No electrical plugs or USB plugs. No lounge at KKC airport.
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
Ưu: "We forgot to pack our liquid products into the check in baggage. After we went through the security check, we brought the liquid products back to the boarding pass counter, our baggage had already been sent to downstream. But the staffs was very helpful, they provided a box, packed the liquid products for us and checked it in as the second luggage. This solved our headache and it was a huge deal for us, making us smile. Thanks to your crew/staffs again."
Khuyết điểm: "Providing some snacks would be helpful when getting off the board."
Khuyết điểm: "We got drinking water after landing. Would be better to provide some snacks on the way out."
Ưu: "On time, clean smooth ride. Landed early!"
Ưu: "Brilliantly safety-conscious crew but very personable."
Khuyết điểm: "It would been very nice to not have to board a shuttle bus to be taken to the flight in BKK."
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: "Lovely people. Lovely service. Good food."
Ưu: "Super cool light meal in a little bag. Best budget airline I have flown."
Khuyết điểm: "An hour delay for no expressed reason is not acceptable."
Ưu: "I'm very justifying for the flight."
Ưu: "Great flight on Thai Smile."
Khuyết điểm: "No online check-in available. Waited very long for someone to show up at check-in desk a few hours before the flight."
Ưu: "Seats were comfy and staff helpful and nice."
Khuyết điểm: "$60 charge for 10 kilos overweight limit. This is terrible."
Khuyết điểm: "We did not receive any information as to why our flight was late."
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: "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: "Crew was friendly and helpful, boarding was easy, flight was smooth"
Khuyết điểm: "No entetainment, food just a pretty untasty sandwich"
Ưu: "Great short flight. Flight attendants were really hustling to get everyone served and picked up after on such a short flight."
Khuyết điểm: "When I booked with Thai Smile direct, the booking somehow added insurance. I know I did not choose insurance. Working with AMEX ;to dispute those charges. Be careful if you book direct with Thai Smile."
Ưu: "friendly, professional crew"
Khuyết điểm: "The flight from BKK-VTE did not allow online check-in and had to check in at the airport. The line to check in had 10 people in front of me which then proceeded to take over 1.5 hours to reach the counter. then was the very last person to get on the flight - the plane then didn’t leave for another 30 minutes. Thai Smile managed to make a 1 hour flight to Vientiane turn into a 4-5 hour journey between arriving early, waiting forever in the counter check in line, then being driven to the plane and actually leaving. Bangkok Airways and Air Asia (don meaung) is the better option for this short journey."
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: "Arrived to BKK international with Turkmen airlines. Found Thai Smile transfer counter in transit zone. Was refused to Thai Smile flight, was explained that they serve only customers which arrived to BKK with Thai airways. Lost my money and had to buy another ecpencieve flight from Malaysia airlines because couldn't stay in transit zone more than 12 hours and couldn't get visa on arrival. Later coldn'd find that stupid transit policy ether on Thai Smile or Kayak. If that policy in place why not publish that BEFORE people spend their money for service not provided? Very unsatisfied"
Ưu: "The crew was incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. Excellent service on board the aircraft with comfortable seating. And the meal served was delicious! (I never thought I would say that about food served on an airplane)"
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding process was a bit slow and cumbersome, but, to be fair, I noticed it wasn't much different than all my other flight experiences in Thailand."
Ưu: "On boar meal was great. Customer service was outstanding!"
Khuyết điểm: "They don't offer more flights!"
Ưu: "what's not to like. Free checked bag, free food, sandwich and bottle of water, soda and hot coffee and tea at no charge. All of the cheaper budget airlines charge for everything including checked bags, drinks and food. It's only a few baht/ US dollars more than the other airlines but well worth it for what you get in return compared to the other airlines such as Air Asia!"
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing that I can think of."
Ưu: "Quick flight"
Khuyết điểm: "40 minute delay"
Ưu: "Awesome service, great staff, amazing trip"
Ưu: "Its only a short flight so there's not much time for anything to go wrong but it's good anyway. The staff are always friendly and helpful."
Khuyết điểm: "Sometimes it can be difficult to hear announcements at the departure gate but apart from that no problem. Obviously there isn't any entertainment so I've left it at 5 stars. There should be a 'not applicable' option on this."
Khuyết điểm: "The crew had a poor attitude and even rude, I asked to move to get past the food trolley as my 4 year old son needed the toilet and they just said wait, they would only have to move 2 metres. We were sitting directly behind upper class but were not offered the chance to use the forward toilet even though there was no one sitting in that section. They seemed to have an attitude problem and not at al like Thai International who are excellent. will never fly again with Thai smile."
Ưu: "The cost of upgrading to business class was very reasonable for a flight of that duration. Everything was stellar - service, food, drinks and access to the airport lounge. The meals were among the best I've had on any flight."
Khuyết điểm: "The guy snoring. His snoring was literally louder than the noise from the jet engines and easily rose to levels that penetrated our noise cancelling headsets!!"
Ưu: "Food is good for a short flight. The crew were professional."
Khuyết điểm: "The check-in process at terrible. No instruction to follow and no one give direction on where to get boarding pass. the line for luggage drop-off was really long without people to give direction."
Ưu: "Good flight, reasonable price"
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing"
Ưu: "Very flight and check-in process"
Ưu: "Aircraft size was big for short haul"
Khuyết điểm: "Not much to dislike"
Ưu: "The gate agent saw how tall my husband was and upgraded us to the exit row for more leg room which was awesome. I was feeling a little sick and the flight attendants were great to get me water and make sure I was doing ok."
Khuyết điểm: "I don't like fish and they offered a fish sandwich but it was only an hour long flight so I was fine with it."
Ưu: "Crew were friendly and did a great job in the short time they had."
Ưu: "Great flight. On time. The crew was polite and professional. Nice experience."
Ưu: "Chaotic check in process, ok boarding process, poor entertainment and nothing for vehetarians"
Ưu: "Overall everything was good except meal option"
Khuyết điểm: "Not having vegetarian snack or meal"
Khuyết điểm: "The price. This flight specifically was more expensive than others"
Khuyết điểm: "The flights were delayed for both times of the round trip from BKK to Phuket and Phuket to BKK. Wasted 2 days as we got stranded in the airport. Unacceptable! Flight to Yangon from Bangkok was cancelled and they didn't send any notification to inform us. Horrible customer service. When transferred the flight to Thai Airways flight we were very rudely treated by the counter agent. For 5 hours of wasted time they "accomodated" us with 350 baht ($10) vouchers and when asked to provide us with free extra bag check-in the manager said sorry we can't do that. No resolution no compromise NO SMILE! Above average airline price with terrible service, expect this to happen to you too."
Ưu: "The ladies are so kind...unlike many American airlines! Very nice flight!"
Ưu: "Our flight time itself was changed to a couple of hours later. We got notified the night before so we could make plans accordingly. In addition staff took good care of customers and helped with onward bookings etc. we were all given vouchers as well"
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."
