Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Very good for the price I paid"
Cons: "Somehow I couldn't check in online, or at the kiosk. There was only 2 check-in desk for domestic flights in KLIA2. Long lines and waited 20 minutes. Thankfully the staff at the counter allowed me to check in, despite having only 50 minutes to spare."

(Ouch) Anyway after paying the extra bag fee I went there office in the airport and purchased the same extra bag for my return flight for $28.00. Nice flight but make sure you purchase ample baggage when booking your flight."

Cons: "I got what I paid for."
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"

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: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."

Cons: "Always worry delay"
Pros: "First time I've flown with them. I was very impressed"
Cons: "I liked everything"
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."
Pros: "Great overall economic airline to travel with considering the price paid. I am glad to have the options to NOT pay for the food and entertainment since I never used it during a flight less than 6 hours. I am sure the food and entertainment is good for many passengers paid for them. The flight is on time, the boarding is well organized, the crew is courteous and bathroom is clean."
Pros: "Flight is not so full"
Cons: "So far so good"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Take off and landing was smooth."
Pros: "Turnaround is fast, efficient boarding."

Pros: "Everything was there"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Staff, flight, seats, etc. were all good. We will fly Air Asia more in the future."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. Everything went as seamless as a flight can be."
Pros: "Overall not bad the flight left on time and was a good flight."
Cons: "Please be forewarned, pay for your bags ahead of time if you can figure out how. We had a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and had not paid for our bags. It ended up costing us more for two bags than the flight for the both of us. For that reason alone I would probably not fly with them again unless it was the only option."
Cons: "It was my first time flying a LCC. OK, it is my fault for not knowing they charge much higher rate of extras for any add-ons you fail to include when you first book the flight. I get it. But why do they make it impossible to access "manage your flight" online to make necessary changes on return flight? And I got nowhere with the online chat box, s nowhere to turn.... Making such changes on Tiger Air was so much easier and intuitive. I'll never fly Air Asia if I can help it."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "All food and drinks were sold at additional cost, not even small snacks or water included in the price of the flight ticket."
Pros: "cant think of anything."
Cons: "the air asia klia2 terminal is a dump. the gate seats are rock hard/uncomfortable. the air con in the terminal was set too cold. I think the check-in baggage fee was too high. if I would have ordered food the price would have been close to ctrip fairs, and on those flights u might get entertainment. I don't think I saved that much to not consider other carriers next time."
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "All god no food"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Silkair service was insincere and lousy nowadays."
