On Thursday (July 21, 2022), Malaysian Airlines revealed a new refreshed Boeing 737-800NG cabin design. The design pays homage to the airline’s Malaysian identity which will be experienced the moment passengers board, and features new seats, as well as the innovative wireless MHstudio inflight entertainment (IFE) system. The newly refreshed cabin will debut at the end of July 2022 and will be progressively rolled out to a fleet of 38 aircraft. The bright and refreshing color scheme is complemented by the airline’s batik motif, that is recognized worldwide and is included throughout the cabin, from the upholstery to the curtains.

In Thursday’s announcement, Malaysia Airlines Group’s Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer, Yin May, said,

“We are thrilled to roll out the newly refreshed B737-800 NG, which will deliver future travel experiences through innovative features from seats to highly customisable inflight entertainment while staying true to our roots by incorporating Malaysian elements in the overall interior cabin design. The cabin refurbishment exercise began in 2021, a bold step taken by the airline in response to feedback and suggestions received through customer surveys and various focus group sessions in 2020 to better understand the needs of our customers. This demonstrates Malaysia Airlines' commitment to adapt to changing consumer needs and in improving overall customer experience in the post pandemic era.

“We are pleased to share that our in-flight entertainment is a game changer offering extensive media content, including award-winning local and international movies and TV series, as well as in-flight shopping. All of these are done to give our guests a taste of the warmth and hospitality that Malaysia Airlines is known for whenever they travel with us.

“It is becoming increasingly important that we do everything with sustainability in mind. The all-new features of our refreshed B737-800 NG fleet will reduce our carbon footprint from the reduction of the weight of each aircraft - with the much lighter seats, use of soft cabin dividers and moving away from seatback screens to offer innovative in-flight entertainment features allowing for wireless streaming on board at their convenience.”

Malaysia Airlines’ refreshed Boeing 737-800NGs are configured with 12 Business Class and 162 Economy Class seats, in a 2-2 and 3-3 configuration respectively. The new lightweight ergonomically designed leather seats have been designed for added comfort and enhanced functionality, including personal device holders and charging outlets. The wireless MHstudio IFE system, lighter seats, and soft cabin dividers made of light materials, all combine to contribute the Malaysia Airlines’ ongoing sustainability efforts, reducing the fuel burn per passenger by 8.0 percent.
