As I travel short distance at most, i felt no longer in need to fly with MH unless it is cheaper compared to AK. MH used to be my first choice, but for the past one year, service wise, it is comparable to AK for flight less than 3 hours. Better flexibility in terms of frequency and at some point food is better on AK compared to MH. These days the option for seat selection is very limited to only less to 5 seats in MH based on my experience if you check in at self service kiosk. To my notice, many seats are indeed available, and I need to request to change my seat over the counter. Too much hassle. Am I the only one? Some more, I really hate those non IFE 738, especially for flight more than 3 hours. I really wish MH can shine again like its glorious years, still hoping though.
