Registered 9M-MVAMalaysia Airlines’ re-engined single-aisle aircraft still has no official configuration, its 42 737-800 which can accommodate 16 passengers in Business class and 144 in Economy, or routes on which it will initially be deployed.

Every aspect of the design of the cabin has according to Malaysia Airlines “been carefully designed to enhance passenger comfort, such as the seat upholstery which features a debossed songket pattern, showcasing intricate patterns and vibrant colors of traditional Malay textiles. Whether passengers settle into their seats or move through the planes, they will be surrounded by an ambience that exudes serenity, elegance and a deep appreciation of Malaysia’s cultural tapestry.”
When ordering from ALC last year, the alliance company Oneworld pointed out that this year is related to the restructured terms of our existing backlog with Boeing “: Malaysia Airlines had “suspended” at the beginning of 2020 the deliveries of fifteen 737-8 and ten 737-10 expected since 2016 (with 25 options), before rescheduling them last May for 2024. These 25 aircraft still appeared at the end of June 2023 in the listings of the American aircraft manufacturer, without it being known whether they will be replaced by those leased .
