We chose Malaysia Airlines cos it was literally barely half the price of Singapore Airlines direct flight. Maybe cos Christmas time so flights all round really expensive. First leg SIN-KUL departing Changi ...

Then we got our successful bid for MHUpgrade to Business Class on the KUL-ICN/Seoul leg, for "only" s$2xx, lucky!!!

... but then at KLIA, apparently the "main" international lounge is closed for renovation so everyone just cram into the "regional" lounge, it really was super crowded and the food only so-so ...

MAS business class seat!

The seat is pretty decent actually. Of course not as opulent as SIA or Emirates or Qatar (etc) 1-2-1. But there's enough storage, the seat can recline to resting and flat / sleeping mode, even got massage function in the back. Good enough for the (relatively cheap) price IMO.

Oh ... but the in flight entertainment really sucks compared to the more 'leading' airlines, old movies and limited TV shows.

They served Satay for supper ... which wasn't bad for airline food.

In bed mode, the seat is a little cramped, but long enough for me to sleep comfortably (I'm 6'0"). I think broader shouldered people might find it a tight squeeze. The feet area light can control on and off (they call it "mood lighting" ...)

Breakfast was pastry, muesli and a fruit plate. Service quite inconsistent, I didn't get any jam and honey and I didn't get the hot drink I ordered. Meanwhile my wife didn't get any pastry/bread and she got served her muesli with no milk (wtf?), and had to ask a few times to get milk ...

Breakfast main courses: Choice of omelette or nasi lemak. no telanjang found.

Our first AirBnB was near Mullae station (on metro line 2). So we took the Airport train to connect to Metro.

Actually Seoul train system really good. Got MagLev, got high speed train, got 20 metro/underground lines plus don't know how many more commuter trains. All well labelled, all the stations we went to had clear as day directions, ticketing using the T-money card is easy as 1-2-3.

I used to think SG had a kick ass public transport system but on the world stage it really is just so-so only icon_idea.gif
