Last month, Malaysia Airlines signed long-term lease agreements with Air Lease Corporation (ALC) for 4 new A350-900s with options for 2 additional jets of the same type as well as 2 A330-900neo aircraft.
The A350s are slated to arrive between the 4Q/2017 and 2Q/2018.
An airline official -speaking on condition of anonymity- said the Malaysian national carrier has struggled to attract sufficient loads for the double-decker quadjet.
The A380s were used on Malaysia Airlines' flagship European routes to London Heathrow as well as Paris CDG though the latter has since been replaced with a B777-200(ER).Based on the article “Malaysia Airlines mulls A380 fleet options post-A350 arrival” published in ch-aviation
