Cons: "I’m just a BIG guy so space is my overall complaint. But as my first experience with AirAsia, it has not been a great one. First my initial flight kept being delayed and delayed until it was actually canceled. Then my second leg of my vacation trip, again, delayed and they just had us standing in line waiting to board our flight. Again I give praise to the wonderful crew members for the stellar and comforting service. They truly are the reason I have not given up on AirAsia just yet. Now I do have one leg left, my tip home...I’m hoping that this one will be the overall best experience for my AirAsia. I’m praying for an on time departure, and another wonderful staff and just a tiny bit more leg space. Wish me luck"

Pros: "On time both times. Ground staff especially very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing we didn’t really not like"
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 ;-)"

Pros: "Clean and crew"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. Not worth it."

Pros: "Crews are quite friendly"
Cons: "Certain Crew is unable to do simple math calculation even though she is using calculator. I was purchasing food and gave Malaysian Ringgit, little that I know, the change is given in Rupiah and the amount was wrong, it was short of 55,000. Luckily I did a little math calculation my own, and find that she was over-charging too much for the food. Realizing that particular crew can't calculate, I offer to pay using Rupiah, she rejected it and gave me back the proper change. The exchange rate on board is absurd!!! I suggest use local currency if anyone would do onboard purchasing on AirAsia."
Pros: "We boarded and landed on-time without a hitch. I didn't prepaid or order any food but it did smell good."
Cons: "No entertainment on the aircraft."
Cons: "Never flew due to volcano - fair enough. But communication from the airline was utterly non-existent, as was any kind of service and support for rescheduling etc. Confusing messages on their website and refusal to fly despite other airlines having no issue - because they didn't want to pay parking rates at AU airports. Air Asia ruined my holiday far more than Mt Agung."

Pros: "Landing 20mins early."
Cons: "Going by bus to & from the plane. Waiting for luggage"
Cons: "Delay of one hour Delay announced was 20 minutes and no further announcements were made about additional delays Maybe some refreshments could have been served to compensate for delay at least"
Pros: "Cheap flight, landing at T2"
Cons: "Walking on the Tarmac or busing to the plane, flight delayed 25m without an update till past actual departure time, seatbelt light on for almost entire flight-when are passengers given a chance to use the bathroom? The value meal (sandwiches) was very basic and exactly the same for both departing & return flights. My 4yo could pull out the table from its tracks-He's not exactly he-man."
Cons: "They charged me $186.43 USD"
