No babies in 1st class on jets: Malaysia Airlines
Malaysia Airlines CEO said first-class passengers were not sleeping “due to crying infants”.
Melbourne: Malaysia Airlines has decided to ban babies from travelling first class on its new Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-400 fleet.
According to the Australia Business Traveller, Malaysia Airlines CEO Tengku Azmil said first-class passengers complained about spending a lot of money and not being able to sleep “due to crying infants”, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The airline has decided not to install bassinets in the first class cabin of its Boeing 747-400 fleet, and those wishing to travel with babies will have to book bassinets in business or economy sections instead.
The airline’s 747-400s fly between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, as well as KL-London and KL-Amsterdam, with the Airbus A380s due to take over those routes next year.
