AirAsia is best known for its scrumptious inflight meals. Available for purchase at an additional price, flyers can purchase the meal of their choice at a reasonable price. In this post, we would like to share one of our favourite meal on AirAsia, Rice with Beef in Black Sauce.
This is the meal, packed. You will need to wait for about 20 minutes for them to prepare this meal.
The packaging looks inviting, isn’t it?
One of our favourite feature is their attempt in keeping their customers informed – nutritionally. Nutritional value for most meals are written on the package. This helps the customers to be aware of their nutrition consumption, especially those who are being mindful of their calorie consumption.
There is nothing else in the meal, just plain white rice and beef in black sauce. If you are not that into vegetables and would like to have just rice and meat, this is definitely a must-try.
KUALA LUMPUR, 20 November 2019: The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia has issued a statement on its Facebook Page barring a scheduled drone flight from taking place. The Chinese-made drone is purported to be the first flying car for Malaysia. The statement is as follows:
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2019 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RESTRICTION ON THE DEMONSTRATION TEST FLIGHT OF UAS E-HANG 216
PUTRAJAYA – The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) would like to announce that the planned test flight of UAS E-Hang 216 (EH216) scheduled for 21st November 2019 has not been authorized by CAAM.
The location of the test flight at the UNIKL MIAT Hangar Subang is less than 200 meters away from commercial airline and helicopter traffic and clearly within the Subang Airport Terminal Control Zone that is under strict supervision by Air Traffic Control.
In addition to this, the EH216 was only issued a Special Flight Permit (SFP) by its State of Design (Civil Aviation Administration of China) which is limited to conduct Research & Development Flights in Grand World Science Park, Guangzhou.
CAAM is also carrying out an investigation into the unauthorized demonstration flight involving an EH216 on 15th November 2019 at the same area within Subang Airport.
As much as CAAM supports the development of the aerospace industry in Malaysia, test and demonstration flights must be carried out in accordance with the Malaysian Civil Aviation Regulation 2016 (MCAR 2016) to ensure safety.
CAAM would also like to state that we are open to consider the request for a test flight of the EH216 at an appropriate location, and with the support of the aircraft’s State of Design.
