Pros: "Spacious leg room."
Cons: "The food is average. Could be much better. Eg, serve eggs like omelette for Breakfast. Only one choice . The other choice could be Jap menu vi differing it’s s Japanese airline. Flew JAL 2 yrs ago too. Food was not good. Also , toilets could be cleaner. There’s always a pungent smell."

Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice. Food was okay, while the legroom was good too."
Cons: "Delayed flight, but the email notification from JL was lacking the most important detail... The new take off time! It was 70 minutes later than advertised, but then delayed by another five minutes on top after a late take off."
Pros: "Good service. Flight went off without a problem."
Pros: "This flight was part of a longer trip - I flew from Hartford, CT, USA on a different airline and connected to Japan Airlines in Chicago. I flew Chicago to Tokyo in JAL and then from Tokyo to Manila again on JAL. The service on first leg was very good and friendly of my JAL flights, food was good, seat was comfortable. Then on my second flight from Tokyo to Manila I was shocked but thrilled that I had been given an upgrade to first class. The whole experience was outstanding! The seat was incredibly comfortable and the food was phenomenal. The only problem, not that you could call it a problem, was that I was so comfortable with my fluffy pillow and fully reclining seat that I couldn’t stay awake to finish my movie! Thank you!"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Cons: "limited rest room facilities"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled from Narita to Hong Kong and they put me up in a small unclean room. I was very disappointed with their service."
Pros: "Shortest travel time to Japan"
Cons: "OLD PLANES Touchscreens won't 50% of the time"
Pros: "I was surprised that such a short flight was able to use the newest generation of the 737, the 800 series. While as cramped your typical 737, the seat backs are super thin to allow just that much extra leg room for my two-meter frame. As always, the cabin crew was lovely."
Pros: "I had only 30 minutes transaction time at Busan airport, and was not sure that I could catch my plane. The crew at the airport were very helpful, and a lady brought me to the security gate, and run out and checking in for me. With their help, I was able to catch the planes and arrived my destination on schedule. Thank you so much."
Pros: "Excellent customer service!"
Pros: "Service & Food"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient. Cabin and lavatories were clean."
Cons: "The interior seems dated, with old-school channel based entertainment system, unlike the ondemand IFE most Asian airlines are equipped with. Meal service was also very slow - took over 50 minutes to serve the economy cabin. There was no choice of main available.. Main was an array of fish cakes type street snacks. It was edible but not impressive."
Pros: "The entertainment package was the best ever encountered with seemingly endless choices, keeping us happy all fight long. The seating seemed a bit crowded, and the food was mediocre. We survived, however, without any problem and overall enjoyed our first Dreamliner flight."
Cons: "Windows were dimmed most of the flight."
Pros: "Japan Airlines is far more spacious than all domestic airlines. The food and beverage options were comparable to most airlines like Delta, United, etc, but presentation was better so they get style points. Their wifi connectivity was far better than Gogo's services, which is the provider for most domestic airlines. The real improvement compared to most my travel was the level of service. The staff was incredibly attentive."
Cons: "Still waiting for the day wifi at 30k feet is comparable in speed to at least a public cafe. Also, when will one of these airlines start providing balanced meal options that are actually palatable. JAL's food was okay, but heavy on starches and fats with low quality protein or vegetables to accompany them."
Cons: "Entertainment and access to Wifi"
Pros: "Super good crew."
Pros: "Efficiency, good."
Pros: "Cabin crew knew how to work."
Cons: "So surprisingly, the cabin was dirty and the seat comfort was below expectation."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines is so wildly overrated. The service is frequently poor, and the cabin environment dirty and old unless flying on their very latest planes. Even their A380s are now stale and musty. Not nice."
Pros: "Seats are big as old plane"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment system therefore very old too. Service was slow, 2 hours after start till they serve dinner, another 1 hour to clear. No special boarding for staralliance gold members"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great entertainment system Good staff"
Cons: "Not comfortable seats"
Pros: "Service, staff, food, and comfort! Def the better Business class seats I've had. This was the A380 and, the first legwas a 770 but that was really great also. Awesome work Singapore Airlines"
Cons: "SQ860 flight on 4th April morning delayed and greatly affected my today trip scheduled."
Pros: "Crew members very friendly. Foods are excellent. Kids have priority to have their meals first."
Pros: "Boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Very slow service, took 2 hours. Entertainment system didn't worked for first half of flight."
Pros: "I've always flown Singapore airlines wherever possible. Standards are unbeatable until this flight..."
Cons: "The dinner was terrible. I am a long time customer of Singapore Airlines and I know where the standard are. The food on this flight was the worst I've seen. The starter (vermicelli) was overly salty, dry and severely undercooked. The main course was acceptable but the portion of chicken was more like side dish not main. Missing sides."
Pros: "Classy cabin staff"
Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Could have had a better selection of movies"
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. Although we took of a little late but we landed as per schedule. Service was personalised! Great trip."
Pros: "The food was excellent for Vegan meals. The staff was friendly and attentive. The ability to see the flight path, air speed and such is very nice."
Cons: "The entertainment was not the kind of shows I like. Never mind, I see the flight path and orher flight particulars."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Kids' meal didn't have fruits. No cellphone charger."
Pros: "Neat & clean flight.good cabin crew members.good service."
Cons: "Food served was not so good. Toilets are very small compared to other flights..speacially SFA - Singapore flight."
Pros: "Upgraded to biz class, which was fantastic"
Cons: "Headphones were not functioning properly"
Pros: "Great service and very friendly staff."
Cons: "poor ground and inflight crews hospitality poor food quality poor food variation"
Pros: "Good service and entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight from Singapore to Mumbai was of a lower standard."
Cons: "Food wise can be improved. But for flight meat from ecomnomy class; it's considered good enough."
Pros: "Excellent experience as usual by SIA."
Cons: "The plane is a bit aged in SIA standard. No USB charging. IFE screen is not bright enough."
Pros: "Polite crew took good care of my needs"
Cons: "Food was really bad could do better . Movies were not as current but a good collection."
Pros: "everything, excellent job"
Pros: "again, the crew anticipated our needs"
Pros: "Good seats, personal TV with movies and good shows. They gave us socks, blamkets, pillows headphones, etc."
Cons: "The crew was chronically rude to me. They would skip me when handing out beverages to everyone. I was lied to and passed down the beaurocracy over issues with my Stopover Holiday packages. They lost my bags. In Hong kong, I was told the designated smoking area in the terminal was close and the steward encouraged me to go...I almost missed the flight even though I didn't even make it to where she directed me. It was not close, she was a liar. They lost my bags. They kept calling me sir despite my corrections and obvious female anatomy. They had no remorse or apologies for their errors"
Cons: "The food was very poor indeed, the entertainment system was not working in my seat or the seat behind, I had to move to another seat"
Pros: "Service is amazing! I loved that airplane had Christmas decorations on the walls and great choices of food and beverages."
Pros: "I am still trying to find my bags. I missed my connection and Jet Blue made me stand in a line to get rebooked for 7 hours. Unprofessional, uncaring. None of this was my fault but everyone who represents Jet Blue treated me as if it were. Never again"
Pros: "got us there, efficient and effective crew."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "No sound on my entertainment system"
Pros: "In-flight Entertainment. Orderly & on-time boarding."
Cons: "Food selection was limited given we were traveling Economy class."
Cons: "old facilities"
Pros: "The food, the seating, the upgrade, the very polite and attentive staff. I thanked them, and for that, they gave me a hand written note and a set of cards. So sweet. Totally worth it to fly Singapore."
Cons: "I didn't like how Vayasan and Singapore airlines telephone check in both claimed they could not upgrade. It was part of the policy/seating I bought. They were wrong, the airlines at San Francisco airport did it without blinking, after checking my visa status."
Pros: "I like your new entertainment devices and big screen"
Cons: "the number of movies is a little bit less. the category of videos is not clear."
Pros: "Singapore airlines was awesome. I really enjoyed the hospitality of the cabin crew. They were very helpful and very eager to fill my needs. I will fly Singapore Airlines again without hesitation."
Cons: "Be more descriptive with which connecting flights we need to go on. We were not aware we we're supposed to get on Silk Air as one of our connecting flights, but we did eventually figure it out. It would really help to let us know your subsidiary companies."
Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."
Pros: "Staff friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Overall, the Singapore Airlines team are always professional and friendly. They pay attention to every detail and try to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. One of my favorite things about this airline is that snack and juice are readily available throughout the entire flight without bothering the flight attendants, say in the middle of the night. This includes fresh fruit and juice, which in my book is a huge plus. Their bathrooms are always clean and include extra cosmetic amenities."
Cons: "Sometimes I feel like the cuisine is a bit too Asian and spicy. I had the fish curry and paid for it later in the flight in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. Also I was disappointed that I could not continue the same movie on this flight, as my previous flight, despite both flights being Singapore Air and using the KrisWorld entertainment system. I think the movies should be the same on each flight. However, the wide selection was great and I watched something else instead and really enjoyed the music selection."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The quality of the red wine"
Pros: "I love it"
Pros: "If youre searching for airlines with best timing no delay and great service, book your flight with singapore airlines without any hesitation"
Pros: "We lucked out and got seats with leg room! Yeah!!!! Thank you."
Cons: "Breakfast was very late into CPH and they only had one choice... Think maybe some ovens were not turn on!"
Pros: "Have travelled before many times as an individual and always had a good experience. This was the first time travelled with my infant. I had earlier travelled on Emirates last month . I have to say SIA CREW is miles ahead of any airline and my Experience was nothing short of magnificent. The little things the crew does makes the journey more comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "Your staff behavior at your counter at Hongkong airport. They did not bother to organize wheel chair which was requested on line. We had to board the fee flight without wheel chair."
Cons: "Chose emergency exit on Cathay 777-300. Terrible.. was squished like a sardine! And I was in window seat... was not even able to eat! Worst economy class I have been in years!!! Never again...."
Pros: "Everything was on time and the food and service was good."
Cons: "Food was lacking, everything else excellent! Not enough components to the meals. Be nice to have cheese/crackers. Better salad."
Pros: "Changi. Wow.."
Cons: "Aircraft rather not modern."
Pros: "Very disappointed in the service provided"
Cons: "Contact the customer for flight changes instead of doing it automatically for the customer. I woke up to text messages letting me know my flight was changed from 0635 to 2135. I had major plans for the next few days and couldn’t afford to take that risk."
Pros: "The luggage space was good."
Pros: "seat and flight were great , smooth ride as well"
Cons: "breakfast could be better but was fine"
Pros: "Everything’s was fine."
Cons: "5 hour last minute delay."
Cons: "flight lates as always"
Pros: "One of the nicest crews I've had the pleasure of flying with"
Cons: "Nothing I could tell at the moment....."
Cons: "Flight delayed out of Singapore. Airline should have at least notified earlier so passengers can arrive later to the airport Cabin crew on board rude ‘sorry i’m too busy now’ [just asking for a glass of water] Plane then sitting at HK airport waiting for open gate Arrival timed just perfectly to prevent passengers from catching the last airport express train"
Pros: "Boarding quick n fast"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, leg n body, space too small n my left seat is a big sizes man , right seat is a very fat man , I can’t even move . my seat don’t have headset n request one , but until reached Hong Kong I still didn’t get it n I m in plane for 4hrs doing nothing, no games no songs n no shows. Thank for your concern . Really appreciate."
Cons: "seat cushion for the back is too hard."
Cons: "Nice flight nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed as always"
Pros: "- Good food - Good choice of entertainment - Comfortable seats - Polite staff & well organized"
Pros: "I am a wheelchair user and Cathay Pacific took excellent care of me"
Pros: "The new plane"
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Pros: "I enjoyed the good check in service, and the excellent lounges. As always, the overall level of service on Cathay was good."
Cons: "The utterly appalling seats on Cathay's old B777s are unacceptable for a premium airline. Non-reclining economy seats which are desperately uncomfortable for any flight of more than 1 hour, and completely unsuitable for an overnight flight. These planes desperately need a refit. Best avoided until this has been completed. The flight was overbooked, and the cabin crew seemed stressed and very busy. As a long term frequent flyer with CX, this was a very disappointing experience."
Cons: "3h delay on the way in 1h delay on the way back"
Pros: "Food and drinks, service of the crews."
Cons: "Flight delay of 20 mins."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific were great slight delay in Singapore due to incoming flight. A350 plane wonderful quiet and decent space in economy. Food and entertainment was good and well time food serving."
Cons: "Arriving Hong Kong and getting a taxi... first impressions count and Taxis are rude and a rip off. Not what you expect from a renowned international airport"
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "6,5 hrs delayed"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "Comfortable seats - good entertainment"
Cons: "4-5 minutes of commercials before being able to watch the movie on the plane."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."
Pros: "Flight personnel go out of there way to smile and make you feel wanted on this flight and the previous flight enroute to Singapore from Hong Kong. Food was OK, too."
Pros: "Most crew very helpful. Great movie and music selection."
Cons: "Middle row every time and difficult to get out.(economy). Out of the Asian meal again for people in the back of the plane. Was unable to check in on line for some reason, but taken care of at airport."
Pros: "Very enjoyable flight. Plenty of legroom in the bulk seating. Service was very good and food was OK."
Cons: "Seats in economy are not that thick therefore not comfortable to sit for a long time."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class 2 twice. Great service and caring staff"
Pros: "Midnight flight, so did not request anything. Normal."
Cons: "Was informed flight delay after we've reached airport for check in. Which is 1 1/2 earlier from departure time. Should have inform earlier. New scheduled time 2.05am, but can only board at 2.10am, so flight timing delayed beyond 2.05am."
Pros: "The food and service"
Pros: "Went up and down as planned."
Cons: "Late departure due to storms results in late arrival. Seat didn't work as expected. USB charger didn't work and interfered with the headset."
Cons: "Those economy seats can only fit a child comfortably."
Pros: "Crew/staff very professional,"
Pros: "Boarding and security is very efficient at Changi - other airports should take note."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, comfortable seats, and great service on the plane!"
Pros: "Reboot shut my system down for a bit. Rebooting restored ok"
Pros: "Sing-Hong Kong seating comfort."
Cons: "Terrible food on Cathay now. All meals were barely edible."
Pros: "Crew Service and Leg space is great. Automatic check-in station is simple and easy to operate, speeds up the queue for checking-in and luggage drop."
Cons: "Seat has no recline option, only movable part is the base of seat, back support recline is not available, thus making it impossible to rest. Food was served cold, CX used to be much better at food handling, cold omelette and soggy bacon is definitely not appetizing even for a hungry morning flight. Entertainment is ok, nice options, but LCD screen is getting old and blurry, rather not strain my eyes to try watch anything on it."
Cons: "Too rigid on the weight of hand carry luggages. 7kg (including the case/bag) is less than other airlines."
Pros: "Connecting timing were great and everything were perfect!"
Cons: "The walk to gate 50 at HK International Airport.... the walk seems to be taking forever and I cannot imagine if someone were to have a short connecting time....."
Pros: "Food was pretty good and the staff helped with providing tea periodically."
Cons: "The chicken rice was a bit disappointing. On the way out from Bangkok to Fukuoka the food was better. I was left wandering around at the Hong Kong airport to find the gate. The transfer station at E2 was hard to find - more signs or better directions from personnel would have helped. This was in contrast to the exceptional treatment I received from CP when I was making my close connection in Hong Kong on the way from Bangkok to Fukuoka. The lady helped escort me through the airport to make sure I caught my flight and had been waiting there as I exited the plane -- that was fantastic but in sharp contrast to my experience on the return segments."
Pros: "I had a great time in Cathay. Selection of menu was slightly above average and the movies were updated. For the price I paid, I think I got more than I expected."
Cons: "Crew could be friendlier. Seats are stiff and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Passenger next me kept getting up and flopping down in the seat, waking me up."
Pros: "Price. Crew was very attentive and nice."
Cons: "Food was poor and only one out of three entree choices were available. That entree was pasta with cubed potatoes, with a side of cold potatoes in a vinegar sauce. Three starches! The economy seats are extremely uncomfortable for a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "Love the individual screens and excellent customer service. Food wasn't bad for airplane food. Nice job and will fly it again!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Poor selection of food; they ran out of the chicken entree! You should have more chicken entrees; have less beef entrees since a lot of people are avoiding beef!"
Pros: "There wasnt much to like about the flight except that we didnt end up dead."
Cons: "Where do you start? Boarding process made no sense so i wont even try to explain it. Just trust me. Once we got on the plane they wouldnt let me plug into the usb port while we were on the ground. Food Service was terrible. They woke me up (minutes after id fallen asleep) for both food service. First time i thought was accident. Second time i asked them not to wake me up and they said i have to get a do not disturb sticker (why wasnt i just given one before so i could make the decision to use it or not on my own?) Also the food was terrible. I dont expect much from airline food but i can say ive had acceptable meals on other airlines (emirates and lufthansa). The food was not what i expected for one of the highest rated airlines. The flight attendant had me put the seat up during food service so the lady behind me could eat. Wtf?? Never had to do that on another airline. When i was not sleeping they rarely came down the isles with water or juice trays. (I saw it once toward the end of the flight)...and trust me i didnt miss it because i was sleeping. When i did get water i had to beg for ice as well."
Pros: "The ice cream dessert."
Cons: "No tube to the terminal due to SEA Games. Bus service provided from tarmac to temporary immigration counters."
Pros: "Free space"
Cons: "Layover switch"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "Since I booked the flight last minute and I needed a special meal, there was no option to book one. It helps if there are such meals reserved for last minute bookings"
Pros: "Flight was on time boarding and arriving"
Cons: "1). Didn’t have enough food so only one option was available 2.) seats cramped like a budget airline 3.). Pilot made a harsh landing."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and the crew was attentive. The main flight attendant knew our names and greeted us as we entered and left the plane by name. The food was very good and wine pairing appropriate."
Cons: "They did security checks at the gate rather than upon entry to the concourse. It slowed everything down on boarding. Any double check caused a delay."
Pros: "Was very much on time, quick flight and boarding."
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment but did have free wifi"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Airport security was complicated. Had to go through security checks 3 times. Once at the gate (early) had to leave the area and go through security to sit at the gate again."
Pros: "Helpful staffs"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Nice flight attendant. Alcohol included."
Cons: "Snack choices. More tea and coffee"
Pros: "Flight is amazing, sacious seats and best quality entertainment. Most importantly only airlines to give inflight free wifi"
Cons: "Airport crew can be better trained. They have 2step interview process about my travel which is annoying and irrelevant."
Pros: "nothing good about this airlines they sell cheap fares and overcrowded planes"
Cons: "they do not offer any veg food"
Pros: "plane and crew"
Cons: "mla airport is at its worse"
Pros: "comfort is alright"
Cons: "no entertainment not even music"
Pros: "great new plane."
Pros: "Everything was smooth - no issues or delays. Food was great Would fly with them again for short distances."
Cons: "Apparently if you book with a third party booking Philippine Airlines does not provide you with meal or hotel voucher in Manila for long layover (22 hours). Had I booked directly through them they would have provided meals/hotel for the night. Instead we had to get two rooms for our family of 6. For this, I wouldn’t recommend them (if using third party booking)."
Pros: "Crew is nice"
Cons: "Older plane and seating. Boarding not great in SG. Food marginal."
Pros: "They gave us a meal on a 2 and a half hour flight! Amazing service."
Cons: "It was a bit tight. Not much legroom."
Pros: "Friendly filipino airport staff and PAL stewardess are friendly and accomodating"
Cons: "Very long que at HK immigration"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Nice plane. They fed us even though it was less than 2 hour flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, late take off. Chicken nuggets I had we're bland."
Pros: "It's a Philippine Flag carrier. It's a privilege to patronize our own carrier."
Cons: "No hassles at all. Generally a smooth flight to HongKong."
Pros: "It was like most other flights ie it was fine. Above average overall."
Cons: "A big negative was the transit lounge in Manila. Between 2 Philippine Airline flights we had an 8 hour layover in the Manila transit lounge. Not impressed at all. There were about 4/5 staff but they sat outside the lounge & did nothing to control the passengers & keep them quiet /organised. The lounge was very crowded, very noisy & there was only water to drink & nothing to eat. For 8 hours! The very least should be to supply more seating & a facility where passengers can order coffee/tea & snacks. Also there was only 1 ladies toilet, so always occupied. The lounge Definately needs an urgent upgrade in facilities then I would consider flying Phillipine Aiines again."
Pros: "Crew was fine food mediocre"
Cons: "Leg room is real tight. Hardly any space to move. Compared to other airlines the A320-200 Philippine Airlines aircraft has been packed with way too many seats. Will not fly them again."
Pros: "Loved that the crew boarded everyone accorsig to seat zone starting with the backmost part... enabled speedy boarding and you'd think this would be SOP but many PAL flights don't do this. Always happy with the refurbished aircraft and selection of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online due to the kind of ticket I bought. Was willing to pay for bulkhead seats but had no chance due to unavailability."
Cons: "The stewardess as usual they are not friendly as they should be with the passenger, I have been flying with philippines airlines often time hoping the crew will be super smily and friendly, they are cold as ice !"

Cons: "One hour delay starting and 45 min. at the end, no Gate available."
Pros: "Great staff very nice and enterianment system at each seat was very good."
Pros: "The food was good"

Cons: "Can't watch the tv cause no earphone"
Cons: "Manila airport and airline staff are terrible"
Pros: "The in flight meal was very. The cabin crew was friendly and gave good service."
Cons: "Legroom could have been better."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave at 7:30 PM, but got delayed to a 10 PM takeoff. You'd think the crew would be apologetic, attentive and considerate given the time change, but it was even the lead flight attendant who kept making announcements (duty free, serving dinner, weather, time, seatbelt status change, everything). Nighttime flights are supposed to be more peaceful with announcements kept to a minimum, right?"
Cons: "Food was awful and no entertainment"
Cons: "Horrible service, delayed every leg of the flight for 2 and half hrs. Staff are very lazy and the plane was so dirty! Especially the bathroom. The food was bad also. Omg I will never take this airline again"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Very bad, delay 90 minutes"
Pros: "Fast checkin process"
Cons: "I'm 6'5" and the standard economy seats are much to small to even fit my knees. I little had to spend 3+ hours with my knees pulled up to even fit and it was the most uncomfortable flight experience of my life. The staff on board would not accommodate at all and told me it was airline policy to not allow me to switch seats. Pathetic! Never flying this airline again."
Pros: "Good service, but the food was HORABLE. !!"
Pros: "I'm quite tall and the flight attendants quickly moved me (without even me having to ask!) to an exit row with more leg room. And I must admit that these were some of the friendliest flight attendants I've ever had...always smiling and polite."
Pros: "Large, new plane, modern. Wonderful crew."
Cons: "Air traffic into and out of Manila is heavy and causes delays. We waited 19 minutes to land coming into Manila and my Hong Kong flight waited 15 minutes on the tarmac waiting to take off."
Pros: "the service was great"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and very friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing really. For a no-frills flight, it was a great value"

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "quality of food"

Pros: "On time and very friendly helpful staff. Especially ground crew"

Pros: "Good music Took off EARLY and landed EARLY"
Cons: "Sprayed the cabin with bug spray"
Pros: "This is now our airline of choice between KL and Singapore and the next time we fly to Australia we will try flying with Air Asia. It was a very short flight so entertainment was not provided, and we were perfectly happy with that. Very reasonable fare. All staff were charming and very helpful. Highly recommend."
Pros: "Efficient boarding....took off early in both directions!"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The head stewardess pronounced a few words wrong"
Cons: "Aircraft arrived slightly late"
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: "convenient flight times"
Cons: "i hated that there are no human beings in sight. i hate all the machines. i hate that you dont employ people. if you want to give jobs to machines then i what use are you? i would much rather pay more and be greeted by a friendly human face. you are all fools and i will seek other airlines in future"
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."

Cons: "Late. As always."

Cons: "Always worry delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Inexpensive flights. Book early to get the best deals."

Cons: "The delays......"
Cons: "Hot air-conditioning"
Cons: "The leg room is deplorable. My knees were continuously hitting the hard seat in front of me and going sideways wasn't even an option. I've never had this happen to me before. I'm a female and 5'9 and this is the least space I've ever had on a flight. So uncomfortable I can't imagine a long flight with this airline, which is good to know because now I will not use them for flying to Malaysia from NYC. Also both flights were delayed by nearly an hour each."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly on this flight - couldn't ask for more! Checking in at Hong Kong airport was great and fast."
Cons: "Not enough directions signage when arrived in KLIA2."
Pros: "We got to the destination."
Cons: "-fee to check bags -changed gate without updating status board and delayed boarding -though none could be found, cabin smelt like vomit -no food included, charged money for water. Yes, water. -constant (and unnecessary) updates on PA system -often attempted to sell AirAsia branded paraphernalia during flight while everyone was trying to sleep -sprayed an unknown substance into the cabin to "sanitize" just before we landed (insecticide?!). We were given a warning literally 10 seconds before they sprayed it."
Pros: "It's good when u pay rm50 something, but later u will have to wait!"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, and of course, around an hour delay."
Cons: "I was not allowed on board due to absence of a transit visa for HongKong (I had few hours transit there before my next flight back to EU). I am allowed to stay up to 48h in HK airport for transit without any visa, I had to quickly find and purchase the flight ticket to HK with another airlines, with them it was no problem to fly to HK for transit. All other few flights with AirAsia were bad as well. We were refused to get water as a complimentary during a log flight from HK to Manila. Every flight was always delayed up to ~1 h."
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."
Pros: "The price I paid was very reasonable."
Cons: "No commets."
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."
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: "Fast & on schedule"
Pros: "it was a very nice and clean plane."
Cons: "They dont give anything complimentary - not even drinks or water!"
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."
