This is the compilation of the in-flight food I got when I traveled from Kuching to Newcastle, UK. Left Kuching on 13 August 2023 and left Newcastle on 30 August 2023. We arrived in Kuala Lumpur on 31st August 2023. We were lucky to be one of the last batch of passengers to experience proper in-flight meals by MH before the catering fiasco.
I’ve not gone on an MH flight for ages! The last time was in 2019 from Kuching to Newcastle. This time, we were also flying with MH to go to Kuala Lumpur for our transit to Dubai and then to Newcastle.
Kuching to Kuala Lumpur (MH)
They had chicken rendang and sweet and sour fish on offer. Truth to be told, we didn’t like them. The chicken rendang was spicy. We didn’t expect the sweet and sour fish was also spicy. I suffered a gassy tummy all the way to Newcastle after eating the rendang. Hmm…
Anyway, I guess these were some of the last from Brahim’s. So must commemorate it hahaha! We used to take it for granted ;p However, I love how the water was served in a bottle. That way, I didn’t have to worry about water spills and I could drink it anytime I wanted.
WAH! Wooden cutlery… Gone were the days when you got proper cutlery in MH economy class. Oh well… Anyway, let’s see what Emirates had on their economy in-flight meals.
Kuala Lumpur to Dubai (EK)
Got a chicken sandwich as supper (I guess…). Not a fan of sandwiches. Then, for breakfast, I opted for potato. Not too bad.
My parents went for the curry-looking rice dish. I don’t remember what it was though. Didn’t get good feedback from my parents. However, it’s good to see proper cutlery used on Emirates. No plastic, no wood. So much better of course.
Dubai to Newcastle (EK)
Next, these are for breakfast (I guess…). Two options, egg sandwich or apricot pie. Didn’t like any of them. Just not a sandwich/pie person. Nevertheless, I still finished the food.
This tray came with the sandwich/pie. There’s muffin and blueberry yogurt. At least these two were not too bad. Why do they serve blueberry yogurt on every flight? Do you know some people are allergic to blueberries?
Before we reached Newcastle, we got lunch. Went for potato again. The taste was OK. The other option was rice which we didn’t want to get anymore. Couldn’t stand those spices. I was still having a gassy tummy from the rendang that I ate on Kuching to Kuala Lumpur flight. ARG! We’re given proper cutlery in this sector too. I really don’t like those plastic or wooden ones.
Newcastle to Dubai (EK)
After spending over 2 weeks in England, it’s time to go back home, Kuching. Of course, it’s Emirates again.
Went for a potato dish again hahaha! This time with beef meatballs. Not bad. I also asked for red wine. I forgot to tell them to just give me a little. They gave me a full cup. Aiksss… I didn’t finish it of course. Only had 1/4 of it then I poured the rest away into the toilet bowl. Didn’t like the wine.
Then, we got shortbread and pastry for snack time. The former was nice, not too sweet. In fact, I had this before at home. It’s not cheap selling in the airport. Meanwhile, the latter was not of my liking and I didn’t finish it.
Dubai to Kuala Lumpur (EK)
This time, I had thoughts of getting white wine with my meal. Instead, I opted for orange juice. Didn’t like the snack on this flight. I only ate half of them. Then, for lunch, we opted for the omelet option. Something lighter to eat than having rice. Was quite exhausted and in no mood. Didn’t really get to rest well on the flight even though we were on an A380 with spacious seats compared to the B777 that we’ve been flying in the previous sectors. That was because we were seated next to the galley. Oh well…
Kuala Lumpur to Kuching (MH)
Finally! Back to Malaysia! Waited for quite a long time for the flight to Kuching. We arrived in the afternoon while our flight was in the evening, that’s why. It was 31st August 2023.
So, here’s the food for the last leg of our flight. The wooden cutlery was back hahaha! As usual, I didn’t go for rice. I went for potato again! LOL!!! It looked spicy but not spicy. Not too bad. While the other one was fish. Luckily I didn’t go for that. My parents said that it’s not nice hahaha!
Anyway, we’re lucky to get a proper in-flight meal on this flight. Phew… Imagine you paid for full service and got snack items for your meal. Surely won’t be happy with that. Even though the in-flight meal wasn’t the tastiest, it’s still part of what we paid for. Hopefully, the fiasco will be over soon. Good thing I won’t be flying MH anytime soon.
