Malaysia Airlines Celebrates 1 Year Of The A380

Since adding the superjumbo to its fleet on 2nd July last year, Malaysia’s national carrier has experienced stronger loads and positive UK growth figures with monthly sales figures from January to June 2013 all indicating a strong increase in bookings when compared to the same period in 2012.

Commenting on the anniversary, Yuzrizal Mohd Yousuf, Area Manager UK & Ireland, said “As Malaysia Airlines’ flagship route it was vital that the UK was the first to be served by our latest product. The enhanced comfort, technology and services of the Airbus A380 have been extremely well received by our passengers across all cabins, resulting in a successful first year of operation, which we look forward to improving on throughout 2013 and beyond.”

Since its launch on the flagship London Heathrow to KLIA route, which has been operating since 1974, Malaysia Airlines now flies six Airbus A380 aircraft from KLIA to London, Paris and Hong Kong. With a capacity of 494 seats, Malaysia Airlines’ A380 comprises 350 economy and eight fully-flat first-class seats on the main (lower)deck, and 66 fully-flat business-class and 70 economy seats on the upper deck, providing some of the most spacious cabins in the skies.

The Malaysia Airlines’ configuration offers a number of unique enhancements including the widest seats of any First Class cabin in the sky at 40 inches. Business Class and First Class passengers also enjoy the pre-ordering ‘Chef-on-Call’ service, raising in-flight dining to new levels of excellence, whilst all passengers have access to the latest individual in-flight on-demand entertainment.

Offering new levels of luxury, comfort and convenience for long-haul travel, the world’s largest superjumbo is being adopted by global carriers. Malaysia Airlines became only the second member of oneworld to operate the A380 after Qantas, with oneworld partner British Airways set to add A380s on their Hong Kong and LA routes from October.

Malaysia Airlines is also the only airline to offer a non-stop service between the UK and Malaysia, currently flying 14 times a week between London Heathrow and KLIA, with immediate onward connections to South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand.


As you would expect from an award-winning carrier, flying First Class with Malaysia Airlines’ new A380 is an experience to savour. The real pleasure lies, however, with the little touches that are so often overlooked.

Once on board, sit, sleep or stretch out in your 40” wide and comfortable seat with a generous pitch of 89”, which converts into a full flat bed. On a night flight? Settle in for a good night's rest, surrounded by the comforts of a quilted mattress, large pillows and cosy down-filled duvet. Slip into the 100 percent cotton pyjamas provided and worry not about arriving in creased clothes.

In the meantime, dine like royalty with one of the best fine dining meals in the skies. And check-out its Chef-on-Call, a pre-flight order service made exclusively for the airline’s esteemed First and Business Class passengers. Choose from an exquisite range of gourmet cuisine, regularly refreshed to ensure your in-flight dining stays rewarding.


Those who don’t believe in mixing business with pleasure might just change their minds on board Malaysia Airlines Business Class, where exceptional service and five-star amenities meet to make travelling a real treat.

Once on board, the Business Class seats on the new A380 aircraft are designed with generous leg-room with a seat pitch of 74” featuring full flat beds so you can rest and enjoy unparalleled privacy throughout the journey.

Take your pick from a wide selection of palate-pleasing gourmet cuisine created to provide a lofty dining experience. And check-out its Chef-on-Call, a pre-flight order service made exclusively for the airline’s esteemed First and Business Class passengers. Relax and enjoy a wide range of entertainment options with its large IFE personal screen. Before you know it, you will be making your descent, and you’ll have to wait until the end of your holiday and your return flight to find such impressive service again.


The Economy class seats with an 18-inch seat width and recline of 6 inches, have a seat pitch of 32 inches and individual IFE wide screens measuring 10.6 inches. Enjoy over 100 hours of on demand high quality, highly engaging entertainment onboard, from the latest blockbusters to popular TV shows, to multi-player games and critically acclaimed album releases. Shared laptop charging facilities are also available in Economy Class.
