Malaysian Airlines had been around for decades and I remember each moments we travel with the airlines, the services that they provide and more. And #todayishere brings us with a great NEW Malaysian Airlines Berhad (MAB) which had changed on 1st September 2015.
Arriving at the waiting hall to depart, we are being presented with the little cute Parker Pilot to fly with us to Penang which is their first domestic flight under #MAB. The flight is simply a good one where we are presented with some peanuts and also drinks during the whole journey.
Arriving in Penang in 40 minutes, we are ready to explore the town with our one day trip with Malaysian Airlines Berhad. We had a great time in the plane and now heading off for our gastronomic and tourist trip in the town
