The Amazing Race 3 visited KUL twice. The first time was when the contestants flew in from Geneva to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and the other was when all of them flew from Singapore to Ho Chi Minh City via KUL.
It’s pretty smart for Ian and Teri to fly from Geneva to KUL via Vienna, since Austrian Airlines offer one of the earliest arrivals from Europe, where as the rest of them went via Paris-CDG. But in the end, it doesn’t really make a big difference since all of them were on the same train to Singapore! But I was pretty surprised that Zurich flights are fully booked for that day and Paris was still available.
The shot where they show MAS touching down at KUL, I doubt that was actually KUL since I can see some majestic mountains in the background. I don’t think there are any mountain ranges near KUL! And when they flew in from Singapore to KUL, I did not realize that it was actually an American MD-80 until someone mentioned it in this forum! Also, you could see MAS’ new fabric colors for their B737 when Ian and Teri took the MH 602 from Singapore to KUL. And I don't think MAS use their A330s for their flight to SGN often.
But the 10th and 11th episode did a great job by showing KUL to the world though! Plus, I didn’t even know they have sleeper seats available to passengers at KUL. I think that’s a great idea especially for passengers having a long transit at KUL.
