Reason for Trip
Due to the current economic recession and looking at everyone so gloomy, I decided to head back home to Perth for around a week just to relax and recharge my batteries.
This time I decided to take evening A333 flight from KUL to PER. As usual I will not write up on the usual CGK-KUL vv legs.

13 Nov 2008
Jakarta (CGK) – Kuala Lumpur (KUL)
Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH710
Aircraft: A330-300
Registration: 9M-MKS
1st Flight: 22 August 1996
ETD: 1110
ETA: 1410
ATD: 1200
ATA: 1455
Seat: 2A (Gold Club Class / Business Class)
Flight Time: 1hr 40min

MKS taking me to KUL today


And yes, she had the blood shot treatment on her J seat covers! I know A.Net member Ryanair!! Is a fan! ahahahah




B762 of Viva Macau next to us


GA maintenance, with a Nok Air B734 parked up front


Meal Time


13 November 2008
Kuala Lumpur (KUL) – Perth (PER)
Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH127
Aircraft: A330-300
Registration: 9M-MKE
1st Flight: 21 March 1995
ETD: 1830
ETA: 0050
ATD: 1825
ATA: 0045
Seat: 3K (Gold Club Class / Business Class)
Flight Time: 5hr 5min

Pre Flight
After touching down at KLIA we just spent a little time walking around the satellite terminal before parking out butts at the Golden Lounge.

One of the many bars / drinks counter at the MH Golden Lounge

View of the Gold Lounge


Somehow time passed really quick in the lounge and we were also one of the last to board the aircraft.

Good Old MKE taking us to Perth tonight


In Flight
A very light load today of only 17 pax in J and perhaps a 60% load in Y. Don’t know if this evening flight to PER is generating profits for MH.

Sadly, she was also not spared the bloodshot treatment in J






Push back as the rain started falling plus a sunset


Bye bye KL


Whats for dinner?







Portable Media Players were given out, these are mainly carried onboard the A333/A332 on the longer sector flights






Food on this flight was also surprisingly bad. However, all this was made up by the great MH crew as usual.

Service: 9/10
Food: 5/10
Aircraft: 6/10 (Old cradle type seats)

19 November 2008
Perth (PER) – Kuala Lumpur (KUL)
Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH124
Aircraft: B777-200ER
Registration: 9M-MRE
1st Flight: 4 January 1998
ETD: 1730
ETA: 2200
ATD: 1715
ATA: 2140
Seat: 5A (Gold Club Class / Business Class)
Flight Time: 5hr 20min

Pre Flight
The MH lounge is still closed for renovations. It’s a light load today, actually looking at the check in area, it’s a light load for all airlines including SQ and QF. After speaking with the check in staff, even they confirmed that the entire month of November has been pretty quiet. Perhaps the economic crisis is starting to be felt.

A beautiful day in Perth


MRE ready to take me to KL


Managed to see a Jetstar A320 VH-VQH which was a special scheme.



In Flight
50% load in J and similar load factor also in Y. 5A is the last row of J on the B772ER and also the only row in the 2nd J cabin. Another wonderful MH crew as usual.
BE Aerospace lie flats on MH



MH has one of the most generous leg rooms of all airlines on their long haul J seats



There were also 2 GA birds on the tarmac, a B738 and B733 going to Jakarta and Denpasar respectively. One of them, the B738, PK-GEG is a recently acquired ex ATA bird N323TZ


QF A330


Lets see whats for the meal today



Taxi and take off views








We had took off south bound which gave great views of the city, however the only bad part were really strong winds all the way to our cruising altitude of 40,000 ft. Food on this sector was excellent and it was another near perfect flight with MH.







Service 9/10
Food: 9/10
Aircraft: 9/10

We spent the night at the Le Meridien KL before taking our return flight the next day to CGK.

Here are some pics of the hotel room.







Location: 9/10 (If you are basically taking the airport train back and fourth)
Service: 8/10
Room: 8/10 (Being a Starwood Platinum guest, I was luckily upgraded to a suite)

Thanks again for reading guys, and I will post my Japan TR soon which was done during X’mas time. Cheers!!!

Thank God you wrote this report to balance out the bad MH report I wrote a few weeks back. There were some people getting pretty upset about it! hahahaa...

Quoting ThaiA345 (Thread starter):
And yes, she had the blood shot treatment on her J seat covers! I know A.Net member Ryanair!! Is a fan!

Aduh... And you HAD to remind me? It was bad enough on the 737 and now to see it on a widebody is just painful. I would hate to peer into steerage and look at YCL, imagine the crazy colours behind! How are people going to sleep?!

Quoting ThaiA345 (Thread starter):

My eyes... bleeding...  crazy

I think the A332 are properly equipped with built in IFE.

Nice report and pictures as always, thanks  Smile

Those ond J class seats on the 330's look rally bad when compared to the 777 seats + the red colour really does not help, what were they thinking?!

Food looks good, especially on the return flight.

Thanks for sharing.

Regards

Mark

Hi Mark, thanks again for reading. Anyway, you are right, no one that has been on MH's new 'RED' seats liked it. Its really an eyesore and just aggrevates me haahhahaha.....


The A333's were actually supposed to get a refit to the 777's older seats b4 there were retrofitted with lie flats, thoe older J seats from the 777 aren't lie flats, but a cradle type, but based on my past experience, they were comfortable and also had in seat screens.

Nice report ThaiA345!

The bloody read seats on the A330 aren't the most appropriate to put in an airplane. Since red is said to be a color that could cause stress, especially among people who are afraid of flying.

The food on the first sector looked ok, but it looked like your choice was the crispy chicken. To me it didn't look crispy at all, and the rice looked like it was boiled rather than fried, as it said on the menu.

The food on the B777 sector looked superb. For some reason it seems like MH offer a completely different product on the T7, both the meals and seats. I really like the presentation of the T7 meals, they look almost like F class.

I find it very strange that they don't serve the same meals on both aircraft, and they crappy old A330's need some refurnishing.

Regards
Jonas

It doesnt stress me out, but I really hate red as a colour and it just aggrevates my anger! ahhahaha....and the B734 too had this 'red' treatment

The A333 were due to get a refit (ie be fitted with the older cradle seats with in seat tv from the T7 b4 their upgrade) but as it was MH, something happened halfway and the old seats got the 'red' treatment instead!!!
