I've been travelling internationally for nearly 40 years and can state without hesitation that Thai Lion Air is one of the worst, if not THE worst airline I've ever dealt with. They are unscrupulous and will use every trick in the book to try and rip you off. My advice is to stay away!

Fast and efficient flying. Basically a economy bus with wings. It's not fancy, but it gets the job done in a good manner. I enjoyed my trip. Just beware of the baggage allowance. Smaller carry-on and less weight on check-in baggage than normal international flights due to the smaller plane size.

amazingly it was on time. I was expecting delay as usual for LION air. from the terminal as usual we have to packed in 2 buses. I felt sorry for some old people that has to stand in the very packed and crowded buses. But no other choice.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was traveling alone. I booked Thai Lion as it was the cheapest ticket i could get however my experience with the airline was excellent. I didn't regret it even once. The airline is a very basic low cost carrier. You pay only for your travel (quite literally) but that is exactly...

And yes, its common to have delay like more than 50% of its flight will sure be delayed. This has been a common folks around indonesia. And into...

I've taken this airline multiple times and it's generally alright as they throw in 20kg baggage weight with the tickets unlike other budget carriers where you have to spend more to get the additional baggage weight. However, on this particular recent flight, we were hungry and wanted to purchase a meal on board only to be told that their food...
