The aircraft’s first class seats will have an 87-inch lie-flat bed and a seat pitch of 85 inches (216cm). The A380-800 will be fitted with a Thales in-flight entertainment system and there will be a USB port and a satellite telephone facility for all seats across all three classes.

Malaysia Airlines has an order of six A380s, five of which will be delivered this year. The carrier has plans to have a second A380 on the Kuala Lumpur-London route, and possibly an aircraft for the Kuala Lumpur-Sydney route.

The chief executive  of Malaysian Airlines, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, said, "The investment in this latest aircraft, its technology, futuristic style and innovative design in cabin comfort are our initiatives to ensure that our passengers continue to experience an exciting new level of comfort, luxury and convenience. This is the identity that will move us from 'traditional classic' to 'premium contemporary' in our efforts to position Malaysia Airlines as a preferred premium carrier".

Malaysia Airlines, also known as Malaysian Airline System Berhad, is the government-owned carrier of Malaysia. The airline operates flights from its home base, Kuala Lumpur International Airport, and a secondary hub at Kuching. Malaysia Airlines operates flights in East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Middle East, Australasia and Europe.
