Malaysia Airlines wins pack of awards

Malaysia Airlines’ superior service has again been acknowledged and praised by Travel + Leisure magazine, National Geographic’s “The 10 Best of Everything: An Ultimate Guide for Travelers” book and Skytrax Research, the world’s leading airline industry research firm.

The June 2006 issue of Travel + Leisure magazine placed Malaysia Airlines number five in the “Top Airlines for Service” international flights category.

This annual World’s Best Award invites magazine readers to rate hotels, cruise lines, and airline services. The airline rankings reflect in-flight experience and customer service.

Malaysia Airlines was named as one of the ten best airlines in the new book, “The 10 Best of Everything: An Ultimate Guide for Travelers” from National Geographic. The authors, veteran travelers Nathaniel and Andrew Lande, noted that Malaysia Airlines “continues to set new world standards with their enhanced in-flight services, reliable ground support…and the warmth and friendliness of its staff.”

The “Best Economy Class Onboard Service Award of Excellence” award went to Malaysia Airlines in Skytrax’s annual survey of frequent long-haul passengers. Skytrax recognizes outstanding customer service in the airline industry. Malaysia Airlines was given the top award for its customer experience for a long-haul flight, seat comfort, in-flight entertainment, dining, and the efficiency and quality of the staff.
