  1. actually on MH if you really want the whole can, order the Diet Coke or Tomato Juice
  2. well as least this brings it in line with the KUL/KCH - SIN no alcohol served policy ... even when these flights operated as "First" (till sometime 2010?) and Economy cabin. (any idea why the typical business seats were sold as "First" ?)
  3. Thank you Sofian for these exclusive shots !! For anyone worrying about the "color" of the lights, it's actually the shutter speed of the camera capturing the different phases/flicker rates (same on MH's B772). In actual experience it'll be a uniform color Or the system could be in test mode personally while I'm thrilled at the exterior (but not as much as Hibiscus) , as a frequent flier on the LHR-KUL route .... not so with the non-upgraded interior. Actually rather worried I'll be on the aircraft for 13 hours with cabin products from the last decade !!
  4. I haven't tried, but on my KUL-TPE flight, not only was the b738 filthy, my seat was also missing the audio jack the flight was completely packed since downgrade from B772 so the crew couldn't just move me to another seat. as I'm the sort that carries my own earphone + aircraft adapter, I requested for one of those MH comment cards to give my feedback hoping that it would be taken seriously. I specifically mentioned the poor state of the cabin/fittings/toilet etc. the comment card had a specific clause saying I would be contacted in 2 weeks. I passed the sealed card back to the crew who promised to have it sent. It's been 5 months now and haven't heard a thing. Sent them a picture of the hole in the armrest togther with the comment card to MH's email as a reminder a month after ... same silence
  5. thanks ! I'm looking specifically at MH 1 for early June. Called CS but was told redemption quota already fulfilled and waiting list was also full. Called a 2nd time a week later and was now told that the "system" was not showing any redemption upgrades, and waiting list is not yet open (or may not be open). Since this agent seemed friendlier, I asked to look at redemption upgrades around my date and was told these were avaible. According to the agent, my specific flight still had 57 empty in Business Class. Any idea if there is a way to see which is actually true (redemption seats already taken up or redemption no yet started) ? But most importantly, also a way to spend my points to receive the upgrade
  6. I would say free WiFi or making TM WiFi available at all Malaysia based airports would be a fantastic 1st step. KLIA toilets are good enough as it is.
  7. How does one know which C/Y/Z/ etc class is being booked via MH ? clicking around on the booking engine no longer shows any info ... mainly interested in KUL-LHR fares which are upgradeble via miles
  8. With how creative (or daring/brash/gung-ho) AirAsia is; whats stopping them from introducing a new concept to the "long haul - low cost" industry ? Spent 6 years in UK/Europe and have always been impressed with their Sleeper Trains. Applying this concept, I think getting a bunk or just a place to lie down would be awesome for a long haul flight. Add in an on-board lounge for those who want to dine/drink ... with the right ticket price (nothing higher than FSC economy) I would gladly switch to such an offering !
  9. Closing SIN lounge ? Is there an alternative OneWorld lounge in Changi T2 ? EDIT : sorry just read the MH Travel Advisory. So guests will be able to use the Premier Lounge in Changi T2. Is the lounge closure for renovation or is "Service Improvement" just a nice way to say axed ?
  10. can't they swap to cheaper food options ? "steak" on domestic business ? they could save on the (expensive) meat by making it into a casserole paired with mash. why not excel at something , over providing a "so-so" solution. the purpose of J class meal is not to get full ... its to feel special ! I think MH has missed this crucial point if they are planing to roll out this "solution" to their problems.
  11. but why do they need to buy when they can start their own ? Each state already has its own private operators ie: Sabah Air & Hornbill Airways so licensing wouldn't be the issue ... unlike FAX. looking forward to someone introducing amphibious aircraft and airship routes !
  12. Did my check-in for a flight today, and concur that things have improved (at least I was able to check in !) and nice feature to select a "mobile ticket" at the same time.
  13. https://icheck.sita.aero/iCheckWebMH/Home Trying to check in online for my early flight tomorrow ... and being taken to a new page where nothing works
  14. Hm, yes. Made another call to AA and the agent told me the only flight they could upgrade was LHR-JFK (AA metal) and it had to be AA miles. Just confused with the wording on OneWorld website : Members of each oneworld alliance airline are able to earn and redeem miles with their airline partners – so when you're ready to redeem your miles or points for a travel award, oneworld brings you more options than ever. So are my options closed for a redemption upgrade ?
  15. Just to update this, can redeem Enrich miles by calling American Airlines. They have 2 sectors avaible on my trip, KUL-LHR (35,000 miles) and JFK - LHR (25,000 miles) and some kind of ticket change fee of USD300. Good offer or better places to spend my points ?
  16. Booked KUL - (LHR) - JFK - (LHR) - KUL via american airlines website (@ around USD1000). Fare code outbound is V, inbound is L. Wondering if there is a method to upgrade to Business ? Hopefully cost efficient KUL - LHR - KUL portion is operated by MH, but unfortunately was told by Enrich that I can't use my miles as booking wasn't via MH.
  17. flew with them KCH - KUL today. hot meal served for the 1st time in a long while ! choices where : 1. Chicken with rice 2. Roti prata with fish curry Dessert was a piece of sponge cake. Coke & Spirte still from those 1.5 litre bottles though.
  18. This sounds like a great opportunity to begin a career with the NewCo ? "StartUp" but has its own Act of Parliament, Petronas style ?
  19. Can anyone enlighten me on the benifit of redeeming a higher booking catergory (ie: J or C vs D for Busniess) ? In my experince enrich redemptions don't qualify for enrich miles ... even if its cash+miles.
  20. Hi guys, just re-posting if there's any advice regarding visiting on trade days ? Website lists Trade Day tickets at RM50... and RM40 extra is a small price to pay if there's more to see + less crowd. But worried if there's any stringent checks ?
  21. 2200 UTC = 1400 +0800GMT ? (2pm Malaysia) How would this affect scheduled flights ? Since I'm hoping to fly in during am and leave on the last flight back to KUL.
  22. See-ing trade tickets are RM50, while Public Day's RM10 ... quite tempted to go for Trade Ticket and hopefully avoid the crowd on the last 2 days ? Can anyone advise if there are any additional checks on Trade Tickets ? Don't mind wearing a tie if it helps
  23. Logo looks the same, probably more of a marketing campaign than "relaunch" ?
