MH 783 experience in Y :

pitch - can't tell difference between 333, in fact I found the seat to be more comfortable, adjustable head rest better and clutter free in-seat pocket.

IFE - larger screen, better resolution, more responsive touch screen. Had 5 movies, 60 episodes of Western drama, limited audio CDs. MH Select not uploaded yet. 

 

For me, better experience than 333

At least they resolved somewhat the IFE issue. During the first few flights, you get to stare at blank black screens.

Good for you guys with plenty of options. Took MH80/81 twice over the past 9 months. Thank God I am small built. Will do it again if the price is right.

I was told a lot of the IFE screens are out of order due to the aircraft being over 10 years old.

Not really out of order is mostly the IFE on Air Berlin a332 are using Zodiac/Thales vendor so mab has to redo the OS and interface. Infact the IFE on the A332 are more fluent and smooth than MAB's Panasonic on the 738/a333.

So the 1st scheduled (AKL) is not even in the 6 initial destinations destined for these 332. Interesting to see the full deployment status later on.

Compared to what VA has done to refresh its ex-Air Berlin 332s .... https://thedesignair...t-of-the-fleet/

 

MH's own ex-Air Berlin 332s look pitiful...like hardly any effort and zero cents invested in the interior.

MH budgeted?

They can't even spend money to reconfigure their dugongs which they technically own, what more spending money to reconfigure leased planes?

Love the way VA describes and market their upper class suites as solo freedom suite, solo corner suite and love suite  - wish MAB can be as creative as this too.

For me, the interior is good enough for a medium haul flight.. the important thing they need to make sure the IFE and also wifi working for this aircraft..!!
