Malaysia’s first A380

Tomorrow (Tuesday 29 May) will see the delivery of Malaysia Airlines' first Airbus A380 at Toulouse.  The airline has six on order with the first due to go into service on the Heathrow – Kuala Lumpur route 2 July, initially three times per week.  A second aircraft arrives in August when flights will go daily.  Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines have been chosen. Malaysia becomes the eighth carrier to operate the aircraft.

Malaysia’s A380s have a capacity of 494 seats, with eight fully-flat First Class on the main (lower) deck and 350 Economy.  Upstairs there are 66 fully-flat Business Class seats and a 70-place Economy section, which should prove very popular.

The introduction of the A380 follows the upgrading of the Malaysia Airlines' Golden Lounge at Heathrow’s Terminal 4, which features pre-boarding dining and shower facilities and impressive views overlooking the runway at Heathrow, as well as a new Golden Lounge at Kuala Lumpur.

A Thales seat-back on-demand system, with easy-to-use on-screen controls, will offer every passenger the latest in-flight entertainment.  All seats in all classes are also equipped with USB ports and satellite telephone facilities.  Malaysia Airlines is due to join the oneworld alliance in the last quarter of 2012. www.malaysiaairlines.com
