Diversion

@ Anilv,

Yes the diversion is normal.

Every regulator under the sun who puts an aspiring new airline through the 'proving runs' throws in a diversion; it's all part of the play.

It has nothing to do with a real operational diversion usually.

Are they hiring Expats in addition to local Malaysians? What % are ex MAS?

Also, any idea on total fleet orders - I have heard of only 10 737-900ERs so far but I assume many more...

Maybe thousands of unemployed CPL holders, but certainly not captains. If Malindo wants to expand they are going to have to get them from somewhere other than Malaysia.

haha ..true..true.. depends who wins the election. Never enough crew.. especially when the B787 comes to Malindo... Locals will fly B787 and expats b737..

Besides not many MAS coming over... because the T&C will be much lower than MAS... no worldwide travel, no transport to/from work for pilots. lower pay etc etc...

Why would a MAS Captain leave and come over to Malindo? Pay is better other places, and even the 737 guys stuck on the narrowbodies have a better deal then Malindo. Is it a leave of absence like SQ offered their FOs to go fly at Scoot? Or were they promised the moon, soon wide-bodies, a chance to go after Air Asia. I am very curious to know where they got their Capts from.

personally i don't think malindo will hire any foreign pilot in anytime soon. There is number of the capt still under training with lion and will report duty once the 3rd a/c arrive. And there is a lot ab-nitio pilot waiting in line for training.

There are plenty of ex Firefly B738 capt who were rejected by MAS when Firefly's jet ops was canceled by Fat Dandy. There are a few also from Air Asia/Maswings as well as MAS who would like to jump ship and start a new life in a new company. After all Malindo's financial package is almost identical to Air Asia, which is certainly better than MAS narrow body capt.

SZB Congestion (Foreseen)

SZB is witnessing a steady growth of air traffic movement over the past few years. The movement into/out of SZB for 2012 was 74,000+ with a further growth expected for 2013. Additional operators (remember...there's a new kid in town called Malindo who will be frequenting SZB soon for maintenance etc etc) are in the cards to add to the already congested airspace of 40nm within SZB & KLIA. SZB has no SIDs or STARs except for assigned radar headings. We also have to take care of our brothers and sisters who are learning how to fly a plane (the piston engined guys). ATC foresees unexpected delays in the 2nd quarter of 2013 onwards at SZB. With the south west monsoon moving in, the prefered RWY at KLIA will be R14 which means SZB traffic can expect delays or slot departures. Plan your schedule. ATC is in the midst of drawing SIDs and STARs for SZB. With the new routes you will experience more fuel to be burnt for the SZB guys. Remember, KLIA is the priority airfield, SZB is secondary for ATC.

Thanks for the heads up Vello, good to hear from you, i guess thats why even with a tailwind averaging 5 - 8 kts we are still landing on 32. When do you think we will start using rwy 14.

RWY14

Probably next month or wind becomes constant 10kts or more for 32.
Yesterday we used 14 bcos of r33 calibration at SZB.
