Pros: "Cabin Crew was great First time using the inflight entertainment Rokki. Great job Airasia."

Yes, water. -constant (and unnecessary) updates on PA system -often attempted to sell AirAsia branded paraphernalia during flight while everyone was trying to sleep -sprayed an unknown substance into the cabin to "sanitize" just before we landed (insecticide?!). We were given a warning literally 10 seconds before they sprayed it."
Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth."

Pros: "Everything was there"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
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."
Pros: "Overall not bad the flight left on time and was a good flight."
Cons: "Please be forewarned, pay for your bags ahead of time if you can figure out how. We had a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and had not paid for our bags. It ended up costing us more for two bags than the flight for the both of us. For that reason alone I would probably not fly with them again unless it was the only option."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "Check in staff was extremely rude, and extorted us for RM 20 for checking in 59 minutes before the flight instead of the supposedly required 60 minutes. Their policies are outrageous, arbitrary and not stated anywhere."
Cons: "Everything also must charge, the worst one is even you pay them money they still want to charge extra, seat is the smallest among all airline."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Ridiculous that you have to pay for water. No direction for boarding."
Pros: "Process to checking in was great, no major hurdles. Boarding and crew professionalism were good as well. Flight boarded and arrived on time."
Cons: "Wish I knew there was no food planned for service. I would have purchase ahead of time. There was no in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I was charged $94 canadian to check one bag that weighed in at 10kg. I honestly thought the man at the desk was joking. After that he sneered at me and suggested that if I had not booked through Kayak and instead through the airline, that it would be a little cheaper. He then pushed me to hand over my credit card so he could charge me. From then on all I have to say is that the planes have no entertainment, no leg room (they are known for the insanely tight seats) and no food. Not even a drop of water was offered unless you pay on board. Interesting...I wonder what they do then with all of the money they took to accept my one bag (it was seriously 10k, I'm a small girl travelling alone there was nothing large about it). All that to say, I wish I could get some money back, I would never have paid so much to check a bag if I had the opportunity to cancel the flight all together. I'm beyond unhappy with my experience."
