Not a terrible experience, just not particularly good."

Pros: "Good because of direct flight"

I am glad to have the options to NOT pay for the food and entertainment since I never used it during a flight less than 6 hours.

Pros: "Turnaround is fast, efficient boarding."
Cons: "State of cabin may not be 100%, due to same fast turnaround."
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: "Overall not bad the flight left on time and was a good flight."
Cons: "Please be forewarned, pay for your bags ahead of time if you can figure out how. We had a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and had not paid for our bags. It ended up costing us more for two bags than the flight for the both of us. For that reason alone I would probably not fly with them again unless it was the only option."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 9 hours out of Colombo. Missed our connection to Ho Chi Minh city. Colombo ground crew and customer service didn't have any idea about the status of the flight."
Pros: "Great service and amazing food !"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Ridiculous that you have to pay for water. No direction for boarding."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The seats are so close together one had to sit with legs spread apart and fold out tray hit your chest when opened. Staff spend more time selling AirAsia paraphanila and duty free than attending customers. No water nothing is offered for free. One flight booked had one luggage Free and the next we paid 72americian for 1 small suitcase. No info provided on luggage when booking. Sneaky way to make money. Use Firefly Airlines for a great budget airline"
Cons: "Rather uncomfortable seating - very little legroom, and seat angle promotes back pain."
Pros: "Love the staff"
Cons: "Everything was expensive"
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 ."
Pros: "Nothing special and as expected of the low cost flight"
Cons: "None so far"
Pros: "It was nice to see a vegetarian option on an in flight menu. The vegetarian curry was nice."
Cons: "We arrived a full 2 hours before our flight, as did many other people. Unfortunately, as they only had 2 people working at the check-in desk, we waited in line for over an hour to get checked in. Everyone was telling the staff that we were all at risk of missing our flight (as we still needed to clear security and immigration), however nothing changed. The girls behind the desk seemed genuinely flustered and sorry about the situation, but unfortunately no one else came to support. We made our flight by the skin of our teeth, but it seems that people in line behind us weren't so lucky."
