Malaysia Airlines customer review

(Australia)

In July 2013 my husband and flew to Sri Lanka from Melbourne for a 3 week holiday. The flight was good from Melbourne to Malaysia short turn around then on to Colombo. The return was hoped to go as smoothly but not to be. I have two issues with the airline both about treatment to passengers. Firstly flying from Colombo to Malaysia we were subjected to extremely loud promotional material about the airline for over 30 minutes. It left us with fingers in our ears and quite annoyed as it was very early morning. Many people were clearly discomforted by it and a request by another passenger to turn it down was ignored. That alone would lead me to not fly again. I made the mistake of ordering a vegetarian meal on the flight over and had the most bland and unimaginative food possible. My husband enjoyed his food but noted it was considerably poorer quality on the flight back to Australia. I will avoid this airline from now on and next flight was booked with Singapore Airlines.

PER-KUL-LHR. After reading the reviews on here I was a bit sceptical about flying but was very pleased. The food was excellent the crew were very efficient and pleasant could not fault any of this. The seat comfort was ok once the optimum position was found. The pillow and duvet were fine considering how much cheaper they are than EK or QR it did not lack in quality in comparison with the ticket price.

We travelled from Hong Kong to Adelaide on 21-22/10/2013 and the leg from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur on the A380 was easily the best flight in 15 years of travelling on Asian airlines that I have encountered. Seating had plenty of leg room (something missing on the A330-300 from Kuala Lumpur to Adelaide) and the cabin service was unbelievably good. The staff actually looked to be enjoying their job. Will certainly be flying Malaysia Airlines again.

SIN-KUL-AKL. I don't think they deserve to be classified as s 5 star airlines I traveled with Thai Airways from Singapore to Auckland and their plane was much newer better food and flight attendants were friendlier. I boarded a very old Boeing 737 from Singapore to KUL with connecting flight from KL to Auckland. The aircraft from Singapore to KL was old with many of the seat arm rests torn off. Some staff were not friendly we were served a dried pastry overcooked and almost inedible and the inflight entertainment took a long time to work after take off. A real disappointment.

LHR-KUL-BNE. Thankfully only one way. Having flown Singapore Airlines Emirates Kingfisher Air Asia Malaysian Airlines were a real disappoint. Most disappointing was the customer service which was badly lacking. Very strict on luggage limits. Poor food service taking a long time after take off to serve no regular checks on passengers for drinks or food and generally unfriendly. Perhaps the cabin crew were having a bad day but given the choice of competitors we won't be flying this airline again.

IST to KUL in business October 2013. Flight delayed 7 hours due to technical problem on the ageing 777-200. We were bussed to a nearby hotel but hotel and especially food provided was of low quality. Once we did take off the plane was showing its age although I found seat pitch generous and slept ok on the angled lie flat seat. No champagne before take off and no satay which they brag so much about. The older all male crew were efficient but not warm or attentive. IFE pretty poor compared to BA Emirates etc. Amenity bag small but adequate. Their A380 may be better but overall the experience fell a long way short of market leaders.

KUL-MEL 6 Oct MH 129. Been travelling Malaysia Airlines regularly over 20 years now have noticed their inflight catering and staff attitude (some of them) is getting worse and rather appalling. They need to start treating all Economy passengers much better. Recent flights got served a snack from / to Australia flights. Dried pastry overcooked and almost inedible lucky to get a second drink if you needed one. Very disappointing. They could take a tip from Air Asia Staff.

KCH-KUL-HKG-YVR. MH2597 (KCH-KUL) overnight in KL then MH072 (KUL-HKG) before transferring to CX 838 (HKG-YVR). The planes used on both MH sectors were pretty new with a 737-800 and A380-800 used on the first and second sector respectively. Both flights left on time and the flights were smooth with no problems encountered. The 737-800 interiors were brand new and comfortable enough for a 90 minute flight. Cabin crew were efficient and friendly. The A380 interiors were showing a bit of wear and tear some of the carpets in the high-traffic areas near the washrooms were a bit worn out. Cabin crew on this flight were also efficient and worked well as a team. A relatively short flight (just under 4 hours) so didn't bother with the entertainment system. Seating on both flights were comfortable enough and the food was hot and tasty but nothing special. Would be nice if they brought pineapple juice back like they used to have about 15 years ago. The orange and apple juice options are getting a bit boring.

9/10/2013. BKK-KUL. On their new B737-800. Love the interior design. Sky-interior and leather seat. Good legroom for 2 hours flight. Staff service was amazing. Full of smile friendly and cheerful. Food not much to say. Just delicious. Inflight entertainment provided on this route. Highly recommended.

MEL-KUL in business. Disappointing flight with very little attention from crew who had the annoying habit of talking to you with their heads turned away. It meant that they had to begrudgingly repeat what they'd said much to the frustration of all. How they won worlds best cabin crew is inconceivable. Angled lie flat seat comfort ok. Drinks haphazard. Pillows a joke - so thin you'd get more support using the blanket. Meals surprising - a feta cheese pie and orange juice for dinner! More in keeping with a budget carrier.
