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.

Well if you face the same issue again, next time just ask them to make you some fresh waffles and eat with the rendang chicken - the combo actually makes quite an interesting Malay version of chicken n waffles!

I have a question regarding lounge access. I am a BA Gold (Emerald) flying Y from KUL to SIN next week. My MH booking is through BA using Avios. I am flying together with 2 other persons in the same flight and they are adults. They have no status. Would I be able to bring them into the MH F lounge? We will be arriving around 1400. Or are they strict on the 1 guest rule?

I expect they will enforce the 1 guest rule.
Furthermore you have to realize that the F lounge is at the satellite terminal and your flight to Singapore will depart from the main terminal. In other words, it's a shuttle train ride away which will eat up some of your time in both directions.

Most of the time it's true (SIN flights depart from main concourse). The only flight that will depart and arrive at the satellite concourse is MH613/616 (operated by A330) and sometimes the occasional narrowbody from satellite too if there are a lot of long-haul connections.

Thanks for the info. I was just asking about the switch to the A330 so I guess it's been a month at least.
It's a good thing that I'm on those flights next month, & I'm looking forward to visiting the F Lounge for the 1st time.

The main terminal is also capable of boarding a330 aircraft, so you might have a chance to board from there. Usually some of aussie flight will board at main terminal.

But based on first class lounge review over here, you might disappointed, which business class lounge might provide better overall service quality except the noise.

For regional lounge, i believe there is a alcohol serving area, but I never go to check what they offer. I am mpre coffee drinker than alcoholic

Good to know re: widebody aircraft at the Main terminal, I always assumed that the satellite gates are larger/wider to handle erm .. widebody A/C ..

Quite aware of disappointing MH F lounge reviews, & overall disappointing KLIA itself.
(I am 1/2 Malaysian after all)
But for the experience, Iíll try it once.
As I wonít retain OWE status next year.

What Iím really excited to try is the CX HKG Pier F lounge next month!

If you'll be at MH Flounge for breakfast, I'd suggest skipping the restaurant and heading to the J lounge. The breakfast menu and spread is essentially plated J lounge food and it is very disappointing.

some positive news to add, the Lounge noodles (Domestic, Regional and Satellite) laksa has improved vastly since the beginning of July. I've managed to sample 4 of the rotation/flavors and while still cannot match that of a good hawker, it now at least resembles its name. The prawns have grown in size as well !

I recall trying a Sarawak Laksa last year, and it was nothing like the Sarawak Laksa I've had in Sarawak.

Sounds good. But for me who works long time in Singapore, I'm fine with any of them as long as not curry laksa...

I was behind a group being refused this very privilege. So unless you have oodles of charm or inside influence, I don't reckon your chances.

It's likely you'll be at the main Terminal for SIN. I's really not worth the hassle of getting yourself over to the satellite for the F lounge. The regional lounge is fine.

I had the Johor laksa at the domestic lounge this morning and that was indeed very nice and much better than what I had in recent trips! The nasi lemak looked more appetising too though I did not try it.
