Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent and the premium economy seat was very comfortable and accommodating. The choice of food from the variety menu was also delicious."
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, attentive and joyful!"

Cons: "Entertainment system is rather tired for today’s standard for first tier airlines, in particular the headphone jacks which may not work from wear & tear. It’s a hit & miss whether the sound works or not. Obviously mine didn’t on one side this time. Very frustrating if you are on a long flight and there’s nothing you can do if the flight is full."
Cons: "Too salty Hindu non veg meal"
Pros: "food. schedule was on time"
Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."

Cons: "The only negative feedback was the transit in Depansar whereby luggages have to be claimed when transferred from international to domestic terminal. This is cumbersome and time consuming. As luggage have to be check on again. I do hope they will have auto self transferred in the near future."
Pros: "Great service and food"
Cons: "Jet Airways (partner company on flight) waited 5 days before putting my lost bag through customs on arrival in India and made me wait 3 hours, after the 5 days, to receive it. They gave no explanation, no apology, and actually sent an employee from another company to deliver my bag after I had waited that long."
Pros: "The flight from strong was delayed by 2.5 hours due to a technical problem. In spite of this delay Garuda made sure I made my connection in Makassar and my luggage also made the connection."

Cons: "They should giving out headphones for business class to use the entertainment system"
Pros: "First time on Malaysian. At least we didn’t disappear. All was okay except for the meal on the flight to Saigon. I’m not one to complain about airline food but the “meal” served was execrable, possibly the worst in 65 years of flying. And no alcohol on an international flight was niggardly in my estimation.. The flight from Penang to KL they had the cheek to serve a tiny cup of fake orange juice. I will avoid Malaysian in the future."
Cons: "Please see what above."
Cons: "very delayed flight in addition slow flying what should have taken 52 minutes ended 1 hour 20 min to add to that poor cabin crew management of Business Class disembarking excruciating slowly added another delay of 20 minutes!"

Pros: "Luggage allowance."
Pros: "Cool and excellent service."
Cons: "Creaky seats in business class, below average selection of inflight movies and food that was substandard. This was a very oddly configured A330 with the seats in business way too close to each other. Every time they make an announcement you have to deselect whatever you were watching again."
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.

Pros: "On time takeoff, landed early....everything was smooth"
Pros: "Not enough elbow space between fat passengers"
Cons: "Bathroom line"
Pros: "The first and second flight of the four were on time. The food was surprisingly pretty good- probably some of the best airplane food I've had. Not much variety, but still good. One of the four flights had entertainment, and the movies were of good selection."
Cons: "Planes poorly taken care of inside. First flight back delayed so long, missed our connection. Ended up having to stay in KL, where the hotel they put us in was an hour away from the airport. No direction, terrible communication. The attendant in Bali lied to me, knowingly. I had to miss a day of work due to this. And this all could have been avoided if they would have held the second plane just 30 more minutes."
Pros: "The entertainment, seat spacing"
Cons: "The gate"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Check in- only 2 desks open."
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: "They damaged MY OVER 400 Euro suitcase handle and said that they dont take any responsibility!!!"
Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."

Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"
Pros: "The flight surprisingly arrived ahead of schedule :)"
Cons: "The food, at least it was better than the food out of KUL"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, well trained, and friendly."

Pros: "Quick easy and simple. Staff were very friendly."

I didn't eat as flights were short... no entertainment although they do have Rokki wifi to watch stuff on phones and tablets... I didn't bother though. Boarding was slick... time lost due to late departure was largely recovered in flight... Aircraft was clean and comfortable. Will definitely use as my airline of choice when travelling in the area..."
Cons: "Too hot - needed cooler air"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, sat on the back row the toilet smelt pretty bad and I had very little leg room, when the guy in front reclined his chair I had to stand up. Prices for food and drink were pretty good."

Pros: "Well so far i uded airasia 3 times and always on time"
Pros: "AirAsia is a crooked airline. We had to pay Singapore$120 to check in two pieces of cabin luggage at the airport because we HONESTLY declared they were over 7kg each. On board the aircraft most passengers had cabin luggage which most definitely exceeded 7kg. NEVER again AirAsia."
Cons: "Stop overcharging for every f...g thing if not booked ahead. Add it all up a regular airline is cheaper. Dont abuse your network and schedule. You will never get be back to fly you."
Pros: "The airline was okay and pretty much on time. I think they are one of the safest to travel on in Indonesia after Garuda Indonesia."
Cons: "Super old aircraft, it was very dirty including the seats and tray table. I didnt feel like touching it. There was no entertainment whatsoever."
Pros: "Again Delayed"
Cons: "Missed appointment delayed as usual"
Cons: "I didn’t think there was an airline worse than the budget U.S. domestic carriers until I found AirAsia. Not worth even the low cost. I had a horrible check-in experience at both airports I flew from with them, charged for every little thing, no in-flight entertainment, and the flight crew was yelling at the passengers. Never again!"
Cons: "It would have been great to have a confirmation that you received our request before the day of departure. We thought the booking did not get through so we booked another company. We ended up losing the money for that ticket. We could not reach kayak and AirAsia, in their policy doesn’t cancel anything. I don’t know who was supposed to send us the confirmation but the money is gone"
Cons: "I got stuck in traffic and missed my flight from lAX to Singapore, so I called Kiwi right away, and they wouldn’t rebook me. If there is anyway you can help I would appreciate it so much!!!"
Cons: "You booked us a flight with only an hour layover in Singapore. I feel you should have known that changing airlines in Singapore requires a 3 hour layover as you must claim your baggage at the baggage claim, go through customs, change terminals, re-check your bag and then go through security again. All this being said we missed our flight and had to purchase new tickets! What are you going to do to make this up to us as it’s our honeymoon?"
Pros: "We survived the flight with only a little backpain and one stiff butt cheek"
Cons: "No legroom, very narrow seating, no meal, expensive"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 times until 4 hours from the original flight time."
Pros: "Delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "Crews are quite friendly"
Cons: "Certain Crew is unable to do simple math calculation even though she is using calculator. I was purchasing food and gave Malaysian Ringgit, little that I know, the change is given in Rupiah and the amount was wrong, it was short of 55,000. Luckily I did a little math calculation my own, and find that she was over-charging too much for the food. Realizing that particular crew can't calculate, I offer to pay using Rupiah, she rejected it and gave me back the proper change. The exchange rate on board is absurd!!! I suggest use local currency if anyone would do onboard purchasing on AirAsia."
Pros: "We boarded and landed on-time without a hitch. I didn't prepaid or order any food but it did smell good."
Cons: "No entertainment on the aircraft."
Cons: "Never flew due to volcano - fair enough. But communication from the airline was utterly non-existent, as was any kind of service and support for rescheduling etc. Confusing messages on their website and refusal to fly despite other airlines having no issue - because they didn't want to pay parking rates at AU airports. Air Asia ruined my holiday far more than Mt Agung."
Cons: "It is like riding a bus except bus would allow you bags free of cost. No entertainment. Food and water only if you pay. Had to pay for bags also and it is not a small amount. Sucha ripoff."
Cons: "Delay flights. wait too long"
Pros: "Friendly staffs - both on the Fllight as well as the Ground Staffs."
Cons: "I cannot think of any"
Cons: "it was late, quality of experience was poor- from predeparture to landing"
Pros: "Very friendly."
Pros: "AirAsia is probably my favorite discount airline, but that means by definition an acceptable but no frills experience. Got that at a relatively attractive price"
Cons: "The on-board sales cart did not have finger puppets, which I wanted to buy for some children."
Pros: "Service Crew"
Cons: "The automated baggage system"
Pros: "absolutely nothing about the flight was"
Cons: "I paid for exit row seating and didnt get it"
Pros: "The price is competitive"
Cons: "The aircraft had been in the ground but boarding 45 minutes late, I saw steward, stewardess and copilot chat in front of toilet :|"
Pros: "Almost everything except for the seats.."
Cons: "The seats.. too small.."
Cons: "Flight was badly delayed and retimed 3 times. Ended up we wasted a whole day. No reason was given."
Cons: "Flight was delay"
Pros: "Landing 20mins early."
Cons: "Going by bus to & from the plane. Waiting for luggage"
Cons: "Delay of one hour Delay announced was 20 minutes and no further announcements were made about additional delays Maybe some refreshments could have been served to compensate for delay at least"
Cons: "They charged me $186.43 USD"
Pros: "fast and cheap"
Pros: "The plane seemed to be in good condition and crew were friendly"
Cons: "I agreed to purchase three roundtrip tickets for myself, wife, & infant son. After checking in, I noticed the return boarding pass for my son was missing. I contacted Air Asia via instant message and was told that it wasn't a problem and I could get a boarding pass at the counter. Upon visiting the Air Asia counter at the outbound airport, I was told to see the counter again at the in-bound airport. The in-bound airport advised that the ticket was never purchased for the return. In fact it was as the tickets were not purchased individually. The tickets were purchased in a group as three round trip tickets and that's what I agreed to. At this point, I had no option but to purchase another ticket. Feeling cheated and powerless to resolve the issue I was very angry with Air Asia and would not fly with them again due to this fraud."
Pros: "The value, I got low price ticket. Polite , helpful crew. On schedule. Using apps for check in, no paper harassment. Didn't try food, and no use for entertainment for short flight. Don't have baggage."
Cons: "Space was so cramped, aisle and between seats. Would be very uncomfortable for people with long legs, long flight. Even cabin crew could hardly help with baggage on boarding in and out because of the space. Should be more firm on one cabin bag+one handbag policy, many inconsiderate passanger carry more so it was even more cramped."
Pros: "Crews attitude were nice."
Cons: "The interior was look old and worn. It's a tired plane, with no proper clean up or maintenance in between flights."
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "AirAsia is a joke. first off there never on time. My plane left 2.5 hours late. on top of that they give you NO free anything. They charge for coke, water any drinks & snacks. Oh and your baggage has to be really light. I was charged $275 to check 2 bags. Absolutely absurd. Oh and to top that off, I've never been on a plane with smaller seats. AVOID THIS AIRLINE!!!"
Pros: "The free meal prior to boarding."
Cons: "The fact that our flight was extremely delayed and the gate was very chaotic!"
Cons: "From prior reviews I knew enough to allow nearly four hours to make the change from domestic (Bali to Jakarta) to international (Jakarta to Tokyo) upon arrival in the Jakarta airport. Good thing! Our early evening Bali flight was delayed by almost an hour; more importantly, the bus-to-arrival, baggage claim, bus-to-international terminal-with-luggage took nearly ninety minutes to figure out and execute (not AirAsia's fault, obviously, but still a planning issue). Adding the long walk from check-in to gate and the immigration process meant in the end we made our connection with less than thirty minutes to spare. Otherwise the flight was fine. No complaints about the ticket price either."
Cons: "We staied alot in the airport waiting the delayed flight without parior commuincation The plan was so noisy We were not notified before that our luggages were not included in the ticket price so we spent time trying to pay online but the website was so bad and then we paied cash The plan was so cold which made me feel sick and no plankets to use The take off and the landing were terriple Even no pottle of water served all have to be paid by the passengers !!"
Cons: "Boarding to the plane was terrible. Plane was delayed but two other flights had to board at the same terminal so there was a lot of confusion about boarding. There was a last minute terminal change and 3 different flights had to share the same terminal to board the bus to the planes."
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "When purchasing the flight I was in a hurry and failed to purchase two checked bags. Upon arrival air Asia charged us $45 US dollars per bag for failing to purchase online and surpassing the 4 hour time limit. We feel that this is a terrible policy. They would not wave the extraordinary baggage fees. Terrible policy!"
Pros: "AirAsia is the budget option"
Cons: "Nothing really. You get what you pay for"
