I believe the cost of fuel is high in KTM, as a result airlines might choose to tanker fuel for the return leg. If this was the case the planes which returned to KUL would have more than enough to get back.

India is similarly very expensive.. to the extent that when flying KUL-DEL-SHJ we would fill up as much as possible (considering landing weight)... we are talking about almost 30tons here on occasion.
