    No hard and fast rule. Sometimes direct on airlines website is cheaper, sometimes travel sites. Just look at all angles. Also Air Asia not always cheaper than MAS by the time you add in luggage and meals.

    Most likely reserve/allocate some seats on a standing order basis.

    Actually flight tickets are a lot more cheaper now with more airlines flying from KL to their home countries.

    I remember in 2007, only MAS flew to Japan. A round trip ticket to Osaka is RM3600. Now, with JAL and ANA, only RM1700 to Tokyo and about RM2000 to Sapporo which is longer distance than Osaka. Also, only MAS flew direct to London and Paris last time, no Air France and British Airways from KL.

    Why purposely do it during MATTA?

    August is still winter, maybe still school.

    Jan, the apps Google Flights monitor airfares for you...I get regular notification KUL-Doha-Berlin-Doha-KUL from at least 4 airlines. Prices range from Rm3K to Rm9K depending on season.
