Lion Air review

Privately run Lion Air is the largest airline in Indonesia, and just the second largest in SE Asia – after AirAsia. Thai Lion Air is an associate company of Lion Air Group (together with Lion Air and Wings Air), operating in Thailand.

Lion Air may be not known for its punctuality (many passengers report huge delays) but if you remember that it’s a truly low-cost airline, some things may be forgiven. The same goes for complaints about narrow seats, no free meals, or no baggage allowance included in the flight ticket. On a positive note, there is a decent selection of drinks and meals sold on board, you can buy online the exact amount of baggage allowance you need, and the staff is friendly, polite, and helpful.

The bottom line: Lion Air, Thai Lion Air, and Wings Air are good airlines for a budget flyer if there is no need or expectation for luxury travel.
