Re: Malaysia Airlines Announces Codeshare Agreement With British Airways (Finally...)

I think this is a good start for a cooperation between the two oneworld members. Hopefully it expands further into their other routes on both sides. BA used to fly into KUL till 2001 using a B772 and it used to be one of their furthest routes at that time. I believe before that, they flew the B747; ...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - April 2019

The issue with Brunei is that if didn’t enforce sharia law decades ago when the world wasn’t as progressive. It’s implemented a barbaric punishment like this in 2019. I don't agree that's the issue. Getting back to STA's ban, I don't believe their ex AU sales on BI are significant- don't know about...

Re: MH an opportunity for IAG?

Actually, lots of issues at MH began when they were sold off to a certain local Malay businessman who eventually drove it to its downfall. Sadly, prior to that, MH was a very established carrier and was On eof the pioneer in what is now known as alliances such as OW, Star and Skyteam. They formed, t...

Re: QR to withdraw its A346 fleet

KUL was one of the few destinations QR considered when refurbishing this aircraft to a two class configuration including BKK, CMB and FCO. Today, KUL has a mixed variation of Airbus and Boeing aircrafts for their three daily flights. I guess KUL is a very mixed market for them. It is indeed sad to s...

Re: Malaysia Airlines drops first class, rebrands it as Business Suites

Apparently, the F suites were often empty so they decided to put it to good use by rebranding it to Business Suites. The price will not be the same as F but at least it will be affordable and worth it.
