Pros: "Srilankan Airlines's food was one of the best I've had. I've flown on over 50 airlines and was happy to see that the food was not processed junk as you find in most airlines. The ingredients seemed fresh. The crew were awesome: polite, kind, and considerate. They were eager to accommodate passengers' requests. The jets were new and clean. The entertainment system was touch-screen."

Cons: "Part of the travel was delayed by 2 hours (SIN to COLOMBO) on 22 Dec 2017. Online check-in is bad. I cannot change the pre-selected seat because all shown taken. Must be handled at the counter. So what is the point to do online check-in."

Cons: "Customer service was abismal when I needed to add my infant son to reservations. Spoke with 10 different reps and spent about 2 hours total on the phone. Poor English."
Pros: "Colombo to Male & vice versa by Sri Lankan airlines has been very disappointing to be polite with regard to disgusting food served by them in small cardboard box with no choices whatsoever unlike a standard career nor what they practiced in the past by serving real food chics, not even a cup of tea or copy. Disgracely shocking practice by a national career & not by any means budget airline. Previously Mihiri Air served even better choice of food & drink at moderate prices but price of ticket was at least 50% cheaper. SL Govt with SLA With no regard for passenger comfort nor giving them a reasonabl deal on his sector should be condemned & boycotted. As a regular traveler I will look at Emirates as a better airlines despite with a different time slots still would be cheaper & value FO money. Wake up Sri Lankan Airlines from your slumber"

Clean cabin, efficient crew.
The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.
Flight got delayed and was declared before half an hour. It’s not fair with those who are loyal with Indigo.
The paneer served was so hard.
Check in is a mess. Be ready for a traumatic experience from the unsupportive and rude check in staffs and duty managers at Calicut airport. It’s a chaos and the lines are mostly first in last out, as they don’t care of the passenger well being or the waiting time. They are just concerned of checking in before the boarding call. Personal experience is of standing 2 hours straight just for check in. Flight is ok, food preordered are all the instant ones with hot water mix, which tastes pathetic. Overall, will never take another indigo flight to fly out of india.
Pros: "Seat felt very uncomfortable and as though it was about to break! Very cramped."
Pros: "Basically nothing"
Cons: "They should do announcements properly, and the crew attitude is awful."
Pros: "Worth buying an XL seat Liked the rolling ramp better than steps. Buses to terminal were wuick"
Cons: "Baggage policy for checkin and carryon is too restrictive, too low. Too many email messages sent by IndiGo."
Pros: "Did not take the flight as fell sick. Tried working with vayama and Turkish airlines to reschedule this return flight but quoted cost was higher than original price."
Cons: "An understanding and accommodation based on medical reasoning."
Cons: "The ground crew in Mumbai let on a very drunk group of men who became more and more problematic. Eventually they had to be removed which let to a further delay to an already delayed flight. Bad"
Pros: "Budget Indian airline so was good. Good crew .Bus on and off tarmac , Basic food and paid for but fine. Good legroom in XL seats and std seemed ok too compared to some Australian airlines .Was on time so thats all that really mattered"
Pros: "Crew was great. Back holder of Seats were loose / broken."
Cons: "Connecting Indigo flight was poor as no supply of liquor n beverages. No proper n sufficient food. One cold sandwich was given"
Pros: "Service and staff were brilliant"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment . Plastic pot noodles and rice could be changed to something more environmentally sustainable. Seats not very comfortable."
Pros: "I liked the total travel time the flight took."
Cons: "The boarding suddenly changed the gate just within minutes of the departure & informed none."

Leading aborted close to runway, took of again before touchdown at Chennai, then turned around and landed safely after 15 minutes. No explanation by the crew."
Pros: "The staff tried to be helpful, but they were not."
Cons: "I booked my flight through Kayak, which redirected me to Kiwi.com. They in turn booked my flight and sent me my tickets in an attachment that wouldn't open. When I tried multiple computers, the website said, system down. So I couldn't print my itinerary. Hence, when I got to the airport, they wouldn't let me in. After two hours of people telling me "No no no", someone finally figured out that kiwi had used some unique credit card number under my fellow passenger's name. I had struggled and argued for two hours. Finally someone knew and recognized the issue and helped us. In the nick of time, we were allowed on board."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food choice"
Cons: "The airline was entirely too stringent on weight restrictions for luggage without consideration for long international hauls."
Cons: "I missed the flight coz it was preponed. I had to spend 500 extra dollars on scheduling my international flight."

Cons: "Luggage check-in weighs luggage 22 kilos more than its actual weight and I was asked to pay almost RM650 ~ ($170), when I was asked to recheck they had to pull my luggage back and that took almost 40 minutes to later know that they made a huge mistake! 20 minutes to the boarding time I got confirmation that my luggage weights are correct and given a boarding pass to gate P11. walked to gate P11 and saw no one there, and there were no signs of what was happening, I checked Kayak app then I noticed that they changed the gate to L10 which is a totally different building ( 16 minutes before gate closure ), I had to run the whole airport to go to gate L10. not to mention that flight was delayed by a good 1 hour!"
Cons: "I was sold an empty Marshall 111 box in a sealed Duty Free bag or 136 USD. COMPLAINED WHEN DISCOVER AT HOME THAT NIGHT. SINCE THEN GIVEN THE RUN AROUND"

Cons: "Never been on a flight before, where the pilot pushed back whilst people were still taking their seats. Not very safe!"
Cons: "Delays, and not entertainment"
Cons: "Flight attendant quite slow for delivering food and not many selection food available as usual"
Pros: "Price. Number of flights."
Cons: "The 7kg hardline AFTER doing the document check nearly caused me to miss my flight thus potentially missing a connection. If AsiAsia are going to keep to this 7kg hardline they really need to do it across all airports and do it during the document check so the number of queues costumers are subjected to are minimized. I did purchase extra weight when purchasing the ticket however that weight MUST be in checked bags only. No margin here for discussion. Perhaps HotSeat passengers are less scrutinized??? This all may be just some transitional pains here and other airlines may follow the same model but in my 200+ flights on Nok Air this has NEVER happened. In fact, they (Nok) have NEVER weighed my carry on bag. Such a shame as the rest of the flight experience was above average. This hardline approach will be an issue if they continue until they beat their customers into taking or leaving it in my opinion. First AirAsia flight for me so the vets reading this will be smiling quietly to themselves ;-)"
Cons: "Book it trought kiwi and bought a suitcase of 20 k and air Asia say that it was not in my booking so I had to pay again."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Unable to use airasia app for e-boarding"
Pros: "This is now our airline of choice between KL and Singapore and the next time we fly to Australia we will try flying with Air Asia.

Pros: "Clean aircraft"
Cons: "Two flights in a row behind schedule ; messed up my vegetarian pre ordered food selections in both flights"

Cons: "Offer same type of value food...even worst tasteless"
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The aircraf was brand new"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Boarding was late and terribly disorganized - just a person yelling row numbers who could barely be heard. The airline makes you pay for water, which is simply inhuman - at least cattle in transport are given free water from time to time. It was a five-hour flight at night but we couldn't put the seats back to relax - the exit row was behind us and they've got the seats crammed in so tight together that they don't give the exit row any extra room to accommodate this, like most airlines. There are ads plastered all over the storage compartments. Recorded announcements threatened us with dire consequences if we stole the life vests (is that a thing people do?!). Everything looks cruddy, dingy and old. It feels like a cheap city bus, but in the air. At the end of the flight the crew walked through fumigating the cabin with spray cans of who-the-hell-knows-what and we had to breathe THAT in. We won't even consider Air Asia again unless there are literally no other possible choices. Just awful."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful"
Pros: "Efficient service & great crew"
Pros: "fast and easy"
Cons: "seat comfort and leg room plus they charge for everything extra"
Pros: "Politeness of the crew. Welcoming you with a smile"

Cons: "I was facing lot issues with my baggage as they dropped my baggage at malashiya instead of dropping at my final destination"
Cons: "More than 3h late, no information, gate close (we had to wait in the corridor), nothing to drink during the flight. And I had to pay 80RM just to travel with my umbrella,"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant... they were efficient and organised, modern, smart and 'on it' when necessary. I didn't eat as flights were short... no entertainment although they do have Rokki wifi to watch stuff on phones and tablets... I didn't bother though. Boarding was slick... time lost due to late departure was largely recovered in flight... Aircraft was clean and comfortable. Will definitely use as my airline of choice when travelling in the area..."
Cons: "Too hot - needed cooler air"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, sat on the back row the toilet smelt pretty bad and I had very little leg room, when the guy in front reclined his chair I had to stand up. Prices for food and drink were pretty good."
Pros: "Like food and nice crew"
Cons: "Always worry delay"
Pros: "wifi. while boarding staff try to sort us with seats numbers, good, but the procedure should be improved. friendly staff."

Pros: "On time Arrived early"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "We got to the destination."
Cons: "-fee to check bags -changed gate without updating status board and delayed boarding -though none could be found, cabin smelt like vomit -no food included, charged money for water. Yes, water. -constant (and unnecessary) updates on PA system -often attempted to sell AirAsia branded paraphernalia during flight while everyone was trying to sleep -sprayed an unknown substance into the cabin to "sanitize" just before we landed (insecticide?!). We were given a warning literally 10 seconds before they sprayed it."
