I can also recommend BAEC, although I'm staying in Penang, Malaysia, and rarely fly BA.

MH Holiday packages in Y class book into Q code, so 0 tier points or Avios.

I know this because I just booked one and looked up the booking code.

It was a great deal though.

I booked Business Lite tickets for KUL-MCT-LHR just last month and was able to select seats for free. If it was a change it must have been quite recent.

In May 2020 I'll be doing a 2 day stopover in MCT on my way back from LHR to KUL, so would like to use the Arrivals Lounge. Would be grateful if you could do a quick review on it. Thanks in advance!

Yeah, flights to HKG haven't reduced in price. It's cheaper for me to fly PEN-HKG-TPE than PEN-HKG

If you can get CX/KA availability between NRT/HND and KUL with a transit in HKG you can reduce the Avios cost to 40,000 (albeit with an extra stop) due to the way distance bands work.

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...

Love Lane used to be the red light district, hence the name :D

Just a data point. I had an award flight from NRT-KUL on JAL followed by a paid MH ticket from KUL-PEN.

JAL checked my baggage through to PEN and issued my boarding KUL-PEN boarding passes as well.

Unfortunately there's a married segment issue with CX with regards to HKG-YVR.

I can book PEN-HKG-YVR but not HKG-YVR, but my father doesn't have enough for return for PEN-HKG-YVR.

Thanks...
