I have never experienced so much incompetence and ignorance as with Firefly. Absolute cluelessness and helplessness, late or postpone answer or response to queries by e-mail. A tragedy and an indictment. Personally, I wonder how you as a company has managed to survive until

Kota Kinabalu - Penang
Domestic
Worst Airline I ever encountered; my flight was delayed for 7 hours without any explanation. Zero after-sale service with no replies to any phone calls / emails / messengers. Ride on your own risk, be warned. That will be my first and the last with this crappy airline.

"Be careful when you booked with Firefly. It seems to be their trend to retime the flight you booked. Be prepared of flight delayed or retime"
