We had seats allocated to us via web checkin in different rows and even though customer service through facebook wouldn't change them, the girl at the checkin counter did. It was a large plane with enough empty seats that a lot of passengers moved to empty seats. My husband is 6' 2" and just had enough room for his knees...

One day before my outward flight I received an email notification that my flight had been cancelled. I checked on SkyScanner and sure enough the flight no longer shows in the schedule. I was given the one option of taking the next flight some 4 hours later. What choice did I have? This meant my onward flight connection at KL...

I took Premium Flat Bed seat on Thai Air Asia X to KIK Osaka recently, and I was happy with their service and had comfortable flight which arrived on time despite the strong typhoon and airport closure just a few hours before landing.

What the hell!? This is the first time in my life to have stewardess walking through the aisles spraying aerosols to kill potential bugs. OMyGosh! The warning to cover your moth and nose didn’t come until they had already it. People were couching, babies started crying. You could see the spray in the air as well. Really not a nice...

All okay - basic airline with cheap fares, get you there no fuss. I am a FF and this is just a base service, no food or anything, we were down the back and when you hit turbulence, better up front of the aircraft..

Very disappointed with Air Asia as a frequent flyer after last experience. Online check-in had errors and glitches which did not allow me to checkin early, charged 40,000 yen at airport. Showed pictures of website glitches and errors, airline does not care or understand. Then I was accidentally tripled charged on my return flight baggage. Had 5 transactions for baggage...

Picked up a super cheap ticket to fly from DMK to Tokyo and following a delay from Bali DPS we got a meal voucher and extra leg room seats. The flight was very empty so we were also able to take advantage of more seats to be able to sleep comfortably by making our own economy flatbed. Don't expect any...
