Malaysia Airlines, one of only five carriers in the world with a five star ranking, is offering a complimentary first class upgrade to business class travelers flying to Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and other destinations in Southeast and South Asia. Effective immediately, full-fare business passengers may upgrade to first class, subject to seat availability, on long-haul flights originating in Los Angeles.

First class travel aboard Malaysia Airlines is the ultimate in luxury and hospitality. Newly designed cabins feature high tech seats with a massage feature and convert to comfortable, flat-bed sleeping pods. A large wooden dining table and buddy seat, allows passengers to dine together. Dining is รก la carte and served whenever the passenger desires. An array of ethnic and continental menu items is available and a must-try is the airline's award-winning signature dish, grilled satay with a spicy peanut sauce. Fine china and Italian glassware, and an extensive wine and spirits offering, make dining a pleasure. Modern in-flight entertainment features audio and video on demand, with 350 options viewed on a 15-inch LCD touch screen. Mood lighting in the cabin, automatic window shades and an extra large lavatory with full-length mirror are just some of the features available for first-class passengers.
