From management. The reason J* 330s were taken away from SGN and indeed KUL was the aircraft were needed to take over the Q slots left behind by the red rat exiting NRT in Japan. The reasoning Q made a lot of money 10 years ago out of Japan and did not want to lose the slots. May be very hard if not impssible to get back in the future. J* had spare capacity with 320s to hub from Darwin. A descision a lot of staff find hard to swallow since SGN was so popular with consistent big loads. Q management pull most of the J* strings in case you had noy guessed.
