In addition, passengers will see
- an overall improvement in ingredients

If you’re heading southwards to Australia, you can look forward to the inclusion of more Malaysian dishes including Curry and Rendang as part of the airline’s move to provide a truly Malaysian food experience, reflecting the cultural richness of the national airline.
The new menu has been several months in development and initial response from customers has been very positive.
…. We are very excited about the new menus which are the result of an extensive meal development process based on feedback from customers and research on comfort factors for passengers on-board. We have invested an additional 20% into the cost of creating the perfect menu to suit the variety of guests on Malaysia Airlines. Our team of chefs has carefully crafted delicious meals which we are confident will significantly elevate our passengers’ traveling experience. Guests will see a significant increase in meal portions, high quality ingredients and an extensive selection of new dishes onboard. Malaysia Airlines is going through a period of rapid transformation as we rebuild from the inside out to become one of the very best airlines in the world, focussed on providing the best customer experience. The Economy Class meal improvement is just one of the many initiatives introduced as we invite passengers to see us in a whole new light as we prepare to roll out additional and exciting new offerings in the coming months. Malaysia Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer, Paul Simmons
