    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" ?)



    "Festival Mode" - Foto Credit Meor MH



    The first commercial flight is expected on May 16... KUL to LHR (to be confirmed)


    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 :pardon:


    MH4/ 16MAY KUL-LHR is already in the system, to be operated by the 744.


    After that, MH4/ 18MAY, but not for the rest of that week.

    And then, the next fight after that is MH4/25May.


    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 !!

  3. Can somebody point this out to MH like via its FB page? Otherwise, we end up "negotiating with ourselves"


    I haven't tried, but on my KUL-TPE flight, not only was the b738 filthy, my seat was also missing the audio jack :sorry:


    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 :lazy:

  4. After you have selected your flights and clicked "next" on the flights selection page, you'll be directed to the "summary" page. On the "summary" page, click "View Fare Rules". A pop-up window will appear and right next to the city pair (in your case KUL-LHR) you'll see something like "VGVRTFMY". The booking code is almost always the first letter of that fare basis, and in this case it'll be V class.


    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 :pardon:

  5. 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 !

  6. So MH announced the closure of its lounges in PER and SIN. Very much expected and were in the works.


    So, that just leaves MEL and LHR with lounges, apart from PEN, KUL (3), KCH and BKI (2).


    Previously, MH had its own branded lounges in LAX, FRA, JHB, LGK, SYD....anywhere else?


    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 ?

  7. 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.

  8. If they buy MASwings from MAS, they should also buy the surplus B738s from them - I cannot imagine flying KCH-HKG in an ATR or Twotter... ;)


    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 !

  9. I am pretty sure you can't upgrade KUL-LHR on MH using AA miles. You can upgrade LHR-JFK-LHR on AA metal tho. You could either have someone donate you a systemwide upgrade or upgrade using miles + co-pay.


    And I am pretty sure you can't upgrade KUL-LHR-JFK using Enrich miles too (you mentioned in your earlier post) - it's AA code and MH can't change your booking class.


    JFK-LHR is an extremely short flight tho. My flight last month was only 5.45 hours!



    Pretty sure you can't redeem enrich miles by calling American :)


    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 ?

  10. 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 :p


    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.


    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 ?

    remind me of what ANA did with their domestic flights..only provided free drinks, hot meals all b.o.b


    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.
