Upon check-in at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) we were provided with Fast Track cards for our arrival in Hong Kong, along with lounge passes.

Business Class Cabin
Business Class Cabin

Upon boarding, the cabin was still relatively empty. The business class cabin has three seats per row in a slightly staggered fashion. Rows A and D are angled towards each other, while row K offers the most privacy as it is angled towards the back of row D.

Waiting at my seat were two pillows along with a pair of headphones which was placed on the left side of the seat.

Although the seats are fairly private since there are high walls between the seats, they do seem somewhat narrow. It almost felt like I was in a high walled coffin when in the reclined or flat position.

There is a triangular shaped ottoman which does the trick, but if you are very tall this might be uncomfortable.

Once seated and settled in, I chose a glass of water as a pre-departure beverage, which was served with a ramekin of cahsews.

About 45 minutes into the flight meal service started.

Smoked Salmon

The Smoked Salmon Rosette with Mango Salsa appetizer was served with a small side salad. I also chose some garlic bread. The salmon was fresh and tasty, while I didn’t try the salsa as I don’t care for sweet things with savory dishes.

Beef Tenderloin

The Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Pommery Mustard Sauce, Roasted Potatoes, Asparagus and Carrots was presented nicely. There were some nice char marks on the steak, which was tender but somewhat lacking in flavor, as is usually the case with beef tenderloin. The sauce helped to add some much needed flavor to the steak. The potatoes were roasted nicely, the asparagus still had some snap to it, and the carrots weren’t mushy.

Green Tea Ice Cream

The meal ended with some Haagen-Dazs ice cream. I chose the Green Tea, while vanilla and strawberry were the other choices.

Hong Kong Tea

Since we were headed to Hong Kong, I naturally had to partake in the Hong Kong Style Tea.

Service during the flight was great friendly and the flight attendants were always present throughout the flight.
