Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The selection was rather dated as I travel very frequently I noticed it. Otherwise it would probably be fine for most"
Cons: "Boarding on time so I didn’t have to loose the connection flight and had to stay at a hotel an hour away from kuala lumpur to barely sleep to catch a plane to auckland next day that arrives late so i cant take the ferry home."
Pros: "First time on Malaysian. At least we didn’t disappear. All was okay except for the meal on the flight to Saigon. I’m not one to complain about airline food but the “meal” served was execrable, possibly the worst in 65 years of flying. And no alcohol on an international flight was niggardly in my estimation.. The flight from Penang to KL they had the cheek to serve a tiny cup of fake orange juice. I will avoid Malaysian in the future."
Cons: "Please see what above."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The pilot landed the plane smoothly. Although had a delayed departure from KUL, we arrived in Sydney earlier than expected."
Cons: "very delayed flight in addition slow flying what should have taken 52 minutes ended 1 hour 20 min to add to that poor cabin crew management of Business Class disembarking excruciating slowly added another delay of 20 minutes!"

Cons: "Food could be improved especially for vegetarians"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, however I had a very serious problem upon checking in as I DISCOVERED AM NOT ALLOWED A SINGLE KG OF LUGGAGE.THE AIRLINE ASKED ME TO INFORM THE AGENT WHO DID NOT MAKE IT CLEAR WHEN I WAS BUYING THE TICKET.THAT HAS COST ME A LOT OF ANXIETY AND BIG$$"

Pros: "crew provided attentive and excellent service. Good food and beverage."

Cons: "The pre boarding security was a mess and poorly managed in Kuala Lumpur."
Pros: "Overall is great"
Cons: "Similarly delayed departure and arrived at HongKong over 11/2 hour later- poor service!"
Cons: "Seat back didn’t stay upright so it was uncomfortable when I wasn’t trying to sleep."
Cons: "This is the second time - once on the way to Kuala Lumpur and on the way back that we boarded late and thus missed my connecting flight. Sadly Cathay and Malaysia air (which was the airline Cathay used for the return leg of this trip refused to help and put me on an earlier flight forcing me to stay an extra 6 hrs at the airport while being sick."
Cons: "Crews were only thinking of completing their tasks. I had been standing for 10 minutes in order to have the crews gave way. They were cleaning post lunch. I was told to wait till they were done."
Pros: "Retested additional blankets and got them."
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry to provide drinks and remove trays; ttrays were no hot drinks provided; overall, the crew seemed cold and not approachable."
Pros: "Can’t find anything good."
Cons: "The airline is protected by the government. Hence there is no motivation for them to improve. This airline is my last choice. My biggest dissatisfaction is the hospitality shown by the crew.. not sincere and in some cases rude... is this the MH - MALAYSIAN Hospitality that they keep advertising? Very disappointing.."
Cons: "Economy class seats are getting tighter and smaller. When person in front reclines the seat you do not have much moving space left"
Pros: "Overall all was good, except the flight been late."
Cons: "The flight was 40 mins late and because of that, I missed my connection from Hong Kong to San Francisco. Your company then offered me and my friend a hotel stay and transportation to and from the hotel., which was good. I appreciated your company taking care of us. However, it is really bothersome to miss an international connection to go home after a long trip."
Pros: "Friendly & attentive crew"
Cons: "Departure delay (10 minutes)"
Pros: "The boarding is a bit mess up as it was delayed by Malindo Air which share the same gate, I wonder Malaysia Airport authorities has run out of resources why cramp 2 airlines in same gate departing 30 minutes apart, crew is OK seats is comfortable but landing is quite uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding and landing"
Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."
Cons: "Why did the entertainment get shut off more than 30 minutes before landing?"
Pros: "We arrived at the counter 1:50 before scheduled departure. The queue took 55 minutes for us to reach the counter. We were told then we should have rushed the counter to clear the 1 hour hurdle. There was no approach by staff to warn the waiting queue to do this. We were given boarding passes and told to try our luck taking the luggage through security and try gate baggage check. We made the plane 20 minutes before scheduled departure"
Cons: "Very old plane equipment Short seat pitch limits economy class passenger comfort"
Cons: "My checked bag did not arrive at my work city of Singapore. It took 2 days to be brought to my hotel despite my being told they would be on the next flight. I arrived back in Denpasar yesterday and, again, my bags are lost and I again I was told they would be on the next flight. I still do not have my bag. Seems to be a pattern with Malaysian Airways and I will avoid them in the future, Also, I left my Ipad plugged in at the Premier Lounge in Denpasar and realized it as I was boarding the plane. The Malaysian Air boarding staff got on radios and appeared to try to help by telling them to put aside for pick up upon my return. Yesterday, The Premiere lounge said they did not have it despite my name, email and phone number being written on the Ipad. Between Malaysian Air and the Lounge and their lack of concern and professionalism it was not a good trip. As One World Emerald member, I steer a lot of business towards these One World Airlines. I expect better treatment."
Cons: "Bags didn't arrive at the destination"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hours resulting in us missing our connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur to China and then Los Angeles . Malaysia airlines did not apologize or help us with rebooking our flights or offering hotel accommodation. They just left a family of five with no flight, stuck in Malaysia with no options of getting home. . Flight crew had very hard bumpy landing on both legs of flight and maybe they need to go review landing protocol so that we don't have to have a hard rough landing"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad landing,"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"
Pros: "1) Not to squashy and more spacious than I thought. 2) The interior of aircraft seemed reasonably modern and up-to-date rather than old and miserable with stained seats and carpets. 3) the in-flight entertainment was better than I thought"
Cons: "I tried the seafood pasta and it was horrible!"
Pros: "Free beer and wine. Good inflight entertainment. Food ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and not enough leg room for someone 6'02". They ran out of the chicken meal and I was stuck with the fish which wasn't that great."
Pros: "Easy to get my boarding pass at the Changi airport. Seating was nice. Not many passengers in this flight."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty."
Pros: "Good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was only one choice - fish (not tasty)."
Pros: "I actually thought the seats were pretty comfy. And they have in flight entertainment, no need to download an app or anything."
Cons: "Wish I had known there would be a meal on the short flight. I usually request a vegetarian meal so I couldn't do it this time."
Cons: "I never got to take the flight. Tried to cancel multiple times with VAYAMA prior to 31 March, but they never responded."
Pros: "my family and I flew one way Singapore to London (15 hours 1 hour stopover in KL) for $1600 (all 4) Singapore Airlines or BA were $1800 per person. they are nicer airlines but not $5600 better. Airbus A380 was a bit tired but service was good. pretty painless trip all in all"
Cons: "Fight was delayed half an hour due to waiting for a few connecting flight passengers. This is ridiculous as the airline is making the gain at the expense of other passengers' priceless time."
Pros: "Short trip 50 mins"
Cons: "Had a transit flight through KL from Colombo to Bali. The luggage was not with me and my friend along with about 7-10 others post arrival in Bali. We received the luggage after losing almost one day eating into our holiday. Minor compensation was given but the inconvenience was far more! This is not the KL to colombo flight but thought i will write it in here as I got this through Kayak"
Cons: "Lost baggage on direct flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed for more than one hour. Check in counters not enough resulting in long queue."
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Not on time"
Cons: "No delays"
Pros: "Air Crew was polite. Ground crew was the slowest and most inefficient group of people I've witnessed. There'd be 3 people working, but 2 of them would be talking to each other, letting the queues build up."
Cons: "Ground experience was pretty terrible at the airport. Most likely I'd avoid flying through here again."
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, good crew, early landing."
Cons: "15 minutes stuck on the bus at disembarkation sucked."
Pros: "The leg room"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "The crew were super patient (a must when dealing with the quality of passengers from Trichy who were lacking in manners and etiquette)."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. The majority of passengers seem to not be used to the normal manners and etiquette of queuing and it was chaotic with pushing. Some discipline and order needs to be enforced by ground crew (and this will no doubt make the cabin crews' lives easier)."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Enjoyed buying extended leg room"
Cons: "Water should be a standard on a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Seats are very tight if you are over 5’6"
Pros: "The flight was smooth despite bouts of turbulence. The crew ensured everyone was strapped in and the pilot made a prior announcement before flight take-off. Most Pilots don’t."
Cons: "The check-in process took extremely Long as there were only two counters open. The boarding process was a joke. Despite the announcement to board by rows, there was no enforcement whatsoever and it was free for all."
Cons: "Flight with Scoot are not very well organized. for as large a fleet and number of flight locally should be better. no onboard entertainment nor refreshments. Staff not very personable either."
Pros: "Nothing. We had to sit on the runway for an 1 hour 40 mins. Staff didn’t even give away water, you had to purchase it... outrageous"
Pros: "GREAT CREW AS ALWAYS THE SEAT WAS COMFORTABLE AS ALWAYS."
Cons: "FOOD WAS ORDINARY NOT WHAT I ORDERED, MY NEIGHBOR IN THE CHAIR OPPOSITE HAD WHAT I WANTED AND IT LOOKED DELICIOUS"
Pros: "Not sure if I have much trust in the crew. Most of the female crew would walk past passengers who had their seats reclined or in the toilets and other situations and wouldn’t notice (during take off and landing) and the guy would come past later and do her job for them. Ground staff in Bangkok"
Pros: "The food was good. The service very good. Check in was so fast."
Cons: "Internet charge was very expensive and electrical outlet could not hold my charger. It kept falling out"
Cons: "Allow us to upgrade class"
Cons: "Music or movie will be good."
Pros: "Extremely rude."
Cons: "I got sick on the flight from some food poisoning and the crew acted put out when I asked for some water."
Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to board the plane because my passport only had five months left on it but you still let me book the flight and I was not refunded"
Cons: "You can choose your seat but when you pay you can choose a seat and I don’t like this"
Pros: "There is nothing to say this is a no frills airline and that is what you get. Departure was on time and arrival was also on time. Food on any airline isn’t good at least on airline i fly. The important thing is getting there safely and this airline company does that."
Pros: "Overall okay. Food was not in our list because the flight is about one and a half hour. No entertainment as it was a short one and we departed earlier than the estimated time."
Pros: "Everything worked"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "No offer to book my seat assignment during the booking process. A kiosk check-in would be a nice addition."
Pros: "The Staff were friendly and efficient, considering the flight time being very short. The Flight Crew got us to our destination 10 mins ahead of schedule, considering also that we were 15 mins behind sitting on the runway for take off, which in effect meant they made up 25 mins. Fantastic job. The Aircraft was clean and well maintained. The seats were comfortable in economy for me, but unfortunately my Husband being a larger tall man was cramped and didn’t have a lot of room to move."
Cons: "As the flight was very short the choice of food was limited and the selection was not good, as the choice I required ran out at the first two rows, which were not occupied by many passengers at all. A very light passenger load. The pricing was a little high for the snacks and tiny bottles of water."
Cons: "Seats we given did not recline .as they were just in front of emergency exit . The extra leg room seats were empty, but would have to pay extra to sit on them"
Pros: "boarding is thru gate and not tarmac"
Cons: "food are expensive."
Pros: "Nice aircraft, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "reclining seats only in business class, not lay flat. pay for everything except the bathroom"
Cons: "Flight crew’s attitude. The fact that there was no overhead space and the crew didn’t Check additional bags. Had to stove the bags u def the seat and there was no room to stretch my legs. The flight crew had the most pathetic attitude and was rude beyond imagination."
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "No TV on plane"
Cons: "We were given just one very small water about 150ml and told we have to pay if we need more water. Restriction on providing drinking water in Business class seems unfair. Please reconsider"
Pros: "i did not see any entertainment."
Cons: "The process to check and pay for a bag at the airport was ridiculous. We waited in line to check the bag, found out that since we hadn't paid for it ahead of time, we could get the bag checked but would need to go stand in a new line to pay for it and could not have the bag tag until this was done. Then the new line only had one agent working all of the people who needed to pay for their bags. When we got to the front, we were asked to pay the bag fee with a credit card and the processing fee in cash. Since we were only connecting in Singapore, of course we did not have cash. She could not process the charge, walked us over to a new desk and a new line where they processed the bag charge without the cash fee (how this wasn't done initially, I have no idea) and finally, we were finished with the check in process an hour later."
Cons: "Temperature in cabin too warm on outgoing flight"
Cons: "It was moving a lot!!! :\"
Pros: "previous flight arrived a bit late but captain did his best to make up the time"
Cons: "If they have a policy that passengers cant eat food bought outside the aircraft they should make sure that they have variations/choices on their menu. I can only eat fish but they dont have it on their menu so i brought my own food but the crew asked me to stop eating it because it was not allowed. Im hungry and tired and was upset that time."
Pros: "The cost was cheap"
Cons: "There wasn't much room for someone who is 6'4''"
Pros: "The departure time was delayed but the crew made every effort to arrive on time. Kudos to the pilots. The cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "I get that it’s a budget flight, so no frills. I wasn’t expecting bottled water but at least offer some water in a cup. The water bottles being sold was expensive and too small. They encourage us to stay hydrated but not everybody can keep shelling out money for water, and strictly no outside food or drinks. Can they at least allow us to bring water, short flights not so much a problem but long flights, not so good for that strict rule."
Pros: "Relaxed boarding and inflight experience Offer of refreshments when baggage delivery was delayed"
Cons: "Delay in delivering baggage"
Cons: "I get the seat selection pre-check in is a premium service. Bu to not allow someone to express preference (based on what's left) when they check in is downright snarky. The explanation that I got that "we need to balance the plane" is whitewash. It's clearly to push peopel to buying the premium service. But when you do that at the price of alienating people, you've done them and yourself a disservice. Time to rethink!"
Cons: "I had lost my luggage from Singapore to Maldives’s airport"
Cons: "Delay one hour"
Pros: "We were given the opportunity to bid for an upgrade which was totally worth it! We will definitely fly with Scoot again."
Cons: "The seat and tray table is greasy and dirty and there are two cracked holes in the arm rest!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "It was all great. Paid extra for the quiet area. Worth it"
Pros: "Scoot upgraded to a bigger plane, and as a result had more empty seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by almost 2 hours due to operational problems. despite that, there were still passengers who were late to board, causing more delays. no apologies from Scoot. plans were derailed."
