Malaysia Airlines' long-haul economy class offers a very generous 34-inch seat pitch on Boeing 747s and 777s, however it is only 32 inches on Airbus A380s and is set to be this way for any new aircraft that come into the fleet.
On the 747 and 777s, there are 6.5-inch seatback TVs which also act as games consoles. TVs on the A380 are 10.6 inches and these seats also have power points and USB ports.
Malaysia Airlines is a full-service carrier, so expect free food and drinks. A bonus is that the free hold baggage allowance is 30kg.
