Pros: "- The check in and seating went smoothly. The sign w/ designated boarding seat numbers worked well. - Crew were helpful and professional."

Cons: "I was assured of Bulk head ffom BKk to ZRH . Howrver in Manila they told to ask for Thai Reptentative. The head of Boarding crew told before the flight they would ask for a volunteer to exchange seat. They never did A German speaking Thai Disablef persons are not in Bulkhead. I am partially deaf.all the bulk head sits were given to Thai. The food were unpalatable.The worst I had.No tooth brushes no snacks in between. I will never fly this horrible airlines."

Pros: "The food was the best airline food for the whole trip. The green curry was very nice, though it would have been better with chicken instead of fishball."
Cons: "The boarding was ridiculous. We had to get off the previous flight so far away from the main terminal, and wait on the tarmac for the driver of the van to come. He was late. Luckily, the Passenger Services Agent was reactive enough to check our boarding gate with her handphone and wrote the gate number on our boarding pass. It was a mad rush from where we alighted from the van to the gate which was at the extreme end of the terminal, coupled with stairs up and down, and carrying our hand luggage. Anybody with a weak heart would have collapsed. What more when we are both senior citizens! The time to change plane was incredibly short. That was a torture. One more hour would have been just right."

Cons: "The food, at least it was better than the food out of KUL"
Cons: "When they served satay they didn't ask which I prefer beef satay or chicken one even they asked it to other passengers. After finishing the dinner they took forever to clear a napkin so I couldn't find dinner was finished or not. It was midnight so I wanted to sleep as soon as dinner was finished. When boarding they do security check. It's OK. But why don't they use business class gate even there was the one?"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"

The issue is that if you fly with this company you arrive at KUL. Steward was kind but rough - efficient like a robot... and the headphones are very poor, I could hardly understand what was said when watching the films."
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Pros: "On time departure system works"

Cons: "Check in counter not enough resulting in very very long queue and check in time"
Pros: "Flight was full ...so felt cramped. Towards back of plane so only 1 toilet. The Veg pie was slightly warm and unappetising , took 1 bite and left rest. Steward saw this and gave me extra peanuts instead. The brekkie was awfulll, the supposed scrambled eggs was congealed into the shape of the holder and again lukewarm the grilled tomatoe looked washed out....unappetiising...so ate the squahed croissant , yoghurt and fruit. What happened to international food standards . Crew was nice...though if wanted water later on had to get yourself.They didn't come around much offering water before Brekkie. No game option eg Sudoku on Entertainment site. My bag come off carousel more scratched than with other Airlines, so poor handling. Disembarked by stairs at Sydney Airport near Cargo plane area and had bus to Airport. Never had that before on an International flight , so took much longer to get into terminal....last thing you want after a long flight."
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Nothing special on this flight. Entertainment system didn't actually work at the beginning for everyone on board and had to be rebooted. you would think everything would be thoroughly checked prior to a flight. It started to work about an hour later into the flight."
Pros: "The equipment and level of service on this MAS flight was excellent. Food was delicious. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Though it wasn't part of the flight, the business class lounge at KUL is just a step below the excellent facilities at airports like HKG. Just a step though, mostly in the shower area. Food options were great though. And take advantage of the Massage Spa within the lounge."
Cons: "boarding was awful 1 hour late and no information provided to waiting passengers staff nasty and indifferent and/or uninformed about what was going on"
Cons: "I asked from them about my luggage and they said it wil transfer to my new flight accordingly. I suppose to be Jakarta at 10.30 am and my client is waiting for me at the Jakarta air port. Finally I came at 12 30 pm and my luggage was missed. Air port crew said it will come next flight arrive at 3pm. So I have to wait for next flight and for my client. Finally I came out from the airport at 4.30pm."
