Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Amazing crews"
Cons: "Nice seats"
Cons: "The selection was rather dated as I travel very frequently I noticed it. Otherwise it would probably be fine for most"
Cons: "There were no vegan options available. I think that was my fault though because I did not set one up in advance. Would be nice if they offered one anyhow."
Pros: "First time on Malaysian. At least we didn’t disappear. All was okay except for the meal on the flight to Saigon. I’m not one to complain about airline food but the “meal” served was execrable, possibly the worst in 65 years of flying. And no alcohol on an international flight was niggardly in my estimation.. The flight from Penang to KL they had the cheek to serve a tiny cup of fake orange juice. I will avoid Malaysian in the future."

The pastry was nothing but a lump of dough with tasteless fillings, and the main meal was atrocious. Everything else was mediocre, except the crew, who were friendly and warm as always,"
Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco.

The airplane was an old 330 with shitty bathrooms, and I can't forget how one of crew keeped knocking on me in the toilet and he actually opened the door and said nothing at all which pissed me off,because I work for airline company and I had been in many once before but that behavior is amature once from supposedly experienced Crew member. Anyway save your money and time and avoid this airlines."

Cons: "Very uncomfort flight, very bad timing, Food is not good"

Pros: "Efficient and quick to load the plane and then take off."
Pros: "Free beer and wine. For breakfast the egg dish wasn't bad. Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable after a few hours, not good for long flights. Seats have very little leg room so for someone over 6 foot tall it will not be comfortable."
Pros: "I appreciated the free baggage allowance and the staff were nice, but otherwise they were a huge headache to fly."
Cons: "They changed the times on BOTH of our flights by HOURS, which resulted in me having to buy a ticket with another airline to ensure we wouldn't miss our connecting international flight. Horribly unreliable, will never fly them again. Honestly airAsia was a better experience than with Malaysia Air"
Cons: "Check in counter personnel were very slow. They did not know proper immigration rules. They made me wait for 30 minutes while they verified with immigration on something I had already told them. I had to rush through immigration and security to ensure I made the flight on time.

Cons: "This route used to have new planes with AVOD at each seat but the airline seems to have switched back to old planes which really should be kept for domestic sectors"
