I was tracking the Malindo flight from TRZ to KUL last night and was surprised to find it take a northerly route out of TRZ ,almost upto the coastline of Orissa and then go east.

Not sure if it is weather related as all other flights to KUL seemed to take the more direct route. Is it to do with ETOPS?

Unlikely - AK flights on the same day seem to have taken the regular route

Even other OD flights (and the same flight on previous days, seem to have taken the regular route)

Perhaps something to do that that particular aircraft and its ETOPS certification?

The same aircraft (9M-LNH) on the same route on another day seems to take the more direct route
