Hey Sam,

Was chatting to Cikusang today about flying from Kuala Lumpur to Borneo and he said that while Air Asia was cheaper the standard on Air Malaysia is excellent.

I flew Malaysia Airlines from Ko Samui to KL a few years ago. They were fine, but it was also a pretty small. Nothing like the standards from Singapore Airlines though.

I've flown MAS on five return trips to KL over the past 25 yrs and I concur that they staff are excellent and the LONG journey from the UK always pleasant despite the legroom!

They've even got Nintendo's in all the headrests now so you can play Mario to help you take ur mind off your legs and shorten the journey!

They have won The Best Cabin Staff in the World Award by Skytrax UK for the past 4 years.

I had a great experience with MAS. excelent service. I loves the in flight entertainment and even the food was great. It's the best airline i've ever flown but i havent been on too many.

KL airport is also very nice and very modern

I've flown long (Australia - England) and short distances (within Malaysia) with Malaysian Airlines. I was very happy with them

I flew with them to oz last year. They where very good although was lucky enough to get the emegency exit seats (extra leg room). Kula lumpar airport is very nice. There is a wicked little resturant downstairs.
