[quote=“Rascal”]you can’t fly over china so you have to stop somewhere, usually Hong Kong or Bangkok,
:?: What do you mean by that? I mean there are direct flights from Taiwan to Europe. Not sure about London, but e.g. our (in)famous China Airlines flies Taipei to Frankfurt non-stop.[/quote]
Really ? I didn’t know that, but I wouldn’t even look at China Airlines when planning a trip
[quote]weren’t told that the plane had another stop.
Now that should be clear from the (insert the i-word here). Never been on a plane and didn’t know it’s going to “stop” somewhere I wasn’t aware of. Are you sure you weren’t taking a bus … ? [/quote]
We were led to believe that it was non-stop from KL to Taipei, didn’t find out until we got there that is wasn’t. That was probably the travel agent’s fault for giving us the wrong flight
[quote]The air in the airport (this was the old KL airport though) made me feel sick
Airports aren’t run by airlines, so don’t blame MAS for that. In any case it’s not only the air inside the airport but in general which is pretty “bad” there due to the high humidity and temperatures (mixed with the foul smell).
Perhaps 7 years down there made me imune against that smell but the new airport seems to have a good air-con system … [/quote]
Nothing to do with MAS, I know. But it made the trip even more unpleasant, It was due to all the people smoking, nowhere to escape it for the 5 hour wait
I only took MAS the once, maybe everyone was having a really bad day that day
