I flew to KL last year with Air Asia X and had no complaints over the seat comfort and legroom. The layout was 2-4-2 with 32" of legroom...
However, they have since changed the layout to 3-3-3 (which makes each since 1" narrower), introduced new slim-line seats (which increases the effective seat pitch) and retained the 32" of legroom... In terms of legroom alone they are better than Qantas and BA and on-par with Singapore Airlines (based on figures from seatguru.com).
If you can afford it, I'd opt for one of the hot seats as these increase the legroom further... I'm due to fly with Air Asia X again in October and have booked seats in row 27 as they have effectively unlimited legroom being emergency exit seats... the catch is they cost £20 each way.
Wow, very helpful. That AirAsia blog is also very good. They never cease to surprise me.
Sounds like you've had a good experience with them.
Might just go ahead and book, unless I can find cheap flights to BKK or Samui which is where we are heading eventually.
Thanks v much

I'm doing this flight on Wednedsay so will let you know! I've paid for the extra legroom, fingers crossed it will all go well!
