Pros: "Excellent as well!"
Cons: "Everything good as well."

Pros: "New plane and spacious."
Cons: "No choice in meal for breakfast. Only one type available. Ran out of red wine. White wine wasn’t chilled. Poor service, no water was offered on a long flight. Have to ask it."

Pros: "Everything. Just a simple, very short haul flight: nothing too complicated."
Cons: "There was nothing to fault."

Cons: "They changed my seat without telling me and the new seat has a faulty video monitor and also a faulty USB port.. no compensation received.. terrible airline"

Pros: "We paid for extra luggage for check in but we were allowed to carry them on board due to the short stopover duration of the connecting flight. Thanks for the much needed flexibility!"

Pros: "Overall is great"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was good on this flight . The entertainment was good I managed to get a good sleep as well."
Cons: "The beer offered was in a pre poured glass I could have asked for a beer from the drinks trolley however i wanted a vodka and tomato juice I couldn't see any so didn't bother asking"

Pros: "I was surprised to board an A380 to fly from KUL to BKK"
Cons: "In Bangkok we had to get off on the field to board a bus"

Cons: "Similarly delayed departure and arrived at HongKong over 11/2 hour later- poor service!"

Pros: "Very quick transfer of my luggages in KL"

Cons: "For 50 min flight we waited 45 mins in taxi"

Cons: "All good, short flight"

Cons: "Incorrect information of boarding gate reflected on the boarding pass for the third time already. And to make it worse, this was the most difficult problem that me and my friends encountered throughout all the flights that we took. We nearly miss this flight as we actually went to the boarding gate that was reflected incorrectly on our boarding pass as stated earlier. There was also an unannounced delay. Flight estimated departure is at 1720HRS, but the flight only took off 1750HRS."

Pros: "The cabin crew."
Cons: "Again, incorrect information of boarding gate."

Pros: "Attendants were kind."
Cons: "Frequent delays to flight timings, and it was hard to find where the flight gate was as I couldn't find one on the screen. It was a little bit crowded. No food was given (probably because it's only 50mins flight but I wished there were snacks or drinks given for us)"

Pros: "Can’t find anything good."
Cons: "The airline is protected by the government. Hence there is no motivation for them to improve. This airline is my last choice. My biggest dissatisfaction is the hospitality shown by the crew.. not sincere and in some cases rude... is this the MH - MALAYSIAN Hospitality that they keep advertising? Very disappointing.."

Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Too hot onboard"

Cons: "Malaysian is known the world over for its great food. It's a pity Malaysia Airlines MH=Malaysian Hospitality doesn't extend to serving simple, good food. The pastry was nothing but a lump of dough with tasteless fillings, and the main meal was atrocious. Everything else was mediocre, except the crew, who were friendly and warm as always,"

Pros: "Most of it, especially having a meal on such a short flight."
Cons: "Could do with more legroom, tall people exist"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Food. Arrival arrangements (although this may be out of the airlines control - slow immigration, disorganised luggage collection."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour. We had problem getting the attention of the crew as all of them were just hanging around the galley."

Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."

Cons: "my bag failed to arrive in bkk till next day and had been broken into at kl airport .bkk said this happens every day at kl never fly malaysia again!."

Cons: "2h+ delay"

Cons: "Losing my luggage"

Pros: "Cabin crew, smooth flying"

Pros: "Overall price / value is very good"
Cons: "Leg room is very small"

Cons: "All good"

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: "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: "3 hours flight delay"

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: "Food"
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: "The flight can’t even provide a plastic bag for me to pack my pre order meal."

Cons: "Seats was very tight and uncomfortable!!!"

Pros: "Flight was v smooth"

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: "Inexpensive flight, attentive crew"

Cons: "Notification of delayed flight wrong."

Cons: "Never been on a flight before, where the pilot pushed back whilst people were still taking their seats. Not very safe!"

Cons: "Lazy crew"

Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Delays, and not entertainment"

Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "No food or drinks. But that was expected as we didn’t pay for it"

Cons: "Food"

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

Pros: "Everything is good"

Cons: "Always delay!!!!"

Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Flight attendant quite slow for delivering food and not many selection food available as usual"

Pros: "fast and on time"

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"

Pros: "On time both times. Ground staff especially very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing we didn’t really not like"

Pros: "Price. Number of flights."
Cons: "The 7kg hardline AFTER doing the document check nearly caused me to miss my flight thus potentially missing a connection. If AsiAsia are going to keep to this 7kg hardline they really need to do it across all airports and do it during the document check so the number of queues costumers are subjected to are minimized. I did purchase extra weight when purchasing the ticket however that weight MUST be in checked bags only. No margin here for discussion. Perhaps HotSeat passengers are less scrutinized??? This all may be just some transitional pains here and other airlines may follow the same model but in my 200+ flights on Nok Air this has NEVER happened. In fact, they (Nok) have NEVER weighed my carry on bag. Such a shame as the rest of the flight experience was above average. This hardline approach will be an issue if they continue until they beat their customers into taking or leaving it in my opinion. First AirAsia flight for me so the vets reading this will be smiling quietly to themselves ;-)"

Cons: "Book it trought kiwi and bought a suitcase of 20 k and air Asia say that it was not in my booking so I had to pay again."

Pros: "All ok, seriously,stewardesses look great and very charming with her uniforms, very friendly staff"

Pros: "Everything was smooth"

Cons: "Unable to use airasia app for e-boarding"

Pros: "This is now our airline of choice between KL and Singapore and the next time we fly to Australia we will try flying with Air Asia.

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "All ok"
