Re: Malaysia Mulls Shutting Down or Selling MAS

If Christoph Mueller was never kicked out in the first place, this discussion would never be needed.

Re: Malaysia Mulls Shutting Down or Selling MAS

So the Minister of Finance says the PM's statement is misconstrued, that the airline is not to be sold off or closed down. And the blame for the confusion should go (as always) to the former PM. https://www.thestartv.com/v/guan-eng-pm-never-said-malaysia-airlines-to-be-sold-off Mahathir mentioned t...

Re: Melbourne [MEL] closed due to suspected hijack attempt on MH128

Even if it turns out it was a prank attempt, I hope he goes to jail for disruptive behavior.

Re: MH to place order for 25 widebodies by end of 2017

If by some chance (hey they brought back the 744) they decided to bring back the 772, I'd only hope they'd repaint it into the new livery. Anytime I look at their 772s, I can't help but feel sad and think about the two accidents. All they did was repaint one 744 with a retro livery and never actual...

Re: MH to place order for 25 widebodies by end of 2017

MH had difficulty to fill 772 previously. At current service level, network connection and ticket price, mab is playing second fiddle to me3. Doubt mab could break even on 280 pax aircraft on long haul.
