Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "No entertainment facilities available even in business class"
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!"

Pros: "Pleasant steward"
Cons: "Delayed and waste time at Jakarta airport"
Pros: "Food provided in Mumbai to KL flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "In flight from Mumbai to KL, requested orange juice was never served. Insufficient toilets in aircraft. Appeared that toilet numbers were compromised with additional seats so to gain more profit. Also toilets far away from the seats. Long queues 3 x 3 seating arrangement is hopeless for 5 hour journey as person at window needs to disturb both middle and aisle seat holder."
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."
Cons: "Old plane"

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: "The plane was decent. The offering on the IFE was a good mix. Food was ok"

We had to demand to speak to a manager for them to change our seats."
Cons: "Only 3 hours to checkin prior boarding for business class. I waited for 2 hours foor checkin"

Cons: "There could be more leg room available and wifi on the plane"
Cons: "Everything but price. Wouldn't take it again."
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late with no terminal announcements of the delay."
Cons: "For a country known for its variety and quality of food, Malaysia Airlines is probably the worst place to experience it. Tasteless, poorly presented food and the most unappetising of choices. Crew were harried and rude, and the whole journey seems to last 16 hours instead of 8."
Pros: "They connected our checked baggage all the way through Dallas."
Pros: "Food was simply awful; which is a shame for a national airline of a country known for its great cuisine. Some members of the crew were really nice, but we had one on each leg of the flight that were so rude to passengers. On the KUL-BKK leg, one male crew member was really loud and obnoxious, and on the BKK-KUL leg, one female crew member was yelling at some older passengers who were a little slow in boarding."
Cons: "see headline"
Cons: "No delays"

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: "Friendly crew. Toilets kept clean. Nice ambience with the cabin lighting."
Cons: "My seat had a broken recliner button. Seat would recline but not stay reclined. If I sat up, seat would come up with me."

Pros: "I hope never to fly Scoot again."

Cons: "Things to know: Need to download an app before getting on the flight to get ScootTV. Plane was a little loud."

Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "The long delay......"
Pros: "Organised well. Clean plane. Excellnt comms from pilot and staff presented well."
Cons: "Could not recline chair"

Cons: "No TV on plane"
Pros: "i did not see any entertainment."
Cons: "Everything but the price. Worst customer service ever!!!"
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: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "How can the the airline serve such terrible food that smells of processed plastic!!! It is served burning hot and unedivle."
Pros: "Crew was cordial, helpful and patient."
Cons: "There was absolutely no complimentary service at all, a bit unusual compared to flights we've taken in the past (domestic and international). No offer of free water, what's up with that?!?! There was no entertainment on board for an overnight flight, no blanket, no pillow."
Cons: "They lied about baggage costs My flight on scoot from blr to Singapore was 2 hrs delayed and no reason"
Pros: "Relaxed boarding and inflight experience Offer of refreshments when baggage delivery was delayed"
Cons: "Delay in delivering baggage"
Cons: "This was a return flight I was taking. But even though I paid for a bag when booking, Kayak only booked the bag on the flight over. It there for cost me $48 to book the bag on at the airport one way back. For some reason when I was paying they could not take for the full amount on my CC and so I had to go change money as $8 had to be paid cash (very strange). The flight was very uncomfortable. I could go into detail but now I’m just ranting. Not happy. Won’t be doing that again."
Cons: "I could not get on time at airport for check in, because the train got stuck 25min. When I got the counter 45min. Before the flight leaves, they told me that the flight is closed and they can not do anything to help me!!!"
Cons: "I had lost my luggage from Singapore to Maldives’s airport"
Cons: "Delay one hour"
Pros: "Scoot Business is excellent value for money. 35 seats at the front of a Dreamliner with comfortable seats and some recline. The flight took off on time and landed in Sydney on time. I will go again."
Cons: "Not much really. It does not compare with Business on the national carriers but at half the price what do you expect?"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and plane embarked on time. ScootBiz seats pretty comfortable although don’t seem to recline much more than economy. Overall good flight though."
Pros: "We were given the opportunity to bid for an upgrade which was totally worth it! We will definitely fly with Scoot again."
Pros: "Early alert that flight was going to be 5 hours late."
Cons: "No online check- in. Very slow check in at airport. Vouchers provided for food at airport - only problem was we couldn’t find a place that would take them. Boarding was painfully late and slow. As we arrived in the early hours of the morning the cost of taxis were double the normal price. Still no compensation as promised by the airline when they initially advised us of the late flight. Could do a lot better."
Pros: "Easy and cheap"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and the plane itself (B787) is a new plane and the lower pressurised altitude is very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like being told off by one of the flght attendants for eating my own food on the flight. If Scoot's food was more reasonably priced I would buy it, but it is overpriced and therefore I need to bring my own. The seats are uncomfortable for sleeping in. The cabin temperature was a bit cold and with no blanket supplied this made it hard to sleep. Even though you are flying between two tropical destinations, I would recommend bringing a jumper."
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."
