I have travelled routinely throughtout the usa and overseas using the same luggage. They hassle us at the baggage check in about weight. Extortion. Only airlines I would go out of my way to avoid.

Thai Lion is the worst airline. All flights booked were delayed at least 1 hour to 2 hours. We missed our flights due to the delay. Check in was a mess. We arrived very early, at 6:45am and our flight was at 8:50am. There were 300 people ahead of us and it took us almost 2 hours to get to...

It was disappointing when we have to re schedule our flight for 3 times. They change it like don’t care that we have another thing. We have to catch another flight to Myanmar (using other airlines). Flight experience was okay.

This is my first time flying Thai Lion Air to Bangkok & we chose it because of the timing. I can't remember flying into Don Muang Airport before, but unless you're looking for the cheapest airfare I would choose another. The flight was packed & we were herded like cattle. When we arrived in Don Muang the plane stopped on...

Two-way fare is about 90USD, quite cheap. The staffs are nice. Worst thing is Don Muang airport, it's old and boring.
