boeing 737-800 has arrived!

Yesterday was a hectic day at Subang Airport. Traffic was congested as early as 7:30am. Police officers were everywhere to look for Zaza ensure safety in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s visit. The US Secretary of State was here as guest of honour at Malaysia Airlines showcase on our longstanding partnerships with US companies (i.e. Boeing, Pratt and Whitney, GE). She then returned home from Skypark in US government’s official jet, after ending her speech with “Malaysia-America bollleyyy!” :-D

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 fly feel the aircraft. It was an opportunity not to be missed; it gave us the chance to get familiar with our fleet and develop even stronger connection with the company’s operations.


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!


Our boss’s secretary coming out of the aircraft’s rear door.


My “Horatio Caine” pose ;-)


Some tired people and pigeons at the hangar. It was an incredibly hot afternoon.


A full look at our brand new ride.


Noses up with pride and joy!


XA is safely stationary at SZB.


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!

Jump!

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!
