With the new A380 planes and daily convenient connections from major Asian cities to Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysia Airlines route from Asia to Paris becomes a very viable option for travelers from our part of the world.
Business class has spacious flat beds. And, of course, there's the famous hospitality of Malaysia Airlines on-board, all the way to Europe.
FROM PARIS ON MALAYSIA AIRLINES
This is what Travelife GM Gel Bayona emailed from Paris, living a never-endingly eventful Travelife:
"I recently rode the inaugural flight of Malaysia Airlines to Paris on the brand-new A380 jet. This A380 aircraft will serve the Kuala Lumpur - Paris - Kuala Lumpur route.
What a way to start 2013, with an invitation from Malaysia Airlines to ride the first flight to Paris. Travelife Magazine was the only media invited from the Philippines.
Of course, I was very happy when our publisher assigned me to this very special trip.
VIPs ON THE FLIGHT TO PARIS
Malaysia Airlines just became the 8th airline in the world to fly the world’s largest and most eco-efficient airliner.
The inaugural flight from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and was graced by Malaysia Airlines Airlines’ Group Chief Executive Officer Ahmad Jauhari Yahya and the French Ambassador to Malaysia.
The huge Airbus A380 plane, with 494 seats, takes off daily for the French capital.
The A380 has a spacious, quiet cabin -- so the smooth ride will almost certainly make the A380 a firm favourite with passengers.

What really kept me awake, however, was the wide array of good food.
The Malaysian menu selections comprise, among others, all-time favourites like nasi lemak, assam pedas fish, beef korma, chicken curry kapitan, wok-fried egg noodles, ayam kechap, mutton curry and stir-fried egg noodles with seared prawns.
TIME FLIES WHEN YOU'RE HAVING FUN.
AND THEN YOU'RE IN PARIS.
These were just some of the selections.
And with all of this, I did not even notice the 13-hour flight. The next thing I knew I was in the City of Lights.
CITY OF LOVE
Paris is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. I was truly amazed and I immediately fell in love with the culture and the atmosphere, as well as with the famous Eiffel Tower.
An added bonus was visiting Disneyland Paris and experiencing the European version of Disneyland.
A ONE WORLD ALLIANCE MEMBER
Malaysia Airlines is now also a full member of the Oneworld alliance, becoming the second carrier in the alliance to operate the A380. Its membership will expand oneworld's global coverage to some 840 destinations in 156 countries.
Malaysia Airlines also offers MAS holiday packages that are truly reasonable and enjoyable.
