Malaysia Airlines to introduce more business class seats to Australian travelers

This fall, Malaysia Airlines will make changes to its Australia routes, which, in turn, will provide individuals who prefer to purchase business class tickets with more flight options, Australian Business Traveller reports.

The airline's reshuffling of its Australia flights will affect individuals who fly out of Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth, according to the news source. Beginning September 26, Malaysia Airlines will replace the Boeing 777-200ER planes that are used on their Adelaide flights with the Airbus A330. The same change will take place for the carrier's Melbourne-Kuala Lumper flights as well.

For Perth flights, the airline will slowly phase in the Airbus A330 on weekends until December, when most flights will operate aboard this aircraft, the news outlet states. By mid-February, all passengers for Perth flights will ride aboard the A330.

According to Malaysia Airlines' website, the new Airbus A330 provides passengers with a state-of-the-art interior that features mood lighting and other in-flight amenities. Travelers who purchase business class airfares will have their choice of 36 seats in the aircraft's premium cabin.

These angled lie-flat seats are arranged in a 2-2-2 configuration that allows for increased levels of comfort and privacy. The chairs are electrically operated and allow passengers to adjust their headrest when sitting up right, or get a get some rest as the seat folds out to become a 75.2-inch bed. Other features include a fold-out privacy divider, leg rest and one-piece tray table.

As many of the travelers who choose to purchase business class fares will be professionals, the cabin provides passengers with a controller that serves as an air-to-ground phone that also allows individuals to send and receive electronic messages while high above the ground.

If passengers are saving their work for when they step off their aircraft, they can enjoy a variety of in-flight entertainment options, including their choice of more than 100 hours of on-demand movies, television programs, music and video games. After travelers have selected something to watch, they are treated to gourmet meals that are made from farm-fresh ingredients.

On top of all the perks that Malaysian Airlines customers take advantage of when they purchase business class tickets, the carrier also provides a complementary amenity bag, which contains essential comfort items such as moisturiser and lip balm.
