Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Comfort & punctuality"
Cons: "All four flights with Malaysia Airlines were delayed, no reasons and no information. Appalling."
Cons: "No entertainment facilities available even in business class"
Cons: "There were no vegan options available. I think that was my fault though because I did not set one up in advance. Would be nice if they offered one anyhow."
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: "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: "Everything on the plane was fine, and the service was great."

Cons: "Perfect flight"
Cons: "Fight was delayed"
Cons: "Tight seating made it less comfortable than normal, and mechanical issues caused some delays."
Pros: "The food and check in is better flying from HK to KL.."
Cons: "It seems the crew, in most flights, is always grumpy.. rarely I get service with a smile.."
Cons: "* Business lounge was pathetic with NO food, only drink and snack. * Boarding was not efficient and took longer that it should have so had a late take off. * Business class.... Ran out of food!?!?! What the heck! only water available for 6 of 16 seats! Pathetic * Terminals not updated so had to take transfer to another terminal to get my arranged ride."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Two MH flights I took were 1 hour and 2 hours late. The latter resulted in missing connection to BKK and another flight to TPE. I got stuck in Kuala Lumpur for the night and they booked me a resort that was 30-40 min drive from the airport. How are all of these reasonable?!"
Pros: "Food and hospitality"
Cons: "Canceled flights both directions. Poor airport. Long runway times. When told I was notified about the canceled flights, I was issued absolutely no apologies."
Pros: "The first and second flight of the four were on time. The food was surprisingly pretty good- probably some of the best airplane food I've had. Not much variety, but still good. One of the four flights had entertainment, and the movies were of good selection."
Cons: "Planes poorly taken care of inside. First flight back delayed so long, missed our connection. Ended up having to stay in KL, where the hotel they put us in was an hour away from the airport. No direction, terrible communication. The attendant in Bali lied to me, knowingly. I had to miss a day of work due to this. And this all could have been avoided if they would have held the second plane just 30 more minutes."
Pros: "The entertainment, seat spacing"
Cons: "The gate"
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: "Despite recent tragedies that led to loss of life and aircraft, the flag carrier of Malaysia seems to be well on the road back to good health and prosperity. This is a win-win situation all 'round. From being re-booked to an earlier flight by their impressive ground staff to excellent in-flight service and airmanship during the ride, the experience was truly one of the nicest airline experiences in recent memory. With improvements at MNL coupled with this fine experience, I now have another option to choose from when traveling by air both within SEA and beyond. Kudos to all."
Cons: "Though not MH's fault, having to queue for nearly 2 hours at KLIA to clear immigration formalities was an extremely rude welcome back here, considering that it took me less than 30 minutes in June to clear formalities at the "Budget Terminal.""
Pros: "Latest informtion about the weither"
Cons: "Flight Costume"
Pros: "The flight surprisingly arrived ahead of schedule :)"

Cons: "Pudong airport ground stuff requested for Singapore identity card; soft copy was presented, both identity and re-entry permit issued by Singapore government. They were not clear, hesitate, call around. By the time they found out what is required, we already spent close to 90 minutes. If it is not due to flight delay, we left with very little time to clear the immigration, security screening and locate where the gate is."

Pros: "It was a very good flight ."
Pros: "On time departure system works"
Pros: "Flight was efficient & comfortable. Crew was friendly & helpful."

Than on the way back from Jakarta to KL the flight was late again I just nearly made it for my connnecting flight to Osaka. Overall it was ok but something must be done for delayed flights."
Pros: "Service excellent"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Cue to check-in was ridiculous! Employ more staff so that the wait time is comparable to other airlines. Alcohol - why is there no alcohol on the KUL/BKK leg? I thought that this was an international flight."

Cons: "Not on time"
Pros: "The flight was quick and the service was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and arrived almost one hour later than scheduled arrival."

Pros: "Crew was quick to serve any on-board item I ordered. Happily served with a smile"
Cons: "I’ve been traveling with AirAsia since quite a few years, but recently AirAsia flights are being delayed quite often. This is not how budget airlines usually work. They’re known for their on-time operations. I hope AirAsia works to improve on this issue."
Cons: "the ground crew at departure lounge and arrival lounges are plain stupid. giving wrong info of departure gates. arriving crew didnt open the door .. buzy with handphone"

Cons: "Bigger aircraft"
Cons: "Would be nice to have entertainment"

Cons: "More choices on entertainment"
Cons: "On time"

Cons: "Had to ask someone in terminal about getting our connecting flight"
Pros: "The new seats are good. I didn't get any back pain."
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "We paid $37 to check in 1 Baggage and the flight from SFO to Beijing had delivered the baggage in baggage claim area. We had to take Chinese Visa to get to the baggage, even-though it is a transit. We missed the next connecting flight to Shenzhen as it ate up all our time. Now have to travel in the mercy of the airlines for next flight. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIST THAT "VISA NEEDED IF CHECKING IN BAGGAGE" MISSED ALL FLIGHTS"

Cons: "It was a night flight. Inflight light was on almost throughout the entire flight."
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."
Pros: "Awesome services - on the air and on the ground"
Cons: "Can't think of any"
Pros: "fast and good"
Cons: "seat size"
Pros: "Nice clean plane and efficient staff"
Cons: "We Pre ordered (and paid for) meals when we booked our tickets, having flown Air Asia before we knew what was good and what wasn't. Somehow our orders were lost and we got the 'default' meal on all flights which was sweet and sour chicken meatballs which was almost as awful as it sounds. We heard the same thing happen to the lady in the seat behind us. Staff pretty much ignored our complaint. There's also a weird process with check in where you get processed into a small lounge Pre flight with no food or shops, there doesn't appear to be a reason for this other than making you sit somewhere cramped and uncomfortable for an hour before your 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Plane was delayed twice and nothing was communicated. They where aware that we we missing our connecting flights and promised to give us accomodation overnight a KL. when we arrived at KL there was again no communication and they then told us there was to be no accomodation, they had flat out lied. I after about an hour lining up to get a replacement ticket for the next flight (which took unnecessarily long considering they knew this was happening hours in advance), we went to the airport hotel which I would have booked if they had not lied to me to find that it was booked out."
Cons: "An apppology for a start and hopefully some compensation"
Pros: "Upfront notification of delays"
Cons: "Delayed flight time, not much entertainment in flight"
Cons: "Badly managed check-in queue even for online checked passengers doing bag drop - 3 hours before departure at NAIA 3. There was no announcement from airline staff or anyone for that matter at the gate that the plane will be delayed. Plane departed 2 hours late and sitting in the tarmac with poor cooling inside the plane. Badly managed budget airline."
Cons: "Late. As always."
Cons: "No communication of baggage fees - desperate service"
Pros: "quick check-in and no-nonsense."
Cons: "They were fine."
Pros: "Very punctual departure and arrival."
Cons: "Sadly, despite having printed our boarding pass we were.not allowed through security without a red stamp from Air Asia. This took.two attempts as they printed mine twice and not my husbands. Also check in counters had closed so we used the Sales counter. The staff forgot to give me back our passports and plastic pocket with all.our travel documents in. They were not very competent and not parrocularly polite. At no.point on the boarding pass did it tell us we needed a stamp from check.in. We had handluggage only."
Pros: "I guess it's cheaper."
Cons: "Carriage door was squeeking loudly when it was opened and closed before take off and after arrival. Gave me the creeps. Flight was delayed without prior notice."
Pros: "Nothing anymore"
Cons: "Departed from KL with a carry on, never asked to weigh it or check its size. On the way back from Langkawi, I was asked to weigh the bag since they suddenly implemented a policy of no more than 7kg on board. Told the rude creature that it was ok when I left KL, he said: here in langkawi we are implementing the policy and have nothing to do with KL!! Was asked to check-in my bag, and paid RM79 for the extra 3 kilos. Never flying with them again."
Cons: "Hot air-conditioning"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Boarding was slow, and painful, even though I had checked in online.They charge for everything you take on board. Normally you can take a small suitcase plus rucksack, not so, there is a extra charge for the rucksack. On board I was sick and tired of listening to useless information in 3 different languages about duty free, meals, safety info that was repeated many times.. get on with the flight turn off the light and let people sleep!"
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: "Everything went smoothly on this flight - couldn't ask for more! Checking in at Hong Kong airport was great and fast."
Cons: "Not enough directions signage when arrived in KLIA2."
Cons: "Twice in the same week that AirAsia cancel a flight. They are the worst company ever. When you ask them no one knows anything"
Pros: "Just for budget flights"
Cons: "Seats, boarding, delays"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than 1 hour with all the passengers seated in the plane. They didn't need to board the passengers so early."
Pros: "Nothing. Well it's over now and that's wonderful."
Cons: "Asked for an aisle seat was ignored and given the worst seat last row middle seat not enough legroom to have my knees in front of me I'm 5'7 and my seat doesn't go back so the personI fro t of me reclines so I'm forced to rest my head against this jerk because there's nowhere else for it to go. No entertainment everything costs extra and they even tried to say you couldn't bring any of your own food/drink on board. Worst flight ever."
Cons: "Would be better if they had WIFI on Flight"
Pros: "On time flight. Pleasant attendants"
Pros: "Great service and amazing food !"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Ridiculous that you have to pay for water. No direction for boarding."
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."
Pros: "Good price - efficient transportation"
Cons: "Having to scramble to find money for water. I understand that it is a very well priced airlines but when you are stuck in a plane water would be nice to be free"
Pros: "Love the staff"
Cons: "Everything was expensive"
Cons: "Bag fees not clear and totally unreasonable, no way to check in or check bags online unless you register with their nosy BIG Points. Late by 1.5 hours! Can't get ANYTHING to eat or drink without paying in local currency cash, not even water. Seats squished together and really uncomfortable. Baggage takes a long time to come out. Poor wayfinding at Kuala Lumpur Airport."
Cons: "I was charged $300 for a carry on because it was determined that my carry on was too large (which it was NOT) . charged $18/ kg."
