Just a quick update that Malaysian Airlines have released a statement today to say they are dropping the double daily flights from Adelaide and are now only flying 4 days a week
Such a shame as they are a very good airline with great service but in light of events over the last 18 months it is not surprising
They have dropped the following flights
"Adelaide will be trimmed back to four flights a week with the cancellation of MH136 to Kuala Lumpur on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from August 10 and MH139 home to Adelaide on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays from August 9"
If you are affected by the changes I would say jump online or speak to your travel agent to re confirm your alternative as there are going to be more people that need to change than there are seats available so could be a little chaotic
If your layover ends up being more than 8 hours they will be offering a hotel at KL and if it is between 3-6 hours there is talk of them offering lounge passes but this bit is not confirmed as I think it depends on where/how you booked or the type of fare you have
