Lovely

Subang airport might not be as big as KLIA Sepang, but back then its Terminal 1 was a grandeur of its era. I sometime thought that the current KLIA 1 terminal seemed to borrow parts of Subang terminal 1 design.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

It's just pity that Subang Terminal 1 building have been torn down. It could have been used for LCC terminal, or even aviation museum!

Well, I think the terminal was just way too old to be functional, even as an airport museum... yet, in retrospect, I think that the old terminal could be retained, removing all the old ticket booths, immigration counters, and the like, and made some sprucing to allow aircraft from Malaya's past to be displayed in there. It requires quite a lot of creativity to develop a proper air museum.

T1 was a troll to fly through. I remember flying frequently through T1 in the 1990s, even Don Mueang was better.

The approach however, nice.

^That last point..that's what I thought too. I never had the chance to fly through T1 since when I started going on Intl trips KLIA was up and running.

I will admit that the only terminal I stepped landside was the SG-KL Shuttle terminal, so I can only comment on the airside of all terminals. In a nutshell, the corridors were dark, dingy and unbelievably cramped, gate hold rooms too small to accommodate any load of passengers. Generally, it felt like a small town community airport but therein lays its charm - it made transfers a breeze, especially if the transit times are short.

Just got back from first trip to KL on Monday and was impressed by both the original KLIA and new KLIA2.

KLIA2 a low-cost carrier terminal? it's anything but! A few pages back there's a few pics of shoddy workmanship but to be completely honest, I didn't notice it (and I had a good 2 hours meandering about the terminal).

Was travelling in a group of 10 for a wedding and 1 of the group is a travel agent who's been to KL over 15 times in 5-6 years. He recommended that we just all get taxis when we arrived (KLIA, we were in Singapore for a few days before) to get into town and straight to hotel - sure that works. But I left at a different time to others and I got the train from KL Sentral - the train eats that very long, 4 freeway-change drive hand's down, regardless of how many people are travelling.

You're best to just put up with KL taxis (friends decided to take taxi from hotel to KLIA on return trip, one of the taxi drivers started falling asleep whilst driving over 100kph! hahah) for the "last mile" of the transfer from KL Sentral to wherever you're staying (we were in Ritz-Carlton / Jalan Imbi / Bukit Bintang) IMO.

as it was first trip to KL (I had previously done the day-trip across the causeway to Johor Bahru from Singapore back in '08), I'd only heard stories of the old LCCT (I flew Air Asia home, premium/biz on sale: will DEFINITELY be flying that again) and I can only assume it was like a larger version of Tullamarine's Terminal 4 (Tiger Terminal) which is also now incidentally getting a major refit.

The only real criticism I have of KLIA2 is that once you've gone through the secondary security point (at start of both piers off the central retail concourse), you don't really have many retail options. It's not a big criticism but that was the only noticeable negative point (oh and yeah, if you're flight is at one of the ends of the piers, it is a big walk, but eh - only a minority of people would get pissed at that).

On the whole I'd say the whole KLIA+KLIA2 complex is extremely good, befitting of a capital city airport and overall right up there with the world's best.

Have already started planning next trip to Lumpy Koala () + Penang for next year

Does Malaysian Airlines offer any direct flights from Los Angeles and/or San Francisco to Kuala Lumpur, or do you have to make connecting flights?

Malaysia Airlines used to fly to LAX. Routing was KUL-NRT-LAX. It was terminated w.e.f April 30, 2014.

They currently do not serve any destinations in the United States. Sad really.

Nope... to do that, you will need to make a connecting flight somewhere, like:

- Hong Kong (with CX or UA)
- Manila (with PR)
- Taipei (with CI or BR)
- Tokyo/Narita or Haneda (with JL, NH, UA, DL, or AA)
- Seoul (with OZ or KE)

You can also get it from Singapore and fly SQ instead (LAX via NRT with an A380, SFO 2x daily -- via ICN or via HKG, both with B77W).

MH codeshares with AA on the KUL-NRT-LAX route (not sure about SFO). AA metal flies over the Pacific to NRT, MH metal to KUL Almost all flights from Southeast Asia to the West Coast US require a stopover (sans the West Coast-MNL route, it seems); of the two airlines I've flown to the West Coast, KE and CX, I'd pick the latter pretty easily (the transit experience at HKG is superb).

I am still not as well versed in reading these codes as some of you (though I am making steady progress), so do bear that in mind.

Most of these I can decipher, but I am at a loss as to what airlines NH, CI, and BR are supposed to stand for.
