Flying with Malaysian Airlines
As the national carrier, Malaysia Airlines provides a multi award-winning premium service to more than 70 destinations worldwide and runs two daily A380 flights from Zurich to Kuala Lumpur after the aircraft’s successful introduction during summer 2012. The airline offers the perfect gateway to access Malaysia and SE Asia and beyond with short transit stops for Bali, Jakarta, Singapore, Langkawi, Penang, Bangkok, Sydney, Melbourne and Borneo.
Celebrating 40 years of Malaysian Hospitality, the airline joined a select group of airlines to gain a five-star rating from SKYTRAX along with awards for ‘Best Signature Meal’ and ‘World’s Best Cabin Crew’. The airline joined oneworld in February 2013 offering passengers a host of extra benefits such as the ability to earn and redeem mileage awards and tier status points when flying with oneworld member and affiliated airlines along with access to any of the 550 airport lounges worldwide offered by oneworld member airlines.
As you would expect from an award-winning carrier, flying First Class with Malaysia Airlines’ new A380 is an experience to savour. The real pleasure lies, however, with the little touches that are so often overlooked.
Once on board, sit, sleep or stretch out in your 40” wide and comfortable seat with a generous pitch of 89”, which converts into a full flat bed. On a night flight? Settle in for a good night's rest, surrounded by the comforts of a quilted mattress, large pillows and cosy down-filled duvet. Slip into the 100 percent cotton pyjamas provided and worry not about arriving in creased clothes.
In the meantime, dine like royalty with one of the best fine dining meals in the skies. And check-out its Chef-on-Call, a pre-flight order service made exclusively for the airline’s esteemed First and Business Class passengers. Choose from an exquisite range of gourmet cuisine, regularly refreshed to ensure your in-flight dining stays rewarding.
Those who don’t believe in mixing business with pleasure might just change their minds on board Malaysia Airlines Business Class, where exceptional service and five-star amenities meet to make travelling a real treat.
Once on board, the Business Class seats on the new A380 aircraft are designed with generous leg-room with a seat pitch of 74” featuring full flat beds so you can rest and enjoy unparalleled privacy throughout the journey.
Also available on the pre-flight order service via Chef-on-Call, take your pick from a wide selection of palate-pleasing gourmet cuisine, produced from farm-fresh ingredients and created to provide a lofty dining experience, and enjoy a fantastic choice of entertainment options as you fly. Before you know it, you will be making your descent, and you’ll have to wait until the end of your holiday and your return flight to find such impressive service again.
