Seats on the older aircraft's are more comfortable. Being a short flight, doesn't make much difference.

Thanks for the comment.

I always enjoy your "from the archive" collection
The glory days of MH and the 734, the 800s seem to have less character, but that comes with age i guess

Malaysian provides good service at reasonable cost and transit time. Hope they recover from the downturn soon.

Malaysia's 734 always mean alot to me since my first ever flight (the long dead IPH-KUL route) in 2001 was on a MH 734. Miss seeing the MH plane at my hometown airport nowadays.
