Status earned: 5 Tier points
Malaysia Airlines was offering attractive prices, despite a high competition with other low-cost airlines, and so we booked with them to also claim avios.
Four of the flights were going to be operated with B737-800 aircrafts so not much variety here unfortunately.
As you can see the cabin was fit with just 160 seats, a rather comfortable configuration.
We arrived by Taxi to the airport - which is a bit far from the town centre. What is immediately striking is, just like everywhere at Singapore, the presence of greeneries everywhere, and even in the airport with this absolutely stunning waterfall.
Our flight was departing from terminal 2.
Lady at check-in gave us this leaflet to keep our boarding pass safe, a nice gesture becoming a bit rare in Europe.
After going through the passport control, here were my added stamp to my colection!
The terminal is very bright and also famous for being entirely carpeted, a really nice feeling when you walk.
Here was our bird approaching from her previous flight, you would have guessed the origin!
Aircraft: Boeing 737-8H6

I don't remember how boarding happened, I am sure the business and Oneworld executive members were called first.
I remember being VERY surprised as it was one of the rare occasions when I was seeing REAL business class seats eve on a narrow body aircraft!
Even the economy class seats were very generous and comfy, look at that!
Of course they were all reclining.
And another surprise as every seats were equipped with IFE.
There are always a lot of clouds in Singapore and a lot of humidity.
Entering Malaysia airspace
The complimentary service - could have been a bit better in quantity but I don't really mind for such a short flight.
The IFE, with an USB plug so you could see your own pictures
Finally on approach towards Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia Airlines offered a personal copy to take away:
With quite an extensive network even though Malaysia Airlines used to be more present - but never actually managed to pick up since the two fatal accidents on its B777 fleet.
The page of the fleet - quite condensed to a very few types.
And the dossier of the month
We arrived with this view on the satellite terminal, mainly used by any other airlines.
The building is in a cross shape
And our building, the main terminal that is mainly used by Malaysia Airlines.
We just had a short connection but here are a few pictures from the way back of Kuala Lumpur where we stayed over night.
SIN: one of the nicest airports to leave from. Very efficient, lost of services, extremly clean althought just a tiny bit far from the town centre.
Malaysia Airlines: I was pleasantly surprised, the crew were very nice, fully functionning IFE , just the snack could have been a bit better but all in all athey have set the bar higher than in Europe.
KUL: Unfortunately looking at these two airports in the same flight is not nice for KUL as it is slightly more dirty and a bit less efficient.
