Excellent value for a budget airline
Cheap flight, on time, great staff. Great budget airline.
Layout and space in emergency exit row.
The worst kind of budget airline. To be honest....the plane was not that bad. Would have been good to have some food choices and some water. What was by far the worse is the passengers/customers that this airline attracts. Coughing and spluttering all over one another with no masks. Just disgusting. Pay for a better carrier and get a better class of passenger.
Cons: "More food variety"
Pros: "Very smooth and easy process boarding and taking off"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "delayed landing because of chinese reasons"
Pros: "A nice experience overall. Flight was quiet so plenty of personal space."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from check in to arrival. Bags were delivered timely. Flights were on time."
Cons: "No entertainment options. Little to no food service."
Pros: "The crew are ok. They should find jobs with other, better airlines."
Cons: "Flight delayed on both legs. Delay management horrible, call centre was worse."
Pros: "Except for a 1-hour delay, overall the flight was good, smooth and enjoyable. Loved the inflight meal. For the price we paid we got meal and 30kg baggage allowance, we thought that was just value for money. And they departed from KLIA and not klia2 which is more convenient."
Cons: "Flight wasn't on time to and from HKG."
Pros: "The staff were very kind, the seat had a great amount of leg room."
Cons: "There was no alcohol on the flight."
Pros: "Crews are nice."
Cons: "Seems like Malindo is starting to degrading the service quality. The flight I took before: they change the airplane to batik which was worse with no entertainment, smaller seat pitch, etc. I book Malindo for a reason and paid for what expected using Malindo!! If they had to change the plane they should've given better one or given back compensation to passengers! Now this flight, they didn't activate the entertainment till way later and turned off way too early. They didn't give any earphone as supposed to. Malindo's service has become bad."
Pros: "For the price that we paid, it included 30kg baggage and refreshment (orange juice, water, coffee, a slice of pizza and a muffin) - it was worth it. The legroom is spacious, the seat was comfortable and the cabin crew was awesome. Flight was on time, check in was acceptable (considering people travelling from Bandung has a lot of check in baggage due to shopping)."
Pros: "The service is good in general."
Cons: "The boarding process could be improved."
Pros: "The 32" pitch giving more leg space, better than MAS and AirAsia on that count. Good baggage allowance."

Pros: "Leg space and good arm rest"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment (movies)"
Pros: "The seats are more comfortable compared to the other budget airlines."

Pros: "I have flown Malindo before and I have been happy about tbeir customer service."
Pros: "In flight meal."
Cons: "Got told luggage would go straight to bali from origin in Nepal. Waited at baggage check in jarkata just in case. Sure enough, our baggage comes out. Transfer to domestic terminal was almost impossible since we were given no information and our flight number changed completely. All of a sudden it was batik air not malindo, which has a completey different terminal. Will not be travelling with malindo again."
Pros: "Check in and boarding we're both quick and easy. There were unsold exit row seats on our flight and the flight attendants lets us change seats. The in flight meals were quite tasty."
Cons: "The beverage options were limited and mostly consisted of different flavors of fruit soda. The flight attendants sprayed the cabin with a strange aerosol before landing. Trash was not collected during the flight."
Pros: "Service and comfort with blanket, and entertainment movies."
Cons: "Luggage collection rather late in Bali."
Pros: "Same as previous, no fuss."
Pros: "No fuss, well organised."

Pros: "The best thing is the free luggage allowance of 30kg each. They had some snacks and entertainment as well."
Pros: "I was very impressed given it is a budget airline."
Pros: "somewhere between a budget airline and a premium service. For the excellent price i was excitement pleases with the service and comfort. Would definitely fly with malindo again."
Cons: "my expectations were more than met."
Pros: "Love the width of the seat, the free 30kg luggage allowance and food. All provided without extra cost."
Pros: "Malindo Air impressed me above and beyond with their services, from start to finish! I don't think I've had a better experience with an airline before - keep up the amazing work Malindo!"
Pros: "The plane was quite new, very modern, and well equipped with entertainment features. Services were good and all staff spoke English. Good amount of leg room in the economy seats as well."
Cons: "There are small snack & water given previously, but now only water."
Cons: "Terrible call centre. No reply on the list luggage phone number. Absolutely terrible service"
Cons: "Flight had a new schedule without prior notice We're unable to take this flight. Did not get any refund"
Pros: "Proactively checking the boarding pass to shorten que of the boarding process."
Cons: "Cabin very hot. Aircond broken??"
Pros: "Horrible, tv not working. I asked for no vegan and they forgot to bring my food. After I mentioned, they finally brought and was vegan! Plane very unconfortable and old. Totally different than the connection place that was way less time on air."
Pros: "Good legroom and friendly crew"
Cons: "They said that they provided best quality beverages (they gave example as Starbucks), but just mineral water coming out"

Cons: "Not too much delay as usual"
Pros: "Checking in goes well"
Cons: "after booking, air asia changed the flight schedule back teo hours. Then on travel day the flight was delayed another hour. So we arrived around midnight. Air Asia Is somewhat annoying as they’re always trying to sell you something during the flight"

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Bigger aircraft"
Pros: "Our seats were comfortable and the landing was smooth"
Cons: "All food and drink had to be paid for -even water!"
Cons: "For some unknown reason, Kiwi.com booked this as a self-connecting trip and now my luggage is missing (didn't connect). In addition, they CHECKED IN FOR ME and selected middle seats. I am incredibly unsatisfied with this service and disappointed in my kayak experience as a result."
Cons: "International travelers should not use Air Asia because of baggage limitations and application of excess baggage charges. It operates as a commuter airline."
Pros: "Everything was good ..."
Cons: "... we were just a little bit delayed."
Cons: "Very specific about weight of bags"
Cons: "Regarding the luggage. Myself need to purchase luggage but some of the people not need to buying. The Airasia staff informing that my luggage and laptop more than 11kg and need to purchasing. This is first time, I hear that laptop including also. As per my view, I had saw some of the people more heavy and biggest than me but still can go through. It is because I am foreigner and they are local person."
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: "Delayed 2 time"
Pros: "We arrived safe"
Cons: "Left large with no explanation. Uncomfortable. No entertainment or free food. I mean none"
Cons: "Was taken aback at the baggage fee and the low amount they give you - 12.5kg before charging is pretty low."
Cons: "They are very strict about the weight of your luggage and will not budge on the overage charge. They serve fish for breakfast...gross."
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean!"
Cons: "2 months travel in SE Asia, 11 flights , 7 airlines. Only this flight did they want to charge hundreds for our luggage. They brought it down a bit but still cost more tha the tickets."
Pros: "Missed flight because the Air Asia app could not process my boarding pass. Had to leave my arrival Terminal 1 to pass through Immigration to reach Terminal 2 because Air Asia has no counter in Yerminal 1. All this led to a time consuming exercise and missed counter check-in time. Terrible experience."
Cons: "Flight was DELAYED twice. AK called it re-schedule, but with only 2 hours prior notification, it's purely DELAY. Poor coordination with airport, gate changed without proper notification."
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."
Pros: "friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "delayed flights"
Pros: "very affordable fare"
Cons: "No beverage even water. Bring your own water"
Cons: "No attention to our needs. I booked a wheelchair for my mom from manila to bkk. No wheelchair was provided from malaysia to bkk. I even push my mom in manila airport coz they said they dont have enough staff. My mom had a stroke and she walked all the way in kuala lumpur. What a lousy airline you have"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "WiFi with some entertainment resources"
Cons: "No food/no drinks, unexpected"
Cons: "The leg room is deplorable. My knees were continuously hitting the hard seat in front of me and going sideways wasn't even an option. I've never had this happen to me before. I'm a female and 5'9 and this is the least space I've ever had on a flight. So uncomfortable I can't imagine a long flight with this airline, which is good to know because now I will not use them for flying to Malaysia from NYC. Also both flights were delayed by nearly an hour each."
Pros: "Air Asia! Ground staffs are good service and helpful."
Cons: "Almost impossible to request wheel chair service for elderly even if we are willing to pay for it. Any add-ons or extra services come with unreasonably hefty (and hidden) price tag. I would absolutely avoid flying AirAsia at all cost in the future."
Pros: "Comfortable flight and friendly crew."
Cons: "Long check in lines at Siem Reap airport. High baggage fee (USD 36) for not having pre-booked a checked bag online."
Pros: "Surprised to see t&Co coffee is serve, good n keep it up Flight is early 20mins on reaching kl! Very good"
Cons: "When i arrived at airport i was inform that y must paid us$ 70 extra for a 15kg bag(was the only bag for two passwngers)When i arriVed at airport i was inform that y must paid us$ 70 extra for a 15kg bag(was the only bag for two passwngers)"
Pros: "We had 30 minutes delay for a passenger to clear the immigration issue."
Cons: "Nothing special."
Pros: "Early departure and landing one hour ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "The check-in baggage came out one hour later the landing."
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: "Everything was there"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 9 hours out of Colombo. Missed our connection to Ho Chi Minh city. Colombo ground crew and customer service didn't have any idea about the status of the flight."
Pros: "On time flight. Pleasant attendants"
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "All food and drinks were sold at additional cost, not even small snacks or water included in the price of the flight ticket."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Upon check-in we were informed that we were not permitted to bring any checked luggage without paying for it. The amount they quoted us for two bags was nearly $800 CAD and more than twice the cost of the ticket!"
Cons: "Baggage Fees It seems as if this is not an unusual complaint. Maybe the airline should reconsider their policy in a gesture of customer service rather than an opportunity to deceivingly charge exorbitant fees."
Cons: "The seats were awful, outdated, no charging ports, tv didn't' work, air didn't work, crew were awful/rude... even checking in my bag upon arriving at the airport was an ordeal. If I can help it, I won't be flying Air Asia again!!!"
Cons: "I was charged $84 at the airport to check my bag. I have not flown with Air Asia in years and I did not remember that I would not be able to check my bag for free, let alone have to pay $84. I was shocked and disgusted. Air Asia should make their baggage fees more visible and honest so when a customer books a flight, they can take those fees in to consideration. I will spread the word to others that Air Asia is dishonest and should be avoided at all costs."
Cons: "Really choppy flying and a bad landing. No free food or even drink, no space"
Pros: "There is no tv and there is internet but no place to charge your phone or tablet, so in a 4 hrs flight the Internet service is useless cause in 1 hour the battery will just go down. I ordered the food and the chicken was cold. For boarding, they should call by row and not having everyone lining up. The crew was nice and the girl at check in very helpful."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight on Thursday and did not send me the refund."
Cons: "It wasn't that we had to buy allowances for luggage ahead of time. So we were checking in, we ended up paying a little over 2000 HKD (~$280 USD) just for luggage (50kg). Needless to say we were pretty pissed about it. As long you are careful though with this point, it is just any airline."
Pros: "Didn’t even get to go!"
Cons: "Them giving me a refund"
Pros: "Smiling srewardess"
Cons: "IF MY BAGGAGE WASNT LOST"
Cons: "Excellent flight. No complaints, good boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Not worth the price savings"
Cons: "Know that everything is charged in flight and the bag at check in , been traveling the same bag all over the world and I had to check in my backpack and extra high cost"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "There was no beverage service per se. the cart came out, but I was never offered a beverage."
Pros: "Quick, easy flight"
Pros: "Again, it's good for a budget airline."
Cons: "More legroom"
Cons: "A seat that did not jolt and move around. Legroom seat on offer for free as no one had them."
Pros: "Great flight. Full but very good boarding process. Timely departure. Smooth flight and timely arrival."
Pros: "I don't remember ordering food, but I got some and it was okay. Knowing AirAsia, I'd better check my card statement."
Cons: "Why give out three or four zones for boarding but only use zone 1, then anything goes afterwards?"
Cons: "It just does not make any sense to me that I would need to leave the airport, collect my piece of luggage, to then go back on the boarding pass/baggage kiosk, to then get on a larger line to drop off my luggage to then go to another desk where I needed to take a number to pay for my suitcase. I’ve traveled all over the world and have never experienced anything like this before."
Cons: "We were running late for the flight due to long lines at immigration which was not Air Asia’s fault, but when we finally made it to the check-in counters we were misdirected several times and given conflicting information. On top of that after we finally checked in we had to go another counter to pay the baggage fee and we’re misdirected there too. After wasting 25 minutes we made the flight, but only because it was 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Efficient loading of passengers. Friendly staff. Convenient to off load from both ends of plane."
Cons: "Narrow seats very cramped when seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Clean plane, air conditioning"
Cons: "Bag fees; no free food, snacks or even water"
Cons: "I always use Kayak to book an international flight Chiang Mai to Denpasar, with my luggage checked through. But this time I went to International in Chiang Mai to check in and found that you had bungled the booking. You booked me Chaing Mai to Bangkok on a DOMESTIC flight, and expected me to get onto the next leg, International,Bangkok to Denpasar, in 2 hours. You left me only 2 hours to disembark in Bangkok, get luggage at the Domestic carousel, go through customs, take luggage to the Check In counter in the International, get boarding pass, go through customs and security. Then race to the boarding gate for my INTERNATIONAL flight to Denpasar. What a trauma. The International Air Asia check in was mobbed!! I only made it in time because staff at the check in found me by chance and put me to the front of the line. I won't use Kayak again, after using you for 15 years. You have a nerve selling such a ticket."
Cons: "I got my second section e-ticket, but Thai ground staff didn’t allow me to transfer, so I have to exchange money and pay the visa fee, and then arrival Thailand, and hard to find a place to departure, also, the flight got delayed...."
Pros: "The service and overall flight experience with Thai AirAsia was superb."
Cons: "There was absolutely nothing that I disliked about the flight - really great overall!"
Pros: "Temperature was too low for any reasonable comfort"
Cons: "We weren’t aware that a long haul flight would have no entertainment at all unless prebooked and paid for! No blankets or pillows for offered or complimentary hydration! We felt very uncomfortable"
Cons: "They wouldn't let us on the flight, even though we applied for a Vietnam passport. They were rude and I. Addition to ruining my vacation, they didn't accredit me my money for another flight."
Pros: "We arrived"
Cons: "Started with booking, a package includes seats but the seats included we're all full,of i.e. need to pay more again.but100 Dollar for credit card booking? They are crazy! Check-infamily with just computers is terrible, didn't worked properly. Included food in package but can't choose, both legs the same food. Baggage damaged. Long walk in DMK to transfer, inefficient. Overall just a shitty experience!"
Pros: "Very delayed with no announcements!"
Cons: "Absolutely, no let room."
Pros: "Really easy boarding process, clean, modern plane and good flight service."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment and could have more leg room."
Pros: "Good: cheap and on time. Bad: aways slow check-in and uncomfortable seating. Everything a budget airline should be."
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "Sears were so uncomfortable. Did not recline. Sucked for a 4 1/2 hour flight. Could not rest comfortably."
Pros: "Great service. Beautiful flight attendants."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable Disorganized check in and boarding"
Pros: "Nice equipment and price. On time."
Cons: "Being a discount airline you preorder and pay for any meals or drinks you want. It as only a 40 minute flight so it didn't matter to me. Just know it ahead of time."
Pros: "Hot seat was roomy."
Cons: "Bought fully flexible ticket with express boarding but we were all loaded onto the same boarding bus so there was no express boarding. Everyone gets off the bus at the same time."
Pros: "All went okay"
Cons: "Small seat pitch, only 29 inches"
Pros: "We weren't able to pre-book baggage on a third party site, and the direct AirAsia site was crashing the day we had to book. The baggage cost more than the flight. Never again."
Cons: "Baggage cost"
Pros: "The flight itself was very reasonably priced."
Cons: "They charged us for a checked bag and it is on a sliding weight scale. If you check your bag be prepared to pay more if it is over 15kilograms. Also, there is no complimentary beverage service. Snacks and drinks are available for a fee. The seats are pretty small. If you have longer legs expect them to hit the tray table even when it's in its full upright position."
Pros: "It is a good option for an affordable airline."
Cons: "There weren't tvs or complimentary food or drink. But I know this is because it is a budget airline. Also, the seats are very cramped."
Cons: "The pilot Disney inform about the duration of the flight and didn't warn about upcoming tribulations."
Cons: "Even for a reduced fare, I've never been on any other airline that even makes you pay for water. I've flown many other reduced fare lines that still offer you a beverage and a small snack, even if only peanuts or pretzels. That this flight offers no beverage or food without payment is disappointing."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Flight id designed for people who travel super light. Tourist who do not read reviews are taken by surprise at the last moment (at the registration desk) and have no choice but to buy the second ticket for their luggage. The web site does not fully disclose luggage policy. No leg room"
Cons: "There were many additional charges for luggages. The most annoying thing for me is their seat assignments. For couples who bought tickets together, seats were assigned at different locations even though the flights were not full. This happened on all four flight segments for us. And it was not just to us. It happened to many other people on our flights. When I asked at the check-in counter at Singapore airport to change the seat assignments, the agent lied to me that there are no other seats available. In reality, there were many empty seats on all our flight segments."
Pros: "Not much of anything this discount carrier is only cheap if you like traveling with just the cloths on your back."
Cons: "4kg of luggage costing 1600 baht. You dont even get a drink of water for free."
Cons: "Luggage fee should be more clear when booking"
Pros: "Fast boarding. On time."
Cons: "No snacks - not even cookies or nuts. No TV. Seats did not recline. But they did go out of their way to try to sell Air Asia souveniers"
Pros: "Overall all went very well with no shortcomings. It was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Well the only thing to make crew/ overall experience EXCELLENT would be more really pro-active, caring sevice mentality ... but really it verged on EXCELLENT anyway, just because I have no criticisms. Well done!"
Cons: "Caution if you wait to pay for luggage at the terminal, you willget robbed. A 22kg extra bag cost $280 USD . More than the cost of 3 passengers to fly from Bangkok to Pucket"
Cons: "I understand cutting back on certain physical luxuries (i.e. space, water, snacks), but when you cut back on customer service is when I sever ties."
Pros: "You get what you pay for"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room. I'm 5'9 so I know I'm tall, but I manage on normal flights perfectly fine. The seats lean forward so in the upright position you feel as if you are falling forward. Terrible comfort but it was only an hour flight so I survived. Anything longer than the hour from Phuket to Phi Phi, I would never fly this airline. Like I said, you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Helped me with additional baggage and didn't exploit that I had forgotten to book my luggage."
Pros: "On tine"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Had to pay $36US for each checked bag for each segment of the trip. So for two of us with a stopover enroute to Chaing Mai, had to pay $144US. Will never fly Air Asia again. And I will be wary of using Kayak, as we were not sufficiently warned other than - Airlines may charge extra for baggage."
Cons: "I booked for luggage and there was no record in the airline of it, so I had to pay again"
