MAS: First in the world to fly on board B737-800
I KNOW :) And i thank you for that...
For now, i wanna bring your attention towards a once in a lifetime epic adventure that i was invited to join recently... MALAYSIA AIRLINES SYSTEM (MAS) our national air-carrier with a TRUE Malaysian Hospitality has done it again!
What is it this time? MAS is the 1st airline in the world to receive the all new BOEING 737-800, the replacement model to the B737-400. This aircraft is set to fly a direct route between Kota Kinabalu (KKIA) to Haneda (Japan). Recently on the 15th of November, marks an important day for both MAS and Malaysia as we happily launched the 1st commercial flight for the B737-800 from KKIA to Haneda.
What's so Special about the B737-800???
Even my dad has been asking me... not only that he wants to board one! Yes, he travels to KK, Kuching, Tawau often... but oh well told him that for now MAS only use the new aircraft for flights between KK and Haneda. But not to worry, MAS ordered 55 of these aircrafts to replace the previous model (B737-400) that will cover the current domestic and certain short distance international flights.
What to look forward to onboard the B737-800!!!
- The high ceiling, yes it's higher than the 400 series!
- Thematic mood lighting, there's the BLUE SKY light too!!! It changes color depending on the mood that is set.
- Hand baggage compartment is more spacious and better.
- Seats are leather fitted with a TOUCH SCREEN LCD Screen with Audio & Video on demand! A variety of TV series and movies for you to watch! For young kids to adults :)
*More pictures are on Facebook, soon i will post it up here on my BLOG :)
Oh Yea....another piece of story for you... wait up next year!!! MAS gonna bring you another brand new aircraft... but this time around, is it gonna be an Airbus or another Boeing? Stay tuned aights :)
