Thai Smile must be the only airline in the world that still doesn’t allow mobiles and iPads to be used during taxi, takeoff and landing. No inflight service due to COVID but a little snack and water handed out as we left the plane. I also like the deplaning by row, I wish more airlines did this
Khuyết điểm: "We got drinking water after landing. Would be better to provide some snacks on the way out."
Ưu: "The crew was the most expert crew I have seen. I fly thousands of miles every year. Their alertness to safety was unprecedented for me. In Yangon the counter personnel were equally excellent, safety-conscious and personable."
Khuyết điểm: "It would be really nice not to have to board a bus in BKK to be shuttled to my next flight."
Khuyết điểm: "I understand that the crew was probably tired, but I believe they can be friendlier."
Ưu: "Crew are efficient and friendly"
Khuyết điểm: "Portion of food could have been slightly bigger"
Khuyết điểm: "Since no one was in first class and I was in the first row not allowing me to use the restroom Up front when there was a long line in the back seemed rude"
Ưu: "Good meal"
Khuyết điểm: "Check in and luggage drop for share code with Thai airways. It is not clear instruction when booking with Thai airways. We lost time with Thai airways but finally need to drop the luggage at Thai smil counter."

Khuyết điểm: "The on board snack isn’t great."
Khuyết điểm: "We did not receive any information as to why our flight was late."
Ưu: "Our train from Chiang Mai was 2 hrs late. Our taxi driver sped us as fast as he could, but we had only 15 min from check in to the airplane take off. The counter personnel were so helpful in calling the gate for permission to board. We ran across the airport and made it thanks to Thai Smile staff."
Khuyết điểm: "Vegetarian food option"
Ưu: "Boarding was super fast and efficient. For a 1,5 hour flight, we were given food and drinks. Can’t find that in the US."
Khuyết điểm: "Loved everything"
Ưu: "Not Allowed to read on my kindle in airplane mode. Made for dry boring and long flight!!!"
Ưu: "Overall service including f Meals and drinks provided on flight and the ground handling and air crew all excellent."
Khuyết điểm: "None."
Khuyết điểm: "Delay"
Ưu: "For a budget friendly airline you can't go wrong with Thai Smile. they were on time, food was provided free, staff was friendly."
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing."
Ưu: "Flew out of BKK versus other airport in Bangkok. Easier to connect to international flights. Good service and frequent flights"
Khuyết điểm: "They have sandwiches on the flights but they weren’t the best quality, I didn’t like what they gave out. We had roaches next to us crawling up the wall on our last flight, ended up finding some food Trash under our seat that was missed. not pleasant."
Ưu: "friendly, professional crew"
Ưu: "I would highly recommend flying with this airline. It was a very efficient process and the staff was not only helpful but very nice."
Khuyết điểm: "I had a fracture in my leg several days prior to my trip so had to cancal all. My thai smile tickets were booked with vayama. They r the only suppliers whom declined my request for free cancaltion or even freeze our tickets."
Khuyết điểm: "There's only one down side of this flight. The Lucknow international airport terminal is downright embarrassing. There are four or five desks to handle passport control. That's fine, but none has a label on it as to who should be at which. NonIndians should go to the extreme left one. Then they have one xray machine that all arrivals have to put their carry-ons through while the previous flight is trying to put all their heavy luggage (they are most likely all male workers coming from the Gulf). Then there is a small, rickety belt with everyone crowded around for the luggage. Well, there are two belts, but only one is functional. And to top it off, most of the luggage carts have at least one broken wheel! Amazing and embarrassing when arriving from any terminal almost anywhere! Lucknow, you have a lovely domestic terminal, wake up and build an international one! Shurum ki bat ha!"
Ưu: "Quick flight"
Khuyết điểm: "40 minute delay"
Ưu: "Awesome service, great staff, amazing trip"
Khuyết điểm: "I don't want to recommend to others to use this flight following reasons: (1) I can't use Thai lounge with star alliance gold card. (2) Thai air sold the Ticket, but boarding ticket issued by Thai smile. (3) a ground staff ( reissue staff)is unfriendly particularly those who is at Thai office, airport. (4)Thai smile is a low cost air line. So Thai air shouldn't sell this kind of ticket It hurts fame of Thai airs hospitality."

Khuyết điểm: "plane was 30- 45 minutes late leaving BKK and about 20 minutes late leaving KK"
Lead flight attendant was rude and not helpful. Very unprofessional.
boarding wheelchair flyer poorly done
Purchased additional baggage and the flight was canceled due to covid. When they rebooked us they didn’t carry over the extra baggage. They wanted to charge 3x the original ticket price for “added” weight… 6000 bhat for an additional 15kilo (which would of been easily covered by what we originally booked) took nearly 2 hours to work out and they only let us check in minutes before our flight boarded. Very unhappy.
Khuyết điểm: "I wasn't able to go on this flight, or on the trip at all due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and the airline has not responded to my request for a refund or credit yet."
Ưu: "We boarded and took off early"
Khuyết điểm: "A little bit bigger free water bottle"
Khuyết điểm: "The charge for extra baggage was three times the cost of my ticket. Outrageous!"
Ưu: "Everything was ok"
Khuyết điểm: "It left late"
Ưu: "The flight itself was OK."
Khuyết điểm: "I had to check a bag. My friend, who is Thai, Called the airline and was given the price of 450 baht to check a bag. I called about an hour after that to actually pay for checking a bag and they told me that it was 1225 baht ($41). The other person had made a mistake and that the price was 1225 if I want to ship my bag. When I asked them About the discrepancy in price, the man was rude and told me that The other person had made a mistake and that the price was 1225 if I want to ship my bag. I had to pay the high price because I had no other way to get my bag to Phuket. Afterwards someone I met told me that the price for the Westerners is always higher but three times the price is outrageous and I will never fly with that airline again."
Ưu: "Cheap flight!"
Khuyết điểm: "Damage to luggage and their compensation is a pittance. Took the legs off my suitcase and gave me USD $6. The flight was very uncomfortable as AC is not used until up in the air, so we boarded and sat in 25C+ until we were airborne."
Khuyết điểm: "The speakers were too loud and the hostess can’t do anything about it."
Ưu: "The seat was comfortable and easy to use."
Khuyết điểm: "It was a very brief flight so it didn’t leave much for entertainment or food. The staff were a little abrupt, but mostly kind. For a couple of hours, it was okay!"
Khuyết điểm: "Luggage fees are exorbitant! $100 for two suitcases of 20 kilos."
Ưu: "I booked a flight and feet combo and the whole experience was well organized"

Khuyết điểm: "Nothing"
Ưu: "Boarding was fast and the flight was comfortable."
Khuyết điểm: "We were delayed about 15 minutes, but they didn't say anything it just happened."
Ưu: "The seats were nice and boarding was quick."
Khuyết điểm: "The flight was a bit delayed, but not by much."
Ưu: "Kind crew."
Khuyết điểm: "Steep ascent with rapid pressure change, not gradual. Hot plane. Rough landing."
Khuyết điểm: "It would be nice if they gave us a little snack."
Ưu: "Friendly and easy flight. Good value for money."
Khuyết điểm: "As part of fly-n-ferry, the boat service was very poor - the worst I’ve been on in Thailand"

Ưu: "Seat was fairly comfortable"
Khuyết điểm: "The leg room was really small"
Khuyết điểm: "No explanation why a long delay and change of gate at DM airport"
Ưu: "The plane appeared clean, and they gave us complimentary small bottles of water."
Khuyết điểm: "They wouldn't allow me to eat some dried banana chips I had purchased at a shop outside the airport. I think they only wanted you to eat snacks purchased on the flight. Also, they required everyone to turn all electronic devices completely off during take-off, ascent, descent, and landing. They wouldn't allow you to use them even in airplane mode for some reason, despite most other airlines worldwide allowing airplane mode throughout the entire flight."
Khuyết điểm: "The service upon arriving to the airport was absolutely atrocious. We attempted to check in and the woman behind the counter gave us a huge problem. When I booked, I must have put the ticket under Susie instead of Susanne and despite showing her my passport she said I was going to be charged 800 baht to fix my name. It took two separate supervisors for them to realize that the passport number I booked with was in fact the same passport number I was presenting to them. I also wanted to check a piece of luggage and had to go to a different counter, waiting on another line to pay for the luggage. Not one person explained that upon landing in Bangkok for my layover that I would need to take my luggage off of the carousel and then repeat the process I did at the Chiang Mai Airport. It baffles me that they have no organization because prior to getting up to the counter, 4 people were clearly unhappy with the customer service. I would not recommend this airline company to anyone, in fact I would advise that people wouldn’t use it."
Khuyết điểm: "Missing an arm seat"
Ưu: "Nok air is a nice airline"

Khuyết điểm: "Just serve water"

Khuyết điểm: "Staff no help me"
Ưu: "Cheap and very cheerful. Great airline at great prices. Highly recommend"
Khuyết điểm: "First of all the flight was delayed, it's OK it happens. What we didn't like was having the boarder time be delayed on top of the delayed flight. Then we we finally arrived at our destination we had to wait for 10 minutes for a second set of busses to arrive. Then once we get into a building we have to walk up a flight of stairs with our suit cases. I was traveling with my 72 year old mother. Not impressed. It's one thing to delay flights it's another to make your passengers go through hoops to get to their destination."
Khuyết điểm: "This flight was 2 hours late"
Khuyết điểm: "Being charged an extra 5700 baht for weight!!! No warning of any possible charges. What is going on?"
Ưu: "Staff on plane was excellent"
Khuyết điểm: "Gate staff boarded everyone at the same time. They ignored priority boarding customers who had paid to be boarded first."

Khuyết điểm: "Delayed 2 hours"
Ưu: "The flight arrived 20 earlier than scheduled."
Khuyết điểm: "We arrived 2 hours before flight, long immigration line and made it to counter for boarding passes 40 min early and they wouldn't let us on our flight, or give us a refund. Their next flight (3 hours later) cost double what we paid for our tickets. horrible experience"
Ưu: "Left on time and arrived early....No frills friendly service in brand new planes."
Ưu: "Staff was friendly. I wish you offered blankets in the aircraft because it was freezing!"
Ưu: "Excellent flight on a Q400 aircraft. Seating adequate for that type of plane and distance. Water and a small snack were offered to all. Departure from the gate on time, but 25 minutes taxiing, meaning arrival almost 10 minutes late. This is still "on time" as far as I am concerned. Staff very professional at all stages of the trip. Recommended."
Khuyết điểm: "DMK Airport is getting very crowded, even mid-week. I came from SGN on Nok Air. It took over an hour to get to the connecting, domestic gate. No signs in the International Terminal showing where the Domestic Terminal is, they are just supposing that everybody knows!"
Landing to Hanoi in time Seat not reclining -Cabin design very dull
Khuyết điểm: "They do not necessarily seat minor children with their parents. Much bigger fight to get them to seat families together, which should be standard practice in the age of COVID. Below average legroom. Much less than in America and elsewhere."
Khuyết điểm: "Always the same problem - not enough leg room."
Ưu: "Relatively inexpensive and on time."
Khuyết điểm: "Absolutely no customer support. No one to call or contact. In theory, they have a contact through Facebook but no one picks up. If you book through a major third party agency, you cannot log onto their system to make changes like add baggage. At the airport, they told me the only way to ask them is to come to the airport. How environmentally unfriendly and generally inconvenient. Especially in these days where such online services should be easy."
Khuyết điểm: "On time. Free internet in flight. Good value for a low cost airline."
Khuyết điểm: "Know that everything is charged in flight and the bag at check in , been traveling the same bag all over the world and I had to check in my backpack and extra high cost"
Khuyết điểm: "A bit more space. Knees were right up against seat in front of me."
Ưu: "Sue to delyaed flights by Thai airways, they didnt accomodate me even for another flight booked y them"
Ưu: "I like the price and the short lenght of time to it took."
Khuyết điểm: "Can think of anything at this time."
Khuyết điểm: "A seat that did not jolt and move around. Legroom seat on offer for free as no one had them."
Khuyết điểm: "It just does not make any sense to me that I would need to leave the airport, collect my piece of luggage, to then go back on the boarding pass/baggage kiosk, to then get on a larger line to drop off my luggage to then go to another desk where I needed to take a number to pay for my suitcase. I’ve traveled all over the world and have never experienced anything like this before."
Khuyết điểm: "25 min delay departure."
Ưu: "Seats are very comfortable, speedy boarding and in flight service very quick"
Khuyết điểm: "Ran out of wine!"
Ưu: "On time speedy boarding food always good rice chicken curry."
Ưu: "The crew was very friendly"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "everything ok just an hour flight"
Khuyết điểm: "airport queues for bag check out the door"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Pleasant inflight experiences."
Khuyết điểm: "Last minute gate change resulted in flight being delayed"
Khuyết điểm: "Realy expensive"
Ưu: "No complementary foods, snacks or drinks offered. No problem since a short flight."
Ưu: "Very delayed first segment. Fortunately the second segment was more delayed! No announcements about the delays."
Khuyết điểm: "My knees were touching the seat ahead of me although the seat was upright. Any recline would have been unbearable & painful."
Ưu: "Polite crew"
Khuyết điểm: "Check in at the airport was an ‘experience’. For first time travellers here make sure you go straight through security. A lot of pushing and queue jumpin so stand your ground! Flight was slightly delayed. No electronic devises could be used but hey, the flight from Bangkok is only 1hr."
Ưu: "AIR conditioned cabin while boarding= no sweat.."
Khuyết điểm: "Plane arrived from Bangkok late so our flight was late. No notice given. Lithium battery packs are allowed on board but not in checked baggage. Bag security used to be before check in but ate not in BKK DM. Huge hassle trying to get battery pack back when back at.DM. ugly."
Ưu: "Fairly good value (although not particularly low fare)"
Khuyết điểm: "Poor leg room and slow boarding by bus. Flight was late and no updates given."
Ưu: "THE LEATHER SEATING."
Khuyết điểm: "NOT MUCH CABIN SPACE.....HAD TO SQUEEZE MY BAG IN BECAUSE EVERYONE HAD LEFT ME VERY LITTLE ROOM."
Ưu: "Seats were comfortable enough for a domestic flight."
Khuyết điểm: "I realize that the crew is just doing their job but AirAsia in general has pretty backwards policies in comparison to most airlines. The crew will come by and ensure your device is in airplane mode. I even had one member on an extremely empty flight wake me up mid-flight, and ask me to show that I had my seatbelt on (I had a blanket on). About two minutes later, the seatbelt sign was off again. I realize there's no reason to be frustrated with a crew as they're just doing their job, but the airline as a whole is a little archaic and very strict."
Ưu: "Very poor. Service ."
Ưu: "Boarding was quick and no issues with staff"
Khuyết điểm: "Seats are jammed together so close unless you are under 5'5" there is no room at all. Not to mention they fill the pockets with 6 huge magazines. I'm 6' tall and I got the last seat on the plane; the seat doesn't recline at all so when people in front of me reclined their seat I had even less space. I can't say I will ever fly this airline again. It's very disappointing that there is no comfort at all in a seat. My legs were cramped and I couldn't even stretch them under the seat because my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me. In two hours my legs were totally numb."
Ưu: "The flight itself was very reasonably priced."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Crew were nice."
Khuyết điểm: "Everything else sucked."
Khuyết điểm: "Even for a reduced fare, I've never been on any other airline that even makes you pay for water. I've flown many other reduced fare lines that still offer you a beverage and a small snack, even if only peanuts or pretzels. That this flight offers no beverage or food without payment is disappointing."
Ưu: "Flight was on time"
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Khuyết điểm: "Long line to check in and people not polite."
Khuyết điểm: "There were many additional charges for luggages. The most annoying thing for me is their seat assignments. For couples who bought tickets together, seats were assigned at different locations even though the flights were not full. This happened on all four flight segments for us. And it was not just to us. It happened to many other people on our flights. When I asked at the check-in counter at Singapore airport to change the seat assignments, the agent lied to me that there are no other seats available. In reality, there were many empty seats on all our flight segments."
Ưu: "No entertainment available on my flight. Only magazines."
Khuyết điểm: "Good was terrible, even though looked great on pictures on the website when I placed the order. Boarding system was inefficient and caused the flight leaving late. Seats are small and cheap made (even though we bought economy comfort seats). Flight attendants weren't friendly, poor manners. Won't recommend them at all, won't fly them again for sure,"
Ưu: "Good food warm service"
Khuyết điểm: "Luggage fee should be more clear when booking"
Khuyết điểm: "MY FAULT TOTALLY. I forgot to order vegetarian food, offer one meatless and one meat entree perhaps."
Ưu: "Punctual and no issues"
Ưu: "Plane ride was adverage"
Khuyết điểm: "Squished buss ride to plane, had to pay for one checked bag"
Ưu: "Just about everything. very smooth operation."
Ưu: "Landed safely."
Khuyết điểm: "Flight was delayed multiple hours without notice. A one hour flight became an 8 hour journey. Seats were small and uncomfortable. I was sitting next to a host of characters that were all concerned they would miss their connecting flight. No tv or entertainment on seat."
Ưu: "The initial price"
Khuyết điểm: "We didn't even get to take this flight. My wife ended up having to have emergency surgery. I tried to get a hold of them for a week prior to our flight to get it moved back a month but there was no way to reach a representative. I'm sure there would of been a fee but with the doctors note I was hoping they could give us a little break and just reschedule the flight. Even if they charged a fee I would of been fine with that but I wasn't even able to get a hold of someone to discuss that option. I just had to eat the ticket and rebook it later at twice the price."
Khuyết điểm: "Flight departed 30 minutes late. No water or drinks included. I understand meals or snacks but not even water?"
Khuyết điểm: "No food or beverages served, seats wouldn't recline, bag fee"
Ưu: "Worst airline I've ever traveled on, their baggage fees are excessive their flight was a disaster it was delayed they didn't give us any information checking in was horrendous they were very disorganized. Their seats are tiny I am 5 feet 6 inches and I barely fit comfortably. Honestly I will definitely avoid AirAsia in the future I I traveled on many other airlines and found this to be the worst."
Ưu: "Nothing. Will never, ever, ever fly them again."
Khuyết điểm: "First off, with no notice, they did not allow without a fee a single bag. None. And they changed $100 for the bags. Told us it was because we used Kayak, and not directly through them. It took off two hours late. Another first, I have never seen an airline not offer you water. Nothing. 2 hour flight, nothing. The landing reminded us of the old People's Express, Scare the hell out of you. Use Thai Air. Even on one hour flights they feed you and offer you refreshments and good service. I repeat, do not fly Thai Air Asia. When I return to the States, will be contacting Kayak about our experience."
Khuyết điểm: "nowhere did I read that you had to pay for baggage. what I thought was a value price ended up costing much more than a full service airline."
