Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I had called Malaysian airlines, regarding my parents flight, on Friday, 14th Aug to enquire regarding rescheduling or cancelling the flights.
I was given information regarding rescheduling penalty and I was also told that there will be a 30% cancelation fee in case I decide to cancel the tickets.
Based on the information I decided to cancel the tickets and have booked tickets for other airlines as per my convenience.
However, when I called back to cancel tickets on 16th Aug, I was told that I am not allowed to cancel.
I had to do a lot of calculations to decide the...

Last night 12 February I tried to book on line but because I did not have a mobile telephone number to give I was refused three times although I have a valid land line telephone. As a consequence I had to book through a travel agent which cost me an additional $57.75 for the privilege.

Why doesn't MH website say MOBILE TELEPHONE NUMBER PREFERRED and, like its contact telephone numbers listed on its complaint form allow intending passengers the choice???
To make matters worse, my complaint on MH complaint website was rejected twice!!

I have never met this...

I made a booking via Malaysian Airlines Online booking service. I logged in as a member but unfortunately upon arriving at the reservation page, I was again asked to log in my ID and password (funny cause I have done so at the system entry point).

However, the form for second passenger did not come out and the system automatically showed a proceed button and after that, all processes e.g....

On June 23, I made an online booking for 4 persons to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam October 21 - 25. I entered the date I wanted and clicked on 'Lowest Fare' type.

I was then shown the available trips and picked my desired time. After all the necessary information provided I confirmed my ticket at a total of RM5468 and filled in my credit card details. MAS then sent a confirmation e-mail regarding my purchase. After rechecking the mail, I realized I had made a mistake of the return date and immediately called their hotline. I would be liable for an additional RM50 per ticket change,...

On 14-10-2009 I bought 2 return tickets for Penang to Male, travelling on the 10-04-2010 and returning 15-04-2010. I received a confirmation email to my personal email address on the same day. The trip is for a wedding ceremony and honeymoon in Maldives.

There were no previous contacts from Malaysian Airline, or even attempted contacts that I know of. Even the check-in desk when we left Penang did not mention...
