The biggest complain is both duiring the CGK T3 international outbound and inbound flight makes you walk the whole length of t3 from the departure gate as the plane for this international flight was parked at the most corner part of domestic terminal. No travellator, no buggy. Terrible for the elders.and bi assistance can be seen"
Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment"
Pros: "The female air crews. Indonesian female air stewardess are simply beautiful and shapely!"

Cons: "Delay of 30 minutes without any explanation. Contrary to other times, the food was tasteless."
Cons: "i didnt like the fact that the flight was cancelled and i was not notified the staff there were no help at all , overall pathetic by then having to take a later flight i then missed my connecting flight to Melbourne which in turn caused me to delay my return by a day then causing me to miss my transport back to my home which is three hours from the airport , i was told in Jakarta that someone would meet me in Melbourne on my arrival to make arrangment for my travel home but no one was there so i had to make my own way home costing me extra money . Overall my exsperience with your airline was a disaster for a so called international airline and i would never recomend to my friends to fly with you ."
Cons: "Garuda played loud “music” on arrival so we couldn’t watch the entertainment system. Getting onto the flight was horrid with long long long wait on the bus to go from terminal to airplane. Food was ultra salty and dreadful."

Pros: "Excellent and plentiful food."
Cons: "Limited storage in business class seat"
Cons: "I purchased 3 legs of a trip on-line and tried daily for 50+ days to make a seat reservation. Occasionally, a screen would appear that stated a fee would be charged. I had no problem with that and was prepared with my credit card to make payment only to be told "oops there was an error" and the transaction could not be completed. I called the Garuda contact number in the U.S. twice and was told there was nothing that could be done from the US and I would have to take care of it when I arrived in Bangkok. I probably will never fly Garuda again so it really will not be a problem."

Pros: "Pretty smooth flight!"

Cons: "Having to change my ticket was a nightmare. I had to call Garuda in the U.S. and after 45 minutes, was told I had to call Indonesia who took another 45 minutes to process the change. All of this cost time and money, not only for the ticket change but for the calls."
Pros: "Organised, well turned out, polite and efficient, a refreshing change to British Airways"
Pros: "I met with a best friend whom I didn't meet for a decades, and he was I the same GA flight but not a member of GFF. Lounge Team give me a courtesy access so we can have a quite discussion in GA Lounge"
Cons: "This was my mother in law traveling. Upon arrival in Jakarta, no Garuda staff assisted her in changing terminals for connecting flight. Security would not let her in to China Airlines entrance, because her boarding pass was from Garuda. They were telling her to go back to Garuda terminal. My wife had to contact someone at China Airlines to go find her, get her through security, and escort her to the plane which had already boarded!!"

Cons: "The food is bad"
Pros: "On time boarding"
Pros: "Cabin was in good size, crew was friendly and professional, in flight entertainment was top notch."
Cons: "Boarding was late. When we got to Soekarno Hatta, it took a while before they could open the door of the plane and let everyone out because they were waiting for some equipment (the stairs i'm guessing). Then they put us in a bus which took a loooong time to get to the right terminal. I was sick at that time so this was very inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Plane was a bit old and Didn't have USB port to charge my phone. I always like it when I can charge my devices on board so I know I have full battery once I get off."

Pros: "Clean and crew"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. Not worth it."
Cons: "It would have been great to have a confirmation that you received our request before the day of departure. We thought the booking did not get through so we booked another company. We ended up losing the money for that ticket. We could not reach kayak and AirAsia, in their policy doesn’t cancel anything. I don’t know who was supposed to send us the confirmation but the money is gone"
Pros: "It arrived on time"
Cons: "Very snel legroom, no included food, no free water, no inflight entertainment"
Cons: "You booked us a flight with only an hour layover in Singapore. I feel you should have known that changing airlines in Singapore requires a 3 hour layover as you must claim your baggage at the baggage claim, go through customs, change terminals, re-check your bag and then go through security again. All this being said we missed our flight and had to purchase new tickets! What are you going to do to make this up to us as it’s our honeymoon?"
Pros: "Meals are delicious although not all items were available without prebooking."
Cons: "It was very cold during the flight. No blankets available - only for sale."
Cons: "Checked in 2.5 hrs early and my reward was they left my bag in Denpasar while I went on to Kuala Lumpur!"
Cons: "Long delay..!!"
Pros: "Delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "Check-in and boarding very easy"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Crews are quite friendly"
Cons: "Certain Crew is unable to do simple math calculation even though she is using calculator. I was purchasing food and gave Malaysian Ringgit, little that I know, the change is given in Rupiah and the amount was wrong, it was short of 55,000. Luckily I did a little math calculation my own, and find that she was over-charging too much for the food. Realizing that particular crew can't calculate, I offer to pay using Rupiah, she rejected it and gave me back the proper change. The exchange rate on board is absurd!!! I suggest use local currency if anyone would do onboard purchasing on AirAsia."
Cons: "Never flew due to volcano - fair enough. But communication from the airline was utterly non-existent, as was any kind of service and support for rescheduling etc. Confusing messages on their website and refusal to fly despite other airlines having no issue - because they didn't want to pay parking rates at AU airports. Air Asia ruined my holiday far more than Mt Agung."
Cons: "Delay flights. wait too long"
Pros: "Friendly staffs - both on the Fllight as well as the Ground Staffs."
Cons: "I cannot think of any"
Cons: "it was late, quality of experience was poor- from predeparture to landing"
Pros: "Very friendly."
Pros: "The price is competitive"
Cons: "The aircraft had been in the ground but boarding 45 minutes late, I saw steward, stewardess and copilot chat in front of toilet :|"
Cons: "Flight was badly delayed and retimed 3 times. Ended up we wasted a whole day. No reason was given."
Cons: "Flight was delay"
Pros: "Landing 20mins early."
Cons: "Going by bus to & from the plane. Waiting for luggage"
Cons: "Delay of one hour Delay announced was 20 minutes and no further announcements were made about additional delays Maybe some refreshments could have been served to compensate for delay at least"
Pros: "Cheap flight, landing at T2"
Cons: "Walking on the Tarmac or busing to the plane, flight delayed 25m without an update till past actual departure time, seatbelt light on for almost entire flight-when are passengers given a chance to use the bathroom? The value meal (sandwiches) was very basic and exactly the same for both departing & return flights. My 4yo could pull out the table from its tracks-He's not exactly he-man."
Pros: "fast and cheap"
Cons: "Seats too cramped"
Pros: "The value, I got low price ticket. Polite , helpful crew. On schedule. Using apps for check in, no paper harassment. Didn't try food, and no use for entertainment for short flight. Don't have baggage."
Cons: "Space was so cramped, aisle and between seats. Would be very uncomfortable for people with long legs, long flight. Even cabin crew could hardly help with baggage on boarding in and out because of the space. Should be more firm on one cabin bag+one handbag policy, many inconsiderate passanger carry more so it was even more cramped."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. I paid for a low cost carrier flight that fit my schedule. I paid for extra baggage and an exit row seat. I was fine with all of what I got. A flight attendant sang a few songs on his guitar to entertain us."
Cons: "Maybe the luggage took too long to come out. Everything else, I get that I paid for a lower fare seat and airline. No complaints."
Pros: "On schedule, even a bit earlier on arrival. Good, polite crew."
Cons: "So small space, can hardly move. But it was a budget flight, so was expected. Would be harder on person with longer leg."
Pros: "Got to my destination 30 mins early!"
Cons: "No charging dicks or entertainment"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "Actually getting to Bali"
Cons: "30mins before scheduled boarding notification of flight delayed was displayed with no explanation. I had to google about the volcano once again causing delays & cancellations, although AirAsia takes a different route so this shouldn't have been a problem. Departure time comes & goes. finally we take off 35mins after schedule, the captain making some excuse of rescheduling, no mention of volcano. Rough flight, very bumpy take off and landing, probably the worst I've experienced including small military planes! I paid for a drink but never received my change with the crew member never looking at me once afterwards so I could never get his attention. Then there was the airport.....!"
Cons: "Baggage collection at DPS was way too long."
Cons: "From prior reviews I knew enough to allow nearly four hours to make the change from domestic (Bali to Jakarta) to international (Jakarta to Tokyo) upon arrival in the Jakarta airport. Good thing! Our early evening Bali flight was delayed by almost an hour; more importantly, the bus-to-arrival, baggage claim, bus-to-international terminal-with-luggage took nearly ninety minutes to figure out and execute (not AirAsia's fault, obviously, but still a planning issue). Adding the long walk from check-in to gate and the immigration process meant in the end we made our connection with less than thirty minutes to spare. Otherwise the flight was fine. No complaints about the ticket price either."
Cons: "We staied alot in the airport waiting the delayed flight without parior commuincation The plan was so noisy We were not notified before that our luggages were not included in the ticket price so we spent time trying to pay online but the website was so bad and then we paied cash The plan was so cold which made me feel sick and no plankets to use The take off and the landing were terriple Even no pottle of water served all have to be paid by the passengers !!"
Pros: "Nothing !!!!!! $$$$???"
Cons: "Didn't do a good servers, even a small bottle of water passengers have to pay. What the world !!! $$$ ???"
Pros: "Crew on board are very polite"
Cons: "They sell the tickets so cheap but lots of hidden charges I checked online on their website the baggage allwanc and it was from Bali to Jakarta 15kg and any extra weight up to 30 kg you pay 20 usd more by the time I arrived there they wanted to charge me 120 usd for my bags .agents at the counter were rude and they sent me to Air Asia office in the Airport where the agents there were even more rude and the lady was just screaming at me and pointing in my face with her finger and she never even offered any solution and she mentioned that the charge is mentioned online .I asked her to show me as I had a screen shot for the Web page but instead she was still shouting and pointing at me . Finally one agent at the counter informed me that I'm allowed to have two handbags so I can remove some staff from my suite case and carry them as handbag which was never mentioned before from any other agent .and this 120 usd were never mentioned on the website as I'm an airline staff as well and I know how to read terms and conditions. Above all I tried to write feedback online guess what !? They don't have this option. First and last time I fly with this cheap airline I'm not willing to pay money to get insulted"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport right at check in time. When we went up to check in and hand over our luggage only to find out that one piece wasn't included in ticket price, something that hasn't been made clear. My friend (who was on crutches) and I then had to go back and wait in a different line to pay $45 each per backpack. None of this was explained to us and the girl at the front was too busy on her phone looking at Facebook to be helping people. when we finally got through the plane was small, no leg room and I'm only 5'2. Limited meal options which we were charged an extra 30% through a poor exchange rate for, still fairly convinced the staff pocketed that money as it didn't say anywhere that they were going to charge that amount extra. No complimentary drink, not even water. Won't fly air Asia again. Cheap and you get what you pay for, but after that baggage charge there were definitely cheaper, better options out there."
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "When purchasing the flight I was in a hurry and failed to purchase two checked bags. Upon arrival air Asia charged us $45 US dollars per bag for failing to purchase online and surpassing the 4 hour time limit. We feel that this is a terrible policy. They would not wave the extraordinary baggage fees. Terrible policy!"
Pros: "Good trip and good staff"
Cons: "Everything all right"
Cons: "I dont know. Perhaps more on time schedule rather than delayed for 2 hours with no prior notice"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "Check-in Procedure Baggage Policies Security Airport Facilities Seat Comfort Flight Amenities Airline Staff"
Pros: "on time and landed faster than schedule"
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not friendly. This is rare for Indonesia."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 30 minutes but there was no heads up from the crew at the airport. After continued waiting after the boarding time, I approached the crew myself to ask and the crew didn't even know the flight was getting delayed (still no announcement to the other passengers). Pure nonsense"
Pros: "Prompt, modern plane"
Cons: "Bag of peanuts"
Cons: "2 hour delay with no explanation. Checked bag arrived very wet."
Cons: "The checked in bagage did not arrive with our flight from Labuan Bajo. Every time they said it was arriving, but it did not. Staff did not know where bagage was. Afterwards I constructed that the bagage was simply not loaded on the place, because there was no space. So it was left intentionally and not lost. No one told us. They never admitted this to us, let alone compensation for wasting our time on the airport waiting."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not only was there a delay but there was so little information about the delay. No help with getting new tickets for our next flights. We were given the run around trying to sort things out ourself. The "refreshments" were absolutely horrible considering that we were delayed 8 hours over the course of two flights. When we got on the plane the seat pockets were so disgusting that I couldn't put anything inside them. The inflight drink and snacks were pitiful. Won't be flying Lion Air ever again."
Pros: "fast check in"
Cons: "delay no F&B provided during flight no in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing to like. Basically the stewardesses in the plane where helpful, but I guess they where running over their allowed flight hours."
Cons: "4 hours delay, each and every time the delay was 1 hour more, and 1 hour more. Not even a close to correct estimation. No compensation from the airline for drinks or food. Once finally boarded flight-documents process took more than 20 minutes, and taxiing for take off took 25 minutes more."
Pros: "Lion air include the bagage in the flight price."
Cons: "even web check in already, we still have to Q-up."
Pros: "Promo price"
Pros: "Promo price"
Cons: "Not only the flight is delayed, the announcement to notify the passengers about the delay was late as well."
