Article: Malaysia Airlines Business Class Seat Guide

Thanks Wilson.

To add:
MH’s 332s are ex-airBerlin planes, and the business seats have not been changed. These seats are narrower and don’t have a side console or much storage (like Apex suites).
Also, while they are perfectly comfortable as a seat, the entertainment screen feels very far away and the controls are clunky.
They also don’t recline fully flat. There’s a noticeable slant to the upper part (where your head goes). To add to that, the seats are short (I’m 185cm and can’t fit without bending my legs), so it’s pretty difficult to sleep.
 
Last may i used syd to Colombo on business and worst seat and belt that goes around your neck and food was atrocious and landed in Sydney with out any food since its not palatable . To add to the injury qantas gave points as economy class.. Never again on Malaysia line or qantas.
 
I have access to BAEC and did not know its better than qantas ff.. Now i have moved to spore air with their gold status match i will see if it is a better value..

QF punishes you for flying other OW airlines to/from Australia.

You can get full Status Points if you pay for Flexible Business or cheaper D class, but that is not available online and must be booked over the phone or with a travel agent.

The 332 ex air Berlin are being phased out. Replaced by 333.

Im just looking at booking MH - so they only give status credits at business class level if it's Flex business or Class D? The other business classes all count as "economy"?! What??

Cheap Biz = Flex Y
Not just MH but quite a few OW partners discounted that way

Thanks! I just looked up the QF status calculator and that looks awful.
I flew with CX recently and noticed the status credits are reduced compared to qantas but it's not at economy rates. Do you know which other OW airlines get screwed over like this?

It's on the QF Website
Look up the calculator and partner earning table.

It was substantially changed during the pandemic.

You pretty much get ripped off on every OW airline in/out of Australia.
MH earn is the worst though

Except AA i believe. They're also the only (?) one that codeshares flights with QF in and out of AUS in OW.
