To fly or not to fly - Air asia :)

Hi guys,

My husband and I have flown air asia from bangkok to chiang mai in april 07, and are now looking at flying from australia to KL then KL to Phnom Penh at end of december. are there any recommendations? we've read the reviews about time delays luggage delays etc, and are happy with that as we are now expecting it, however, I'm not a great flyer, do you think that it really isn't the 'safest' option, and we should avoid it...or do people think with in flight entertainment or an ipod things would be smooth?

Thanks guys,


New York

I flew 8 times this past May with them.

Bangkok - Chiang Mai r/t

Bangkok - Phuket r/t

Bangkok - Singapore r/t

Bangkok - Hanoi r/t

I did not have any delay nor missing luggage.

Be aware to pay for the luggage fee online, it is cheaper than in the airport.

I would not pay for express check in. It does not work.

I've used them from the Gold Coast to KL and they were great, yes do bring something to entertain yourself, and yes indeed, the XL seats are well worth it.
