MH At Heathrow Terminal 3

Tue Jul 11, 2006 11:22 pm

I am travelling on Malaysia Airlines tomorrow (12th) to KUL.

Does MH have set stands which their 744's usualy go to?

I realise that aircraft can move around alot at a major aiport such as LHR, but when ever I've been to LHR some of the aircraft seem to be in the same areas.

For example, QR seems to be mostly at the newer part of T3, as shown at the very top of this pic when I've visited LHR:

Also AI also seems to be in the same area every time I've flown them and visited the terminal!

What gates does the MH aircraft usualy park at?

Thanks in advance!

Rob!  wave

The only airlines in T3 that have regular gates are UA/AA and SK, but even those will not be assigned to the same specific flights each day.

The rest can and do park anywhere there is space, and this all depends on numerous factors that change from day to day.

Surprised to see 2 BA 744's at T3 as per the photo above.

I have flown on MH twice to KLIA and have gone from different stands each time, even though it was the last night flight from Heathrow.

I think the first time was from where the BA 747 is parked and the other time was right at the end where AI 747 is parked.

I would recomend MH, brilliant service on every flight

As far as I know, no special gate for MH at Heathrow eventhough they have at least 2 daily flights to LHR.

Have a safe journey Rob.  airplane  Any problem in KL, just let me know.
