Afternoon Raid on Xcalibur

By Nickee

Yesterday was one cool day. Managed to be among the first few to sneak in to Xcalibur after the “London weather simulation”. Weather was looking down and people started leaving after waiting in the pouring rain for so long. Definitely not a great way to kick start us ushering in the A340 Xcalibur.

Guess what? A van was deployed and my friends and me snuck up and into Xcalibur. The van continued to make its round while we had a blast just checking out the new airbus.

The XL seats are simply XXXXL. Truly shocking and its been amazing. Compared to the A320s, this is simply fantastic and a beast. There were various stuff to see and it took a while to run the entire length of the plane. Look how much space there is in between the XL seats!

This is captain Nickee preparing for takeoff. All seatbelts on and remember to smile!

Check out the cool entertainment system. Riki was whispering “Use the force!” hahahaha…

We even packed everyone into the front area for a group photo. Thats me right behind Tony.

What was more amazing was when Tony said after the group pic, lets not let the weather beat us and lets huddle outside for photoshots. That was really crazy as we all had a blast taking pics and playing with water on the tarmac. Nothing is gonna beat us not even the “London weather”!

Xcalibur is simply the next step for us. Go AirAsia X!

    Go Air Asia GO!

    I was there that afternoon, I arrived at LCCT staff parking opposite Pos Malaysia at 1300 (1 pm). But thanks to the open air car park, which is SOOOO FAR away, without proper covered walkway, and the rain, I was unable to get out of my car till about two when it was already my reporting time. Yes, I was going to work, but thought I drop by early to be part of the fun.

    Sadly I didn’t make it… Please get the new terminal plus proper public transport/parking/facilities up and running dear MAB!

    All the best to D7 for their inagural flight…AK & D7 sure had come a long way. When the second A340 comes into D7 fleet…you can aptly name it “ENDEAVOUR”…
    Just a comment though, I think D7 should have painted it 340 with the similar livery as the 330…the 340 tials cone is not contrast enough as it is…hope that D7 would do something about it…just my 5 cent!

    I love working on the A340… I managed to fly on the Xcalibur from Melbourne just before the STN flight… it’s spacious…the carpet is all brand new…smells nice… and i could see the guests sleeping comfortably and they looked really happy by the time we arrived in KUL… haha..I can’t wait to go to work on it again!!!
