My comments include the return flight to KL in seat 3A. I won't repeat comments already made by others, but can confirm that in both 3A and 10A the lie flat bed length was fine for my height (5'8").
Both seats are showing signs of age in that some functions did not work or operated partially. That combined with the generally grubby flat surfaces and metallic trims, suggests that cabin maintenance could be rather better. Not what I'd expect on such a young fleet.
Seat 10A was reasonably quiet, but I found 3A to be better as nobody was passing forward to the front toilets, which the crew had advised biz pax personally as not available (the two people in Biz Suites had them to themselves). This is rather unsatisfactory as that means 35 biz pax (plus cabin crew spending long periods in them on make-up retouching) have to make use of the remaining two.
Service was good without being outstanding, but certainly fine for the cheap biz pricing MH currently offer.
