When will Malaysian Airlines finally make it to the world stage?
Posted April 04, 2019 18:03:09Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is preparing to make its first overseas flight on its new Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, the first passenger to travel with the new aircraft.
The first flight of MAS, scheduled to arrive in Hong Kong on April 13, 2019, will be the first flight for passengers in more than two decades and the first time it will be possible for a passenger to fly on MAS.
The aircraft has been designed with the same general design and technology as the Boeing 777 but is powered by a new engine.
“It’s going to be very exciting for MAS to fly with this plane,” MAS CEO Johan Vigeland said.
The 777-300ER is the first Boeing 777 ever to fly outside the United States.
The aircraft is based on the 787-9, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner with a new design that was approved for international use in November.
MAS will operate the aircraft on a limited schedule from May 19 to July 4, 2019.
It will also fly to China, the Middle East and Europe from May 20 to August 10, 2019.
“We will be able to fly to places like Qatar, India, Europe and other destinations, but it’s going too soon to say for sure,” Vigeline said.
This will be a new experience for passengers, he said.MAS plans to use the 777-100ER and 777-400ER aircraft for both domestic and international flights.MAS is the second airline to fly a new 777-800ER in a month after Japan’s Next Aviation announced the arrival of its new 777X aircraft on June 1.
MAS has also announced the launch of an all-new 777X and 777X Plus for domestic flights on September 10.
While the 777X is designed to carry more passengers, the new 777 has a smaller cabin and is the most affordable model of the new plane, and it is also the first new plane to be produced in the U.S. Since it’s the first 777X, the airline expects that its customers will want to upgrade their 777s.
With its new aircraft, MAS is also looking to make more frequent international flights, Vigelstein said.
The airline is also planning to launch more domestic flights from Hong Kong to Singapore.
The new 777 will be used to fly the entire 777 family, and passengers will be flying with the 777 on both domestic flights and international trips.
The new aircraft will be capable of carrying up to 7,000 passengers and will include new technologies, including a new “super cabin” designed to improve cabin air pressure, improved safety features, and more capacity for the 777 to take on heavier loads.
Flight data will also be available on the 777.
As part of the program, MAS will provide the 777 with two new Boeing 737 MAX jet engines.
The 777 will have a total fuel capacity of more than 30,000 gallons.
Since it’s new, the 777 will also have new technology in its engine.
It has the same engine as the 777 but with a lower-pressure “super engine” designed for more fuel efficiency.MAS said it expects to begin its flights to Hong Kong and Singapore with its new plane on June 12, 2019 and will have flights to Europe and the Middle West on June 14, 2019.(Editing by Michael Perry)
