Both my trips from SG- KL - KIX was pleasant. Crew was all smiles and welcoming. Comfortable full lay bed. I wish they had more movie selection. Both my steak from chef on call was a tad dry yet still tasted good. For the price I wouldn't mind coming back to MAS.

Very good cabin crew and service. The beds were very comfortable and wide.The in flight entertainment was ok but could have had more movie selection on a long trip to Australia. Also the same movies on the return trip three weeks later.

Flight to Borneo from Kuala Lumpur. Got upgraded to Business Class using the MHupgrade facility. Seats very comfortable. Food of a reasonable standard. Be aware that no alcohol is served on flights 3 hours and less. Lounge in Kuala was not very good. Poor selection of food and once again no alcohol.

Good price but pretty average in flight service. Cleanliness was an issue. Food was very poor and wine not drinkable.

Always the best-kept secret. The price is always good. The service is comparable to most big boys. I had smiles and warm greetings every time I run into the service staff along the aisle.
