And of course, prior to every flight, perhaps the new SIAM should play the Singapore national anthem or play a video of how much greatness and growth Singapore went since 1965!
Why stop there? There's soooo much moreeeeee that could be accomplished!

And now, SIA and MAS announce an MoU to deepen their existing partnerships:

https://www.straitstimes.com/singapo...ic-partnership

Quote:
Under the terms of the MOU, the two airline groups will explore a wide-ranging strategic partnership to build on their existing codeshare agreement that covers flights between Singapore and Malaysia. Enhanced ties could include a significant expansion of codeshare flights beyond Singapore-Malaysia routes, as well as enhancements on the frequent flyer programme front. Other potential co-operation could involve cargo as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul services. All these are subject to obtaining the necessary regulatory approvals. A formal agreement is intended to be finalised in the coming months and will also include SIA subsidiaries SilkAir and Scoot, as well as Firefly, the sister airline of MAB.
Are we actually getting closer to this?

It's just a MOU now - and even if it goes through and formalised, it is still only a code-share basis and not even an alliance. MH have code-shares with a few other airlines as well. Doubt SQ will get much out of this but perhaps SQ will benefit with the code-share by putting its internatonal passengers connecting onto various Malaysian cities - other than KUL and PEN. Silkair will be merged into SQ by next year and not treated as its subsidiary anymore.

i'm not going to dwell further into this topic. It's something that offers strong commitment to each other but practically would be loosely attached at best.

I guess MH could end up pulling a QF, shut down all their intercontinental operations and funnel everyone through SIN on SQ codeshares...

(I presume they have the statistics on who flies LCC and then self-connects to SQ in Changi, if not outright SQ all the way)

SIA and MAS propose to expand code-sharing routes, share revenue for Singapore-Malaysia flights:

Looks like this thing is probably going to get a lot bigger...

Think the most impact will be on the SIN-KUL route which will go on a "share revenue" basis - which was back in the early days when SQ and MH have the joint shuttle service. This may not augurs well for travellers on the heavily used SIN-KUL-SIN routing as it will likely meant higher fares forthis sector as there will be no real competition but as co-operation between the 2 airlines. Presently we do see some good promo fares by MH and Silkair from about $130 roundtrip, and this will likely be gine once the shared revenue concept starts. Fortunately we still have some budget airlines plying this route.

Overall the joint cooperation between SQ and MH is ok except for SIN-KUL-SIN where both airlines agreed to joint and split the revenue. This will effectively remove the competition in fares on this sector as bith airlines will share the fares. Altho the government CCCS will surely allow the joint co-operation by saying that there are competiton on this routing But the others are all budget airlines ie Air Asia, Jetstar, Scoot and Malindo. On the FSC airline - its mainly SQ and MH. Therefore technically its not the same as saying that there are good competition as they should not then equate budget with full service airlines.
