Malindo Air is a new sensation in Malaysia aviation industry in Malaysia. The first hybrid airlines stands in between low-cost carrier such AirAsia and full service carrier like Malaysia Airlines (MAS).
The first Malindo Air promotion which was launched few weeks ago offers promotional fares of RM68 one-way all-inclusive from the KL International Airport (KLIA) to Kota Kinabalu and RM38 from KLIA to Kuching.
Passengers who choose Malindo Air Business Class can fly from RM388 and RM588 to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu respectively. With the introduction of Business Class, for those who use to fly with AirAsia will have Premium Flat Beds for comparison.
One thing that you need to know, Malindo Air uses the brand new Boeing B737-900ER planes which have a capacity of 180 seats each and capable of serving destinations within a five and a half hour range.
Malindo Air provides comfort of plush leather seats designed with 45″ pitch letting you stretch out and unwind.
Business Class passengers in Malindo Air gets meals during flight. AirAsia premium Flatbeds gets complementary meals.
Passengers have access to in flight entertainment and power sockets that allows them to work on their laptops for an extended period of time. AirAsia offers universal socket points too.
Malindo Air offers 30kg baggage allowance while AirAsia offers only 25kg for Premium Flat Beds travelers.
On top of all the above, AirAsia also provides “pick a seat”, “priority check-in”, “change flights without penalty”, “priority boarding” and “priority Baggage delivery”.
Malindor Air Business Class better than AirAsia Premium Flat Beds is a subjective question right now. We need to provide Malindo Air more time and more flight to proof that their whole service from the time a customer place a booking until they safely reach the destinations.
