Flight Review: 1 Hour Flight to Langkawi with Malaysia Airlines
The first impression matters even if it just a one-hour flight journey from your hometown! As a passenger, we all need excellent service and to be a good passenger itself, so it’s a win-win situation. Let’s see if Malaysia Airlines is up to the par, enough for me to enjoy my short hour work trip flight!
In Kuala Lumpur, we have two airports, KLIA1 was the first one, and KLIA2 is merrier than the other one. I love KLIA2 because if I arrived at the airport early, I can hang around and ate at Family Mart or do a window shopping. If you would like to go back forth from this airport, you can buy KLIA transit pass, if you are diligent enough. Let me know if you disagree or agree with me regarding this in the comment down below!
Services, Amenities & Comfort
To be honest with you, I am still a noob regarding different airlines besides Air Asia. For me to have an opportunity to fly beside them, it’s a dream came true because their flight ticket is out of my budget. So, yay for a bargain and free stuff!
I heard good and bad things about Malaysia Airlines. Some of them are, their leg space is good, their flight fare included with 20kg baggage, which for me is fantastic because there is no hidden charge. By the way, I used the check-in because I bought cookware set for my own home this year, but I need to pay for 10% tax out of my expenditure because I didn’t stay there for a minimum of 24 hours.
The total amount that paid for this flight was RM217.98 (fare – RM167, Tax: RM16 YQ, RM0.98 D8, RM22 MY, RM2 H8, and RM10.02 D8) – 12 January 2019 to 13 January 2019.
Everything went smooth since it’s a local flight! I only need to show my identity card, and it’s a piece of cake. I have been to the local destination by flight a couple of times since it’s my hometown, it’s comfortable for me.
The service was okay, I still remembered that all the flight attendants greet us warmly, but you are on your own once the plane departs. The leg space was okay, not as spacey as I expected, maybe because it’s a local flight.
Entertainment & WiFi
Alright, I know that I cannot compare this flight to Emirates because of the duration of the trips, it will be unfair. So clearly, this flight doesn’t have any WiFi that I can use since, come one, it’s a one hour flight.
Regarding in-flight entertainment, they do have a screen in front of you, as it depends on how you know to use it or not. I didn’t realise at first, so from KL to Langkawi, I just scrolling Instagram on my phone, and knowing that it’s a dumb move, then I switch to just looking at videos on my phone gallery. *sigh*
But, I urged to discover the screen from Langkawi back to Kuala Lumpur. So, I just press on and ask the flight attendants where should I plug my handsfree (they don’t provide one). Dude, it just beside me the whole time, and I said thank you so much to him, and in my head, I said to myself, “Lili, why you don’t have a common sense?.”
Honestly, I don’t remember what movie I watched, but I know that I didn’t get to finished that one movie at all because of the short period flight. But, overall Malaysia Airlines have a wide range of new films, and you can make the screen small and scroll to discover more.
When you received your electronic flight tickets, you will notice this:
The meal will be served on flights where the flying time is more than 60 min, meal service may differ on MASwings and codeshare flights.
Make sure to eat before or after, whatever that suits you. Because I don’t and I regret it because I only had peanuts and orange juice in flight. Don’t misunderstand me, Malaysia Airlines peanuts taste lovely, I even want to bring some home which I did but just hope that at least I could try one of their in-flight dinings to other countries after this.
MH1446 & MH1145, I will remember you even it’s for a short trip because it’s my first time to fly with Malaysia Airlines. But, to be honest, it doesn’t have that much impact as Emirates due to the short duration, but I would want to hop on for a long hour flight. What do you think about Malaysia Airlines? Do you love it? Or it just meh? Share your thoughts on the comment down below!
