Flight was delayed twice.
Pros: "Landing 20 minutes ahead schedule."
Cons: "Nothing much to improve as it only 50 minutes flight"
Pros: "No and No! Seat was cramped. Crew was ok"
Cons: "If they weren’t always on the PA. I was trying to read and someone was always talking"
Cons: "If seats could recline or have a pillow maybe."
Cons: "The AC created so much smoke that I couldn’t see the stewardess during the safety instructions"
Cons: "Would be nice to have entertainment"
Pros: "Our seats were comfortable and the landing was smooth"
Cons: "All food and drink had to be paid for -even water!"
Cons: "Very great crew, thank you AirAsia"
Pros: "Very understanding and helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Such a poor on time record"
Cons: "Luggage check-in weighs luggage 22 kilos more than its actual weight and I was asked to pay almost RM650 ~ ($170), when I was asked to recheck they had to pull my luggage back and that took almost 40 minutes to later know that they made a huge mistake! 20 minutes to the boarding time I got confirmation that my luggage weights are correct and given a boarding pass to gate P11. walked to gate P11 and saw no one there, and there were no signs of what was happening, I checked Kayak app then I noticed that they changed the gate to L10 which is a totally different building ( 16 minutes before gate closure ), I had to run the whole airport to go to gate L10. not to mention that flight was delayed by a good 1 hour!"
Cons: "I was sold an empty Marshall 111 box in a sealed Duty Free bag or 136 USD. COMPLAINED WHEN DISCOVER AT HOME THAT NIGHT. SINCE THEN GIVEN THE RUN AROUND"
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped up."
Pros: "I will say that the AirAsia crews do save the day. This is my first time flying AirAsia on a 3 leg trip (currently on leg 2) and the crew members have been absolutely awesome and stellar."
Cons: "I’m just a BIG guy so space is my overall complaint. But as my first experience with AirAsia, it has not been a great one. First my initial flight kept being delayed and delayed until it was actually canceled. Then my second leg of my vacation trip, again, delayed and they just had us standing in line waiting to board our flight. Again I give praise to the wonderful crew members for the stellar and comforting service. They truly are the reason I have not given up on AirAsia just yet. Now I do have one leg left, my tip home...I’m hoping that this one will be the overall best experience for my AirAsia. I’m praying for an on time departure, and another wonderful staff and just a tiny bit more leg space. Wish me luck"
Cons: "No room for legs Flight was delayed without any information at the gate My wife was at a differtn row even if there was a free seat next to me. I had to pay to next to her during check-in."
Pros: "The customer service representatives were very cordial"
Cons: "My bag was sent to Kuala Lumpur for no reason. I checked in with plenty of time and when I arrived in Singapore I was advised that not only could they not call to Panang to inquire about my bag -it had to be arranged through email but also bags aren’t destination scanned! I work for United airlines and it seems primitive not to know where a bag is in today’s day and age. The following day, knowing that I was departing back to the United States miraculously my bag showed up at the airport the same time as my minimum required check in time."
Pros: "Airport crew was friendly and provided umbrellas to everyone as they boarded plane. Managed brief rain-related departure delay well. Nice in flight travel magazine."
Cons: "Bag fees were high. I misunderstood when booking as website said on bag (meaning "cabin bag"/"carry on"), so not only did I have to pay the standard luggage cost for my one check in bag but also a same-day late fee, making it twice as expensive."
Pros: "Fares. Schedules. Destinations. More than you might expect for a low cost airline."
Cons: "I got what I paid for."
Pros: "Delayed in departures for 30 mins but arrived only by 5 mins late"
Cons: "In the Ramadan month, on board the plan just when time for breaking fast, a small glass of plain water to be given free for passengers on the flight at that time would be a thoughtful gesture"
Pros: "Price. Number of flights."
Cons: "The 7kg hardline AFTER doing the document check nearly caused me to miss my flight thus potentially missing a connection. If AsiAsia are going to keep to this 7kg hardline they really need to do it across all airports and do it during the document check so the number of queues costumers are subjected to are minimized. I did purchase extra weight when purchasing the ticket however that weight MUST be in checked bags only. No margin here for discussion. Perhaps HotSeat passengers are less scrutinized??? This all may be just some transitional pains here and other airlines may follow the same model but in my 200+ flights on Nok Air this has NEVER happened. In fact, they (Nok) have NEVER weighed my carry on bag. Such a shame as the rest of the flight experience was above average. This hardline approach will be an issue if they continue until they beat their customers into taking or leaving it in my opinion. First AirAsia flight for me so the vets reading this will be smiling quietly to themselves ;-)"
Pros: "Captain address on delayed update and get free meal"
Cons: "Initialy no staff at gate to update the delay. Passenger left wondering. Luckly received alert from Kayak.com on the delay. Received sms at 9.05pm after 1 hour delay from Airasia."
Cons: "They changed the time without announcing anyone. Each day the flight is at a different time."
Pros: "Overall in flight experience quite good."
Cons: "Flight Delayed twice for boarding to and come BKK. Abit disappointed for not time. As.it ruined my initial planning and wasted so valuable time to visit new exploring place in bkk."
Pros: "On time (early on the return leg). Interesting usage of onboard wifi to deliver inflight entertainment. The choices of the channels was mediocre. Nevertheless, a good start."
Cons: "Same food (on return leg) with no other choices choice with the value pack add-on. Pasta was overcooked."
Pros: "convenient times"
Cons: "your machines i hate that you now employ less humans and more machines. no one wants to fly anywhere without humans in control"
Pros: "Good landing despite bad turbulence."
Pros: "Good: cheap and on time. Bad: aways slow check-in and uncomfortable seating. Everything a budget airline should be."
Pros: "I was traveling without access to WiFi and was unable to add my checked bags until the morning them the web site wouldn't let me add the bags. I got to the airport and the airline charged me $300 in fees for my two bags. Highway robbery. I'll never fly Air Asia again."
Cons: "Usurious fees for checked bags and the flights are always late to boot."
Pros: "All except boarding"
Cons: "Flyers cutting que prior to boarding without intervention from air crew staffs."
Pros: "Almost on all regional flghts i had to pay as much for my luggage as for my ticket."
Cons: "Luggage scheme."
Cons: "Late flight, not enough announcements"
Pros: "Staff was very attentive and well trained! Arrived without any delays. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Being updated of the status of flight periodically"
Cons: "Airport was crowded. As many other flights were delayed too."
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Check in staff was trying to ensure me that hoping the cabin crew can help me changed seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. What's worst my 5 years old daughter have to be seperated from me. And instead of them asking the passengers to swap they'd expect me to solve their stuffed up. Not very impressed at all"
Cons: "More than 3h late, no information, gate close (we had to wait in the corridor), nothing to drink during the flight. And I had to pay 80RM just to travel with my umbrella,"
Pros: "On time.. .short flight"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The cabin crews were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Both flights that I boarded got delayed but no assurance or informed by staffs on what time it might take to arrived."

Pros: "quick check-in and no-nonsense."
Cons: "They were fine."
Pros: "Good because of direct flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "wifi. while boarding staff try to sort us with seats numbers, good, but the procedure should be improved. friendly staff."
Cons: "boarding was delayed till last minutes before takeoff. no meal included in ticket (ok, it's a lowcoster)."
Cons: "No family priority boarding."
Cons: "It was one hour late"
Pros: "New aircraft A320-200 NEO"
Cons: "Flight delay without information. Delay almost 1:45hrs."
Cons: "I was charged over $200 for luggage overweight because I did not purchase it at time of booking. That's disgraceful. They should make it clear for people outside Asia who are not familiar with their policies what they should do to avoid these charges Jackie"
Pros: "Just for budget flights"
Cons: "Seats, boarding, delays"
Pros: "Crew did not do much"
Cons: "More service. Free water"
Cons: "Better customer service, very rude ground and in flight staff"
Cons: "Easy quick flight. Excellent boarding and flight also."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, AFTER WE BOARDED, for 2 hours. No attempt was made to provide food or s reasonable explanation."
Pros: "Seats were not comfortable nor were they worth any upgrades offered flight is cheap if only flying with carry on, not fit for a full vacation. All accessories will be charged. It is the spirit airline of Asia."
Pros: "Crew are polite"
Cons: "No more delayed"
Pros: "Seat was good .. the flight was not full"
Pros: "Smooth flight no food or entertainment and did not take any food for a short flight"
Cons: "Air Asia is grossly understaffed at Johor Bahru and rely on Self Check-in kiosks that few of the passengers understand. It’s chaos with horrendously long waits. The international waiting area post-security is tiny with zero dining options. Third world all the way, a distinct contrast to the city, which is great."
Pros: "Flight attendants are well dressed and friendly"
Cons: "My friend and I bought Luang Prabang to Siem Reap tickets with a change in Bangkok. We had both printed our boarding passes and had only carryon bags. They wouldn’t check us in thru to Siem Reap when we were in Luang Prabang, so when we tried to go through transit in Bangkok, the Air Asia agents sent us back to enter Thailand. We had to go through passport control, go up to arrivals and wait in the huge, chaotic lines ( why does AA always have chaotic limes?) and check in again. We then had to go back through immigration and security inspections. Even the immigration and exit officials were questioning why we didn’t go in transit! Took us two hours and lots of extra walking. I only fly Air Asia when I have to, and always think they will have gotten better, but they never do."
Cons: "The ticket agent didn’t book us all the way through to Siem Reap."
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean airplane."
Cons: "Very small seat in upgrade area. DO NOT BUY SIM CARD ON AIRPLANE. Buy it when you exit. They rip you off on flight and it’s not connected."
Pros: "The r at of all of our interactions in Cambodia have been delightful"
Cons: "The checking was rude confusing unpleasant. It’s as if they want d to humiliate us. Completely unnecessarily horrible."
Pros: "They were nice to let me on when I was hurrying through security"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "No complementary foods, snacks or drinks offered. No problem since a short flight."
Pros: "We arrived"
Cons: "Started with booking, a package includes seats but the seats included we're all full,of i.e. need to pay more again.but100 Dollar for credit card booking? They are crazy! Check-infamily with just computers is terrible, didn't worked properly. Included food in package but can't choose, both legs the same food. Baggage damaged. Long walk in DMK to transfer, inefficient. Overall just a shitty experience!"
Pros: "Very delayed first segment. Fortunately the second segment was more delayed! No announcements about the delays."
Cons: "My knees were touching the seat ahead of me although the seat was upright. Any recline would have been unbearable & painful."
Pros: "Good, orderly boarding procedure. Friendly and efficient air stewards and stewardess."
Cons: "needs more check in kiosks at PEN airport, aircraft seats quite narrow and not much leg room"
Pros: "Price and smooth flight"
Cons: "Usually not on time - frustrating."
Pros: "On time, comfortable and inexpensive. Terrific value"
Cons: "Just know that you have to preorder and pay for any drinks or meal."
Pros: "Really a pleasant flight experience! The cabin crews are delightful!"
Cons: "The Air Asia Penang self baggage drop was chaotic and utterly disorganized. Despite the long line, travelers with closer flight departures were given the priority to cut queue."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The cabin pressure and plane temperature was uncomfortable, plus the food options for sale were all so unhealthy. Its paid so there is no reason there shouldn't be healthier options."
Cons: "We used flightnetwork through kayak. During purchase there was nothing saying check in bags weren't included. It's an international flight! After reading the confirmation email also saw nothing about it, only some ambiguous message about checking with the airline. THIS IS IMPORTANT! WHY WOULD YOU NOT MENTION IT AT SOME POINT. If I need to go to the airline to "check" that YOU didn't forget to tell me something then what the hell is the point of using your service?! I had to pay 144 dollars, more than a single ticket!"
Pros: "We paid extra for the quit zone seats and we ended up having having the row to ourselves. Unlike the other reviews I am seeing we were not charged an excess baggage fee and were over by five kilos. The seats were fairly comfortable but again we had the whole row to ourselves."
Cons: "No food or drink offered at all. Not even water...."
Pros: "I had no real issues with this flight. I had just enough room, overhead bins were bigger than expected so no issues there."
Cons: "You'll be charged for anything that you buy on the plane so try to come prepared with water and snacks to save a bit of money."
Pros: "Crew was okay"
Cons: "the plane was dirty and hot and arrived at airport late"
Pros: "New planes. Efficient boarding process"
Cons: "We checked only 1 standard bag per persona and had to pay $72USD per bag at check in!!! And everything else cost money as well -- even water in the plane. And a person over 6' should buy extra leg room as the seats are cramped."
Pros: "plane was clean"
Cons: "Crew did not communicate anything about unexpected wait times. Flight was hot and uncomfortable"
Cons: "They did not tell me to select a checked bag beforehand and charged an excessive amount for one piece of checked luggage."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time, professional staff. Can get cheap food ahead of time, but only recommended if you won't have time to eat otherwise because the food isn't great."
Cons: "No individual seat entertainment, less legroom than other carriers"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was charged more than $100 for 1 check in bag, 15 kg for international flight from Cambodia to Thailand. If my bag were over 15 kg but less than 20 kg then price would be 50-60% higher. I did not even ask how much I would pay if my single check in bag were over 20 kg. Obviously, if you have any check in bag you pay at least a double price for your flight. Leg space is designed for slim and trim Asians, all others who don't fit this description have problems."
Cons: "Cramped space and extra charges for checked luggage."
Pros: "The crew was efficient for getting everyone settle and take off in no time!"
Cons: "Need to change the carry on bag to 15 kg! 7 kg is not efficient!!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "The website is not so user-friendly with a lot of bugs. I have tried to book an extra luggage via the website but it was impossible. But at the airport i have paid the extra luggage easily (18$ for 20kg) Siem Riep to Bangkok."
Pros: "Great little airport in siem reap and a nice quick flight to Bangkok."
Pros: "Fairly comfortable seats and enough room for an airline that isn't too pricey. I received food even on my short flights."
Pros: "Wish the on-board staff were also on American and European carriers"
Cons: "They charged me some $35 for one suitcase, i.e. double fee b/c I did not check it in via Internet! They do not realize that in certain countries Internet signal can be weak. I tried several times to access their site but to no avail. They should also have allowed me to check in my luggage for return trip when I checked in the first time."
Pros: "short and sweet"
Cons: "charge for checked bags"
Pros: "Boarding started early on take off was 10 min befor schedule"
Cons: "During booking pay attention to additional charges of check in baggage. Watch for unexpected currency change from USD to EUR"
Pros: "Quick, easy boarding, nice aircraft, capable and attentive crew."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment, no drinks, no food. Excessively charged (nearly twice the original ticket cost) a change to earlier flight."
Pros: "They were able to get us on to the plane even though we were extremely late. The Customer Service Rep that helped us with our bags in Krabi was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "An exorbitant amount for bags and our luggage didn't even make it on the the flight."
Pros: "Great fare."
Cons: "A woman checked us in at DMK, flying to Phuket. She was poor at customer service and very unfriendly. I asked to borrow a scissor to cut a tie strap so that I can adjust the weight of my bags. Knowing it's a waste of her time she hid the scissor underneath a piece of paper and answered me that she didn't have one. I pointed it to her, she claimed that it wasn't hers. Long story short, I demanded another agent for help."
Pros: "Nice flights with AirAsia. they were on time for the most part and comfortable as you can get for a bargain flight."
Cons: "No movies or music. Just sit and read magazines."
Cons: "I tried paying for checked baggage while checking in online, but the website would always ignore my checked baggage selections no matter which option I select - it just wouldn't add the checked baggage payment to the checkout. Then, when I was dropping off baggage I was charged $72 per small bag!!! This is offensive and ridiculous to charge $72 per 10Kg bag when their website isn't even allowing to prepay at a lower rate. This may have been OK if this was a low-coster with $50 flights, but this was a $500 ticket and I did not expect to pay another $144 for checking in bags. To make matters worse, we had 3 small bags and intended to check all 3 in, now we did not want to pay $216, so we took one of the bags with us and of course had to part with the christmas presents that we wrapped for each other at the security line. We also paid for "hot seat" - this is yet another rip off. Hot seat does not add extra legroom, no extra comfort, just an earlier boarding time, so that you can spend more time in the stuffy cabin. Food and entertainment was not even present on the flight. You had to pre-purchase food to get any and none was sold on the flight, the didn't even offer a glass of water, not even for a fee."
