Pros: "Hard landing which gave passangers a shock."
Cons: "Food Seats cramped"
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: "Delayed again. 5 flights of people crammed in gate area 81 - 84. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "food was good and overall good economy class flight"
Cons: "distance between rows seems shorter than other airlines such as Emirates"
Pros: "The cabin crew and this was the only flight that reflects the correct boarding gate on my boarding pass."
Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate."
Cons: "Toilet was not cleaned."
Pros: "There was not much entertainment for kids .. and a"
Cons: "Food was not at all good.. there was not any food at dinner for vegetarians and also for breakfast"
Pros: "Service, free drinks, decent entertainment selection, and the food was actually a little better than edible, the best airline food Ive ever had (I haven't flown many long haul flights)"
Cons: "People don't stop growing at 5'8. There are people taller than that, in fact quite a lot of people are taller than that. So much in this world is made without this consideration in mind. I'm 6'1, I shouldn't have to pay hundreds more just so I have enough legroom. And I don't mean enough to swing my legs about as much as I want, just enough to be comfortable. This isn't essential on short flights, but just seems cruel to taller people on long flights."
Pros: "The crew were friendly although some of the announcement was not clear."
Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "I like their timely service and cleanliness."
Cons: "Very uncomfort flight, very bad timing, Food is not good"
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Nothing unremarkable"

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!"
Cons: "I fell asleep during the meal serving. Instead of waking me up or putting my meal on my tray, it wasn't served at all."
Cons: "On both flights, i did not get the seats i had specifically booked..."

Pros: "They left on time"
Cons: "Website is a debacle, asked to preorder meals for business but can't, can't check in on line, business menu was limited, what was on the menu wasn't offered. Seats are uncomfortable, short & narrow. In general for the amount of money paid for business, it's the worst yet"
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"

Pros: "The plane was decent. The offering on the IFE was a good mix. Food was ok"
Cons: "The IFE froze. I alerted the crew but it took them nearly 1.5 hours to do a reset of the system. I barely managed to watch a movie and only managed that due to the fact that I had my own earphones. They collect their headsets way too early."
Pros: "Short trip 50 mins"
Cons: "our vegan food was not provided"
Pros: "First experience with Malaysian. Really good. On time both boarding and take off. Food to my liking, perhaps spicy to others. Crew were polite and did their job well. Over all good and service and experience more than expected."
Cons: "Was looking forward to see and experience new KLIA. Had heard about it, perhaps, 10-15 years back. Not that great, bit crampy. Open seating near gates is current style. Toilets are bad, truly Asian!"
Pros: "The korean spicy chicken was delicious!"
Cons: "The 2 male flight attendants who served our rows did not smile once. Very unfriendly and seemed like they just wanted to do the minimum. We were also extremely unhappy that during check in was advised that our seats were not allocated together when we booked the tickets together and are also Enrich frequent flyer members. We had to demand to speak to a manager for them to change our seats."
Pros: "The seats are good recently"
Cons: "Delayed for around 25mins. Boarding is getting worst recently; either chaotic or implementing the new stupid policy of boarding according to seat letters."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Crew were not responsive, lacked initiative and had an upsetting attitude when serving. Food was stale, toilets had pee on the floor: Stewardess didn't bother to clean up, she just sprayed an air freshener instead."
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: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Not on time"
Cons: "MH 0178 to KL was late and I arrived to KL at 9.30am. My transit flight already gone and the airport crew directed me another gate and gave me a new ticket for MH 0717 at 10.40 am."
Pros: "Crew always pleasant on this route."
Cons: "This route used to have new planes with AVOD at each seat but the airline seems to have switched back to old planes which really should be kept for domestic sectors"
Pros: "the girl next to me was flirty"
Cons: "the girl next to me could have offered her number..."
Pros: "Checking in goes well"
Cons: "after booking, air asia changed the flight schedule back teo hours. Then on travel day the flight was delayed another hour. So we arrived around midnight. Air Asia Is somewhat annoying as they’re always trying to sell you something during the flight"

Cons: "Would be nice to have entertainment"

Pros: "The flight i booked has 2 segments and both by Air Asia. However, when arrived in KL, i was forced to exit term"
Pros: "Prompt boarding, leather seats with reasonable leg room, even with seat in front reclined. Efficient, friendly and professional stewards"
Cons: "Had to ask someone in terminal about getting our connecting flight"
Cons: "this is the first international flight that charges you money for everything on board. hungry? purchase food. thirsty? pay for the water as well. even for the check-in luggage, you have to pay. so pay a little more and book a nicer-better airline. the crew is not professional and does not understand how to talk to clients properly. I am well aware of the fact that clients are often over demanding in the services they are being provided and rarely appreciative of the crew that does everything to make your journey pleasant. However on all the four Airasia flights from Delhi Kuala Lumpur Phuket, the overall attitude of the crew members was not nice."
Cons: "Was taken aback at the baggage fee and the low amount they give you - 12.5kg before charging is pretty low."
Cons: "Always delay!!!!"
Pros: "Where is my bag. Please find my bag because many thing inside it."
Cons: "Fail tu makesure customer bag arrival safely"
Cons: "It was a night flight. Inflight light was on almost throughout the entire flight."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 6 hours and when we make inquiry they keep saying will update soon. On top of that, after informing that I'm vegetarian they still insisted me to take kfc. Ended up having wedges and bun."
Pros: "Crews are ok in general"
Cons: "I was detained at the ticket cutting counter because I carried extra plastic back for purchase at the airport. Apparently in HK they have absurd rules saying that you can only have 2 bags carry on. Any extra has to be charges. I never have that kind of rules before using Air Asia at the other country, especially we buy some presents at the airport. I end up throwing a few items away because I can't squeeze in everything in my carry on bag. I will no longer take Air Asia for the Hong Kong Route."
Cons: "Worst experience. Flight delayed more than 4 hrs and staff. Couldn’t accommodate us. Please make announcement that names must be given to accommodate people if you guys going to place people in such a way. Do not make us wait and finally say no more flight. That’s absurd."
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."
Cons: "13 hour delay worst flight ever"
Pros: "Fuss free Friendly crew Pay for service"
Cons: "Tight seats Food comes in small portions Website user experience"
Cons: "Aircraft arrived slightly late"
Pros: "Missed flight because the Air Asia app could not process my boarding pass. Had to leave my arrival Terminal 1 to pass through Immigration to reach Terminal 2 because Air Asia has no counter in Yerminal 1. All this led to a time consuming exercise and missed counter check-in time. Terrible experience."
Pros: "BOARDING very smooth n fast...more importantly punctuation very good"
Cons: "Value meal lousy (pocket pie)..both flight offer Same pocket pie,Rokki can't use at all..i notice cabin crew didn't check whether passengers apply seating belt at all."
Pros: "The Aircraf was brand new"
Pros: "Good landing despite bad turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was damn cold and freezing"
Pros: "friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "delayed flights"
Pros: "Awesome services - on the air and on the ground"
Cons: "Can't think of any"
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: "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"
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 attention to our needs. I booked a wheelchair for my mom from manila to bkk. No wheelchair was provided from malaysia to bkk. I even push my mom in manila airport coz they said they dont have enough staff. My mom had a stroke and she walked all the way in kuala lumpur. What a lousy airline you have"
Cons: "No communication of baggage fees - desperate service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
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: "Crew was welcoming and appreciative at start and end but that's about it... After announcement to prepare for take off... Two crew members passed the lady beside me with a big bag on her lap ... I had to ask another member passing for the 3rd time to advise her to store properly... This is needed for take off and caution as I was sitting beside her."
Cons: "Did not like the boarding procedures... Needs a bit more organization for efficiency and that the passengers know where to go when... Hate change was done via word of mouth from other passengers... The que process was all together and no structure... Room for improvement is certainly there. Its a budget Airline so I'm not expecting food or entertainment. But I was majorly annoyed with baggage policy!! This was the most rediculous of all! I payed more for my bags to follow me than I did for the plane ticket?!?! I was trying tirelessly to add bags to my flight before hand but system gave errors etc and I even tried the live chat again errors so no choice but to do this at airport for a ridiculously expensive cost. I was not happy and will think twice about this. I even considered taking the later air Malaysia flight with my bags included. If I had only known :("
Pros: "Cabin crew ok Check in online nice E-boarding pass nice"
Cons: "Boarding by zone is not effective. Wifi in boarding room in jakarta was too slow"
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"
Pros: "We reached our destination"
Cons: "When researching flights, I really wish AirAsia's procedures were spelled out. Having to pay for each checked bag and each kg over a relatively low allowance was extremely annoying. Even worse, each leg of the flight (due to a layover) required payment. In addition, paying for the seat, paying for peanuts and water?? Probably the worst was the air crew refusing to give a blanket to my freezing fiance without purchasing the pillow, blanket and eye mask bundle. Seriously?? Then towards the end of the flight, the crew walk the aisles holding alcohol and perfume trying to peddle their duty-free products on the plane itself. It was quite evident by this point that the competitve ticket price is a hoax, and all that they are interested in is getting as much money from you as possible. Unless I have no choice, I will never fly this airline again. Please, warn people of these practices BEFORE they purchase the tickets!!"
Pros: "There was nothing to like. Literally!"
Cons: "Delayed for more than 9 hours, which ruined a complete day of my trip. When inquired from local office, they were clueless and was really rude. We could not do the web checking as there was a error in the site and we ended up paying more than 3 times what we were supposed to pay for baggage."
