Trawling through the available fares Spain appears to have the lowest at around €1849 (before discount) from Madrid/Barcelona to Kuala Lumpur, followed closely by Italy and The Netherlands.
Don't forget you can get 10% discount if you pay with an American Express. You need to use this link in order to activate the discount, and there is also this article which explains how the discount works.
As of writing the fares had not been loaded, since the discount applies to the base fare (non-tax component) and with taxes at around €430 on the Spanish fares, you should expect a discount of about €140 bringing the final price per person to approximately €1710. Italy tends to have amongst the lowest taxes in the EU so the saving potential there is slightly higher although that is offset slightly by the higher base fares.
