Should be a guaranteed A330-300 with new business seats on NRT-KUL. If I am reading the seat map correct, it looks like some aisles are 1-2-2, and others are 2-2-1. Even a few 1-2-1 rows. Consider this when booking if you want a single seat with direct aisle access.

Also, I saw a KUL-DPS leg on the A330 which surprised me (not sure if it's an A330-200 with maybe not the new business, or if it's the new, better A330-300) - the return to KUL was on a 737. Malaysia is always obsessed with using their apparent huge fleet of 737's on many flights 5 hours or under which has turned me off from using them in the past.

All their 333s have been retrofitted, so any route that's served by the A330 is basically guaranteed of the new J product. The last 332 left years ago.

The configuration is 1-2-1 alternating with 1-2-2. Nothing too tricky about it.

It is nothing to do with obsession. The airline had to retire their entire 777 fleet after the twin tragedies and as part of the airline's economic recovery plan under the new management.

They have had to make do with the limited number of 330's they have and to maximise the use of their 737's to get back into the black.

They are now slowly introducing 330 flights for the Kul-HKG and Kul-DPS sectors which will happen in stages.

A lot going on at MH at the moment with talk going around they are going to lease 330's by the end of this year to cope with demand.

Good to know the backstory. I wish them well. I've wanted to use them, but just could not get excited when every time involves a stop in KUL (when often I can get direct for similar pricing) AND it has been on 737's like clockwork.

I look forward to trying their A330's soon, or even a 737 if I have to go to KUL for some reason.

I think they will be better judged next year if they can get those 330's they plan on leasing and how they cope and where they use their 330's on routes.

At the moment, they are trying to do a lot with a limited number of aircraft. And demand is good for MH now.

I doubt if MH codeshare with JAL intra-Asia excluding KUL-NRT/KIX.

Same price on China Airlines on their 777/A350 lie flats. They're supposed to have a great hard product for what it's worth.

MH fares valid from secondary cities at the same price,cts,fuk etc. CI has this price regularly but does involve a long layover in TPE on atleast one portion (stpc applicable).
