Just interested to know, what’re your experienced with budget airlines?
Being in Singapore, everything is about money. I rarely fly with good airlines, and when I go on 1-3 hr flights, a cheap one does the job.
And it’s none other than AirAsia.
After flying with them numerous times, I think I can share my experiences here.
So one June, I was flying to KUL from SIN. My first time on AirAsia.
I entered the small A320, and that was my first impression of AirAsia.
Black seats, cramped space, and a football club livery.
After putting my luggage overhead, I went to sit on my assigned seat.
It was just small.
The moment we took off some considerate person’s toddler started screaming that the plane had taken off.
And I’ll fast-forward a bit.
15 minutes after takeoff. I stretched my legs and arms.
This Malay man in front of me got REAL mad. He gave me a dirty face that’s stuck with me forever. If he had a chance he’d surely throw me 33,000 ft to my death. I kept quiet.
I took the flight magazine out to take a look. They were advertising their flights from KUL. As if I’d do a 3-hour transit before going to BKK.
The plane then descended into KUL. The plane touched down in a really shaky landing.
The toddler made a fuss again.
To make the long story short, the flight of 45 mins was tiring.
And then I realised that KUL was nowhere near the city. 1 hour car ride easily.
Oh well, these things happen…
