No food only snacks and drinks and Too short of a flight for any entertainment.

Very cramped. Entertainment poor. How about some old classic films

Flight was on time. Food was ok. Seats didn’t have much arm room but was manageable for a short flight.

Rescheduled my flights without asking me. And I am losing money on reservation

Flew business class. Our luggage was the last to arrive at the belt; 15 minutes after the last bag. Sigh.

Cons: "Seat belt"
Cons: "Boarding on time so I didn’t have to loose the connection flight and had to stay at a hotel an hour away from kuala lumpur to barely sleep to catch a plane to auckland next day that arrives late so i cant take the ferry home."
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: "the food could have been nicer"
Cons: "Avoid Malaysian airlines and avoid KUL airport. What a mess of a company ..."
Pros: "Helping and immediate response."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the in-flight entertainment was fine."

Cons: "Transfer from domestic to international terminal in KL was slow as only 1 customs officer was working"
Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."

Not enough instructions for self-service but no one on the floor to assist people. Arrived at my gate 15mins before boarding time.

Pros: "定刻運行された"
Cons: "ドリンクの値段が高い"

Will definitely use as my airline of choice when travelling in the area..."
Cons: "Too hot - needed cooler air"
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!"

Cons: "boarding was delayed till last minutes before takeoff. no meal included in ticket (ok, it's a lowcoster)."

Pros: "I like the organized way they did the boarding. Less chaotic and allow passengers ample time to board the plane"
Pros: "Great overall economic airline to travel with considering the price paid. I am glad to have the options to NOT pay for the food and entertainment since I never used it during a flight less than 6 hours.

Cons: "No family priority boarding."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was great First time using the inflight entertainment Rokki. Great job Airasia."

Cons: "timing"
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."
Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "- fast boarding - fast bag delivery - can depart earlier if all pax in"
