Haha, RM1000 is way too insufficient to support a newborn baby....

The edge of the original Mtg jaya is under MPP which I think makes it west. Metrocity to the east is the North Kuching part. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Oh really?? The boundaries are so weird.... Matang eMart is so close to Metrocity, yet already under different city council?? I think my area (Matang eMart) is under DBKU leh..
Need to check again....

Seriously!!?? These cities have less population than Shenzhen.... If Shenzhen also can't sustain, won't your doubt these routes can do any better?? Of course, i hope these routes will do well too somehow. Kuching really need more direct international flights like these. Hoping for the best, as always.

Flights is not about population, its all about the city itself. Kunming is far more interesting, unique and beautiful than Shenzen.

Administration wise, Palangkaraya is the biggest at around 5000 km2.
Population wise, Banjarmasin, Samarinda and Pontianak can challenge that easily.
Urban-sprawl wise (build up area) yes, I think there is a possibility.
