After 10 nights in Perth/Western Australia, of which 7 days on the road, it’s time to return to Kuala Lumpur. Although we flew Economy into Perth, we flew Business on our return. On this flight, there were 16 passengers out of the possible 27 in Business. The check-in was a matter of walking up to the counter and be attended to immediately. Our MAS A330-300 flight departs at 3.50 p.m. and arrives Kuala Lumpur at 9.30 p.m. Perth & Kuala Lumpur is in the same time zone.
Business class check-in, Perth T1 airport.
Mind your business.
A short while after airborne, lunch is served. It starts with MAS signature dish, satay. Coming from a family in the satay business ourselves (previously), the chicken satay was tender and good. The peanut sauce can definitely be enhanced. For appetizer, poached prawns was served followed by the main course, pan-seared chicken breast with mashed potato and vegetables. Dessert was ice-cream (very nice), cake & fruits. And in-between, there were nuts and endless fruit juice.
Fruit juice and plain water served in glassware. No plastics.

This mango ice cream originating from Australia was really nice.
Business class seats towards the back. You get a sort of ‘mini cabin’ to yourself.
The leg room that goes under the seat of the front passenger. This allows you to fully stretch in ‘flat bed’ position. The pillow is there just to get it out of my seat. On a A380, there will be a side ‘bin’ the pillow can be stored in.
A 1-2-2 configuration on some rows and a 1-2-1 on others. Note the leg room.
Lights dimmed, seat fully reclined flat and time to doze off till we arrive in KUL.
Goodbye Western Australia. Perth aerial view.
Priority luggage tagging. Luggage was already on the carousel in KUL when we came to pick it up.
