Air Malaysia have announced that no passengers under the age of 12 will be permitted on the upper deck of their A380 aircraft. The economy section of the lower decks of their A380 aircraft will be child-friendly. (There are 8 toilets available to families.)
This follows on their previous announcement some months back that no children will be permitted in first class.
The upper deck on the A380 has 66 seats in business class and 70 economy seats. So passengers who can’t afford first-class will now also have a peaceful option available to them, while families can sit together on the lower deck, but only in economy.
This service is currently limited to the Kuala Lumpur/ London route. The rule will also apply to the Kuala Lumpur / Sydney route from September 2012.
