Punctuality & the distance between my home & Subang Airport
Pros: "Check in and immigration was quick. Flight was on time"
Cons: "Even though there plenty of seats available, the auto seat allocation put another passenger next to me."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hour and 50 minutes. Even my inbound flight also delayed one hour."
Cons: "Flight delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Flight was on time, friendly attendants."
Cons: "Check-in took forever, another line should have been opened. Very little legroom on the plane."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "Announcement at the airport is unclear"
Pros: "Very always at check in but all very relaxed. Only gave 3 for food as we'd asked for pot noodle (Rm3) only to be told they had no hot water. Not serious & we didn't use their entertainment. Otherwise all good & would recommend"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and disembarkation T2 arrival in SIN Online check in"
Cons: "Needed to re check in in SIN, even on a same day flight Flight was late for both sectors SZB-SIN-SZB"
Pros: "The staff has no personality and no working knowledge of how customer service is supposed to be. I booked this as Malaysia Airlines and even though it's operated by Firefly, it should've recognized my priority status with OneWorld."
Pros: "There was one local manager who smiled a lot and tried to promise things that it turned out he wasn't allowed to promise while his airline was screwing me."
Cons: "International travelers, check and recheck your flight. Firefly canceled my flight "several weeks ago", according to them, didn't notify me by phone or email despite the fact that they admitted they had both on file, didn't refund the money to my credit card until the day before departure so i had no idea of the change, and then provided no help whatsoever when i arrived at the airport and the flight didn't exist anymore."
Cons: "Hot in the plane upon boarding"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and easy. Check-in line was short, the whole airport experience was quick and easy. Flight was smooth, comfortable, staff was so friendly. When I checked in for my flight in Penang, the girl who helped me, Kay, was the most friendly help I've ever had.. She offered me a great seat and was patient and friendly when I requested to be moved around. She made conversation while we waited for the system to finish, and had a huge smile the whole time. She set the time for the whole airport and flight experience, and had me smiling the rest of the day. If there's a way to tell her bosses - she is a gem, hang on to her! I'm looking forward to my next trip on firefly!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a bit, but flight took off within a few minutes of schedule, so no real problem!"
Pros: "the flight attendant on board was lively in making announcements!"
Cons: "Flight was first brought forward by 30 mins. Arrived on time at the gate, but actually it's delayed by 15 mins from the original time. So in total delayed about 50 mins from brought forward time. NO ground staff at the gate bothers to inform us. Flight status screen shows "Callng", when approached, ground staff just replied "not yet" in a bad manner. Terrible ground service."
Departure at your own time
The worst kind of budget airline. To be honest....the plane was not that bad. Would have been good to have some food choices and some water. What was by far the worse is the passengers/customers that this airline attracts. Coughing and spluttering all over one another with no masks. Just disgusting. Pay for a better carrier and get a better class of passenger.
Cons: "More food variety"
Pros: "Very smooth and easy process boarding and taking off"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "delayed landing because of chinese reasons"
Pros: "A nice experience overall. Flight was quiet so plenty of personal space."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from check in to arrival. Bags were delivered timely. Flights were on time."
Cons: "No entertainment options. Little to no food service."
Pros: "The crew are ok. They should find jobs with other, better airlines."
Cons: "Flight delayed on both legs. Delay management horrible, call centre was worse."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight early by more than 2 hours, with no communication. I therefore missed the flight. I was informed there was a flight that evening but they refused to move me as I had booked through an agent. Waited more than 6 hoursnin the airport for next flight and was offered only a meal voucher worth £4. Later flight was delayed, resulting in me missing my friends pre wedding henna party and arriving more than 8 hours late. Not a single apology given!"
Pros: "Except for a 1-hour delay, overall the flight was good, smooth and enjoyable. Loved the inflight meal. For the price we paid we got meal and 30kg baggage allowance, we thought that was just value for money. And they departed from KLIA and not klia2 which is more convenient."
Cons: "Flight wasn't on time to and from HKG."
Pros: "The staff were very kind, the seat had a great amount of leg room."
Cons: "There was no alcohol on the flight."
Pros: "Getting out of the plane"
Cons: "getting in the plane. No working tablet. Poor food."
Pros: "Crews are nice."
Cons: "Seems like Malindo is starting to degrading the service quality. The flight I took before: they change the airplane to batik which was worse with no entertainment, smaller seat pitch, etc. I book Malindo for a reason and paid for what expected using Malindo!! If they had to change the plane they should've given better one or given back compensation to passengers! Now this flight, they didn't activate the entertainment till way later and turned off way too early. They didn't give any earphone as supposed to. Malindo's service has become bad."
Pros: "For the price that we paid, it included 30kg baggage and refreshment (orange juice, water, coffee, a slice of pizza and a muffin) - it was worth it. The legroom is spacious, the seat was comfortable and the cabin crew was awesome. Flight was on time, check in was acceptable (considering people travelling from Bandung has a lot of check in baggage due to shopping)."

Cons: "The boarding process could be improved."
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours delayed and they offered no compensation or extra meal."
Pros: "Leg space and good arm rest"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment (movies)"
Pros: "The seats are more comfortable compared to the other budget airlines."
Cons: "The crew doesn't smile most of the time, sometimes they sound like ordering when they request something. The movies selection is either old, or mostly Indian movies."
Pros: "I have flown Malindo before and I have been happy about tbeir customer service."
Pros: "In flight meal."
Cons: "Got told luggage would go straight to bali from origin in Nepal. Waited at baggage check in jarkata just in case. Sure enough, our baggage comes out. Transfer to domestic terminal was almost impossible since we were given no information and our flight number changed completely. All of a sudden it was batik air not malindo, which has a completey different terminal. Will not be travelling with malindo again."
Pros: "Check in and boarding we're both quick and easy. There were unsold exit row seats on our flight and the flight attendants lets us change seats. The in flight meals were quite tasty."
Cons: "The beverage options were limited and mostly consisted of different flavors of fruit soda. The flight attendants sprayed the cabin with a strange aerosol before landing. Trash was not collected during the flight."
Pros: "Service and comfort with blanket, and entertainment movies."
Cons: "Luggage collection rather late in Bali."
Pros: "Same as previous, no fuss."
Pros: "No fuss, well organised."

Pros: "Love the width of the seat, the free 30kg luggage allowance and food. All provided without extra cost."
Pros: "Malindo Air impressed me above and beyond with their services, from start to finish! I don't think I've had a better experience with an airline before - keep up the amazing work Malindo!"
Pros: "Read trip advisor Will never use them again They will have an accident and it will be their fault"
Pros: "Comfortable and modern plane with good services and good communication. We had a minor delay due to poor weather but pilot and staff communicated the situation well and took safety precautions. Good entertainment options and food."
Pros: "The plane was quite new, very modern, and well equipped with entertainment features. Services were good and all staff spoke English. Good amount of leg room in the economy seats as well."
Cons: "There are small snack & water given previously, but now only water."
Cons: "Terrible call centre. No reply on the list luggage phone number. Absolutely terrible service"
Cons: "Flight had a new schedule without prior notice We're unable to take this flight. Did not get any refund"
Pros: "Proactively checking the boarding pass to shorten que of the boarding process."
Cons: "Cabin very hot. Aircond broken??"
Pros: "Horrible, tv not working. I asked for no vegan and they forgot to bring my food. After I mentioned, they finally brought and was vegan! Plane very unconfortable and old. Totally different than the connection place that was way less time on air."

Pros: "Every thing in the flight was excellent."

The queue at the gate was very badly managed
Rescheduled my flights without asking me. And I am losing money on reservation
Cons: "Vegetarian Food need to be Improved...."
Cons: "Better range of entertainment as the options were a bit dated and mediocre"
Cons: "My entertainment system was not working, so was my seatmate's."
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."
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: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."
Cons: "I am more than pleased with the service I received, keep up the work Kind regards Shane"
Pros: "Airport, sea side"
Pros: "The MAS stewardess was really nice & helpful"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "All went Well, no delays, good service."

Cons: "It was delayed by 15mins due to heavy rain but it was OK as everything else was on point"
Pros: "Crew is ok, accommodating, entertainment system ok, food ok."
Cons: "level up on the service, I think MH needs to take a second look at the whole company in terms of culture and level of service."
Pros: "Crews were good."
Cons: "Seats were small and quite uncomfortable. luckily it was a short trip. If travelling long distance I ll have to consider a different airlines."
Cons: "aircraft a bit old and my remote control was broken, lunckily my next seat was not occupied, so I can move to next seat and the seat a bit old and decline angle so limit. if compare with business class seat of other airlines, it's a bit not up to standard."
Cons: "Changed gates 3 times . No one knew what was going on. Late flight. Request for wheel chair not fulfilled. Very tight transfer. Very far to another gate when transiting from kL to Yangon. Ridiculously far. My first n last time with Malaysia airlines."
Cons: "The pre boarding security was a mess and poorly managed in Kuala Lumpur."
Pros: "Brand new A350!"
Cons: "Hmm, nothing really. Lucky I was not in a hurry.."
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: "Food was good and staff was always with a smile in their face"
Cons: "Super crowded and not much room in between rows, I aspected a bit larger and more comfortable plane for an international flight"

Cons: "Seats rather basic for business class"
Pros: "Over all flight experience ok, lack of boarding information and ran out of menu choice but rest ok."
Cons: "Arrived in one piece but my luggage didn't; flew from Auckland to Singapore via KL with a 2 hr layover; how luggage didn't make connecting flight is beyond me; maybe they just lose things"
Pros: "Not much. Probably only the check in from.Phnom Penh. Haha checked through to Melb"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online to secure reserved preferred seat section. No boarding passes printed on long haul section. Fight delayed, arrival delayed. No terminal parking for aircraft, which meant catching a bus to terminal. Not impressed at all. Why bother with frequent flyer class if it's not going to apply at all as business flyers."
Pros: "Leg room. Thanks Charles. Legend!!! 9c but prefer 10"
Cons: "My screen didn't stay up. Needs fixing"
Cons: "Food is always the same - soggy noodles and chicken or bland spaghetti and wilted veg with soggy fish. Seats cramped. Wasn't informed of gate change until 30 minutes later. Crew efficient but a little lacking in hospitality department."
Pros: "I got there eventually"
Cons: "The delay"
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: "It was a very good flight ."
Pros: "Prompt and great service."
Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Cabin crew was courteous. Seat was comfortable."

Pros: "Crew was kind"
Cons: "Very bad smell in the cabin, and not very clean"
Pros: "Plane seemed new and the seats were comfortable in Business class. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Food was stale cellophane wrapped bread and croissant that I did not eat. There is no alcohol served on any Malaysian flight of less than 3 hours. It was a bus boarding that was delayed by weather supposedly but the Tiger Air flight that was due to depart from the same gate area 35 minutes later actually took off on time before our flight. I lived in Malaysia and Singapore for eight years in the late '80's and early '90's, at which time I thought that Malaysian was the best airline in the sky. Sadly, their present service is US airline quality at best without the general ability of US carriers to keep to schedule which makes them one of the worst in Asia."
Cons: "There could be more leg room available and wifi on the plane"
Pros: "Very good service , small seats , good food"
Pros: "Safety concerns of crew"
Cons: "Seat pitch is ridiculously small for regional 737 aircraft. At 5 foot 7 inches, my knees touch the seat pocket. AND THE SEATS DO NOT RECLINE!!!!"
