Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Two MH flights I took were 1 hour and 2 hours late. The latter resulted in missing connection to BKK and another flight to TPE. I got stuck in Kuala Lumpur for the night and they booked me a resort that was 30-40 min drive from the airport. How are all of these reasonable?!"
Pros: "I got there eventually"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Despite recent tragedies that led to loss of life and aircraft, the flag carrier of Malaysia seems to be well on the road back to good health and prosperity. This is a win-win situation all 'round. From being re-booked to an earlier flight by their impressive ground staff to excellent in-flight service and airmanship during the ride, the experience was truly one of the nicest airline experiences in recent memory. With improvements at MNL coupled with this fine experience, I now have another option to choose from when traveling by air both within SEA and beyond. Kudos to all."
Cons: "Though not MH's fault, having to queue for nearly 2 hours at KLIA to clear immigration formalities was an extremely rude welcome back here, considering that it took me less than 30 minutes in June to clear formalities at the "Budget Terminal.""
Cons: "Had to change gates last minute in Kuala Lumpur. Since security is at the gate, that meant going through security twice. When we went to the new gate there was much confusion among security staff as they were not informed of the gate change."

Cons: "Lateness and lack of transparency from MAS staff"
Cons: "The quality of the in-flight meal (noodles and fish) very poor!"

Cons: "The first meal that was given was poor. a single roll for the fist of two meals offered on an 8 hour flight, is the poorest meal i have had on a flight of this duration."
Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "Nothing special on this flight. Entertainment system didn't actually work at the beginning for everyone on board and had to be rebooted. you would think everything would be thoroughly checked prior to a flight. It started to work about an hour later into the flight."
Pros: "The seats are good recently"

Pros: "Airport crew was friendly and provided umbrellas to everyone as they boarded plane. Managed brief rain-related departure delay well. Nice in flight travel magazine."
Cons: "Bag fees were high. I misunderstood when booking as website said on bag (meaning "cabin bag"/"carry on"), so not only did I have to pay the standard luggage cost for my one check in bag but also a same-day late fee, making it twice as expensive."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Flight delayed, landed at 2.00am+"
Cons: "They are very strict about the weight of your luggage and will not budge on the overage charge. They serve fish for breakfast...gross."

Pros: "Flight delayed close to 2 hours. Only notified once we we’re in the boarding hall"
Cons: "Flight delayed close to 2 hours. Only notified once we we’re in the boarding hall"
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."
Pros: "convenient flight times"
Cons: "i hated that there are no human beings in sight. i hate all the machines. i hate that you dont employ people. if you want to give jobs to machines then i what use are you? i would much rather pay more and be greeted by a friendly human face. you are all fools and i will seek other airlines in future"
Pros: "Missed flight because the Air Asia app could not process my boarding pass. Had to leave my arrival Terminal 1 to pass through Immigration to reach Terminal 2 because Air Asia has no counter in Yerminal 1. All this led to a time consuming exercise and missed counter check-in time. Terrible experience."
Cons: "Rough flight and landing, seemed like a rookie pilot was flying."
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "Delayed departure 20 minutes. Same as from Penang to Langkawi two days ago."
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The food is shockingly decent. Yeah you have to pay cash and it’s not convenient, but the food is edible and there is lots of variety."
Cons: "AirAsia sucks balls. Or at least, it was fine leaving Singapore, but returning from a crappy small town airport to it was a fraudulent nightmare. We were told to check in online and add baggage at least two days before flying to avoid excessive baggage fees. So we paid them the first time, no problem. But AirAsias website is clearly coded by bricks with fingers. Because 6,5,4, and 3 days prior, it says such service is unavailable. Okay, we’ll do it at the airport then, it’ll be nice and easy just like at Changi. Only at this crappy subpar excuse for an airport, they live by no rules and want to charge $300USD - more than double what was charged at Changi - for two 20kg bags. 20kg, which my boarding pass and my booking both say we are entitled to, is suddenly 5kg in excess, so they want to screw your American wallet hard, long, and good because even if you had a good time, chances are you will never pass through the half baked gas station that is Langkawi again. Oh yeah and don’t bother paying for the WiFi - they get you good there too - 10mb which is basically a couple jpegs but you won’t get squat anyway. Literally nothing, and then suddenly your puny 10mb has disappeared, along with your money and what’s left of AirAsias credibility."
Pros: "fast and good"
Cons: "seat size"
Pros: "All except boarding"
Cons: "Flyers cutting que prior to boarding without intervention from air crew staffs."
Cons: "constant flight delays"
Pros: "There was a fee to change the automatically assigned middle seat to a window seat, but it was low: either $6 for a seat close to the front of the plane or $3 elsewhere. It was nice to have those options. First time flyer on Air Asia; I would choose them again."
Cons: "No beverage service unless you had booked it in advance."
Pros: "Crew was professional, relatively quick boarding"
Cons: "BAGGAGE FEES were OUTRAGEOUS!!"
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Plane was delayed twice and nothing was communicated. They where aware that we we missing our connecting flights and promised to give us accomodation overnight a KL. when we arrived at KL there was again no communication and they then told us there was to be no accomodation, they had flat out lied. I after about an hour lining up to get a replacement ticket for the next flight (which took unnecessarily long considering they knew this was happening hours in advance), we went to the airport hotel which I would have booked if they had not lied to me to find that it was booked out."
Cons: "An apppology for a start and hopefully some compensation"
Cons: "Delay delay"
Pros: "First time I've flown with them. I was very impressed"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Cabin crew ok Check in online nice E-boarding pass nice"
Cons: "Boarding by zone is not effective. Wifi in boarding room in jakarta was too slow"
Pros: "Nothing anymore"
Cons: "Departed from KL with a carry on, never asked to weigh it or check its size. On the way back from Langkawi, I was asked to weigh the bag since they suddenly implemented a policy of no more than 7kg on board. Told the rude creature that it was ok when I left KL, he said: here in langkawi we are implementing the policy and have nothing to do with KL!! Was asked to check-in my bag, and paid RM79 for the extra 3 kilos. Never flying with them again."
Pros: "It's good when u pay rm50 something, but later u will have to wait!"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, and of course, around an hour delay."
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."
Cons: "It was my first time flying a LCC. OK, it is my fault for not knowing they charge much higher rate of extras for any add-ons you fail to include when you first book the flight. I get it. But why do they make it impossible to access "manage your flight" online to make necessary changes on return flight? And I got nowhere with the online chat box, s nowhere to turn.... Making such changes on Tiger Air was so much easier and intuitive. I'll never fly Air Asia if I can help it."
Pros: "Cabin crew were proactive, hard working and super friendly. Upgraded to "hot" seats at check in without charge. Wide range of food and beverages available despite being a short 1.5 hour flight. Aircrafts were clean and well maintained. Both flights landed either on time or early despite weather issues."
Cons: "Check in process, hidden fees, unworkable app for iPhone. I tried to use the app to check in and pay for a bag, it didn't allow me and I had to pay the much more expensive fee at the airport to check the bag. App in general didn't work well at all, it never showed the return leg journey so I couldn't make any amendments to the booking. Check in process took ages in Langkawi, only two desks open for all of AK's flights. None of the self service kiosks were working despite being advertised as functioning."
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."
Pros: "Great service and amazing food !"
Cons: "Everything also must charge, the worst one is even you pay them money they still want to charge extra, seat is the smallest among all airline."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Baggage Fees It seems as if this is not an unusual complaint. Maybe the airline should reconsider their policy in a gesture of customer service rather than an opportunity to deceivingly charge exorbitant fees."
Pros: "For once, had a friendly check-in agent."
Cons: "A number of delays. Little or no information. Crew attended well to each other."
