KTM Berhad Reinstates AFC First Class Coach On Ekspres Rakyat Timuran
KTM Berhad has reinstated the AFC (Air-conditioned First Class) coach on all Ekspres Rakyat Timuran trains from now until 31 December 2021. I have searched on the KTMB Integrated Ticketing System (KITS) for this on Tuesday, 2 November 2021.
This comes after multiple searches on KITS on various days observing that the AFC coach had been removed on all trains from 5 November 2021 onwards.
