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.
