Just a matter of time or day before Malaysia Airlines updates/released the new issue of World of Riches (May – July Issue) . They have updated the image but the download link is still linking to the Feb- April issue.
Just got to wait for them to upload the file on to their site
Recently i flew from HK to Penang on MAS. However, as sometimes airlines do coach share, i ended up on a cathay pacific plane instead. I am not sure if you are aware but travelling with hong kongers/hong kies is always a surprise to me. Especially when you are boarding a plane. USUALLY, most flight companies have a system of ushering people into the plane : 1) elderly, family with kids, people with special needs followed by 2) passengers seated at the back of the plane and lastly everyone else.
HOWEVER, when you travel with hong kies/Hong Kongers, they will just end up lining up, regardless!!so even if you are an old lady or family with kids, you still have to line up!i will upload a pic of this once i manage to find it!! !@##$%
My main topic of this post,is not about that. Its more about Cathay Pacific cabin attendants/cabin crews/air stewardess. Lately i find that most of the younger female cabin crews are not very polite or provide a friendly face in the sky for weary travellers like me. Most often than not, they are just there to serve you food and drinks. eye contact? forget it! smile to you when they talk to you ? forget it! When you are travelling after an exhausting business trip or holiday, all you want is a comfortable flight home and friendly service, dont you?
so i decided to write a comment on my flight to Cathay Pacific and i went to their website and guess what ? they dont have a email for customers to write to!! AMAZING!
In this day and age, cathay pacific actually has a pretty good website and even web check in and iphone app, but they have an email for customers like myself to send comment to? wow. I wonder why??
What about you? do you think an email response mechanism/process is just something so simple that a big company such as Cathay Pacific should have? drop me a comment.
“Good morning, ladies and gentleman, errrrrrrrrrrr…..we are facing a short delay over the skies of kuala lumpur……….er………..we will be ….er….. landing in about er………..20min times or so………”
Last sunday i took a flight on MAS from KL to HK. It was supposed to be a 9.15am flight and when i checked in, there was a flashing sign that says ” FLIGHT DELAYED”. As i entered the waiting lounge, i could see a few engineers working on the left engine. WOW! This is what you want to see when you are about to fly! so everyone waited for 1 hour and finally we were allowed to board.
Upon boarding, i realised that i was in an old A330 plane. No individual entertainment system on board!FUCK! Ok cool down. its only a 4 hour flight and i have my laptop with me. Plane started to taxi off the runway and we took off safely.
Then it started to get chilly, i asked the “air stewardess” for some pillows and a blanket. Guess what was her reply? “Sorry sir, we ran out of pillows and blanket”. FUCK. just great. plane delayed. no entertainment and i cant even get a warm and comfortable flight to HK.
I almost forgot about the whole incident until my colleague forwarded me this article below: (click to read)
What the fuck MAS? A box of chocs for the fuckin trouble in getting two flights delayed and no hotel until 2AM? This is just not how MH supposed to be!
Its always very taxing to fly, whether its for business or pleasure. you spend an enormous amount of time going to the airport, checking in, waiting, immigration, body checks and not forgetting the frequent requests you get from lost elderly persons 😛
It was just my luck though, last week to experience a 6 hours flight from KL to Singapore. Yes, you read that right- 6 bloody long hours! My plane to singapore was suppose to depart KLIA on 3.40pm. As the plane was taxing on the runway, the plane stopped and the captain announced to everyone that there were “technical” difficulties”. Everyone was sweating in the plane as you can imagine since the plane is stuck on the runway ! 15min passed, the captain announced that everyone can resume using their phones as the plane went back to the gate.
Once we were back at the gate, technicians boarded the plane to perform checks. 15min passed by and then the captain announced that we had to switch planes. everyone in the plane was groaning and a group or pissed sporeans malay or indonesians started screaming and yelling!
you can imagine how frustrating it was as everyone was stuck on the plane without knowing if they will make it to their next flight in spore or as to my case, able to attend a meeting in time.
As people left, we were instructed to walk to the transfer counter, which is another 5-10min walk depending on how you see it. Once we reached the transfer counter, all hell broke loose. only one person was there and there was around 100++ of us!
after 20min standing in line, we were then told to follow this one MAS lady to take train to depart from GATE C. everyone rushed like mad and when we reach GATE C, we had to go through security/body checks and then line up again! WHAT THE FUCK! People already start cursing ” fuck, malaysia mana boleh?!” ” MAS = MANA ADA SERVICE!?!?” ” Im gonna miss my flight in spore!!!” …..
Do remember that around this time, everyone was already hungry, thristy as we had no time and they didnt even bother to serve us water on the original plane. FUCK!
So guess what time i finally depart KLIA from my original flight on 3.40pm? 8.45pm!! FARK! When i reached spore, it was already nearing 10pm and i also had to search for my luggage as MAS sent it ahead. Guess how i finally found my luggage? it was just lying on the floor somewhere at Changi airport….fark….really good job of handling this incident MAS.
Took my luggage, hailed a taxi cab and checked into hotel, dropped my bag at the hotel and had my dinner @ 11.30pm. FUCKING FANTASTIC.
What pisses me off is not that i had to switch plane. Its the way MAS handled this whole incident, its as if they are not trained for contigency such as this. Questions lingering in my head
1) Why were there no technical prechecks before the plane took off?
2) Its already one week and still no one from MAS contact me to apologies or explain what the technical problem was.
3) Putting my luggage on an earlier flight to spore so it will reach spore ahead of time. Very good but no one from MAS bothered to tell us what was THAT plane number and we spent time looking for it at changi!
What do you think? do you have a bad flight experience that will top mine?
OH yeah, my friend once wrote a complain letter to quantas and they sent him an apology letter & a TDK NOISE CANCELLING Headphones worth A$1xx…… i wonder what will MAS send me…..
Now this is a very interesting topic.
I tried to sign up for MAS loyalty program/frequent flyer miles (Enrich) online today :
There are two steps for you to register to be a member – the 1st step requires you to key in all your details and then it brings you to step 2, which is the shown below.
yeah…i was confused as hell. i think i need to get a PHD doctorate or something to figure out why MAS list out TWO business categories. so, i ignored this and tried to complete the form and guess what happened?
