I have been luicky enough to do two seperate trips to Europe this year, most recently over the past month. This time I travelled with my sister, brother in law and 21 month old niece.
We travelled together on the following flights:
MH140 BNE-KUL 777-200
MH004 KUL-LHR 747-400
BA700 LHR-VIE A320-200
BA697 VIE-LHR A320-200
BA314 LHR-CDG A320-200
MH021 CDG-KUL 777-200
MH141 KUL-SYD-BNE 777-200
Additionally I spent some time travelling solo and took the following flights:
OS275 VIE-TXL F70 (First flight with OS and on a F70)
LH3802 TXL-ZRH 146-200 (First flight on LH and on a BAE146-200)
HG8537 ZRH-VIE A320-200 (First flight with NIKI)
Part 1 - Brisbane to Kuala Lumpur
28AUG08 Malaysia Airlines Flight MH140 BNE-KUL
Aircraft: Boeing 777-200
Departure Gate: 78
We were allocated the bulkhead for this flight so we had a bassinet for my niece. We had been told that we had one spare seat which was blocked however on board a lady and her son had the other two seats, I didn't realise until after the flight that the lady actually had my allocated seat otherwise I would have said something.
Flight departed Brisbane ontime with a decent load probably around 75% in Economy.
Served dinner around 2 hours after departure, chose the Boiled Hake with mashed potato, quite nice.
Small breakfast of very nice muffin and small ski yogurt served about 90 mins from KL.
Conditions were generally good with some minor turbulence around Indonesia.
Our cruising altitude varied between 35,000 and 40,000 feet.
I generally tried to sleep with little sucess which seems normal for me.
Arrived in KL spot on time at 5:30AM.
