"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."

Don't forget the Maximum Landing Weight (KTM Apt Elev 4395').
The tankering fuel is limited.
"Speculation". No more than two hours.
