"delayed for 4 hrs to depart"

(Mozambique)

Trip Verified | Cebu to Manila. AirAsia delayed for 4 hrs to depart from Cebu bound for Manila, and their delay caused me losing my international flight bound for Doha. This led me to spend US$230 to revalidate international flight for next flight schedule and stay in Manila city for two nights. When I complain and ask for compensation AirAsia don't recognize the claim and simply gave me a nonsense reply just to wash their hands. And after they reply in next 30 mins they send another email "Congratulating me that they successfully close the case". What a shame. Anyone who is concerned about right use of money, time and has next flight commitment should not use AirAsia at all.

"not recommend this airline"

(United States)

Trip Verified | As I sit typing this review, our flight originally departing at 8.40pm has been delayed more than 4 hours and we have yet to begin boarding. Estimated time of boarding was at midnight. Upon check-in at 5pm this afternoon, I inquired upon an earlier flight since we have had a sudden death in the family, namely, my grandmother. We were supposed to attend her wake this evening. I was informed by airport staff that there were no earlier flights we can transfer to. Since then, we had to wait in the over-crowded and freezing cold pre-departure terminal. Food stands ran out of food due to the volume of passengers waiting at NAIA and we have been informed of delays pushing back every hour, preventing us from being able to make a decision on the most comfortable arrangement with regards to changing or keeping our flight in lieu of an overnight accommodation in Manila. Suffice it to say, we will never be flying AirAsia Philippines again and would not recommend this airline.

"book with a different airline"

(United States)

Trip Verified | If you want to wait 2-3 extra hours due to delayed flights, AirAsia Philippines is the airline for you. Along with my boyfriend, we experienced at least a two hour delay each way from Manila to Puerto Princesa and back. The flight attendants are kind, however, all of the check in staff from Puerto Princesa airport were rude and careless. Even though you save a couple bucks with this airline, save yourself and book with a different airline even if it costs a few extra dollars.

"we find it affordable"

(Philippines)

Verified Review | We are frequent flyer of AirAsia Philippines since we find it affordable and we're comfortable with your company. But there's a need to be calibrated when it comes to your hand carry bags requirements. We're able to fly from Manila to Tagbilaran via AirAsia on October 14with our backpacks as hand carry but when we were about to fly back they insist one of our backpacks to be checked in because of the size. We asked them how AirAsia manila was able to allow us without checking it in and they are not. They are not even accomodating to help us.

"simple and straightforward"

(Philippines)

Verified Review | Cebu to Puerto Princesa. Upon our arrival an hour in advance at the pre-departure gate we found it crowded and full of other passengers from a different flight and seats were all full, we had to wait a bit farther away from our gate. Our aircraft arrived earlier than scheduled and the gate was opened for boarding 30mins than what was posted. Boarding in our plan was organized and peaceful as passengers were called in with respect to their seating assignments. The aircraft turnaround time was quick and methodical. Our flight to Puerto Princesa began with no incident and we landed safely in the new Puerto Princesa Airport 30 minutes ahead of schedule. Overall the flight was simple and straightforward like any one hour domestic flight should be.

"Unfriendly staff"

(Philippines)

Verified Review | Manila to Cebu. Delayed. Unfriendly staff. We were transferred from one plane to another. Our baggage arrived earlier than us, we end up in Cebu looking for our baggage and we do not know where to find it took us 3hrs before we got our baggage. The staff shouted on us and said that we are not paying attention when our names were called!

"most disappointing airline"

(United Kingdom)

Verified Review | Manila to Caticlan. AirAsia Philippines is the most disappointing airline. Our flight going from Manila to Caticlan was delayed for 3 hours. Which meant we had to wait in the airport for 6 hours altogether. When we actually got on the plane we waited for a further hour until moving. The crew was apologetic however they were giving different reasons as to why we were being delayed. One reason was that the runway wasn't free and the next was there was a problem with a machine to get the engine going. Me and my boyfriend were expecting to spend 2 and a half days of sun in Boracay, however, because of this we wasted a day off our short holiday. Despite the low fare, the waiting isn't worth it when you could get to your destination on time by spending a bit more money on a different airline.

"changed the flight departure time "

(Denmark)

Verified Review | I was supposed to travel AirAsia Philippines from Cebu to Manila. AirAsia Philippines changed the flight departure time from 20.10 to 23.20. No compensation and an unengaged staff that couldn't care less. Will never fly them again.

"hidden fees and information"

(Canada)

Verified Review | Kalibo to Manila. We purchashed our tickets online prior to arriving to the country. We were surprised by the online booking fee that appears right befor paying. It was in the amount of half the actual fare per person. Once we arrived in the Philippines we received an email to inform us that our flight from Manila to Kalibo was going to be delayed. Once we arrived to the check in counter to see if we can get on an earlier flight they were able to accommodate this. Our original flight was for 530pm. We were able to get on a 330 pm flight. We had to check in 1 baggage with a weight limit of 21kg that costed again half the cost of the flight? Sitting around the airport we were informed that this flight will be delayed, not once, not twice, not three times. Our rescheduled flight was now 530pm. On the way back, they decided a checked in baggage weight maximum of 10kg, so going there you are expected to drop half of what you brought? If we arrived 4 hours earlier (who does this for a domestic flight?) the fee would be cheaper. So another surprising fee. So now we are here and our flight is delayed for an hour and a half and this is the first flight of the day from Kalibo to Manila. I wonder if we are delayed 4 hours if I would get the difference back for the fee I paid to check in my 10kg luggage. I am so happy we did not bring our children on this flight, it would have been a nigtmare. Lovely staff, but why all the hidden fees and information?

"happy with the overall experience"

(Philippines)

Verified Review | Manila to Tacloban was delayed for almost 3hrs, however, Air Asia was prepared by providing snacks. Tacloban to Manila was on time. Consistent on board service. Friendly cabin crew. Online booking still smooth. Keep it up. I am still happy with the overall experience.
