Update | Malaysia Airlines will introduce its brand new Airbus A380 onto the Sydney-Kuala Lumpur route later this year – click here for details of the layout and dashing new-look livery.
Previous | Malaysia Airlines is adding more business class seats to its Airbus A380, which is set to make a mid-year debut with MAS between Kuala Lumpur and London.
The airline originally allocated 52 business class seats on the upper deck, but according to seating plans lodged in the booking system used by travel agents, two extra rows of six seats have been added, for a total of 64 seats.
The changes also mean that the upper deck economy class cabin will shrink from 96 seats to 68, found in rows 32-40.
Malaysia Airlines has also changed the dates when its brand new A380s will start flying to London.
Service will begin on 1 July (moved up one day from 2 July), but full daily flights won't be seen until 25 August (from KL; 26 August from London).
Business class on MH's A380 will run six-across, although the airline has not yet released information on the seats it will use.
Existing Malaysia Airlines flights use the relatively uncompetitive angled lie-flat seat seen above.
