Comment on WAU! MAS reinstated “UNPROFITABLE” Dubai route! by Petronius

Posted: 22 Jul 2013 12:42 AM PDT

Can MAS compete against Emirates on the KL-Dubai-KL route?

I doubt it.

If you analyse the traffic loads, there are more flights between Dubai and Singapore than there are between Dubai and KL?

It’s a matter of flight frequencies and international connectivities.

On the “Kangaroo route”, why would passengers choose to transit via KLIA when they can do so via Changi or Dubai?

And for passengers from the UK or Europe heading for Asian destinations, there are plenty of direct flights from London or other European cities or from Dubai which is the main Emirates hub. Emirates can also fly passengers from Dubai and other Middle East and African cities to Singapore where they can connect to onward flights to destinations in Asia and Australia.

So, what exactly is the “game changer” that MAS has in reinstating the KL-Dubai route?

And KL is not exactly a “must visit” destination for passengers from the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, is it? Unlike, say, Bangkok, Hong Kong or Singapore.

I think that this will be just another expensive miscalculation by MAS.

It should just accept the fact that airlines like Emirates and SIA have passed it and left it in the dust, no thanks to multiple crises and bail outs.

A Skytrax ranking of 14, anyone?

Comment on Meeting with Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur by weechookeong

Thank you for your comments on Danau Kota Uptown.

I have tried my very best to relocate the Danau Kota Uptown pasar malam due to the complaints from most, if not all, of the residents of the area. A petition has been sent to the then Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur, Yg Bhg Tabn Sri Ahmad Fuad bin Ismail. I have also brought the matter up in Parliament. DBKL and the then Minister of WP, YB Senator Raja Nong Chik have kindly agreed to have the said pasar malam relocated to another area away from residential area. While waiting for the relocation, DBKL has kindly agreed to reduce its operation from 7 days to 5 days weekly (i.e. Monday and Tuesday is closed for business). It was a temporarily relief for the residents.

When I was the MP, I have had several meeting with DBKL to discuss about the new location for the pasar malam. The new place has been found. It is near to the JPJ (behind the Petronas station). DBKL was supposed to work out the logistic for the relocation.

I hope that the new Wangsa Maju MP will take this matter up with DBKL to relocate the said pasar malam, which is causing social problems for the residents of the area.

Thank you and have a nice day.

With kindest regards
