“Kamek Nait Belon Firefly” (I got on Firefly Flight in Bahasa Sarawak). Too bad… I did not, I welcomed it only. Those lucky ones from Kuching were given free flight to KL and tour for 3 days! I WANT!!! ;p It took off just now during the press conference. After all the members of digital and print media, guests, and celebrities from West Malaysia landed, not long later those from Kuching took off to KL.
Welcoming the plane in Kuching International Airport, FY602 from KL to Kuching. This is Firefly new Boeing 737-800. There’s 4 flights daily (now only 2, 2 more will be added on 24/1/2011). They promise to provide you with the lowest price but frankly… I couldn’t seem to find any cheap flight since last year till now. Maybe I just don’t have the luck.
Left: Water starting to spray. The first commercial flight arriving at Kuching International Airport to receive the traditional aviation industry welcome, a water spraying guard-of-honour, upon touchdown.
Right: Parking. You get to use the aerobridge, no need to brace the sun or rain.
Left: Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr. George Chan Hong Nam was there to welcome the first flight in.
Right: The stewardesses of Firefly. I didn’t get to go into the plane, too many people, so packed. Don’t think there’s much difference in it. It’s new and with leather seats that’s all. I should just go into the cockpit to have pictures with the pilots LOL(*blek* I just have a thing for pilots, blame my history hahaha…) but I didn’t even manage to squeeze beyond the aircraft door.
Left: The uniforms.
Right: Press conference and Q&A session.
There’ll be cocktail reception tonight, should I go?
