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: "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."

Cons: "Got told luggage would go straight to bali from origin in Nepal. Waited at baggage check in jarkata just in case. Sure enough, our baggage comes out. Transfer to domestic terminal was almost impossible since we were given no information and our flight number changed completely. All of a sudden it was batik air not malindo, which has a completey different terminal. Will not be travelling with malindo again."

Pros: "Check in and boarding we're both quick and easy. There were unsold exit row seats on our flight and the flight attendants lets us change seats. The in flight meals were quite tasty."

MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."

Pros: "Malaysia airlines has some of the most beautiful women working for them. Most curteous, kind, and very personable. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful"
Cons: "The long layovers with no hotel voucher from Malaysia air. That would be a big help especially for me since I travel alone. And not to familiar with hotel locations, taxis. I am concerned about my safety in another country..."

Pros: "Yeah it's fine journey and we love to travel in Malaysia airlines And last but not least it's nice journey"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No alcohol"

Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."

Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."

Pros: "my family and I flew one way Singapore to London (15 hours 1 hour stopover in KL) for $1600 (all 4) Singapore Airlines or BA were $1800 per person. they are nicer airlines but not $5600 better. Airbus A380 was a bit tired but service was good. pretty painless trip all in all"

Cons: "Seats feel super cramped"

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: "Flight was smooth. Cabin crew was courteous. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "More thought should be given to the snack offering as it was heavily sugar laden. Flight was delayed by almost an hour to accommodate 1 family."

Pros: "Flight was full ...so felt cramped. Towards back of plane so only 1 toilet. The Veg pie was slightly warm and unappetising , took 1 bite and left rest. Steward saw this and gave me extra peanuts instead. The brekkie was awfulll, the supposed scrambled eggs was congealed into the shape of the holder and again lukewarm the grilled tomatoe looked washed out....unappetiising...so ate the squahed croissant , yoghurt and fruit. What happened to international food standards . Crew was nice...though if wanted water later on had to get yourself.They didn't come around much offering water before Brekkie. No game option eg Sudoku on Entertainment site. My bag come off carousel more scratched than with other Airlines, so poor handling. Disembarked by stairs at Sydney Airport near Cargo plane area and had bus to Airport. Never had that before on an International flight , so took much longer to get into terminal....last thing you want after a long flight."

Pros: "Crew was efficient and polite in Business class. Lie flat seats were fantastic and cabin layout was great."
Cons: "Lack of movies compared to other carriers. Lack of food choices. Would have thought there be more local cuisine included especially for a flight emanating out of KL. Check-in at KLIA was pretty dismal in terms of the process - simply had no idea where to go even though I was in Business class."

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."

Cons: "Second flight in a row for a one hour flight and we are delayed one hour. Better just go with a low cost airline then"

Pros: "I love flying with MAS"
Cons: "I don't like Tax Refund Customs Verification"

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Pros: "Flights seat is comfortable"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The temperature of the air craft before take off is making me sick"

Pros: "Everything was good ..."
Cons: "... we were just a little bit delayed."

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: "Nice and clean aircraft"

Pros: "Prompt boarding, leather seats with reasonable leg room, even with seat in front reclined. Efficient, friendly and professional stewards"
Cons: "Had to ask someone in terminal about getting our connecting flight"

Cons: "Never Kiwi.com again! Thailand to Indonesia both flights on AirAsia but they would not book my bag to final destination. In Kuala Lumpur had to go through customs (LUCKILY! no visa required) get my bag, go security line again, check bag again. Took over 2hrs stressed if I would make my flight."

Pros: "The new seats are good. I didn't get any back pain."
Cons: "Not much."

Cons: "Regarding the luggage. Myself need to purchase luggage but some of the people not need to buying. The Airasia staff informing that my luggage and laptop more than 11kg and need to purchasing. This is first time, I hear that laptop including also. As per my view, I had saw some of the people more heavy and biggest than me but still can go through. It is because I am foreigner and they are local person."

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: "Delayed 2 time"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Price"
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: "Old and worn out"
Cons: "Food is not appetizing. There were only meat or chicken to choose from. Need to have an option for fruits only."

Pros: "Fares. Schedules. Destinations. More than you might expect for a low cost airline."
Cons: "I got what I paid for."

Pros: "Delayed in departures for 30 mins but arrived only by 5 mins late"
Cons: "In the Ramadan month, on board the plan just when time for breaking fast, a small glass of plain water to be given free for passengers on the flight at that time would be a thoughtful gesture"

Pros: "The crew are friendly."
Cons: "Quite often arrived late, took too long for passengers to settle down."

Pros: "I feel confident with your aircraft and crew. Very professional"
Cons: "The chicken and rice was not the freshest and although the seats are comfortable they are very cramped for a big falang like me"

Cons: "It was a night flight. Inflight light was on almost throughout the entire flight."

Cons: "One hour delay on runway"

Cons: "The flight delayed for 6 hours and when we make inquiry they keep saying will update soon. On top of that, after informing that I'm vegetarian they still insisted me to take kfc. Ended up having wedges and bun."

Pros: "Crews are ok in general"
Cons: "I was detained at the ticket cutting counter because I carried extra plastic back for purchase at the airport. Apparently in HK they have absurd rules saying that you can only have 2 bags carry on. Any extra has to be charges. I never have that kind of rules before using Air Asia at the other country, especially we buy some presents at the airport. I end up throwing a few items away because I can't squeeze in everything in my carry on bag. I will no longer take Air Asia for the Hong Kong Route."

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: "nothing to say."
Cons: "only food that i received the rice i think didn't cooked properly"

Pros: "The Aircraf was brand new"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Good: cheap and on time. Bad: aways slow check-in and uncomfortable seating. Everything a budget airline should be."

Cons: "No water is provided on board"

Pros: "Cabin crew were professional and courteous. I like the boarding at rear of airplane first"
Cons: "For me, the seats a were uncomfortable. No lower back support."

Pros: "fast and good"
Cons: "seat size"

Pros: "All except boarding"
Cons: "Flyers cutting que prior to boarding without intervention from air crew staffs."

Pros: "Nice clean plane and efficient staff"
Cons: "We Pre ordered (and paid for) meals when we booked our tickets, having flown Air Asia before we knew what was good and what wasn't. Somehow our orders were lost and we got the 'default' meal on all flights which was sweet and sour chicken meatballs which was almost as awful as it sounds. We heard the same thing happen to the lady in the seat behind us. Staff pretty much ignored our complaint. There's also a weird process with check in where you get processed into a small lounge Pre flight with no food or shops, there doesn't appear to be a reason for this other than making you sit somewhere cramped and uncomfortable for an hour before your 9 hour flight."

Cons: "More than 3h late, no information, gate close (we had to wait in the corridor), nothing to drink during the flight. And I had to pay 80RM just to travel with my umbrella,"

Cons: "The flight was delayed today for half an hour"

Pros: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."
Cons: "Cabin crew totally forget their priority task which is to Ensure the comfort of passenger. Instead everyone is so focus on retail as well as F&B add on sales."

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: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight delayed by around over 7 hours. Only discovered this when went to check in. This has meant we are currently stuck in KL airport awaiting a morning flight having already paid for a nights accommodation in Penang. Airline has refused to take any responsibility for the situation."

Pros: "Flight is not so full"
Cons: "So far so good"

Pros: "Cabin Crew was great First time using the inflight entertainment Rokki. Great job Airasia."
Cons: "Ground check in crew at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (Azureen) was damn rude. I'm appalled with her customer service level. Rude and not helping at all. Worst Airport staff I've met so far."

Cons: "When i arrived at airport i was inform that y must paid us$ 70 extra for a 15kg bag(was the only bag for two passwngers)When i arriVed at airport i was inform that y must paid us$ 70 extra for a 15kg bag(was the only bag for two passwngers)"

Pros: "Staff, flight, seats, etc. were all good. We will fly Air Asia more in the future."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. Everything went as seamless as a flight can be."

Pros: "There was nothing to like. Literally!"
Cons: "Delayed for more than 9 hours, which ruined a complete day of my trip. When inquired from local office, they were clueless and was really rude. We could not do the web checking as there was a error in the site and we ended up paying more than 3 times what we were supposed to pay for baggage."

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: "Hard to complain about a $100 USD flight."
Cons: "KLIA 2 does take some time to get from the entrance to the gate. Once at the gate though the flight was delayed 45 minutes."

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: "cant think of anything."
Cons: "the air asia klia2 terminal is a dump. the gate seats are rock hard/uncomfortable. the air con in the terminal was set too cold. I think the check-in baggage fee was too high. if I would have ordered food the price would have been close to ctrip fairs, and on those flights u might get entertainment. I don't think I saved that much to not consider other carriers next time."

Cons: "Silkair service was insincere and lousy nowadays."

Pros: "We eventually took off."
Cons: "We taxi'ed around for over an hour after boarding. Just driving around the airport for an hour, not taking off. No complimentary drinks or snacks."

Cons: "Curt treatment at check-in."

Pros: "Puntuality"
