Thai Smile must be the only airline in the world that still doesn’t allow mobiles and iPads to be used during taxi, takeoff and landing. No inflight service due to COVID but a little snack and water handed out as we left the plane. I also like the deplaning by row, I wish more airlines did this

Cons: "An hour delay for no expressed reason is not acceptable."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "we had only an hour to get through immigration and connect to another flight...with a child in tow. There was an airline rep that met us at the plane and drove us to the next gate and directed us to a quick immigration line. Fantastic!"
Pros: "Great flight on Thai Smile."
Pros: "friendliness of staff"
Cons: "Entertainment program was boring, leg space limited"
Pros: "Comfort and ease of boarding always makes Thai airlines a great trip. The staff is so helpful and friendly."
Cons: "There wasn’t any tv to watch and not by way of magazines either."
Cons: "Getting our bags took a long time"
Pros: "Good services"
Cons: "Good service and comfortable"
Pros: "The relaxed atmosphere and attentiveness of the flight attendants"
Cons: "The distance of the terminal to the aircraft"
Pros: "Seats were comfy and staff helpful and nice."
Cons: "$60 charge for 10 kilos overweight limit. This is terrible."
Cons: "We did not receive any information as to why our flight was late."
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: "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."
Pros: "friendly, professional crew"
Pros: "I would highly recommend flying with this airline. It was a very efficient process and the staff was not only helpful but very nice."
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."
Pros: "Friendly staff through every step of the way."
Cons: "Vegan food options would be a wonderful addition. Everything else was great!"
Cons: "There's only one down side of this flight. The Lucknow international airport terminal is downright embarrassing. There are four or five desks to handle passport control. That's fine, but none has a label on it as to who should be at which. NonIndians should go to the extreme left one. Then they have one xray machine that all arrivals have to put their carry-ons through while the previous flight is trying to put all their heavy luggage (they are most likely all male workers coming from the Gulf). Then there is a small, rickety belt with everyone crowded around for the luggage. Well, there are two belts, but only one is functional. And to top it off, most of the luggage carts have at least one broken wheel! Amazing and embarrassing when arriving from any terminal almost anywhere! Lucknow, you have a lovely domestic terminal, wake up and build an international one! Shurum ki bat ha!"
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: "There was no line to check in and the attendant very easily accepted our luggage to check in with no weight, size, or payment issues Was pleasantly surprised to get a snack box with a sandwich and beverage on such a short flight LOVED the online videos (practical jokes program), where no headphones were needed to enjoy"
Cons: "Fish sandwich wasn't my favorite"
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: "On boar meal was great. Customer service was outstanding!"
Cons: "They don't offer more flights!"
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: "Quick flight"
Cons: "40 minute delay"
Pros: "Great service, very amicable staff, excellent plane"
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."
Cons: "The crew had a poor attitude and even rude, I asked to move to get past the food trolley as my 4 year old son needed the toilet and they just said wait, they would only have to move 2 metres. We were sitting directly behind upper class but were not offered the chance to use the forward toilet even though there was no one sitting in that section. They seemed to have an attitude problem and not at al like Thai International who are excellent. will never fly again with Thai smile."
Cons: "I don't want to recommend to others to use this flight following reasons: (1) I can't use Thai lounge with star alliance gold card. (2) Thai air sold the Ticket, but boarding ticket issued by Thai smile. (3) a ground staff ( reissue staff)is unfriendly particularly those who is at Thai office, airport. (4)Thai smile is a low cost air line. So Thai air shouldn't sell this kind of ticket It hurts fame of Thai airs hospitality."
Pros: "Good flight, reasonable price"
Pros: "Very flight and check-in process"
Pros: "Aircraft size was big for short haul"
Cons: "Not much to dislike"
Pros: "The gate agent saw how tall my husband was and upgraded us to the exit row for more leg room which was awesome. I was feeling a little sick and the flight attendants were great to get me water and make sure I was doing ok."
Cons: "I don't like fish and they offered a fish sandwich but it was only an hour long flight so I was fine with it."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and did a great job in the short time they had."
Pros: "Great flight. On time. The crew was polite and professional. Nice experience."
Pros: "Chaotic check in process, ok boarding process, poor entertainment and nothing for vehetarians"
Cons: "The price. This flight specifically was more expensive than others"
I fly Bangkok Air regularly. Could say I am loyal to their airlines and program. The only two comments of critique I could offer is (1) using the credits from accumulated miles is not as streamlines as some of the other airlines programs I am or have been a member of... and have lost opportunity to use them before expiration. (2) Sometimes, the plane is boarded / un-boarded with a service bus that has to navigate the airport and adds unwelcomed overhead time (especially during de-boarding). If have checked luggage this is transparent; if only have carry-on will slow your departure from Suvarnabhumi by ~20 minutes or more. Otherwise, a fine airline.
Pros: "The seat that I picked had lots of leg room."
Cons: "Better selection of movies."
Pros: "everything was perfect"
Cons: "would never go back to other low cost airline"
Pros: "Very friendly crew! Good food! Boarding was a little confusing but it worked out. The plane was old but it wasn't bad. I'm fortunately tiny and fit into tiny Asian seats. The boutique airline marketing is super hipster in how ironic (inaccurate?) it is, but it was a cheap flight so..."
Cons: "The ATR-72 is a ROCKET PROPELLED TIN CAN IN THE CLOUDS. The pilot did his best to fly around the thunder clouds but the turbulence was absolutely terrifying. For this reason alone I'm probably going to skip this airline again to fly in something that won't make me throw up."
Cons: "Es una aerolínea de muy buena atención. Los aviones son buenos y cómodos. Súper puntuales. Nos entraron a una sala VIP en el aeropuerto de Chian Mai aún volando en económica. Muy recomendable"

Cons: "Took off 26 mins late w no explanation."

Pros: "Full service (with meal) on 1 hour flight!"
Cons: "Neither British Airways or my travel agent were able to solve problems created by British Airways 2 delayed flights meaning I could not make the meetings for the trip was planned and therefore I missed the flights and the meetings. Both British Airways and the Travel Agent said the other party were the ones to solve the problem"
Pros: "I’m always impressed that Bangkok Airways serves food on short flights. The chilli chicken was actually not bad."
Cons: "I like to fly with this airline because they offer access to their airport lounge to all passengers. Unfortunately, the lounge at Chiang Mai airport for international departures has closed permanently."
Pros: "Good friendly staff. Very nice lounge. Clean and comfortable"
Pros: "Bangkok air is easy to use we love the Airport Lounges free for all passengers."
Cons: "The web site is undependable. It took 3 tray when I booked my tickets, Later We tried to do online check in and pay for extra luggage, (suposed to be a 20% discount) for 3 days before leaving and it would not complete the requests. Kept saying server terminated connection. When I checked at the Airport I told them and they would not do any thing. like extend a discount on extra luggage. Sorry Cannot...... All the Thailairlines play games with extra luggage and sadly it seems BKK Air does now too... Still better then NOK or Air asia"
Pros: "Smooth and efficient check in counter. Friendly crews."
Pros: "Flight was at time."
Cons: "After 13 hours they should give us a worm wet towel to fresh our face"
Pros: "Food ok"
Cons: "I wish all airlines would board from rear to front. So much more efficient."
Cons: "They call themselves Bangkok’s boutique airline but they’re just the same as any cheap asia airline who looks to make it up on extra fees for baggage."
Pros: "I get early to the airport and wait at the lounge it was mice to relax a bit All the crew are great Sire i will fly with you keep doing a geat job"
Pros: "Economy class seats relatively roomy. Staff very professional pleasant and accommodating"
Cons: "Boarding a little unorganized"
Pros: "In-flight meal, commenced on time."
Cons: "Always seems like they are using bus gates- not convenient!"
Pros: "Good meeting the schedule, fast handling in all points"
Pros: "Food served was fantastic considering they were short 1-hour flights. Staff was super courteous. Loved the "extras" like a fresh towel."
Pros: "The flight was fine and the Bangkok airways flight staff was excellent. I am always impressed by how much food they are able to serve in a short flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure who's fault it is but the baggage service at Bangkok airport was lousy. It took over a half an hour to get the bags out"
Pros: "I loved the service. First of all, they fed us and it was unexpected. The crew was professional, boarding was easy. It was a very enjoyable flight."
Cons: "Our Flight was cancelled and Never recieved an email. Was not told until we arrived at the airport well over 2 hours before our flight. They said all the direct flights had been booked so our 3 hours travel day turned into a 7 hour travel day with two flights and a layover. On top of that, they then lost my friends luggage in the confusion. Hardly helpful with the rescheduling or lost luggage. Only plus was that when it was found it was delivered to our hotel."
Pros: "Loved the lounges. Appreciated the complimentary food and drinks in both the lounge and during the flight"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad. Plane was kind of old."
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 crew was nice & everything was fine once we actually got on the plane."
Cons: "We checked in, got misinformed about location by information desk, went to lounge which was great but about 5 minutes before boarding were paged. We then had to go back downstairs & instead of a domestic flight they suddenly changed us to international. Then we had to go through immigration, worried we'd miss flight."
Pros: "Our flight went very smooth. The crew members were genuine and truly made every effort to make sure everyone was comfortable. Great flight."
Pros: "Turkish air and Bangkok airlines don't like to give boarding passes for each other. So both times we had to go to the transfer desk. This is OK as long as there's time between flights. Bangkok airport is VERY long and the desks are at opposite ends of the airport. The folks at both desks were very helpful though."
Cons: "We had two flights with Bangkok airways. Both were delayed."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The bus to and from the plane was a nuisance and the food was horrible. the seats were hard and the tray table was dirty. I spent a lot for our tickets going around Thailand and definitely Bangkok Airways did not impress us. Thai Airways wasn't much better."
Pros: "Amazingly good food. Very comfortable seats."
Pros: "For a discount airline, they had their own lounge and still provide food for a flight that is about 1 hour from CNX to BKK. Things went well."
Cons: "There really was nothing. There was no entertainment per se. Something showed on the monitors but no headphones are provided."
Pros: "Fantastic lounge Good and quick flight"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "The flight was delayed about 20 minutes. They were very good about keeping us updated. The service was wonderful on board there was no entertainment available on board. The meal was very good."

Pros: "The staff was incredibly nice! I especially enjoyed the waiting area lounge - the snacks and treats were delicious! Nicely done Bangkok Airways!"
Cons: "Why was it late ? Almost no people"
Pros: "Everything! Crew, food, seats, etc. For economy it felt prettycomfy"
Cons: "Very crowded"
Pros: "I love that Bangkok Airways provides a lounge with snacks and beverages for all passengers. The sweet cake and coffee in Chiang Mai was excellent, and who doesn't like some pre-flight popcorn?"
Cons: "I didn't realize there were on-flight meals or I would have ordered a vegetarian meal. Not a big deal because they are short flights."
Pros: "Service onboard food"
Pros: "Flight crew attitude was professional and friendly. Food choices were great."
Cons: "Had minor problem boarding. The airport was very crowded. I arrived 4 hours before flight time and had to wait until 2 hours before the flight to check-in. because they were not open. Airport was very crowded with few places to sit. Had to stand most of the time. Passing through security took a long time. The airport being crowded was not the fault of Bangkok Airways. On the plane, the seats were small and I had difficulty with the seatbelt being too small, which made it a little difficult eating the meal. The tray table was broken. I informed a flight crew member and she made a note of it for repairs. I do not remember her name."
Pros: "Free lounge is great"
Pros: "Fast and efficient."
Pros: "This flight was on time"
Pros: "Everything was straightforward and easy"
Pros: "I like the price and the short lenght of time to it took."
Cons: "Can think of anything at this time."
Pros: "Great flight. Full but very good boarding process. Timely departure. Smooth flight and timely arrival."
Pros: "It was only a2 hour flight."
Cons: "Nothing Free! Have to pay for water! 40 baht for a 10 baht water"
Pros: "Good food, fast service, I suppose it was okay for a low priced carrier."
Cons: "No frills airline and a broken seat. Flight attendants were rude."
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."
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: "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: "I am an international airline pilot and was very pleased with the professional attitude and service."
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: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "Everything else sucked."
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."
Pros: "plane was clean"
Cons: "Crew did not communicate anything about unexpected wait times. Flight was hot and uncomfortable"
Cons: "The space from the man next to me, the pilot who flew horrible. The food that was offerd only for money. Everything."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time, professional staff. Can get cheap food ahead of time, but only recommended if you won't have time to eat otherwise because the food isn't great."
Cons: "No individual seat entertainment, less legroom than other carriers"
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: "it was so cold on the plane and I told the crew, they just say no blanket and left. The chair is so bad, narrow and uncomfortable."
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"
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: "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."
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"
Pros: "Just about everything. very smooth operation."
Cons: "No water offered on a 2 hour flight? Baggage fees i was not informed of. Awful. Never again."
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: "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."
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."
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: "The online system did not work and we were asked to pay 900 for each 15kg suitcase."
Cons: "2 hour flight with no drinks."
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 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."
Pros: "I flew out of BKK to CNX. Everything was smooth from start to finish. Boarding a bus at the terminal in BKK for the ride out to the aircraft was the only detractor, although not totally uncommon in Thailand."
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: "The flight itself was not bad."
Cons: "Did not notice that the flight did not come with a checked bag. We had 7 adults plus a infant. The flight itself was reasonably priced compared to others when we went to check the baggage they said we had to pay separate which was news to me and ultamitly my fault for not catching that as I was booking it. In Thailand my wife who is Thai tried to figure out the situation and the person at the check in desk was very rude. We are used to having a checked bag for an infant but half the size of a adult ticket so our infant bag. So we had 10kg bag for my daughter then the rest of our luggage at the 15kg weight. We ended up having to pay for 900baht per checked bag up to as many adult tickets. But they counted our first bag as a adult ticket so at the end we had one extra 15kg bag at which they charged us excess baggage fee of 400baht per kg... They would not let us switch the order of the bags so the smaller of the bags would fall in that category. So our baggage price was much more expensive then the initial flight itself. It would not have been that bad but the guy that we had to deal with was very rude on top of all that sudden news. If the customer service was better and more polite it would have been much better to deal with."
Cons: "Checking was busy and disorganized. Plus I was charged for everything. There was a surprise checked bag charge. My girlfriend is in a wheelchair and can't travel without checking a bag with medical supplies. In the US, the charge is usually waived. On this flight, not only did we get charged, but we got double charged for not booking the checked bag ahead of time. In addition, nothing was for free on the plane. It was a terrible travel experience."
Pros: "On tine"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "They serve nothing for free no even water and will try to sell you teddy bears and other junk. You are also no allowed to consume you're own food on their flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The airline itself I would not travel again. It is ridiculous to only allow a bag of 30lbs. That is not realistic when tourists are traveling. Especially if they have bought memorabilia"
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: "Couldn't check in online. Their website kept crashing. We tried to pay for bags but couldn't. At airport they charge us 5000 baht, almost 10 times the online rate. Tried to explain our situation. And they didn't care. Not willing to help us at all. Felt held hostage. No boarding pass without payment."
Cons: "First I never got information that we had to pay for a checked in bag let alone the weight limit. I had to pay $100 for my bag alone and it was not overweight. More over my boyfriend is over 6ft tall and his knees were slammed into the chair and they did nothing to try and be accommodating. Everything was for charge including a glass of water absolutely ridiculous. Lastly it felt like we were on a flying market they were selling stuffed animals down the aisle."
Cons: "The ABSURDLY high hidden luggage fees are ridiculous. Even beverages on board the flight are for purchase only; I didn't think an airline could do that with water. Will absolutely never fly with this airlines again."
Pros: "Overall, it was a fast and easy flight. The boarding was fast even though it wasn't well organized, and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The checkin process was frustrating. I thought I'd be a responsible adult and check in ahead of time, especially since I didn't have any baggage to check. Come to find out, the security personnel at CNX don't recognize the AirAsia E-ticket. When I tried to print a paper ticket at the self-serve station, I couldn't because I had checked in the day before. So to finally get my hands on a paper ticket I had to wait in one of the long lines with people checking their bags. AirAsia could have saved me some time and confusion and saved themselves some money (in the form of labor) if they had allowed me to verify my identity and print my boarding pass myself."
