Malaysia Airlines Aircraft Fleet

Aircraft Landing In SunsetI have always been fascinated with aeroplanes – they way they are able to lift off the ground despite carrying that enormous weight on them. Malaysia’s national carrier is called Malaysia Airlines and I have been flying around using them and occasionally Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific. I still prefer Malaysia Airlines even though the Singapore Girls have pretty smiles. Malaysia Airlines have won many awards for their onboard services by Skytrax and I would testify that it is indeed true. If you have not flown on Malaysia Airlines, I suggest you give it a try – at least once – and judge your own. Splurge a little more to upgrade yourself to business class and you will really enjoy the service.

Anyway, I thought the following list of airplanes in Malaysia Airlines may be of interest to others:
