Pros: Our family had 3 seats together
Cons: RUDE AND NASTY FLIGHT ATENDANTS. THEY SHOULD FIND NEW EMPLOYMENT WITHOUT CUSTOMER CONTACT! !!
Pros: All set up for reasonably comfortable short haul flight and prices ok at similar to Thai Air
Cons: Priced the same, but unlike the wonderful Thai Air (my only other long haul experience) my ticket price and 8hr flight didn't include any food (Thai Air had 2 complimentary meals) and no one told us we could pre order and pay for food, so missed out when it was brought round. They charge to rent blankets and pillows (free on TA) and couldn't even help me with a glass of drinking water other than offering to sell me a bottle but at $10 USD as they didn't have any change (TA provide complimentary bottled water plus comp tea & coffee. Think there needs to be clearer info/advice 're refreshments for customers on long flights like this
Cons: There is no entertainment, and you have to pay for even water, plus if you want to pay with card it is a $10 minimum....
Pros: They got me to my destination
Cons: No legroom, very narrow seating, no meal, expensive and no on board entertainment for a 7 hour flight
Cons: Seats were very uncomfortable and unevenly spaced out for an overnight flight it wasn’t possible to get comfortable to sleep
Cons: The process to check and pay for a bag at the airport was ridiculous. We waited in line to check the bag, found out that since we hadn't paid for it ahead of time, we could get the bag checked but would need to go stand in a new line to pay for it and could not have the bag tag until this was done. Then the new line only had one agent working all of the people who needed to pay for their bags. When we got to the front, we were asked to pay the bag fee with a credit card and the processing fee in cash. Since we were only connecting in Singapore, of course we did not have cash. She could not process the charge, walked us over to a new desk and a new line where they processed the bag charge without the cash fee (how this wasn't done initially, I have no idea) and finally, we were finished with the check in process an hour later.
Pros: There is nothing to say this is a no frills airline and that is what you get. Departure was on time and arrival was also on time. Food on any airline isn’t good at least on airline i fly. The important thing is getting there safely and this airline company does that.
Pros: i did not see any entertainment.
Cons: Everything but the price. Worst customer service ever!!!
Cons: Journey / organisation
Cons: Connecting Time
Pros: Everything was really good
Cons: But the flight left and arrived 30 minn late!
Pros: the crew was flexible enough to allow change of seat to emergency exit after takeoff. Some of the crew are friendly, but not all.
Cons: the seats. I am 5'9 tall and my knees are touching the seat in front of me. Entertainment system needs to be upgraded. Food is so-so. Overall, MH flights, not just this recent one was just what was expected as the bare minimum.
Pros: Economy seats arent different from other airlines. Flight was good in general
Cons: Transfer desk was hard to find for first timers. Send "ask me" staffs to greet on arrival for connecting passengers or info board will help.
Pros: Gotta love seats in business class that lie flat and even give you a little bit of a massage. Superb crew.
Pros: The crew
Cons: The foods could be better not up to the standard of EVA air on economy class
Pros: The crew were very friendly.
Cons: The entertainment selection is really small.
Pros: Food was good. Good leg room. Smooth flight.
Pros: Seat in biz on 380 was comfortable. Crew good not great.
Cons: Food terrible. Seat maintenance not good. Armless and remote didn't work properly. Boarding needed work. No biz priority.
Cons: Cabin crews need to learn how to smile.
Pros: Comfortable seats
Cons: Can improve food.
Cons: The flight delayed for 5 hours and then cancelled. While I understand this happens, it was completely unorganized. They didn't have any plans to try to get people on other flights (passengers ended up organizing this), they provided a hotel but we had to sit there for over an hour while they tried to find one, and when trying to get flights gets the next day, staff was not proactive...the only way people got rebooked was if they told them what to do.
Cons: Dont know why I can not choose seat, it automatically give me a seat next to exit and in the middle, I cannot change it.
Cons: Everything was good except for the food. It was average
Pros: Very clean aircraft, very good service from friendly, helpful crew, entertainment system is very good.
Cons: Didn't like the hot meal much. Preferred that crew gave extra water during meals even without asking. Fruits should have been offered, too.
Cons: Delays made me miss my connecting flight and have to buy a new one, jet star provided no compensation
Cons: Not much
Pros: Newer plane, arrived on time.
Cons: You have to pay extra for everything. Even though it’s an eight hour flight there is no food, drink or entertainment included. They do have screens at the back of each seat but it’s $10 to watch a limited selection. The food and drink are expensive. It gets cold in the plane but you guessed it if you ask for a blanket you have to buy a $20 “comfort pack”. So be prepared!
Pros: Security was super fast. Boarding was straight forward.
Cons: Jetstar baggage policy is, as most know, annoying. 7 kg limit on carry on bags or else you have to pay for extra “weight allowance.” Quite annoying since I can’t very well weigh my bag at home and it really changes nothing. You still bring the bag on the pla e. You just have to pay extra
Cons: Coffee free
Cons: Crowded seats, no entertainment and no provided food or beverages for a 7 hour flight. Air asia does not care about your comfort, they just want your money.
Cons: We were not offered any drinks or food (on a fairly long flight) on over a six hour flight, so obviously I didn't like the service. I doubt I will ever fly on this airline again!
Cons: My flight from Bangkok to Osaka was delayed 1hr, the agency provided me 2 total hours prior between flights however it also required I re-check in (Thai Air Asia to Air Asia X). This resulted in me having to go through immigration and customs merely to go to the departure counter and check in. I missed my flight from Osaka to Honolulu and am stranded for 24hrs until their next flight.
Pros: The service was pretty good.
Cons: Very little legroom. All drinks and food are paid-only and expensive. The food wasn't that good either.
Pros: The flight attendants gave us an extra seat for our baby!
Cons: Cleanliness of the bathroom, seat tables, windows etc.
Pros: The plane didn't crash. The flight left on time.
Cons: The staff were fine but not overly friends. We had to circle the airport over Okinawa for roughly 30 minutes before landing due to flight traffic. When an elderly gentleman stood up to use the rest room, the staff shouted at him to sit down. That could have been handled much better.
Cons: Well, I missed my flight. So that’s why
Pros: Fast flight. Less time laying over
Pros: Flight was quick
Cons: Chairs were small and uncomfortable.
Pros: The food was delicious and of high quality. I enjoyed the entertainment selection. I flew business class. The flight attendants were excellent and gracious. I would fly China Eastern Airlines again.
Cons: Passengers making a connecting flight to Bangkok (BKK) at Nanjing (NKG) were gathered together, escorted through customs, to baggage claim, to the ticketing counter, and back through customs. One of the passenger had to call out each person from their passport. The process took 2 1/2 hours.
Cons: Xiamen reps at KUL didn’t let me board because they said my middle name on boarding pass didn’t match with the name on Chinese transit visa. I got this Chinese transit visa just to transfer because of the airport layout and that part was also didn’t make sense. They didn’t accept my middle “Y” on the boarding pass and it was so much of hassle to argue and finally let me through. Will never fly again on Xiamen.
Cons: Why is my passport number wrong?
Pros: You give me the suck time form shenyang to Fuzhou . I have to pick up all my stuff and chinking all the stuff to shenyang form Fuzhou . And just a 40 minute how I make it ? And I miss my fly to Fuzhou . I have to buy 2 new tickets form shenyang to Fuzhou ! $400 .. I feel so bad very bad ..
Cons: How you guys gonna do for it ?
Pros: Flew business class. Cabin crew was some of the most attentive I have experienced. Food was very good and nicely presented. Pillows could be better, but had two. Same with blankets. One thick and puffy, the other lighter. Nice for temperature regulation.
Cons: First leg lax - Tao delayed almost 3 hours. Fortunately the 2nd leg was delayed 1.5 hours. 3rd leg on this itinerary was also delayed, I could have made the flight, but they gave my seat away. It was a bit of a Charlie Foxtrot rearranging flights and overnighting Hotel. 2.5 hours. A supervisor was needed to sort it all out. We will see if the above was bad circumstances or not. I run the same itinerary in reverse on the way home in a week.
Pros: Very responsible and kind cabin crew. We were delayed by maybe 8-10 hours because of weather. The crew would have to work all night, but were very kind about the situation.
Cons: Short flight; so there was no real in-flight entertainment. That's really alright though.
Pros: The crew was amazing. The food was pretty good as well.
Cons: Entertainment could have been better. The entire 12 hour flight from Los Angeles to Beijing, the audio on the entertainment system did not work. It was very unfortunate.
Cons: They should notify the customers that if Transit time is more than 24 hrs, they can't check in to the next leg flight, therefore they have to take their luggage
Pros: The crew was “matter of fact”.
Pros: Everything smooth and comfortable
Cons: The in flight entertainment system was very limited and of no interest
Cons: Best flight ever all time
Pros: Good movies make for a quick trip
Cons: Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times

Cons: had 6 hours connection and urumchi and they did not have any lounges abd no internet in there
Pros: very Good service
Cons: Every thing perfect, I’m so happy with the service.
Pros: Crew very friendly.
Cons: There was no place for me to enter in dietary restrictions to get a special meal, so they were not prepared for a meal I could eat.
Pros: Crew was good and seats were ok.
Cons: More room but we all know space is limited. Food can be improved though
Pros: Crew was amazing
Cons: To check out baggage it was very long try to make it short
Pros: Very nice purser and her crew. Accomodating. Love the safety video!
Cons: Different option other than hot sandwiches for mid flight snack
Cons: PAL is literally never on time. The terminal process was absurd - 300 person line to check in and print a boarding pass. Then it was 1hr late to boars and then >90 mins waiting on the tarmac. Just a terrible on-time performance and inconvenient process that is typical of PAL
Pros: The steward and stewardess were very nice.
Cons: The plane was late, making a long day much longer. Worse still, I waited another 30 minutes for the luggage, making it almost 2 hours later before I got to the hotel.
Pros: Restroom was kept clean throughout the flight which impressed me
Cons: Food was some of the worst airline food I’ve had. I had the vegetarian options and the vegetables were very bland and over cooked. I usually like airplane food.
Pros: Friendly and attentive flight attendants.
Cons: Food and quality of entertainment screen for economy.
Pros: The flight
Cons: Nothing everything was good
Cons: It would be better if it was on time
Pros: The crew was great as usual. The food was good
Cons: Better seats - really uncomfortable with a packed plane and wailing infants even when seated quite a few rows away.
Pros: Foods. Drinks. Entertainment.
Cons: Nothing. Everything’s so perfect!
Cons: Cramped seats, no leg room, horrible food, stupid COLD snack!
Pros: Everything, perfect flight
Pros: Excellent service
Cons: More tasty snacks throughout the flight
Cons: Ground staff at the airport, like wheel chair workers, others were rude. I thought that Thai people are humble, but my experience with them was horrible. I will advice not to travel thru Thailand.
Pros: Crew food excellent
Cons: Could not get comfortable in the seats
Pros: Boarding went great, much appreciated that they specifically invited elderly passengers for early boarding. Crew was efficient but friendly and attentive.
Cons: Economy seats aren't so great on any carrier.
Pros: Crew service were good and kindness between FRA to BKK.
Cons: Thai food instead of Nepalese Curry. Thai food is the best.
Pros: The check-in staff at SGN domestic were efficient in getting us on to our connecting flight despite the late arrival from Sydney.
Cons: Communication. Our plane had a malfunction at Sydney which caused a delay. After it was repaired, we are then told of further delays due to the pilot now running out of hours, delays in sourcing a new pilot, and then having to resupply all the catering. 26 hour delay.
Pros: Boarding was quick and Flight was Smooth
Cons: Food basic,Crew not so friendly.Flight left 15 minutes late.
Pros: Everything, from the check in process, to the flight itself.
Cons: Nothing to eat, except a cup of juice or water.
Pros: The seat was comfortable and the food was good
Cons: My flight was delayed but general was good I enjoyed the flight.
Pros: Quick flight
Cons: Food was terrible
Cons: Meal was terrible
Pros: Fast boarding
Cons: Food is low quality. Nothing special.
Cons: Too cold in the aircraft !! So so cold
Cons: Cabin temperature was very cold
Pros: The price! Efficient and friendly service. If you don't need to be fed every 4 hours, don't need onboard entertainment and can handle the slightly less legroom than standard carriers then AirAsiaX is highly recommended
Cons: You get what you pay for, or in the case of budget carriers you don't get what you don't pay for. AirAsiaX is no frills but that said it is efficient and gets you where you want to go for the lowest prices around. The meal you receive with the 'bag upgrade' pack is ok but nothing special.
Pros: Quick boarding
Cons: The air steward and stewardess were so noisy throughout the flight. I stood at the last row where it was close to where they sat and toilet. They took non stop and laughed literally loud. can you imagine the other way round - I am chatting loudly in the midnight and they are trying to get some sleep? They just didn't have professional mannerisms and service awareness.
Cons: Seats were very uncomfortable and unevenly spaced out for an overnight flight it wasn’t possible to get comfortable to sleep
Cons: Had layovers in Malaysia and ended up being charged $145 extra dollars because of a checked baggage (which was supposed to be included in our ticket already)
Pros: Comfortable Seats in premium economy
Cons: No entertainment 11 hours KL to Auckland and no movies!! Should have made up time leaving Coolangatta and still able to land on time in Auckland - people missed connections. Not good enough when they had power to go a little faster but they would rather inconvenience a number of people than spend a little more on fuel to make up time .
Cons: Unfair policy of no outside food, treating its customers in a captive state; cabin is dirty with little cleaning work done. Won't fly if it were not cheap.
Cons: I need wheelchair but your crew an Indian Lady I think in the check -in counter did not give me wheelchair from Singapore. She said but in Mla she assigned wheel chair but when in Manila they said Scoot did not assigned wheelchair inmy ticket. I hate you Scoot and I will never take scoot again in any of my up coming trips
Cons: We were given just one very small water about 150ml and told we have to pay if we need more water. Restriction on providing drinking water in Business class seems unfair. Please reconsider
Cons: Boarding process Delayed flight
Cons: Flight crew’s attitude. The fact that there was no overhead space and the crew didn’t Check additional bags. Had to stove the bags u def the seat and there was no room to stretch my legs. The flight crew had the most pathetic attitude and was rude beyond imagination.
