We've travelled with them a few times and like all Asian airlines they offer a very good service, I would definitely fly with them again.

I've flown with them once - last December - on BLR-KUL-PVG, and I thought they were very good. Here's my review.


Note that Malaysia are very strict with carry on bags. They inspect and weigh them at check in, and they do another sweep at the gate, so make sure you adhere to those rules. The upside of this is that boarding is a breeze, as there is plenty of room in the overhead bins for everyone.

Looking forward to flying on MH's new aircraft soon. They offer excellent value for money and generally very gracious cabin crew (I've had a couple of bad experiences, like all airlines you can catch people on a bad day). Not as flash as Singapore Airlines but definitely fly with MH.

Travelled with them some years ago. They are ok, nothing special when compared to Singapore airlines and soon after we flew with them some regulars flyers with them were remarking they were not as good as they used to be.

I'm definitely not expecting Singapore Airlines etc but as long as they're clean and comfortable, with decent food and happy cabin crew, I guess that's all that matters!

All other opinions though, good or bad, will be appreciated!

I'm a fan .... Like the 34" seat pitch on long haul. Crew usually fab. Decent food. Mostly on-time take-offs. Clean toilets.

I have flown with them lots of times and would continue to do so but unfortunately they stopped flying out of Manchester!

Always had an enjoyable flight with Malaysian. The crew were always very pleasant and the food not too bad.

We did 4 flights with Malaysia Airlines last February and couldn't fault them. Each flight left and arrived on time, FA's were charming and very professional. Food was great and plenty of beveridges (both "hard" and "soft") offered throughout the flights. IFE never missed a beat and gave a wide range of choices. Bathrooms were very clean.

Just a tip ... your cabin baggage will be weighed at check-in so just be sure you are within weight restrictions.

Happy trails. :)
