Wanted to ask some questions before booking 3 back to back BKK-KUL-TPE back to back as I have time constraints.. BKK/TPE both have airside transits without needing me to clear immigration right? And is the Aerotrain at KUL open 24/7? As the flights land at the main terminal with a long transit a KUL I rather spend my transit at the nicer KL lounge in the satellite terminal...

Thanks!

In KUL, I would expect the train shuttle between main & satellite terminals to run 24/7. Technically the MH Satellite lounge is open 24/7 and there should be many post midnight departures to Europe, plus a few arrivals in the wee hours of the morning, eg EK from MEL arrives ~ 4am.

Actually it is the departure from MEL that is in the wee hours of the morning - EK409 arrives in KUL at 8:25 under the current schedule

Thanks guys, I've changed TPE to HKG. If I OLCI, and print off all my boarding passes, it should be able to go from the arrival area back to airside at HKG correct? in the case of BKK as I've never been, can anyone give me pointers? This is what my MR will look like...

Changed it to HKG instead of TPE

So now my flights are

Code:
9/2  SIN-KUL DEP 6:40AM  ARR 7:40AM
9/2  KUL-BKK DEP 9:10AM  ARR 10:15AM
9/2  BKK-KUL DEP 11:05AM ARR 2:15PM
9/2  KUL-HKG DEP 4:00PM  ARR 7:35PM
9/2  HKG-KUL DEP 8:40PM  ARR 12:30AM
10/2 KUL-BKK DEP 9:10AM  ARR 10:15AM
10/2 BKK-KUL DEP 11:05AM ARR 2:15PM
10/2 KUL-HKG DEP 4:00PM  ARR 7:35PM
10/2 HKG-KUL DEP 8:40PM  ARR 12:30AM
11/2 KUL-BKK DEP 9:10AM  ARR 10:15AM
11/2 BKK-KUL DEP 11:05AM ARR 2:15PM
11/2 KUL-HKG DEP 4:00PM  ARR 7:35PM

Oops my bad, too many Vueves in the MEL EK lounge got me confused lol.
I was thinking of the overnight MH SYD-KUL service, but got my flights mixed up.

Have you factored what you will do if any of these flights are delayed?

Since all the flights have to go via KL, I've selected flights that are using the same plane for the turnaround. So realistically speaking, if my KUL-BKK flight was delayed that would mean that the outbound from BKK-KUL would be delayed as well. Similarly, KUL-HKG/HKG-KUL are in the same situation. The long layover in KL would hopefully prevent me from missing KUL-BKK.

Worse comes to worse maybe I'll get my TI to help out considering that I've consulted with them on the issue of coverage on separate tickets and miss connections so hopefully they'll assist if possible... Fingers crossed though.
