Looks like a recent change to the MH website removing full Miles option.
Quite honestly that's yet another devaluation to the miles.

The best flights are ones where the announcements are minimal and the (audible) volume is low.

Generally, IMO, MH is on the upper limit of announcements

If the OP booked the ticket as "First" under a BA award - they were charged "F" miles pricing.

No matter how hard MH spin it - it's not first class. It's a business plus.

Link?

I recall last year sometime if you were in full 'Y' class there was an option to buy lounge access for RM 300 (?ish).
Most of the time, full Y is more expensive than busienss class.

I don't get the logic....... for ticketed ex-SIN, but no bonus applies to the return flights on the same ticket.
