The airlines was founded in 1947 as Malayan Airways though after Independence day (August 31, 1957), the name was changed to Malaysian Airways and again changed to Malaysia-Singapore Airlines, though it ceased operations in 1972 and was divided to Malaysian Airline System (MAS) and Singapore Airlines (SA). In the long run the Malaysians chose MAS as their flag carrier because the name itself was changed to Malaysian Airline System with the same abbreviation as MAS. In 1980 till 2005 the name was officially changed to Malaysia Airlines.

Mr. Christopher Mueller is the current Chief Executive Officer of the airlines. The 53-year old German has 25 years of overall experience in aviation.

The service from the staff was good, I have no complaint on that. But the food and beverages was out of my expectation and they need to improve on that. The seat was comfortable. I had a good experience.”

  1. Two wonderful flights with great customer service. The business class seats in the A380 (LHR-KUL) are spacious and comfortable. MH offers a nice variety of meal selections. The food was tasty. The second flight was on an B737-800. I was in first row. The seats are comfortable and the food was also tasty. The crew on this flight was fantastic.
