Flight Review: Malaysia Airlines MH607 from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1 by Boeing 737-800 (from Jakarta)
For this final leg to Singapore from Jakarta, I’m booked on Malaysia Airlines MH607 from Kuala Lumpur. At the time of my trip, Malaysia Airlines MH607 was the last flight of the day from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. While this meant that I had a long transit time in KL, this got me a cheaper fare (but it was still expensive overall), and a chance of a proper dinner in KLIA while waiting.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport
My Malaysia Airlines MH607 flight was departing from Gate G8 at the Contact Pier of the Main Terminal Building.
The Contact Pier of the Main Terminal Building was still very quiet during this period, almost like a private airport.
Taking the travellator to Gate G8.
Heading to Gate G8 for at-gate security screening and to the gate hold room.
Heading down the escalator to the gate hold room after security screening.
9M-MXY will be flying me back to Singapore.
The gate hold room wasn’t too crowded which was a surprise as I couldn’t change my seat assignment at check-in in Jakarta.
Boarding was called at 9.25pm, 20 minutes to departure.
Heading down the aerobridge.

My seat at 28A.
The legroom available on board Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 737-800 in Economy Class.
IFE was available on thie aircraft. However, due to the short flight, headsets were not distributed. The IFE will still work if you have your own headset with a 3.5mm jack.
Entertainment was available, but were quite outdated. However, the world froze up for 2 years prior to my flight, so it’s not like there’s plenty of new shows to watch in the world too. There’s also no headsets provided on this flight anyway.
Still being sort of in the pandemic, hygiene kits were given out to all passengers which contains a non-surgical face mask, a sachet of hand sanitiser, and a sachet of sanitary wipes.
Flight information was also not yet available when the aircraft was still on the ground.
It was not a full flight this night. I wonder why the check-in agent in Jakarta said it was.
The Boeing Sky Interior was switched on with white lights on the side and blue lights in the middle.
A hygiene safety video was played before the regular safety video.
The lights were dimmed to a shade of red for the safety video.
The regular safety video follows.
After the safety video, a Journey Prayer for Muslims was flashed on the screen.
Pushing back from the gate.
Lights were dimmed for take-off, with a blue light in the middle remaining on.
My Malaysia Airlines MH614 flight departed from Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 10.05pm – 20 minutes delayed.
The flight information screen was active after take-off.
290km to go.
Each passenger received a packet of peanuts and a cup of orange juice. Water is also available on request, but the crew ran out of water by the time they got to my seat.
Lights were changed to plain white during the snack service.
Arriving in Singapore with the sight of ships in the anchorages.
Lights were dimmed for landing, with a blue light in the middle remaining on.
The downtown Singapore skyline as seen from on-board Malaysian Airlines.
Approaching mainland Singapore.
Passing by SMRT Changi Depot and the future East Coast Integrated Depot (ECID).
Landing on runway 02L.
The flight map disappeared upon landing, changed to a thank you screen.
Taxiing to Terminal 1.
Parked at Gate D42. At the time of my trip, Malaysia Airlines was still using Changi Airport Terminal 1. Malaysia Airlines has since moved back to Changi Airport Terminal 2.
Disembarking from the aircraft.
Heading up the aerobridge.
It was a short walk as Gate D42 is just before arrival immigration.
Heading down for arrival immigration.
Heading past the duty-free shops after immigration.
Baggage reclaim follows. However, my Malaysia Airlines fare did not get me any check-in baggage.
Heading straight for customs and exit since I have no baggage to reclaim.
Here, I continued on my public transport back home.
