Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."

Cons: "My checked bag did not arrive at my work city of Singapore. It took 2 days to be brought to my hotel despite my being told they would be on the next flight. I arrived back in Denpasar yesterday and, again, my bags are lost and I again I was told they would be on the next flight. I still do not have my bag. Seems to be a pattern with Malaysian Airways and I will avoid them in the future, Also, I left my Ipad plugged in at the Premier Lounge in Denpasar and realized it as I was boarding the plane. The Malaysian Air boarding staff got on radios and appeared to try to help by telling them to put aside for pick up upon my return. Yesterday, The Premiere lounge said they did not have it despite my name, email and phone number being written on the Ipad. Between Malaysian Air and the Lounge and their lack of concern and professionalism it was not a good trip. As One World Emerald member, I steer a lot of business towards these One World Airlines. I expect better treatment."
Cons: "I wasn't aware I was in Malaysian airline, I thought it was silk just as it was when I arrived... could of been a little clearer but other then that everything was great"
Cons: "No beer or wine in business class! Did not want a meal, so I got water and a tiny pack of peanuts."
Pros: "Gate area was good, boarding quick and arrived on time. Crew very pleasant."

Cons: "Both outbound and inbound flights were delayed for hours. Terrible."
Cons: "3 hour delay Food quality could have been better"
Cons: "On both flights, i did not get the seats i had specifically booked..."
Pros: "Cabin crew are attentive and helpful."

MH609 was delayed from 2305 till 0030, all passengers board the flight and we were told to alight again due to technical faulty. Switch to another flight and delayed till 0230. By the time we arrived in Singapore, it is almost 0340. Collected the luggages, clear custom and arrived home is almost 0500. There was absolutely no refreshment provided in between, and have to switch between gates which are far apart."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. From just the flight point of view, it was correct but traveling now is more than leaving from A in order to arrive to B"
Cons: "I could not select that we wanted a vegetarian menu on the website of this company. The KUL airport is not very big, not many things to do there, very few restaurants. The issue is that if you fly with this company you arrive at KUL. Steward was kind but rough - efficient like a robot... and the headphones are very poor, I could hardly understand what was said when watching the films."
Pros: "I liked the crew, very polite and helpful."
Cons: "There then was a delay of 3 hours in Kuala Lumpur, which made the already long trip very endless."
Pros: "I liked the crew, very polite and helpful."

Cons: "Two people on the same PNR, but seated six rows apart. Say what?"

Cons: "First of all it left late with no explanation. One hour late. Crew did almost nothing. No food at all unless preordered. Not even awater. Lights out for no reason. It was as t even 7:30 when they dimmed the long guts. Only one bathroom in the back and we never saw someone go forward so we were t sure if there was one in the front. Very tight seats."
Pros: "Flight was v smooth"

Pros: "I was traveling without access to WiFi and was unable to add my checked bags until the morning them the web site wouldn't let me add the bags. I got to the airport and the airline charged me $300 in fees for my two bags. Highway robbery. I'll never fly Air Asia again."
Cons: "Usurious fees for checked bags and the flights are always late to boot."
Cons: "The flight was delayed today for half an hour"
Pros: "Boarding quickly when plane finally arrived"
Cons: "The reader board still said planned departure at wrong gate. When asked the staff said they "tried" to change it. Additional full security check before gate left all anxious and some panicked about making the flight. Add on charges- ticket no longer budget. Will avoid AirAsia in the future."
Pros: "wifi. while boarding staff try to sort us with seats numbers, good, but the procedure should be improved. friendly staff."

Pros: "I like the organized way they did the boarding. Less chaotic and allow passengers ample time to board the plane"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight delayed by around over 7 hours. Only discovered this when went to check in. This has meant we are currently stuck in KL airport awaiting a morning flight having already paid for a nights accommodation in Penang. Airline has refused to take any responsibility for the situation."
Pros: "On time"
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."

Pros: "- fast boarding - fast bag delivery - can depart earlier if all pax in"
Cons: "- delays can be traumatic for later flights in the day"
Cons: "They lost a passenger after the boarding pass was presented. Seems impossible but they managed it They charge you for luggage but only allow you 15 kilograms which is too little for a standard suitcase"
Pros: "We reached our destination"
Cons: "When researching flights, I really wish AirAsia's procedures were spelled out. Having to pay for each checked bag and each kg over a relatively low allowance was extremely annoying. Even worse, each leg of the flight (due to a layover) required payment. In addition, paying for the seat, paying for peanuts and water?? Probably the worst was the air crew refusing to give a blanket to my freezing fiance without purchasing the pillow, blanket and eye mask bundle. Seriously?? Then towards the end of the flight, the crew walk the aisles holding alcohol and perfume trying to peddle their duty-free products on the plane itself. It was quite evident by this point that the competitve ticket price is a hoax, and all that they are interested in is getting as much money from you as possible. Unless I have no choice, I will never fly this airline again. Please, warn people of these practices BEFORE they purchase the tickets!!"
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."
Pros: "The price I paid was very reasonable."
Cons: "No commets."
Cons: "It was my first time flying a LCC. OK, it is my fault for not knowing they charge much higher rate of extras for any add-ons you fail to include when you first book the flight. I get it. But why do they make it impossible to access "manage your flight" online to make necessary changes on return flight? And I got nowhere with the online chat box, s nowhere to turn.... Making such changes on Tiger Air was so much easier and intuitive. I'll never fly Air Asia if I can help it."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Ridiculous that you have to pay for water. No direction for boarding."
Cons: "Rather uncomfortable seating - very little legroom, and seat angle promotes back pain."
Pros: "Hard to complain about a $100 USD flight."
Cons: "KLIA 2 does take some time to get from the entrance to the gate. Once at the gate though the flight was delayed 45 minutes."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "In the US most recognize Southwest Airlines as an efficient low-cost carrier. AirAsia is all that with nice aircraft AND comfortable assigned seats."
Cons: "If your going to check a bag you can do it easily at the airport and you will pay per pound/kilo. If you know the approximate weight you can do it in advance on-line and save time. Example: 40 kilos /80 lbs was $40 usd."
