In a month or two it would be interesting to see what the passenger load average is once the newness of it all calms down. Pete :cheers:

The airport parking lot was extremely busy,double decker bus,many mini vans,songthaw,and several cars.No idea what the number of passengers were who disembarked.
Surprised though that an inaugural flight,after leaving KLIA on time was 20 minutes late touching down .It certainly can not be Air Traffic control problems.It hit the tarmac at 11,20,i wonder after all the celebrations in T.O.M's video what time the return flight departed and landed back in KLIA.
Lets hope that this service will become a viable one,and remain longer than the previous ones.

It actually departed KUL 40 minutes late, and subsequently arrived late in HHQ.

Thanks for the video

It actually departed KUL 40 minutes late, and subsequently arrived late in HHQ. It appeared to push back from KLIA2 on time, but for some reason they taxied it out to RW15, it stopped for 10 mins, then they taxied slowly all the way over to RW32R for take off. I believe the delay may have been promotional related.

Will not argue,but KLIA official departures show it left a few minutes before 10.00am,,,,,,,,,,,and arrived 22 minutes late into HHQ.I have a video of it landing taken from the opposite side of the terminal.

FlightRadar24 screenshots of it departing KUL 10:41. They made up time in flight, plus the turn around in HHQ was quiet snappy. They made up even more time on the return leg.

This aircraft then flew KUL to Rayong - it was 46 minutes behind schedule.

I would love to see your videos
