Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."

Pros: "Entertainment was good."

Cons: "cabin not so clean, no foot rest. But crew good service."
Pros: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was smooth. MAS staff attitude has changed to the better tremendously. Friendly staff, orderly boarding, pilot announcements were clear with good command of English."

Pros: "The boarding process was really fast and efficient."

Pros: "Can’t find anything good."
Cons: "The airline is protected by the government. Hence there is no motivation for them to improve. This airline is my last choice. My biggest dissatisfaction is the hospitality shown by the crew.. not sincere and in some cases rude... is this the MH - MALAYSIAN Hospitality that they keep advertising? Very disappointing.."

Cons: "Nothing"
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"

Cons: "Luggage was damaged and the airlines is not responding to my email. Web checking did not work (with an error asking me to contact customer service at the airport) at both departure and arrival flights. I never fly in middle seats but was forced to do so since the staff couldn't give me an aisle seat during check in. I am still waiting for the airlines to contact me about damages."

Pros: "It was barely two hours and that kept me from having to go to a Malaysian hospital."

They were not and not having a bulkhead seat on the first 2 hour leg from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur caused me massive pain and circulatory issues - in spite of surgical note requiring it. Not good assistance over phone or in Bangkok."
