    I'll go through the day before, so in the old terminal, but on my way back ten days later I'll go through the new terminal.

    Last year I spent close on 8 hours in the old terminal between flights, that was not a happy experience. I hope the new one is better.

    Excellent news! Look forward to some pics....It is quite behind schedule, so will be interesting to see if it is any more completed than the new Denpasar terminal. Lots of good connections from Australia!......This is going to be the transit terminal of choice into ASIA for many Australians as long as the prices remain BUDGET! At least it has been built out of solid growth need!

    From ......http://www.klia2.info........
    AirAsia Group chairman Tan Sri Tony Fernandes cringes at the thought of an increase in airport charges especially with the cost of building KLIA2 having doubled to RM4 billion from its original plan and after considerable delays.And here comes his stinger: "But if they raise their cost, we die. Most of our market can't afford it."

    Although MAHB assured that charges at KLIA2 would remain the same as LCCT's, it came with a qualifier in that the moratorium on cost increases would only be for a year; beyond that it would be for the government to decide.

    It is this qualifier that's unsettling to AirAsia

    His contention: why build a five-star facility for a budget airline? A budget airline is a budget airline is a budget airline. Period.
    Prominent online columnist G. Guna-segaram added more spice to the KLIA2 saga by questioning the necessity of building such an expensive facility for budget airlines.
    "Our airport planning has been really, really bad," says Gunasegaram.
    He says 16 years after the first Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) began operation, it is still underused while the building of the KLIA2 was delayed until costs ballooned.
    The KLIA completed in 1998 was built at RM10 billion and handled 25.5 million passengers last year or 75% of its design capacity of 35 million while the LCCT which began operations in 2006 and built at a cost of RM108 million or 92 times cheaper handled 21.8 million mostly AirAsia passengers or at 145% capacity utilisation

    Ive flown through the old airport a million times and bunked up in the old hotel just as often.

    People cried because of the size of the rooms but Hey, its a friggin transit hotel and cost piss all really. STFU will ya.

    Anyway I have booked the new hotel at KL 2 for my next trip home in October, payed around $40 on special. Friggin joke compared to a camping sight back in Perth for $40 for a peace of dirt.

    Might be my last time for a while as I'm now going to fly Perth Bali Bangkok. Stay over in Bali for a few weeks , break it up just for a giggle.

    Actually I'm now in Bali for 1 month before heading back up to Bangkok. Hope the Malaysians have done a better job of their airport than the Indonesians as the new Bali airport is an absolute disgrace.

    Quite unbelievable how they could fuk it up so much.

    Anyway, Bali is still brilliant even the new airport is a gong show.

    Well considering the size of the rooms in the Old Tune hotel they could not be any smaller.

    I travel solo so no probs but jeez did people cry on the Net concerning the size of those rooms.

    I never complain about a thing when I was paying such a small amount for a transit hotel so close to the airport.

    Had a great little 7-11 at the old Tune hotel that sold cheap ice cold Guinness.

    sama sama express rents rooms airside in the international part. Its in the area they call Satellite close to Mac Donalds. samasamaexpressklia2.com

    Not to be confused with the samasama at klia.

    Down near the bus terminal capsulecontainer.com rent what looks like a box. You get a locker & a place to shower.

    Both places rent by 3, 6 or 12 hour periods.

    Its about a one mile walk from the train to some international departure gates.
