Private Company Behind Last Hunt for Missing Malaysia Airlines MH370
The company Ocean Infinity stated its last hunt for a potential spot to hunt for missing plane. The seafront exploration company’s Seabed Constructor vessel will sail to the spot in the southern Indian Ocean where a Chinese patrol ship detected an ultrasonic pulse – which could have been consistent with that from a black box – in 2014.
Analysis of the movements of the Seabed Constructor estimated that it was still monitoring or recovering its submarine detection vessels early on Thursday morning local time.
Ocean Infinity confirmed the company was aware of the reports of the possible black box signal four years ago. It was heading to the area to check it out for themselves “before we head to port and bring this search to a close”.
The Malaysian government at the beginning of the week said its search agreement with Ocean Infinity had ended and would not be extended.
Speaking on Monday, the transport minister, Anthony Loke, said the US-based company had requested an extension to conclude its undersea search for the missing plane.
Ocean Infinity’s arrangement with the Malaysian government was made on a “no-find, no-fee” basis, where the company would receive about US$70 million if it found the aircraft wreckage, and no payment if it found nothing.
After five months of extensive searching, Ocean Infinity admitted defeat on Tuesday and its chief executive, Oliver Plunkett, said it was with “a heavy heart that we end our current search without having achieved that aim”.
However, it appears that in a last-ditch effort, the Seabed Constructor will continue for at least two more days to survey a spot 25 degrees south and 101 degrees east within the original 84,000-sq-mile search zone.
The pulse detected by the Chinese ship had a frequency of 37.5kHz, the same as is emitted by flight recorders, and it was seen as one of the few hopeful moments in the first few weeks of the search for the Boeing 777, which went missing in the early hours of March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
“We remain ever hopeful that we will be able to find the answers we seek and new information will come to light and that at some point in the future the aircraft will be located. We remain steadfast in our unwavering commitments to solving the mystery of MH370.”

Malaysia Airlines reminds consumers about Malaysian hospitality
Malaysia Airlines (MAB) has launched a new video in conjunction with M&C Saatchi Malaysia, as part of its new brand campaign titled “Malaysian Hospitality Begins With Us”.
“[Malaysian hospitality] is not only found on board but in everyone you meet. It’s how we are with one another and everyone else. It’s what makes us all uniquely Malaysian and it will be what you remember most,” the video added. The spot also received 439,940 YouTube views.
MAB unveiled “Malaysian Hospitality Begins With Us” earlier this year in a bid to reinstate and demonstrate that it is the national icon and represents Malaysian hospitality on behalf of the nation to all its guests and customers.
The new campaign will be executed across TV, print, outdoor and social media platforms, and will also be expanded beyond Malaysia. As part of the campaign launch, MAB will also introduce an improved website and mobile application. M&C Saatchi, m/SIX and Society were involved in the campaign.
Group CEO Izham Ismail said its diversity, heritage and culture are the foundation and reference of the airline’s brand promise. It aims to provide a Malaysian experience in travel through Malaysian hospitality, which encompasses all aspects of customer experience reflected through initiatives such as its newly refurbished Peranakan-themed Golden Lounge at Kuala Lumpur International Airport and various digital innovations. This includes the launch of its first in-house Innovation Lab, or iSpace last year, as the airline enters the third phase of its digital transformation, towards becoming the digital airline.

Malaysia Airlines to end Airbus A380 flights in March 2018
Malaysia Airlines is set to end all scheduled Airbus A380 services in early 2018 less than six years after taking delivery of these aircraft. The carrier’s sole remaining scheduled A380 service is between Kuala Lumpur Sepang and London Heathrow, where it presently operates twice daily non-stop flights. Effective 15 January 2018, A380 service will reduce to once daily, with the MH4/5 daily flight being replaced by the newly delivered three-class Airbus A350-900. According to Malaysia Airlines’ reservation system, all scheduled A380 services will cease on 04 March 2018 with the flagship flights MH1/2 also being replaced by the Airbus A350-900.
The airline principally operated the A380 to London Heathrow and Paris Charles de Gaulle (a destination it has since terminated). Delivery of the first aircraft took place in July 2015. The A380s had also been earmarked for flights to Sydney but this never eventuated, apart from a very brief period in 2015 for a total of nine days.
There have been attempts by the Malaysian carrier to sell or lease the A380s to other airlines however nothing has eventuated from that. The carrier’s A380 operations according to many analysts have not been profitable for the airline. Instead Malaysia Airlines sees a future for its A380s in the Hajj and Umrah charter market providing services to pilgrim travelers. A new subsidiary company, presently code-named “Project Hope” will operate these pilgrim flights. Services would operate from ASEAN countries, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Africa to Medina in Saudi Arabia. The A380s will be reconfigured in a high density Economy Class layout with possibly a small Business or Premium cabin. The new company is expected to be operational sometime in 2019.

Malaysia Airlines to lease six ex-Air Berlin A330s
Malaysia Airlines (MH, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) has announced it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with AerCap for the lease of six A330-200s formerly in service with Air Berlin (AB, Berlin Tegel). The carrier said in a statement the aircraft would deliver from February 2018 through to 2023 and would be used to replace six B737-800s that are coming off lease. As previously reported, Malaysia Airlines intends to start using more widebody aircraft on high demand flights to slot constrained markets around Asia including Mumbai Int'l, Delhi Int'l, Denpasar, and Perth Int'l.
The six aircraft will feature 287 seats in a two-class configuration. Of those, nineteen will be fully lie-flat Business Class seats. Malaysia Airlines currently operates six A380-800s, fifteen A330-300s, and forty-eight B737-800s. According to CEO Peter Bellew, under the carrier's Fleet Strategy 2017-2022, the airline will shift focus towards widebody capacity. As such, it will reduce its total narrow-body fleet from the current forty-eight to forty-five by 2022, while at the same time increasing the wide-body fleet to thirty-five from twenty-one aircraft.

Malaysia Airlines will use its new Airbus A350 jets to open a second destination in Europe
Malaysia Airlines will use its new Airbus A350 jets to open a second destination in Europe following next year's launch of A350 flights between Kuala Lumpur and London. However, the Oneworld member has axed plans to send the A350 to Auckland and has ruled out other destinations such as Australia and Tokyo.
“We hope to find something more than nine hours. We haven’t landed on one thing. We are looking at European destinations,” he admitted, adding that the airline is currently in discussion “with some airports.”
Malaysia Airlines previously flew to Paris and Amsterdam until both routes where shuttered in early 2016, and before that to Frankfurt and Istanbul in 2015, leaving London as its only European destination. London is currently served by two daily Airbus A380 flights, but the first of those flights – MH4/MH5 – will be handed over to the Airbus A350s in either February or March 2018, depending on Airbus’ delivery schedule for the new jets. The second London flight – MH1/MH2 – will switch from the superjumbo upon delivery of the next pair of A350s.
In March 2017, it was announced that Malaysia Airlines was looking to lease a widebody aircraft to boost its network from next year and will make a decision on a order of new planes for delivery from 2019 later this year. The national carrier is emerging from a turnaround after twin tragedies since 2014, when flight MH370 disappeared in what remains a mystery, and flight MH17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine. Malaysia Airlines wanted to lease six A330s or 777s for use from 2018 and a further six for 2019 and that the carrier saw a good chance to get some good rates.
In April 2017, Malaysia Airlines announced that its carrier's dedicated Hajj and Umrah charter unit is be up and running by the end of next year. The stand-alone charter unit, currently known as "Project Hope", would operate Malaysia Airlines' unwanted A380-800s. As it stands, the six aircraft are to be refitted in the middle of 2018 with the first available for Umrah flights by around December 2018 and January 2019. Malaysia Airlines has already announced it will use its six A350-900s and two A330-900neo, due to arrive on lease from Air Lease Corporation, to replace the lost A380 capacity. In April 2017, Malaysia Airlines has offered to lease Airbus A330 jets from Alitalia if the struggling Italian airline is wound up. Alitalia is preparing for special administration proceedings after workers rejected its latest rescue plan, making it impossible for the loss-making airline to secure funds to keep its aircraft flying. Workers are hoping the Italian government will step in with an alternative rescue deal. In May 2017, Malaysia Airlinea announced it will add 11 new routes and embark on a hiring spree by year-end to boost demand from international customers.
