Business Class on Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia Airlines has a spectacular reputation as an airline, and even more so when you’re talking about Business Class on Malaysia Airlines. The variety of amenities and features in the seats make it easy to forget there’s another level above Business Class (although the fact that the seats don’t recline to fully flat may remind you).

The Business Class cabin on Malaysia Airlines will vary slightly depending on the kind of aircraft you’re on, but the differences are minimal enough that I’m going to outline what’s available on a Boeing 747-400 below and not quibble over a few inches of seat width between one plane and another.

  • Seats recline to lie-flat (but not horizontal to the floor)
