If you are traveling internal domestic in Thailand Thai Lion Air can be consider as a choice, we find it better than AirAsia...Thai Lion Air has come a long way its has somewhat improve...but of course it needs more improvement. Consider it on your next domestic Thailand Flight.

However I was aware that the flight took off and landed on time and that the plane was a new Boeing 737. The return flight was another good experience. Again take off and landing were...

It is a terrible airline. The indvidual at the check in desk at the Dhaka International Airport lied to us about my wife and daughters visas. They informed us that because they were from Turkey they couldn't get a visa to Thailand. We then looked this up online on our phones and told the gentleman that this is not true,...

Lots of compalaints here but my flight forth and back between BKK and chiang mai was great. The staff noticed my tall legs and, once up in the air, offered me a seat with extra leg space for free. On the way back, this happened again. Also on time both flights.

If you book extra luggage four hours in advance, the charges are 50THB/kg. Else the price increases by 800%. for 7 kg of additional luggage, I had to pay more than four times the cost of air ticket.... RIDICULOUS!!!.......Never flying again with Thai Lion air...

Flying from Bangkok to Phuket is just one click with Thai Lion Air online booking. They accept credit card. There was no delay on our flight schedule. The plane is huge one, a 330 airbus, it is clean and with cool airconditioners. The landing and take off was smooth. The pilot delivered us to bangkok safely. The luggage came out...

This is a Budget Airline. I get that. What I don't get is that you can't buy extra baggage online using a foreign credit card. After an hour of trying different credit cards wondering why my transactions keep getting rejected, I called the help line to find out that the website does not accept overseas credit cards. If you are...
