Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Kind and funny!"
Cons: "The weather, but pilots did great despite it."
Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Cons: "Asked for an isle seat; was stuck in the middle. Way to long of a flight for that"
Pros: "Their plane"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew were fantastic"
Cons: "Entertainment choices"
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Pros: "My first experience in business class"
Pros: "They took care of you. Meals were good. Excellent airline"
Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."
Pros: "Excellent attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit bumpy!"
Pros: "The boarding process was nice because Star Alliance gold members can board early and get miles for the flights. They also had lots of movie options. Decent flight."
Cons: "I bought my ticket on kayak because on the search filter, it said 1 carry-on bag and 1 check-in bag but after the e-ticket was issued it said that it was a no luggage and no meal ticket. I had to pay excess in baggage fees ($100 AUD for 1 check in bag) and during the flight, all you get is coffee, tea or water. You have to pay for meals or soft drinks. I think if I bought on air New Zealand website, I would’ve gotten a better idea of all the fare types and pay a little bit more to get the proper amenities."
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "service, food, good pilot"
Cons: "nothing everything just perfect"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Fantastic selection of entertainment, friendly crew, and tasty food. I’ve enjoyed flying with Air New Zealand!"
Cons: "The lumbar support in the seats is quite inadequate."
Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"
Pros: "The premium econ seat and services."
Cons: "The sold out flight to air New Zealand. Had to purchase bags again even though already purchased."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "We fly a lot and have flown American, European, Asian airlines but this has to be the best experienxe ever. First, their checkin is all automated, even baggage. That makes the lines really short. Their staff standing by to help at every moment. When we used another airline in Australia Jetstar, we waited in line for one hour and then were scolded for being late! We even had to pay for our water and the staff took turn scolding us over our overhead bin stuff. Boarding of NZ airline was so comfortable, without pushing or crowds. Staff always welcoming you with a smile. Seats are wide and we were given free drinks, free headohones, and wait for it.... free dinner! And all served so politey and in the most gracious manner as if we were their guests. We were so taken back by their service and this was the aecond time we have flown with them in 10 days. My young daughter thought may be their staff gets paid more so they seem to be so much more happy. I also think that there is something when you dehumanize your customers by charging them for water and being uncaring to their needs. The staff also starts to treat the customers as cattle. Besides Southwest Airlines, I havent come across one another airline where the staff treat their custmoers with reapect while charging them for water. So airlines, take note. I would pay $50 per ticket extra just to be in NZ airline."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was okay. Short enough that small space was manageable."
Cons: "Would have liked in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Pros: "Two toilets in Premium Economy, comfortable seat with blanket, headphones, and large pillow"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "$220 to take an extra bag. This is stupid. Why no disclosure about bag fees"
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "The plane and staff were very welcoming."
Cons: "The connection was very tight. Luggage was lost, but was sent to us the same day. It was left in Auckland,accidentally."
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly, food was excellent, entertainment choices were fantastic."
Cons: "The seats were a bit uncomfortable, we were in coach, but they were not horrible. Just lacking lumber support and didn't recline very far."
Pros: "Crew are good, TV shows are included"
Cons: "Charging for movies seems a bit too low cost!"
Pros: "Love the variety of movies etc available on every flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "It was okay, we made it to Sydney safe and sound, but I'd expect that anyway. We had works deluxe seats. Food was terrible service was on par with the terrible American carriers. The very first New Zealand air flight apparently set the bar too high. It was fantastic! The other 3 were nothing in comparison."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."
Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."
Cons: "I got upgraded to business :)"
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "Loved the landing lollies :) I was in a comfortable seat for a 3.5hr flight, and the entertainment system was on par with Qantas. I've long been a staunch Qantas traveller but will remain open to air NZ when travelling to NZ in future."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat back did not recline, free still water not available on touch screen ordering"

Every jet star flight I’ve ever been on has had an issue. Really frustrating

Cons: "All perfect recomendable thanks"
Pros: "Exactly what we expected from a budget airline."
Cons: "Dragging the luggage between international and domestic terminal wasn't fun."
Cons: "Could have left on time 2 hours late leaveing NZ"
Pros: "The crew in the Melbourne airport were amazing! There was confusion with my bags and they sorted it out without any stress!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t very comfortable but it was a very clean plane!"
Pros: "We enjoyed our low cost flight with Jetstar. Check in was quick and easy. Boarding was also. We didn't purchase any food or entertainment which is why I gave each of those categories 1 star (there's no N/A or doesn't apply-type option)."
Cons: "Seats on Jetstar are a bit uncomfortable but for a short flight, it doesn't matter as much. Also, the luggage went to the wrong carousel for many folks on our flight."
Pros: "No redeeming factors with awful customer service. I missed my connecting flight due to another flight being late. As a result, I called them to notify them I would not be able to make the flight and asked to switch flights. After explaining the situation, they refused to waive the flight change fee and even charged additional fees even though I had no control of the situation. They took advantage of the situation I was forced into and have no ethics. Absolute garbage."
Cons: "See above. A terrible airline who treats paying customers with disrespect and takes advantage of the situation. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Italy a okay flight"
Cons: "Don't have WiFi connection"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service was terrible. The entire experience was really incredibly disappointing. I will never book Jetstar again."
Cons: "They charged me the price of my ticket because my carry on weighed too much. The staff was very rude!"
Pros: "Nice customer service at check-in to help with our bags."
Cons: "Was not well-informed about the excessive baggage fees at the time of purchase. You have to pay for everything on the flight - food, drinks, entertainment."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment that's it lol"
Cons: "Didn't like the delayed flight at all which had us literally running for our connecting flight which meant we didn't have time to eat after a 10 hour flight which had the most horrible food and menu I've ever seen so I literally starved for a whole day thanks to jetstars horrible menu and also did not get my luggage till 2 days later worst experience I've ever had not happy to pay $1200 and starve #worst experience ever!!!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, easy interstate flight with no hassle."
Cons: "Jetstar boarding pass system is very silly. You can't use the email ones on your phone and have to actually print it out. As a suggestion.. maybe have a unified option instead? Charging sms service is ridiculous.. it is 2017!"
Cons: "I had to pay $160 for luggage. I didn't want to check it, I wanted to carry on my backpack and small luggage case. Didn't realize BOTH had to be below 7 kg which is absolutely nothing. The check in man was rude and definitely could've helped a backpacking student as myself out... the flight was practically empty I don't think weight of luggage mattered!"
Pros: "Up front seat, very comfortable! Comfortable enough for me to sleep through the flight which it doesn't happen ever on any flight I've been on"
Cons: "First flight I've been on that I got nothing to complain about! Crew were friendly everything was awesome!"
Pros: "The flight is like Southeast Airlines, so don't expect any entertainment or special features. The ride was a bit bumpy, but the plane handled the conditions well. The flight was for only 2 hours and 48 minutes. We didn't get anything to eat unless you paid for it; the food didn't look that appealing to me. Overall, I just happy to be in Australia safely."
Cons: "No entertainment or good service."
Cons: "Ridiculously over priced baggage fees. I couldn't believe I was being charged just as much for my flight as I was my checked bags. They hope you book with them because they're slightly more affordable than other companies but then charge you for absolutely everything once you get to the airport. Staff seem to know its unfair, but unwilling to do anything to help you. I'll never fly with them again."
Cons: "160 dollars to check a bag. I'll never fly with this airline again"
Pros: "At least I got notification about delay right before going to the bed and did not have to wake up at 4 am"
Cons: "Flight status online at Jetstar website indicated on time departure, had to call to verify delay. Our boarding pass, issued at 2:30 pm still had 7:30 am boarding time. Flight was delayed because of airplane maintenance but we got no compensation, just $10 Australian voucher to use at the airport to buy food."
Pros: "Not much about JetStar or Kayak"
Cons: "I like many others, had to pay $320 to get our suitcase on the plane. JetStar said that it was kayak's fault for not including the luggage allowance at the time of booking. First off no one in this world has ever heard of this predatory way to rip people off. I consider it dirty and extremely underhanded. So you book your "economical flight through Kayak and they do not include this fee for $11. Big deal you say, well it gets to be a very big deal. We paid about $600 for our seats only, without knowing that Jetstar would want to also be paid extra for our baggage. They call it baggage allowance. If Kayak knew what the hell they were doing ( they are supposed to that is why we pay them) they would also know about the baggage allowance and it would have been $11. However when we arrived at the airport Jetstar wanted another $640 for our two 20kg bags. We were able to talk them down to $320. We went from Auckland to Sydney and for our connecting flight they wanted an additional $640. I said no, and that they could keep the bags. At that point I was told to get control of my emotions. Eventually we did not have to pay any additional "baggage allowance" to get to the Sunshine Coast. If I had kept control of my emotions they would have charged us at total of $1280.00 for our luggage on a $600 pair of connecting flights. What bullshit!!!!!!! Also wanted $4.00 for any kind of drink on board the plane. don't even think of food or a drink on board the plane unless you have money to burn!"
Cons: "This would have been my 4th and final flight with Jetstar. I was allowed to board the 3 previous flights with my luggage without any problems but when I got to the gate to board the plane this 4th time I was refused because of the weight of my luggage which forced me to stay in the Auckland airport for 24 hours. I was given two choices at the gate (after already passing through check in and security), I could either pay $160 or throw away half of my luggage. This was outrageous and unethical as Jetstar offered my two impossible choices. I did not have $160 nor did I seem to have time to sort through half my luggage to throw it away which left me missing my flight. The Jetstar employee, who was as cold as ice, then walked me out where I was told I would have to catch the next flight, the next day, and needed to pay $75 to transfer my ticket and pay the normal fee of $40 to get my luggage checked. AFter sleeping in the airport, the next morning I went to check in only to be told the flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues and was transferred to another airline (Qantas: which was very good! You should use them). I would have been happy to pay the normal fee of $40 at the gate but once they open the gate the fee goes through the roof. This is unethical when it forces a person to not board there flight to another country. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH JETSTAR UNLESS YOU HAVE ONLY 7KILOS OF LUGGAGE WHICH IS BASICALLY A BACKPACK."
Pros: "Left & arrived on time -AKL to SYD."
Cons: "Not as low cost as advertised. Hidden costs: pay extra to pick a seat. Any seat. No luggage allowance, must pay extra for 1st checked bag. No complimentary drinks, must pay top price for coffee, water, juice. Airline coffee in paper cup. Credit card or debit only. Toilet use might be free... did not ch check."
Cons: "they charged $150 to check in a bag over 7 kg (15 lbs). the size of the bag was fine (20"), and if you fill such a bag with regular clothes, two pairs of shoes, and a toothbrush, you will easily hit 9-10 kg. so this airline expects you to travel with a 20" bag that is only partially filled, which is ridiculous."
Cons: "Website was not clear on baggage policy during booking and upon checking in, we were slammed with baggage fees of $160.00 NZ for each bag. Not happy."
Cons: "I dont know if it was kayak, flight network or their fault, i just know that once i got to the check in counter i had to pay an additional 160 to ship my luggage absurd. The inly thing i know is that i ll not use them anymore. Plus plane was so old i had a spring coming out of my seat on the plane."
Pros: "Frustrated by how late I was allowed to Check-in, then had to rush to the plane. Classic problem, but, why you don't pay for a budget flight."
Pros: "Our flight suddenly changed from 7:20am to 3:45pm and then 4:15pm. There was little to no apologies, explanation or communication. We got a $20 food voucher for the entire delay."
Pros: "Nothing - terrible service."
Cons: "All they cared about was charging us for our carryon. They lost my luggage and I missed my meetings in Sydney. Nobody to complain to they have no staff in Sydney. They also tagged my luggage to the wrong passenger and it was an ordeal to get it back once they found it. Talk about a security breach !! Never fly them again !!! Will be sending info to media!! Paid $320 for extra baggage fees coming from an Air Canada business flight ticket with carry-on - they didn't care!! Kelta at ck in only cared about charging us and when I told her to put the bags in my name she said don't tell me how to do my job I know - and then bag is in another person's name and he had to leave asap in Sydney and it was an ordeal to get report done!! They charge for coffee on board and flight attendants were also rude!! Where is the customer service? Terrible !!"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late and then we waited on the plane while they unloaded all the cargo bins to find three golfers bags who evidently did not make the flight. That extra time made us miss our connecting flight to the US. We spent almost 3 hours in the Sydney airport getting the run around on what we were supposed to do. When we checked in Queenstown for our flight the person at the desk must have know we would not make our flight as she did not give us a boarding pass for the Sydney to the US flight, but gave no directions on what to do if it was missed. I mentioned our connecting flight and the close connection to the flight attendant and she said it was not their fault."
Pros: "Easy of Boarding"
Cons: "Jetstar is a low budget airline similar to Jet Blue in the US. When you book ensure that you pay for one or two pieces of luggage if you don't you will get a rude awakening upon check in. We had to pay an extra $200.00 to get our luggage to Cairns. Ensure you buy luggage if you book a Jetstar flight on the internet."
Pros: "Definitely no frills. Pay for coffee? No water?"
Cons: "Check in process is extremely slow with long lines. You are not able to check bags and are charged significant amounts to check in which cost even higher if you do it at the airport. Anything other Jen water is charged while on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge me for a luggage $230.00 for 19 kg. It's a rob. The plane was late.No offer for a glass of water.Staff not to much friendly"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They left my luggage in Auckland (I live in Dallas) AFTER forcing me to pack everything into it due to the dumbest "1 carry on" rule I've ever heard. The check in counter was severely understaffed. The whole experience was terrible and it was literally my first experience."
Cons: "Extremely disappointed in this airline. Got to the airport for my flight from Auckland to Sydney to discover my checked bag for my flight had been canceled on my ticket and then was forced to pay $116 USD to check one bag for a 3 hour flight because of a mistake made by THEIR system! When I asked if there was any other options I was told to make my bag lighter for carry on by abandoning some of my belongings or that I needed to pay the fee. None of the staff was willing to even check if there was any other option or to look into why my baggage allowance mysteriously disappeared off my ticket. God help anyone who can't afford to pay this ridiculous "airport baggage fee", they'll be left stranded. Jetstar is obviously more interested in profits than their customers. I will NEVER fly with this "airline" again!"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "The flight was late. The airline had no problem charging us for every little thing, and I had to pay extra just because my bag was 1kg over the weight limit. The snacks were overpriced and the menu was very limited."
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Ok"
Cons: "There was no entertainment"
Pros: "the crew were as helpful as they could possibly be but the airline and it's policies suck"
Pros: "I liked that Jetstar communicated with me and kept me informed about what was happening with my flights. I liked that the Jetstar staff in Sydney helped me to get a room for the night, the hotel people were helpful and friendly, the shuttle bus drivers were helpful and friendly. I liked that Qantas helped me transfer my Jetstar cancelled flight to QF148, so I was able to fly Auck to SYD. I did like that Jetstar provided free in-flight entertainment to all passengers after the flight form SYD - DPS was dallied 3 hours on departure."
Cons: "I didn't like that my Jetstar flight was cancelled and I missed my connecting flight to Denpasar. I didn't like that I lost a whole day of my holiday due to the flight cancellation, I missed my pick up transfer from DPS airport to my hotel in Ubud late at night, and I was not refunded my night's booked accomodation at my Ubud hotel. I didn't like that I had to go through immigration, pick up my baggage in SYD before I could get to the Jetstar counter to connect with my flight to DPS. because of this delay I missed my connecting flight. I did not like that My one day delayed connecting flight from SYD to DPS was delayed a further 3 hours departing from Sydney."
Pros: "There was a security incident at airport. Jet star counter staff was aware of this, but still close the counter and left about a dozen passengers stranded in Bali overnight. The staff was rude and terrible, at first saying it was our fault for not checking in online (not true)"
Cons: "Horrible airline no wonder comedians on NZ and OZ make fun of this airline."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, not bumpy. That's it!"
Cons: "I will never fly this airline again!!! I have flown to Sydney from the U.S. at least 7 or 8 different times and have NEVER been treated so poorly! This was a 10 hour flight and the flight attendants wouldn't even give you water!!! You had to pay $4 a bottle!! That is utterly ridiculous! I just got off an amazing domestic flight with Delta on only a 5 hour flight and they gave us FREE unlimited soft drinks, juice, coffee, tea and WATER!!! They also gave nuts, pretzels and cookies and we're kind enough to give my 3 children extra. Also, to our wonderful surprise their inflight entertainment was free as well! I PAID for inflight entertainment on Jetstar & my TV barely worked! The food was horrendous and ridiculously expensive! When I asked if I could have a cup of water, the flight attendant on Jet star told me to go to the back of the plane and get it myself!!!!! Are you serious??? I went to get it myself and then got yelled at by another flight attendant who told me, " you're not allowed back here!" Get your stories straight Jetstar ugh attendants - or how about you give your passengers FREE water on their 10 hour flight!! Because I had to get the water myself, I then got trapped in the back of the plane because ALL the flight attendants were in the isles for 30 minutes taking the entire planes drink orders & everyone had to pay by credit card! When they weren't in the isles being cashiers, they are found sleeping in the back and knitting! Really? This what I paid for- to watch them sleep & knit??? And me or my family (3 children) couldn't even get water or decent food? Thanks for nothing Jetstar!!! Never again!"
Pros: "They were very efficient at boarding, and crew was nice. All our flights were on time and had no issues."
Cons: "The baggage fees were all over the board, for the same piece of luggage I paid anywhere from $28 (pretty standard) to $49. I'm not sure what dictates the difference, as when I printed off the itinerary for the 4 flights we had they all said $28 and no one could give me an explanation of why the change or difference. The bag was in within the standard weight limits. Had I know that I probably would have chosen a different carrier as they weren't that much less expensive."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Not even free water or coffee, chips."
Cons: "excessive baggage fees unfair for international travelers...should state on their web site this airlines is not international traveler friendly we charge high rates for baggage so do not use us unless you have no bags...crew was unfriendly and land reps must get paid commission on what they can overcharge passengers."
Pros: "The staff were very good."
Cons: "I booked a seat and did not get the seat l had booked."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, sufficiently soft and reclined nicely. We brought a lot of food on the flight, knowing they weren't providing any, and they didn't care that we had a lot of our own food."
Cons: "It was a long flight (10 hours) without being provided any food or beverage other than water. The prices for the food and beverages will very high. They could have offered at least a beverage other than water for free."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My carry on was 3kg overweight.. they made me check it and charged me 160.00nz$ Ordered water and coffee on the flight and was told they would e-mail me my tax invoice.. still haven't recieved it."
Cons: "I will never fly Jetstar again!! ONLY AFTER I BOOKED AND PAID, the system allowed me to book my baggage. Imagine my disgust when I was charged over $100 per bag!! If I had known the outrageous baggage charge, I would not have used this airline, and I never will again."
Cons: "Every review regarding baggage is true - they will getcha. Make sure to weigh your carry on as well as your checked. My friend ended up having to check her luggage cause they weighed her backpack! The flight is cheap but if you don't pay up front for the extra weight you will be screwed on the day of."
Pros: "The timetable suits my schedule."
Pros: "Ground staff is friendly and helpful during baggage check-in. Change of gate is notified via SMS & mail."
Cons: "Air conditioning at departure hall was not working properly. It feels rather humid while waiting for boarding."
Pros: "Don’t remember, that’s how much of an impression they made."
Cons: "Doesn’t matter because I won’t be using this airline again."
Pros: "The flight i booked has 2 segments, both by Air Asia. However, when i arrived in KL, i was forced to exit the terminal, having to go thru immigration/custom, end up paying 2 separate luggage fees, lots of hessle. Since i never received Air Asia booking#, i was not able to check in, etc."
Cons: "I will avoid booking this way and for sure avoid booking Air Asia"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Nothing is included, but you should also know that going in"
Pros: "The crew were pretty quick to help."
Cons: "The seat was moving of its own accord. I should have paid more for a flatbed. I don’t enjoy the music played at the start and upon takeoff. I wanted to sleep but it was interrupted all the time."
Pros: "Efficient boarding with room in overhead bin. Chips and salsa were great"
Cons: "No entertainment or entertainment options on an 8 hour flight. Food choices were too similar."
Pros: "Airport was quick but not because of airline."
Cons: "How is there no WiFi or entertainment on a 8 hour flight? And having to buy water or anything to drink. Will think further about flying them for a longer trip."
Pros: "All set up for reasonably comfortable short haul flight and prices ok at similar to Thai Air"
Cons: "Priced the same, but unlike the wonderful Thai Air (my only other long haul experience) my ticket price and 8hr flight didn't include any food (Thai Air had 2 complimentary meals) and no one told us we could pre order and pay for food, so missed out when it was brought round. They charge to rent blankets and pillows (free on TA) and couldn't even help me with a glass of drinking water other than offering to sell me a bottle but at $10 USD as they didn't have any change (TA provide complimentary bottled water plus comp tea & coffee. Think there needs to be clearer info/advice 're refreshments for customers on long flights like this"
Cons: "AirAsia is stepping the game up. Food could be better but the staff are always amazing with some of the biggest and whitest smiles I’ve seen. Thank you."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and unevenly spaced out for an overnight flight it wasn’t possible to get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Had layovers in Malaysia and ended up being charged $145 extra dollars because of a checked baggage (which was supposed to be included in our ticket already)"
Pros: "They got me to my destination"
Cons: "No legroom, very narrow seating, no meal, expensive and no on board entertainment for a 7 hour flight"
Pros: "Not a lot Very disappointed overall"
Cons: "Setting was promised we had spare set next to us but not so. Flight was not full but we were squashed and so disappointed"
Pros: "Flatbed services"
Pros: "Fast boarding ND excellent service"
Cons: "Very limited moving space"
Pros: "crew are so helpful"
Cons: "hard seat...no cushion...air temp very cold and no free blanket."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My flight was 2 hours late causing me to lose my connection ticket. This, because your crew did not do a proper pre-flight check and notice the emergency lighting was failing. Poor maintenance leads to tragedy and unneeded lateness. Making the cabin 16 degrees for 8 hours may sell rental blankets, but it makes people sick as well. Shame on you."
Pros: "Took X Air Asia from JAI DPS on flatbed. Excellent!"
Cons: "The only problem was the attitude of the air crew when I asked them to help me put my luggage up. I am short - 150cm, no way I can put my carry on without help. It was not heavy, but their face showing dislike. Can’t they see that I am vertically challenged."
Cons: "The terms and conditions say that you are not permitted outside food or drinks, but none are provided. Phones are not permitted and there is no entertainment system in lieu of this."
Pros: "Flight boarded a few minutes early and arrived in Honolulu 40 minutes ahead of schedule. I upgraded to the "quiet zone" area which was perfect, very minimal disturbance from the flight crew."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. Especially when paying $15 for a meal. The portions were small and the rice was kind of dry. Maybe add a dessert to the meal might be worth the $15 price tag."
Pros: "On time Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food portion size, taste & quality Seat is little too tight"
Cons: "After boarding flight they took so long to provide food. Kids were literally crying of hunger."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They accused me of stealing water."
Pros: "The crew on the aircraft were great."
Cons: "The boarding crew need to be trained on streamlining boarding procedures and how they communicate and interact with passengers. Room for improvement"
Pros: "Staff were helpful while checking in."
Cons: "I don't understand how paying for checked bags ahead of time would be priced any differently than doing it at the check in counter, but the difference is exorbitant. It's a cheap airline for a reason and they get their money back by charging you for everything, including water during the flight. It's better to pay a little bit more for a real airline where standard things like carry ons, checked bags, water, and drinks come complimentary, especially for long flights."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Not much comfort, no free food, although cheap."
Pros: "Comfortable Seats in premium economy"
Cons: "No entertainment 11 hours KL to Auckland and no movies!! Should have made up time leaving Coolangatta and still able to land on time in Auckland - people missed connections. Not good enough when they had power to go a little faster but they would rather inconvenience a number of people than spend a little more on fuel to make up time ."
Pros: "The leg room was decent on this flight and luckily the plane wasn't full, so we had an empty seat between us. Great for getting some sleep on an 8-hr red eye..."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic. They just board everyone at once. But I was impressed that they still loaded pretty quickly."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The couple sittle behind me really don't know how to take care of their children. Open music loudly and the children keep kicking my sit the entire flight."
Pros: "Everything was running smoothly"
Pros: "Flew premium flat bed and had the best sleep on a plane ever! Food is very good and very cheap, as are the drinks. For the price I really don't know how they do it- superb!"
Cons: "Some crew very friendly, others less so."
Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "web site booking luggage fee"
Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Nothing but a seat"
Pros: "On board, the crew were attentive, as much you would expect from a low cost carrier. The environment was comfortable and service could not be faulted."
Cons: "My experience in KLIA2 prior to the flight was poor. As we were travelling with an infant, we had to check in at the gate. Signage was unclear and staff lacked training, which was why it took us a while to find the Premium check in line. KLIA2 is its own mess of convoluted processes and a layout that defies logic."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours 40 minutes"
Cons: "No food or entertainment for an international flight of 6 hours."
Pros: "Crew were joyfull and let you forget the exhaustion of the flight"
Cons: "Seats too small cant fit a big at all needs two chair to be comfortable"
Pros: "The only thing there is price but with my paggage it's big mistake"
Cons: "Free 25kg paggage"
Pros: "Price was ok"
Cons: "They charge for water! They keep it cold and if you ask for a blanket...they'll rent you one. No snacks...unless you pay. No entertainment on an 8 hour flight. Need I say more. I travel for business and do not recommend Air Asia for the mentioned issues."
Pros: "On time, comfortable seats, clean airplane."
Cons: "No entertainment system (even paid), no debit card accepted for on-board food purchases."
Pros: "Same as above Both legs of the flight were pretty much the same."
Cons: "Same as above, plus they also made it very difficult to sleep because they didn't turn off the lights for very long. All I wanted to do was try and rest a bit since it was such a long overnight flight, but between the screaming babies in the rows next to me, and the fact that the cabin lights were only turned off for about 4 hours, I really didn't rest much at all."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful, there was a decent amount of leg space."
Cons: "The inside of the plane seemed old and there was no entertainment system even though it was a long flight. They spent way too much time trying to sell overpriced food."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean toilet, on-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "After catching the overnight flight from KL to Gold Coast, we were woken to announcement that food would be served (3 hours before landing) I reluctantly looked at the menu as I was still sleepy. But decided on purchasing the "ALL DAY BREAKFAST" only to find they no longer serve the only breakfast item on the menu due to its lack of interest."
Pros: "I got to my destination. Literally the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Airfare was reasonable. Crew were good. Check in and boarding were not bad."
Cons: "Food not very good . At back of plane nothing left if you have not prepaid. Seats very uncomfortable. Air conditioning too cold. Price of baggage a bit dear. But you get what you pay for mostly"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Took one hour to check in. Charged $70 for EACH normal carry on. Air temperature in cabin bloody freezing. Crew are pleasing on the eye, but they do not appear to be interested in the comfort of the passengers. Same trip with LAN Sydney to Auckland....free food plus all drinks...Air Asia even a cup of tea came with a price. Similar fares charged by both airlines. Entertainment a joke! Not one monitor or adapter in cabin!!!"
Pros: "It's cheap."
Cons: "Forgot to reserve my package and I paid more than round trip ticket price. I'd rather use Korean Air."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Very basic - but the worst part came on my 2nd flight - lost the connection and spent 90 min to get rebooked on next flight. This started with being given incorrect info from their call center about a connecting flight to Penang that was made back in December."
