MAB makes changes to London service in November

7 Sep 2015 by Clement Huang

Malaysia Airlines (MAB) will reduce flight operations for its Kuala Lumpur–London Heathrow service during November.

The newly re-branded carrier (see here) normally operates 14 weekly flights to the UK capital, but will axe one of its A380 return services on November 4, 12, 17 and 24.

The move is unsurprising given that November has traditionally been the shoulder season for most travellers – a period between the peak and off-peak travel seasons.

According to, flights MH004 and MH001 will be cancelled on the aforementioned dates, which offer less attractive timings compared to the second daily return service to London on MH002/MH003.

MH004 departs Kuala Lumpur at 1010 and arrives in London Heathrow at 1615, while MH001 departs London at 2135 and touches back down in Kuala Lumpur at 1825 the following day: in both cases, the evening arrival means that most travellers lose a day at their respective destinations. Conversely, MH002 and MH003 offer early morning arrivals and are the more popular choice for travellers.
