Flying on Air Asia


There are no seats number so passengers have to queue up before the flight takes off. If you pay an extra RM10, you will be given priority. Otherwise, you can do what we did. We hang around where we expect the queue to start and be the first in line. 😛 Yayaya, we are the kiasu family.


For the domestic flights (I don’t know about overseas flights), there are no adult and child fare. There is only one type of fare. Can’t complain about the seats though. Don’t expect stewardess giving out blankets or even those head liners. It is all basic.


Our flight was a three hours flight. No meals nor drinks are included in the airfare. But they serve some basic foods like nasi lemak which smells good and costs RM8. We ordered one just for the sake of checking out what’s inside. Small portion but not bad lah…. (for RM2 you can get from the warong makcik)  Anyway, we smuggled a bit of sweets for the kids though they said no outside foods allowed. You do not want someone’s small kid to scream through the flight, do you? But anyway, they do sell some candies and chocs, so you can get them on air.


Overall, the price of the drinks and foods are not exorbitant. Reasonably priced.

We had a pleasant trip from Penang to Kota Kinabalu and back again. Our flight took off early and reached the destination 25 minutes early.

The total return fare for six person from Penang to KK was about RM4,600. This is because we booked 2 days before departure. We are always the last-minute traveler. Do take advantage of Air Asia cheap flights and book in advance if you have the flexibility to travel. Real bargain.

And no, this is not sponsored by Air Asia.
