I had written on it before and this is just and update. The flight is pretty much similar except that TV is available and they even distribute headphones on such a short journey.
They also finally have an airside lounge, which is still a third party lounge (Sama-sama lounge)

As I had to make an urgent trip back to Malaysia, I booked a last minute flight on Jetstar. Coming back was rather tricky as it was a weekend and very near to Christmas, hence the price was high! Thankfully, I still had some leftover Avios in my British Airways Executive account which I used to make a redemption on MAS Business Class.

The sad fate of the MH A380-800
This was written up earlier by BD during his flight back to ZRH from KUL via DOH. Finally I had a chance for me to try out this lounge. This is a different lounge from Plaza Premium Lounge which is a Priority Pass lounge (this is not). This lounge serves as a Business Class Lounge for Qatar Airways (and also 3 other airlines). The lounge is not very big but it is more than adequate as it handles only a handful of Business Class passengers.

Plaza Premium First lounge in KLIA Satellite (not to be confused with Plaza Premium Lounge) is a brand new lounge in KLIA that has been contracted by Qatar Airways to serve as their Business Class lounge. This lounge also serves as the lounge for Etihad and Turkish Airlines too. It is located near Starbucks.

I booked this trip as a one way ticket as I missed out on Malaysia Airline’s promo return Business Class ticket which I usually get. I looked around and found Malindo’s promo ticket at RM 590 (all inclusive) for 2 to Singapore. This worked out to be only SGD $95 per person on Business Class which I feel is a steal!

This is the return segment of the flight I did back in February 2017. Since October 2016 I have been using return J ticket on MAS from KL as the price is exceptional at only SGD $200 return. Due to my recent trip, I had not book my return ticket and by the time I realized it, the promo Business Class ticket is no longer available. I decided to get a one way Malindo from KUL-SIN instead (which I will review later).

With the conclusion of TTOTY Part 1, it is time to plan for TTOTY Part 2. This will be the following route:

- Qantas Business Class Lounge, Changi Terminal 1
As Malaysia Airlines no longer maintains a Golden Lounge in Changi Airport, the lounge service has been contracted to SATS premium lounge. As Malaysia Airlines is now part of the One World Alliance, I would recommend one to hop over to Terminal 1 to try out either Qantas Business Lounge or British Airways Executive Lounge (both are just next to each other). One does not need to be a tiered member to access the lounge (something which Garuda quoted to stop me from using GA lounge in DPS while flying on KLM J).

I recently concluded my short Seoul getaway. I bought the tickets in September when MAS had a promotion at $1068 (incl. tax) for Business Class (which was a great price). During the October promotion, the price went down further to $1018, otherwise the normal price was about $1900-2000. 2016 is the year MAS introduced the new J seats progressively and I managed to catch the new seats just in time as the changeover for Seoul happened on 31 October.
Despite the excellent price, there were a few disadvantages of this flight. Firstly, the KUL transit. This can be mitigated either by taking an 830pm flight to KUL (leaving just slightly less than 2 hours of transit time) or one can opt for a morning flight and spend half a day in Kuala Lumpur instead. The flight time between Kuala Lumpur and Seoul is about 6.5 hours, leaving you barely any time for nap (especially with the meal service factored in). Lastly, the return flight from Seoul is 11am, hence one full day is wasted. If you are willing to compromise on these, MH J at this price is definitely a steal!

My final leg for my October trip was my KUL-SIN flight on MH619. I bought this flight as a return flight from KUL and it cost me about $203 (not a bad price for a J return tickets).
