Reply To: Malaysian Airlines new A330 biz class seats

As we reported in Sepember, MAB will begin acquiring its new A350s from 2017 onwards.

The idea is that these aircraft will operate to Europe and, assuming MAB can find a buyer for its six A380s, will replace the superjumbo on the LHR route.

CDG was expected to be dropped but it may now remain on the network seeing as AF has decided to cease flying to KUL.

But a question mark must hang over AMS.

MAB has two A380s surplus to requirements at the present time. They are either parked on the tarmac at KUL or else they have been pressed into service on ad hoc charter flights.

In recent times, one A380 was used to take the Real Madrid team from Spain to Australia while another has been utilised for Hajj flights to Saudi Arabia.
