Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong
Leave 1:45 PM, Arrive 5:35 PM
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.
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.
The entertainment control, seat controls and power outlets were to the right.
There is a coat hanger to the left of the front of the seat.
There is a triangular shaped ottoman which does the trick, but if you are very tall this might be uncomfortable.
There is also an armrest along with a reading light on the right side of the seat.
There is a small storage space to the left of the seat.
Once seated and settled in, I chose a glass of water as a pre-departure beverage, which was served with a ramekin of cahsews.
The menu and wine list were then distributed.
About 45 minutes into the flight meal service started.
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.
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.
The meal ended with some Haagen-Dazs ice cream. I chose the Green Tea, while vanilla and strawberry were the other choices.
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.
