I was looking at one way fares from SYD to KUL and noticed they were $533 +tax on MH.
However, one way form Syd to HK on MH via KUL is actually CHEAPER - $519 + tax on MH
Why is this? it would be in my favour to buy the trip to Hong Kong (pending no luggage checked in) and only use the trip as far as Kuala Lumpur (ok so its only a saving of $14 but if it were more- e.g. Busines class, or long trip?)
Why does MH have such a weird fare system then?
