Malaysia Airlines New Airbus A380 Plane Picture - Sneak Preview

Malaysia Airlines New Airbus A380 Plane Picture - Sneak Preview
Malaysia Airlines New Airbus A380 Plane Picture - Sneak Preview of the air plane going through the 60% building phase. As you can see the body is in its original green and yellow coating and yet to be painted. The tail fin has already been fitted and painted with the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) logo. I was on an invitation to the Airbus Factory in Toulouse, France to witness the building process of the A380-800 plane at the at the Jean-Luc Lagardere station. While here, I also visited the delivery section where another Malaysia Airline Airbus A330 plane was ready for collection. The new Airbus A380 is one of the 6 planes which was ordered back in 2003 and this first unit is to be delivered by early 2012. Speculation on the routes are yet to be confirmed but it is most likely that the A380 will be used for the KL - London route. As for the interior design and seating capacity, tentatively it is set at 508 seats with a surprise for the business and first class seating design.

Firefly To Operate Kuala Lumpur To Sibu Route Effective July 1

SUBANG – Firefly, a fully owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, will gradually take over Kuala Lumpur – Sibu route from Malaysia Airlines, its code share partner, from July 1.
Firefly will continue to offer the same twice daily services as Malaysia Airlines which will withdraw from this route effective August 1.
Firefly’s managing director, Dato’ Eddy Leong, said: “We have an agreement with our code share partner, Malaysia Airlines,  that we would operate this route utilising our B737-800 aircraft and will continue to provide connectivity to other Malaysia Airlines routes and services.
“We also took into account the needs of business and leisure travellers and scheduled our flight timings accordingly. Travellers can purchase flights from Firefly’s website and other distribution channels such as our call centres and ticketing offices in the airports and in the cities. Travel agents also have the option of making purchase through the Global Distribution System listed under MH9000 series.
“We are fully aware of the concerns of travellers and travel agents from Sibu on the unavailability of passenger and baggage through-check for those with onward journey with Malaysia Airlines and vice versa and are working towards addressing this.
“On September 1, our departure control system upgrade which will allow passengers to through-check their baggage on multiple flights to their final destination will be operational. We will be able to offer all our passengers seamless travel with Malaysia Airlines on all departure points and end destinations.
 “Unfortunately, for the interim period until the upgrade is completed, passengers on the Kuala Lumpur - Sibu flight with onward journeys on Malaysia Airlines will have to bear the inconvenience of checking out and recheck-in at the check-in counter.
“The good news is that we offer guaranteed lowest fares. This translates to cost savings when travellers on the Kuala Lumpur – Sibu route choose Firefly.
“Additionally, they can opt for more savings when they purchase our bundled sets of services which include in-flight meals, seat selection and checked baggage allowance.
“Seasonal travellers on Kuala Lumpur – Sibu route will be happy to note that they will continue to enjoy the same benefits they were used to on Malaysia Airlines as we will continue to offer premium facilities such as aerobridges for their comfort and safety.”
