AirAsia - Dropping Phuket Penang flights

Recommended Posts

Looks like Air Asia are dropping flights between Phuket and Penang later this month. Wife and I have used it a couple of times and it was pretty full.

They also dropped their daily Chiang Mai to Saigon at the end of the year.

Was talking to an AirAsia stewardess over dinner in Hanoi this weekend, and she said they're not only dropping routes but cancelling flights at short notice if not enough passengers. My 2nd Oct flight to Hanoi was dropped at the last minute and changed to 3rd Oct. The flight back was more than half empty.

 

Like many airlines, they appear to be in trouble.

Or maybe it's just good business sense.

You "gave up" 3 years ago?

They have simply priced themselves out of the market. Low cost means low cost and they no longer are. Plus trying to get rid of baggage, seats, priority boarding and insurance is a pain in the ass on their site. I gave up 3 years ago and know many who feel the same...

Another bit of  .......

I asked to sit as near to the front as possible when I checked in, girl at the desk says they aren't allowed to assign seats any more, unless I pay extra it's decided by the computer. So the back 1/3 of the plane is packed, and there's only 5 people sitting in the front 18 rows. Madness!

Malaysians have to pay a staggering 40% more for the same amount of baht in the last 3 years.

I'm surprised they didn't bolt earlier.

So 4k incl taxes to the Gold Coast is only AUD 200.. Isn't that dirt cheap if flight from BKK??

It's clear to me that Air Asia are getting desperate for passengers. I receive emails from them almost daily offering deals, some up to 70% off. I for one gave up flying them when I have luggage because of their absurd check-in procedure where you have to queue once to print out a baggage tag and then queue a second time to hand the bag in at the check-in desk. What the hell is that all about?
