Cons: "Food need to be improved"

Cons: "All four flights with Malaysia Airlines were delayed, no reasons and no information. Appalling."

Cons: "The selection was rather dated as I travel very frequently I noticed it. Otherwise it would probably be fine for most"

Pros: "First time on Malaysian. At least we didn’t disappear. All was okay except for the meal on the flight to Saigon. I’m not one to complain about airline food but the “meal” served was execrable, possibly the worst in 65 years of flying. And no alcohol on an international flight was niggardly in my estimation.. The flight from Penang to KL they had the cheek to serve a tiny cup of fake orange juice. I will avoid Malaysian in the future."
Cons: "Please see what above."

Cons: "very delayed flight in addition slow flying what should have taken 52 minutes ended 1 hour 20 min to add to that poor cabin crew management of Business Class disembarking excruciating slowly added another delay of 20 minutes!"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "Boarding was easy even though it started late, it was organized. Once I got on the plane I wasn't waiting a long time to get to my seat because they seated the people sitting in the back of the plane first. There is a huge selection of movies, tv shows, and music."
Cons: "They have 2 food options and they're just ok. There wasn't very many drink options either."

Pros: "Crew are nice,but the seat need to improve"
Cons: "The seat need to improve"

Cons: "It will be nice if there’s choice for vegetarian meal"

Cons: "The seats on the 737-800 have quite limited legroom"

Pros: "cabin crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats cramped; not enough space, especially for long haul. Provide more space! Earphones didn’t work. Could not enjoy entertainment. Seat would not recline. Slow checking. Not enough counter staff. Check in counter contractor staff inexperienced and held us up for over an hour due to unfamiliar"

Pros: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"

Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth ride, easy boarding"

Pros: "The boarding process was really fast and efficient."
Cons: "No IFE was provided on this flight, so sad. There was a headset port in my seat but the airline didn't provide the headset so it is useless. Well the only thing that I can do on the plane was just sleeping."

Cons: "I haven't even made it to my destination yet."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable and quiet flight"
Cons: "Dinner service slow"

Pros: "Brand new A350!"
Cons: "Hmm, nothing really. Lucky I was not in a hurry.."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed, no head phones supplied and the food was burnt."

Cons: "Crews were only thinking of completing their tasks. I had been standing for 10 minutes in order to have the crews gave way. They were cleaning post lunch. I was told to wait till they were done."

Pros: "Food was good and staff was always with a smile in their face"
Cons: "Super crowded and not much room in between rows, I aspected a bit larger and more comfortable plane for an international flight"

Cons: "For 50 min flight we waited 45 mins in taxi"

Pros: "The cabin crew and this was the only flight that reflects the correct boarding gate on my boarding pass."

Pros: "Rapid boarding"
Cons: "Food was not very nice"

Pros: "Crew was accommodating enough to provide for us during this cancelled flight."

Cons: "One of our luggage was delayed during transit."

Pros: "Better overall service - boarding, no delays, comfortable cabins, pleasant crew."
Cons: "the windows were a bit smudged from previous passengers"

Cons: "The queue to board the plane was very long due to the fact that there was only one person doing the check-in. It will make things more pleasant if they have two people instead of one person."

Cons: "my bag failed to arrive in bkk till next day and had been broken into at kl airport .bkk said this happens every day at kl never fly malaysia again!."

Pros: "The early arrival, and the service"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hours resulting in us missing our connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur to China and then Los Angeles . Malaysia airlines did not apologize or help us with rebooking our flights or offering hotel accommodation. They just left a family of five with no flight, stuck in Malaysia with no options of getting home. . Flight crew had very hard bumpy landing on both legs of flight and maybe they need to go review landing protocol so that we don't have to have a hard rough landing"

Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Poor quality food especially the breakfast "snack". Unable to take water on board and tiny serves of water and other drinks left us dehydrated. Far too many ads at the start of entertainmen. Repeated for each selection."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"

Pros: "The flight surprisingly arrived ahead of schedule :)"
Cons: "The food, at least it was better than the food out of KUL"

Pros: "This was a comfortable flight with nice staff and great food and entertainment choices"
Cons: "No 12 1/2 hour flight can be ideal but this was good deal."

Pros: "Efficient check in"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was a very good flight ."

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "Everything on time and smooth. Crew was attentive and friendly."

Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."
Cons: "The warm roll was doughy & tasteless & the breakfast choice was not good at all. Would suggest a yoghurt & cereal option for non Asians."

Pros: "On time departure system works"

Pros: "Prompt flight and service was good."

Pros: "Flight was efficient & comfortable. Crew was friendly & helpful."

Pros: "Short trip 50 mins"
