Malaysia Airlines currently has some great fares as a promotion for the MITM travel fair, with some routes being significantly discounted!
There are only a few days to book with the sale period from 13-17 Aug 2015, the Travel period is 16 Aug 2015 – 31 Mar 2016 so you can book pretty far out. Flights can depart from Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Miri and Kuching.
Business Class Sale
Generally I always take a first look at the business class fares, and in this case they are pretty good especially for the some of the long-haul flights.
You also get the chance to fly on the A380 on some of Malaysia Airlines’s routes – London and Paris. Here are some of the possible fares:
London, Paris, Amsterdam – RM 11,249 Return
Auckland – RM 8,519 Return
Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide – RM 6,109 Return
I’ve used these promotions in the past for a mileage run as these are still business class fares and earn elite Enrich Miles. Generally though I avoid the short-haul flights as I don’t think the value is there with the short-haul product.

Economy Class Sale
There are also Economy class flights on sale too, with some super cheap flights available, including London return for less than 2800RM.
There are short-haul fares on sale including Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam starting from RM249. There are also domestic flights starting at RM169 available too. All the sale fares can be found here:
The short-haul fares aren’t going to be as competitive compared to the low cost carriers like AirAsia, but if you have Enrich status then at least you can still enjoy the benefits even on these fares.
Note that the booking class for these fares is “O” so they only earn 25% of Miles and are not upgradeable using a redemption upgrade.
They are however still eligable for MHUgrade the paid upgrade service. To find out how to find the booking class or about MHUpgrade check out the links below:
In addition for those who collect with other Oneworld airlines note that these “O” class fares rarely earn any miles or status credits.
