What Alan is saying is that because Malaysian gained an even worse reputation over MH370 and MH17, and passengers stayed away in droves. The A380 was supposed to give MH capacity and a good prestige aircraft that would be able to drive passenger traffic through Kuala Lumpur, and after the two aircraft incidents, this didn't happen and the jets are costing MH a fortune.

That said, MH is deploying the A380 between Sydney and KL for the summer, as well as the LHR route (where it will remain throughout).
