Malaysia Airline A350 Familiarization Flight - KUL - PEN in Y+

I had a chance to check out the new Malaysia Airlines A350 for a short trip between KUL and PEN.

There is another review here, but I have the added luxury of getting the Y+ seat, as well as recording my trip and editing it into a cohesive-looking (maybe?) video:

My takeaways from the short flight:

- That Y+(?) section is small, but I can certainly see people wanting to pay for it
- I like the fabric used on the seats
- The Android-based IFE is usable. But silly there is no tail-mounted camera.
- Huge windows are huge. My forehead rests on the window itself when I lean on it, rather than the bulkhead on other planes.
- The best thing about the plane: it is very quiet. Similar decibel levels I think to an a380, and just a tad quieter than the 787. I flew with an a320 back and oh man, the sounds in the cabin is so noisy (from the hydraulic pumps and whatnot)

Overall, this is a plane I will want to fly again. Thank you for checking this review out.
