Malaysia Airlines From BKI To KUD With 734

Mon May 03, 2004 9:26 pm

I noticed, that MH has loaded following flight in the CRS.

BKI-KUD MH3006 0855-0935 on day 3 operated with a 734

I have bee to KUD two years ago while flying SDK-KUD-BKI in a MAS DHT. If I remember correctly the runway way veeery short and I doubt that the apron would be able to handle a 734. Is this an error or has there been an expansion of the airfield? When I flew there, the DHT was occupied with two pax on the SDK-KUD (including me) and on the KUD-BKI I was the only pax.

Let us hope it is a typo error or something, unless it's only a fly past they've scheduled it for ! Furthermore, 40 minutes to KUD on a B734 - must involve some serious holding pattern somewhere !
On a more serious note, how absolutely reliable is the info presented on airlines' websites anyway, MH's in particular ? Always been a doubt at the back of my mind on this.

Tbc, I don't know if it is published on the MAS website. It is in the CRS such as Amadeus etc.

I'm sure it has to be an error done my scheduling.

Speaking of MAS Rural Air Service, Mulu National Park in Sarawak is now also served with F50 in addition to DHT services. You can fly non-stop from KCH, BKI and MYY with F50. I'm just wondering if the airfield was upgraded in any way for this change. Cheers.

Didn't MAS use F50 into Mulu earlier? I think they did. How long is the rwy in Mulu and Kudat?

Mulu F50 flights are a relatively new service (not quite sure since when). Before this the only gateway to Mulu is from Miri on DHT.
