Malaysia Airlines – London to Sydney

Malaysia Airline Prices

Booking flights early can make a massive difference to prices.  At the time of booking, Malaysia Airlines offered extremely competitive business class flights from London to Sydney via Kuala Lumpur.  Flights in mid September, booking five months in advance, cost around £1700.   Two months later, prices had almost doubled.

Seating and added extras

The business class seating area of Malaysia Airline planes is extremely comfortable.  Buttons for back massage and lumbar support offer additional comfort and the fully adjustable seats recline to horizontal position if required.  The noise reduction headphones provided are very effective, entirely blocking out the sounds of a man snoring very loudly!  Complimentary vanity bags include…

  • Toothbrush and paste
  • Refreshing spray
  • mouthwash
  • Hairbrush
  • Eyemask
  • Socks


Wifi can be purchased onboard.

Flight Durations of both Malaysia Airlines flights

The first flight is close to 13 hours.  On landing at Kuala Lumpur there is a 2 hour connection between flights.  This is ideal for having a proper stretch and wander around some shops.  The second flight is around 7 and a half hours.

Malaysia Airlines flight was extremely comfortable, with friendly staff and great food.  It is a great way to fly as a solo traveller and much more affordable if booked early.
