Kuala Lumpur - KUL


Sydney - SYD



Malaysia Airlines provided satisfactory service. Flight had a delayed departure. Onboard service was satisfactory. I did not watch any entertainment nor used the supplied headphone. Prefer to rest during flight. Kuala Lumpur airport connection was quick, can get hectic if incoming flight is delayed. Activitywise KL does not have much to offer except shopping and jungle in the satellite terminal. As the aircraft arrived late, evening peak at Sydney had passed. Overall I had a ok trip.
