You really want to be geeky ! Find out what metal they fly DEL-KUL, as they do change seasonally (seatguru.com will help) - Then go find a site which lists delays/engineering etc. etc. As to short haul - It's medium haul - if you consider 16 hour DEL-EWR flights.

It's Mid

So my post is of no help.

But honestly, all my 2 hour flights with them have been great, can't see how doubling that would make them any worse.

They also have a fairly new fleet I believe in comparison to some airlines.

That is what, five hours or a little less? If so, I would classify it as the long end of short.

This is sounding more and more like a discussion on skirt lengths..

Have flown Air Asia on a Kuala Lumpur - Taiwan flight. Nothing shockingly bad, nothing good either, it's a good budget airline. The seating was uncomfortable, but that's because I was fat at that moment, had I weighted 15 kilos less, it'd have been OK.

But then, I might be used to barebones airlines, having flown on Air Serbia and on Russian international flights quite a couple times.

Not bad

Hello,

In 2010 we travelled to various destination in SE Asia using Air Asia and few other budget airlines.

Air Asia - Flights were on time, clean and no complaints. The Air Asia terminal in KL is away from the city but well connected. we reached KL late at night and had no problems getting to the city by Bus.

They are no better no worse then any other economy class airline .

All the Best
Mani

The worst aspect of flying Air Asia or any of the low cost airlines is the convoluted booking system where everything is an add on. Once you realise this and add seat selection, a meal maybe, baggage and a few other add-ons it becomes near the same or more as full service airlines. I have flown Air Asia a lot over the years but now fly with full service airlines for similar cost and most have more legroom and better service. That is not to say they have bad service but others are better. The longest flight I took with Air Asia was Per to Kul and Kul to Bangalore and Trivandrum. It's the old saying, you get what you pay for. Zamba.

I have used Air Asia for domestic flights in Thailand. Never used them for International sectors.

Have heard good reports about their business class with flat bed etc.

A friend of mine flies with them at least four times a year between Sydney/Kuala Lumpur/ Pnom Penh and he is very happy with them.
The only issue he has with them is long waiting time in KL.

On my first India trip I flew Air Asia Perth to Kul and Kul to Trivandrum in 2012. The 22 hour wait for the connecting flight ensured that I wouldn't fly with Air Asia from Perth to India again. Their connecting times are very long. I have flown Tiger and Scoot also to and from India with much better connecting times. Zamba.

How is scoot, zamba ? Considerations are leg room and on time arrival.

I'm an unashamed AirAsia fanboy. Before AirAsia brought real competition to Australian air travel I was paying $1000 return just to get to Bali - now I pay a little over $200 return. I've flown to most parts of Asia with them on what must surely be getting close to a hundred flights and have only ever had one delay of two hours. (This may also be due to flying smarter and taking first flights of the day where possible)

I probably wouldn't fly long-haul with them, and haven't, as at six feet three in height, the lack of leg room in economy takes its toll after around four hours flying.

I'm flying to India arriving into Kochi from Perth Australia in July for US$160. That is incredibly cheap air travel and I am prepared to cut AirAsia some slack should other aspects of their airline be less than perfect.
The idea that seeing the world means going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
