Malaysia Airlines customer review

Flew SYD to MLE via KL. SYD-KL was in A330-300 then 737-800 to Male. Airbus had very comfy seats good food and service and very good individual inflight entertainment. 737 had typically uncomfortable seats fairly good food but had a few small flat screens for all to watch. Terrible movie featured. Downloaded some movies on the IPhone for the return trip so I didn't have to endure that again. Price was good though. Had a 15 hour layover in KL the way there and 2.5hrs the way back. Was really happy with the 15 hours visit to KL and had a fantastic time shopping and sightseeing there. Got a beautiful hotel room for $100 US which gave us two 2-hour sleeps to refresh us. Service good on all legs. Very hard to sleep through the night in Economy seats. Would happily fly MAS again but would likely prioritise AirAsia as you can get a Flatbed in Premium class for the same fare as Economy in MAS and most other full-service airlines.

BNE-KUL-LHR on 18/9/2013. BNE to KUL on an A320. KUL to LHR on A380. Flights were on time or earlier. Crew on both flights were excellent. We have flown this route frequently with MAS and have found their service and comfort good. Food was excellent on both flights. Lounge at KUL is getting a bit tired in the area of the showers but does the job.

Flew Adelaide to London and back again in Aug/Sep 2013 business class. The A330 from Adelaide to KL has to be the most uncomfortable seating experience I have ever had and as far as converting into a bed and getting any sleep that is quite impossible. The A380 KL to London is comfortable but Malaysia Airlines has chosen the most basic of fit outs and this shows (I flew Emirates recently on the A380 in business class so can make a direct comparison). As always staff polite and helpful and food good but the planes let the airline down badly. Will not be using them again.

SYD-KUL-LHR return. Malaysia aren't that bad - they are just not as good as the competition. The A380 leg between KL and Heathrow is ok if not as good as rivals but the Business class seats on offer between KL and Australia are extremely poor. The Service is friendly and efficient but every flight I have taken with them has ether had problems with lavatories broken seats (other passengers) or problems of one sort or another. Also on a two hour delay with connecting flights to London there was no info provided about if the connecting flight was being held or not. Now that Qantas had upgraded it's offerings Malaysian is definitely the poor cousin if flying between Australia and Europe.

LHR-PEN via KUL and return. A380 is a super quiet plane. Sat on upper deck at the rear of the plane. On the way out the crew were excellent. On return not quite as outstanding. The food and beverages were ok although lacking on return trip. Seat fairly comfortable. Brilliant to be able to watch the take off and landing from camera positioned on tail of the aircraft. Over all quite comfortable with adequate leg room. I would fly MAS again. It was nice to see the mood lighting enjoyed by Business class passengers gradually getting brighter but in economy they whacked up the bright white lighting which was not very pleasant. I can't understand why this feature is not available throughout the cabins especially on such a new aircraft.

KUL-HKG A380 - Overall flight was satisfactory for this regional sector although might loose out in the long hauls. Positives - food from KUL was of good quality and cabin crew were very friendly. Drawbacks - sleeping position is not 100% flat and most would only be able to sleep on their backs without moving about the table is way too small for its class and the serving tray during meals can barely fit the dishes on it the handset for the inflight entertainment system is a little hard to use and the screens in this cabin are non-touch.

LHR-KUL-HKG in Business Class. Two wonderful flights with great customer service. The business class seats in the A380 (LHR-KUL) are spacious and comfortable. MH offers a nice variety of meal selections. The food was tasty. The second flight was on an B737-800. I was in first row. The seats are comfortable and the food was also tasty. The crew on this flight was fantastic.

KUL-CDG on A380. The aircraft is nice and entertainment system was sufficient for the long flight. But the crews were terrible. Poor services throughout the flight not attentive to the needs of passengers and when requesting anything seemed reluctant to provide anything. No smiles from the crew. Definitely not a 5 star airlines with this kind of poor service.

Our family flew from Australia to Malaysia and took several short hops up and down to Singapore on MAS before flying back to Australia. The cabin crew invariably made us feel welcome with our young children and were extremely helpful all along the way. Mostly new B 737-800s and A 330-300s with decent inflight entertainment options too. But the standard of catering on the long haul sector has dropped dramatically over the years. On the outbound overnight flight we were offered a disappointing mushroom or chicken roll for supper and the same dish appeared as "breakfast" on the flight back. There may be some savings to be had in cutting back catering but I think MAS has gone too far when compared to the competition.

Finished 5 domestic sectors with MAS over the last two months (KUL-SDK-KUL SBW-KUL-SBW-KUL) on old B734 and new B738 MAS is certainly not a 5-star airline anymore. Having flown with so many other airlines in the past their services were not better than most of them. The male cabin crew were mostly rude and unhelpful. Was this what you should expect from an airline who once claimed to have 'World Best Cabin Crew'. They are an OK airline but definitely not a 5-star airline.
