Firefly Scare And Safety

Aaron' s flight was supposed to land at 4.30pm in Ipoh....but he sent a message saying that the plane was having some kind of system failure and only allowed to baord the plane at 5.30... So we estimated that he would reached Ipih at 7pm...

Upon reaching airport, we were informed that his plane landed in Subang airport instead of Ipoh... This time it seems that the right engine was having some problem.... What a nightmare for those passengers on board...

We left the airport and went to hospital while waiting for further news from Aaron.  Prayed that all would be well... And at 8.50pm, he boarded the plane again, consoling us that it is another plane and not the one with engine problem...

At around 9.30pm,  we saw the passengers coming out from the immigration... phew....Everyone at the airport had a sign of relief on their faces...

It is the longest flight ever .... Six hours to reach Ipoh from Singapore...

But despite that, I will still take Firefly... It is the only accessible flight to go Singapore from Ipoh...
Ipoh Immigration 

Thank God for the journey mercies...

  4. Good grief!!! Firefly used to ply Sibu-Kl once...and before I got the chance to try, they terminated the service. Now, there is Malindo - I hear delays can last for hours...and they can cancel the flight anytime - when they do not have enough passengers. I'd rather stick to MAS...or Air Asia - 6 flights a day.

  17. I took Firefly once and it flew during the thunderstorms! Goodness, it tossed and rocked like hell. My face turned pale like sheet. The plane is small and scary!

    Thank God that he reached safely to your arms!

  18. I didn't know there are flights from SG to Ipoh. Usually the flight takes how long to reach the destination?

  19. Yes, scary but it is very convenient for ipohians...only that the rates are a bit too high...
