We fly between Australia and Malaysia twice a year, and have been using MAS for years now. Honestly though, they've been in a lot of financial trouble for a very long time, and the cost cutting is starting to show. For example, the order of every flight now is basically: -Take off -Serve food immediately -Serve hot drinks whilst the...

We travelled from Denpasar via Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong in April and were very disappointed in the seemingly disinterested ground staff when checking in at Denpasar and then on both sectors the Flight Attendants seemed to be more interested in communicating with each other than in ensuring that their passengers were well taken care of. The meals were average...

I am totally surprised at how dirty the inside of the cabin was! I had to bush the food off the seat from the last person who had sat there! Looking around most of the other seat were in the same condition. The flight was late and my destination my luggage was missing. On the up side the staff at...

First of all the fiasco was my fault to begin with, but from there on it was all MAS. I originally booked economy to Manila via KL. I accidentally booked the wrong connecting flight from KL to Manila (wait 17 hrs in KL) I realized this mistake 2 days prior and called MAS immediately as I had to be in...

Business class seats have limited settings. Although spacious and fully flat bed, table is only accessible with seat in limited upright configuration, which was not at all comfortable (table actually too far and no means to adjust as on other airlines). Also window seat requires climbing over aisle seat passenger, something newer plane configurations on other airlines have corrected. Service...

I've been a loyal supporter and champion of Malaysia Airlines through their difficult times, but I have to sadly say that this short flight from KL to Singapore was, at best, average. It reminded me of the sort of standard I expect from American legacy domestic carriers rather than Malaysia Airlines. There was nothing particularly bad, but also nothing particularly...

I have flown with this airline several times and had a pleasant experience - not this time. The crew looked as if they were desperate to be elsewhere and my smiles to the flight attendant were very much one sided. The food was dire,the seating cramped and the state of the toilets had me crossing my legs until landing! Of...

We have used this airline on many occasions and stayed loyal to them through their troubled times. Loyalty is clearly a word the management fail to understand. We paid £140 to reserve particular seats about seven months before the flight. By pure chance I discovered that our chosen seats had been removed (?!). These things happen but it would have...

I had four flights with Malaysia airlines as part of my last trip and the communication with their passengers is simply poor. With the first flight being delayed a hour, many of the passengers connecting flights were put at jeopardy, as people made enquiries to Perth ground crew, they responded where rude and boarder lining on billigerent. They put over...

We were late on both legs of our journey with MH, for the first time in over 25 years of regular travel my bags didn't make a connection. Not the best way to start a holiday. Then when we arrived back to NZ we were 2 hours late, bad enough for us but I felt really sorry for those passengers...

“Book a seat near the galley. The cabin crew will disappear for 90% of the flight, so make sure you can get hold of them.”
