If I recall correctly, there is only one Priority Pass pass lounge, the Plaza Premium, in the MH terminal(Terminal 1?) and it is in the satellite section of the terminal which is a pain if you are departing from the main part as you have to get a train there and back. The lounge was crowded with just OK food when I was there in February, definitely a very average lounge.

I don't see anything under Tokyo except for Narita.

I was answering your question about priority pass in KUL. I believe there is only one PP lounge in KUL Terminal 1(KLIA) and from personal experience I can say that it is just OK, nothing special.

Thanks a lot guys. I love FT!!!
Not the most cost effective but probably one of most enjoyable would be SFO-HND or LAX-NRT on JAL F, bookable with 100,000 Avios each way. From Japan to Malaysia it's cheaper to go through HKG, so HND-HKG-KUL instead of direct NRT-KUL due to the way BA bands work. The former is 40,000 Avios while the latter is 60,000 (for business class).

With JAL's change to opening up awards 360 days in advance, BAEC members can easily get F awards nowadays.
