Airbus A330-300

The seat

Malaysia Airlines’ premium product has undergone a significant evolution in recent years, with modern fully-flat seating, plenty of storage nooks and crannies, comprehensive in-flight entertainment, high quality catering and MH’s trademark service style. Malaysia Airlines business class seats have been arranged to optimise the space used in the cabin, with a variety of 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 layouts. That means solo travellers will definitely benefit by being choosy about where they sit, with most positions having aisle access but a few spots requiring you to clamber over your seatmate. travelBulletin was seated in 1A which provided a comfortable spot to work, and when it was time for a snooze it reclined into a fully flat bed. The seats have USB and in-seat power supplies and space for personal effects including a convenient netted nook to keep your mobile phone handy.

Entertainment

In-flight entertainment is viewed on a touch-screen display, which can also be accessed using a handheld controller. Noise-cancelling headsets are provided, with a good selection of blockbuster movies, TV shows and old favourites.

Service and food

MH’s trademark satay sticks were a welcome introduction to the flight, followed by a delightful meal selection. Travellers can also pre-order their main meal from a wider choice of offerings, but this needs to be done through a call centre rather than online. Fine wines, beer and spirits are on offer, while business class passengers receive a comprehensive amenity kit. Prior to the flight passengers also receive priority check-in and baggage service.
