I don’t like the sour face of the check in staff at Penang international airport, front desk service provider should be more friendly n smiles always 😊
It was delayed for more than 1 hour due to LIMA when many planes landed & took-off at the same time. It could ve been better if the pilot or crew informed us every few minutes so that we know what’s going on.
Pros: "Check in and immigration was quick. Flight was on time"
Cons: "Even though there plenty of seats available, the auto seat allocation put another passenger next to me."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hour and 50 minutes. Even my inbound flight also delayed one hour."
Pros: "Flight was on time, friendly attendants."
Cons: "Check-in took forever, another line should have been opened. Very little legroom on the plane."
Pros: "Very always at check in but all very relaxed. Only gave 3 for food as we'd asked for pot noodle (Rm3) only to be told they had no hot water. Not serious & we didn't use their entertainment. Otherwise all good & would recommend"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and disembarkation T2 arrival in SIN Online check in"
Cons: "Needed to re check in in SIN, even on a same day flight Flight was late for both sectors SZB-SIN-SZB"
Pros: "The staff has no personality and no working knowledge of how customer service is supposed to be. I booked this as Malaysia Airlines and even though it's operated by Firefly, it should've recognized my priority status with OneWorld."
Pros: "There was one local manager who smiled a lot and tried to promise things that it turned out he wasn't allowed to promise while his airline was screwing me."
Cons: "International travelers, check and recheck your flight. Firefly canceled my flight "several weeks ago", according to them, didn't notify me by phone or email despite the fact that they admitted they had both on file, didn't refund the money to my credit card until the day before departure so i had no idea of the change, and then provided no help whatsoever when i arrived at the airport and the flight didn't exist anymore."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and easy. Check-in line was short, the whole airport experience was quick and easy. Flight was smooth, comfortable, staff was so friendly. When I checked in for my flight in Penang, the girl who helped me, Kay, was the most friendly help I've ever had.. She offered me a great seat and was patient and friendly when I requested to be moved around. She made conversation while we waited for the system to finish, and had a huge smile the whole time. She set the time for the whole airport and flight experience, and had me smiling the rest of the day. If there's a way to tell her bosses - she is a gem, hang on to her! I'm looking forward to my next trip on firefly!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a bit, but flight took off within a few minutes of schedule, so no real problem!"
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: "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: "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)."
Pros: "The 32" pitch giving more leg space, better than MAS and AirAsia on that count. Good baggage allowance."
Cons: "The food is rather meh, does not stand out"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours delayed and they offered no compensation or extra meal."
Cabin crew as always are leaps and bounds the crowning glory of MH. Friendliness and natural warmth are such incredible traits. Food was very good on this flight also; and flexibility in meal time to accomodate rest was a plus point. Early arrival and landing as the first morning inbound at T4 LHR meant I was off the plane and in the queue for an Uber in less than 15 minutes!
Pros: "Crew were good. Good food."
Cons: "For some reason, the seat was very uncomfortable. Rather hard with little cushion."
Cons: "Boarding on time so I didn’t have to loose the connection flight and had to stay at a hotel an hour away from kuala lumpur to barely sleep to catch a plane to auckland next day that arrives late so i cant take the ferry home."
Cons: "There were no vegan options available. I think that was my fault though because I did not set one up in advance. Would be nice if they offered one anyhow."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The pilot landed the plane smoothly. Although had a delayed departure from KUL, we arrived in Sydney earlier than expected."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "I was given a window seat but without a window. I felt I cannot breath. I saw many empty seats around"
Cons: "Better treatment of luggage. Better business class service. Food was poor."
Pros: "cabin crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats cramped; not enough space, especially for long haul. Provide more space! Earphones didn’t work. Could not enjoy entertainment. Seat would not recline. Slow checking. Not enough counter staff. Check in counter contractor staff inexperienced and held us up for over an hour due to unfamiliar"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No control of children on group tour, allowed to yell and run around. Express Immigration pass not available"
Pros: "This flight nothign"
Cons: "Major delay, should have offered passengers water or beverages. Food was very poor, no assistance for transfer on late flight."
No complaints. Made it on time with a minimum of hassle. Some complementary soft drinks would have been nice tho.
Cons: "Attentiveness, we were miss for food purchasing was abit rush."
Cons: "the ground crew at departure lounge and arrival lounges are plain stupid. giving wrong info of departure gates. arriving crew didnt open the door .. buzy with handphone"
Cons: "Boarding always take way too long because of the hand luggage problem."
Cons: "Boarding pass and ticket did not specify terminal 2!!! Automatic check in not clear"
Cons: "Uncomfortable Won't give you a blanket or cup of eatery without making you pay Delayed"
Cons: "The flight can’t even provide a plastic bag for me to pack my pre order meal."
Pros: "I will say that the AirAsia crews do save the day. This is my first time flying AirAsia on a 3 leg trip (currently on leg 2) and the crew members have been absolutely awesome and stellar."
Cons: "I’m just a BIG guy so space is my overall complaint. But as my first experience with AirAsia, it has not been a great one. First my initial flight kept being delayed and delayed until it was actually canceled. Then my second leg of my vacation trip, again, delayed and they just had us standing in line waiting to board our flight. Again I give praise to the wonderful crew members for the stellar and comforting service. They truly are the reason I have not given up on AirAsia just yet. Now I do have one leg left, my tip home...I’m hoping that this one will be the overall best experience for my AirAsia. I’m praying for an on time departure, and another wonderful staff and just a tiny bit more leg space. Wish me luck"
Pros: "On time and very friendly helpful staff. Especially ground crew"
Cons: "The short space between seats. Hard to get comfortable without room for knees. Have to pay extra for an aisle even if some are empty. Crew doesn't care."
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.
