Air Asia announced surcharge on tickets booking since yesterday. Fuel surcharge is now RM10 per way for domestic flights, RM20 TO RM30 per way for international flights. Even though it doesn't seem to be a huge amount, but looking at they are charging convenience fee for credit card payment and other add on charges, I really wonder whether we can still get low price for our tickets?
My personal experience of buying domestic air ticket from KL to Kuching(2 way), Fireflyz prices are cheaper than Air Asia promo price. Looking at the comfort of landing at KLIA, why should we go for Air Asia?
My last experience flying Singapore Airlines from KL-SIN-BRISBANE, really made me feel that their service is no doubt 5 star! In fact, the promotion ticket for 2 to go was rather reasonable, for less than RM2,200/= per pax. Food was good, seat was comfortable, in flight entertainment was superb, and not to mentioned, the smile on the face of air steward/stewardess really made one feel good! of course, it it not fair to compare them with Air Asia, as it is not an apple to apple comparison. However, my point is no frills does not mean lousy service, so far, Air Asia staff, from ground staff to cabin crew, most of their faces were arrogant, not friendly...some more their prices are not competitive most of the time ( unless you are booking very much ahead, or you are so lucky to get their zero fare deal)!
Hmm....that's one more reason I don't like Air Asia!!
