This aircraft is fitted with the new Malaysia Airlines regional business lie-flat seats. The seat reclines to a slope at about 160-170 degrees which isn't the most comfortable sleeping position as you tend to 'slide' down towards the footrest. Also the cushioning is very firm making it hard to sleep. A thin mattress (like they provide on Emirates business class) would help.

I think they really missed a trick here when you compare to the more comfortable 180-degree flat bed business class products like Qatar or Etihad.

On the positive side the service was very good with friendly, attentive crew who were always smiling and helpful. The food was good and the champagne and wine selection also very nice.

Row 5 has larger seat pitch due to the bulkhead position in front of it. This part of the plane is also quiet since it's located away from the engine and nobody hardly pass by the area during the flight (the separator curtain blocked the business and economy section throughout the flight).
No IFE onboard Malaysia Airlines B737-400 but they are in the process of retiring this aircraft type and upgrade into B737-800 with IFE offering.
Cabin crew service is flawless (who else can match the hospitality of 5 times winner of Best Cabin Crew). Catering was good too and MAS used meal box to serve domestic route; a handy pack to consume onboard as well as to bring out of the plane.

14A and 14F are one of the best seats in economy class you can get! Because of the 2 emergency exits in row 11 and 12, there are no seats at 11A&12A and 11F&12F! In result of those missing seats, you have an unbelievable big leg room, of the length of 2 seat rows!

This "special cabin" is great. Only two rows of seats. The seat converts into a bed (not fully flat) and service is good. Personal entertainment system is provided and a full variety of international magazines.
