Flew business class. Our luggage was the last to arrive at the belt; 15 minutes after the last bag. Sigh.

I asked for more food as i was too hungry or I probably missed MAS onboard food. Both flight-attendants fulfilled my request by giving me both menus - the Nasi Lemak & the chicken noodles. Both tasted very nice. Thanks Mas. I think asked for skyjuice 5x & tomato juice twice

Pros: "Nothing."

Pros: "Everything was good about this flight"
Cons: "They need to have at least 5 to 10 vegetarian meal on board."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Everything. Bad business class food. Old movies. No inflight service."
Pros: "Window seat was good for enjoy very wonderful outside view."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
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: "There was a hot meal on this 1.5 hour hop from Kota Kinabalu to Kuching"
Cons: "The seats on the 737-800 have quite limited legroom"
Cons: "The KUL to DPS leg was on one of the oldest planes I’ve flown. A 737 with no seat back screens. They handed out 2 inch thick “tablets” in Business class, with no touch screen and only a handful of 10 year old movies."
Pros: "Check in was super easy, flight left on time , arrived early baggage was delivered in 10 minutes."
Cons: "Connecting Time"
Cons: "The pre boarding security was a mess and poorly managed in Kuala Lumpur."
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: "Nothing special"
Cons: "At least, they let me know the first delay but no further information was given to the 2nd delay. Also, neither the ground not on board staff seemed to be interested in Passagiers. Was a short flight interrupted by diverse visual ads and PRs.."
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!"
Cons: "This is the second time - once on the way to Kuala Lumpur and on the way back that we boarded late and thus missed my connecting flight. Sadly Cathay and Malaysia air (which was the airline Cathay used for the return leg of this trip refused to help and put me on an earlier flight forcing me to stay an extra 6 hrs at the airport while being sick."
Pros: "food was good and overall good economy class flight"
Cons: "distance between rows seems shorter than other airlines such as Emirates"
Pros: "The cabin crew and this was the only flight that reflects the correct boarding gate on my boarding pass."
Pros: "Retested additional blankets and got them."
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry to provide drinks and remove trays; ttrays were no hot drinks provided; overall, the crew seemed cold and not approachable."
Pros: "Peanut."
Cons: "Concentrated orange juice? Seriously? Dated flight, seats, interior."
Pros: "On time takeoff, landed early....everything was smooth"
Pros: "The flights were on time :)."
Pros: "Better overall service - boarding, no delays, comfortable cabins, pleasant crew."
Cons: "the windows were a bit smudged from previous passengers"
Pros: "All aspects were fine. Weather caused a delay for landing of ore than 45 minutes, but not airline's fault."
Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "A mediocre flight is better than an awful one? At least we *had* an entertainment unit. And there was a USB outlet so phones/ipads could remain charged throughout the flight."
Cons: "Mine was a cramped experience in an old airplane, sadly normal for the industry. Food was bad. Entertainment unit was one of those press-the-screen-and-maybe-10-seconds-later-it'll-react types. Crew wasn't very communicative about what each cart rolling down the isle was for. Not a terrible experience, just not particularly good."
Pros: "The entertainment, seat spacing"
Cons: "The gate"
Pros: "The plane was nice and new. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Toilets could have been cleaned more frequently."
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.""
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "Bad landing,"
Cons: "Transfer from domestic to international terminal in KL was slow as only 1 customs officer was working"
Pros: "The staff were helpful, well trained, and friendly."

Pros: "The staff is great"
Cons: "We had to wait very long for take off"
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Pros: "On time flights, comfortable seats and good onboard service"
Pros: "I liked the crew, very polite and helpful."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I could not check in on-line. This made that I missed half a night of sleep in Darwin because I had to check in at 1AM, flying at 4.10AM."
Pros: "On time departure system works"
Cons: "Two people on the same PNR, but seated six rows apart. Say what?"
Cons: "Got stuck by lots of crying kids."
Pros: "Crew was good in flight."
Cons: "The flight was excessively delayed. What was supposed to be a flight leaving at 2:25 AM left only at 4:15 AM or so. This is AFTER my original flight which I had booked for 1 AM was changed to 2:25 AM."
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: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Flight delayed for more than one hour. Check in counters not enough resulting in long queue."

Pros: "Was on time and we landed ahead of the scheduled ETA"
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "Be punctual."
Cons: "International travelers should not use Air Asia because of baggage limitations and application of excess baggage charges. It operates as a commuter airline."
Cons: "Very great crew, thank you AirAsia"
Cons: "We paid $37 to check in 1 Baggage and the flight from SFO to Beijing had delivered the baggage in baggage claim area. We had to take Chinese Visa to get to the baggage, even-though it is a transit. We missed the next connecting flight to Shenzhen as it ate up all our time. Now have to travel in the mercy of the airlines for next flight. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LIST THAT "VISA NEEDED IF CHECKING IN BAGGAGE" MISSED ALL FLIGHTS"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left a little late still arrived on time. I was traveling with one extra bag. 18 kilos. Cost at counter was $150.00. (Ouch) Anyway after paying the extra bag fee I went there office in the airport and purchased the same extra bag for my return flight for $28.00. Nice flight but make sure you purchase ample baggage when booking your flight."

Pros: "Good music Took off EARLY and landed EARLY"

Cons: "I arrived 3AM at KKIA, expected boarding time is 5.30AM but check-in counters are not open until past 4AM. Already 4.30AM but there was still only 1 person at the counter. Not enough instructions for self-service but no one on the floor to assist people. Arrived at my gate 15mins before boarding time. At the gate, they put up both TPE and HKG boarding information which confused the passengers."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The head stewardess pronounced a few words wrong"
Cons: "Rough flight and landing, seemed like a rookie pilot was flying."
Pros: "On time boarding ...very efficient"
Cons: "Offer same type of value food...even worst tasteless"
Pros: "The food is shockingly decent. Yeah you have to pay cash and it’s not convenient, but the food is edible and there is lots of variety."
Cons: "AirAsia sucks balls. Or at least, it was fine leaving Singapore, but returning from a crappy small town airport to it was a fraudulent nightmare. We were told to check in online and add baggage at least two days before flying to avoid excessive baggage fees. So we paid them the first time, no problem. But AirAsias website is clearly coded by bricks with fingers. Because 6,5,4, and 3 days prior, it says such service is unavailable. Okay, we’ll do it at the airport then, it’ll be nice and easy just like at Changi. Only at this crappy subpar excuse for an airport, they live by no rules and want to charge $300USD - more than double what was charged at Changi - for two 20kg bags. 20kg, which my boarding pass and my booking both say we are entitled to, is suddenly 5kg in excess, so they want to screw your American wallet hard, long, and good because even if you had a good time, chances are you will never pass through the half baked gas station that is Langkawi again. Oh yeah and don’t bother paying for the WiFi - they get you good there too - 10mb which is basically a couple jpegs but you won’t get squat anyway. Literally nothing, and then suddenly your puny 10mb has disappeared, along with your money and what’s left of AirAsias credibility."
Pros: "Efficient service & great crew"
Pros: "Politeness of the crew. Welcoming you with a smile"
Cons: "Delay. So many delay"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Crew was professional, relatively quick boarding"
Cons: "BAGGAGE FEES were OUTRAGEOUS!!"
Pros: "Staff was very attentive and well trained! Arrived without any delays. Everything was great!"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant... they were efficient and organised, modern, smart and 'on it' when necessary. 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"
Cons: "No a ala carte food available due to insufficient staff, no towel for shower and i need to use my own towel and carry the wet towel on the way back to Singapore, no hot water for shower, staff sitting down there to chit chat and a cleaner was preparing my lousy latte. Worst Plaza Premium Lounge experience!"
Cons: "Flight delayed no free water never again"
Pros: "Good because of direct flight"
Pros: "Inexpensive flights. Book early to get the best deals."
Cons: "The announcement came almost every few minutes, which is annoying. Carrier will squeeze every penny out of you. Bring something on board to eat if a long flight."
Pros: "Crew was welcoming and appreciative at start and end but that's about it... After announcement to prepare for take off... Two crew members passed the lady beside me with a big bag on her lap ... I had to ask another member passing for the 3rd time to advise her to store properly... This is needed for take off and caution as I was sitting beside her."
Cons: "Did not like the boarding procedures... Needs a bit more organization for efficiency and that the passengers know where to go when... Hate change was done via word of mouth from other passengers... The que process was all together and no structure... Room for improvement is certainly there. Its a budget Airline so I'm not expecting food or entertainment. But I was majorly annoyed with baggage policy!! This was the most rediculous of all! I payed more for my bags to follow me than I did for the plane ticket?!?! I was trying tirelessly to add bags to my flight before hand but system gave errors etc and I even tried the live chat again errors so no choice but to do this at airport for a ridiculously expensive cost. I was not happy and will think twice about this. I even considered taking the later air Malaysia flight with my bags included. If I had only known :("
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Hot air-conditioning"
Cons: "No family priority boarding."
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: "timing"
Cons: "The leg room is deplorable. My knees were continuously hitting the hard seat in front of me and going sideways wasn't even an option. I've never had this happen to me before. I'm a female and 5'9 and this is the least space I've ever had on a flight. So uncomfortable I can't imagine a long flight with this airline, which is good to know because now I will not use them for flying to Malaysia from NYC. Also both flights were delayed by nearly an hour each."
Pros: "New aircraft A320-200 NEO"
Cons: "Flight delay without information. Delay almost 1:45hrs."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than 1 hour with all the passengers seated in the plane. They didn't need to board the passengers so early."
Cons: "Terrible delay and delay without proper settlement to comfort passenger, that's what we so called budget flight but airasia is the most cheapskate ever."
Pros: "Competitive price, good regional carrier, especially short flights."
Cons: "There were confusion trying to check in before obtaining the boarding pass at the KL airport. After that, everything went well."
Pros: "Good price - efficient transportation"
Cons: "Having to scramble to find money for water. I understand that it is a very well priced airlines but when you are stuck in a plane water would be nice to be free"
