Pros: "Check in and immigration was quick. Flight was on time"
Cons: "Even though there plenty of seats available, the auto seat allocation put another passenger next to me."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hour and 50 minutes. Even my inbound flight also delayed one hour."
Cons: "Flight delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Flight was on time, friendly attendants."
Cons: "Check-in took forever, another line should have been opened. Very little legroom on the plane."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "Announcement at the airport is unclear"
Pros: "Very always at check in but all very relaxed. Only gave 3 for food as we'd asked for pot noodle (Rm3) only to be told they had no hot water. Not serious & we didn't use their entertainment. Otherwise all good & would recommend"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and disembarkation T2 arrival in SIN Online check in"
Cons: "Needed to re check in in SIN, even on a same day flight Flight was late for both sectors SZB-SIN-SZB"
Pros: "The staff has no personality and no working knowledge of how customer service is supposed to be. I booked this as Malaysia Airlines and even though it's operated by Firefly, it should've recognized my priority status with OneWorld."
Pros: "There was one local manager who smiled a lot and tried to promise things that it turned out he wasn't allowed to promise while his airline was screwing me."
Cons: "International travelers, check and recheck your flight. Firefly canceled my flight "several weeks ago", according to them, didn't notify me by phone or email despite the fact that they admitted they had both on file, didn't refund the money to my credit card until the day before departure so i had no idea of the change, and then provided no help whatsoever when i arrived at the airport and the flight didn't exist anymore."
Cons: "Hot in the plane upon boarding"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and easy. Check-in line was short, the whole airport experience was quick and easy. Flight was smooth, comfortable, staff was so friendly. When I checked in for my flight in Penang, the girl who helped me, Kay, was the most friendly help I've ever had.. She offered me a great seat and was patient and friendly when I requested to be moved around. She made conversation while we waited for the system to finish, and had a huge smile the whole time. She set the time for the whole airport and flight experience, and had me smiling the rest of the day. If there's a way to tell her bosses - she is a gem, hang on to her! I'm looking forward to my next trip on firefly!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a bit, but flight took off within a few minutes of schedule, so no real problem!"
Pros: "the flight attendant on board was lively in making announcements!"
Cons: "Flight was first brought forward by 30 mins. Arrived on time at the gate, but actually it's delayed by 15 mins from the original time. So in total delayed about 50 mins from brought forward time. NO ground staff at the gate bothers to inform us. Flight status screen shows "Callng", when approached, ground staff just replied "not yet" in a bad manner. Terrible ground service."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Comfort and food."
Cons: "Some flight attendants could ve friendlier."
Cons: "The entertainment unit was constantly malfunctioning"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours"
Pros: "ok"
Pros: "First time on Malaysian. At least we didn’t disappear. All was okay except for the meal on the flight to Saigon. I’m not one to complain about airline food but the “meal” served was execrable, possibly the worst in 65 years of flying. And no alcohol on an international flight was niggardly in my estimation.. The flight from Penang to KL they had the cheek to serve a tiny cup of fake orange juice. I will avoid Malaysian in the future."
Cons: "Please see what above."
Cons: "very delayed flight in addition slow flying what should have taken 52 minutes ended 1 hour 20 min to add to that poor cabin crew management of Business Class disembarking excruciating slowly added another delay of 20 minutes!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy even though it started late, it was organized. Once I got on the plane I wasn't waiting a long time to get to my seat because they seated the people sitting in the back of the plane first. There is a huge selection of movies, tv shows, and music."
Cons: "They have 2 food options and they're just ok. There wasn't very many drink options either."
Cons: "Flight through kul was delayed. 3 security checks having to go out to another terminal meant immigration check twice. Not enough time for connection. Therfore, i not only missed the fight to India, the two remaining connections... Not good day, now I have to pay rebooking on 3 flights to get home!!!"
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't ask me if I need ice cream or any drink but they asked another seat of passages. It's not fair..."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Sadly one passenger in front of me talked loudly, for 7 hours straight, took an hour to sleep then talked again for the remaining 5 hours. Not airline fault"
Cons: "Feel airline maintenance is slipping second flight in a week where they have tv trouble"
Cons: "Worst business class seat in the air. Departed 90 minutes late due to mechanical issues"
Pros: "the crew was flexible enough to allow change of seat to emergency exit after takeoff. Some of the crew are friendly, but not all."
Cons: "the seats. I am 5'9 tall and my knees are touching the seat in front of me. Entertainment system needs to be upgraded. Food is so-so. Overall, MH flights, not just this recent one was just what was expected as the bare minimum."
Cons: "Cancel last minute and no compensation given, how rude it is."
Cons: "cabin not so clean, no foot rest. But crew good service."
Pros: "I was surprised to board an A380 to fly from KUL to BKK"
Cons: "In Bangkok we had to get off on the field to board a bus"
Cons: "Delayed again. 5 flights of people crammed in gate area 81 - 84. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Crews were only thinking of completing their tasks. I had been standing for 10 minutes in order to have the crews gave way. They were cleaning post lunch. I was told to wait till they were done."
Pros: "Web checkin and Baggage Drop were precise which saved time. Few passengers do not matter these two (2) important features but this is efficiency to a minimum!"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Economy class seats are getting tighter and smaller. When person in front reclines the seat you do not have much moving space left"
Pros: "Staff onboard were good"
Cons: "Many hours delay at Miri, MAS staff abandoned posts so they didn't have to deal with passengers. Apalling service"
Pros: "The food and check in is better flying from HK to KL.."
Cons: "It seems the crew, in most flights, is always grumpy.. rarely I get service with a smile.."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "Food. Arrival arrangements (although this may be out of the airlines control - slow immigration, disorganised luggage collection."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "food was horrible"
Cons: "We had a 4.5 hour delay due to weather conditions at Heathrow. Although the airline could not avoid this. I feel being kept on the plane for the duration before a 12 hour flight and a further 4 hour connection, was too much."
Pros: "Peanuts"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Nothing i can think of"
Pros: "The early arrival, and the service"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Food and hospitality"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5hours"
Cons: "I request for extra water but I was just given the glass which was on my tray. The Stewart told me he would come back but never did... not very nice One Air Asia, sûre you have to pay for the drink but you don't stay thirsty, and finally ticket is much cheaper..."
Cons: "Food is always the same - soggy noodles and chicken or bland spaghetti and wilted veg with soggy fish. Seats cramped. Wasn't informed of gate change until 30 minutes later. Crew efficient but a little lacking in hospitality department."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Check in- only 2 desks open."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"
Pros: "Flight to Penang was delayed for more than 3 hours for unclear reasons. These was not a clear announcement as to what was going on. Then after that, they were waiting on the crew from Langkawi. We arrived at 2 a.m. or so as a resluy"
Cons: "Lateness and lack of transparency from MAS staff"
Pros: "Malaysia airlines has some of the most beautiful women working for them. Most curteous, kind, and very personable. Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful"
Cons: "The long layovers with no hotel voucher from Malaysia air. That would be a big help especially for me since I travel alone. And not to familiar with hotel locations, taxis. I am concerned about my safety in another country..."
Pros: "Good entertainment system."
Cons: "Food was only one choice - fish (not tasty)."
Pros: "Clean plane. Nice staff"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "No food, No entertainment"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Sorry to say the flight is always late. From Osaka to KL I had to wait 4 hours to connect to the next flight to Jakarta. Than on the way back from Jakarta to KL the flight was late again I just nearly made it for my connnecting flight to Osaka. Overall it was ok but something must be done for delayed flights."
Cons: "Got stuck by lots of crying kids."
Pros: "The plane was decent. The offering on the IFE was a good mix. Food was ok"
Cons: "The IFE froze. I alerted the crew but it took them nearly 1.5 hours to do a reset of the system. I barely managed to watch a movie and only managed that due to the fact that I had my own earphones. They collect their headsets way too early."
Pros: "The crew is friendly"
Cons: "Check in counter not enough resulting in very very long queue and check in time"
Pros: "Short trip 50 mins"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No newspapers"
Cons: "Had a transit flight through KL from Colombo to Bali. The luggage was not with me and my friend along with about 7-10 others post arrival in Bali. We received the luggage after losing almost one day eating into our holiday. Minor compensation was given but the inconvenience was far more! This is not the KL to colombo flight but thought i will write it in here as I got this through Kayak"
Cons: "Lost baggage on direct flight"
Pros: "I love flying with MAS"
Cons: "I don't like Tax Refund Customs Verification"
Cons: "Only 3 hours to checkin prior boarding for business class. I waited for 2 hours foor checkin"
Pros: "No and No! Seat was cramped. Crew was ok"
Cons: "If they weren’t always on the PA. I was trying to read and someone was always talking"
Cons: "Need to cleanup the cabin."
Cons: "Not too much delay as usual"
Pros: "Checking in goes well"
Cons: "after booking, air asia changed the flight schedule back teo hours. Then on travel day the flight was delayed another hour. So we arrived around midnight. Air Asia Is somewhat annoying as they’re always trying to sell you something during the flight"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "If seats could recline or have a pillow maybe."
Pros: "Crew was quick to serve any on-board item I ordered. Happily served with a smile"
Cons: "I’ve been traveling with AirAsia since quite a few years, but recently AirAsia flights are being delayed quite often. This is not how budget airlines usually work. They’re known for their on-time operations. I hope AirAsia works to improve on this issue."
Cons: "The AC created so much smoke that I couldn’t see the stewardess during the safety instructions"
Cons: "Would be nice to have entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was really nice"
Cons: "There wer plenty of empty seats and the other people sitting in my row wanted to move to open seats but weren’t allowed because the seats apparently cost more money than our seats. I think that’s a bit stingy of the airlines because no one is sitting there. Why not allow people to be comfortable?"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Great experience"
Pros: "Very understanding and helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Such a poor on time record"
Pros: "Delayed 2 time"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothing. We arrived safe"
Cons: "First of all it left late with no explanation. One hour late. Crew did almost nothing. No food at all unless preordered. Not even awater. Lights out for no reason. It was as t even 7:30 when they dimmed the long guts. Only one bathroom in the back and we never saw someone go forward so we were t sure if there was one in the front. Very tight seats."
Pros: "Cabin crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped up."
Pros: "I will say that the AirAsia crews do save the day. This is my first time flying AirAsia on a 3 leg trip (currently on leg 2) and the crew members have been absolutely awesome and stellar."
Cons: "I’m just a BIG guy so space is my overall complaint. But as my first experience with AirAsia, it has not been a great one. First my initial flight kept being delayed and delayed until it was actually canceled. Then my second leg of my vacation trip, again, delayed and they just had us standing in line waiting to board our flight. Again I give praise to the wonderful crew members for the stellar and comforting service. They truly are the reason I have not given up on AirAsia just yet. Now I do have one leg left, my tip home...I’m hoping that this one will be the overall best experience for my AirAsia. I’m praying for an on time departure, and another wonderful staff and just a tiny bit more leg space. Wish me luck"
Pros: "very on time"
Cons: "chair abit small"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "No room for legs Flight was delayed without any information at the gate My wife was at a differtn row even if there was a free seat next to me. I had to pay to next to her during check-in."
Pros: "The customer service representatives were very cordial"
Cons: "My bag was sent to Kuala Lumpur for no reason. I checked in with plenty of time and when I arrived in Singapore I was advised that not only could they not call to Panang to inquire about my bag -it had to be arranged through email but also bags aren’t destination scanned! I work for United airlines and it seems primitive not to know where a bag is in today’s day and age. The following day, knowing that I was departing back to the United States miraculously my bag showed up at the airport the same time as my minimum required check in time."
Pros: "Pleasant counter service at the terminal."
Cons: "Half hour late"
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Flight delayed, landed at 2.00am+"
Cons: "Always delay!!!!"
Pros: "Delayed in departures for 30 mins but arrived only by 5 mins late"
Cons: "In the Ramadan month, on board the plan just when time for breaking fast, a small glass of plain water to be given free for passengers on the flight at that time would be a thoughtful gesture"
Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "Flight attendant quite slow for delivering food and not many selection food available as usual"
Pros: "On time and very friendly helpful staff. Especially ground crew"
Pros: "Captain address on delayed update and get free meal"
Cons: "Initialy no staff at gate to update the delay. Passenger left wondering. Luckly received alert from Kayak.com on the delay. Received sms at 9.05pm after 1 hour delay from Airasia."
Pros: "On time (early on the return leg). Interesting usage of onboard wifi to deliver inflight entertainment. The choices of the channels was mediocre. Nevertheless, a good start."
Cons: "Same food (on return leg) with no other choices choice with the value pack add-on. Pasta was overcooked."
Pros: "convenient times"
Cons: "your machines i hate that you now employ less humans and more machines. no one wants to fly anywhere without humans in control"
Pros: "Short inexpensive fligh"
Cons: "Seat rows were very close & limited room."
Pros: "BOARDING very smooth n fast...more importantly punctuation very good"
Cons: "Value meal lousy (pocket pie)..both flight offer Same pocket pie,Rokki can't use at all..i notice cabin crew didn't check whether passengers apply seating belt at all."
Cons: "No water is provided on board"
Pros: "Cabin crew were professional and courteous. I like the boarding at rear of airplane first"
Cons: "For me, the seats a were uncomfortable. No lower back support."
Pros: "I was traveling without access to WiFi and was unable to add my checked bags until the morning them the web site wouldn't let me add the bags. I got to the airport and the airline charged me $300 in fees for my two bags. Highway robbery. I'll never fly Air Asia again."
Cons: "Usurious fees for checked bags and the flights are always late to boot."
Pros: "Being updated of the status of flight periodically"
Cons: "Airport was crowded. As many other flights were delayed too."
Pros: "Check in staff was trying to ensure me that hoping the cabin crew can help me changed seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. What's worst my 5 years old daughter have to be seperated from me. And instead of them asking the passengers to swap they'd expect me to solve their stuffed up. Not very impressed at all"
Cons: "More than 3h late, no information, gate close (we had to wait in the corridor), nothing to drink during the flight. And I had to pay 80RM just to travel with my umbrella,"
Pros: "very affordable fare"
Cons: "No beverage even water. Bring your own water"
Cons: "No attention to our needs. I booked a wheelchair for my mom from manila to bkk. No wheelchair was provided from malaysia to bkk. I even push my mom in manila airport coz they said they dont have enough staff. My mom had a stroke and she walked all the way in kuala lumpur. What a lousy airline you have"
Pros: "quick check-in and no-nonsense."
Cons: "They were fine."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Good because of direct flight"
Pros: "I like the organized way they did the boarding. Less chaotic and allow passengers ample time to board the plane"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight delayed by around over 7 hours. Only discovered this when went to check in. This has meant we are currently stuck in KL airport awaiting a morning flight having already paid for a nights accommodation in Penang. Airline has refused to take any responsibility for the situation."
Cons: "No family priority boarding."
Cons: "I was charged over $200 for luggage overweight because I did not purchase it at time of booking. That's disgraceful. They should make it clear for people outside Asia who are not familiar with their policies what they should do to avoid these charges Jackie"
Pros: "Just for budget flights"
Cons: "Seats, boarding, delays"
Pros: "Pilots made a great effort to cut down the delay, kudos to them."
Cons: "No organization whatsoever in boarding procedures. No announcement made on the flight being delayed, only a message passed down from passengers at the very front. Plane was not cleaned and emptied of rubbish before we were boarded. Most shocking of all, the plane was being refueled while passengers were boarding. All in all, pretty appalling. I take budget flights 2-3 times a year and this is the worst experience I've had with budget carriers (including the European budget carriers with dirt cheap fares and sometimes non-existence customer service)."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "Check in staff was extremely rude, and extorted us for RM 20 for checking in 59 minutes before the flight instead of the supposedly required 60 minutes. Their policies are outrageous, arbitrary and not stated anywhere."
Cons: "Everything also must charge, the worst one is even you pay them money they still want to charge extra, seat is the smallest among all airline."
Cons: "Not great seats for comfort"
