Reason for Trip:

Had to go back to do the usual health check up and also check out when I can carry out surgery on my right knee ligament which I took out during basketball late last year. As usual my flight will be with Malaysia Airlines and I will forego the Jakarta to Kuala Lumpur sectors as they got so mundane.

Pre Flight

As usual, its another quick overnight stop in KL and meet up old friends for dinner and drinks. We stayed at the Le Meredian at KL Sentral for the convenience of the KLIA express train. But this time, the journey took about 4 minutes longer due to the normal tracks being resurfaced, thus the express train had to use the KLIA transit train tracks. Still we arrived at KLIA with 1.5hrs to spare and as usual, I bought my carton of cigarettes and then just chilled at the Golden Lounge.

In Flight

It was another bread and butter flight by MH with exceptional inflight crew.

My fave part of every flight, the meal



I watched some tv shows on the AVOD during meal time and then slept most of the way till top of descent. Anyhow, as they say, a picture paints a thousand words, so I will get the pictures to do most of the talking for me.

Flight: Malaysia Airlines MH124
Aircraft: B777-200ER
Registration: 9M-MRG

Pre Flight

As I have only got hand baggage with me, I decided to arrive about 1 hour before departure. However, when I arrived at the airport, I got to the counter and realized that the flight has been delayed till 1850. Great! Stuck in a boring airport for an extended period is not my cup of tea. I just browsed at magazines in the newsagent and then just parked my butt in the so called newly renovated Golden Lounge. It still looked the same to me though!
Apologies I did not get to take a pic of the interior as it was packed and I did not want to get stares 

The bright side about the delayed departure was that I managed to snap pics of several aircraft. Air Asia X A333 9M-XAA, NZ B763ER and TG A333 going to Bangkok.

In Flight

Almost all flights were running late today for some strange reason, heard that the airport had some computer problems (nowadays most things even aircraft delays have got to do with computers!) Once on board the nice surroundings of my MH aircraft, noticed that J was 80% full and economy likewise.



New month, new mags


Nice views of Perth after take off

Luckily the seat next to me stayed empty throughout the flight. This flight was also equipped with Aeromobile and I tested it by texting my wife back in Perth, although my Blackberry did not work.

Mealtime



This was also another one of those flight where I could not get a decent sleep. By the time the flight landed in KL, I was worn out, but as usual, another terrific flight with a fabulous MH cabin crew.

Great report!

That last picture coming into PER is so typically Australian, I love it!

Last couple taking off from Perth, also fantastic, especially the one with almost the whole engine in it!

Hey do you know anything about that "Mineralogy" MD-80 parked at PER? Never heard of/seen this before...

Cheers mate!

Thanks again for reading my TR. I actually also do not have an idea where that aircraft came from or who owns it. Actually the interesting part about Perth is that sometimes you do get rare aircraft like this. I bet this aircraft is owned or chartered by one of the mining companies.

Cheers

Herbert

Very interesting TP  Smile

MH's Business Class looks so good, nice and spacious as usual. I wonder why not they aren't members in SkyTeam or oneworld.



Time flies! Enjoy life!

Great trip report. Some beautiful photos of the engine...I could almost hear the distinctive whine of the Trents - top noise  Smile

Hi ThaiA345,

Nice TR. Having travelled this route before twice, I appreciate MH's B772s, great birds they are.
And everytime I walk on, I look jealously at their J product....

Some really nice pics and the food looks fantastic!!

Legroom on MH J is pretty amazing.

Regards,
Pete



Where's the accelerometer on this thing?

TG actually uses the same J seats on their B744, A345/6 and B772/3A's. However, on their new A333 and B772Er, they actually have a newer version of this seat, with much wider shoulder room / width, and much bigger IFE screen.

But MH still rocks on the legroom in J. Got another run with them in August, back home to Perth again.
