The KLIA was almost complete when the financial storm broke. It was due to open next month and is currently undergoing tests. Halting it would almost certainly cause problems now - it would still need considerable maintenance even if the project was suspended. Staff have already been purchasing new houses and moving into the surrounding area. The existing airport at Subang (they call it something else) has capacity problems - and at night there have reputedly been problems finding space for aircraft on the ground - presumably after a substantial portion of the MAS fleet comes home to roost. ----------------- Andrew.
