Due to the incompetence and deliberate lies by MAS staff in BKK and the Transit Desk in KLIA, we (7 of us) lost a complete day of our April holiday in Japan. Overbooked flights, changed flight times that we were never informed of and surly and incompetent check-in, transit and baggage staff combined to make it a 24 hour test...

Tickets were very good value, er you also get what you pay for. On the positive side I can recommend seat 74A or 74K - bags of legroom, er that's about it. Having flown on a number of occasions with MAS approx 4/5/6 years ago, nothing has improved since then. Food was poor, planes (despite not being that old) were...

Having had an ok flight out of Auckland a week earlier, we were certainly disappointed with our return flight home to NZ. Firstly, our 4 year old child was allocated into a seat next to a stranger in a bank of two seats with the rest of us seated in the middle four seats....needless to say we swapped our seats...

I have been flying with malaysia airlines for years and have never had an issue with them. The staff are great, the lounge is good and the food is always tasty, especially the satays. Only down side is that I always seem to get delayed when I fly with Malaysian.

Malaysia Airlines wrongfully registered me as a no show after they redirected my route because of huge delays going from Norway to Phuket a month ago. Showing up for my return flight at the airport yesterday they say there is no ticket and turn their backs to me denying me any sort of help. I phone them up, and because...

We recently travelled from Perth Western Australia to Kuala Lumpur. We have traveled on Malaysia Airlines many times and although it perhaps doesn't rank amongst the top airlines it is definitely reasonably adequate. However, this time, as far as I am concerned they have stepped over the line and some sort of pissy complaints forum, to get this off my...

They offered a good range of snacks, beverages (both Hard & Soft), Dinner on flight. The on-flight entertainment had good collection of movies. Though the headphones were not of great quality as the external flight...

A short hop from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur and once again, Malaysia Airlines did not disappoint. Even on this brief journey, the staff were attentive and the service was excellent.
