Satay Time!: Malaysia Airlines Airbus 330 Business Class from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur!

I had a leftover Lifemiles ticket ex-HKG and needed a way to get there from Sydney.
I found a seat (seems MH releases one seat in J at a time per flight) from SYD-KUL and built in a 20 hour layover before a KUL-SIN-HKG flight.

As  an American Airlines Executive Platinum I had access to the Qantas First Class lounge and tried it out before my flight up to Kuala Lumpur.

Old School mechanical departures sign! Really cool!!

Calamari!!! :D

Mac or Windows?

Qantas First Class lounge @ SYD

The 330 is one of the newest planes in the Malaysian fleet but has a horrible seat which doesn't fully recline causing passengers to easy slip down the seat. These seats are now being replaced by a lie-flat seat.

The flight was originally booked at 10% two weeks before the flight but filled up to about 50% on the day of the flight, loads weren't that great in Y either.

Service started with a small palate cleanser and then it was Satay time! I had both the chicken and beef stays and their reputation is true, they were absolutely delicious!

I had pre-order (via email since the website is broken) a 3 meat combo (my stock photo) which somehow became just a beef and sausage on my flight.

Since we were landing around 430, I did my best to pass out after dinner, skipping breakfast to get some additional shut eye since I had a long day ahead of me.

We landed a few minutes ahead of schedule and it was a short ride on the train to the satellite lounge to get some breakfast and leave my bag at the MH locker before heading on a daytrip to Brunei.
