Malaysia Airlines flight between the two cities?
I was doing the daily rounds of Indonesian news and came across a piece on the maiden Malaysia Airlines flight between Kuala Lumpur and Bandung. I thought that AirAsia was already servicing that route and was wondering why there was such a demand for travel between the two destinations that there was a need for Malaysia Airlines to put on a daily flight.
I appreciate that as the economy picks up that more and more people can afford to travel by air. Yet, I had always figured, perhaps incorrectly so, that the majority of passengers from Indonesia to Malaysia were domestic workers and that these individuals predominantly departed through Soekarno-Hatta airport in Jakarta.
Not that it matters one way or the other, but I am interested to know what the demand is for that there is such a need for daily flights.
