The Descent of MAB

What People are Saying
In this Malaysia Airlines review, the airlines is getting high praise from their customers. One recent review of a happy customer titled her review with “happy with our choice of airline”. The reviewer said “Overall Malaysian Airlines offers very good value in business class. As we were KLM passengers on this flight operated by Malaysia Airlines, we were able to use the KLM lounge at Amsterdam. It was pleasant with a wide selection of food and drink, but very crowded. We had a stopover in Kuala Lumpur, and the airport check-in for our second leg was very smooth (as KLM passengers we couldn’t check in for the MH flight online). The Malaysia Airlines lounge at Kuala Lumpur was fine, but the food selection was distributed all over the lounge so it was hard to know what was being offered. On both flights the business class seat didn’t recline flat, and on the Boeing 777 the inflight entertainment system was quite clunky. Kuala Lumpur really shines in its inflight service and the delicious food it offers. In both Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne our luggage appeared in good time. We were happy with our choice of airline.” he gave the airlines a rating of 8/10 according to Airlinequality.com
