Earlier this week we launched a fantastic competition with Malaysia Airlines.
Malaysia Airlines is generously offering a pair of business class flights to Malaysia from London Heathrow for one lucky reader. The winner will also be able to experience an ultra-luxury, three-night stay at the brand new One&Only resort at Desaru Coast. More details can be found here.

The winner of this brilliant prize will fly to Johor International Airport via Kuala Lumpur, enabling them to be in close reach of One&Only Desaru Coast, but also giving them the opportunity to explore the southern region of Malaysia. There is plenty to see such as the Endau-Rompin National Park, home to the Malayan tiger, and the east coast islands of the Seribuat Archipelago, including picture-perfect Tioman.
Three nights in the newest jewel of the One&Only resorts crown, One&Only Desaru Coast, will give the lucky winner the chance to relax in ultra-luxury. Take a look at the website here.
About Malaysia Airlines
As Malaysia Airlines have very kindly sponsored this competition, we wanted to highlight some of the benefits of flying with the airline.
Last summer, Rhys had the opportunity to fly in both the new Malaysia Airlines A350 Business Suite, reviewed here and A350 Business Class, reviewed here. He was very impressed, enjoying the First Class experience that the Business ‘Suites’ offered at a lower price point than many other First Class products and the new seats and layout of the standard Business Class.
It may be an odd time to discuss flying to the Far East, but it has been really interesting to talk to Malaysia Airlines about their booking patterns and how they’ve coped throughout this strange six months.
At the start of the pandemic, the flights from London to K.L. were busy, largely due to Malaysian citizens working in London, or Malaysian students at university in the UK who were flying home to be with family. Currently, the opposite pattern is true – those same expats and students are now returning back to the UK so flights to London are busy. In addition, flights from Malaysia to London and Amsterdam continue to carry large quantities of PPE equipment for utilisation in the region. The team at Malaysia Airlines are buoyant about the future, with plans to increase frequencies soon.
The A350 continues to fly from Heathrow twice a week to Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia Airlines have taken great efforts to ensure travellers are safe and protected during the pandemic. All onboard staff are required to wear PPE, including gloves and passengers are required to wear face coverings. In addition, the aircraft cabin undergoes regular sanitisation and disinfection and customers are given complimentary hygiene kits. Malaysia Airlines also continues to offer a full meal service across all cabins particularly on long haul flights.
If Malaysia is a destination you are considering once travelling opens up again, it may be worth looking at some of Malaysia Airlines ‘Economy Flex’ fares now as this allows for unlimited changes or even a refund at no extra cost. You’d be able to change the flight or get your money back if travel next year is still looking unlikely. As someone who is totally unable to pack light, I also like that Economy Flex comes with a hefty 35kg of baggage as well as priority baggage, priority check-in and priority boarding.
As part of oneworld, customers can also collect and redeem Avios as well as earn Executive Club tier points when booking Malaysia Airlines flights to Southeast Asia and Australasia.
