Denied boarding inspite of reaching 1.5 hours before departure
The boarding flight is painful experience, starting from entering the airport (poor training to staff to verify the identity and ticket details), standing at the counter to check in the baggage (extremely slow). Once boarded, it’s a pleasant experience. The crew is polite and patient.
Boarding was NOT good enough. Our cabin luggage was pushed back to check-in in the pretext of packed flight. But eventually there were empty seats on the flight. Also, we booked seats on exit rows... But seems something got changed and we got same seats alright, but they were no longer on exit row (& that was empty eventually). Flight claimed to have a travel time of 1 hour 50 minutes, but it took around 2:20 minutes (seems Indigo has a different clock). 😂
Clean, timely, professional.
Check in is a mess. Be ready for a traumatic experience from the unsupportive and rude check in staffs and duty managers at Calicut airport. It’s a chaos and the lines are mostly first in last out, as they don’t care of the passenger well being or the waiting time. They are just concerned of checking in before the boarding call. Personal experience is of standing 2 hours straight just for check in. Flight is ok, food preordered are all the instant ones with hot water mix, which tastes pathetic. Overall, will never take another indigo flight to fly out of india.

Khuyết điểm: "All good."
Ưu: "The staff at the airport check in counter cause too many delays by asking unnecessary questions regarding visa for concerned country, where as they only need to check for onward ticket. Also, passenger at the back of my seat was causing discomfort by stretching his legs too close to my seat"
Khuyết điểm: "The staff at the aiport check in counter are not very well trained regarding visa requirements for other countries. The cabin crew needs to better train passengers regarding the amount of space allowed for their seat."

Khuyết điểm: "Seats were a bit hard"
Khuyết điểm: "When we booked the flight we were unaware the price did not include checked baggage. We called Kiwi.com and we asked what it would cost to add checked baggage. They said they’d check and get back with us. When they did they said the additional charge for 15kg was more than the ticket itself!! For more than 15 up to 30kg it was nearly 3 times as much! This really felt like a scam! We asked to cancel the flight and were told we could, but there was no guarantee of any refund. We said to cancel it anyway. Later I was told there would be no refund. I assumed it had been canceled and yet I got emails telling me it was time to check in, etc. And then I’m asked to review my flight! So, between Indigo and Kiwi.com I felt I got terrible service. I will not use either of them again. In the end we got a flight for the original amount including 15kg of checked baggage from a different website and on a different airline that left at the exact same. There was a reasonable charge per 5 kg over the15 allowed."

Ưu: "Good: cheap and on time. Bad: aways slow check-in and uncomfortable seating. Everything a budget airline should be."
Ưu: "The plane didn't crash."
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding was late and terribly disorganized - just a person yelling row numbers who could barely be heard. The airline makes you pay for water, which is simply inhuman - at least cattle in transport are given free water from time to time. It was a five-hour flight at night but we couldn't put the seats back to relax - the exit row was behind us and they've got the seats crammed in so tight together that they don't give the exit row any extra room to accommodate this, like most airlines. There are ads plastered all over the storage compartments. Recorded announcements threatened us with dire consequences if we stole the life vests (is that a thing people do?!). Everything looks cruddy, dingy and old. It feels like a cheap city bus, but in the air. At the end of the flight the crew walked through fumigating the cabin with spray cans of who-the-hell-knows-what and we had to breathe THAT in. We won't even consider Air Asia again unless there are literally no other possible choices. Just awful."
Ưu: "Cabin crew were professional and courteous. I like the boarding at rear of airplane first"
Khuyết điểm: "For me, the seats a were uncomfortable. No lower back support."
Ưu: "I was traveling without access to WiFi and was unable to add my checked bags until the morning them the web site wouldn't let me add the bags. I got to the airport and the airline charged me $300 in fees for my two bags. Highway robbery. I'll never fly Air Asia again."
Khuyết điểm: "Usurious fees for checked bags and the flights are always late to boot."
Ưu: "Quick easy and simple. Staff were very friendly."
Khuyết điểm: "The flight was delayed today for half an hour"
Khuyết điểm: "Badly managed check-in queue even for online checked passengers doing bag drop - 3 hours before departure at NAIA 3. There was no announcement from airline staff or anyone for that matter at the gate that the plane will be delayed. Plane departed 2 hours late and sitting in the tarmac with poor cooling inside the plane. Badly managed budget airline."
Ưu: "very affordable fare"
Khuyết điểm: "No beverage even water. Bring your own water"
Khuyết điểm: "Late. As always."
Ưu: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."
Khuyết điểm: "Cabin crew totally forget their priority task which is to Ensure the comfort of passenger. Instead everyone is so focus on retail as well as F&B add on sales."
Ưu: "Boarding quickly when plane finally arrived"
Khuyết điểm: "The reader board still said planned departure at wrong gate. When asked the staff said they "tried" to change it. Additional full security check before gate left all anxious and some panicked about making the flight. Add on charges- ticket no longer budget. Will avoid AirAsia in the future."
Ưu: "Very punctual departure and arrival."
Khuyết điểm: "Sadly, despite having printed our boarding pass we were.not allowed through security without a red stamp from Air Asia. This took.two attempts as they printed mine twice and not my husbands. Also check in counters had closed so we used the Sales counter. The staff forgot to give me back our passports and plastic pocket with all.our travel documents in. They were not very competent and not parrocularly polite. At no.point on the boarding pass did it tell us we needed a stamp from check.in. We had handluggage only."
Khuyết điểm: "The delays......"
Ưu: "Nothing anymore"
Khuyết điểm: "Departed from KL with a carry on, never asked to weigh it or check its size. On the way back from Langkawi, I was asked to weigh the bag since they suddenly implemented a policy of no more than 7kg on board. Told the rude creature that it was ok when I left KL, he said: here in langkawi we are implementing the policy and have nothing to do with KL!! Was asked to check-in my bag, and paid RM79 for the extra 3 kilos. Never flying with them again."
Ưu: "Comfortable flight and friendly crew."
Khuyết điểm: "Long check in lines at Siem Reap airport. High baggage fee (USD 36) for not having pre-booked a checked bag online."
Ưu: "It's good when u pay rm50 something, but later u will have to wait!"
Khuyết điểm: "Chaotic boarding, and of course, around an hour delay."
Khuyết điểm: "When i arrived at airport i was inform that y must paid us$ 70 extra for a 15kg bag(was the only bag for two passwngers)When i arriVed at airport i was inform that y must paid us$ 70 extra for a 15kg bag(was the only bag for two passwngers)"
Ưu: "We reached our destination"
Khuyết điểm: "When researching flights, I really wish AirAsia's procedures were spelled out. Having to pay for each checked bag and each kg over a relatively low allowance was extremely annoying. Even worse, each leg of the flight (due to a layover) required payment. In addition, paying for the seat, paying for peanuts and water?? Probably the worst was the air crew refusing to give a blanket to my freezing fiance without purchasing the pillow, blanket and eye mask bundle. Seriously?? Then towards the end of the flight, the crew walk the aisles holding alcohol and perfume trying to peddle their duty-free products on the plane itself. It was quite evident by this point that the competitve ticket price is a hoax, and all that they are interested in is getting as much money from you as possible. Unless I have no choice, I will never fly this airline again. Please, warn people of these practices BEFORE they purchase the tickets!!"
Khuyết điểm: "Flight was delayed by over 9 hours out of Colombo. Missed our connection to Ho Chi Minh city. Colombo ground crew and customer service didn't have any idea about the status of the flight."
Khuyết điểm: "It was my first time flying a LCC. OK, it is my fault for not knowing they charge much higher rate of extras for any add-ons you fail to include when you first book the flight. I get it. But why do they make it impossible to access "manage your flight" online to make necessary changes on return flight? And I got nowhere with the online chat box, s nowhere to turn.... Making such changes on Tiger Air was so much easier and intuitive. I'll never fly Air Asia if I can help it."
Ưu: "Ease of web checkin but it took too long to drop off luggage"
Khuyết điểm: "No inflight entertainment. Had to buy food including all beverages."
Ưu: "Competitive price, good regional carrier, especially short flights."

Khuyết điểm: "All was good"
Quick boarding, on time . No hassle glight
Ưu: "Early arrival and on time departure"
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."
Ưu: "Comfortable seats, clean plane. On time."
Khuyết điểm: "The crew just sat in the back. They practically did nothing. Recommend you offer pillows and blankets on night flights."
Ưu: "afforadable fares"

Khuyết điểm: "Not worth the price savings"
Ưu: "Seat was good .. the flight was not full"
Khuyết điểm: "Crew non smile."
Ưu: "Crew was excellent. Seats border on the awful. I am 6'2". My knees were almost touching my chest. And, the airline allows seats to recline. Seriously? Short flight however."
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding area at DMK was in a large area for gates 1-6. It was packed. Almost wall to wall people. No air conditioning. Blowers circulating hot air. Major thunderstorm delayed boarding for 1 1/2 hours. All flights. Chaos in the bordering area. Not fun."
Khuyết điểm: "Great flight experience"
Khuyết điểm: "It is one of the best low cost airline.Ground staff very helpful even the cabin crew were supportive"
Ưu: "Competitive price,"
Khuyết điểm: "Adverised price include proccessing fee. 7kg carry on stingy"
Ưu: "I don't remember ordering food, but I got some and it was okay. Knowing AirAsia, I'd better check my card statement."
Khuyết điểm: "Why give out three or four zones for boarding but only use zone 1, then anything goes afterwards?"
Ưu: "Uniforms are nice"
Khuyết điểm: "All food was for sale not included. Good it was not more than a four hour flight and I happened to have kept some thai money since it was a flight out of thailand. Also, this was our connecting flight - one in the middle of three flights going back to LA. For some reason, the gate attendant decided to have issues with my wife's passport, ticket, and greencard. All were valid. We bought the tickets and were in the middle of the flight, so it was late for any questions..... Took them awhile to determine that the greencard was really none of their business since we were flying through china and into the US on another airline. Luckily we were able to get on the plane before it left. Seems like the gate agents need better training on this."
Khuyết điểm: "We were running late for the flight due to long lines at immigration which was not Air Asia’s fault, but when we finally made it to the check-in counters we were misdirected several times and given conflicting information. On top of that after we finally checked in we had to go another counter to pay the baggage fee and we’re misdirected there too. After wasting 25 minutes we made the flight, but only because it was 30 minutes late."
Ưu: "Flight arrived early quick and easy boarding Good seat"
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing. It was just as expected"
Ưu: "Plus: That I burned lots of calories when dealing with their chaos and long lines."
Khuyết điểm: "Minus: On my flight from Bangkok to Siem Reap today, the seat in front of mine was broken and the seat back would not stay upright. The man in it asked for a new seat, and the FA first told him that it was okay, despite his head being in my lap. Both of us said that was dangerous, and only after arguing with three FAs was he finally able to change seats!"
Ưu: "Great flight inc snack. Friendly staff flight on time."
Ưu: "Nice crew. Clean airplane."
Khuyết điểm: "Very small seat in upgrade area. DO NOT BUY SIM CARD ON AIRPLANE. Buy it when you exit. They rip you off on flight and it’s not connected."

Ưu: "We arrived"
Khuyết điểm: "Started with booking, a package includes seats but the seats included we're all full,of i.e. need to pay more again.but100 Dollar for credit card booking? They are crazy! Check-infamily with just computers is terrible, didn't worked properly. Included food in package but can't choose, both legs the same food. Baggage damaged. Long walk in DMK to transfer, inefficient. Overall just a shitty experience!"

Ưu: "Price and smooth flight"
Ưu: "Good price and on time."
Khuyết điểm: "Very poor check in at DMK. Chaotic."
Ưu: "Good quick and courteous service. As long as you know you get what you pay for. 2 bags carry on max of 7kg combined is tight. Rates are cheap and crowds queue up way before normal but good for the price."
Khuyết điểm: "You have to pay for every little tiny thing. They won't give you your passport back until you've paid for your luggage. They don't offer free drinks on the plane."
Khuyết điểm: "There was only one lady checking passports for the connecting Airasia flights...so approximately 50 in line and only one lady helping all of us. When we arrived to Krabi, our checked bags were at a different terminal so we had to go to the other side of the airport to get our bags that were sent from siem reap. Waste of 40 minutes!"
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: "The price was cheap and with the value deal you get 20kg can choose a seat and get a small sandwich and water that's alright. Boarding was fast."
Khuyết điểm: "It was quite bumpy throughout both flight were I was wondering why it was perfect weather. Both my flights were delayed You have to pay for everything wondering why I don't have to pay for the toilet. =)"

Khuyết điểm: "Liked it all"
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 was okay"
Khuyết điểm: "the plane was dirty and hot and arrived at airport late"
Ưu: "plane was clean"
Khuyết điểm: "Crew did not communicate anything about unexpected wait times. Flight was hot and uncomfortable"
Ưu: "Quick boarding, on time, professional staff. Can get cheap food ahead of time, but only recommended if you won't have time to eat otherwise because the food isn't great."
Khuyết điểm: "No individual seat entertainment, less legroom than other carriers"
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: "Quick on time boarding and departure. Crew was professional and helpful."
Ưu: "AirAsia is cheap and not cheerful. You only get the cheap fare if you dont check on luggage."
Khuyết điểm: "Rio offs on luggage."
Ưu: "Good food warm service"
Ưu: "Easy transfer, read the bad reviews. We had no issue bringing in food by the crew. Seriously these are cheap flights. They are giving you choices and pay accordingly according to your choices."
Khuyết điểm: "Terminal changed twice so it was a bit confusing"
Ưu: "Not a thing."
Khuyết điểm: "I will never fly with AirAsia again. Absolutely no service on an international flight is rediculous."
