Malaysia Airlines Reviews
Imagine a world with no commercial aviation. Difficult, eh? The convenience brought by the emergence of commercial aviation literally transformed the way we all live. Imagine the slowness of everything. From traveling to sending relief goods, everything would be at a much slower pace.
Thanks to innovations in the airline industry, people can now visit a different country in just a few hours. However, higher innovations meant higher customer standards. Businesses in the airline industry must prove their worth before they can be called “successful airlines”. With that, today we will be looking Malaysia Airlines reviews, to see if this airline can satisfy their passengers’ increasing needs and wants.
Origins and Ownership
Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB), or simply Malaysia Airlines, is Malaysia’s flag carrier and also one of the country’s major airlines. MAB was founded on October 12, 1937 under the name of Malayan Airways.
The CEO of Malaysian Airlines since May 2015 has been Christoph Mueller. Prior to joining Malaysia Airlines, Mueller had worked as Aer Lingus’ CEO. In 1988, he graduated from University of Cologne where he received his MBA in Accountancy. With his education and experience, Christoph Mueller was highly praised for playing a pivotal role in the financial rebound of Aer Lingus.
People’s Thoughts on MAB
I am seeing quite a lot of mixed passengers’ opinions after searching for Malaysia Airlines reviews. Some customers seem to be highly pleased with their flight while others had lots to complain about. Among the positive airline traits were: the extra spacious leg room, the friendly cabin crew, and the free wine. For the negatives, sadly, there’s quite a lot. The most prominent issue usually involves the ground staff and customer support representatives.
A customer complained about not being able to receive an explanation for the cancellation of his flight. Another passenger got angry when the ground crew insisted on weighing his mother’s wheelchair, and then added that to their weight allowance, which, according to him, was never the case for other airlines.
More customers commented on the decline of the airline’s service quality, which was probably due to the cost-cutting activities that are currently happening to the airline.

Malaysia Airlines offers three cabin classes to suit their customer’s budget needs. These classes are: the First Class, the Business Class and the Economy Class. Inflight meal options may depend on your class. Most customers noticed that a lot of their dishes are a little bit spicy, so if you’re not a fan of spicy foods, inform the flight attendants immediately. Their meals comprise of an appetizer, a main course and a dessert.
MAB features the Going Places inflight entertainment system, which includes new and old movies, a wide array of TV shows, music, radio channels, e-learning systems and even video games. Recently, the Going Places ife system released several multi-player games.

A Recuperating Airline
After overcoming the crash of their MH370 and MH17 aircraft, the airline is now undergoing a fresh start and may need several months to a few years to fully get back on track. Unfortunately, this recovery process may have hit their quality of service, at the expense of their passengers. Passengers who have written the Malaysia Airlines reviews that I’ve read seemed to be highly unsatisfied by the route the company seems to be trekking. Hopefully, the airline fully recovers and regains the glory it once had.
