FLIGHT DEAL : Malaysia Airlines (MH) Business Class Promo from Bangkok (BKK) to Various Destinations

Malaysia Airlines (MH) Business Class Promo from Bangkok is back. I've seen this kind of promo since 2015 and this year around only I've seen this kind of promo for 3 times. Tentatively in April, May and today in July. 

Last year, while I was on paused from blogging, I enjoyed this promo once which is Bangkok (BKK)-Kuala Lumpur(KUL)- Hong Kong (HKG) return at THB 11,580 (~MYR 1,450). The reason being was to experience Malaysia Airlines Business Class Seat on wide body Boeing 777-200ER which now the service has been downgraded to narrow body aircraft Boeing 737-800 on MH72 and MH73. Plus, to speed up my entitlement for Enrich Gold last year where this trip alone enable me to get 8 Elite Sectors return, excluding flight from KUL to BKK. But the catch is, you have to fly from BKK.

Earlier this year also I've booked myself on a trip BKK - KUL - Tokyo Narita (NRT) for this coming September. To justify myself why I sealed this offer because I wanted to try Malaysia Airlines new Business Class on A330.  That was booked at THB 24,135 (~MYR 2,800) where at the same time the Economy Class was selling at MYR 2,100. A difference of MYR700 will definitely give you a new experience. 

Today after I had conversation with my fellow travellers on twitter, @rambleandwander and @ahmadnajme on what I blogged yesterday on Qatar Airways (QR) Business Class offer, they highlighted to me that there's another offer going on with Malaysia Airlines flying from BKK to London Heathrow (LHR). This automatically reminds me on the deal that I experienced last year on BKK-KUL-HKG and this is almost the same as BKK-KUL-NRT that I will experience it in September. So I made a quick random check on few dates and destinations.

Malaysia Airlines (MH) Business Class Promo from Bangkok (BKK)
Route: BKK-KUL-Various Destinations Return
Booking Date: Offer ends July 27, 2016
Travel Date: July 16, 2016 until April 30, 2017

Bangkok (BKK) - Kuala Lumpur (KUL) - Incheon (ICN)

Return flight on random dates in August will only costs you at THB 16,645 (~MYR1,886) for a Business Class trip. At the same time, I checked on a return ticket on Malaysia Airlines from KUL-BKK return on the same dates (but in Economy Class), only will cost you MYR 410.90. If we add up KUL-BKK return and BKK-ICN return the total would be MYR 2,296.90 for Business Class flight on Malaysia Airlines. 

I also made a quick check KUL-ICN return on the same dates, the ticket fares are MYR 7,045 for Business Class and MYR 1,698.90.  

Fare difference if you willing to extend your trip of 2 hours to Bangkok one-way, you can save MYR 4,748.10 and able to experience Malaysia Airlines Business Class! However, the new A330 on Seoul will only be available in November, but the promo fares also applicable for these flights.

I also made a quick check on few other destinations. This fares also applicable for Tokyo Narita (NRT) at THB 23,650 (~ MYR2,690.33), London Heathrow (LHR) at THB 57,070 (~ MYR 6,468) and Melbourne THB 36,915 (~MYR 4,183.70).

As per what I reviewed it before on Qatar Airways Business Class promo from KUL to Paris Charles De Gaulle, this promo is at par. Flying out from South East Asia to Europe / UK has never been this cheap as low as RM6.4k return.

These promo fares is definitely worth it since the price of normal Business Class return from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) is very expensive about 100-200% higher. Please keep in mind that this promo has never been advertised from Malaysia Airlines Malaysian website. This can be seen advertised from Malaysia Airlines Thailand website here.

To buy it or not? It's up to your judgement, but from my point of view, this is a superb deal if you would love to try on the new Malaysian Airlines (MH) Business Class on A330 and this week alone, I've reviewed 3 Business Class offers which is irresistible.
