Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Brilliantly safety-conscious crew but very personable."
Cons: "It would been very nice to not have to board a shuttle bus to be taken to the flight in BKK."
Pros: "Crew are efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Portion of food could have been slightly bigger"
Cons: "Since no one was in first class and I was in the first row not allowing me to use the restroom Up front when there was a long line in the back seemed rude"
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: "Good job"
Cons: "An hour delay for no expressed reason is not acceptable."
Pros: "I'm very justifying for the flight."

Cons: "$60 charge for 10 kilos overweight limit. This is terrible."
Pros: "Friendly staff overall good experience."
Cons: "Only issue is there is no alchohol on these flights."
Pros: "We paid for a thai international flight which includes allowing us to use the lounge. We were told in china that WE was the airline not thai international and we could not use the lounge, had no baggage allowance other than the minimum. We chose TG because it was star alliance and we are permanent lifetime gold members. There is no reason to pay a premium for TG if it is not a TG flight and we cannot use the lounge or have a low baggage limit. The check in staff noted our bags were exactly 20 kgs each and said there would be a charge of USD45 per kilo if we had exceeded that amount. This is ridiculous given that we should have the same as UA or SG."
Cons: "I have already mentioned the false advertising and poor service in china. TG cannot tell its loyal customers it is a TG flight and then charge for TG and then say it is not a TG flight. Nothing works right in China but i hope now that we are in thailand TG will honor its normal benefits to star alliance gold and platinum members. Otherwise, we wont fly TG any more."
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: "Not Allowed to read on my kindle in airplane mode. Made for dry boring and long flight!!!"
Pros: "Overall service including f Meals and drinks provided on flight and the ground handling and air crew all excellent."

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: "Very good"
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was easy, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entetainment, food just a pretty untasty sandwich"
Pros: "smooth as silk"
Pros: "friendly, professional crew"
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: "The crew was incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. Excellent service on board the aircraft with comfortable seating. And the meal served was delicious! (I never thought I would say that about food served on an airplane)"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and cumbersome, but, to be fair, I noticed it wasn't much different than all my other flight experiences in Thailand."
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: "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: "Very good quick smooth flight. On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Staff were so friendly!!"

Pros: "Good food, good service, comfy plane!"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight, food was good"

Cons: "Freezing cold. Small prop plane wasn't at gate. Had to take a short shuttle ride from gate to plane which was on runway."
Pros: "Food on a one hour flight? Wow. Drinks coming out fast as well as food."
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: "Spacious cabin, fed even on a short flight. Overall very impressed."
Pros: "Full service (with meal) on 1 hour flight!"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "the delays"
Pros: "Staff was polite and there was good food provided even though it was only an hour-long flight. Overall, it was a good experience. Not an exemplary flight, but I would fly with them again if the occasion arose."
Cons: "Plane was a bit older and more outdated than I expected for a "boutique airline." Seats were not entirely uncomfortable, but I'm not sure I would enjoy them for a longer flight. No entertainment provided, but I wouldn't expect there to be for such a short flight."
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: "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: "Realxing in the lounge, tasty popcorn."
Cons: "Loud obnoxious and rude tourist."
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..."
Pros: "Staff, airport were great!"
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: "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"

Cons: "Just an older plane, otherwise no complaints."
Cons: "No entertainment on this aircraft"
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: "We didn’t receive hedphones"
Pros: "The snacks were nice and the crew was nice"
Cons: "Boarding was TERRIBLE!! Everyone was rushing the podium and overwhelming the employees!! Basically the employees could not control the crowd. Having lanes, or signs in multiple languages for boarding zones would be helpful"
Pros: "Great services"
Cons: "Sitting in front is better"
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: "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: "Courteous and professional stadd"
Cons: "Some hurry up but not overly so"
Pros: "Very short flight"
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."

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."
Pros: "Just like on previous domestic flight experience, I love how Thai Airways is able to promote and provide for customer comfort and service on such short flights - something that US airlines are so incapable of providing. Not only was the plane comfortable and spacious, the fact that they also served a meal on such a short flight is so much appreciated."
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: "Airline was excellent"
Cons: "Immigration in the airport took 2 hours in line !!! Terrible transfer"

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"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Business class on this short haul flight was fantastic, but sadly I don’t think this is the normal route it will take as I think they were testing it. If you can get one of these on long haul they are a very nice plane, individual compartments and some very modern touches. Windows darken without blinds, loads of space in your compartment and food was good even as just a snack."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like and if Thai Air have these rolling out for long haul I’ll definitely look at them against"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. There were stains everywhere."
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."
Pros: "The seats and the crew. Snack menu. Baggages allowance. Co-operative staffs."
Pros: "Everything was great(:"
Cons: "No massage on board, LOL"
Cons: "The company canceled my booking"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional service!"
Cons: "Nothing about the flight was bad...but just a heads up there is no alcohol on domestic flights"
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: "Good on Thai airways is almost always very good airplane food. I would buy their wraps at the store. Staff is always very friendly and accommodating."
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: "The food was not bad"
Pros: "Overall experience was good"
Pros: "The flight steward was friendly & very professional"
Cons: "The TG stewardess gave me a strange look when I asked her how do I unfold the TV screen as I have never sat at the emergency seats"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The check in, the ticket agent the service at baggage window the fact they over charge me for baggage the attitude and unwillingness to help or answer questions will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Nőt enough place"
Pros: "Sat in takeoff queue on runway for 25 mins due to traffic. Not the airlines fault however!. Budget flight and you get what you pay for. Would happily recommend and use again."
Cons: "Squeezy legroom."
Pros: "On time, well organized, timely service."
Cons: "Seats are big congested. But pushback makes up for it."
Pros: "Punctual and smooth."
Cons: "Too little leg room."
Cons: "We had to pay bag fees that were very expensive!"
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."
Cons: "Worst seat that i've ever had. At 5'6", i rarely have trouble with leg room or sleeping - not so on this flight. Seats packed so tight it was impossible to get comfortable. Flight attendants never offered water or any service on a 5 hour flight. When we asked for water, they asked for money... This takes the idea of no frills to the extreme."
Cons: "Everything the worst experience I ever had and will not be flying with AirAsia again"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and no issues with staff"
Cons: "Seats are jammed together so close unless you are under 5'5" there is no room at all. Not to mention they fill the pockets with 6 huge magazines. I'm 6' tall and I got the last seat on the plane; the seat doesn't recline at all so when people in front of me reclined their seat I had even less space. I can't say I will ever fly this airline again. It's very disappointing that there is no comfort at all in a seat. My legs were cramped and I couldn't even stretch them under the seat because my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me. In two hours my legs were totally numb."
Cons: "Barely any leg room, very tight for average to small sized people. Can't image what tall people do..."
Cons: "For tall people - there isn't very much leg space, but this was OK for a short flight"
Pros: "I am an international airline pilot and was very pleased with the professional attitude and service."
Cons: "The pilot Disney inform about the duration of the flight and didn't warn about upcoming tribulations."
Pros: "We were connecting and the connecting flight was late and the CSR held the plane just for us."
Cons: "Once on board the crew was horrible. Because of the problem, some other groups of people decided to take our seats to spread out. So I just took the seats immediately available to us that were open. The flight attendant decided to check our boarding pass to see if we were in the right seat, and of course we were not (because the other people decided to take our seats as we were the last to board). I figured this was just fine. We even paid extra for the assigned seats but for the sake of getting the flight going due to our tight connection, we took the nearest available seats. Unfortunately, a group of 6 people had to take 5 minutes to rearrange the seats because the flight attendant "insisted" we take the seats on our boarding pass. It would have been much easier if the crew would have just let us take the seats that were available instead of trying to rearrange the other group."
Pros: "Flight was cheap"
Cons: "Extra high baggage fees No onboard meals/snacks, even shorter flights had meals Rushed boarding, uncomfortable seating"
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."
Pros: "Good food warm service"
Pros: "It felt like the cabin was not pressurized correctly. My ears were plugged for hours after the flight and I had a bad headache. Our travel companions also thought the cabin pressure was not right."
Pros: "Very attentive crew, good food, on time arrival."
Cons: "Kayak is typically great but not when you purchases Airasia services. There is no customer service for the Americas. The app changed my flight date and I need to get a refund. Nothing. I contacted twice with 24 and 48 hrs using their form. Nothing. Don't use air Asia from the states. There's no phone number for customer service. They acknowledged my request and it's been 2 weeks with no follow up when they said they'd would with in 24 hrs. I am currently disputing the charges bc I never flew."
Pros: "Seats were okay."
Cons: "The boarding is chaotic and not organized. People cut I front and the airline didn't do anything to keep order. The flight does not even serve you water on international flights! They tried to charge me $1.50 U.S. for a cup of hot water to keep my hands warm. It was freezing. Poor experience overall."
Pros: "The price was the only thing I liked about this airline"
Cons: "They charged us 900 baht per checked bag because we didn't check the bag in hours before the flight. It is my least favourite budget airline."
Pros: "Just about everything. very smooth operation."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Left hate late. Charge for"
Cons: "No water offered on a 2 hour flight? Baggage fees i was not informed of. Awful. Never again."
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple hours without notice. A one hour flight became an 8 hour journey. Seats were small and uncomfortable. I was sitting next to a host of characters that were all concerned they would miss their connecting flight. No tv or entertainment on seat."
Cons: "The check in people are out there to collect money from people by lying and scaring us that our hand bag won't fit in their compartment. The hand bag that fits in every single airlines that we have been on... Wont fit in air Asia. So basically they made me pay extra fees and then let me take the bag. It was such a disappointment on our vacation. Never air Asia again."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, delayed, extra fee for 15kilo checked bag"
Cons: "Air Asia extortionist checked bag fees are outrageous. I would never fly them again."
Pros: "Speedy boarding process."
Cons: "Tried to pay for checked bags online 4 times and my payment was denied every time. Was then charged 1800 baht ($50) at ticket counter to check two medium sized bags. When I told the representative this, she only said that I needed to call customer service (no number provided) to complain. Staff on flight skipped over several rows, including mine, during beverage service. Despite being one of the priciest airlines I flew domestically within Thailand, they charged for everything. And not Thai prices. Will do everything in my power to avoid flying with Air Asia again."
Pros: "nothing besides nice crew on board"
Cons: "nothing free, even water on board. They are charging tripled price for bags if you did not check it in online. Personal in airport is not helpful."
Pros: "Worst airline I've ever traveled on, their baggage fees are excessive their flight was a disaster it was delayed they didn't give us any information checking in was horrendous they were very disorganized. Their seats are tiny I am 5 feet 6 inches and I barely fit comfortably. Honestly I will definitely avoid AirAsia in the future I I traveled on many other airlines and found this to be the worst."
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: "Nothing. Will never, ever, ever fly them again."
Cons: "First off, with no notice, they did not allow without a fee a single bag. None. And they changed $100 for the bags. Told us it was because we used Kayak, and not directly through them. It took off two hours late. Another first, I have never seen an airline not offer you water. Nothing. 2 hour flight, nothing. The landing reminded us of the old People's Express, Scare the hell out of you. Use Thai Air. Even on one hour flights they feed you and offer you refreshments and good service. I repeat, do not fly Thai Air Asia. When I return to the States, will be contacting Kayak about our experience."
Pros: "Very late flight with no explanation. Boarding was crazy. Free for all."
Pros: "I got to the airport with my wife and when I checked our two average sized suitcases I was told it would cost an additional 6000 baht - even though I had already paid for one suitcase per ticket. The check in person was helpful but I couldn't find my proof of payment so my wife and I spent some frantic minutes pulling weight out of our bags and into our carry on finally getting the price down to 3800 baht. I've since found my proof of payment and hope that Air Asia will reimburse me but the whole exercise sucked hugely."
Cons: "Food and entertainment was not even present on the flight. You had to pre-purchase food to get any and none was sold on the flight, the didn't even offer a glass of water, not even for a fee."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay and big check in lines with no priority for people whose flight was coming up soon"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Worst checked baggage policy ever. In flight they nickle and dime you like I've never seen. The spirit airlines of Asia. Honestly never flying them again"
Cons: "When I was booking Ticket, I did not see anywhere asking or suggesting for buggage fee, but at the counter they told me that i do not buggage, so I needed to pay three times more cost. I felt really bad. I think, it is cheating and probably will not fly Air Asia again."
Cons: "There was a sick passenger on board and the entire flight crew attended to him. No food or drinks were served, and no attention was paid to any other passengers."
Cons: "I made online check-in, paying the bags and seats in advance (additional total HKD 544 for two person). However I missed the check-in for bags with 5 minutes. They refused to take the bags and told us, we can get on the plane without bags if we want. They did not show us any solution so we missed the plane and have to buy ticket for the next day for almost the same price. For that plane they accepted the payment for bags but refused to give the priority seats which I have payed for the plane that I did not board. Be aware that they do everything to charge you extra money!!!"
Pros: "Make sure you pay for checked in luggage online and not at the airport. The price difference is quite a bit."
Cons: "Expensive fees for checking in luggage"
Pros: "Crew and flight was ok."
Cons: "The extreme surplus on the weight of the luggeage is not in line with other agencies when traveling out of europe. Or the minimum of 15 kg is too low, not in line."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff and clean plane."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in regular seats and hot seats were all gone! Luckily only 2of 3 seats occupied so I sat sideways.no entertainment."
Pros: "Terrible, nothing was positive"
Cons: "As far as what we didn't like, there was a price to pay for the low cost of our flight tickets. The airline's hidden fees are unbelievable. My husband and I paid an astronomical up charge for checked baggage based on merely the timing of when we checked in our baggage. Should we have notified our checked in baggage hours or days earlier it would have been 'much cheaper.' Yet, the website poorly emphasized this baggage policy during purchase. The airline itself is terrible. No beverages for customers without purchase, which is understandable (I guess) if it's a budget airline but in addition, outside food and beverage is not allowed. I felt like the entire flight was a classroom for passengers to be scolded if they looked even slightly comfortable. Not to mention the hidden fees of air Asia makes it far from a budget airline. Air Asia should be removed from kayak - will never fly with them again. Fly Thai air!!!"
