The newly-remodeled Malaysia Airlines Busniess Class Lounge at Kuala Lumpur’s satellite terminal is a HUGE improvement over the former business class lounge.
The lounge is located directly above the tram stop, though getting there requires a bit of walking to the nearest elevator or escalator. Note the lounge is open 24/7.
Inside, the once sterile lobby has been replaced by a cool art-deco looking check-in area.
Access is reserved for oneworld Sapphire and Emerald members plus oneworld business class travelers.
Malaysia Airlines Business Class Lounge Seating
First the downside. It’s a crowded lounge. I strolled through it about 9pm and it was packed. There were a few seats available here and there, but don’t expect to be easily able to find seats together if you are traveling as a family or with a group and traveling in the late evening.
Malaysia Airlines Business Class Lounge Food
I was very impressed by the depth of the food options in this lounge. Food is divided into several stations with a Laksa bar, panini bar, waffle bar, coffee bar, second pasta bar with more “Italian” pasta, as well as a large buffet.
Malaysia Airlines Business Class Lounge Bar
Just past the lounge entrance on the left is a full-service bar. Located in a separate room, it offers some seclusion from the larger lounge, though it was also crowded. I asked and was told alcohol WILL be served during Ramadan.
Malaysia Airlines Business Class Lounge Restrooms + Showers
Showers are available in the rear of the lounge. An attendant will add your name to a waiting list if there is a list. Restrooms are also present. The waiting list was long, so I have no shower pictures. The restroom was also crowded, so I did not take any pictures in there also.
Malaysia Airlines Business Class Lounge Nap Rooms
A sleeping room has two sides segregated by gender, with female daybeds on the right and male on the left.
Malaysia Airlines KUL Business Class Lounge Family Area
A family area offers a couch and some bean-bag chairs with a private TV for families traveling together. It was surprisingly empty.
Malaysia Airlines Business Class Lounge Smoking
In the rear of the lounge is a small smoking room protected by double doors. A sign warns not to take any food or beverage inside.
The highlight of this lounge is the many food stations. If you come hungry, I suspect you’ll leave full, even if you are a picky eater. Overnight this lounge empties out and you’d have the whole lounge to yourself. But late evenings are crowded. I give a lot of credit to Malaysia Airlines for greatly improving this lounge.
