A record breaking event for the B777 in 1997
Qatar, Japan Airlines amomg suitors for Malaysia Airlines
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; ...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
Probably, which might benefit the national carrier in the long run, especially in the event of too many unwanted upgradesJump to post
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.Jump to post
I don't think that such an important, rich and excellent airline should be part of an alliance with lower members such as AA, IB and of course Latam. It is interesting to note that the "good" airlines in OW are all big money-loosers except QF and sometimes JL. Haha I meant that they are g...Jump to post
I don't think that such an important, rich and excellent airline should be part of an alliance with lower members such as AA, IB and of course Latam. Of course, they have different circumstances yet AA wants to compare themselves to the likes of QR. I think QR is an excellent airline in terms of pa...Jump to post

QF can easily depend on the airline they sponsored to join Oneworld aka MH (Malaysia Airlines) to operate code shared flights between Australia and India through KUL and of course through UL via SIN and BKK and CX via HKG. I doubt QF have code share agreements between KUL and Indian cities. Slightl...Jump to post
Seems QF is taking out a little insurance policy in case 9W falls over, it's rumoured 9W isn't exactly flush with cash. QF are now offering fares to India via HKG in conjunction with CX and KA. All Indian carriers are suffering at the moment, although 9W has put cost cutting measures in place. With...Jump to post

6E dumps capacity on almost every route, granted they created many new routes, there has to be a moratorium on domestic flights from BOM, DEL and BLR (and may be even MAA, CCU and HYD) due to congestion unless it is to a destination not served previously. This might help Jet and AI who have hubs in...Jump to post
