Please proceed to gate G10

I’m writing this at the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We’re on our stopover from Melbourne to London with Malaysian Airlines. What a trip!! The kettle class in Malaysian is not bad. Spacious (!!!), acceptable food, movies on demand and very friendly staff. Noise-cancelling headphones are worth every penny if you’re on a trip like this. I’ve never slept so well on any flight before! They block a lot of the engine noise (or aircon and mumbling at the airport) and some of the annoying other noises as well. You don’t get out of a long flight feeling deaf and tired and you don’t have to turn up the entertainment system too much. But here’s one of the main problems with this:

The airline presets the announcement volume and while it can be adjusted separately, the lowest setting is still blowing your ears off! A solution could be some sort of volume control/attenuator in order to set the volume independently from the planes entertainment system.

It’s on my wishlist for the next flight. But even without that, it’s something you can live without because watching movies is less important if you can just relax and sleep or read. I didn’t finish a single movie on this 8 hour trip!

Anyway… The airport in KL is getting a bit annoying. Nonstop announcements!!! There’s no 5 second break between them. Seriously!?!

over and out… gotta check which gate we have to go to for our nice 14 hour hop to england

I've always been interested in all kinds of art because I felt the need to express myself in many different ways. I paint, draw, create 3D models, motion graphics & designs of all sorts, play guitar, love photography and whatever else is in between... I was born in Hungary and lived in Hungary, Germany, Australia and the UK for a number of years. I speak German, English and a little Hungarian (I'm working on improving that one again!).
