    Etihad A380 as ETD89D from SYD to AUH will be diverting to CMB at around 2100hrs today. Unconfirmed, but just to keep you guys informed. Not sure of the reason why. If it happens to land, guys at the airport please try to get some pictures of it.

    Landing Time - 4:35 pm UTC
    Take off Time - 6:05 pm UTC

    So the aircraft was on ground for about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

    Really enjoyed your Flight Video + Flight Report. I remember flying on ALJ a couple of times on long-haul flights in the Year 2013. I found ALJ’s economy class seat does have tight leg room. Might be the reason ALJ has 4 extra seats than the ALA to ALD. I felt uncomfortable with the legroom when I was flying on it on the long haul flight. I suspect it’s one of the aircraft going to leave the fleet before 2020.

    Please tell me about the passenger load factor on the flight UL314? I have heard that UL does have plans for 3rd Daily for KUL route.

    Thank You for the positive feedback!

    I have 4 more FR's to be published soon.

    ALJ and ALH are exactly the same, with the additional seats. Load factor was 100% on Y Class on this rotation. Being seated in the aft cabin, I wasn't able to check out J Class.

    As far as i've heard, a few of the -200's are to be phased out however, i'm unsure to which ones UL would be looking to phase out.

    UL are to phase out a couple of A320/A321's this year and in my opinion MRE,MRD and ABL should be taken out

    A friend flew in yesterday on UL365 from CGK operated on ALA, which he claimed was far better than ALJ

    As far as the 3rd rotation, I honestly don't see the feasibility of doing so, with MH,AK and OD having significantly good pax loads. It would be much better if UL look to focus on using a bigger aircraft in the early morning rotation (UL318) instead of its A320's

    ALA,ALH and ALJ can be taken out of the equation.

    This is ALB if i'm not mistaken and yes the seats were a little hard,but quality service made up for it
