Any business woman’s guide to travel in class: Malaysia Airlines

The Golden Lounge Kuala Lumpur International Airport

When you have a long flight ahead of you, you know as well as we do that it’s so nice to sit back for a moment and treat yourself instead of running to the nearest stand for a plain sandwich and a can of soda on the side!

Whether you want to sink into a brown leather armchair and sip a glass of bubbly before a long flight, keep up to date with the latest news on CNN or watching the departing and arriving flights on the runway, the Golden Lounge luxury atmosphere offers just this – and more!

Golden Lounge KLIA - Business-Class Seating 1

The Malaysia trip with Malaysia Airlines earlier this year wasn’t simply a one-of-a-kind holiday spot, but an all-rounded experience with the finest perks and comforts of treatment and entitlement. A pampered group of bloggers plus the Your Coffee Break team were given full access to Malaysia Airlines’ Golden Lounges at both London Heathrow and Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The Golden Lounge, located in Terminal 4 of Heathrow, provided a great networking and chatting opportunity for everyone involved to get to know one another and make plans for this exciting business trip! The Golden Lounge also gave each of us an in-need place of quiet to sit and work with a friendly and handy staff offering free delicious pick-me-ups. With equipped PCs, wireless broadband and colour photocopying facilities, the YCB team and bloggers were able to get any last minute work done and post updates to our followers on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

With a premium wine list and an international selection of hot meals and beverages, all of us marveled over freshly baked breads, pastries, coffees and teas, and a wide choice of Malaysian and international cuisine. The Golden Lounge at London Heathrow Airport was an intriguing sneak peak as to what we were going to be surprised with as soon as we arrived 16 hours later!

Malaysia Airlines first classThe 16-hour flight with Malaysia Airlines was met with class and luxury. With a topnotch staff that looked after us 24/7 and envious chairs that turned into beds, the flight experience was superior! Inside the flight, our first class room was clean and spacious with great lighting. The Your Coffee Break team was served delicious lobster, savory filet mignon, and a mouth-watering dessert plate, with a chilled glass of champagne on the side! With a wide variety of movies genres, the 16 hours flew by with ease, comfort and class!

Malaysia AirlinesAfter a long weekend of bustling Malaysian cities, sightseeing, culture and cuisine, what a better way to finish the trip off than with a purifying familiar, yet unique all on its own, encounter at the Golden Lounge at KLIA. With a First Class check-in lounge, the lounge itself was even bigger than the one at Heathrow and we all could relax and rejuvenate ourselves with complimentary universal and local beverages and snacks.

In preparations of a 7-hour difference of major jetlag, the Golden Lounge at Kuala Lumpur International Airport provided a peaceful sitting area as well as secluded rooms for us to lie down on immaculate comfy-looking beds. We soaked the entire experience in as a whole with familiar spices and recipes while submerging ourselves into welcoming beds and couches, daydreaming all things Malaysia and upcoming projects with Malaysia Airlines in the near future. Sigh! The open and luxurious relaxation rooms were the ideal atmosphere to take a welcoming step back into the professional world again and get ready for our return to the London office.
