I had transit time of one and half hours. As the Mumbai flight had arrived at satellite terminal, I checked the departure schedule and waited for the boarding time.

Kuala Lumpur - KUL


Sydney - SYD



Malaysia Airlines provided satisfactory onboard service. Flight was full. I didn't check the entertainment, food portion was small for my liking

Kuala Lumpur airport was easy transit as the flight had docked in the same terminal as the earlier flight. Not much to do at the satellite terminal as the choices are limited

Sydney Airport was busy in the evening, I didn't have to queue for immigration, bag came in reasonable time, Quarantine wasn't an issue as I wasn't carrying any declarable item.

Overall a satisfactory trip.
