You get what you pay for. It’s functional and gets you from point A to B in good comfort. However, food options are limited and cash only, Crew is a hit and miss .. they get your attention if you reach out.
The worst kind of budget airline. To be honest....the plane was not that bad. Would have been good to have some food choices and some water. What was by far the worse is the passengers/customers that this airline attracts. Coughing and spluttering all over one another with no masks. Just disgusting. Pay for a better carrier and get a better class of passenger.
Pros: "A nice experience overall. Flight was quiet so plenty of personal space."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from check in to arrival. Bags were delivered timely. Flights were on time."
Cons: "No entertainment options. Little to no food service."
Pros: "The crew are ok. They should find jobs with other, better airlines."
Cons: "Flight delayed on both legs. Delay management horrible, call centre was worse."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Changed the time of my flight early by more than 2 hours, with no communication. I therefore missed the flight. I was informed there was a flight that evening but they refused to move me as I had booked through an agent. Waited more than 6 hoursnin the airport for next flight and was offered only a meal voucher worth £4. Later flight was delayed, resulting in me missing my friends pre wedding henna party and arriving more than 8 hours late. Not a single apology given!"
Pros: "Except for a 1-hour delay, overall the flight was good, smooth and enjoyable. Loved the inflight meal. For the price we paid we got meal and 30kg baggage allowance, we thought that was just value for money. And they departed from KLIA and not klia2 which is more convenient."
Cons: "Flight wasn't on time to and from HKG."
Pros: "The staff were very kind, the seat had a great amount of leg room."
Cons: "There was no alcohol on the flight."
Pros: "Crews are nice."
Cons: "Seems like Malindo is starting to degrading the service quality. The flight I took before: they change the airplane to batik which was worse with no entertainment, smaller seat pitch, etc. I book Malindo for a reason and paid for what expected using Malindo!! If they had to change the plane they should've given better one or given back compensation to passengers! Now this flight, they didn't activate the entertainment till way later and turned off way too early. They didn't give any earphone as supposed to. Malindo's service has become bad."
Pros: "For the price that we paid, it included 30kg baggage and refreshment (orange juice, water, coffee, a slice of pizza and a muffin) - it was worth it. The legroom is spacious, the seat was comfortable and the cabin crew was awesome. Flight was on time, check in was acceptable (considering people travelling from Bandung has a lot of check in baggage due to shopping)."
Elderly individual shud be given priority to board the plane together with passengers with children and disabled. Otherwise things are OK.
Cons: "MH hospitality has gone down. Those days they were the best of the best. Now, there is hardly any hospitality at all. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Because I had missed my original connecting flight, the airlines booked me at an overnight hotel and my new flight seat number was premium economy. This was fine in the end, but in the moment I practically cried."
Cons: "Again, not being delayed and having to miss my original connecting flight would have been best."
Pros: "Window seat was good for enjoy very wonderful outside view."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the in-flight entertainment was fine."
Cons: "The crew shouldn’t assume that an Asian person is Vietnamese just because they boarded from Vietnam. The vegetarian door was awful."
Cons: "It was delayed by 15mins due to heavy rain but it was OK as everything else was on point"
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Flight status went from check in status to final call....not boarding announcement as promised in lounge. Rude check in lady at counter. Misguided info about check in. Old ratty plane. Bad food. Luggage damaged on arrival. Awful seats."
Pros: "Crews were good."
Cons: "Seats were small and quite uncomfortable. luckily it was a short trip. If travelling long distance I ll have to consider a different airlines."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No control of children on group tour, allowed to yell and run around. Express Immigration pass not available"
Cons: "aircraft a bit old and my remote control was broken, lunckily my next seat was not occupied, so I can move to next seat and the seat a bit old and decline angle so limit. if compare with business class seat of other airlines, it's a bit not up to standard."
Cons: "GROUND STAFF LETTING ME CHECK IN AS I HAD NO BAGS AND WAS GIVEN HALF HOUR TO GET ACROSS 4 TERMINALS TO MAKE FLIGHT. MISSED BY 5 MINUTES AND GROUND STAFF VERY UNACCOMODATING"
Pros: "The flight i booked has 2 segments and both by Air Asia. However, when arrived in KL, i was forced to exit term"
Pros: "The new seats are good. I didn't get any back pain."
Cons: "Not much."
Pros: "quick boarding, flight duration and scheduled arrival Attracting fares since it’s a budget airline."
Cons: "The seats didn’t even have a recliner."
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: "Staff were very helpful and friendly. Even let me off some money for a drink"
Cons: "Checking in took way longer than needed"
Cons: "I was sold an empty Marshall 111 box in a sealed Duty Free bag or 136 USD. COMPLAINED WHEN DISCOVER AT HOME THAT NIGHT. SINCE THEN GIVEN THE RUN AROUND"
Cons: "No room for legs Flight was delayed without any information at the gate My wife was at a differtn row even if there was a free seat next to me. I had to pay to next to her during check-in."
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: "Where is my bag. Please find my bag because many thing inside it."
Cons: "Fail tu makesure customer bag arrival safely"
I was next to a quite large person. Soni essentially had 2/3 of my seat for myself and couldn't sit properly. Even though there were some other seat available, the staff refuse that I occupy another seat.
Pros: The staff was very friendly. Cons: Long delay. The food is terrible.
Pros: "Ground staff is friendly and helpful during baggage check-in. Change of gate is notified via SMS & mail."
Cons: "Air conditioning at departure hall was not working properly. It feels rather humid while waiting for boarding."
Cons: "Worst landing i’ve Ever experienced. But everything else was fine."
Pros: "Quiet Zone well worth the $28. Could do with the crew reminding people it’s a QUIET zone though."
Cons: "Not arriving 2 hours late and having screaming babies in the back for the entire 10 hours"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Nothing is included, but you should also know that going in"
Cons: "air asia was awful. all they care about is money. over 200$ for baggage checks and then they want you to pay 3$ for a glass of water. no entertainment either, for a 7 hour flight, some water would have been nice."
Cons: "AirAsia is stepping the game up. Food could be better but the staff are always amazing with some of the biggest and whitest smiles I’ve seen. Thank you."
Cons: "Crew sometimes loud in gallery. . Prefer not too hear their conversations. Service Great. Luggage camber off amazingly fast!"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and unevenly spaced out for an overnight flight it wasn’t possible to get comfortable to sleep"
Worst airline ever. They didn’t let me board although I had a connecting flight boarding pass. The reason was “we don’t have an agreement with Bhutan airlines” the hell? How do you hand out boarding passes and let someone go through the airport to the gate and then say we can’t board and have to go back to security. Who can make that flight/time? Completely irresponsible in communicating this. I’ll never fly MYairline.
Can’t expect more than this from a budget airlines. Excellent value for money. Cheap and on time service. That’s what matters.
