It's cheap but have seen similar fares around - even a few ex-SIN.

Since MH has 'dried-up', try getting a similar fare on UL

Lowest I've seen Ex-SIN for DEL in J is 840SGD.

So this is quite a good find. Thanks.
Especially since DEL is the only Indian station that gets the A330, which are getting re-configured to have flat beds.

Since when has MH "dried-up" on international flights? Domestic flights yes, but travelling earlier this year, no restriction on beverages were implemented

Pretty much all intra-asian flights are now dry. Definitely everything 3 hours and under, but there are reports of longer flights too.

Flew REP-KUL-HKG this past weekend on MH and can confirm the lack of booze on the REP-KUL flight. KUL-HKG had none listed on the menu but on my way back from the lav I did see a cart with alcohol. I just wanted to sleep so didn't ask but it certainly was never offered.

So definitely dry BKK-KUL, KUL-DEL is a possibility but I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised to see further service reductions.

I've flown recently KUL-DEL and it was not dry. Had their usual variety of alcohol.

All flights up to 3 hours are dry. Sometimes even above it. (Block time)

KUL-DEL is 5.5hrs.. way above 3hrs..

But as others said, good chance MH will go "all dry" very soon.

KUL-DPS now dry, unable to fill Business Seats due to 5x tag of Y. MHUPGRADES now being accepted at minimum bid. Food also been cut back and of poor quality in J. The airline staff trying, but receiving stick about cut backs implemented in Jan 2016. New CEO wants to bring service levels up, but unless he can lift current 3 hour alcohol ban the airline will continue to lose more customers to GI. GI also Muslim owned, but know it would be suicidal to implement a alcohol blanket ban that would also jeopardise their 5 star status.

For those wondering, he's referring to Garuda Indonesia (GA).

Interestingly they had a full bar service for DPS-KUL in June 2016 so I enjoyed a Glenlivet 18. I used MH Upgrade at near-minimum bid (US$80).

The food itself was actually quite good:

2 possibilities.
- The plane came in from a Alcohol Available destination and it was not offloaded. (That's how I manage to get drinks on domestic runs occasionally )
- KUL-DPS is on the 3h mark + too many customers complained.
