no hidden clause for baggage, my family of 3 pax, we only were allowed 35kg of checked luggage.
Checkin at KLIA a breeze. MH Regional Lounge ex KUL a fantastic pit stop for those on the go and shuttle flights conveniently departing from the MTB at KLIA, making the journey extremely efficient. Ground handling team proactive in handling passengers with need of assistance. Coordinated well with aircraft team ahead of main boarding party. Seated at 7F and saw the care and attention paid by luggage loading team - even attending to a piece of luggage that appeared damaged before loading it onboard. Crew are naturally kind and personable - and flight deck announcements professionally made with clarity. Flight handling smooth, perfect touchdown in SIN.

Pros: "Whilst I realise this is an Asian airline the warm roll was very doughy & tasteless & the breakfast wasn't at all good."

Pros: "The flight was quick and the service was good."

It was a very disappointing result. I couldn't automatically board the plane on the phone at all. I went to the counter the first time, and the person at the counter told me that I couldn't board the plane! Very unsatisfactory and a waste of our time now I would like to refund my ticket!!!! Very irresponsible!!
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and very friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing really. For a no-frills flight, it was a great value"

Pros: "correct priority of boarding respected luggage handling very fast"
Cons: "quality of food"
Cons: "Never Kiwi.com again! Thailand to Indonesia both flights on AirAsia but they would not book my bag to final destination. In Kuala Lumpur had to go through customs (LUCKILY! no visa required) get my bag, go security line again, check bag again. Took over 2hrs stressed if I would make my flight."
Cons: "I didn’t have any food so am unable to comment on this"
Cons: "this is the first international flight that charges you money for everything on board. hungry? purchase food. thirsty? pay for the water as well. even for the check-in luggage, you have to pay. so pay a little more and book a nicer-better airline. the crew is not professional and does not understand how to talk to clients properly. I am well aware of the fact that clients are often over demanding in the services they are being provided and rarely appreciative of the crew that does everything to make your journey pleasant. However on all the four Airasia flights from Delhi Kuala Lumpur Phuket, the overall attitude of the crew members was not nice."

Pros: "Very understanding and helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Such a poor on time record"

Cons: "I arrived 3AM at KKIA, expected boarding time is 5.30AM but check-in counters are not open until past 4AM. Already 4.30AM but there was still only 1 person at the counter. Not enough instructions for self-service but no one on the floor to assist people. Arrived at my gate 15mins before boarding time. At the gate, they put up both TPE and HKG boarding information which confused the passengers."
Pros: "Efficient boarding....took off early in both directions!"
Pros: "On time (early on the return leg). Interesting usage of onboard wifi to deliver inflight entertainment. The choices of the channels was mediocre. Nevertheless, a good start."
Cons: "Same food (on return leg) with no other choices choice with the value pack add-on. Pasta was overcooked."
Cons: "Aircraft arrived slightly late"
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: "ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS LATE Aaaarrrggghhhh!"
Pros: "On time boarding ...very efficient"

Cons: "constant flight delays"
Cons: "Late flight, not enough announcements"
Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Nothing...everything was perfect!"
Pros: "The crew were very pleasant... they were efficient and organised, modern, smart and 'on it' when necessary. I didn't eat as flights were short... no entertainment although they do have Rokki wifi to watch stuff on phones and tablets... I didn't bother though. Boarding was slick... time lost due to late departure was largely recovered in flight... Aircraft was clean and comfortable. Will definitely use as my airline of choice when travelling in the area..."
Cons: "Too hot - needed cooler air"
Cons: "Badly managed check-in queue even for online checked passengers doing bag drop - 3 hours before departure at NAIA 3. There was no announcement from airline staff or anyone for that matter at the gate that the plane will be delayed. Plane departed 2 hours late and sitting in the tarmac with poor cooling inside the plane. Badly managed budget airline."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. We missed our connecting flight and the next flight wouldn't be until the next day. Customer service was ridiculously slow."
Pros: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."
Cons: "Cabin crew totally forget their priority task which is to Ensure the comfort of passenger. Instead everyone is so focus on retail as well as F&B add on sales."
Cons: "Delay delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
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."
Cons: "No family priority boarding."
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: "Surprised to see t&Co coffee is serve, good n keep it up Flight is early 20mins on reaching kl! Very good"
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: "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: "In the US most recognize Southwest Airlines as an efficient low-cost carrier. AirAsia is all that with nice aircraft AND comfortable assigned seats."
Cons: "If your going to check a bag you can do it easily at the airport and you will pay per pound/kilo. If you know the approximate weight you can do it in advance on-line and save time. Example: 40 kilos /80 lbs was $40 usd."
Cons: "Boarding should improve. Other airports board Hot Seats first."
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: "Smiling srewardess"
Cons: "IF MY BAGGAGE WASNT LOST"
Pros: "Good boarding"
Cons: "Seat pitch it's very tight"
Cons: "Excellent flight. No complaints, good boarding, friendly crew"
Pros: "Great flight. Full but very good boarding process. Timely departure. Smooth flight and timely arrival."
Pros: "Competitive price,"
Cons: "Adverised price include proccessing fee. 7kg carry on stingy"
Pros: "Plane was 1h late to take off but on time at landing"
Cons: "No power plug, no English magazine, no phone allowed (even in flight mode) for a 4 hours flight. So “entertainment” deserves 2 star only. As a couple travelling together, we were not seated together, which is very annoying (that was the case for other passengers too) even though a lot of single seats were empty in the plane (crew refused to let us swap places). That’s a 2 star for the crew. Food and beverage is pay only, and was real bad, that is the 1 star for food."
Pros: "I liked everything except"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Cabin Crew are helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Airasia always delay"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was kind of a mess and slightly stressful. The seats are tiny. Very uncomfortable for this 5’10” girl. Should give free drinks and snacks rather than charging for everything."
Pros: "It’s worth the money."
Cons: "Small flight, no entertainment or food."
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "The cheapness of the flight and the food."
Pros: "They were nice to let me on when I was hurrying through security"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "They wouldn't let us on the flight, even though we applied for a Vietnam passport. They were rude and I. Addition to ruining my vacation, they didn't accredit me my money for another flight."
Pros: "Luck of information about baggage which cost me about more than the ticket and more than $100. In my point of view, all of the traveller should get laggage allowances for international. I have never experienced laggage allowances for international flights. Very very disappointed!!!"
Cons: "Luck of information about baggage which cost me about more than the ticket and more than $100. In my point of view, all of the traveller should get laggage allowances for international. I have never experienced laggage allowances for international flights. Very very disappointed!!!"
Pros: "Small plane with no complementary food, snacks or drinks. Didn’t mine since it was a short flight."
Pros: "We arrived"
Cons: "Started with booking, a package includes seats but the seats included we're all full,of i.e. need to pay more again.but100 Dollar for credit card booking? They are crazy! Check-infamily with just computers is terrible, didn't worked properly. Included food in package but can't choose, both legs the same food. Baggage damaged. Long walk in DMK to transfer, inefficient. Overall just a shitty experience!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and nice. The boarding process was orderly and the plane was clean and modern."
Cons: "Airasia is a budget carrier which will nickel and dime you. Carrie-on lugguage is very restrict on weight. The regular seat have little legroom. So it won’t be comfortable to anyone with size. Which leave leaves you with their HOT SEAT option. Even on international flight everything is al la carte, no free soft drinks. The price of checked lugguage can increase if not purchased at the time of booking. If you can jump though their hoops maybe no issue for you."
Cons: "The plane was late 1 hr and it was already after midnight. We asked the baby stroller to waiting for us when exiting the plane door but they sent it to the belt so we had to carry 2 little boys on our hands thru the entire visa and passport control process while they are sleeping! To add on that our suitcase arrives torn! Really depressing service."
Pros: "Boarding time was accurate ."
Cons: "One of the crew member was very hard and never smile at all, and not polite also."
Pros: "One go crew members was very roude and her face very hard , never smile at all."
Pros: "THE LEATHER SEATING."
Cons: "NOT MUCH CABIN SPACE.....HAD TO SQUEEZE MY BAG IN BECAUSE EVERYONE HAD LEFT ME VERY LITTLE ROOM."
Cons: "Worst seat that i've ever had. At 5'6", i rarely have trouble with leg room or sleeping - not so on this flight. Seats packed so tight it was impossible to get comfortable. Flight attendants never offered water or any service on a 5 hour flight. When we asked for water, they asked for money... This takes the idea of no frills to the extreme."
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."
Pros: "Food was excellent and price for food was reasonable"
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"
Pros: "I booked 2 seats together by the window, and instead got two aisle seats. They would not reseat us at check in even though there was plenty of room on the flight. Mediocre food."
Pros: "AirAsia is cheap and not cheerful. You only get the cheap fare if you dont check on luggage."
Cons: "Rio offs on luggage."
Pros: "Very attentive crew, good food, on time arrival."
Cons: "Do not even give you water"
Pros: "What more can you ask for? The flight was on time and seats were decent at good price. Flight staff personally took us to boarding gate to ensure we got on the flight (because we transited in Bangkok to HK) They didn't check the weight of carry on luggage so it was good!"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable seats and enough room for an airline that isn't too pricey. I received food even on my short flights."
Cons: "Charged us money for luggage in kind of s random way. Decided to weigh just one bag at the gate for some reason and they were not clear in explaining to us why certain things were being charged and why one bag and not another"
Cons: "This flight has no drink or food at all."
Pros: "The agents came and helped us get through the lines at Krabi Airport. Since Thai airports are awful, and never have enough staff, and don't manage queues, it was good that the agents came to help us cut in front of other poor souls who were waiting for later flights."
Cons: "The seat I was as in hardly fit my legs. As soon as the lady in front of my leaned her chair back, my knees were painfully crushed. I'm thin, and only 183 cm tall, which is perfectly average. It's a crime that Air Asia can't even provide me a seat that fits me."
Pros: "We landed safely."
Cons: "They charge for everything! Make sure you get to the airport early. The counter to pay for the baggage was backed up."
Pros: "The line didn't take that long."
Cons: "The 7kg weight allowance is ridiculous, it's a clear ploy to grab more money for add-ons, when it should be considered below the minimum amount a reasonable one-bag traveller would bring with them. If you add a laptop, you get a free additional 3kg. Can someone please explain the logic of that? The airplane cabin was freezing cold the whole flight, colder than the older, smaller plane I took on the previous flight. If the Boeing 777 is so advanced, why is the atmosphere less comfortable? To add insult to injury, I was unable to bring adequate warm clothes for my flight to a tropical destination because of the low weight allowance. Lightweight travelers don't want to check bags because of the additional hassle and potential for lost luggage (not to mention the fees). They wear backpacks small enough to fit into the overhead compartment, but getting under the ridiculous 6kg limit means eliminating anything extraneous. 9 or 10kg is more reasonable."
Cons: "They charged me USD 36 to check in one bag up to 15kg, although it clearly stated on their website that my flight from Ho Chi Minh to Bangkok would cost USD 18 up to 20kg. After arguing with the manager, and then having to call AirAsia Thailand, I realized they were both incompetent and rude. Kayak never allowed the option to pay for baggage when I booked the flight, and AirAsia didn't believe me and wouldn't even respect their online fee chart. I will never fly AirAsia again, and I will also dispute the charge with my credit card company, as it is unprofessional if not illegal."
Cons: "I bougt very expensive ticket and I had to pay 2500 THB for my luggage!!!!!/it was 20 kg luggage!!/"
Pros: "The only good was landing safely"
Cons: "Air Asia is the worst! I had no idea it was a budget airline, but if low price is what you're after don't fall for the price of air Asia flights, they charge extra for a bag over the weight limit...which is 10kg lesser than competing airlines weight limits, and also any food or drink you have to pay for, and also if You are not at the front of the plane be prepared to have other choices in food or drink because they run out of the good stuff that everyone is getting, but even the good stuff is extremely poor"
Pros: "They were able to get us on to the plane even though we were extremely late. The Customer Service Rep that helped us with our bags in Krabi was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "An exorbitant amount for bags and our luggage didn't even make it on the the flight."
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."
Pros: "You get what you pay for"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room. I'm 5'9 so I know I'm tall, but I manage on normal flights perfectly fine. The seats lean forward so in the upright position you feel as if you are falling forward. Terrible comfort but it was only an hour flight so I survived. Anything longer than the hour from Phuket to Phi Phi, I would never fly this airline. Like I said, you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Getting on board plane."
Cons: "There was a 40 minute delay. No information for other passengers for flight after us. So hence chaos for our flight."
Pros: "The extra baggage fee $ 14.00+ was only negative surprise. I will book flights with them again."
Pros: "Very late flight with no explanation. Boarding was crazy. Free for all."
Pros: "You get a cheap fare."
Cons: "You pay more than the ticket for each piece of check in, for each leg, which has a nominal weight limit of 15kg. No outside food or drink. Tiny seats, which for a 6' male, had severe legroom issues with a bottle of water in the seat pocket."
Pros: "I got to the airport with my wife and when I checked our two average sized suitcases I was told it would cost an additional 6000 baht - even though I had already paid for one suitcase per ticket. The check in person was helpful but I couldn't find my proof of payment so my wife and I spent some frantic minutes pulling weight out of our bags and into our carry on finally getting the price down to 3800 baht. I've since found my proof of payment and hope that Air Asia will reimburse me but the whole exercise sucked hugely."
