MH611 Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Singapore Changi
Malaysia Airlines, Boeing 737-800, Seat 7F, Economy Class
185 miles flown, 0TP Earned, 0 Avios Earned (Tickets not in qualifying fares).
I headed down the jetway, and was welcomed aboard. As usual, I turned right and filed past the four rows of business class seats, and onto economy class.
If you want a full tour of the seat, head to my previous review of Malaysia Airlines – suffice to say the same product as I had before – with a seat back screen, power at seat and IFE.
Things that British Airways can’t be bothered to install in their birds.
Boarding was completed swiftly, with push-back occurring in good time. And at that point, the safety video played.
As our plane pushed back, I checked the safety card. Because – you’ll never know when you’ll need it
With that, our plane pushed back and begun a grand tour of KLIA
Soon, our 737-800 lined up on the taxiway as we waited for other traffic to take off.
After a short wait, our plane turned to the runway, and MH611 barrelled down the runway.
The cabin curtains were drawn, and soon it was time for service to commence.
Service began with an initial offering of Peanuts and Orange Juice.
I asked for water too (which was happily offered… and a second packet of peanuts).
Hey – never argue over free snacks (they made a nice snack between Stockholm and Heathrow…).
Meanwhile, I looked out at the views below as I nibbled on nuts.
Whilst the seat pitch was passable for me… for those using larger laptops, it was more… challenging.
Meanwhile outside, nature and the outside world was unfurling its wonders
The plane begun manoeuvring as it passed Singapore, before turning back for the island nation
Soon the plane lined up for Singapore Changi. The cabin was cleared down and prepared for landing.
With a bump, MH611 landed at Singapore Changi Airport – ending this one hour flight. Not that I was shooting with the phone and the DSLR at all..
MH611 taxied around, passing different planes on the way as it hunted for a gate at Changi.
Eventually, MH611 found a gate and parked up.
Unlike the previous segment, everyone remained seated until the seatbelt sign was extinguished. Which was nice to see.
I thanked the crew and headed off the plane, and back to the welcoming carpeted jetways of Singapore Changi.
Overall: Again, a well delivered and executed short haul service. Whilst one could say “You don’t need a snack and drink on a sub one hour flight”, the fact the airline can still offer this, whilst maintaining friendliness as well as offering a superior in-flight product, I’ll keep an eye on Malaysia Airlines in the future if my travels call for me to go towards destinations in Malaysia… and beyond.
