Err... you are comparing a FSC with a LCC :sweat:
On that basis of comparison, MH is better.

I have not taken any of these airlines.

I recall that Malaysia Airlines won some international airline award for being best in cabin service some years back. Then again Garuda Airlines also won the “The World’s Best Economy Class” By Skytrax at 2013 Paris Airshow.

If I am not wrong Malaysia Airlines has not turned a net profitable financial quarter for a while and has been engaging in cost cutting measure trying to turn a profit

No worries, but I'm curious why are you comparing those 2. They have very little overlap in routes from SIN (other than SIN-KUL) that would necessitate you to choose one over the other.

Hv taken Malaysia Airlines many yrs ago,service so-so,food was good. I still recall the landing was scary...very sudden,not so smooth..don't know how to describe..

so far,i've taken Qantas,BA,Cathay Pacific,Jetstar,Air NZ,SIA. SIA still the best,in terms of svr n comfort of seats.

Has anyone tried Emirates b4?

I've tried Emirates before. Their service is good comparable to SQ or even better. Their food especially kids meal is good comes with many goodies and toys for the kids.

But I find SQ entertainment is better, SQ has a wide selection of new shows while Emirates limited.

my sis/bro in law families took Emirates recently, they are not happy with the entertainment too.
They still prefer SQ even though price is slightly higher.

Ultimately, service can be a hit or a miss depending on the person serving you (I wish you good luck if you kenna one who's having a bad hair day). Similarly, landing can be smooth or rough depending on the pilots of the plane (and if you get a bad one... :pray: ).
