Air Asia web site is now saying $99 is sold out - but that $149 is available. I didn't check further
I did, all $249 and up now, but think the next cheapest is now October 14.
Given that Jetstar and Scoot will be doing $250 air fares(I guess) - I would think AirAsia held some back for further sales later. But shows massive pent up demand for budget tix out of SYD.
If you don't print out prepaid BUS voucher in LCCC- it is a royal pain. Much better to buy the bus (if you want bus) on arrival. Taking a bus to the other side, then the express train does not work out much quicker - unless peak hour.
Reminds me Tiger is a distant 5th in my picks, should they open up again out of Syd or Mel, not Perth.
Air Asia sells insurance for their own connections and own delays, while Tiger says tough - our fault, but you loose anyway (at least untill ACCC tells them this is overly harsh and unfair). Scoot should bypass the bad smell left behind by a ogre manager with partial continious attention.
Just came back on AirAsia with 32kg and another 20Kg seamail(Aussie$30). Their shops did well, and Duty Free at LCCC heaps cheaper than SydAirport ripoff prices.
tha fact thats is LCC with tight ass ticket forfeit conditions. Say $900 return to BKK- YAWN!
Fine - Full service Airlines like Thai, SQ and even QF are in the ball park as BETTER Value.
It may be that they are holding prices high to not get MAS angry.
Management: I smell a sale being lost to Jetstar. Its my perception that intra asia airfares are being sold/added on at MORE than individual bookings. BTW Shops in Aussie retail had the worst 2 weeks ever, but dont know if GFC non-spending is hitting airfare sales - yet.
Also have launched a frequent flyer program - Tune2Big with points called MyBiggies.
Appears very Asian centric and the website is pathetic with limited description of earn / burn rate.
Also don't tell you till midway thru the signup process that there is a 10 MYR (or higher in other currencies eg US$5) signup fee
