Kuala Lumpur daily

Malaysia Airlines has introduced daily non-stop A380 flights between Heathrow and Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) as its second Airbus superjumbo joins the fleet.  This comes six weeks after the airline celebrated the launch of the inaugural A380 service, which operated three times per week up until now.

Malaysia Airlines’ A380 flight MH3 departs Heathrow daily at noon and arrives in KLIA at 07:35 the next day.  The inbound flight departs KLIA daily at 23:40 and arrives Heathrow at 05:50 the following day (local times).

The Malaysia A380 has a capacity of 494 seats with 350 Economy and eight fully-flat First Class seats on the main deck, and 66 fully-flat Business Class and 70 Economy seats on the upper deck.

The unique selling points of Malaysia Airlines’ A380 include the widest First Class seats of any aircraft in the skies at 40 inches and the introduction of the gourmet ‘Chef-on-Call’ service – currently available in First Class – to all Business Class guests at the end of September.  This service, which allows passengers to order their desired dish prior to departure, raises the bar in in-flight dining.

Every seat throughout the aircraft is equipped with a Thales touch-screen, a USB port and satellite phone facilities. www.malaysiaairlines.com
