why AirAsia is so expensive nowadays?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

For instance, from Cambodia. Not only it's awfully expensive on all routes, but Malaysia AirLines is cheaper on some route - $79 vs 92. Add to that that Malaysia AirLines includes 30 kg baggage

I can't recall when was the last time when I saw at skyscanner AirAsia not being the cheapest one - not on the 1st place.

Because either Air Asia increased their prices or the other airlines lowered their prices

And the fact that there are 20 different dollars and no one seems to indicate which one.

Because they have been around long enough to start to incur the costs that made all airlines more expensive years ago. Keeping good employees, especially good pilots, maintaining aging aircraft and replacing where its needed makes the airline business an expensive investment. See how quick some of the 'cheap' companies come and go, simply because they never made enough to cover some unexpected expense. The national airlines get special help; wasn't Malayasian seriously bankrupt a while ago?

I wasn't referring to an airline's website. I was referring to posters on TV using dollars and assuming we all know the value.

When you have pushed most of the competition out of the game, Then who will be big enough to return? So, you set the prices for what has become no more than bus service, If they could they would have you sitting on the floor.

US, Canada, New Zealand,Australia,Singapore, Hong Kong,Jamaica,Cayman Islands,Botswana,and many others all use a currency called dollar. All are different values. Way off topic so no futher replies.

Air Asia will charge you in about any currency you want. However Euros and US Dollars pop up as your 3rd and 4th choices (their online software does that) . If flying from Thailand  they offer the ticket in Baht, then whatever country your are flying to followed by dollars and Euros. Those are not "loonies" either. No further discussion.
