Malaysia Airlines has been awarded 5-star status in the SKYTRAX World Airline Awards, joining an elite group of airlines to receive this prestigious ranking for their truly consistent and high quality of product and service.
Announced recently at a ceremony held at the worldrenowned Farnborough International Air Show, Malaysia Airlines also received the prestigious accolades of World's Best Airline Cabin Crew' and ‘Best Airline Signature Dish' for its Satay, a traditional Malay dish, served in the Business and First Class cabins. The World Airline Awards are the global benchmark for airline excellence, with over 18 million travellers from over 160 countries and 100 different nationalities taking part each year in the world's largest independent passenger satisfaction survey.
The exclusive top-tier 5-star rating and Cabin Crew prize is the most coveted of all the categories and a significant achievement for Malaysia Airlines. Malaysia Airlines' on-board dining was also selected as the best in the skies, with the signature Satay, Malaysian grilled chicken and beef skewers in spicy peanut sauce, given the accolade of best signature dish on-board any airline. Later this year, MA will join oneworld, becoming the second carrier in the alliance to operate the A380.
