Air Asia Reviews and Passenger Opinions about Air Asia product and service standards (4944 words)
Air Asia uses the LCC terminal in KL which is a long way from the main terminal, so the first tip is don't use the train to get here (I took a taxi from KL centre for MYR 100 - Air Asia has its own busses from KL Sentral for MYR 9).
Therefore Air Asia should have more of this particular meal on their flights due to the fact that most of the time, half of the passengers are told that the Nasi Lemak is sold out and that the rest of the passengers to opt for sandwiches or instant noodles.
Overall, I didn't regret to fly with air Asia not only because of their low price (in fact, I have booked the ticket in advance of 8 months and their anniversary campaign was being held so we got several free tickets!), but that the price meets the service.
