I (as many may know) was (initially) disappointed with BA for withdrawing its LHR-Kuala Lumpur service last year. It was however a blessing in disguise for me, as after 20 years of flying BA on the route - I gained very few FFPs but just liked them for their efficient, professional service. Since then, I have binned my Silver BA Exec. Club card and quickly gained Silver membership with KLM/Malaysia and Air France (Blue) instead - but best of all - I had come to realise that although BA's service is professional, it lacked the flair and charm of MAS and Air France. So all in all a bit of a double bonus for me - I suddenly enjoy flying again!
Does anyone living in Taiwan, Philippines and also Malaysia feel much like me that after many years of BA loyalty - BA is just deserting its passengers by withdrawing services completely instead of trimming them appropriately in these hard times?
Will BA ever regain its regal status in Asia as a good European carrier as it continues to cut its passenger base in Asia?
