To kick off the wiki on the new main lounge thread I added a brief overview of the MH lounges at KLIA.
I invite others to add relevant info on location, access requirements and opening hours.
Globalist

All the Malaysia Airlines lounges at KL International Airport (KLIA) have now been reopened after renovations.

Malaysia Airlines has 3 lounges at KLIA.

The KLIA Domestic Golden Lounge.
Located in the domestic terminal for domestic departures, towards the 'A' gates. Open 5am-12am.


The KLIA Regional Golden Lounge
This lounge is located in the main terminal building for international departures. Open 5am-12am.
To access it use the escalator near the Aerotrain platform between the G and H pier.
This lounge is airside and accessible for international departures only,

The International Golden Lounge at Satellite KLIA
This is the largest lounge. It features a Business class section and a separate 'Platinum' area + dining room for Enrich Platinum, OWEs & MH F passengers. (There is also a small First Class Suite area on the Platinum side for MH F passengers.) Open 24hrs.
This lounge is airside and accessible for international departures only. This lounge may also be used by arriving passengers on MH flights either having flown MH First / Business or with Enrich Platinum / Gold status only can also use this lounge - no access for OWE / OWS.

The F (er, Business Suite) Lounge has changed its champagne to Drappier Cote díOr - which is actually rather light and pleasant to drink.

this seems to be inconsistent, because a few weeks ago (March 18), the champagne was the usual De Venoge Cordon Bleu. The champagne was Drappier Carte d'Or in early January... and De Venoge in late December.

Did you forget to attach the menu? Am curious as I will be visiting the lounge in about 2 weeks time, so was interested if this is something that I should make time for....

What's new with MH - being inconsistent seems to be their trademark....

Cheers!

Its nothing special looking at it. Its more like a reduced offering if you look at the menu.

Also there's a problem of me being able to upload photos from my phone. I don't know why.

Had the nasi lemak this week and boy was the sambal pungent! Too much demented (typo: fermented) shrimp paste (belacan) that didnít blend well with the chilli...

And they served the same dish in flight. After the meal service, the entire cabin smelled like there was a toilet leak onboard!

many Malaysians (and SEAsians) actually enjoy the smell of shrimp paste.

Wait to you actually smell fermented durian "tempoyak" or "cencaluk" , even shrimp paste can't beat it. One of American Youtuber foodie Mark Wiens love it so much every time he is in Malaysia even I am local but I don't like durian at all along with "tempoyak".

Haha... it is the real sambal. But if you get used to Singapore Nasi Lemak then you most likely feel Malaysia's style is abit strange.... But once you like it, it almost guarantee that you will enjoy this in every 4-5 star hotel buffet breakfast

the pic didnít load - it happens to me too
Can someone share the correct way to upload pics on FT?

From 3-6pm, are those the only items available?
iíd prefer main course items like beef or lamb etc.

if so, Iím gonna book FY to SIN / XSP instead.

I tried real hard uploading the pix, then had my tech-savvier travel mate try...nothing.


Yesterday’s afternoon menu still looks like nldogbert’s #170 post.

Just the Laksa had changed to a Penang Asam Laksa.

There was also a Won Ton noodle soup on the menu.

Both of which you could have had in MH’s Business Lounge.


Champagne was still (or again) de Venoge.

Food spread was very limited in the Flounge.


Petit CX lounge is missing its noodle bar. No Champagne, either.

I grabbed an Economist and had canned green tea instead.


No need to fly via KUL for the lounge experience for sure.

I suppose there are some merits of flying through KUL over SIN. There's an F lounge (at least what's left of it and until the QF lounge SIN opens). MH Golden Lounge food a lot better than the spread at BA's SIN lounge, and not nearly as overcrowded as QF's lounge nearer to the departures of the evening QF/QR/BA flights.

Additionally, have anyone noticed how cheap and ridiculous the Royal Selangor Displays are (which is almost guaranteed to be advertising, sponsored by Royal Selangor)? I mean it would have looked nice on a stand and good lighting, but with the way the are displaying it inside a protective glass box in an 90s-esque jewellery store manner just looks cheap.

I thought they were trying to do away with the cheap looking brand advertising in the lounges after the renovation.

Iím surprised there wasnít a noodle soup option at the CX lounge. Were you there between lunch and dinner or between breakfast and lunch perhaps? The noodle soups are much better than what you get at MH lounges imo.
