Hello FrasierForum

Thank you for pointing this out. I guess I shouldn’t automatically have assumed that MAS faced weak demand on its flights between KL, Melbourne and Sydney.

But it just goes to show how things can change in the aviation industry. The marketplace changed between the time the A380s were ordered and the time when they were delivered to MAS.

MAS ordered its A380s in 2003 at a time when Air AsiaX (the long-haul division of Air Asia) was unknown. Air AsiaX itself didn’t fly to Australia until November 2007 and has only served Sydney since 2012.
