New wines and champagne and more comfortable beds have been announced by Malaysia Airlines. 

Malaysia Airlines has revealed its new selection of champagne and fine wines to be served on its Airbus A380 flights between Kuala Lumpur and London. 

A spokesperson says the new wine and champagne range, which will be served in business class and first class, has been chosen to counteract the impact of a pressurised cabin on passengers' tastebuds.

In business, a Champagne Duval Leroy “Fleur du Champagne” Premier Cru NV will be served as well as red and white wines from France, Australia, Argentina and New Zealand. 

First-class passengers can choose from Champagne Joseph Perrier Cuvee Josephine 2004, reds including Chateau Frombrauge 2012, AOC St-Emilion Grand Cru Classes, Bordeaux, three white wines and a French dessert wine. 

The selection complements Malaysia Airlines' fine dining Chef-on-Call menu of 25 dishes ranging from Malaysian favourites and chef’s recommendations to healthy and light meals.

Business-class passengers on the airline's new Airbus A330 flights from Australia will now enjoy seats with a big 43-inch pitch which converts into a fully flat 76-inch bed.
