"low budget airline with no frills"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | We flew from Delhi to Perth via Kuala Lumpur. The service staff were good, the food was average, the toilets were average with a blocked basin and there was no entertainment. The seating was not too bad and the plane was not full. They got us home safely but you could see that this is a low budget airline with no frills.

"departure always late"

(India)

Trip Verified | Delhi to Bali via Kuala Lumpur. Departure always late by at least 1 hour. Keep changing the gate number for the departure. Turn off the entertaiment screen half an hour before landing and take away the headphones early. Only 2 washroom for 200 economy class people. Waited 15 minutes and then asked to sit without using washroom.

"seem on the way to be low-cost"

(Indonesia)

Trip Verified | Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta. This is my second time to fly with Malindo. Everything goes on like the first flight, on time departure and arrival, but nothing is really special. There was no IFE installed on the aircraft, not like the first one. I am not really sure how Malindo (Batik Malaysia) identify and define themselves. They started as hybrid airlines, and then claimed to be full service, and now they seem on the way to be low-cost.

"flight is quite comfortable "

(Indonesia)

Trip Verified | Jakarta to Kuala Lumpur. This my first time to fly with Malindo Air, actually i am a little bit confuse about how to call this airline wether Batik Air Malaysia or Malindo Air, since the rebranding is never finished or not. The flight is quite comfortable since the first step of booking, check in, and boarding was smooth although IFE on my seat did not work. Flight departed and arrived on time.

"been a horrible experience"

(Australia)

Trip Verified | Perth to Denpasar. Malindo sold our group of five university students non refundable flights which were found out to be cancelled before purchase. Flights still showed to be departing on the morning of the flight on Malindo Air website even though they were cancelled three days prior. Malindo refusing to give any form of compensation and now blocking all emails in regards to matter. I am disgusted with their service and this has been a horrible experience. I would give them 0 if possible.

"Leg room ample"

(United Arab Emirates)

Trip Verified | This was, I believe, the first late night / early morning flight for Malindo Air to Kuala Lumpur on a Tuesday which may explain the small number of passengers. Checking tracking websites, the incoming flight was delayed an hour with similar consequential delay in departure. Arrival KUL only 15 minutes behind time. Ample space to stretch out on board. Leg room ample and seats more comfortable than those offered by other airlines. Basic food (form of pot noodles) and soft drinks supplied but mostly slept given the 0240 departure. Basic headphones distributed for IFE. Sign on door stated Wi-Fi fitted but not advertised on board. Beware KUL airport as departure boards are not updated, a change in terminal for the connecting flight to Bangkok not shown until 25 minutes prior to departure with resultant mad dash to reach the gate via the train. On time arrival at DMK bags arriving at the carousel on clearing immigration.

"in my opinion it’s managed badly"

(Sri Lanka)

Trip Verified | Denpasar to Colombo via Kula Lumpur. The first and the last time I will fly this airline and in my opinion it’s managed badly. From Colombo to Denpasar they gave us a 1 hour transit in KL and lost our bags, and the baggage services asked why I had booked a flight with 1 hour transit - I said if the airline couldn’t handle it they shouldn’t have let me book flights with one hour transit. The bags were later found but I had to go back to the airport to collect them after more than 6 hours of arrival. On the way back we had a 6 hour transit in KL and the flight was delayed for another 2 hours. After they boarded us to ththe gate the flight never showed up and they only told us that there was a technical fault in the pklane and a engineer is trying to sort out only after passenger made a fuss. We are still waiting for the aircraft.

"Crews were attentive"

(Malaysia)

Trip Verified | Flew Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur. No doubt that Malindo Air is more than a budget airline comparing to other low cost airlines. However, many customer are not aware that the airline has revised its economy baggage allowance from 30kg to 25kg per domestic and international passenger since last year. During my flight, I was assigned at the middle emergency seat area. The leg room was huge. IFE content was decent but did not provide headset. Food was acceptable buts there was no choice,they do offer various of drinks. Crews were attentive.

"four flights had almost the same food"

(Sri Lanka)

Trip Verified | We used Malindo Air to fly from Colombo, Sri Lanka to Perth, Australia via Malaysia and returned back to Sri Lanka the same way. All four flights had almost the same food of rice (Nasi lemak). They had noodles too but when we asked the cabin crew were they said they didn't have the noodles option. While we were returning from Perth to Malaysia on 1st March 2018 it was supposed to be a 6 hours flight. I asked the cabin crew for a coffee, the cabin crew member told me that coffee serving time had finished. They had been serving coffee just 2 minutes before and they told me they would get me a coffee but I didn't get it. No dessert, no buns or coffee. They just serve the rice with a curry. Disappointed.

"Crew polite and immaculately attired"

(United Kingdom)

If only short haul travel in Europe could be like this! First time flying out of Don Muang, liked the airport actually. It was a lot more compact and easier to navigate than BKK. Check in was quick and Malindo allows you to check a bag in for free. The flight departed around 30 mins late which seems pretty much the norm for Malindo and an area where they should really try and improve. I was amazed at the condition of the cabin when I boarded - almost brand new plane, spotless, seats with great legroom and large IFE screen. Crew polite and immaculately attired. The IFE was more than enough for a flight of under two hours with several movies and TV programs. A hot pizza kind of snack was served along with a soft drink. All for a bargain price - was similar to Air Asia. Would definitely use again - in fact I've already booked further flights with them.
