MALAYSIA Airlines (MAS) is upgrading first class and business class for its Boeing 747 and Boeing 777 series aircraft in stages, Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Azlan Sultan Abu Bakar said. 

He said 15 Boeing 777 200 series aircraft have been upgraded and 17 Boeing 747 400 series aircraft would follow suit. 

“The airline is confident of improving its ranking in the best airline category via the introduction of new products such as sleeper seats, a sophisticated entertainment system and new menu sets in Boeing 747 and Boeing 777,” he told Datuk Mohd Salleh Tun Said (BN – Kota Belud). 

He said the Skytrack Quality Survey showed MAS had dropped from fourth place in 2003 to eighth place last year in the “Airline of the Year” category.
