I would not hesitate to fly them again if the price were right.
I also support this. I've used Air asia 11 times in the last 18 months, flying on both D7
and have had a great experience each time. In fact, I enjoyed my D7
flight from KUL
much more than my MH
two weeks earlier. Even my wife said she prefered the D7
flight over MH
While flying D7
, twice i was delayed by 3 hours, but both times we recieved multiple text messages to inform us of the delay, and to tell us to turn up at the airport a few hours later to accomodate the delay. Bith times we were provided a letter at check-in explaining the delay, that had we needed to make a travel insurance claim, this would have been fantastic. This is service above and beyond in my opinion.
What seats have you selected? If you have chosen a Hot Seat, I would recomend row 14, the second row of the emergency exit, espically for your 3.5 hour flights. The first row of the exit rows has the extra legroom that the second has, but the seats do not recline, while the seats in row 14 do recline, meaning you end up with extra leg and "face" room. Row 1 is nice, as you get off quickly, but has permenant armrests to accomodate the tray tables, so the seats are a little bit small than all the other rows that have moveable armrests.
If you were taking a short hop from say KL
etc... i would say not to bother with selecting your seats, but for a longer sector i would pre book a hot seat in the exit row.
My advice for AirAsia, is make sure you purchase enough Luggage in advance. When i recently flew from LGK
i told my wife to take some of the luggage out of her checked in bag and to carry it as hand luggage. But in her defiant way, she assured me it would be ok... Well, we ended up 3kg over our pre purchased allowance and it cost us 45myr Not much really, but when KUL
, 15 kg luggage for the two of us and a meal each way (i'm trying to eat my way through all their options) only cost me 40myr, paying 45mry for 3kgs because my wife did not want to carry it herself... well, she quickly repacked her bag before our next flight.
As for the meals, i really enjoy the food available on AirAsia. The hot meals look nothing like the pictures, but they are cheap, come with a cuplet of water and taste really nice. My favourite is the Hot Dog, followed by an Iced Tea and some KrispyKream doghnuts.
Enjoy your trip.
