No new movies unlike on the way there :( dont really like being woken up for meals though, would be nice if they left a note to get a meal from them once ive gotten up.

Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
Pros: "The crew is really the only thing making the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "SQ800/805 are operated with "old" 777-200. The cabin is definitely not up to the Singapore Airlines standard. The IFE in particular is showing a very poor screen. And the food was, as frequently on SQ, below average."

Cons: "Very hard seats not many movies to choose from"
Pros: "New aircraft Airbus 350-900 - has lot of leg space even in economy class. Food was just OK, nothing special and far from what SQ used to serve to the passengers. I was very disappointed finding out that travel pack consists only toothbrush and tootpaste with socks included. No more slippers, eyes cover and no more other necessities for intercontinental flights ! What a shame for SQ to save the money on such important things for passengers. Staff was over indulging, someone would say - fake kindness shown ..."
Cons: "I didn't like the crew... They have to learn from Air Serbia staff and Turkish Airlines what is genuine kindness and politeness. And the most expensive aircompany should not be stingy and provide to passengers on intercontinental flights just toothbrush and socks in traveler pack !!! What a shame for SQ !"
Cons: "Older aircraft seats quite hard entertainment on last flight to Copenhagen entertainment was average."
Pros: "Awesome crew and food"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable.."

Pros: "Friendly crew, excellent service. So far best economy class"
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "The usual SQ charm was in effect during the flight - the crew was great, helpful without being intrusive, and the Krisflyet experience (albeit an older B777-300) was still good and enjoyable."
Cons: "The Milanese boarding crew was a little unexpectedly rude - the Milanese ladies were just kinda shouting at everyone and ordering unclear instructions. I also sat near the bathroom (seats 43A and C) and the smell was sometimes a bit strong. Also slightly disappointing was how quickly the chicken ran out on the way up!"
Pros: "We forgot to pack our liquid products into the check in baggage. After we went through the security check, we brought the liquid products back to the boarding pass counter, our baggage had already been sent to downstream. But the staffs was very helpful, they provided a box, packed the liquid products for us and checked it in as the second luggage. This solved our headache and it was a huge deal for us, making us smile. Thanks to your crew/staffs again."
Cons: "Providing some snacks would be helpful when getting off the board."
Pros: "On time, clean smooth ride. Landed early!"
Pros: "The crew was the most expert crew I have seen. I fly thousands of miles every year. Their alertness to safety was unprecedented for me. In Yangon the counter personnel were equally excellent, safety-conscious and personable."

Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Portion of food could have been slightly bigger"

Cons: "So far so good for its price"

Pros: "Super cool light meal in a little bag. Best budget airline I have flown."
Pros: "Seamless boarding and deviating."

Pros: "Good services"
Cons: "Good service and comfortable"
Pros: "Seats were comfy and staff helpful and nice."
Cons: "$60 charge for 10 kilos overweight limit. This is terrible."
Pros: "We paid for a thai international flight which includes allowing us to use the lounge. We were told in china that WE was the airline not thai international and we could not use the lounge, had no baggage allowance other than the minimum. We chose TG because it was star alliance and we are permanent lifetime gold members. There is no reason to pay a premium for TG if it is not a TG flight and we cannot use the lounge or have a low baggage limit. The check in staff noted our bags were exactly 20 kgs each and said there would be a charge of USD45 per kilo if we had exceeded that amount. This is ridiculous given that we should have the same as UA or SG."
Cons: "I have already mentioned the false advertising and poor service in china. TG cannot tell its loyal customers it is a TG flight and then charge for TG and then say it is not a TG flight. Nothing works right in China but i hope now that we are in thailand TG will honor its normal benefits to star alliance gold and platinum members. Otherwise, we wont fly TG any more."
Cons: "We did not receive any information as to why our flight was late."
Pros: "For a budget friendly airline you can't go wrong with Thai Smile. they were on time, food was provided free, staff was friendly."
Pros: "Flew out of BKK versus other airport in Bangkok. Easier to connect to international flights. Good service and frequent flights"
Cons: "They have sandwiches on the flights but they weren’t the best quality, I didn’t like what they gave out. We had roaches next to us crawling up the wall on our last flight, ended up finding some food Trash under our seat that was missed. not pleasant."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "They kept canceling flights. Bad service would not fly again."
Pros: "smooth as silk"
Pros: "I would highly recommend flying with this airline. It was a very efficient process and the staff was not only helpful but very nice."
Cons: "I had a fracture in my leg several days prior to my trip so had to cancal all. My thai smile tickets were booked with vayama. They r the only suppliers whom declined my request for free cancaltion or even freeze our tickets."
Cons: "There's only one down side of this flight. The Lucknow international airport terminal is downright embarrassing. There are four or five desks to handle passport control. That's fine, but none has a label on it as to who should be at which. NonIndians should go to the extreme left one. Then they have one xray machine that all arrivals have to put their carry-ons through while the previous flight is trying to put all their heavy luggage (they are most likely all male workers coming from the Gulf). Then there is a small, rickety belt with everyone crowded around for the luggage. Well, there are two belts, but only one is functional. And to top it off, most of the luggage carts have at least one broken wheel! Amazing and embarrassing when arriving from any terminal almost anywhere! Lucknow, you have a lovely domestic terminal, wake up and build an international one! Shurum ki bat ha!"
Pros: "Love the AirBus 320, the service, to get all the passengers a sandwich in an hour flight is amazing! Luggage delivery is amazingly fast!"
Cons: "Would like to have later flights in the evening so connections to overseas flights at BKK are easier. Otherwise, nothing!"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. Excellent service on board the aircraft with comfortable seating. And the meal served was delicious! (I never thought I would say that about food served on an airplane)"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and cumbersome, but, to be fair, I noticed it wasn't much different than all my other flight experiences in Thailand."
Pros: "On boar meal was great. Customer service was outstanding!"
Cons: "They don't offer more flights!"
Pros: "what's not to like. Free checked bag, free food, sandwich and bottle of water, soda and hot coffee and tea at no charge. All of the cheaper budget airlines charge for everything including checked bags, drinks and food. It's only a few baht/ US dollars more than the other airlines but well worth it for what you get in return compared to the other airlines such as Air Asia!"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "40 minute delay"
Pros: "Great service, very amicable staff, excellent plane"
Cons: "The crew had a poor attitude and even rude, I asked to move to get past the food trolley as my 4 year old son needed the toilet and they just said wait, they would only have to move 2 metres. We were sitting directly behind upper class but were not offered the chance to use the forward toilet even though there was no one sitting in that section. They seemed to have an attitude problem and not at al like Thai International who are excellent. will never fly again with Thai smile."
Pros: "The cost of upgrading to business class was very reasonable for a flight of that duration. Everything was stellar - service, food, drinks and access to the airport lounge. The meals were among the best I've had on any flight."
Cons: "The guy snoring. His snoring was literally louder than the noise from the jet engines and easily rose to levels that penetrated our noise cancelling headsets!!"
Cons: "I don't want to recommend to others to use this flight following reasons: (1) I can't use Thai lounge with star alliance gold card. (2) Thai air sold the Ticket, but boarding ticket issued by Thai smile. (3) a ground staff ( reissue staff)is unfriendly particularly those who is at Thai office, airport. (4)Thai smile is a low cost air line. So Thai air shouldn't sell this kind of ticket It hurts fame of Thai airs hospitality."
Pros: "Good flight, reasonable price"
Pros: "Great flight. On time. The crew was polite and professional. Nice experience."
Pros: "Chaotic check in process, ok boarding process, poor entertainment and nothing for vehetarians"
Pros: "Overall everything was good except meal option"
Cons: "Not having vegetarian snack or meal"
Cons: "Food was with meat."
Pros: "Only problem we encountered was a lost bag containing all my clothes. I arrived on a Friday and did not receive my bag until 2:50 am on Sunday morning"
Cons: "The flights were delayed for both times of the round trip from BKK to Phuket and Phuket to BKK. Wasted 2 days as we got stranded in the airport. Unacceptable! Flight to Yangon from Bangkok was cancelled and they didn't send any notification to inform us. Horrible customer service. When transferred the flight to Thai Airways flight we were very rudely treated by the counter agent. For 5 hours of wasted time they "accomodated" us with 350 baht ($10) vouchers and when asked to provide us with free extra bag check-in the manager said sorry we can't do that. No resolution no compromise NO SMILE! Above average airline price with terrible service, expect this to happen to you too."
Pros: "Our flight was amazingly smooth. We had lunch, which was unexpected, and it was delicious. Flight attendants were very friendly and efficient. 10/10 would recommend."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Cabin was very warm for a long time. Boarding could be more organized. Food - fish for main fish and tuna salad. I like fish, but really?"
Pros: "The plane was 3 +3 so it was small. The flight crew were sweet."
Cons: "The movies were limited,. There was no vegetarian option, only meat. The food was pretty basic and pretty bland."

Cons: "It was ok"
Cons: "New Aircraft with more seating space"
Pros: "On time, clean aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled 2 1/2 hours later at last minute, with no opportunity to reschedule to an earlier flight. I needed to catch an early morning flight from Jakarta the next morning, meaning I got only 3 hours of sleep at my hotel instead of over 5 hours."
Cons: "Since I had to cancel the flight due to personal problems at home, it would have been better if you hadn’t reminded me of the missed opportunity by asking me to review said flight. This has caused me emotional stress."
Pros: "Void Jancok"
Cons: "Void Jancok"
Pros: "Checkin process very smooth"
Cons: "Boarding process, and gate assigned is quite far .."

Cons: "Old plane, walking distance to board the plane is so far"

Pros: "As above"

Pros: "The boarding procedure from CGK T3 is pretty smooth and good!"

Pros: "Boarding on time, efficient flight, handled well, on time at destination."
Cons: "Long check in queue, many counters closed, counter staff seemed very busy with talking to their colleagues while checking in passengers. I am used better from Garuda."
Pros: "Smooth flight on time including lunch service. Good entertainment system. Friendly attentive crew."
Cons: "Low quality food. On arrival in Bali walked a long way inside terminal down corridors and up-down stairs without anyone guiding disembarking passengers and without signs guiding us. We even passed other passengers in the halls boarding their flights. So disorganized!"

Cons: "Boarding time is not punctual."
Pros: "new plane list of movies"
Cons: "food quality is not good to and fro flights"
Pros: "Crew still manage to provide their excellent services instead of all of the problem related to boarding."
Cons: "There's no dedicated Garuda counter for internet checked-in international passengers at Soekarno Hatta T3; you need to queue together with the other passengers. I've put a formal suggestion before to Garuda several months ago; seems nobody care. Gate information is confusing, initially shown gate number at *domestic* terminal; then changed again twice. In the end they took you on a bus-ride to domestic gate; need to climb a couple of narrow stairs (good luck for older people); the escalator next to it is set for descending only while the ground crew doing nothing. Then your plane are on the 7th queue for another 20 minutes. Food is mediocre, in flight entertainment suddenly went blank and resetting for several minutes."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing - your Arline’s cancelled our flight and could got us out in 1 instead of 3 days late. You even tried charge a change fee or $ 800 more for business class Tix to depart earlier!"
Cons: "see message above"
Cons: "Waited for over an hour for the last bags to be loaded to the baggage carousel at LAX, only to find out that a CZ employee standing two feet away from me had a sheet of paper with the owner names of four pieces of luggage known to be "stuck" in China. Bah humbug!"
Pros: "The quality of the food was truly outstanding. A personal chef on board - very happy to vary the food to get it just right, Also to suggest an alternative. I asked for something with a little spice. The flight attendent suggest one dish but then discussing it with the chef he suggested alterning another. Presentation expectional."
Cons: "The cabin is good but the style is a little old fashioned compared to other airlines - although the cabin wasn’t tattty. In the same way that Emirates is really old fashioned to westerners eyes."
Pros: "..service great - I normally fly Singapore airlines - but now I will always consider guruda"
Cons: "...had same movies going to Indonesia ...and on the return journey to London being a 14hr 20 min flight to Jakarta I had watched many of the film's - I was a little disappointed to see the film list hadn't changed when I was about to sit through a 13 hr return trip !!"

Cons: "The entertainment system need more variation"
Pros: "We were warmly greeted and quickly checked in ...very efficient. The plane even left a bit early...don't be late!"
Pros: "Food, flight, service, entertainment, free checked bag"
Cons: "This was my mother in law traveling. Upon arrival in Jakarta, no Garuda staff assisted her in changing terminals for connecting flight. Security would not let her in to China Airlines entrance, because her boarding pass was from Garuda. They were telling her to go back to Garuda terminal. My wife had to contact someone at China Airlines to go find her, get her through security, and escort her to the plane which had already boarded!!"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants with good food. The arrival time was scheduled, no delay."
Pros: "Great service and menu in business class. Best I have experienced."
Pros: "Their lounge in Soekarno Hatta is cozy with a lot of food choices."

Pros: "The crew are polite."
Cons: "Insufficient information about boarding , no announcement. No information screen. The food was a bit strange."
Cons: "Sin-Jkt Fish with Rice: rice was very salty"

Pros: "The flight from strong was delayed by 2.5 hours due to a technical problem. In spite of this delay Garuda made sure I made my connection in Makassar and my luggage also made the connection."
Cons: "Being a Westerner, a lighter choice for food might have been nice. Perhaps just fruit and vegetables would have been good. Also since i had three flights being served a heavy meal on each flight was more than I needed."
Pros: "Professional and Excellent Customer Service"
Pros: "The chicken was very dry and over cooked"
Cons: "Better range of entertainment as the options were a bit dated and mediocre"
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: "Better treatment of luggage. Better business class service. Food was poor."
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: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Bathrooms could be cleaner."
Pros: "The crew was extremely hospitable, and the food was excellent."

Cons: "But the flight left and arrived 30 minn late!"
Pros: "The flight was pleasant, the staff were delightful, and the plane (a new 737-800) was very comfortably configured."
Cons: "Check-in took an intolerably long time (45 minutes)."
Pros: "The seat I got was certainly comfortable enough."
Cons: "The staff was not enough particular in delivering appropriate food to correct people. In flight KL to Auckland, vegan food was served when Indian vegetarian food was requested. Long queues at boarding in KL."
Cons: "Seat back didn’t stay upright so it was uncomfortable when I wasn’t trying to sleep."
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: "Flight delayed!!"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. . The food bland but warm. But the seats were microscopic"
Cons: "Seats were tiny. My knees pressed to seat in front of me. I’m 73 inches tall"
Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate reflected on the boarding pass for the third time already. And to make it worse, this was the most difficult problem that me and my friends encountered throughout all the flights that we took. We nearly miss this flight as we actually went to the boarding gate that was reflected incorrectly on our boarding pass as stated earlier. There was also an unannounced delay. Flight estimated departure is at 1720HRS, but the flight only took off 1750HRS."
Pros: "Attendants were kind."
Cons: "Frequent delays to flight timings, and it was hard to find where the flight gate was as I couldn't find one on the screen. It was a little bit crowded. No food was given (probably because it's only 50mins flight but I wished there were snacks or drinks given for us)"
Pros: "There were choices of foods. I really liked the fact that they considered Korean natives as they gave kimchi together with their dishes. Attendants were polite and kind. 30kg allowance is a great merit too."
Cons: "Frequent delays in flights and changes in timings. There were many passengers and it's quite hard to carry my carrier through the alley. The foods may be in variety but did not taste very nice."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"
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: "Short flight."
Cons: "One of our luggage was delayed during transit."
Cons: "The boarding process from at Langkawi airport could have been better if more staff are to deploy to do the processing.As the que is not in one line, it could create misunderstanding among other passengers."
Cons: "Initial flight was one hour late....almost missed my connecting flight, bags didn't make it to my destination. Not much help or info given about the late flight and how to connect to the next flight. First plane was old and beat-up."

Pros: "Everything flowed smoothly."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have inflight entertainment within our seatbacks."

Pros: "Nothing remarkable"

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: "Cabin crew are attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The luggage was found opened, a belonging was tied outside of the luggage. When I tidy up the luggage, I found that my toiletry pouch went missing. MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."

Cons: "Crew Service is horrible. They get angry very easily."

Pros: "Crew was good in flight."
Cons: "The flight was excessively delayed. What was supposed to be a flight leaving at 2:25 AM left only at 4:15 AM or so. This is AFTER my original flight which I had booked for 1 AM was changed to 2:25 AM."
Pros: "The ice cream is a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "prepacked juice. Could be more option."

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: "Second flight in a row for a one hour flight and we are delayed one hour. Better just go with a low cost airline then"
Pros: "Fare was ok."

Pros: "good budget airline."
Cons: "seats are very close, legroom is uncomfortable"
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!"
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped up."
Pros: "Flight was v smooth"

Cons: "Lazy crew"
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."
Cons: "Always delay!!!!"
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"

Cons: "Fail tu makesure customer bag arrival safely"

Cons: "Nothing we didn’t really not like"
Pros: "Check in, boarding was easy, staff were friendly, flight was uneventful"
Cons: "Unable to use airasia app for e-boarding"
Pros: "This is now our airline of choice between KL and Singapore and the next time we fly to Australia we will try flying with Air Asia. It was a very short flight so entertainment was not provided, and we were perfectly happy with that. Very reasonable fare. All staff were charming and very helpful. Highly recommend."
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."
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."

Cons: "Seat rows were very close & limited room."
Pros: "Pilot was communicative and smooth landing"
Cons: "Long check in. Didn't allow us to mobile or online check in for some reason"
Pros: "The food is shockingly decent. Yeah you have to pay cash and it’s not convenient, but the food is edible and there is lots of variety."
Cons: "AirAsia sucks balls. Or at least, it was fine leaving Singapore, but returning from a crappy small town airport to it was a fraudulent nightmare. We were told to check in online and add baggage at least two days before flying to avoid excessive baggage fees. So we paid them the first time, no problem. But AirAsias website is clearly coded by bricks with fingers. Because 6,5,4, and 3 days prior, it says such service is unavailable. Okay, we’ll do it at the airport then, it’ll be nice and easy just like at Changi. Only at this crappy subpar excuse for an airport, they live by no rules and want to charge $300USD - more than double what was charged at Changi - for two 20kg bags. 20kg, which my boarding pass and my booking both say we are entitled to, is suddenly 5kg in excess, so they want to screw your American wallet hard, long, and good because even if you had a good time, chances are you will never pass through the half baked gas station that is Langkawi again. Oh yeah and don’t bother paying for the WiFi - they get you good there too - 10mb which is basically a couple jpegs but you won’t get squat anyway. Literally nothing, and then suddenly your puny 10mb has disappeared, along with your money and what’s left of AirAsias credibility."
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: "Efficient service & great crew"
Pros: "There was a fee to change the automatically assigned middle seat to a window seat, but it was low: either $6 for a seat close to the front of the plane or $3 elsewhere. It was nice to have those options. First time flyer on Air Asia; I would choose them again."
Cons: "No beverage service unless you had booked it in advance."
Pros: "Being updated of the status of flight periodically"
Cons: "Airport was crowded. As many other flights were delayed too."
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"
Pros: "Quick easy and simple. Staff were very friendly."
Cons: "No a ala carte food available due to insufficient staff, no towel for shower and i need to use my own towel and carry the wet towel on the way back to Singapore, no hot water for shower, staff sitting down there to chit chat and a cleaner was preparing my lousy latte. Worst Plaza Premium Lounge experience!"
Pros: "very affordable fare"
Cons: "No beverage even water. Bring your own water"
Pros: "quick check-in and no-nonsense."
Cons: "They were fine."
Cons: "The delays......"
Cons: "No family priority boarding."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was great First time using the inflight entertainment Rokki. Great job Airasia."
Cons: "Ground check in crew at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (Azureen) was damn rude. I'm appalled with her customer service level. Rude and not helping at all. Worst Airport staff I've met so far."
Pros: "on time friendly staff KL is good airport easy to get through and in to town on the train"
Cons: "even on buses in asia you are given drinking water pay for it here"
Pros: "On time"
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: "Pilots made a great effort to cut down the delay, kudos to them."
Cons: "No organization whatsoever in boarding procedures. No announcement made on the flight being delayed, only a message passed down from passengers at the very front. Plane was not cleaned and emptied of rubbish before we were boarded. Most shocking of all, the plane was being refueled while passengers were boarding. All in all, pretty appalling. I take budget flights 2-3 times a year and this is the worst experience I've had with budget carriers (including the European budget carriers with dirt cheap fares and sometimes non-existence customer service)."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "Check in staff was extremely rude, and extorted us for RM 20 for checking in 59 minutes before the flight instead of the supposedly required 60 minutes. Their policies are outrageous, arbitrary and not stated anywhere."
Pros: "Cabin crew were proactive, hard working and super friendly. Upgraded to "hot" seats at check in without charge. Wide range of food and beverages available despite being a short 1.5 hour flight. Aircrafts were clean and well maintained. Both flights landed either on time or early despite weather issues."
Cons: "Check in process, hidden fees, unworkable app for iPhone. I tried to use the app to check in and pay for a bag, it didn't allow me and I had to pay the much more expensive fee at the airport to check the bag. App in general didn't work well at all, it never showed the return leg journey so I couldn't make any amendments to the booking. Check in process took ages in Langkawi, only two desks open for all of AK's flights. None of the self service kiosks were working despite being advertised as functioning."
Cons: "I was charged $94 canadian to check one bag that weighed in at 10kg. I honestly thought the man at the desk was joking. After that he sneered at me and suggested that if I had not booked through Kayak and instead through the airline, that it would be a little cheaper. He then pushed me to hand over my credit card so he could charge me. From then on all I have to say is that the planes have no entertainment, no leg room (they are known for the insanely tight seats) and no food. Not even a drop of water was offered unless you pay on board. Interesting...I wonder what they do then with all of the money they took to accept my one bag (it was seriously 10k, I'm a small girl travelling alone there was nothing large about it). All that to say, I wish I could get some money back, I would never have paid so much to check a bag if I had the opportunity to cancel the flight all together. I'm beyond unhappy with my experience."
Cons: "I have flight from kualalumpur to Guangzhou ,there was no whight on tickets, I booked through Kayak web site , Only 15 kg per person is avaliable and for fees , At low fare , I have to pay twice my ticket price for I didnt book my whight before flight online ,. ? ? Flight was 4 hours to Gungzhou , no meals on board , not even a glass of water . You have to pay again on board for your food , and drinks , I feel like traviling in a low degree shattel bus , in a very very poor quality ."
