Im trying to find the most cost effective way of getting my inlaws from SGN - ADL.

Originally i was going to book them reward economny tickets using VFF points on SA but there appears no availiability for that day. Flexability is not great as its the day after a 2 week tour and MIL needs to be back for work on the monday (most unfortunate).

Qantas do a 3 legged flight via BNE which is $360 odd in economy
Singapore outright is $700ish

I then looked up air asia..

They have a D7 flight with lie flat business for just over $500 via KUL. If i book 2 pax at once its $1600 so will book them at the same time on 2 devices instead. My inlaws have never flown business so their expectations would be low. In fact i wprobably would tell them it was business until they got their boarding pass.

This will be my most preferred option but i dont know a great deal about Air Asia / Air AsiaX.
Do they change flight times / planes / cancel flights at all?

Any significant negative reports from them or any other better option known?

I only have VFF points at the moment having just started a citi MR account to try and cover some holes.

TIA.

I have been on D7 between PER and KUL. It is an angled flat bed, but with a very basic Economy meal.

I couldn't give you any idea on their reliability, but a colleague at work had two KUL-PER flights cancelled on them prior to leaving (Early KUL-PER flight canned, moved onto the later flight, that also was canned, so had their holiday in KUL extended by a day courtesy of D7). I couldn't tell you if this is a regular occurence or not.

Well that was short lived! Purchased the first ticket at $610 after it went up again. Go to hit purchase for the second ticket and it's $1900 for the ticket!!!

They are going to be flying economy with SA I think!

Normally if two tickets is significantly more than 2 x one ticket, it's because there's only one ticket in a cheap bucket available, not because there's a penalty for booking for two people.
