Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Main Terminal
First Class Check-in, Area D
I was helped by a friendly agent and within a few minutes, I was handed my boarding pass as well as the Fast Track card.
Cathay Pacific First & Business Class Lounge before so I decided to visit it first.
Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge before going to the First Class Lounge where I had a wonderful meal 😋 About an hour before boarding, I took the aerotrain to the main terminal and visited the Malaysia Airlines Regional Lounge where I stayed until it was time for boarding.

Take off went smoothly at 6:22pm.
Around 6:28pm, drinks order were taken as well my choice of main course. I chose the chicken dish, and a glass of apple juice.
Around 6:48pm, the captain was back on the PA with updated flight information and said that we would be arriving on time. 30 minutes before landing, the headphones and menu cards were collected.
We landed in Bangkok Airport around 7:11pm and reached our gate (E2) four minutes later.
I haven´t flown on Malaysia Airlines in business class lately but the fact that my previous flights with them were all very good flights meant that I was expecting the same on this flight. It actually got better. Partly it was because I was able to get the benefits of being an emerald member of OneWorld like using the first class check-in area and having access to their first class lounge. On this flight, the lady flight attendant was very friendly and professional, the meal I had was very good and even if we departed late from Kuala Lumpur, we were still able to arrive on time in Bangkok. Lastly, the price I paid was unbeatable and overall, it was one of the best short haul flights I´ve had lately 👍
