In the afternoon, we had Boeing 737-800 Staff Open Day. Yes, the new generation aircraft is here! In fact, it just arrived from Boeing field in Seattle on Monday. We were given two hours to see, touch and
Welcome to MH family, dear B738! We have been waiting for you!
That is NOT a simulator. Will you fly with me?

The economy class seats look lavisher than ever!

Noses up with pride and joy!

One advice, NEVER ever do this when the aircraft’s engine is running. The turbine will suck you in and you’ll be minced meat within seconds!

This spanking new B738 is fitted with equally new Boeing Sky Interior and Malaysia Airlines is the first full service airline in the world to operate with it. What does Boeing Sky Interior mean? It means (among others) leather seats, bigger overhead compartments and – what I like the most – individual high resolution screens to watch movies of your choice!
The aircraft that you see here is the first of 55 (yes, that many) B738 that we have ordered, in addition to 25 A330 and 6 A380. By 2015, we will have one of the youngest and most environmentally friendly fleets in Asia Pacific.
The inaugural flight for the B738 is scheduled for 15 November 2010. The flight flies from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu, then to Haneda, Tokyo.
So when was the last time you flew to Kota Kinabalu (or Tokyo for that matter) in style? With school holidays coming up, this is the perfect time to do so! Book your tix and give our new ride a try!
