In the United States, more flights go through Atlanta than anywhere. It’s been said that on the way to heaven, worthy souls still would have to connect through Atlanta. The same can be said of Kuala Lumpur. Too many of my passport pages have been used transiting on AirAsia flights through KL.

When I booked my RTW ticket, the airline with the greatest availability was Malaysia Airlines on dated planes. With no other routing choices, I was forced to fly Malaysia business aboard a 777 from SYD-KUL. The flight was at 8:50AM and I was ready to get to my window seat and fall asleep. Upon receiving my boarding pass, I was informed that my seat was changed to a middle one.

The configuration was a 2*3*2 old school business class. I had someone to my right and someone to my left. The angle flat seats weren’t comfortable and the food was nothing special. I ended up sleeping the majority of the eight hours, purposefully neglecting to take pictures.

At least on the way out, I had some good breakfast in the Qantas lounge. Next stop Bangkok en route to Colombo, Sri Lanka.
