I bought two tickets from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei for me and my wife a few weeks ago. How cheap is the fare let’s see.
The MH Basic from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei is RM 646 per person one way. I chose the cheapest and I bought two tickets.
I spent RM 1,395.90 for one return economy tickets for Malaysia Airlines Kuala Lumpur to Taipei. This is for one Economy Class Ticket, 30kg luggage, meals on board, in flight entertainment and drinks unlimited with the best cabin crew in the world.
What if I purchase a return Business Class ticket from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei?
The cheapest Malaysia Airlines Business Class Return Ticket from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei is RM 2,995.90 per person. Thus, the Business Class ticket is slightly more than double than the Economy Class Ticket of RM 1395.50. Please take note you get bigger service, awesome food and 40kg luggage allowance for Business Class.
However, I purchased the Economy Class Tickets for two.
Immediately after purchasing the two air tickets, I received an email from Malaysia Airlines about MHUpgrade. I didn’t look at the email until the second email came and it caught my attention. I asked around and I realized that many of my friends and even my sister used MHUpgrade. My friend had a 90% success rate even bidding on the lowest fare and my sister got her family flying on Business Class bidding on the lowest fare. How interesting!
Thus, I click the Upgrade Now button and check out how cheap is MHUpgrade.
Bidding with MHUpgrade
When I click the MHUpgrade button, it landed on this page and there is bidding leveller. I can bid from the lowest of RM 314 to RM 734 for one way from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei to upgrade to Business Class.
Of course I bid on the lowest at RM 314 from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei for two.
So I continue to another page to review my final bidding.
In total, I have to pay extra RM 1260 to bid for two return Business Class Tickets from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei.
To officially bid the price, you have to key in your contact and your billing information (credit card) and submit offer. You will be charged RM 1 for verification. You know the drill here, you will receive the password from your credit card company to verify the transaction.
After the complete verification of the credit card payment, you will receive this Thank You note on your email.
Please take note that Malaysia Airlines will decided on the bidding rate 48 hours prior of the departure time so I have to wait until I receive an official email whether my bid goes through or not.
At this time, you still can edit or cancel your MHUpgrade bidding 72 hours prior of the departure time so you still have time to decide whether to cancel or upbidding the fare.
