Fly MAS to HK daily on A380 starting May 1
Saturday April 20, 2013
The Star

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airlines will fly the Kuala Lumpur-Hong Kong route daily with the Airbus A380 effective May 1.

After London and Paris, Hong Kong will be the third destination for the national carrier's new 494-seater superjumbo fleet of aircraft.

The A380 will replace one of the double daily flights for the route currently serviced by the B737-800.

In conjunction with the launch, the airline is offering an attractive economy class fare starting now until May 20, for travel between May 1 and Nov 30.

The price starts from RM380 one-way and RM760 return all-inclusive.

In addition to that, eight first class seats will be available with premium features such as converted full flat bed, which is the widest among other airlines, and individual 23-inch in-flight entertainment screen.

Business class seats will feature individual 17-inch in-flight entertainment screens with power supply and USB ports.

Wow that is a huge increase in capcity for the KUL-HKG-KUL route. Going from two 737-800s daily to one A380 and one 737-800 daily. Hope it works out.

The upgrade has nothing to do with demand. The frame will remain idle in KUL costing MH $$$ so why not send it on their premium route & compete with CX for traffic.

I believe Thai and Malaysia use a similar strategy to use their A380's on short regional routes to HKG between their long-haul roundtrips. Think Korean also might be doing the same thing.

EK also fits in a Jeddah rotation in they're schedule. I think they have two SJ rotations a day now. Better to have the airframe flying than parked on the ground.

A SJ pilot who lives in my building in Dubai told me its cheaper for EK to have the aircraft in the air flying to AKL than having it parked at SYD awiating the return rotation to DXB.

The A330-300 also operate this route. They are just removing the 737 from it.

Anyway the 747 used to fly here so it is not unusual to send large jets to HGK.

When is Airbus going to make a freight version of the A380?

UPS and FedEx ordered 10 A380 freighters each, but they canceled their orders 6-7 years ago.

Airbus postponed it indefinitely = cancelled.

And with the current freight market there's no chance that Airbus is going to relaunch it again anytime soon. Maybe in the future with better engines and significant weight reductions. The original A380F would simply have been to heavy to be competitive in the market, even with a bigger payload and bigger range then a 747-8F. And that's a killer in the current market where carrying freight in the belly of passenger planes becomes more and more the norm.

Had Airbus lanched the A380F, it would have compete with Antonov An-124 or Lockheed C-5 Galaxy (Lockheed did actually considered to launch the Lockheed 500, the civilian derivative of C-5, decades ago).

No, that's not the case. The 2 planes you mention were designed as military heavy lift cargo planes and have very different specifications that the A380F that was designed as a passenger plane converted to a standard civilian freighter.

For starters the A380F would not have a big front or rear cargo door, it would have had 2 loading floors instead of just 1. The A380F would also be too heavy to compete with those 2 planes, just like it's too heavy to compete with other civilian freighters.

In the end of the day the A380F would have simply be too heavy to compete in any airfreight market. UPS and FedEx did not cancel their orders without a reason. It's very striking how they placed big 767F and 777F orders in the same month they cancelled their A380F orders. That pretty much tells the whole story of the A380F.
