Malaysia have yet another sale which offers 15% off business class. You need to book by 26 August for travel until 30 June 2020. Some fares may be cheaper as a companion fare so it is worth searching for 2 as well to see if it lowers the price.

They have a good business class product out of Heathrow with a dedicated lounge, A350 aircraft and good seats.

Malaysia previously had First class but like many airlines, they got rid of this not long ago. However, they still have the seats on the aircraft and are now calling it a Business Suite. You can read Paul’s review of Malaysia First class here since it is not really much different to Business Suite. The product is basically identical in terms of onboard service, food and amenities to the old First class. Lounges have been rebranded as Business Suites Golden Lounges in Kuala Lumpur and London.

It’s completely free to create an account. When you search for hotels, you choose your preferred loyalty program for earning rewards.

Read the terms of the hotels carefully before booking, as most are non-refundable.
They also have a useful feature which shows you the price on a couple of the major websites so you can see if you are getting a good deal. Personally, I will sometimes be willing to pay slightly more if there is a big bonus on offer. For example, on the promotion below, you could easily earn 20,000 Avios for a 3-night stay.
