    OT received an email from Heathrow rewards may be useful to someone:

    “To celebrate the new decade, Malaysia Airlines has partnered with Heathrow Rewards to offer members an exclusive saving. You will receive up to 15% off flights, until 25 January 2020, by using the code ‘HEATHROW’ when you book. The code applies further reductions to current Malaysia Airlines promotions in Economy, Business Class and Business Suite classes.

    Malaysia Airlines flies twice daily on the state-of-the-art A350 from Heathrow Terminal 4 to Kuala Lumpur and onwards to amazing destinations in Malaysia, Southeast Asia and Australasia.”
