From the flagship flight of Malaysia Airlines, it’s now back to reality on Malaysia Airlines’ most frequent international route, from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore on Malaysia Airlines MH607, the last leg of this UK and Ireland holiday. From the Satellite Terminal, it’s a familiar Aerotrain ride over to the Main Terminal Building to catch the usual Boeing 737-800 back to Singapore.

A Condor Boeing 767-300ER parked at a remote stand at KLIA Satellite Terminal. Condor operates low-cost flights between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Frankfurt, Germany. Hmm, perhaps I’d like to try it some day.
A Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900 at KLIA Satellite Terminal. Aww, why couldn’t my ticket codeshare on this instead.

Heading to the H gates.
No further changes to be made, my flight would be departing from Gate H4.
Thankfully, there wasn’t a crowd at security.

With Gate E1 being the first gate of the pier, immigration was just up ahead.

Collecting my bags from the nearest baggage belt at Belt 31 too.
As always, my bag was already waiting for me on the belt, so I was out in a flash.
Overall, a usual simple, no-frills journey from KL to Singapore, though this time it’s part of a long-haul ticket. This thus marks the end of my long-haul holiday. Thanks MH for the cheap fares and good long-haul service to and from London.
