not retimed flight

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."
Pros: "None"
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."
Pros: "On time"

Nice with new livery

The flight is awful, food isn’t very tasty or good, entertainment sucks

Personable, friendly service. Crew interactions always naturally pleasant and polite. The crew really enjoy their job and interactions with one another. Public Addresses are all smooth, clear and unambiguous - this instils confidence. Landing was butter-smooth in what seemed to be challenging and turbulent conditions - Kudos to the flight crew. Boarding and airport experience were good also.

Cons: "Dinner was only one piece of pizza That’s it"
Cons: "I paid more than 1500 ringgit for the bags, although the booking of the trip was comprehensive. Unfortunately the site disappointed me"

Cons: "Bigger aircraft"
Cons: "Frustrated"
Pros: "Boarding was organized"
Cons: "Vegetarian food wasn’t great"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the in-flight entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The crew shouldn’t assume that an Asian person is Vietnamese just because they boarded from Vietnam. The vegetarian door was awful."
Pros: "Some staff were good others could not be bothered."
Cons: "Nicer staff"
Cons: "Flight delay announcement could have been made much earlier"
Cons: "It was delayed by 15mins due to heavy rain but it was OK as everything else was on point"

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: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"
Pros: "All aspects were fine. Weather caused a delay for landing of ore than 45 minutes, but not airline's fault."
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."
Pros: "Liked the USB port for recharging electronic devices"
Cons: "Seats were too close together. Not very comfortable. We were in row in front of emergency exit. Seats didn't recline. We should be alerted when we select these seats that they are uncomfortable."
Cons: "Their app is useless. Not user friendly and always down ! Their staff can't even give proper directions on what need to be done in terms of getting upgrades ! Such a shame how it this airlines is getting from bad to worst. They use to be great and my number one choice , but now they are just a disappointment. I am only supporting MAS because they are my national carrier"
Pros: "Crew were awesome. Could not do enough for you. Very personable too!"
Cons: "Security at Adelaide very slow and under resourced."
Pros: "I got there eventually"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Flight to Penang was delayed for more than 3 hours for unclear reasons. These was not a clear announcement as to what was going on. Then after that, they were waiting on the crew from Langkawi. We arrived at 2 a.m. or so as a resluy"
Cons: "Lateness and lack of transparency from MAS staff"
Cons: "The quality of the in-flight meal (noodles and fish) very poor!"
Pros: "Efficient check in"

Pros: "On time departure system works"
Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing."
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: "Flight was full ...so felt cramped. Towards back of plane so only 1 toilet. The Veg pie was slightly warm and unappetising , took 1 bite and left rest. Steward saw this and gave me extra peanuts instead. The brekkie was awfulll, the supposed scrambled eggs was congealed into the shape of the holder and again lukewarm the grilled tomatoe looked washed out....unappetiising...so ate the squahed croissant , yoghurt and fruit. What happened to international food standards . Crew was nice...though if wanted water later on had to get yourself.They didn't come around much offering water before Brekkie. No game option eg Sudoku on Entertainment site. My bag come off carousel more scratched than with other Airlines, so poor handling. Disembarked by stairs at Sydney Airport near Cargo plane area and had bus to Airport. Never had that before on an International flight , so took much longer to get into terminal....last thing you want after a long flight."

The table top had part of a meal left on it."
Pros: "Comfort ok"
Cons: "I'm a 4 years Globe trotter Malaysia airlines is one of the worse companies I know my backpack new generation for great traveller by few months before at $600 form Kathmandu been torn up ( tear ) with shoes print on my backpack I'm not recommend this companies to anyone it was my first and last time I used ."

Pros: "Missed flight because the Air Asia app could not process my boarding pass.

Cons: "The leg room is deplorable. My knees were continuously hitting the hard seat in front of me and going sideways wasn't even an option. I've never had this happen to me before. I'm a female and 5'9 and this is the least space I've ever had on a flight. So uncomfortable I can't imagine a long flight with this airline, which is good to know because now I will not use them for flying to Malaysia from NYC. Also both flights were delayed by nearly an hour each."

Unfortunately, as they only had 2 people working at the check-in desk, we waited in line for over an hour to get checked in. Everyone was telling the staff that we were all at risk of missing our flight (as we still needed to clear security and immigration), however nothing changed. The girls behind the desk seemed genuinely flustered and sorry about the situation, but unfortunately no one else came to support. We made our flight by the skin of our teeth, but it seems that people in line behind us weren't so lucky."
Cons: "Not much snack and drinks options for short flight when customer don't want a meal onboard."
Pros: "Krabi airport discount terminal had no air conditioning. It has been broken down for while and poor AirAsia staff and the airport employees have been enduring working in heat. How can AirAsia let this happen while collecting airport tax fees? Complained to the airport manager and filed a refund for airport tax fees with AirAsia airport manager"
