Here is a short review of my experience of flying with Air Asia X.

Positives

Price. Being a low cost airline price is essentially the most important aspect of the service and Air Asia certainly delivered. A 7 hour flight cost me $180 and I was thrilled with that.

Service. Service has been great everytime I’ve flown with them, very friendly staff. Additionally, Air Asia flights always seems to be on time if not early in departing and arriving an airport.

Option town. Option town is a site you can visit before your flight and its here you can elect to pay a bit extra for a seat upgrade, extra leg room, inflight entertainment and food on your flight. Personally I really like paying for the extras instead of a full service meal because this way I can choose my own meals and I’m getting what I pay for and not things that I don’t want.

Negatives

Seats. Being a low cost airline the seat are a little smaller and you don’t get a lot of leg room. But hey, you get what you pay for right?

Extras. If you want to watch a movie on board you’ll need to bring your own device as Air Asia X don’t fit their planes with in flight entertainment. Or you can pay the airline to borrow an iPad on board which isn’t expensive.

Food. No meals are provided, if you want to eat on your flight you’ll need to book and pay for a meal when making your booking- the meals aren’t extravagant or anything and cost from memory about $7.

Recommendation
I would definitely recommend Air Asia X to anyone but specifically to those hoping to travel on a budget. Its a great airline doing an amazing job of making travel more affordable.
