Thanks to Christopher Mueller and Peter Bellew. Otherwise we won’t see MAS (MAB) aircrafts flying by today. I saw the long lines of Malaysia Airlines’ Check-In counter at Changi and it was pretty full. I’m sure they will gain profit by next year as more people interested to fly this carrier
MAB’s recovery plan was simple compared to other airlines. Besides cutting cost (Cutting staffs, flights, unecessary costs), They also rely on Aussie/Kiwi traffic to London and Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, and Philippines especially) to East Asia/Europe by offering super cheap prices compared to other airlines. I’m sure many carriers (Hinting at you, Garuda) should look at and set MAB’s recovery plan as an example in order to gain more profit and traffic.
This also shows that Aussie/Kiwi traffic is big enough to support Southeast Asian carriers’ growth. It’s a prospective market until SIA wanted to do SIN-CGK-SYD service
If we look from positive side, thanks to MH370 and MH17. They finally learned their mistakes and they are growing into a better carrier today. I’m sure MAS has a bright future from now
