Malaysia Airlines


Didya hear? I uploaded all my holiday photos to Flickr. Woo! Now, you can either be a keen bean and head straight on over there, or wait for the piece by piece installments that will filter through over the coming however long. I’ve decided to go city by city, but will give you the first post about a place I spent over two days – on Malaysia Airlines planes.

MH122 Sydney-KL June 28

Not the best trip – quite a full plane, and the IFE system for the block of seats we were in was screwy (cutting in and out, some buttons not working for Rish so no TETRIS). But they got the food right. For me, that meant they actually had Vegan food where promised. I care not so much about the meat side, I order vegan (VGML) for the lack of dairy and generally low-fat nature of it.

Dinner SYD-KUL. Generic overcooked veges, a pasta salad, fruit for dessert.

Just on a month until Rish and I fly out to Germany… 25 days away, planning to visit Vienna also, and will spend a few days in Malaysia on the way home, you know, to eat and to see his extended family, oh and to take advantage of having a free Stopover there with Malaysia Airlines (MH122 and MH6 there, MH123 and MH5 on return, for my airline nerdlings ;).

I trust that the backlog of volcano passengers will be cleared and we won’t have to deal with them (or have full planes, I hope not!). Of course, I bought my travel insurance as soon as our flights were paid for! Can’t leave home without that! Still have a few things to sort out, but getting there.

Still unsure of my plans for my time there… Trains will be in order.

Any tips for places between Frankfurt and Vienna that I must go?

Ta! :)
