I traveled with Malaysia Airlines on both my trips to Malaysia. So twice I took the Delhi-Kuala Lumpur flight and back. So far my experiences have been good with them.
Check In: I did the web check in (for that window seat) and thankfully there was a separate queue for web check in which was much shorter. I do not travel with too much luggage so I have never faced the excess baggage situation. So all my check in experiences were smooth and efficient.
In Flight Entertainment: I just do one thing in the flight, I watch movies, non-stop. I try to catch up on all the junk pictures I missed out on. Now Delhi Kuala Lumpur is not very long (5 hours or so) so I manage only two full movies each way. There was a large collection to choose from! Some of the movies that I have watched on this route are ‘I am Sam,’ Rock Star (Hindi), Vicky Donor (Hindi), Devil Wears Prada and a few more! So I have been entertained on my flights.
Food: The food has been fine but I have outgrown airline food now in general. I still look forward to the desserts and they were good on the flight. However I crib if I get really poor food but it has never been the case with all my 4 flights with Malaysia Airlines. On Delhi- Kuala Lumpur flights getting a vegetarian meal is not an issue at all even if the original booking said non-veg. I always asked for a glass of wine and it was served with a smile. I was asked if I would like a refill but I declined. They offer tea and coffee and give you eye contact too while serving. On a few other airlines the crew just pass holding tea and coffee and if you blink and miss them, there goes your coffee! Nothing like this on Malaysia Airlines in my experience.
Leg Space: Do you really want to know about leg space in coach class? Well I am not very tall or bulky (yet!) so the space was adequate for me. It is the usual as it is in the economy.
Service: You notice good service only if you get to experience otherwise. I always got good service from them. What I like most is that it was easy to draw their attention and they would readily give me eye contact.
Overall: A decent airline that I would fly again with!
