13 April 2007
Jakarta (CGK) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL)

Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH710 A330-300
Rego:9M MKS
ETD:1110
ATD:1114
ETA:1410
ATA: 1351
Flight Time: 1.36 hrs
Cruise: 40,000 feet
Seat: 7A Business Class

Pre Flight

As usual, I woke up pretty late for the flight. But still able to make it to the airport with plenty of time to spare. The reason for this trip to Guangzhou is to visit the Canton Trade Fair, hence, my mum, wife, and 2 colleagues decided to tag along for this trip. As my colleagues were with me for the trip and were traveling in Y, I decided to keep them company and just relax at my favorite spotting place at CGK which is at the smoking lounge at the food court.

Saw the usual late morning flights out of Jakarta, but in addition to an SQ B773 parked at the usual stand, there was also the A345 on the usual MH stand.



My ride for the day pulling in next to SQ A345


In Flight
I was one of the first to board my flight in the business class cabin. I did get a surprise though, this is an A330, but its configured with the A332 seats but without the PTVs. Don¡¦t ask me how but, it just is. This even got over MH expert 9M MAR baffled!! Midway through boarding, the aircraft suddenly experienced a huge jolt backwards, and everyone really got shocked expressions on their faces. Even a seasoned traveler like me was shocked. Captain soon came on the PA announcing that something happened during the cargo loading and engineers were checking on the aircraft. Soon the captain also came out of the cockpit to inspect the aircraft from the ground. After a couple of minutes the all clear was given and we were off to KUL.

The flight was over in a jiffy and again its another great flight thanks to the excellent MH cabin crew.

Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Guangzhou (CAN)

Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH376 A330-300
Rego: 9M MKK
ETD: 0930
ATD: 0935
ETA: 1335
ATA: 1320
Flight time: 4.0 hrs
Cruise: 37,000 feet
Seat: 4K Business Class

Pre Flight

We stayed in Kuala Lumpur for 1 night as my colleagues has not been here before. I needed to show them how advanced KL is now especially when you compare it to the little messed up place we call home, Jakarta. We stayed at my favorite hotel in KL which was the Westin in Bukit Bintang.

Room at the Westin




We woke up at 0500 and self drove to KLIA. I really was a soccer mum for the day as I had to drive myself, my mum, wife, and 2 colleagues to the airport. Check in took some time at KLIA due to the mad morning rush for many destinations. The business class line was really long, so I decided to line up in the first class line ļ Took me around 10 mins before it was my turn. An Indian gentlemen next to me was complaining about why he was not seated with his family on a flight to Chennai. Oh well, for those losers who has not learnt, always pre request your seat numbers before you fly.

We decided to head to the satellite terminal to do some duty free and my colleagues parted their ways with us as they could not get a ticket for the CAN flight, therefore they had to fly via HKG before making their way by road to CAN. They should arrive maybe 3 hours after we reach CAN although they will depart earlier. I actually preferred to follow them as the flight to HKG is by the upgraded B772 whereas my flight to CAN is still by the really worn out A333. To make things worse, my colleagues managed to get on 9M MRD which is the Freedom of Space logojet!

Oh well, at least I am in business class while they were on Y heheheh mean of me, I know, hey, but that¡¦s the perk of me being the boss :P

My colleague took a pic of 9M MRO just to annoy me, here it is


Golden Lounge in KUL

Managed to snap this picture as we were leaving the lounge, Air India B738 in its new cs


In Flight

Another extremely cheerful crew on this flight, but the J cabin was filled with middle eastern people who were also going to the Canton Fair. And boy they were so noisy, I could hardly sleep the entire flight! Thank god for my Bose earphones to the rescue again. Somehow my wife still could sleep most of the way with all that noise, truly amazing! They really need ptv¡¦s on the A333, as I repeated many times, they are really due for an upgrade.

Flying over Putrajaya


Lunch!




Although the J cabin was 100% full, the crew still did an amazing job and service was not even flawed, although its slightly below the normal levels I am used to. In all my travels, MH has hardly let me down on its service standard. We arrived into CAN slightly earlier than scheduled and soon my friends chauffeur met us at the waiting area and we were off to the hotel.

On approach to CAN

The next 4 days were spent in Guangzhou and it was actually more of a working holiday. Here are some pictures of the hotel which I stayed in, The Landmark Hotel, which is highly recommended and also scenes from Guangzhou itself.






Map of the old colonial town


After the trip, we decided to take a 3 day break in Hong Kong and we decided to try the train which was a bargain. The first class was only around USD$20

The train was delayed by 40mins so I still managed to walk around the train terminal and snap a nice pic of it


Legroom and seats on the train, very comfortable actually especially for someone my size




Another nice thing about my trip to Hong Kong was, since I have been to Hong Kong like 30+ times during my lifetime, its basically like a 3rd home for me, therefore I hardly take pictures, but since I started posting my TR¡¦s on A.Net, I decided to take some nice views and scenes of Hong Kong which turned out great! I also managed to find the distributor for Dragon Aircraft models and I did go overboard with my purchase. Bought like 30 1:400 models. Even managed to get an SQ A380. Right now my model collection stands at around 60+ and sits proudly on my shelf in my office. I will definitely take a pic of it one day and post it on A.NET!

Please enjoy the nice pictures I took of Hong Kong








I also managed to take a ride on the nostalgic Star Ferry as to my knowledge it will be shut down soon. But great news for those of you who has no chance in the near future to take a ride in it, even when its shut down, they will still use 2 boats to run tourist sightseeing trips of the harbor.

21 April 2007

Hong Kong (HKG) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL)
Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH73 B777-200
Rego: 9M MRO
ETD:1445
ATD:1445
ETA:1820
ATA:1830
Flight Time: 3.35 hrs
Cruise: 38,000 ft
Seat: 3K Business Class

Pre Flight
Somehow time flies really quick when you are in Hong Kong. Always sad to leave Hong Kong, but like they always say, all good things must come to an end. As Hong Kong airport is really nice, we decided to arrive pretty early and do some shopping. Check in was brisk and was handled by a really gorgeous agent, and very friendly plus efficient too! After check in we decided to have some dim sum at Maxims where I managed to get a view of airside at the airport





As MH uses the QF lounge in HKG, we decided not to go there as you know, there nothing much anyway in QF lounges. One of the best lounges in HKG after CX and SQ is actually TG. So off spotting I went while the others went shopping. I did join them after awhile!







9M MRO


In Flight
After last minute shopping, we boarded the plane with 20 minutes to spare. I settle in my seats and finally I get my AVOD and new seats! Really a huge change in comparison to the A330¡¦s. Looks like its going to be another excellent cabin crew by the way I was greeted and attended too.

Freedom of space indeed!




Some more nice tarmac shots whilst we were taxiing to the runway









Just after lift off


Food again!














Can¡¦t live without AVOD






Nothing like watching the sun go down from an aircraft


This flight was great and effortless. I also noticed that although MH and TG uses similar seats in J and F, Mh has more space and their ptv¡¦s are in the armrest versus Tg which are behind the front seat¡¦s cocoon. This was truly one of the best flights I have had so far on MH, to bad its only a quick 3 hour flight.

Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Jakarta (CGK)
Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH 727 B737-400
Rego: 9M MMM (nice registration huh!)
ETD:2020
ATD:2010
ETA:2140
ATA:2119
Flight time: 2.0hrs
Cruise: 35,000 feet
Seat 2F Business Class
Pre Flight
After landing from HKG, I walked my mum to G gates for her flight to SIN. As I still got time to spare we decided to kill our time back in the satellite terminal before we went back to H gates for our CGK flight.

In Flight
We were all pretty tired when we got onto the aircraft and it was a really light load, so great for us! Another cheerful crew on board. I decided not to take any pics of the seats as I have already done plenty CGK and KUL runs, so I won¡¦t bore you anymore with this. I was so deadbeat by then I even forgot to take note of the menu, but I still remembered to take a pic of the food!



Another nice and normal flight by MH and after arrival I hoped the customs did not question me about the ton of aircraft models I bought and thank god they didn¡¦t, actually they seemed really lazy! Met up with my chauffeur and off to home sweet home it is. Hope you guys enjoyed this TR, I am going to Marrackech in Morocco on the 5th of May via Paris and flying with TG and AF in F and J respectively, so do look out for it.

Good day Mr. Kwee,

Now after much thorough read.

Must have skipped taking a bath!  tongue

Captain soon came on the PA announcing that something happened during the cargo loading and engineers were checking on the aircraft.

What really happened? Did the conveyor vehicle hit the aircraft? Or the big metal box was not properly alligned thus it hit the side of its entrance into the aircraft? Must be a pretty rare case as the Captain went to the ground to check it himself.

Quoting ThaiA345 (Thread starter):
Lunch !!

It's still the old menu cover since as early as January 2005! Thank god the menu was not the same.

Quoting ThaiA345 (Thread starter):
We stayed at my favorite hotel in KL which was the Westin in Bukit Bintang.

Nice hotel, very striking exterior with modern moods. But, if I can suggest, from my experience, the best 'standard' hotel room in Kuala Lumpur would be at the Hilton. Larger room, larger bed, better interior, 2 flat 40 inch TV and a rain shower (very sexy), among others. It is attached to KL Sentral too, so going to KLIA is just a 30 minutes train ride. HOWEVER, there's one thing in this world called airline/hotel loyalty program, I guess you'll only stay at Starwood hotels for the miles/points, am I right?  tongue

Air India B738 in its new cs

Isn't that Air India Express? Air India's LCC unit. But very nice livery, they got beautiful different tails, like Frontier.

Oh my god! The Heliconia! That was the aircraft which leads me to A.Net.

Flying over Putrajaya

Nice view. The bottom most building, which is currently under construction is assigned to my company. It will be known as the Kiblat Walk Mosque. The building opposite the white domed (a la Taj Mahal) Palace of Justice building was also built by my company. It is called the Putrajaya Auditorium. We have quite a number of construction works currently ongoing in Putrajaya.

I think the salted nuts (kacang masin) should be served in a small bowl. The plastic container makes the food's presentation looks 'cheap'. Don't you think so?

You know Mr. Kwee, that registration number reminds me of the word 'Yummmmmy'!

It is an excellent hotel. I stayed there on one of my trips to KL and even wrote a report with photos attached to it, don't know if you remember?

Wow, all in all a wonderful report as usual. I am curious, you mean to say from the time you asked me the location of the shop in Plaza Semanggi till now, you have bought ALL THOSE MODELS? I take my hats off to you... I am not worthy...  Smile

The captain really never said, he said there was an 'incident' but my feeling was more like when the cargo pallet has been loaded into the cargo bay, when they were sliding it towards the back, i think it was something really heavy or they were too rough, so like velocity and physics ..you know....sudden gush of weight and speed = jolt of a/c backwards

Great report.

I've actually spent time in that Westin in KL; it's cool. We had a 2 bedroom suite in the residence section, which was actually very inexpensive (less than 2 single rooms at the time, and loads of space!)

You just have to love MH's service, that's for sure!

And I was in HKG just a couple of days before your flight. Of course, I spent my time in the F section of the Pier  Smile

It is actually great, and I am pretty big and I still can sleep comfortably in these. The only drawback about most of the new lie-flat seats are that, they do not have enough cushioning in them !! ANd thats my general experience over several airlines

Hong Kong is a great airport, really one of the airports which I do not mind going really early! Plus from the pier you also get great tarmac action.

Good report & photo's, many thanks for posting the report.

Food looks good, especially on the 772 flight.

The 333's cabins really do need an overhaul from the looks of it, they look pretty poor.

... now with "new" GCC seats w/o PTV. making its debut soon, the 8 inch AVOD Portable Media Player (PMP) aka eVU Mobile Entertainment Device to be offered onboard MAS A333... if iam not mistaken they also add 2 more seats in that zone.

For EY, they removed the main screen and replaced it with drop down LCD monitor... more or less for every 4 rows. 4 more seats in zone C and removed the main screen divider and doghouse. Slimmer EY seats compared to the older ones.

GCC In flight services onboard MAS A333 to be upgraded to RNSD (Revised New Service Delivery) sytle aka MAS B772 and B744 inflight services... as more and more A333 crew rostered for A333 RNSD Classes. New dining ware etc... phasing out old dining ware etc. All these are temp solution until the arrival of "brand new" "replacement" aircraft... first A333 RNSD flight... september.

more and more MAS A333 to be retrofitted into this new confi.

===
Other than that, our hardworking and very sporting AIC ex-KUL might dress EY seats with new headrest cover... white/light grey as opposed to the current one... blue. i think it looks great as it brighten up the cabin interior. MQO is the only MAS B737 with dark brown interior carpet.

KUL A380 gates and boarding lounges are completed and partially operational (2nd floor still close). Installion of the Muhibbah Airlines Support Industries Sdn Bhd Ipoh Mali Aerobridge last month... it can be stretch up to 30m long




MAS New Hangar in KUL taken shape...


apron for the hangar made of PQC and can withstand very huge load from big planes.

Runway 2 upgrade completed.


Above pic, none grooved runway... now... grooved already to reduce the potential for hydroplaning. it comply to the ANNEX 14 requirement for the new large aircraft. Runway 2 completed, runway 1 next.

Not to question you, but do you have a source for this? Everything I've found on the web seems to indicate that Star Ferry is still in operation and will remain so. Especially since they just built a new pier in Central to replace the older, third-generation pier as part of waterfront development.

The news regarding the star ferry was actually first mentoned on BBC and Channel News Asia early this year. However, a lot of people were protesting to this and thus they put the idea to stop the Star Ferry on hold ( I think its more of changing the ferries to new built ones, but a lot of people were to nostalgic about the current one)
