This was the first time in over a decade that I have stepped on board a Malaysia Airlines Plane, as well as a B737. I have not flown the single-aisle baby Boeing since the late 1980s, on a trip to Langkawi. So this short 40 mins trip was sort of a revisit to see how it would feel to be flying with the Malaysian national carrier and this iteration of the B737.

Well, I was excited when I got to the Gate at KLIA and saw this Retro livery MH B737 rolling into view. I never got a chance to take a planespotting shot of this beauty the last few times she visited Singapore, and today I was blessed to be flying on this specially painted 737. Since it was such a short flight, there wasn't much to review. So I'm just gonna break it down into point form below.


1) Affordable airfare

2) New Boeing Signature Sky Interior (LED Lighting makes all the diff) 3) Seats are quite comfortable, more spacious than Budget Carriers

4) IFE system available bit slow on responsiveness. gotta press hard on the screens. The person behind me was pressing REALLY hard!
