Bus smelled cigarette. Driver lighted up cigarette in the last few km to Melaka Sentral. Although he exhaled out through the window. It didn’t help. It also seemed like he took a few puffs off e-cigarette.

Comfy ride and good driver. Arrived/departed KLIA ½ hour late. No signage to indicate which platform to wait at (unlike at Melaka Sentral). Advertises itself as a Massage bus, but doesn’t work.

Everything went smoothly, easy to find the gates at the KL Bus Station. Departured some minutes later than scheduled but passengers were kept informed. Direct trip to Melaka, no stop for toilet or snacks. AC level ok, we had our jumpers on. Bus clean and comfy, enough space for longer legs too.
