Pros: "Smooth flight on time including lunch service. Good entertainment system. Friendly attentive crew."

Cons: "Food, narrow seat, entertainment selection"
Pros: "Garuda have one of the best service and the crew always smiling and helpful. The new seating is very nice and conformable. The food is very nice."
Cons: "The one thing I don't like about Garuda is so many announcements. They want to announce every things that happens. There is a reason why the seatbelt signs are there. You don't have to say what we will have in the menu as we have it. The entertainment system is has average collection and they are not organized. That includes the movies. The music section is terrible, I was not able to recognize any of the artist. It is sad that they don't take their entertainment system seriously. With their service and new fleet, you will expect to have a great entertainment system but sadly it is not."
Pros: "Planes are confortables"
Cons: "Always late ? 3 flights this week with Garuda all 3 be delays. How they get away with this.."

Cons: "Boarding staff don’t have a clue. They are there for the airline not to help the traveler. Problem is they are the only carrier in the area. That being said.... they are better than Lion Air but that is not saying much. No real choice...."
Pros: "Other Airlines that sent extra planes to evacuate their patrons!"
Cons: "Garuda canceling my flight from Bali to Singapore and not rescheduling it for 3 days despite the Airport reopening the next day after a short closure for Volcanic Actvity"
Pros: "Beautiful NEW Terminal at Jakarta!, but Plenty of food outlets. Waiting areas are very large and accommodating. Security area is large and extremely efficient in processing passengers. Security personnel were friendly."
Cons: "Due to the enormous inside volume it is impossible to maintain a pleasant air temperature. It's nearly impossible to hear any announcements due to the extremely poor acoustics. The large open spaces and ceramic tile floors aren't conducive to hearing anything! No announcement to the departure time as we were already 20 minutes past the established boarding time as indicated on the boarding pass. I was sitting quite close to the check-in counter and was able to decipher that the boarding process was going to happen soon, so I took a position in the line without any announcement."
Cons: "Waited for over an hour for the last bags to be loaded to the baggage carousel at LAX, only to find out that a CZ employee standing two feet away from me had a sheet of paper with the owner names of four pieces of luggage known to be "stuck" in China. Bah humbug!"
Pros: "The quality of the food was truly outstanding. A personal chef on board - very happy to vary the food to get it just right, Also to suggest an alternative. I asked for something with a little spice. The flight attendent suggest one dish but then discussing it with the chef he suggested alterning another. Presentation expectional."
Cons: "The cabin is good but the style is a little old fashioned compared to other airlines - although the cabin wasn’t tattty. In the same way that Emirates is really old fashioned to westerners eyes."

Cons: "Unbearably hot plane before we pulled away. Someone dropped the ball on climate control."
Pros: "The flight from strong was delayed by 2.5 hours due to a technical problem. In spite of this delay Garuda made sure I made my connection in Makassar and my luggage also made the connection."
Cons: "Being a Westerner, a lighter choice for food might have been nice. Perhaps just fruit and vegetables would have been good. Also since i had three flights being served a heavy meal on each flight was more than I needed."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew and professional. Garuda is a great way to get around Indonesia!"
Pros: "Service on board as usual friendly and professional"

Pros: "Cabin Crew is friendly and professional"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the in flight meal, much better than other airline food I have had!"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was ok, could do with a few more new films and more episodes of TV shows!"
Pros: "Modern plane, good price, friendly staff"
Cons: "Plane landed very hard and felt like pilot was struggling for control (or still learning). Luggage took long time to come out and after abot 10 min of luggage just stopped and we found out that rest of our luggage was coming out of another carousel. Nobody told us, we had to find out ourselves when we couldn't find our luggage. Communication is important"
Cons: "I wish I was told my ticket did not include a meal upfront."
Cons: "Seat pitch is low for anyone who is tall. Even though you pay extra money for rows 6-12 you end up boarding last."
Cons: "Flight attendant presentation (uniforms were not very high quality)"
Cons: "We were delay for 2 hours, no communication, no apology or compensation."
Pros: "stewards helped us with all our baby bags"

Cons: "Delay one hour"
Pros: "The aircraft arrived late but the crew did an excellent job to turn the aircraft around fast and we ended up being early into Denpasar. Well done!"
Cons: "Not much to be honest? I value on time departures and this crew did everything they could to get back onto schedule."
Pros: "Well so far i uded airasia 3 times and always on time"
Pros: "AirAsia is a crooked airline. We had to pay Singapore$120 to check in two pieces of cabin luggage at the airport because we HONESTLY declared they were over 7kg each. On board the aircraft most passengers had cabin luggage which most definitely exceeded 7kg. NEVER again AirAsia."
Cons: "Stop overcharging for every f...g thing if not booked ahead. Add it all up a regular airline is cheaper. Dont abuse your network and schedule. You will never get be back to fly you."
Pros: "The airline was okay and pretty much on time. I think they are one of the safest to travel on in Indonesia after Garuda Indonesia."
Cons: "Super old aircraft, it was very dirty including the seats and tray table. I didnt feel like touching it. There was no entertainment whatsoever."
Pros: "Again Delayed"
Cons: "Missed appointment delayed as usual"
Cons: "I didn’t think there was an airline worse than the budget U.S. domestic carriers until I found AirAsia. Not worth even the low cost. I had a horrible check-in experience at both airports I flew from with them, charged for every little thing, no in-flight entertainment, and the flight crew was yelling at the passengers. Never again!"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and crew professional. I thought we would be late leaving, but ground crew turned plane around quickly in Bandung."
Cons: "Book your extras before the flight. 20kg bag for $15 and package lunch for about $6. It cost about $50 to add a bag at the airport."
Cons: "I got stuck in traffic and missed my flight from lAX to Singapore, so I called Kiwi right away, and they wouldn’t rebook me. If there is anyway you can help I would appreciate it so much!!!"
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: "We survived the flight with only a little backpain and one stiff butt cheek"
Cons: "No legroom, very narrow seating, no meal, expensive"
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: "It is like riding a bus except bus would allow you bags free of cost. No entertainment. Food and water only if you pay. Had to pay for bags also and it is not a small amount. Sucha ripoff."
Cons: "it was late, quality of experience was poor- from predeparture to landing"
Pros: "Very friendly."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding. On-time flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for premium seat, but still legroom is painfully lacking.The unlocked cockpit, and the casual movement of cabin crew in and out of the cockpit, made me nervous in this error of terrorism."
Pros: "AirAsia is probably my favorite discount airline, but that means by definition an acceptable but no frills experience. Got that at a relatively attractive price"
Cons: "The on-board sales cart did not have finger puppets, which I wanted to buy for some children."
Pros: "absolutely nothing about the flight was"
Cons: "I paid for exit row seating and didnt get it"
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"
Cons: "They charged me $186.43 USD"
Pros: "fast and cheap"
Pros: "The plane seemed to be in good condition and crew were friendly"
Cons: "I agreed to purchase three roundtrip tickets for myself, wife, & infant son. After checking in, I noticed the return boarding pass for my son was missing. I contacted Air Asia via instant message and was told that it wasn't a problem and I could get a boarding pass at the counter. Upon visiting the Air Asia counter at the outbound airport, I was told to see the counter again at the in-bound airport. The in-bound airport advised that the ticket was never purchased for the return. In fact it was as the tickets were not purchased individually. The tickets were purchased in a group as three round trip tickets and that's what I agreed to. At this point, I had no option but to purchase another ticket. Feeling cheated and powerless to resolve the issue I was very angry with Air Asia and would not fly with them again due to this fraud."
Cons: "Seats too 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: "Crews attitude were nice."
Cons: "The interior was look old and worn. It's a tired plane, with no proper clean up or maintenance in between flights."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Late departure, charged for baggage, cramped seating."
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: "AirAsia is a joke. first off there never on time. My plane left 2.5 hours late. on top of that they give you NO free anything. They charge for coke, water any drinks & snacks. Oh and your baggage has to be really light. I was charged $275 to check 2 bags. Absolutely absurd. Oh and to top that off, I've never been on a plane with smaller seats. AVOID THIS AIRLINE!!!"
Pros: "Arrived ar destination safely"
Cons: "Delayed for 3+ hours. Poor passenger management."
Cons: "Flight got delayed because of the rain. Our luggage was left outside during the rain and all of our clothes were wet when we unpacked. Very upsetting!"
Pros: "The free meal prior to boarding."
Cons: "The fact that our flight was extremely delayed and the gate was very chaotic!"
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: "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"
Pros: "We arrived at checkin to discover we had to pay for luggage and the price just before take off is crazy like $90 per bag Kayak Didn't disclose when buying tickets that there was a option to buy luggage allowance ahead - this is really bad!"
Cons: "Kayak's lack of transparency on hidden luggage charges and not making us buy it ahead of time cost is"
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: "Ticket price and excellent service at the airport nd onboard"
Pros: "Flight was short, they passed out beverages. They shuffle you from the gate area in a bus out to plane were the passengers that came in on it are deplaning while the next "herd" of passengers arrive to board. To be expected with these cheap flights. Overall flight was good, nothing extraordinary, one needs to be alert of time of flight and listen for announcements. They tend to change gates and/or start board with little notice."
Cons: "AirAsia's website not reliable for web check in and unclear about baggage costs. We were taking a bag weighing 30kg and paid the extra money for it when we didn't need to since we had a total of 4 bags each to weigh 15kg, of which we only used 2, total weight 30kg. They would have allowed the 30kg bag to go for free. Wished they would have made that clear that the weight per person can be used at total/combine weight. Of cours AirAsia didn't reimburse the money for the excess weight that wasn't used. These flights are economical but can hide several extra charges that add up. Beware, and do due diligence before buying."
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"
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."
