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: "Very smooth and easy process boarding and taking off"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Changed the time of my flight early by more than 2 hours, with no communication. I therefore missed the flight. I was informed there was a flight that evening but they refused to move me as I had booked through an agent. Waited more than 6 hoursnin the airport for next flight and was offered only a meal voucher worth £4. Later flight was delayed, resulting in me missing my friends pre wedding henna party and arriving more than 8 hours late. Not a single apology given!"
Pros: "Except for a 1-hour delay, overall the flight was good, smooth and enjoyable. Loved the inflight meal. For the price we paid we got meal and 30kg baggage allowance, we thought that was just value for money. And they departed from KLIA and not klia2 which is more convenient."

Pros: "Getting out of the plane"

Cons: "Seems like Malindo is starting to degrading the service quality. The flight I took before: they change the airplane to batik which was worse with no entertainment, smaller seat pitch, etc. I book Malindo for a reason and paid for what expected using Malindo!! If they had to change the plane they should've given better one or given back compensation to passengers! Now this flight, they didn't activate the entertainment till way later and turned off way too early. They didn't give any earphone as supposed to. Malindo's service has become bad."
Cons: "The airline"
Pros: "For the price that we paid, it included 30kg baggage and refreshment (orange juice, water, coffee, a slice of pizza and a muffin) - it was worth it. The legroom is spacious, the seat was comfortable and the cabin crew was awesome.

Pros: "I have flown Malindo before and I have been happy about tbeir customer service."
Pros: "In flight meal."
Cons: "Got told luggage would go straight to bali from origin in Nepal. Waited at baggage check in jarkata just in case. Sure enough, our baggage comes out. Transfer to domestic terminal was almost impossible since we were given no information and our flight number changed completely. All of a sudden it was batik air not malindo, which has a completey different terminal. Will not be travelling with malindo again."
Pros: "Check in and boarding we're both quick and easy. There were unsold exit row seats on our flight and the flight attendants lets us change seats. The in flight meals were quite tasty."

Cons: "Dinner was only one piece of pizza That’s it"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Left late with no explanation"
Pros: "The boarding process was really fast and efficient."

Pros: "Very quick transfer of my luggages in KL"
Cons: "All good, short flight"
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."
Cons: "Worst food ever."
Cons: "Malaysian is known the world over for its great food. It's a pity Malaysia Airlines MH=Malaysian Hospitality doesn't extend to serving simple, good food. The pastry was nothing but a lump of dough with tasteless fillings, and the main meal was atrocious. Everything else was mediocre, except the crew, who were friendly and warm as always,"
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."
Cons: "The Business class seats are very uncomfortable. There's just no leg room space when the seats are flat and its very suffocating."
Pros: "On time takeoff, landed early....everything was smooth"
Pros: "Satay, flatbed."
Cons: "No amenities kit, no mattress pad, no champagne, no menu for business class. And the forgot to serve the main course of my travelling partner."

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?!"
Cons: "There wasn't a food preference option when booking through kayak."
Pros: "We arrived at the counter 1:50 before scheduled departure. The queue took 55 minutes for us to reach the counter. We were told then we should have rushed the counter to clear the 1 hour hurdle. There was no approach by staff to warn the waiting queue to do this. We were given boarding passes and told to try our luck taking the luggage through security and try gate baggage check. We made the plane 20 minutes before scheduled departure"
Cons: "Very old plane equipment Short seat pitch limits economy class passenger comfort"
Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "The entertainment, seat spacing"
Cons: "The gate"
Pros: "Nothing at all!"

Cons: "Bags didn't arrive at the destination"
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: "I got there eventually"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Nothing unremarkable"
Pros: "Flight was on time - to the detriment of my late connecting MAS flight from DAR"

Cons: "Rude staff on ground and cabin crew. Delayed. Lost baggage. Terrible customer service. I would never fly again."
Pros: "Just fly."
Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."
Pros: "Staff are courteous"
Cons: "Departure was delayed an hour"
Pros: "Flight was efficient & comfortable. Crew was friendly & helpful."
Pros: "The boarding and entertainment..."
Cons: "The food... and the lack of announcement to advise us on the delay"
Pros: "spacious seat at row 5"

Cons: "Check in counter not enough resulting in very very long queue and check in time"
Cons: "Flight canceled last minute! Lost my connection back home. Still no news about pay back. Had to book another flight on my own expense."
