    Airasia sale for members.

    Today at 2.00AM Airasia opened booking for their members.

    I'm all over these sales and have flights all over Thailand Booked for 100 Baht, I pay by Credit card which costs 96 Baht so end up with a fare of 196 Baht.

    This is 7 KG carry on, if you want to take more book it later on line, I do this.

    I've just booked two tickets to Surattani for 196 Baht each and will now book flights up to Udon. I use these cheap tickets to get me somewhere then rent a car, go touring and finish back in Bangkok.

    This sale is for flights March 1 St - 29TH Oct 2016.

    I book em up, if not used no big deal, just lose the 196 Baht.

    Cost me that to open the door of a Taxi in Perth.

    Get on board, finishes Tomorrow.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Yep,

    Ain't been back to Samui for a few years, this is a good chance to get it on.

    Heaps of great spots on Samui if one has wheels to get around to them, I'll rent a car at the Airport and go touring.

    Just booked return flights back to Bangkok from Surat for 196 Baht. Dump the car back at the Airport and fly home.

    Lookin at the Map right now for another North tour.

    I've already booked tickets for the South in the last sale, that included Hat-Yai and Krabi, again at 196 Baht all up.

    So in 2016 I'm flying virtually every month for 196 Baht, some nice road trips coming up.

    But hey, Check this shit out.

    I have just booked flights back to Bangkok from Udon-Thani in July for 146 Baht that's nuts huh.

    I'll fly up, grab a car and tour the north East for 9 days all along the Mekong .

    Drop in to see Noodles, go see Norton and bunk up in Baldricks gaff at Sangkha.

    On ya Baldrick, thanks for the offer.

    Some real friendly guys on this form.

    Love Air-Asia.

    On the last sale I picked up two fares KL to Perth one way for $36 each.

    Keep on top of this stuff and the offers are sensational.

    For me the appeal is it's a great spot to launch a road trip heading back to Bangkok.

    Some really nice places in the South away from the fighting of course.

    I have a couple of friends who work in the hotel industry. They have swore never to use Air Asia ever again. Apparently they were at Don mueang airport and had a couple of kilos of extra baggage and were told loudly and abruptly to "STAND THERE" and let everyone else past. They got a bit peeved with that and told the staff if they're getting stopped they can weigh everyone else's bag, which they did, making the plane late.
    The one also had Tony Fernandez personal email but got no reply.

    Mate, this is how it works on AirAsia and all other Budget Airlines.

    They give you 7 kilo free walk on luggage. If you are over 7 kilo you must pay for it on line or pay a shit load in excess at the gate if caught out.

    Some Muppets front up with over 7 Kilo and get hit up for some very hefty Excess fees. They then crack the shits and have a big cry when handing over their wallet.

    They cause a big scene when it was their fault by not paying up front on the web sight. It's very fookin clear about the weight limits when booking.

    These people fookin shit me, I despise them intensely.

    They buy the flight for fuk all, don't pay the money up front for their luggage and then cry like bitches when caught out.

    If you go over the 7 Kilo carry on and get busted then it's stiff shit innit.

    Na, fuk Em.

    Hate to dish it up to your mates Dill but Tony would of just deleted the Email as a waste of his time.

    Just another couple Muppets wanting to fly cheap and not pay for their excess luggage.

    Now further more regards the Luggage issue.

    I have not booked luggage in my tickets so this is how I will do it.

    The Handbag and I will share one check in Bag and both have 7 Kilo carry on.

    So I will buy on line 20 kg baggage allowance and throw all our clothes and shit for a ten day trip in that.

    Cost me $20 or something .

    It's not that fookin hard to work out.

    Fly AirAsia frequently. Plenty of fine print so best read it. When booking be sure to unclick the extra baggage weight and insurance. I always do over the counter payment. 30 baht as I recall. Pay at your nearest 7/11.

    Mate,

    I have been with them from the get go and have had untold trips where I have paid taxes only.

    Actually, I was one of their first customers out of Perth to Kl, Taxes only again.

    On the flights alone from Perth to KL they have Saved me a freaking fortune in flights.

    The Web sight for anyone who can read is quite simple to navigate, very little fine print with easy selections.

    These Muppets who get banged up for excess luggage have zero excuse.

    it's a daft rule that one Terry, a stealth tax.

    You can be stopped with half a kilo over and have to chuck some of your clothes away or be hit with some ridiculous fine.

    Then some tosser will come past you with a fukkin great big coat and laptop bag and hIs 7kg case, which is bigger than the bastard case you are stood there unpacking, then the arsehole will beat you onto the plane and take up all your space in the overhead luggage compartment with his 3 wanking items and be sat there with both his cunting arms on the armrests.

    Well, it's not a stealth tax and it's not a fine.

    It's a charge for excess luggage which every airline on the planet can Impose if the traveler goes over his limit. Airlines make a shit load out of duffers exceeding their weight limit.

    The trick is to play their game by playing within their rules.

    keep the carry on Bag to 7KG and just carry all your other shit.

    I travel very regular and it's rare for me to see Carry on being weighed but things are changing.

    Regards the issue you raised regards tossers carrying on a stack of shit there have been plenty of complaints regards them taking up over head locker space.

    Every time I fly I see some turd with a heap of stuff.

    Jetstar in Australia have started weighing all carry on and enforcing the 7 Kilo limit where as Airasia are slack about it.

    Your mates were just unlucky.

    That said, I never go over the limit simply because I do not want to be banged up with huge excess fees.

    Weight the bag before heading of to the Airport is on the smart money.
