I had 12 kg of excess baggage so was charged $400 cdn for a flight that cost $350 cdn for my seat and 20 kg . The reservation agent refused to give me my ticket back until h the excess baggage charge was paid. I boarded the 1/2 empty plane along with many, many chinese passengers carrying 2 or 3 bags, but as a foreigner, the company rules were enforced on me only.
We had to pay bag fees that cost more than our flights! Was also an international flight where bags are free on all other airlines. Finally, there was no leg room so the guy in seat behind me had his knees digging into my back the entire flight.
Bag fees not clear and totally unreasonable, no way to check in or check bags online unless you register with their nosy BIG Points. Late by 1.5 hours! Can't get ANYTHING to eat or drink without paying in local currency cash, not even water. Seats squished together and really uncomfortable. Baggage takes a long time to come out. Poor wayfinding at Kuala Lumpur Airport.
Didn't realize AAsia was a budget carrier until I experienced and asked questions. Terribly long lines and no organization at the CNX check in. Requested a wheelchair for my father but never recieved one and no explanation. We are Thai so language was definitely not a barrier. NEVER AGAIN!!
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.
Great overall economic airline to travel with considering the price paid. I am glad to have the options to NOT pay for the food and entertainment since I never used it during a flight less than 6 hours. I am sure the food and entertainment is good for many passengers paid for them. The flight is on time, the boarding is well organized, the crew is courteous and bathroom is clean.
