We traveled from Bangkok to Phuket on another airline and checked in our large bags - 1 each person. We had no issues therefore we did not expect any issues going from Phuket back to Bangkok but we were wrong. Thai Lion allows about 22 lbs per passenger which required me to empty half of the items from the luggage...

I generally try to book Nok Air for domestic flights in Thailand, but this time the connection was not convenient. This was my first booking on Thai Lion Air, a Malaysian no-frills, AirAsia lookalike, so it was a learning curve. I am American working in Laos, and I tried to book online. After wasting time trying with several credit cards,...

Got booked on a Thai Lion flight. Was a bit apprehensive seeing the reviews but the flight was fine. No frills from CNX to DMK on a new 737-900. It was a cheap flight and we needed to buy extra luggage. As the reviews said we tried to pay with a US issued credit card and it wouldn't work. Our...

As a low cost airline, you get what you pay for and the journey was pleasant overall. My only issue is with the booking process, I booked my flight online through a UK tour operator. When booking I received 10kg checked baggage and wanted to pay the extra to increase it to 20kg. I tried directly on the thai lion...

On time and well managed. Slightly surprised with Krabi airport. There were no departure boards in the lounge once you go through security so no way of knowing the status of the flight. Luckily ours was on time. The lounge was full of three flights all leaving at the same time to go to Bangkok but with three different airlines....

THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST AIRLINE COMPANY I EVER FLEW WITH! If you have ANY other option, go for it and DON'T choose Thai lion air! I flew with them 4 times during my stay in Thailand, and this was the worst flight experience in my entire life.I consider myself a veteran travelled,I have militar and civilian skydive experience...

I travelled on the Thai Lion Air on October 2018 . From Bangkok to Phuket. My take off time was 10:55 but maybe due the traffic of the airport or whatever reasons , our flight boarded on time we were on the runway for quite a while before our flight took off at 11:38 instead of 10:55. The flights was...

Thai Lion is airlines under lion grop that based in Thailand. 3 hours non stop flight is quite comfortable and on schedule. They are using 737-900, no in flight entertainment, we have to pay for meals (because it's LCGC), and free 20 kgs baggage. Unfortunately they don't have connecting flight with others Lion Group, if they have it will be...

Took a short flight from Bangkok to Phuket they only allow 10 kilos of luggage it's 20 pounds about four changes of clothes with no opportunity to purchase extra luggage and they over charge for overweight luggage is totally ridiculous better to buy a two tickets on another airline then fly this one
