I would like to air my opinion toward this airline. If you are not budget-tight, DO NOT fly Air Asia.
I just had the worst experience with this airline. I agreed with an opinion that they just try to collect as much as money from the customers.
Seat assignment: I don't know that now we can pick our seat upon checking in. My husband traveled from Hat Yai to Bangkok on a delayed flight, as usual. He checked in one hour early and told the ground staff that he would like to sit in the middle part of… Read Full Review

Air Asia are a nightmare to travel with as others point out - amongst other things DON'T TRUST AIR ASIA WEIGHING SCALES - I flew from Chaing Mai to Bangkok with Air Asia, my bag coming in at 16.5 Kg (Air Asia allowance 15 Kg) for which I had to walk around the airport to pay the excess baggage fee before queuing again for check-in (I could have just unpacked 1.5kg clothing and carried it on the plane with me as the chap in front of me had done, and infuriated other passengers both waiting to… Read Full Review

I will never book Air Asia again - they have no customer welfare at all - only goal is collecting as much money as they can from would be customers. They prey on those who are budget conscious and those who are not IT savvy. Air Asia may as well not have any staff on the phones, just automated systems who spew out their rules and regulations over and over again… Read Full Review

Air Asia was not as cheap as they are trying to persuade people they are. We booked 3 single flights with Air Asia from KL-DPS-CGK-KL, there were delays on the last 2 flights. On the 1st one: 1 hour delay, the flight management bothered to inform us 6.5 hours in advance via text.
On the 2nd one, 4 hours delay no infos were given whatsoever. We had only 3 hours of restless sleep in a very expensive Sheraton hotel in KL before having to get up at 6.30 am to catch our flight back to London due to… Read Full Review

Air Asia - Air Rubbish more likely !! -
Massive delays so you either miss your connecting flights or ruin your holidays.
They are suppose to text you any changes but not everyone gets those text messages.
Grumpy staff - definitely underpaid and under experienced.
Planes that stop before taking off !! then change plane...only to stop before taking off again!
One kilo above 15kg you pay !! They dont even offer you a glass of water during the flight!

Flew from Perth WA to KL in March 09 with Air Asia. Had a great flight with no problems at all . Staff were great. The flight left on time an arrived in KL 1/2 hour early so that was good.
We missed our conecting flight home to perth because we didnt allow enough time between flights (our mistake not the airline)
Cant complain cos the flight was so cheap.
We had to buy another ticket and sleep at the airport.
But we survived and are planning another trip in October with the family.(andmaking… Read Full Review

As some other customers mentioned before, I was 5 minutes late because of the traffic jam in Penang. The checked in Time is 45 mins before departure and with just 5 mins late, they refused my checked in. I found Air Asia customer service is very rude and they seemed they did not want to answer my question… Read Full Review

Had a horrible return trip on Air Asia X. On my first flight, halfway through the flight, I found that the comfort kit I had prepaid was missing pieces. Repeated requests to provide the the neck-pillow AND eye mask were "forgotten" until I finally gave up. On my return, I was delayed at the check in counter because my visa was in the old passport - and they needed to have upper management verification. This has never happened in any airport before.
Overall, I felt it is not worth the cheaper… Read Full Review

Forced to phone book rest of trip because no refunds if I cancel first part - no problem , everything booked through ok - BUT because now phone and not online booking trip… Read Full Review

Is it worth flying air asia? It is if you're short of money & have a lot of time to kill but don't expect your trip to be an easy process. This airline could make just a few small changes which would make the experience of flying with them so much better. I've taken a lot of air asia flights & so many of them have been cancelled or delayed without any communication or compensation. I've just recently decided that it's not worth the money you save! So I'm now going to pay the extra for a decent… Read Full Review

So I buy a return flight....they cancel my outward bound flight twice and when I ask for return fair the only want to give me half......greedy horrible customer service..choose a different airline… Read Full Review

Customer Services? In my experience there aren't any. Made my booking ages ago for 5 flights with Air Asia - unfortunately when I log in it says I have no flights booked... hmm. Air Asia did not answer my emails. I've now been trying to ring customer services for 8 days but cannot get through. I'm currently on hold again and have been for 40 minutes and am wondering if there's actually anyone at the call centre or if this is just another waste of time and money… Read Full Review

Air Asia ruined my vacation and cost me my time and boat load of money.
Furthermore, when I tried to reach them for a refund over the phone, I waited on the phone for roughly an hour, before giving up and going to the airport. When I got to the airport I waited in line for an hour and a half trying to get a refund. How did they compensate me for the trouble? They gave me a full refund, when it is really against their policy… Read Full Review

Last Nov 18 We went bac to manila and landed on Clark airport. The immigration guy was an old man, he was so slow in processing the passports. We got caught up late in getting the luggage which I checked in. I flew with other airlines so I thought it safe to check in ur heavy bag. Plus I got perfumes there which are not allowed to be hand carried. I waited for my luggage until I was the only one left with my partner. I thought the last bag looked like mine from afar, but when it was in front of… Read Full Review

So, Air Asia X is starting its long-awaited London service in March 2009. Today's papers are carrying full-page ads saying that there is a special introductory booking offer for 4 days only, at UK £99 one way for the "cheap" seats for flights from March to October. Try booking online and see what happens! After going backwards and forwards through "unavailable" dates I put together a return flight London to KL in April. After adding checked baggage, meals and seat selection this "low cost"… Read Full Review

Overall, it's a good airline is you're looking for a bargain and can overlook the lack of comfort. However, if you want good service and don't want to spend 5 hours trying to contact the call centre....this is not the airline for you… Read Full Review

Good points, nothing, looks cheap, but only until they hit you with all the hidden fees. Bad points, in my opinion bad airline, they try to nickel and dime you at every step. Very poor service. When you book your ticket, they don't notify you of the fact that they don't carry your luggage for free, maximum weight is 15 Kg total and you have to pay $15 for each extra kilo of your luggage… Read Full Review

We have just had 4 flights with Air Asia and were very pleased with them...worth the extra money to book express boarding. Everyone queues up half an hour before but express boarders get in a different queue, board the plane before they let the rest go on...no seats are allocated, it's first in first served so can get a bit hectic. I also booked a hot meal online and it was delicious. Just allow for extra time if connecting to a international flight as they land at the LCCT (low cost carrier… Read Full Review

I have flew by AA many times (ok, despite the poor service because it's cheap) and it would appear that customer satisfaction is not one of the airline's main priority. I find that the airline standards are falling since they have grown from a small little player to become leading airline in the budget segment.
I hope that other airlines would enter the budget segment and give them a more heated competition. This would serve as a major wake-up call to Air Asia for… Read Full Review
