Would that not mean the max allowed is 23kg in reality ?

In some countries, health and safety at works regulations restrict workers to lift over 23kg without assistance.

Meaning the EU and USA have less stringent work health & safety regulations/limiting parameters, than say, us here in Malaysia, China, India ..... ?

Oman Air and Malaysia Airlines have initiated a codeshare partnership, effective July 31.
 
Oman Air passengers travelling to the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur will now be able to take advantage of the codeshare to 13 onward destinations in southeast Asia and Australasia.

From archive, Oman Air started their KUL service on 02/05/2010. After 9 years in KUL, I finally get to fly them yesterday, 27/04/2019, by fate. Due to the nature of the event, I was not prepared nor equipped to write a proper trip report for this flight but I wish to share the experience here for reference.

 

 

Background:

A sudden unfortunate event left me scrambling for an urgent 1 way ticket back to LHR. The plan was to get the cheapest ticket for departure on Saturday 27/04/2019.

 

Booking:

I went to Kayak. The first one suggested by Kayak is not practical (50 hours journey, arriving LHR on Monday 29/04/2019). The second flight suggested by Kayak had a booking issue (I had enough drama to add on another). So I proceed with the third flight suggested by Kayak, which is with Oman Air. At £800 for a one way in Economy, it is not a cheap ticket. Understandably, it is a busy travel period (the first weekend after Easter Monday).

 

Online Check-in:

When using a laptop, it has this weird mobile layout but it gets the job done. Seat selection for both sectors has very limited option but it is free of charge.

 

Baggage drop:

Oman Air occupies Island M at KUL Main Terminal. Baggage drop was easy and the MH staff manning the counter was very pleasant. My checked-in luggage weigh 22 kg. I noticed there is a dedicated counter for Group check-in.

 

Boarding:

I am not sure if Oman Air occupies the same gate at KUL everyday but my flight departed from Gate C3 at the Satellite. Security screening at the gate was very painful and disorganised as only 3 lines are opened for a joined Gate C1 and C3, both of which a widebody flight. Gate C1 was a MH A332 flight to DPS. This is a crucial area that MAHB should be looking into for improvement. Standard boarding procedure was implemented.

 

 

SECTOR 1: KUL-MCT

This sector was operated by an A333 (A4O-DB). The aircraft is 10 years old. Flight time was 7 hours. Economy load factor was nearly 100%.

 

Seat:

The Economy Seat is amazing at 34 inch pitch (per SeatGuru). You can truly feel the extra spaciousness. The seat comes with a legrest. Economy Class is configured in a 2-4-2 seat formation. A sub configuration of 2-3-2 is applied on the last 4 rows in the rear cabin.

 

IFE:

Unfortunately, it is the older generation. Whilst a touch screen system, it is very painful to navigate.

 

Meal:

1 breakfast, 1 light meal service, 1 snack service with many drinks runs in Economy. A menu card is distributed for the breakfast service. Standard 2 options for the breakfast. A surprising 2 options for the light meal (a big muffin or a pastry). The snack service was a mixed maruku crackers. Oman Air is not a dry airline, in case you are wondering. Meals are delicious. I noticed a lot of special meal leftovers too (the vege meals).

 

Amenity Kit:

This is really surprising for Economy. A "Comfort Pack" is provided at the seat. It contains an eye mask, a pair of socks, a toothbrush and a toothpaste. I do however felt that this was a leftover from the outbound flight.

 

Cabin Crew:

Multi-racial crew. Female majority. The team speaks at least 5 languages. Most of the crew are from the Philippines. They are cheerful and fast. The first service started immediately after the first seat belt ping upon take-off. A little anecdote takeaway about the crew: the IFE failed during taxi, so a manual safety demonstration has to be performed. Crew from the back galley scrambling to positions while shouting "What aircraft (type) is this?"

 

Toilet:

There is this gigantic lavatory at the back of the aircraft to service all the Economy passengers sitting in the rear cabin. I do not recall seeing something like it before. Normally an airline would opt for the standard 2 conjoined lavatories.

 

Passenger's Demography:

From what I can see, the majority of passengers on this flight was Chinese travellers on group tours. I am not sure whether they are local or from abroad.

 

Overall impression:

Generous meal service, amazing seat, a menu card for the main breakfast, a legrest, fast service from the cabin crew, *a Comfort Pack. Apart from the IFE which is letting this flight down, the overall Economy product by Oman Air on its aircraft to KUL is good.
