Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick boarding procedure, good price"
Cons: "I am tall... 197cm... and my seat had so little leg room, I couldn't sit normally. All exit seats were free, the flight attendant told me they can't move me because you need to pay extra for those seats. I don't need to get anything for free, but I paid for my seat just like everybody else and it's very frustrating I was forced to spend my flight sitting not only uncomfortably, but also in an unsafe position in case any serious turbulence happened."
Pros: "Cool signage and ads. Quick on and off boarding process"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable, no in flight entertainment or plugs, charged for basic drinks, cash only, Seats too close to one another, seat belt not made for American bodies, took off late. Basically the spirit airlines for East Asia"

Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Nőt enough place"
Cons: "We were running late for the flight due to long lines at immigration which was not Air Asia’s fault, but when we finally made it to the check-in counters we were misdirected several times and given conflicting information. On top of that after we finally checked in we had to go another counter to pay the baggage fee and we’re misdirected there too. After wasting 25 minutes we made the flight, but only because it was 30 minutes late."
Pros: "Flight arrived early quick and easy boarding Good seat"
Cons: "Nothing. It was just as expected"
Pros: "Nice newer plane and mindful staff."

Cons: "Baggage cost"
Pros: "The flight itself was very reasonably priced."
Cons: "They charged us for a checked bag and it is on a sliding weight scale. If you check your bag be prepared to pay more if it is over 15kilograms. Also, there is no complimentary beverage service. Snacks and drinks are available for a fee. The seats are pretty small. If you have longer legs expect them to hit the tray table even when it's in its full upright position."
Cons: "Luggage fee for less than 20kg for one way is more than the ticket itself? How rediculous!"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Flight id designed for people who travel super light. Tourist who do not read reviews are taken by surprise at the last moment (at the registration desk) and have no choice but to buy the second ticket for their luggage. The web site does not fully disclose luggage policy. No leg room"

Cons: "No drink service."
Pros: "Quick on time boarding and departure. Crew was professional and helpful."

Cons: "Seats too close, no videos, no free food or drink."
Cons: "Luggage fee should be more clear when booking"
Pros: "We were able to just carry our packs on since we pack light and therefore did not have to pay the baggage fee. The in-flight time went by quickly."
Cons: "The boarding took almost 30 minutes longer than it had stated and everyone was just standing in line. The pilot seemed to hit every pocket of turbulence he could and the landing was terrible."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, efficient boarding and check in, kind staff, flight landed early"
Cons: "Website wouldn't let me purchase baggage in advance. Kept sending error messages. I tried the live chat but a message said too many people were already asking questions, come back later. So I had to pay full price for baggage which I was not happy with :("
Cons: "extra charge for luggages no water on flight"
Pros: "Easy transfer, read the bad reviews. We had no issue bringing in food by the crew. Seriously these are cheap flights. They are giving you choices and pay accordingly according to your choices."
Cons: "Terminal changed twice so it was a bit confusing"
Cons: "Flight departed 30 minutes late. No water or drinks included. I understand meals or snacks but not even water?"
Pros: "It was complete chais .. we were charges $100's of extra dollars for baggage.. seats were small .. no meal .. lines were long and we almost missed the flight as we had to stand in a long line and then told to stand in a different long line to pay for excess fees.. we flew with thai smile airways on the way back and it was so much better"
Cons: "Baggage fees Long lines"
Cons: "No food or beverages served, seats wouldn't recline, bag fee"
Pros: "Nothing about this airline was good, They over priced us because our bags were over weight almost $500 usd."
Cons: "Nothing about this airline was good, They over priced us because our bags were over weight almost $500 usd. We didn't purchase our bags from before hand so they took advantage and over charged us to check these bags in. I will never fly with this air line again. I would not suggest anyone to fly with them."
Pros: "The cheap fare for the flight"
Cons: "Being charged for water. Terrible crew attitude."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. No issues."
Cons: "I paid $144 USD to check 2 bags because Kayak give me the option of including checked bags (I thought it was already included) and didn't inform me of the need to pay for checked luggage ahead of time to avoid high fees."
Cons: "I did not use the flight because I accidentally purchased the flight going the wrong direction. Immediately upon pressing the purchase button I realized my mistake and attempted to fix it only to find out that even though I purchased through Kayak, Air Asia would be responsible for all customer service. Upon finally getting a hold of them after several hours of frustration I was told that not only was there no way to cancel it, I could not even use the price paid as a credit for the opposite route regardless of the fact that I was attempting to rectify this seconds after purchasing. I expected to be using Kayak as a point of customer service and was the only reason I went the route I did to purchase the ticket."
Cons: "Not even a small glass of water...really? That is not right."
Cons: "The attendant at the check in counter was extremely rude. Overall very cheap airline. AirAsia should look up to Thai Airways to improve their overall service."
Pros: "Myself and my 3 friend were seated together and were able to get priority seating without requesting it."
Cons: "It was an extra 900 baht for checked luggage. We were shuttled to where the plane was during boarding, but had to wait in the shuttle while the previous flight was unboarding. The cabin was not cleaned between flights and they came around collecting garbage as if it was our garbage that needed to be thrown out."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was the only satisfying part."
Cons: "Terrible experience, very much like the other international reviewers on this page. Baggage fees are costlier than the costs of seats. Could barely fit baggage under the seat. The outside crew was not friendly and did not understand English fully."
Pros: "I want a refund on this flight and I will be taking measure to complain at the highest level at the company on the way I was treated and the $900 baggage charge they tried to charge me, then agreed to $450. I was on a previous flight with the same airline and was charged $30 excess baggage weight, with the same bags, which if anything were lighter. I was completely exploited and I will never book this airline again. I'm so appalled and disgusted by this airline - And warn other travelers to fly with an alternative company. On top of it all they were rude and extremely unhelpful."
Pros: "reasonable price"
Cons: "baggage charges. confusion on how to pay and not included in ticket. Seemingly very expensive. check in had inadequate personnel to service the boarding passengers. long, long wait in line cup of coffee on 6:10 am flight was very expensive"
Pros: "On time arrival, good service and a flight crew always smiling and ready to help."
Cons: "You are ok as long as you read the rules before you buy the tickets. No surprises."
Cons: "Had to pay $36US for each checked bag for each segment of the trip. So for two of us with a stopover enroute to Chaing Mai, had to pay $144US. Will never fly Air Asia again. And I will be wary of using Kayak, as we were not sufficiently warned other than - Airlines may charge extra for baggage."
Pros: "This is a budget airline and they get you to where you going at good price"
Cons: "They pack you in all together even though there are open seats available and leave you there as if you've done something wrong"
Cons: "fraud on the baggge fee. Had already tried to pay on web sire, but tmdid not work. Then they charge more than twice the price at airport."
Cons: "No explaining delay before take off and after arrive"
Pros: "I am grateful for small mercies. ... it was on time!"
Cons: "Not being fleeced / ripped off cheated out of money as I check in. The website purposely does not allow payment of bags just so they can get more at airport. ... Staff admitted it was regular complaints and they did not care... Not my sort of pleasurable flight.."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "The ground staff service was really poor, the air-cond on-board was warm instead of cold, when arrived Singapore, the body sweaty."
Cons: "The pre-book luggage service and check-in ground staff service in Bangkok airport. It's really disappointed."
Pros: "Professional and very accommodating crew"
Cons: "They had mosquitos entire flight, they could have sprayed bug spray or do something about it"
Pros: "Just expect , what is expected from a low cost carrier."
Pros: "I had very low expectations after reading some reviews for this airline. But I was pleasantly surprised. Staff in Bangkok was nice, paid for bags, everything went smoothly, and the plane was not dumpy at all."
Cons: "nothing, it was a short simple flight."
Cons: "The plane was COLD and no blankets to be found."
Cons: "Thai Lion delays all the times and they never try to compensate it with a bit of refreshments or anything. They took the passengers for granted"
Cons: "Thai Lion will rip you off on checked in luggage if you pay during checking in for your flight. I paid almost $300USD for one suitcase that weighed 15 kilos. When asked, they said I should have paid in advance. I expected to pay for checked in luggage, but $300 bucks is Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "the landing"
Pros: "Decent price"
Cons: "There was a large group that seemed like a class trio with over 20 children who were loud and rude the entire flight. Parents and flight attendants did not tell them to calm down or act more polite."
Pros: "Price was great."
Cons: "Charges 300 Baht per kilogram after 7 kg. We ended up switching out all goods that had to be checked and just carried our backpacks on. Was a big hassle."
Pros: "The plane didn’t crash and we made it to our destination"
Cons: "We were squished in like sardines. My neck and back still hurt. They are sticklers about bags. No more than 7 kg (roughly 15lbs). Over all experience not so good."
Cons: "There baggage weights are ridiculous! 40 lbs for economy plus 30 lbs for economy..? Give me a break! Cost me the same amount for my baggage penalty for 5 lbs overweight as my tickets for two! Especially when they tell me to add the extra weight to my carry on... so what's the big deal? Same total baggage weight! I'll never fly with them again!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 20 minutes. Baggage claim delayed another 30 minutes. Made me miss my connecting flight. Then also made me pay. No accommodation on their part. Terrible business."
Cons: "Very little leg room, no complimentary water or snack."
Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Check-in was a disaster, boarding took for ever, getting the luggage took longer than the flight. English is unknown by ground staff. And the plane times had changed."
Cons: "No immigration documents were passed out on the flight from Singapore to BKK causing a bottleneck on arrival. Only one Thai Lion rep. processing entries and passing out docs. Very slow, jepordizing an onward connecting flight."
Pros: "It was awesome, everything was great...."
Cons: "I was in line for the flight and they closed the gate without notifying me"
Pros: "The flight was cheap."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and the food was unpleasant. Also, there was an hour delay but they never announced a delay, it just happened and not one really mentioned why until right before we were actually about to take off."
Pros: "Exit row seats .."
Cons: "No food, drink or water ... no snacks either ... peanuts cost a few baht, 9 baht per bag at 7/11"
Cons: "There was the least amount of legroom I've ever seen on any other airline, my legs were digging into the seat in front of my when I was sitting perfectly upright. They also didn't serve even water."
Cons: "Extremely little leg room. Also they have sneaky charges for luggage weight. Anything over 15kg and they charge you for every extra kilogram. If you want to check in a second luggage you have to check in 4 hours ahead and you still have to pay a lot of money, and it is based on the weight of your luggage . If you don't check in 4 hours in advance and you have an extra suitcase, they charge you by the kilogram and it is ridiculously expensive. More than he cost of the entire flight! And if your flight has multiple legs, you have to pay for the extra luggage every single leg."
Pros: "Brand new planes"
Cons: "Longest check in ever, even on a Monday afternoon.. you'd better be there long ago.. problem with check in : 1- not enough queues provided, 2- check in personnel is not very efficient, 3- no queuing lines, it's messy lines, 4- operation responsible is just an observer with no operational impact"
Pros: "Depart from Don mung airport on time"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. The crew was nice."
Cons: "They never check passengers, if the seatbelts are on."
Pros: "1) seats 2) price 3) timing"
Cons: "1) food"
Pros: "Just a normal service. You got what you pay. But Thai loin air better than others low airlines is free load baggage 15kg and free assigned seat"
Pros: "Nice new aircraft"
Cons: "Took far too long to get off plane and what seemed like an eternity for bags to appear"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The overall floght was ok with the crew pretty helpful. However coming in to land the plane swayed sideaays seemingly to be off course but probably due to wind shear. Touching down was one of the hardest I ever experienced with all passengers in shock on the force it kanded"
Pros: "Boarding process and crew are okay."
Cons: "Sat at exit row, great legroom but no reclining. Seat itself was not comfy."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The price was right and the aircraft are new B737s."
