Three hour delay on a 1.2 hour flight. Ground staff made us wait in the boarding area for around 2 hours even though the aircraft hadn't even arrived yet. No updates, no refreshments - not even water. Then we finally boarded to discover MH wasn't even doing meal service on this sector anymore. Just a bag of peanuts and tiny cup of orange juice. So close to five hours without serving water!
Flew business class. Our luggage was the last to arrive at the belt; 15 minutes after the last bag. Sigh.
Cons: "Dinner was only one piece of pizza That’s it"
Pros: "Comfort & punctuality"
Cons: "No entertainment facilities available even in business class"

Cons: "Security check at gate without priority Bagage Delivery business class"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Very old plane."
Cons: "The KUL to DPS leg was on one of the oldest planes I’ve flown. A 737 with no seat back screens. They handed out 2 inch thick “tablets” in Business class, with no touch screen and only a handful of 10 year old movies."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth ride, easy boarding"
Pros: "Lovely people an caring all the way through."
Pros: "Pleasant steward"
Cons: "Delayed and waste time at Jakarta airport"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Everything. Just a simple, very short haul flight: nothing too complicated."
Cons: "There was nothing to fault."
Pros: "Crew on board did their best."
Cons: "Because of an accident at Manila, all flights were delayed. This can happen, but the information provided by ground staff was far below standard. I assume they have procedures in place to inform passengers, and to make any estimations and guidance on what to do next. Absolutely no courtesy for passengers with connecting flights with different airliners. Usually, MH is a professional organisation, but this was an all time low in their service. Sorry."
Pros: "I was surprised to board an A380 to fly from KUL to BKK"
Cons: "In Bangkok we had to get off on the field to board a bus"
Pros: "The seat I got was certainly comfortable enough."
Cons: "The staff was not enough particular in delivering appropriate food to correct people. In flight KL to Auckland, vegan food was served when Indian vegetarian food was requested. Long queues at boarding in KL."
Pros: "Nice thick comfortable blankets. Delicious food."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. . The food bland but warm. But the seats were microscopic"
Cons: "Seats were tiny. My knees pressed to seat in front of me. I’m 73 inches tall"
Pros: "The cabin crew."
Cons: "Again, incorrect information of boarding gate."
Cons: "Prebooking a seat with Malaysian Airlines requires calling KL office which is always busy. It costs a lot if calling from the US, in addition to paying for the seats. It really turned me off."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "One of our luggage was delayed during transit."
Cons: "Cabin crew were unprofessional and not much caring Food was rubbish"
Pros: "Acceptable in general. Food (ran out of option, only fish curry left in row 20's), enterteinment, comfort (empty seats)."
Cons: "Attitude by attendants can be improved."
Cons: "Initial flight was one hour late....almost missed my connecting flight, bags didn't make it to my destination. Not much help or info given about the late flight and how to connect to the next flight. First plane was old and beat-up."

Cons: "Check in- only 2 desks open."
Pros: "Smooth flight with usual good in flight service. No issues during flight. check in very smooth and baggage collection very quick"
Pros: "Good service and timely operation"
Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Poor quality food especially the breakfast "snack". Unable to take water on board and tiny serves of water and other drinks left us dehydrated. Far too many ads at the start of entertainmen. Repeated for each selection."
Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights were delayed for hours. Terrible."
Pros: "I like having my knees up in my eyeballs on a plane and having to be pried out of my seat with the jaws of life at the conclusion of a flight."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours late!"
Pros: "This was a comfortable flight with nice staff and great food and entertainment choices"
Cons: "No 12 1/2 hour flight can be ideal but this was good deal."
Pros: "Efficient and quick to load the plane and then take off."
Pros: "Free beer and wine. Good inflight entertainment. Food ok."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and not enough leg room for someone 6'02". They ran out of the chicken meal and I was stuck with the fish which wasn't that great."
Pros: "Free beer and wine. For breakfast the egg dish wasn't bad. Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable after a few hours, not good for long flights. Seats have very little leg room so for someone over 6 foot tall it will not be comfortable."
Pros: "I appreciated the free baggage allowance and the staff were nice, but otherwise they were a huge headache to fly."
Cons: "They changed the times on BOTH of our flights by HOURS, which resulted in me having to buy a ticket with another airline to ensure we wouldn't miss our connecting international flight. Horribly unreliable, will never fly them again. Honestly airAsia was a better experience than with Malaysia Air"
Pros: "I actually thought the seats were pretty comfy. And they have in flight entertainment, no need to download an app or anything."
Cons: "Wish I had known there would be a meal on the short flight. I usually request a vegetarian meal so I couldn't do it this time."
Pros: "Prompt and great service."
Pros: "Clean and entertainment good!"
Cons: "Food is mediocre, even for airplane food."
Pros: "Food so-so. Cabin crew friendly and helpful. IFE was easy to use but film choices were quite limited."
Cons: "Lousy configuration in business class requiring you to clamber over other sleeping passengers to get to the loo. A380 really showing its age. Toilets not well-maintained, toilet rolls not replaced."
Pros: "- On Time - Nice to include buns or bread for breakfast - Staffs should be more gracious and engaging."
Cons: "- Landing was rough and sudden - Hot drinks only served at the end of meal. It should be served together with meal. - Row 17 was last to be served. Rather hungry especially on transit flight from Singapore - No transit lounge and refreshments"
Pros: "Much better than Air Asia of course."
Cons: "I dont know about the weather condition but I did feel a rough landing. I do feel the standard of the cabin crew deteriorating. Unlike few years back."
Cons: "Had a transit flight through KL from Colombo to Bali. The luggage was not with me and my friend along with about 7-10 others post arrival in Bali. We received the luggage after losing almost one day eating into our holiday. Minor compensation was given but the inconvenience was far more! This is not the KL to colombo flight but thought i will write it in here as I got this through Kayak"
Pros: "Aero bridge availability"
Cons: "Choice to meals like McD mix and match. Can choose other combination of same value"
Pros: "No and No! Seat was cramped. Crew was ok"
Cons: "If they weren’t always on the PA. I was trying to read and someone was always talking"

Pros: "Very good for the price I paid"
Cons: "Somehow I couldn't check in online, or at the kiosk. There was only 2 check-in desk for domestic flights in KLIA2. Long lines and waited 20 minutes. Thankfully the staff at the counter allowed me to check in, despite having only 50 minutes to spare."
Pros: "good budget airline."
Cons: "seats are very close, legroom is uncomfortable"
Pros: "correct priority of boarding respected luggage handling very fast"
Cons: "quality of food"
Cons: "I didn’t have any food so am unable to comment on this"
Cons: "I was charged $183 USD for the same bag that was free on Malaysian airlines. Huge extortion rip off."
Cons: "no food. maybe ok for this price. boarding: why i had to checkin twive while using 1 carrier? that was mentioned on the ticket, but I oversaw that when was ordering ticket on website"
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "No food or drinks. But that was expected as we didn’t pay for it"

Pros: "we arrived almost half hour ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Personnel very young and friendly - they seem to enjoy their job!"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed over half an hour and we had to stand because the gate area in Penang was too small."
Cons: "They changed the time without announcing anyone. Each day the flight is at a different time."
Pros: "On time (early on the return leg). Interesting usage of onboard wifi to deliver inflight entertainment. The choices of the channels was mediocre. Nevertheless, a good start."
Cons: "Same food (on return leg) with no other choices choice with the value pack add-on. Pasta was overcooked."
Cons: "Aircraft arrived slightly late"
Pros: "Nice place fun"
Cons: "Well it's alright"
Pros: "Good landing despite bad turbulence."
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."
Pros: "On this one particular leg of the flight from KUL to KIX, this has got to be the best looking crew ever in my 50+ years of flying, both male and female attendants. The girls are gorgeous, practically models. Almost makes up for the lack of on-board entertainment."
Pros: "fast and good"
Cons: "seat size"
Cons: "Late flight, not enough announcements"
Pros: "Being updated of the status of flight periodically"
Cons: "Airport was crowded. As many other flights were delayed too."
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: "I guess it's cheaper."
Cons: "Carriage door was squeeking loudly when it was opened and closed before take off and after arrival. Gave me the creeps. Flight was delayed without prior notice."
Pros: "Had to book with Airasia since its fares were lower compared to the others."
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Cons: "I was charged over $200 for luggage overweight because I did not purchase it at time of booking. That's disgraceful. They should make it clear for people outside Asia who are not familiar with their policies what they should do to avoid these charges Jackie"
Pros: "Turnaround is fast, efficient boarding."
Cons: "State of cabin may not be 100%, due to same fast turnaround."
Pros: "Competitive price, good regional carrier, especially short flights."
Cons: "There were confusion trying to check in before obtaining the boarding pass at the KL airport. After that, everything went well."
Pros: "Fast & on schedule"
Pros: "Nothing special and as expected of the low cost flight"
Cons: "None so far"
Pros: "In the US most recognize Southwest Airlines as an efficient low-cost carrier. AirAsia is all that with nice aircraft AND comfortable assigned seats."
Cons: "If your going to check a bag you can do it easily at the airport and you will pay per pound/kilo. If you know the approximate weight you can do it in advance on-line and save time. Example: 40 kilos /80 lbs was $40 usd."
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."
Cons: "I arrive 50 min before the traveling , they refuse to open for me the pord and they charge me 1000 MR just to travel in the next flight Also I pay for the baggage throw the website , but it is not shown in the system"
The crew was very attentive, friendly and efficient.
Pros: "The crew was excellent, especially the stewardesses."
Cons: "Their wifi service is ridiculously expensive $32 and it doesn't work."
Cons: "arrived one hour before flight, all counter staff had disappeared. On-line check-in was not available as an option, could not get checked in and as a result missed my flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Please be punctual if can’t be earlier."
Pros: "The leg room"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "The crew were super patient (a must when dealing with the quality of passengers from Trichy who were lacking in manners and etiquette)."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. The majority of passengers seem to not be used to the normal manners and etiquette of queuing and it was chaotic with pushing. Some discipline and order needs to be enforced by ground crew (and this will no doubt make the cabin crews' lives easier)."
Pros: "Enjoyed buying extended leg room"
Cons: "Water should be a standard on a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "The flight was smooth despite bouts of turbulence. The crew ensured everyone was strapped in and the pilot made a prior announcement before flight take-off. Most Pilots don’t."
Cons: "The check-in process took extremely Long as there were only two counters open. The boarding process was a joke. Despite the announcement to board by rows, there was no enforcement whatsoever and it was free for all."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Flight was late."
Cons: "Flight with Scoot are not very well organized. for as large a fleet and number of flight locally should be better. no onboard entertainment nor refreshments. Staff not very personable either."
Pros: "Nothing. We had to sit on the runway for an 1 hour 40 mins. Staff didn’t even give away water, you had to purchase it... outrageous"
Pros: "GREAT CREW AS ALWAYS THE SEAT WAS COMFORTABLE AS ALWAYS."
Cons: "FOOD WAS ORDINARY NOT WHAT I ORDERED, MY NEIGHBOR IN THE CHAIR OPPOSITE HAD WHAT I WANTED AND IT LOOKED DELICIOUS"
Cons: "Allow us to upgrade class"
Pros: "Can't complain"
Cons: "Cheaper? :) !"
Pros: "Head rest not comfortable. Short distance okay not long one."
Cons: "Plane is old i think. Take off and landing time plane some shaky and sound not pleasant."
Pros: "Extremely rude."
Cons: "I got sick on the flight from some food poisoning and the crew acted put out when I asked for some water."
Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to board the plane because my passport only had five months left on it but you still let me book the flight and I was not refunded"
Cons: "The flight cancelled.first we boarded twice and been waiting for 7 hours Inside and outside the plane thereafter they gave up and decided to cancel it ..it was nightmare"
Pros: "There is nothing to say this is a no frills airline and that is what you get. Departure was on time and arrival was also on time. Food on any airline isn’t good at least on airline i fly. The important thing is getting there safely and this airline company does that."
Pros: "Everything worked"
Pros: "It was a good flight"
Cons: "The long delay......"
Cons: "Unfair policy of no outside food, treating its customers in a captive state; cabin is dirty with little cleaning work done. Won't fly if it were not cheap."
Pros: "Crew were professional, friendly and efficient. Aircraft was clean in the cabin and in good serviced condition. Check in Staff were efficient, friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seating configuration in economy very small. My Husband is a tall, big man and was cramped by the seat pitch, which made his trip very uncomfortable. To think that we have to pay for such an essential item to life as WATER, when it is free on most other airlines....or at the very least you can get a glass of water. I couldn’t believe the charge price for a tiny bottle of water and the fact that you can’t even get a glass of water either. This is an outrage and a rip off to customers."
Cons: "I didn't realise I was going to be in such a poor airline after booking through the Singapore Airlines website. There was hardly any space, food options were limited, there was no entertainment, they even charged for water! Equal worst airline with jetstar"
Pros: "Nice aircraft, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "reclining seats only in business class, not lay flat. pay for everything except the bathroom"
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "No TV on plane"
Pros: "i did not see any entertainment."
Cons: "The process to check and pay for a bag at the airport was ridiculous. We waited in line to check the bag, found out that since we hadn't paid for it ahead of time, we could get the bag checked but would need to go stand in a new line to pay for it and could not have the bag tag until this was done. Then the new line only had one agent working all of the people who needed to pay for their bags. When we got to the front, we were asked to pay the bag fee with a credit card and the processing fee in cash. Since we were only connecting in Singapore, of course we did not have cash. She could not process the charge, walked us over to a new desk and a new line where they processed the bag charge without the cash fee (how this wasn't done initially, I have no idea) and finally, we were finished with the check in process an hour later."
Cons: "Everything but the price. Worst customer service ever!!!"
Pros: "Affordable biz class"
Cons: "Really poor food and flight was delayed 2 hours both ways"
Cons: "If they have a policy that passengers cant eat food bought outside the aircraft they should make sure that they have variations/choices on their menu. I can only eat fish but they dont have it on their menu so i brought my own food but the crew asked me to stop eating it because it was not allowed. Im hungry and tired and was upset that time."
Pros: "The departure time was delayed but the crew made every effort to arrive on time. Kudos to the pilots. The cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "I get that it’s a budget flight, so no frills. I wasn’t expecting bottled water but at least offer some water in a cup. The water bottles being sold was expensive and too small. They encourage us to stay hydrated but not everybody can keep shelling out money for water, and strictly no outside food or drinks. Can they at least allow us to bring water, short flights not so much a problem but long flights, not so good for that strict rule."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "How can the the airline serve such terrible food that smells of processed plastic!!! It is served burning hot and unedivle."
Cons: "They lied about baggage costs My flight on scoot from blr to Singapore was 2 hrs delayed and no reason"
Pros: "Relaxed boarding and inflight experience Offer of refreshments when baggage delivery was delayed"
Cons: "Delay in delivering baggage"
Cons: "I could not get on time at airport for check in, because the train got stuck 25min. When I got the counter 45min. Before the flight leaves, they told me that the flight is closed and they can not do anything to help me!!!"
Pros: "QUIET ZONE"
Cons: "FLIGHT AIR CON TO COLD NOT ENOUGH TOILETS"
Cons: "I get the seat selection pre-check in is a premium service. Bu to not allow someone to express preference (based on what's left) when they check in is downright snarky. The explanation that I got that "we need to balance the plane" is whitewash. It's clearly to push peopel to buying the premium service. But when you do that at the price of alienating people, you've done them and yourself a disservice. Time to rethink!"
Pros: "Scoot Business is excellent value for money. 35 seats at the front of a Dreamliner with comfortable seats and some recline. The flight took off on time and landed in Sydney on time. I will go again."
Cons: "Not much really. It does not compare with Business on the national carriers but at half the price what do you expect?"
Cons: "The seat and tray table is greasy and dirty and there are two cracked holes in the arm rest!"
Pros: "Early alert that flight was going to be 5 hours late."
Cons: "No online check- in. Very slow check in at airport. Vouchers provided for food at airport - only problem was we couldn’t find a place that would take them. Boarding was painfully late and slow. As we arrived in the early hours of the morning the cost of taxis were double the normal price. Still no compensation as promised by the airline when they initially advised us of the late flight. Could do a lot better."
Pros: "On time. Service on board simple. Crews are friendly"
Cons: "Boarding was quite messy as flight was delayed but many passengers were not informed. Only one service officer was being bombarded with questions from passengers when it would save so much trouble just making a proper announcement in the first place. Boarding queue also merged with another flight departing at a similar time, causing a massive bottleneck. Whilst on board, pre-ordered food was not served with cutlery and it took another 15 mins to get the attn of the stewardess to get the cutlery served. Would have been faster to just get it myself."
Pros: "Early baggage check and fast boarding. The flight was on time, too."
Cons: "Least amount of leg room I have ever had. I will not complain too much because the flight was only 2 hours."
