This is probably an ad-hoc flight. MAS does have them sometimes. Interestingly the return sector makes a stop in Jakarta.

The scheduled MH 133 leaves KUL at 0955 daily and it is operated by a 777-200.

MH 6207 - 6208 is a freighter flight. They use Air Atlanta Icelandic 747-200F aircraft on these flights.

Scissor Eagle is right - all MAS flights in the 6000-series are freighters. Code-shares are in the 9000-range and Charters (including seasonal holiday flights) are in the 7000-series.

and 5000 series are for delivery flights (not too sure) but at least this is what i think since the 2 A332s were flown with flight # : MAS540x

I think it's a freighter flight. On January 18th my company hired one ad-hoc
to fly 100 tons of goods to Melbourne from Kuala Lumpur. It was an all-white Air Atlanta 747F and operated as MH6205. I went along to the ramp to watch it load and all. I flew later that evening regular commercial to Melbourne to pick up the stuff on that end. I was offered a seat on the freighter but wanted to collect FF miles instead  Sad should've flown on the freighter instead. ah regrets...in any case the bill came out to an eye-popping 195 grand US Dollars.
