Cons: "We got drinking water after landing. Would be better to provide some snacks on the way out."
Pros: "Brilliantly safety-conscious crew but very personable."

Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Portion of food could have been slightly bigger"
Pros: "Good and being on time"
Cons: "So far so good for its price"
Pros: "Good meal"
Cons: "Check in and luggage drop for share code with Thai airways. It is not clear instruction when booking with Thai airways. We lost time with Thai airways but finally need to drop the luggage at Thai smil counter."
Pros: "Lovely people. Lovely service. Good food."
Cons: "Excellent price generous luggage allowance."
Pros: "Seamless boarding and deviating."
Cons: "Thai Smole seats offer the least legroom in my experience. Very narrow."
Cons: "An hour delay for no expressed reason is not acceptable."
Pros: "I'm very justifying for the flight."
Pros: "Airfare was reasonably priced."
Cons: "Delay. This was the third flight in a week that I encountered flight delays of up to 15-20 minutes."
Cons: "Getting our bags took a long time"
Pros: "Easy to book, travel and get around with."
Cons: "The on board snack isn’t great."
Pros: "Friendly staff overall good experience."
Cons: "Only issue is there is no alchohol on these flights."
Pros: "Our train from Chiang Mai was 2 hrs late. Our taxi driver sped us as fast as he could, but we had only 15 min from check in to the airplane take off. The counter personnel were so helpful in calling the gate for permission to board. We ran across the airport and made it thanks to Thai Smile staff."
Cons: "Vegetarian food option"
Pros: "Boarding was super fast and efficient. For a 1,5 hour flight, we were given food and drinks. Can’t find that in the US."
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Overall service including f Meals and drinks provided on flight and the ground handling and air crew all excellent."
Pros: "For a budget friendly airline you can't go wrong with Thai Smile. they were on time, food was provided free, staff was friendly."
Pros: "Flew out of BKK versus other airport in Bangkok. Easier to connect to international flights. Good service and frequent flights"
Cons: "They have sandwiches on the flights but they weren’t the best quality, I didn’t like what they gave out. We had roaches next to us crawling up the wall on our last flight, ended up finding some food Trash under our seat that was missed. not pleasant."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was easy, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entetainment, food just a pretty untasty sandwich"
Pros: "Great short flight. Flight attendants were really hustling to get everyone served and picked up after on such a short flight."
Cons: "When I booked with Thai Smile direct, the booking somehow added insurance. I know I did not choose insurance. Working with AMEX ;to dispute those charges. Be careful if you book direct with Thai Smile."
Cons: "The flight from BKK-VTE did not allow online check-in and had to check in at the airport. The line to check in had 10 people in front of me which then proceeded to take over 1.5 hours to reach the counter. then was the very last person to get on the flight - the plane then didn’t leave for another 30 minutes. Thai Smile managed to make a 1 hour flight to Vientiane turn into a 4-5 hour journey between arriving early, waiting forever in the counter check in line, then being driven to the plane and actually leaving. Bangkok Airways and Air Asia (don meaung) is the better option for this short journey."
Cons: "I had a fracture in my leg several days prior to my trip so had to cancal all. My thai smile tickets were booked with vayama. They r the only suppliers whom declined my request for free cancaltion or even freeze our tickets."
Pros: "Love the AirBus 320, the service, to get all the passengers a sandwich in an hour flight is amazing! Luggage delivery is amazingly fast!"
Cons: "Would like to have later flights in the evening so connections to overseas flights at BKK are easier. Otherwise, nothing!"
Cons: "Arrived to BKK international with Turkmen airlines. Found Thai Smile transfer counter in transit zone. Was refused to Thai Smile flight, was explained that they serve only customers which arrived to BKK with Thai airways. Lost my money and had to buy another ecpencieve flight from Malaysia airlines because couldn't stay in transit zone more than 12 hours and couldn't get visa on arrival. Later coldn'd find that stupid transit policy ether on Thai Smile or Kayak. If that policy in place why not publish that BEFORE people spend their money for service not provided? Very unsatisfied"
Pros: "On boar meal was great. Customer service was outstanding!"
Cons: "They don't offer more flights!"
Pros: "Ground and in flight service, food, aircraft"
Pros: "what's not to like. Free checked bag, free food, sandwich and bottle of water, soda and hot coffee and tea at no charge. All of the cheaper budget airlines charge for everything including checked bags, drinks and food. It's only a few baht/ US dollars more than the other airlines but well worth it for what you get in return compared to the other airlines such as Air Asia!"
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Pros: "Friendly, well presented staff. It appears that most of the crew on the two Thai Smile flights I was on spoke a bit of English which was a plus. Clean and comfortable seating along with a decent meal."
Cons: "I would have appreciated a vegetarian option for the meal."
Pros: "Its only a short flight so there's not much time for anything to go wrong but it's good anyway. The staff are always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Sometimes it can be difficult to hear announcements at the departure gate but apart from that no problem. Obviously there isn't any entertainment so I've left it at 5 stars. There should be a 'not applicable' option on this."
Pros: "Food is good for a short flight. The crew were professional."
Cons: "The check-in process at terrible. No instruction to follow and no one give direction on where to get boarding pass. the line for luggage drop-off was really long without people to give direction."
Pros: "Good flight, reasonable price"
Pros: "Aircraft size was big for short haul"
Cons: "Not much to dislike"
Pros: "Everything was first rate and efficient"
Pros: "Great flight. On time. The crew was polite and professional. Nice experience."

Pros: "New and comfortable plane."
Cons: "Last call came much earlier than described at check in"

Pros: "The staff and service were friendly and excellent. Flight was fast and efficient."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything."

Cons: "Was a short flight. It was all well done."
Pros: "The seats were a good size and comfortable. I was surprised that with such a short flight we had drunk service and a light meal."
Cons: "Be on schedule."
Pros: "Good food, good service, comfy plane!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The staff at ticketing was incredible."
Cons: "The problem was with the lady at the transfer desk from international to domestic. Usually this is the simplest part of the process, but she refused to help and insisted I go through the ticketing and immigration at the main terminal, even though I often have my ticket printed there at the desk."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, food was good"
Cons: "Our flight from Chiang rai to Bangkok was s delayed. In Bangkok we did not get any help to find our connecting flight to Phuket. We had to run to get to the departure gate. In Phuket we were told that our luggage were in Bangkok..... ."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the Seat were the best Selling point for the business class"
Cons: "More leg Room, more arm rest space"
Pros: "Nice crew, empty flight."
Cons: "Took off 26 mins late w no explanation."
Cons: "I wish someone had told me that gate A8 was so far from A6 and closer to A1"
Pros: "The food is great. Even for a 50 minute flight, we had a delicious noodle shrimp dish! Nice generous serving of OJ in the morning along with a large bottle of water!"
Cons: "Whoever looked after my luggage threw it so hard that it snapped the handle on the inside, so it makes it almost difficult to insert/withdraw the handle now from the bag. Very annoying!"
Pros: "Wonderful service, great food, helpful, on time! A+ airline!!"
Pros: "Spacious cabin, fed even on a short flight. Overall very impressed."
Pros: "Service, entertainment, food, beverageS, took of perfectly on time and landed 15 min before the schedule time"
Cons: "Old (A319) and dirty (outside) plane"
Pros: "Full service (with meal) on 1 hour flight!"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "the delays"
Pros: "It was all standard, nothing to praise this air line with"
Cons: "It was all standard, nothing to praise this air line with"
Pros: "I flew to SukhoThai Thailand And the plane was an ART 72-500/600 propeller plane, so don't expect any entertainment on board. The flight was an hour and 5 min long and if you don't like to feel turbulence this is not the type of plane you want to take but you don't have a choice since sukhothai airport is only one runway. Other than that it was a good flight."
Pros: "Good friendly staff. Very nice lounge. Clean and comfortable"
Pros: "Cabin crew is very friendly and host."
Cons: "I checked in online and chose a seat forward possible, but at the airport I received a very back seat. Why check in online if it doesn’t work. Terrible for me because I always feel sick at the back"
Pros: "Not in the mood for this section"
Cons: "Late by around one hour on a mid day Saturday flight. Had paid full price to fly at the time period and hence even mor dissatisfied with late again service."
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "I wish all airlines would board from rear to front. So much more efficient."
Pros: "The flight got us to our destination, with minimal fuss and no frills, which is what we paid for - so while the stars I gave aren’t amazing, it was exactly what we paid for"
Cons: "The flight did get us to the final destination, how they lost our bags and as a result we missed our shuttle to our ferry. Apparently the bags never got on the HK flight and therefore probably won’t make it to us for a day or 2. Then while we were filling in there paper work to get our bag back, we missed our already paid shuttle bus. We then had to pay for a taxi, which was 4 Times the price..."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of kayak."
Cons: "I'd heard Bangkok Airways was the best boutique airline in Asia so I was a little disappointed. There was no vegetarian food option, blink and you missed the drink service, the plane was quite old stock but comfortable enough. Boarding wad a little confusing - multiple flights called to the same gate at the same time and not particularly good signage about what do when you got there. Having said that, the staff were be mentally polite and tried to be helpful and that they attempted any kind of service on the 40min flight from Bangkok to Siem Reap was laudable. Still better than some experiences I've had on Ryanair or Eurowings in Europe."
Pros: "Easy boarding, on time, and friendly crew."
Pros: "Polite courteous staff and crew."
Cons: "Attitude of visiting tourists "Chinese and Russian" tourists need to learn why we use a Q."
Cons: "It should be connected flight but I pick my luggage and again check inn at counter"
Pros: "great airline. Used the lounge before getting on the plane, I will use Bangkok Airways whenever I can."
Cons: "I bought a ticket from kayak but the third party have canceled my ticket due some security credit card reasons, But kayak never alert me of the cancelation and in the day of the flight i paid 3times more just to buy another ticket ,"
Pros: "Comfortable space , on time, attentive crew"
Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "At check-in, i found out that I had to either pay 4x ticket price for my luggage or buy a completely new ticket again for 2x the original price and no credit for initial ticket. So overall, very bad experience!"
Cons: "Flavour of the meals"
Pros: "Everything about the flight and the food service"
Pros: "The Bangkok lounge, the service in flight including full breakfast on a 45 minute hop"
Pros: "almost all"
Cons: "The choice of drinks and the taste of coffee"
Pros: "On time. Very professional crew. Inexpensive. Seats in regular cabin were old but more spacious than I expected. And they served a meal on a 1-hour flight."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Took 45 minutes for any luggage to appear at baggage claim; that was almost as long as the flight duration."
Cons: "The flight is overpriced at $300 return for 45 minute flight and was two hours late."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and we were given a full meal on a flight that was only 1 hour and 20 minutes."
Cons: "Just an older plane, otherwise no complaints."
Cons: "We were held up in bangkok many hours and it was unclear that I could have been waiting in the lounge with wifi- the staff did not communicate clearly and the postings about the delay was unclear and confusing I was frustrated and angered. Also arriving so late made the transport into krabi more expensive- I felt the airline was responsible."
Pros: "The pilot did an excellent job of landing in bad weather."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by about 4 hours with little information provided to us. The communication with passengers could be improved."
Pros: "Very poor boarding and disembarking using buses"
Pros: "That it was on time mostly and got us to our destination. Food was a saving grace compared to the overall experience."
Cons: "Super old equipment, no entertainment at all for an international flight at least for the longer 4 hour leg. Their motto fly boutique feel unique is a joke. You could tell they are a cheap cheap airline, they never got a gate at any airport, appeared like relegated to the far flung corners of the airport! Always busing us to and from the gates. In flight bare bones with rickety old seats. Certainly for the super budget minded a good value maybe but I won't be traveling with them anytime soon. crew kept asking me to remove my noise canceling headphones. No airline has ever asked me to coz duh that's their purpose!"
Cons: "Apart from delays it was a fine flight that got me to my destination safely"
Cons: "Why was it late ? Almost no people"
Cons: "The whole booking experience and long phone and frustrating. Long phone calls with not very knowledgeable/understanding staff for clearing payment with Momondo was a farce. Using a corporate credit card I have used for several years. I didn't get confirmation before I went to bed. Only next morning, when I woke up 5 am for getting my flight, I finally had the confirmation. Could never get it before I went to bed 1.30 but - but they could confirm the payment was done alright! Hurray! Never booking with Momondo/Kiwi again."
Pros: "The crew were faultless; looking after your every need - food choices in Business superb. And time for rest."
Cons: "Nothing really; maybe just that the A330 seat was a little old with seat controls hard to decipher."
Pros: "Good food accompanied with excellent inflight service from crew members"
Cons: "Insufficient of good movies"
Pros: "Food & services on the plane were great."
Cons: "The boarding process can be improved. I traveled with children (7 & 8 years old) and normally we would get the shortest line. But this time we had to board with other long lines which not so comfortable for our children. Also the flight was delayed by 20 minutes. Thai airways should really be improved on this area."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "The A330 was old, no charging ports for chairs, limited leg room and the entertainment system was a struggle to use"
Pros: "Courteous and professional stadd"
Cons: "Some hurry up but not overly so"
Pros: "Typical domestic coach flight experience... but the price was right. Had good personal tv entertainment available... but it was a short flight. Bring your own ear-phones."
Cons: "I was expecting some yummy Thai Food, but the food was strange. I eat everything... and I ate this food, but it was not good. The other 4 members of my family would not touch it. 2nd worst plane food in 200+ flights."
Pros: "Very short flight"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "The plane developed a fault 1h out so we had to fly around for half an hour dumping fuel before returning to Bangkok where we were kept in a transit lounge till a replacement aircraft was found. Missed my connections too"
Pros: "Airline and cabin crew services are great. Comfortable seats. Nice perfume available in the toilets."
Cons: "Board was troublesome and wasted alot of time as the tube was not used.had to walk down a flight of stairs then wait for mini bus (with very limited seats), then take it for around 5-7mins drive to reach the plane. Then wait for the previous minibus's crowd to clear then walk another flight of stairs up the plane :( I can accept this from a budget airline but not a commercial airline at a usual well-equipped airport especially when it's at its own home country."
Cons: "I found it a bit odd that there were programs available from Bangkok to Vientiane, but no headphones to listen. I guess it improved my lipreading skills though ;)"
Pros: "Had the a most pleasant cabin crew on the leg from Bangkok to Copenhagen. Made the crew on the Brisbane to Bangkok leg look a bit mediocre"
Cons: "Movie choices somewhat limited, not the most comfortable bed"
Pros: "We boarded on time, the crew were fantastic...very friendly and helpful. Food was plentiful but the salmon was somewhat dry. There were other options offered. The entertainment system worked but some more recent movies would have been appreciated."
Cons: "Very hard seats for a long haul flight and queues for the the toilets. Overall the planes looked old and tired."
Pros: "I liked that they enforced the rule on boarding by rows as many airlines have given up trying to do that and its a free for all especially with certain groups of people."
Cons: "Entertainment system and seats are old."
Pros: "Inflight good. Food average. Unfortunately there was AirCond snag and delayed for over an hour, arrived KULAP safely."
Cons: "Attentive and helpful cabin crew."
Pros: "Huge plane that wasn’t full so it was very comfortable. Boarding was quick especially since I’m a Star Alliance Gold member so was one of the first on the plane. Bags also came out first & delivery was very quick. Looking forward to flying Thai again several more times this month & wish I could experience their international service which I’m sure is stellar."
Cons: "Only thing I would mention is alcohol is not served but that’s apparently standard for Thai domestic flights."
Pros: "Crew were polite and nice. Food was good"
Cons: "Entertainment system was very glitchy, the headphones sockets on my seat were broken and loose."
Pros: "Airlines service and cabin crew services."
Cons: "The gate was the furthest one and boarding was delayed more than 30 minutes"
Pros: "The food was better than the last time."
Cons: "Crew could have been a bit friendlier"
Cons: "The boarding at Bangkok Airport was a let down. Not only was the gate far away, we had to climb flights of stairs in the process to get to the aircraft. Certainly not suitable for passengers with knee problems."
Pros: "Excellent service everything was perfect. Want to fly again on thai."
Pros: "The food was the best airline food for the whole trip. The green curry was very nice, though it would have been better with chicken instead of fishball."
Cons: "The boarding was ridiculous. We had to get off the previous flight so far away from the main terminal, and wait on the tarmac for the driver of the van to come. He was late. Luckily, the Passenger Services Agent was reactive enough to check our boarding gate with her handphone and wrote the gate number on our boarding pass. It was a mad rush from where we alighted from the van to the gate which was at the extreme end of the terminal, coupled with stairs up and down, and carrying our hand luggage. Anybody with a weak heart would have collapsed. What more when we are both senior citizens! The time to change plane was incredibly short. That was a torture. One more hour would have been just right."
Cons: "Worn out old 777. The seat cushion could’ve been made of wood!! Not good for a 12 hour flight!!!"
Cons: "Due to the late arrival of the previous Thai Smile flight in BKK we had to literally run the length of the airport to catch our next flight. We were taken at pace by an airport staff member who kept telling us that they were closing the gate so we had to hurry. Fair enough but having raced for a very long distance, minus shoes after the security check, we arrived at the gate to find that boarding had not even begun and did not for at least 10 minutes after we arrived at the gate."
Pros: "Service was great, crew on board were friendly and good entertainment."
Cons: "Was not given my special dietary food at beguinning of flight and was also not received the help I was assuered when flight was delayed."
Cons: "Food not up to previous Thai Airways offerings"
Pros: "Fairly spacious, the food was nice and we were given beverage's at a good pace."
Cons: "I was not told to put my seat belt on for landing... I was actually not aware of landing as I was asleep, but landing woke me up and it was a little concerning, as most crew's check seat belts on approach to landing."
Cons: "Lack of legroom"
Pros: "Nothing this time"
Cons: "Was not offered any food or alcohol becouse i was asleep.when it was being served......i awoke during the meal service but was offered nothing"
Pros: "Great carrier flown with all the others thai airways best!"
Cons: "Had to ask for blanket not on seat ready for use."
Pros: "The staff was nice and efficient."
Cons: "They didn't start boarding until very late and additionally the flight was an hour delayed. Understood that this is sometimes out of the airlines control as it may have been the airport's fault but they didn't notify the passengers why. This caused me & my boyfriend to miss a ferry we were scheduled to take in Krabi. We lost almost an entire day of our trip because of this."
Pros: "They maintained darkness inside the cabin, thus I could relax well."
Cons: "Food was not good, also they served dinner at 5 pm which was very early for me. I had late lunch at 1:30 and was not expecting dinner at 5 pm. I did not feel hungry and so refused the meal. Unfortunately they served only a cup cake later in the evening. It was a 6 hour flight, thus a small cup cake late in the evening did not suffice."
Cons: "Inefficient security screening. Inspected every single bag, rather than employ scanning systems. Left 45 minutes late. No reason given. Luggage took an extra 40 minutes to unpack due to "technical difficulties"."
Pros: "The seats and the crew. Snack menu. Baggages allowance. Co-operative staffs."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Knowledgeable and attentive staff who all have some experience with English. Great food and entertainment with plenty of options (just remember to select your meal choice online 48hrs+ before departure). To top it off you are supplied with a clean blanket and a pillow to insure your comfort."
Cons: "You just can never seem to get completely comfortable particularly when trying to sleep, but that is the same on most planes."
Pros: "Everything provided, lots of refreshments throughout the flight"
Cons: "Monitors were not the best for viewing movies. White wine was bitter."
Cons: "30 minutes out of Bangkok, there was a problem with the plane and we returned to the airport for repair. I absolutely value the priority on safety, but the 4 hour addition to my already long trip was painful."
Pros: "Efficient cree"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "Al ways friendly and helpful"
Pros: "A380 is a comfortable plane but Thai Airways setup not as nice as Qatar. Boarding was swift, the crew was polite enough."
Cons: "It was a night flight but I wish water was served often."
Pros: "Faultless in every way...."
Cons: "Parents that cannot (prefer not to) keep their children under control!!! Expecting the lovely Thai staff to do it for them..."
Pros: "Everything but the food"
Cons: "Food was two bland steamed fish dishes in the low calorie meal. Please have more variety as done in the past."
Cons: "Vegetarian food options and entertainimemt limited"
Pros: "Food was OK. Service slightly better than flight to Bangkok."
Cons: "Check in. Lady was not very helpful. Enquired about upgrading (to pay) as had a horrible flight over however was told business class fully booked. We were dressed nice. Boarded plane to find later on business class was only half occupied. Safety on plane was minimal to non existant. 2 year old girl freely running around and over seats, mum laid her on floor ALL while on run way taking off and on steep incline in air. Staff saw earlier on and did nothing, even stood there and spoke about it for a bit but left it."
Pros: "Didn’t even get to go!"
Cons: "Them giving me a refund"
Cons: "Boarding should improve. Other airports board Hot Seats first."
Cons: "Better customer service, very rude ground and in flight staff"
Pros: "Flying from Phuket was so easy, check-in quick and straightforward. I had chosen not to reserve our seats, and this time that meant that we were in the very back row, so had the pleasure of those in front of us in our laps, with no chance of reclining our own seats. It was a short flight, so no real damage was done."
Pros: "Great flight. Full but very good boarding process. Timely departure. Smooth flight and timely arrival."
Pros: "Competitive price,"
Cons: "Adverised price include proccessing fee. 7kg carry on stingy"
Pros: "It was only a2 hour flight."
Cons: "Nothing Free! Have to pay for water! 40 baht for a 10 baht water"
Pros: "Plane was 1h late to take off but on time at landing"
Cons: "No power plug, no English magazine, no phone allowed (even in flight mode) for a 4 hours flight. So “entertainment” deserves 2 star only. As a couple travelling together, we were not seated together, which is very annoying (that was the case for other passengers too) even though a lot of single seats were empty in the plane (crew refused to let us swap places). That’s a 2 star for the crew. Food and beverage is pay only, and was real bad, that is the 1 star for food."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable, speedy boarding and in flight service very quick"
Cons: "Ran out of wine!"
Pros: "Clean plane, air conditioning"
Cons: "Bag fees; no free food, snacks or even water"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "So far 2 out of 3 flights were delayed, the luggage was lost and no one could figure out where I can go to find it, the seats super uncomfortable, the flight attendant ignored me every time because I was sitting at the window seat"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and nice. The boarding process was orderly and the plane was clean and modern."
Cons: "Airasia is a budget carrier which will nickel and dime you. Carrie-on lugguage is very restrict on weight. The regular seat have little legroom. So it won’t be comfortable to anyone with size. Which leave leaves you with their HOT SEAT option. Even on international flight everything is al la carte, no free soft drinks. The price of checked lugguage can increase if not purchased at the time of booking. If you can jump though their hoops maybe no issue for you."
Pros: "Great service. Beautiful flight attendants."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable Disorganized check in and boarding"
Cons: "There was only one lady checking passports for the connecting Airasia flights...so approximately 50 in line and only one lady helping all of us. When we arrived to Krabi, our checked bags were at a different terminal so we had to go to the other side of the airport to get our bags that were sent from siem reap. Waste of 40 minutes!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough for a domestic flight."
Cons: "I realize that the crew is just doing their job but AirAsia in general has pretty backwards policies in comparison to most airlines. The crew will come by and ensure your device is in airplane mode. I even had one member on an extremely empty flight wake me up mid-flight, and ask me to show that I had my seatbelt on (I had a blanket on). About two minutes later, the seatbelt sign was off again. I realize there's no reason to be frustrated with a crew as they're just doing their job, but the airline as a whole is a little archaic and very strict."
Pros: "Several budget airlines make up their profits by fees. Didn't know this was such an airline going in. If you know going in you will be in a seat that doesn't allow enough leg room for your feet to sit flat on floor and a drink of water has a cost associated you may not be disappointed."
Pros: "Seating and friendly staff"
Pros: "Safe flight."
Cons: "15kg checked bag limit (most airlines have 25kg as standard). Additionally this costed 900 Bahts which is crazy expensive!!! Line up to pay baggage fees was long and slow. No other airline appeared to have that problem. No food or drink served. No in flight entertainment. I'd go with another airline in the future. We are on a 3week holiday and taking stuff out of our checked bag to reduce the weight to 15kg was nothing short of a nightmare."
Pros: "We paid extra for the quit zone seats and we ended up having having the row to ourselves. Unlike the other reviews I am seeing we were not charged an excess baggage fee and were over by five kilos. The seats were fairly comfortable but again we had the whole row to ourselves."
Cons: "No food or drink offered at all. Not even water...."
Pros: "Not a single thing"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that the airplane was half empty but jet I couldn't sit by my friend, no beverages were served and not allowed to consume your own food or drinks either"
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 space from the man next to me, the pilot who flew horrible. The food that was offerd only for money. Everything."
Pros: "Food was excellent and price for food was reasonable"
Cons: "small seats & rude staff. Didn't realize it was a budget carrier, even after reading fine print couldn't find the catch. Was charged two bag fees for same flight, bag transfer fee for connecting flight, & international transfer fee."
Cons: "Are you serious ? Checked bags are not included in the ticket???!!! Shame on you and your booking agency - we got charged an outrageous amount for something that should have been included or disclosed. I will NEVER utilize your website for any future bookings. Extremely disappointed in your professionalism."
Cons: "I booked a flight on Air Asia from Chang Mai to Krabi during a vacation in Thailand. Luckily it was only a two hour flight because the seats are absolutely tiny. I am 6'4" and am used to having pretty much zero legroom on flights, but this was another level. I had an aisle seat and had to sit with my legs completely spread open into the aisle for the two hour flight. Don't book this airline if you are over 6ft tall and plan on flying standard economy."
Pros: "No entertainment available on my flight. Only magazines."
Pros: "Cheap travel on a no frills airline."
Cons: "Didn't realize I had to buy baggage allowance 4 hours before departure. Significantly more expensive at the airport, but the check-in staff worked with us so it was only $50USD (instead of the $250USD it could have been). Do your research on the baggage policy before traveling to avoid a hassle."
Pros: "We took off and landed on time."
Cons: "There were hundreds of mosquitos on the plane and they decided to spray bug spray after they closed the doors right before take off!! Hands down one of the most disgusting experiences of my life. They also ripped us off with our checked luggage. Not pleased."
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: "everything was as described and expected... economical and reliable"
Cons: "not even a peanut or water... know before you go!"
Cons: "Had to pay hundred dollars for my bags and they charged me 80 baht for A bottle of water you need to tell people that got to pay for bags"
Cons: "This flight has no drink or food at all."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Left hate late. Charge for"
Pros: "The crew was smiley and nice. Boarding went smoothly. Purchased meal was decent and not terribly pricey. Takeoff and landing was very smooth."
Cons: "Boarding started 10-15 minutes late without any apology or announcements prior. Seats were very close together from row to row. Zero leg room. The seat itself was very uncomfortable and barely reclined. I'm also not very tall (5'8) so I can only imagine for taller people. The was no inflight entertainment or wifi whatsoever."
Pros: "The initial price"
Cons: "We didn't even get to take this flight. My wife ended up having to have emergency surgery. I tried to get a hold of them for a week prior to our flight to get it moved back a month but there was no way to reach a representative. I'm sure there would of been a fee but with the doctors note I was hoping they could give us a little break and just reschedule the flight. Even if they charged a fee I would of been fine with that but I wasn't even able to get a hold of someone to discuss that option. I just had to eat the ticket and rebook it later at twice the price."
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "I will never fly with AirAsia again. Absolutely no service on an international flight is rediculous."
Cons: "Flight departed 30 minutes late. No water or drinks included. I understand meals or snacks but not even water?"
Cons: "I bougt very expensive ticket and I had to pay 2500 THB for my luggage!!!!!/it was 20 kg luggage!!/"
Pros: "The only good was landing safely"
Cons: "Air Asia is the worst! I had no idea it was a budget airline, but if low price is what you're after don't fall for the price of air Asia flights, they charge extra for a bag over the weight limit...which is 10kg lesser than competing airlines weight limits, and also any food or drink you have to pay for, and also if You are not at the front of the plane be prepared to have other choices in food or drink because they run out of the good stuff that everyone is getting, but even the good stuff is extremely poor"
Pros: "Timely flight, clean plane"
Cons: "Charge for 8 kg excess baggage was nearly $200 US !! I will never fly them again and will not allow my employees to fly them. Ridiculous fees for any food or beverage as well. Shameful behavior for any business"
Pros: "They were able to get us on to the plane even though we were extremely late. The Customer Service Rep that helped us with our bags in Krabi was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "An exorbitant amount for bags and our luggage didn't even make it on the the flight."
Pros: "They offered nothing to drink during the flight and we were packed in really tight. Charges for checked baggage is also very high, much more than other airline averages."
Cons: "nowhere did I read that you had to pay for baggage. what I thought was a value price ended up costing much more than a full service airline."
Pros: "On tine"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "That we got there!"
Cons: "90 minutes delay leaving due to late arrival of prior flight. Little communication from the staff as to the expected departure time. Complete CF at the airport. But once we were on the plane, it was OK. No food, no drinks, not even any water. Minimal space for the knees. No baggage at all include with the fare. I would have paid for bags in advance, but website make this impossible unless you become a "member", which mean giving all sorts of personal information that they don't need. After queuing for 30 minutes to drop my bag, I then had to wait again in a different queue to pay the bag fee."
Cons: "Be careful booking through third party vendors (kayak, booking.com, Expedia...). Air Asia is just like Spirit airlines but the website won't tell you about the bag fees, food fees, EVERYTHING HAS A FEE! They charge by weight, so when traveling be ready to spend an extra 500-900 baht for 17-20 kilos in luggage weight. Also, when boarding the crew has no communication skills or control. They announced boarding for certain passengers and it became anarchy with everyone flooding to the front and forcing their way first. MAJOR SECURITY ISSUE!! We feel tricked and will never use either booking.com or Air Asia ever again!! James A. Guyot"
Cons: "Unable to check in on line."
