Airline reviews

Pros: "The whole business class experience"

Cons: "Business class boarding could have been more organized. Was sent to the gate too early from lounge"

Pros: "Our luggage missed the connection but the situation was well handled"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "Felt more like a domestic flight than an international"

Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."

Pros: "Everything on the plane was fine, and the service was great."
Cons: "Not being delayed on the first leg and missing my connecting flight to Denpasar would have been great."

Cons: "The KUL to DPS leg was on one of the oldest planes I’ve flown. A 737 with no seat back screens. They handed out 2 inch thick “tablets” in Business class, with no touch screen and only a handful of 10 year old movies."

Pros: "Economy seats arent different from other airlines. Flight was good in general"
Cons: "Transfer desk was hard to find for first timers. Send "ask me" staffs to greet on arrival for connecting passengers or info board will help."

Pros: "This flight nothign"
Cons: "Major delay, should have offered passengers water or beverages. Food was very poor, no assistance for transfer on late flight."

Pros: "Amazing plane, latest technology, great customer service, clean bathrooms at all time. It was an excellent experience The seats were so comfortable as well, and the customer service on and off the plane was amazing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Changed gates 3 times . No one knew what was going on. Late flight. Request for wheel chair not fulfilled. Very tight transfer. Very far to another gate when transiting from kL to Yangon. Ridiculously far. My first n last time with Malaysia airlines."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no head phones supplied and the food was burnt."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. . The food bland but warm. But the seats were microscopic"
Cons: "Seats were tiny. My knees pressed to seat in front of me. I’m 73 inches tall"

Cons: "The crew at the check in counter were generally helpful and courteous, however the staff on the flight we're often short or generally rude; thus continuing the airlines reputation for poor service. The food wasn't great either, but we knew to expect this and brought food purchased from Sydney airport (which was a saving grace)!"

Cons: "The Business class seats are very uncomfortable. There's just no leg room space when the seats are flat and its very suffocating."

Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Nice crew and comfy seat."
Cons: "Table tray was dirty and there was old coffee spilled along the side."

Pros: "The boarding is a bit mess up as it was delayed by Malindo Air which share the same gate, I wonder Malaysia Airport authorities has run out of resources why cramp 2 airlines in same gate departing 30 minutes apart, crew is OK seats is comfortable but landing is quite uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding and landing"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour. We had problem getting the attention of the crew as all of them were just hanging around the galley."

Cons: "The queue to board the plane was very long due to the fact that there was only one person doing the check-in. It will make things more pleasant if they have two people instead of one person."

Cons: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"

Pros: "Peanuts"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Why did the entertainment get shut off more than 30 minutes before landing?"

Pros: "The flight surprisingly arrived ahead of schedule :)"
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: "Free beer and wine. Good inflight entertainment. Food ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and not enough leg room for someone 6'02". They ran out of the chicken meal and I was stuck with the fish which wasn't that great."

Pros: "It was a very good flight ."

Pros: "Good food for airplane although I was in the back of the plane and they ran out of what I preferred to have. Lots of free drink options."
Cons: "Small seating area, hard to sleep on a 13 hour flight"

Pros: "The crews are friendly."
Cons: "Foods was not good for my standard. Below average."

Pros: "On time departure system works"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Two hour in late and still waiting for boarding. Awful experience..."

Cons: "Sorry to say the flight is always late. From Osaka to KL I had to wait 4 hours to connect to the next flight to Jakarta. Than on the way back from Jakarta to KL the flight was late again I just nearly made it for my connnecting flight to Osaka. Overall it was ok but something must be done for delayed flights."

Pros: "Flight was smooth. Cabin crew was courteous. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "More thought should be given to the snack offering as it was heavily sugar laden. Flight was delayed by almost an hour to accommodate 1 family."

Cons: "Flight canceled last minute! Lost my connection back home. Still no news about pay back. Had to book another flight on my own expense."

Pros: "First experience with Malaysian. Really good. On time both boarding and take off. Food to my liking, perhaps spicy to others. Crew were polite and did their job well. Over all good and service and experience more than expected."
Cons: "Was looking forward to see and experience new KLIA. Had heard about it, perhaps, 10-15 years back. Not that great, bit crampy. Open seating near gates is current style. Toilets are bad, truly Asian!"

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "Plane seemed new and the seats were comfortable in Business class. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Food was stale cellophane wrapped bread and croissant that I did not eat. There is no alcohol served on any Malaysian flight of less than 3 hours. It was a bus boarding that was delayed by weather supposedly but the Tiger Air flight that was due to depart from the same gate area 35 minutes later actually took off on time before our flight. I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for eight years in the late '80's and early '90's, at which time I thought that Malaysian was the best airline in the sky. Sadly, their present service is US airline quality at best without the general ability of US carriers to keep to schedule which makes them one of the worst in Asia."

Cons: "There could be more leg room available and wifi on the plane"

Pros: "Food was great, easy boarding and overall good experience."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendant that had a friend on the plane and was constantly giving her stuff and talking right over my head."
