Flying with Malaysia Airlines was always a pleasure for me. My latest flight from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur was a lovely one too. I love the hospitality of the cabin crew who seemed to enjoy entertaining passengers at all times. Seat was comfortable and was able to sleep well during flight. Food served was good and filling. Fruit juices were...

Booked Malaysian Airline from Singapore to Bali because it was cheap. Used to take KLM but stopped when they switched to the 1 piece luggage rule. SQ and Garuda got too expensive and Qatar stopped flying to Bali from Singapore. I had to transit via KL but the layover wasn't too long. There was not meal or drink service from...

Booked via Malaysia Airline website, the website is basic and could use an update to make it more usable. The airline notified me of a flight time change but did not update the flight itinerary. Check in on line was easy and at the airport also, staff friendly. The Business class lounge was also basic but comfortable. The flight and...

New plane, good service in economy and surprisingly good leg room. Seats are comfortable and slide to increase pitch. Movie selection very good for a 7-8 hour flight. Amazingly rapid boarding process in KL and Penang. Very pleasant flight and all slept (family of 6)! Lounge service in KLIA surprisingly poor at front desk. Was told that I could only...

MH staff and crew are world standard. During a technical problem on landing the captain kept us informed and flight staff as well as ground staff were very helpful taking care of us. MH staff deserves full backing by the government as flag carrier!

This airline is cheaper, so you cannot expect much from services. 70 % the crew is like they are having bad day face. not welcoming and the food is very average, So if you want to fly to another country with cheaper budget you can select this, but if you want to get service try another airline. By the way...

Have been a regular traveller for many years and by far the worst experience to date. Started with numerous delays, then gate changes with zero communication. Been back home for two days and still don't have bags and no customer service to help locate. Would never fly again.
