Awaiting boarding at the F1RSTParty waiting lounge was almost as eventful as the in-flight ballroom.

Stepping out into the 9th floor of W Kuala Lumpur, guests were ushered to the check-in counter. Here, they presented their FirstClasse Airlines boarding passes and discovered their respective destinations – international airport codes marking their tables at dinner.

From then on, photo opportunities were abound. Passengers of FC001 arrived to the lounge to find the sponsor wall and quirky wall, where photographers captured the gorgeous dresses, sharp suits, and smiling faces, before guests were whisked away by friends. Canapés were served throughout the hour alongside Martell cocktailsThe Glenlivet whisky, and G.H. Mumm champagne from our dear friends at Pernod-Ricard Malaysia. At the opposite side of the lounge, all eyes were set on new timepieces from the latest Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris collection.

Surprise guest, singer Loren Allred was also present with warm smiles and welcome greetings VIP guests, including the Habib family and DeCorte senior representatives.
