Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "quiet plane"
Cons: "2.5 hours delayed flight without prompt notifications. Honest and prompt flight-delay alerts. Updates for delay came *every* half-hour. No opportunity to schedule ANYTHING based truthful delay estimations and the lack of timely communication."
Cons: "Bags didn't get loaded, plane delayed. Poor customer service."
Pros: "Staff polite and provided fast service."
Cons: "Boarding was hazy and let room for loosing the plane."
Pros: "Seats and plane condition"
Cons: "The flight was operated by Air Canada, who habitually assume either that the people in the final row have no hand luggage or simply suffer from a severe lack of operational storage capacity. Overhead bins full of spare plastic cups. As far as the crew are concerned, no problem, because you can just push your way three or four rows forward while everyone else is boarding and then take someone else's overhead space. When will Air Canada learn how to run an airline?"
Pros: "Flight went extremely smooth. No issues during the layover they even got us an earlier flight to our layover destination, giving us more time between flights."
Pros: "Our flight boarded slightly later than expected but ended up taking off on time. Flight crew was courteous and provided water the entire time to ensure everyone was hydrated. In flight entertainment was nicely done with a personal touch screen headrest TV that had ample TV and movies to choose from. We landed slightly ahead of schedule and by the time I got to baggage claim, my oversized bag (snowboard bag) was already waiting for me."
Pros: "TV in seat, new plane. I liked nothing else about this crappy airline."
Cons: "Delayed because they couldn't fit the luggage on the plane, had to pay extra for my family to sit together, worst service ever on board, the slowest old ladies pushing the cart, 90 minutes late in perfect weather, took forever to get the baggage."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew helped make the situation better but a 3 hour delay made my experience unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 5 mins before I arrived at airport and never received any notification"
Cons: "Information provided on delays was limited and information on connecting by flights was incorrect"
Pros: "TSA precheck"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Seats little bit cramped in economy"
Cons: "Check in staff not present until after 430, yet it was recommended to arrive at the airport 2 hrs early for the 6am flight. The group of people waiting were unorganized and handled poorly which I suspect was due to such low staffing i.e. 1 person trying to adress, organize and then process ~100 people. Entertainment system didn't work on the flight either."
Pros: "More leg room than on other airlines, friendly crew"
Cons: "No snack provided"
Pros: "The people at the front desk in gander were great"
Cons: "There were delayed at every stop. I had a 9 hour delay because the flight attendant had food poisoning. How was there not a replacement?"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable over all. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "It was hard to connect our computer to the movies. It was rather confusing and eventually we came to the conclusion that there were only 2 films that were compatible with our laptops. They were the unrated films from film festivals."
Pros: "Crew on board as accommodating as they could be."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport to find hundreds of people on line trying to check in. No Air Canada employees were explaining anything to anyone, as we all stood in line for over a hour, nervous we'd miss our flights. Word was passed from the front of the line that the system was down. They held planes, so I guess everyone eventually made it to their flights--but not until everyone was stressed out to the limit. Lack of assistance from Air Canada personnel was glaring."
Pros: "Food on board"
Cons: "Waited 50 mom for delay. Arrived and delayed on tarmac 1hr and long wait into duties."
Pros: "Other than the usher at the check-in desk, all other Air Canada staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Usher at check-in desk had terrible communication skills. He had an antagonist tone that set an aggressive tone for those just trying to comply to his directions."
Pros: "Overall a good experience. Had to pay for food but it was quite good so I didn't mind. Supposedly the crew were short staffed but I found them attentive and helpful and to be honest I believe the people who complained may have been a little precious."
Pros: "Everything was solid."
Cons: "There was no WI-FI which was inconvenient. The crew was good...could have been nicer on the way from Newark to Vancouver."
Cons: "They over sold tickets"
Cons: "i was told if i donot check my self in icant bord he was very rude I am hanNdy cap he did not care over 77years old"
Cons: "The crew was unbelievably rude"
Pros: "The flight attendant Kaldon was amazing. He was friendly, professional, and you could tell he loved his job. He truly made the short flight something special."
Pros: "Delayed without cell phone text notification update."
Cons: "Crew was late and did not apologize. they were also rude during service"
Cons: "Paying for baggage."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "Right on time. No problems boarding"
Cons: "No food/entertainment"
Pros: "It's on time"
Pros: "I liked the newer plane as the head rests were more comfortable with the movable sides."
Pros: "One of the flight attendant saw I needed help holding my second big bag while I was putting my carry on in and she held it for me without me asking and helped me find my seat, it was very stress relieving for me, and I really appreciated that. She was also very nice to everybody."
Cons: "I had a sprite and the amount was very little, I feel like the cups have got smaller. But that's not a big deal"
Pros: "There was an excellent agent during boarding. I didn't catch his name but he was a tall dark skin gentlemen and he went over and beyond to assit me. His kindness left a lasting impression on me. I only wish I had his name, because he deserves to be noticed for his excellent service."
Pros: "Early and luggage delivered quickly"
Cons: "The flight was considerably delayed, so that we missed our connection, the airport personnel at Newark sent us all over the place attempting to pass off the problem onto somebody else- even encouraging passengers to go to Montreal and "figure it out from there." Bags were taken off the plane and then put back on...the subsequent flight (the next day) was also delayed, and required half he plane to sprint through Montreal to their connections. It was not worth it. Especially considering I tried to call Air Canada for some of my refund and the number they gave me was a fax line."
Cons: "Flight out of Newark delayed so we were going to miss the connection. We were rebooked to fly via London but we lost 6 hours in Rome. Air Canada attendant at Newark said the flight was always delayed and passengers regularly needed to be rebooked. You should recommend air Canada cancels selling this itinerary or bringing the Newark flight forward to de risk any delays"
Cons: "All three Air Canada flights that I had to take on this itinerary were late including the 2nd one which was six hours late. Air Canada personnel on this 2nd flight did not do a good job of communicating information to the customers during the delay. Air Canada booked be on a 3rd night that lead me to only get 3 hours sleep in a hotel. AC does not work with the customers when booking flights. they just make changes after the previous flight has left the ground."
Pros: "Flight was good.dela"
Cons: "Delay for both ways"
Pros: "Entertainment system is good"
Cons: "Crew was an hour late arriving at airport so flight was delayed. No food, not even a snack, on a 5+ hour flight is not acceptable."
Pros: "Free movies."
Cons: "Delays at the gate going and coming back"
Pros: "Great crew. But aircraft had mechanical issues."
Cons: "Stuck on plane for 90 minutes before take off."
Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable and didn't recline"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Delayed for 4hrs and less than adequate meal voucher for $10 for dinner? Very disappointed and I'm a long time AC customer."
Pros: "Everyone was super polite"
Cons: "After waiting at the airport for hours with multiple delays the flight cancelled. I still haven't made it home. Today is my little girls 2nd birthday and I have been away from her for 12 days now. The earliest flight I could get is 10am. I won't get home till at least 12 noon."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. We even landed a good 20 minutes before we were supposed to. Best flight I've been had"
Pros: "Crew were good. Good food."
Cons: "For some reason, the seat was very uncomfortable. Rather hard with little cushion."
Cons: "Business class boarding could have been more organized. Was sent to the gate too early from lounge"
Cons: "No entertainment facilities available even in business class"
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."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The pilot landed the plane smoothly. Although had a delayed departure from KUL, we arrived in Sydney earlier than expected."
Cons: "I have never had to stay at a hotel overnight because of a missed connection but when I made the reservation I wondered how you would honor the 1 hour layover and not miss. I wondered this before any of your delays. I was assured the connection would wait but not correct and you did miss. If you would have told me at the airport this would happen I would have made other arrangements. Instructions on what to do was quite poor too. As a foreigner to be handed a stack of vouchers without direction on where to go for transportation wasn’t satisfactory."
Pros: "Good seats and crew."
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Pros: "Everything on the plane was fine, and the service was great."
Cons: "Not being delayed on the first leg and missing my connecting flight to Denpasar would have been great."
Pros: "Helping and immediate response."
Pros: "All went Well, no delays, good service."
Cons: "I was incorrectly charged credit card fees by BudgetAir as I paid via debit card and they never replied to my emails or answered the phone. This caused stress as my bank account went overdrawn. Cannot recommend BudgetAir at all. Appalling lack of customer service. Avoid like the plague!"
Pros: "Some staff were good others could not be bothered."
Cons: "Nicer staff"
Cons: "Worst business class seat in the air. Departed 90 minutes late due to mechanical issues"
Cons: "Seat, food, service"
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Cons: "He is cheating telling normal taxi cant for two adualt and three chalidren to buy taket for double price for min bus or van , that person in charge is laieing and not respecting i hope to take acsing because they are the face of malysia visitor and i think no boday will except cheating even for one ringet . If need any details for the person can contact me."
Cons: "They charged for the ticket but blocked the ticket so i had to buy mew ticket"
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!"
Pros: "Retested additional blankets and got them."
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry to provide drinks and remove trays; ttrays were no hot drinks provided; overall, the crew seemed cold and not approachable."
Pros: "Attendants were very good"
Cons: "12 hrs in the air!!!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly although some of the announcement was not clear."
Cons: "We had bad experience with the airline because our luggage was not to be found at Langkawi airport and we had make a report. Fortunately about 8 hours later our luggage was sent to our resort which we stayed. (we arrived Langkawi airport around 3pm, we were told by the officer that our luggage will be sent to our resort at 7pm but it came at 11pm instead) The snacks could have been better. Besides the salted peanuts, it would be better to add biscuits or a slice of cake. The orange juice is good but maybe if we are given choice of warm drink (tea or coffee) it would be great."
Pros: "Better overall service - boarding, no delays, comfortable cabins, pleasant crew."
Cons: "the windows were a bit smudged from previous passengers"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour. We had problem getting the attention of the crew as all of them were just hanging around the galley."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5hours"
Pros: "We like to thank you for all your staff are good taking for all of us. We would like to make recommends it to all our friends. May the Living Lord and our Almighty God bless you, your staffs and your business abundantly! Amen!"
Pros: "the staff were pleasant"
Cons: "the food was ok as I like spicy. But one mouthful of water and a small wine. soft drink, etc was not enough on a 4 hour flight. Leg room was very bad. I am average hight 5 ft 10 inch but could only sit sideways aas not enough room"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over 3 hours resulting in us missing our connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur to China and then Los Angeles . Malaysia airlines did not apologize or help us with rebooking our flights or offering hotel accommodation. They just left a family of five with no flight, stuck in Malaysia with no options of getting home. . Flight crew had very hard bumpy landing on both legs of flight and maybe they need to go review landing protocol so that we don't have to have a hard rough landing"
Pros: "I like their timely service and cleanliness."
Pros: "Plane (A380)"
Cons: "Limited choice menu, some minor malfunctioning seats & screens"
Pros: "Flight was on time - to the detriment of my late connecting MAS flight from DAR"
Cons: "Food was okay but entertainment was non existent"
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: "Easy to get my boarding pass at the Changi airport. Seating was nice. Not many passengers in this flight."
Cons: "The magazine in my seat pocket was dirty."
Pros: "The cabin crew was welcoming. The flight itself was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The smell of the toilets were really bad. Urine on the floor. I know I purchased economy class tickets but I expect the toilet facility to be better maintained."
Pros: "Efficient check in"
Cons: "Lost baggage took 24 hours to arrive. Rude staff."
Cons: "It appears the staff don't want to be there, long check in queues, poor in-flight service, average food, not even offer water in-flight, plane was dirty, entertainment average, not at the standard for a full service carrier."
Pros: "There was nothing positive about the experience on this flight. With exit row seats had to stow luggage back in overhead holds which meant having to go back on landing, retrieve bag & for get way back to seat. Not Airlines fault but no gantry available on arrival. Up and down runway until available (20min) before we could exit."
Cons: "Fact that once again confirmed seating was changed from original booking. Extremely frustrating. Slight delay on take off. Had exit row seats."
Pros: "On time departure, nice aircraft and entertainment."
Cons: "Crew Service is horrible. They get angry very easily."
Cons: "Seats feel super cramped"
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: "Short trip 50 mins"
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and professional."
Cons: "Cue to check-in was ridiculous! Employ more staff so that the wait time is comparable to other airlines. Alcohol - why is there no alcohol on the KUL/BKK leg? I thought that this was an international flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The boarding process was a waste of time"
Pros: "Comfort ok"
Cons: "I'm a 4 years Globe trotter Malaysia airlines is one of the worse companies I know my backpack new generation for great traveller by few months before at $600 form Kathmandu been torn up ( tear ) with shoes print on my backpack I'm not recommend this companies to anyone it was my first and last time I used ."
Pros: "The equipment and level of service on this MAS flight was excellent. Food was delicious. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Though it wasn't part of the flight, the business class lounge at KUL is just a step below the excellent facilities at airports like HKG. Just a step though, mostly in the shower area. Food options were great though. And take advantage of the Massage Spa within the lounge."
Pros: "The apps gave a good guide on the check in and check out time"
Cons: "Clearer baggage policy. Be informed no of luggages based on the purchased price and not refered to the baggage policy of AA which is not used in my trains pacific flight"
Pros: "on time, friendly service"
Cons: "cannot think of anything"
Cons: "WiFi and entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was adequate."
Cons: "The airplane was old and dirty."
Pros: "I booked my business flight through kayak, but looks like kayak is using Flyus.com who’s has a nasty customer service. Even requesting meals cost money. Air China can’t do anything with my flight and are sending me to the kayak.com. I will never again book through kayak and will be reporting this"
Cons: "Don’t sell services through Flyus.com."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "The aircraft was super old. The flight was delayed. The transfer at PEK (beijing) airport is horrendous. Never again."
Pros: "crews are kind and help."
Cons: "entertainment system sucks, no internet"
Pros: "Lounge in lax was wonderful"
Cons: "Boarding for business class was a mess"
Cons: "Make the flights on time!!! Cancelles my flight and totally ruined my vacation!!"
Cons: "For this plane, the seat is very cramp - leg room has shrunk. Entertainment selection is poor, no new movies at all - like watching reruns."
Pros: "Flight left on time and got to Beijing on time. Everything was fast and easy. Crew member helped me with luggage. Food was good. The only thing is entertainment, not good."
Cons: "The entertainment."
Pros: "I have requested refund my money but still pending"
Cons: "arrived in Beijing and flight was delayed - unknown departure time. no English information available. waited 2 hours to get info"
Pros: "Once aboard it was fine"
Cons: "I was delayed by a connecting flight and there was no way to pre-check, notify the airline or get ahold of anyone to let this be known in advance. I tried customer service for airline, for travel agent etc. no way to get ahold of anyone. Thought I was there at the time of boarding, they would not let me board, because I was not within their 1 hour check in time so I missed the flight. Since connections to Korea are only once per day, I was delayed a full 24 hours and endured several more hardships that could have been easily avoided with some good customer service. Also, it was stifling hot inside the aircraft and the crew could not seem to help cool it off despite twice asking them to get me some air-flow."
Pros: "The food was really go and the flight attendants were really nice"
Cons: "Seats weren’t so comfortable so I will next time splurge on better seats"
Cons: "Their seat arrangement. I feel a little more like being in the coach"
Pros: "Very clean and staffs was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Need more movies option."
Pros: "On time low budget very good for The price"
Cons: "The flight was very hot the entire 12 hours, no individual air controls were present. We asked for a beer when the first drink service came around and were told only juice or water was available, while the next row of seats were served multiple beers without issue. After the service was over we rang the attendant button, it was immediately shut off and no one came to assist us. Rows ahead and behind us ran an attendant and were served. We asked again for a beer and were told they didn’t have it (these were all by the same attendant that was serving our area, who was liberally serving others in our area) We eventually got up to and went to the service station, where 5-7 other passengers were standing, helping themselves to beers in the carts and pouring themselves wine while flight attendants stood there chatting with them and continuing to ignore us. Eventually we were able to get ones attention and were able to secure two beers, after being told Mulltuple times that they didn’t have them, while other passengers were being served multiple at a time, or helping themselves to the beverage carts in the service areas. Staff was unprofessional and the entire flight was a battle for service. I have flown many 12+ hour flights and never had any stress or issues whatsoever, this was a new and frankly terrible experience. I am wishing my flight home was not with this airline, as I am afraid of a repeat."
Cons: "The food doesn’t taste good"
Pros: "Everything fine"
Pros: "Food was good. Flight attendants were good."
Cons: "Tiny beds in business class with two-across seating so the window passenger has to climb over the aisle passenger. Are they stuck in the 90s? I won't fly with them again. Boarding in Beijing for Manila was a free for all. Business class was not called first. Isn't this why I pay triple the coach fare? No English language newspapers from Los Angeles to Beijing."
Pros: "Nice clean plane"
Cons: "Very bad food boiled vegetable and meat with no taste at all. Most entertainment movies, music and video in Chinese language."
Pros: "Absolutely no customer service whatsoever, not even a smile. Best thing about this flight was the food and trust me that’s not saying much."
Pros: "Attentive gate staff who made sure there were no issues with my seat and made sure to seat me with my husband. Honestly just a long coach flight, maybe don’t fly coach if you can’t handle being a little uncomfortable. I was expecting much worse from some of the reviews. Bring your own food though. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Terrible online check in."
Pros: "Good for the price i payed!"
Pros: "No hassle check in and boarding."
Cons: "Meals were average. Rice meals are better than the noodles. IFE selection for US passengers could be better. No cell allowed after take off."
Cons: "Wverything else"
Cons: "Held my bag for two days, No explanation, apparently just wanted to rummage through it. Stranded in Mongolia with no clean clothes or medication."
Cons: "Cabin was really dirty, carpet coming apart and stain on the seats"
Cons: "Every single flight was delayed. 15 hour trip turned into a 40 hour one. Notice of flight rescheduling was given on the day of the flight. They did not give us a hotel room during a 12 hour wait caused by a misconnect due to their delays"
Cons: "Almost four hour delay to destination"
Cons: "The video selections had limited appeal to westerners."
Cons: "Beijing airport was under construction. There was long delay."
Pros: "Serving two meals"
Cons: "Coffee was bad"
Cons: "I got my baggage after 4 days from landing."
Pros: "Only boarding"
Cons: "No drunks like other flights"
Pros: "Short ride over to Phoenix, very nice trip"
Cons: "The fact that they closed the ticket counter 1hr and 10min before the flight left and I missed my flight! Then when I asked the man he said well you should always be an hour and a half early. To bad we are going home... I am a United States military member who was home on leave and this was my first time in La. such a horrible trip. I had to borrow money to rebook my flight."
Pros: "Nothing. Flew business class only and each time the service was mediocre at best. Food is good going to China, terrible coming back. Worst part was the crew. I've been a pilot and an FAA inspector; after confronting the crew about smelling smoke on board and asking why the smoke detectors had been disabled,they simply played stupid."
Cons: "Several safety violations. I wouldn't fly this airline again even if they paid me."
Pros: "When you are on a very long flight it would be nice to have a crew that is pleasant and nice . I will never fly this airline again. One of the many instance of rudesness from the crew was after a long while where I was sitting the person smelled so I saw an empty seat in the back and say there since no one was using it. The crew member rudely made me go back to my seat and indure 13 long hours uncomfortable"
Cons: "I didn't get my luggages when I boarding in Xiamen. My luggages were stopped in Beijing. So I have to stay in hotel a night. And the airports make me to back to pickup my luggages at the second day."
Cons: "My luggage was not on the plane when I landed in destination even though I was at the airport at 5 in the morning and I didn't fly out at 8 at night... they went through my luggage taking all my brand new zippo lighter that was not even used yet stating that they had fuel in them which they confascated in China. There was no help where to go when you landed in Beijing. Didn't get my luggage til 3 days later delaying my travel"
Pros: "Nice choice in movies in English and Chinese on the newer planes. The older ones don't have tvs--that made for a long dreadful flight."
Cons: "The seats feel small, I felt like my knees were hitting the chair in front on me. The food was AWFUL and hugely lacking in alcohol choices for an international flight. Too many on board announcements. not enough water offered. Had to flag someone down multiple times."
