Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination.

When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage .

Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little...

Cons: "Two flights in a row behind schedule ; messed up my vegetarian pre ordered food selections in both flights"
Pros: "Seat & food"
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable."
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."
Pros: "Quick easy and simple. Staff were very friendly."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "You don't even get water"
Pros: "Boarding quickly when plane finally arrived"
Cons: "The reader board still said planned departure at wrong gate. When asked the staff said they "tried" to change it. Additional full security check before gate left all anxious and some panicked about making the flight. Add on charges- ticket no longer budget. Will avoid AirAsia in the future."
Pros: "wifi. while boarding staff try to sort us with seats numbers, good, but the procedure should be improved. friendly staff."
Cons: "boarding was delayed till last minutes before takeoff. no meal included in ticket (ok, it's a lowcoster)."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "We paid a small fortune for the couple of kilograms we were over our 15kg allowance."
Pros: "Value for money. Excellent service. On time arrival."
Cons: "It was one hour late"
Pros: "New aircraft A320-200 NEO"
Cons: "Flight delay without information. Delay almost 1:45hrs."
Cons: "I was not allowed on board due to absence of a transit visa for HongKong (I had few hours transit there before my next flight back to EU). I am allowed to stay up to 48h in HK airport for transit without any visa, I had to quickly find and purchase the flight ticket to HK with another airlines, with them it was no problem to fly to HK for transit. All other few flights with AirAsia were bad as well. We were refused to get water as a complimentary during a log flight from HK to Manila. Every flight was always delayed up to ~1 h."
Pros: "Walking straight through security and into the plane.... (due to online check in and just bringing my carry on)"
Cons: "The 20 minute delay which they did not announce. I know it's delayed because I can see the pilots at the gate.."
Pros: "Ease of web checkin but it took too long to drop off luggage"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Had to buy food including all beverages."
Cons: "All thing baaaaad"
Pros: "we got to the destination"
Cons: "rude and unfriendly crew. freezing climate. super cramped seating. and they charge for water. it was a human cattle call. horrible."
Pros: "Same as for earlier flight"
Cons: "Same comment as above"
Cons: "Rather uncomfortable seating - very little legroom, and seat angle promotes back pain."
Cons: "I have flight from kualalumpur to Guangzhou ,there was no whight on tickets, I booked through Kayak web site , Only 15 kg per person is avaliable and for fees , At low fare , I have to pay twice my ticket price for I didnt book my whight before flight online ,. ? ? Flight was 4 hours to Gungzhou , no meals on board , not even a glass of water . You have to pay again on board for your food , and drinks , I feel like traviling in a low degree shattel bus , in a very very poor quality ."
Cons: "Air Asia not only charged me for luggage at check-in, but charged me TWICE for the same piece of luggage, stating that since I was flying "two segments" they had to charge me two times, though my luggage and I were going to one destination (with a layover in between). Never again will I fly this airline."
Pros: "Hard to complain about a $100 USD flight."
Cons: "KLIA 2 does take some time to get from the entrance to the gate. Once at the gate though the flight was delayed 45 minutes."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, no complimentary drinks or food."
Cons: "No drinking water!"
Pros: "cant think of anything."
Cons: "the air asia klia2 terminal is a dump. the gate seats are rock hard/uncomfortable. the air con in the terminal was set too cold. I think the check-in baggage fee was too high. if I would have ordered food the price would have been close to ctrip fairs, and on those flights u might get entertainment. I don't think I saved that much to not consider other carriers next time."
Pros: "I didn't like any thing"
Cons: "Free kg is 15 kg which isn't enough at all"
Cons: "was charged $72 at the airport to check my bag. I have not flown with Air Asia before and I did not know that I would not be able toa check my bag for free, let alone have to pay $72. I was disgusted. Air Asia should make their baggage fees more visible and honest so when a customer books a flight, they can take those fees in to consideration. Space inside the cabin is very limited. For tall people it is difficult to spread legs as the knees touch the seat in front. Luggage was missing when I arrived at my destination without any compensation to buy first necessity articles."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "They didn't even put my bag on the plane, they left it in the transit airport in Kuala Lumpur. I got my bag 24 hours later."
Pros: "Low price...friendly, courteous, helpful staff..."
Cons: "No free food or drink...not even water. Tightest seating I've ever experienced. No in flight entertainment. No alcohol available whatsoever. Chaotic boarding by passengers crawling all over one another reminds one of the clambering patrons at popular night markets. Considerable flutter and vibration in port side main flap. Excessive blow by of bleed air into cabin at start up (heavy jet fuel odor inside). Somewhat sketchy landing...but not too bad considering heavy crosswind combined with good old fashioned seat of the pants flying (no computer aided landing assists here). All in all a decent flight for around these parts I guess...I mean at least the thing wasn't brush painted with house paint...been there before."
Cons: "Curt treatment at check-in."
Cons: "Not enough room"
Cons: "Provide free water"
Pros: "We finally made it to destination"
Cons: "The flight was turned around halfway to destination due to technical problem. Understandable and acceptable. However very little assistance was given to us once back in KUL while waiting for new flight. Zero compensation given, not even a free soda on the new flight! Hey Air Asia, its called a voucher! Never did get the meals we had paid for in advance when booking. Will avoid this cheap skate airline in the future."
Pros: "Easy and simple....hope it will be like this in the future flights as well...."
Cons: "The cabin had an unpleasant smell"
Cons: "Everything was terrible service timeliness food baggage terrobke"
Pros: "It arrived"
Cons: "Small seats, long boarding times, unclear baggage fees, and delays."
Cons: "The transfer staff did not know anything about the options airasia sent us concerning the 12-hour delayed flight"
Pros: "Low rate"
Cons: "Pay additional , very bad experisnce bags weight only 7 kg"
