actually a saviour to the MH crew on that flight. Chinese passengers to/from China are quite a PITA - they are smelly, loud and ignorant. Sorry to say but it is true.

Understood what failed the route is not because of load nor pricing (return ticket to CPT in Economy Class is sold at the range of RM 7,000 which is higher when compared to other competitors), but rather the restriction of frequency by the South African government (MH is stuck with only 2 weekly flight), the far distance (to EZE) and the current jet fuel price (since MH is operating a fuel inefficient quad engine aircraft on the route). And of course, MH has a larger excess luggage than any other normal legacy airlines. I think I am lucky to be able to fly the route, although halfway, before it is being cut.

As per our GDS source:

Quote:
KUL JNB
KUL CPT EZE
KUL DXB DMM
KUL DXB (except KUL KHI DXB)
are all confirmed cancelled, as MH updated its reservation system in the past 20-30 minutes.

BKI HND
BKI ICN
are to be axed from 01FEB12. Currently waiting for MH to zero out every class of service. Currently some dates after 01FEB12 showing J/Y/B/H available but the rest is closed.

This is MH's massive route cut since early 2006 when the airline first started its Business Turnaround Plan.

Hmm probably depends who you ask. The trip is long very long and the allowances more than make up for it for those that dont have families.
As always in MH there is a certain favouritism in regards to who gets what routes and I think a quick check on the roster says more about how popular the route is than anything else...

A nonstop to either Joburg or Capetown might have worked, but not necessarily, as its very low yielding for MH.
South Africans aren't a major travelling group to Malaysia. The route has been driven by lower yielding African, Antipodean and Asian pax making connections. That never makes money and especially not when we talk these distances and often more connections at the end of the journey.
The rumour was that a famous Malaysians huge investment in a ranch in Argentina kept this route alive and kicking. Whenever the route was questioned it was said that no one dared to cancel it because of this knowledge despite the fact the famous person never ever was involved or demanded the route to be kept. I have no clue if that rumour is true or not...

The hub in BKI always fails. Flying Korean holidaymakers to BKI might have worked before Korean and Asiana started flights to BKI. Now? feels like 3 years to late.
And Japan, why?
My guess would be that the next big group of tourists to KK will be mainland Chinese. I know that Sabah used to discuss this with the chinese government. Thats where you can start flights however these routes are better for Air Asia etc.
BKI is in my humble opinion best served to/from KL only.
Let MasWings handle all Sabah/Sarawak traffic and be done with it.
Must be about a year ago now that staffbase and functions etc for Maswings closed down in Miri (MYY) and went to KK (BKI) so everything there already.

Hey Azizul, my mate, long time no see !!!

Wow, shocking news to nibble on... I know, the South American run had always been a loser for MAS, but I thought that with the surge being experienced by the Argentinian economy, all sectors involved were about to break even. On the other hand, I thought Kota Kinabalu was doing great with traffic to and from Japan... what happened there ?

Sad to see that MAS has not been able to achieve an adequate performance, already for some many years...maybe the carrier still too fat, an in view of the fierce competition from other guys like Air Asia and Emirates, well, a skinnier lady would be in order.

... I am one of those that still think the A380 in MH´s fleet is a mistake, oh well...   

Best regards

Will it make sense for MH to drop domestic network altogether except connecting flights out of KUL to KBI, KCH, LGK, PEN?

Speaking of KUL-KBI O&D market, AK's one way is around 109 MYR (almost $40) after tax if you book way ahead. The government could make it as difficult as possible for people to connect at KUL but most would rather go through crowded LCCT for such a deal.

Let's hope they're not cutting any further, of the 3 airlines serving LAX-TPE, MH is my favorite over BR and CI when flying economy along with a chance for I class upgrade through Optiontown.

Not the best year for Oneworld (who I still don't see bringing much value to MH).

Mexicana, American and JAL all in financial trouble. MH and Kingfisher not doing the best. Qantas having some quite public problems. IAG seems to be the only real performer right now.

It is sad to see the routes cut as well. But if they aren't making money, no reason to keep them around. Has there been any certainity placed on where the A380 will be deployed?

I hope MH turns it around and starts doing better!

Good, get rid of routes that are only held on for prestige or politics. CPT and JNB I can not see being the highest yield, so much tourist traffic and ULH into the mix. EZE Seems purely prestige, and DXB is just EK's territory. I think this is a good move much like what JAL is doing. Yes it is nice to see this widebodies all over the world and these destinations will be missed, but I would rather have a profitable MH instead of a bankrupt MH.

With AA's corner stone hub at LAX once they enter OW we can see this flight go to Daily with feed from AA.
AA will definetly drop its codeshare with BR on this route. I think the TPE-LAX-TPE route will be a good money maker for MH once codeshare begins with AA. This route might even be upgraded to A380 if it turns around alot with entry to OW.

Kind of sad but somewhat expected given the trends in the aviation world these days. Prestige routes are becoming fewer and further in between. No way can a struggling airline maintain 2x weekly flights to far-flung, lower-yielding destinations on higher-CASM aircrafts to operate when paired up against growing Middle Eastern carriers with competitive schedules, newer aircraft, and the backing of a powerful connecting hub on the other end. i pin this decision largely on the market effects of EK and QR's growth in Latin America.

Its good MH refocus on profitability again.

Maybe the former CEO Idris Jala left some notes in his desk for the current regime to follow.

It seemed to me MH was slipping further backwards from the tenants of its 2007 turn-around plan, especially in areas such as staffing, where MH remains bloated and inefficient.

Quoting KL808 (Reply 19):
I think the TPE-LAX-TPE route will be a good money maker for MH once codeshare begins with AA. This route might even be upgraded to A380 if it turns around alot with entry to OW.

Your impressions of code-shares are vastly over stated. Even QF only gets about 100 or so daily AA pax at LAX and that is for 4-5 daily flights. AA-MH code-share will not be some traffic miracle.

But anyhow, getting bodies is not the problem for MH, they do quite all right (2011 LAX LF is 84.1% through Sept.), and remember they served LAX for decades with up to 747 equipment. The problem is doing it profitably. LAX-TPE is a notoriously lower yielding market in which consolidator travel agents playing a key roll selling seats while KUL is simply not much of a market from the US.

In many ways, MH is simply not relevant across the Pacific, by not providing or bringing anything unique or irreplaceable to the market. Even for LAX-KUL traffic segment, both SQ and CX carry more local O&D passengers.
Same problem exist in Europe where MH largely chases a budget customer segment including pushing connections to places like Australia. Hardly the most profitable type of clientele.

MAS has been serving this route much longer than OZ or KE. As a matter of fact, MAS started flying to Seoul from BKI way back in the early 90s. However, for some reason, they just couldn't make it work.

I am not sure about KE but OZ apparently is doing very good in BKI. I flew them very recently. The flight to ICN had about 10 vacant seats while the return flight was full both in Business and Economy Class. Most of the passengers were Korean and this sector (BKI/ICN) is very much an O&D route for OZ.

OZ actually planned to increase their BKI flight to daily back in 2008 but that did not happen and we all know why. Now with MH withdrawing from this sector, OZ may just turns out to be the biggest beneficiary for this route because this means one less competition for them   

By the way, MH's code-share partner on this route (BKI/ICN), KE is still flying to BKI albeit seasonal. If both the Korean carriers are still flying to BKI, it means BKI isn't that bad right ? Why a carrier with an operating cost far lower than the Korean carriers couldn't make this route work is just beyond me  
Quoting MillwallSean (Reply 5):

Don't be too surprised. MAS always makes losses even on the same routes that other airlines are making money. One perfect example is BKI/ICN. MAS has been serving BKI/Seoul for close to 20 years now but is still making losses. OZ on the other hand, which started BKI/ICN just 8 years ago is making money. And this is an airline based in South Korea whose operating cost is much higher.
