    crazy! syd to Kl is about $600 return same dates, so if you fly onto Langkawi its cheaper… wonder if i can just get off at KL and not check in the last leg
    came up to $230 return syd to langkawi with luggage in sept

    • +2 votes

      $132 return SYD to Langkawi (no bags, no food) is INSANE

      •  

        yeh checked baggage came up at $49 each way, so $98 total for 20kg

        •  

          remember tho there are 4 flights, so $25 each flight.
          Just travel light!

      The trip there should be fine. But if there is a multi hop itinerary and you don't show up to the first airport, at least some airlines will cancel the whole trip for you.

    I have one question..

    can we book Sydney to Phuket and get down at Kuala Lumpur to catch another flight to dubai or london?

    Regards

      cant see why not, but would be easier to do penang or langkawi cos they're closer

      •  

        Thanks.

        I tried to get answer from chat but cant wait 99 mins :)

        "One of our representatives will be with you shortly. You are number 88 in the queue. Your wait time will be approximately 99 minute(s). Thank you for your patience."

    •  

      I'm also curious to know if the check in staff will tags your bags to only go to Kuala Lumpur instead of Phuket.
      Don't forget, depending on which airline you want to fly to Dubai or London, you might have to change airports as well since air asia fly to the low cost terminal.

      • +1 vote

        airasia is flying from KLIA2 now, not LCCT.

        •  

          Correct, but you'll almost certainly have to change terminal. Only Tiger, Cebu Pacific, Malindo and AirAsia fly out of KLIA2 and none of them fly to Europe. Although AirAsia are supposedly restarting flights to LHR soon.

      it's a 'fly-thru'. if you have checked baggage then you can't collect your bag in kl

        Dec 2012 booked Air Asia flight from Mel-Kul-Sin. It was cheaper than Mel-Kul. At Melbourne airport I told Air Asia staff that we will not be going to Singapore as we want to explore KL. The lady tagged baggage Mel-KL.

    •  

      Not the best solution but fly to a major airport like HCM and fly to Europe from there so you don't have to stuff around.

  •  

    crazy prices! cheap

  •  

    Crazy prices. I was searching as well and found Perth-Penang or Langkawi return $109.

    Wonder whether genuine prices or they made a mistake with the return prices.

    I managed to get 8 of us on the same flights! Awesome deal. Book now, think later.

  •  

    must.. not.. book..

  •  

    Guys, dumb question but let's say I want to go to KL right, I've seen that flights go to Penang, through KL.

    So can I just book a ticket for penang, but purposely "miss the connection" flight from KL to Penang? Same deal coming back, the plane will go from Penang to KL then back to Aus. Can I just catch the connecting plane from KL lol

    • +1 vote

      There would be a few issues that I could see!

      • Baggage being tagged through to the end on the outbound (no problem if carry-on only).
      • it is possible to short check your baggage (check it only through to KUL) - however once you missed a flight that would cancel the rest of your ticket
      • even if you booked two one-ways, no chance you could pick up the return leg once your first segment has started.
    • +1 vote

      On the outbound flight to Penang, you could miss the connection…

      But if you do not board your flight in Penang to KL all remaining legs will be cancelled and you will forfeit all remaining fare value to AUS.

      •  

        Can you cancel a leg via customer service?

        • +1 vote

          In the online travel group i work for, with not taking legs, its classed as a change. You have to pay change fees and any fare on tax difference, and seeing that this sale is sold out it would be at full price now. Not sure if Air Asia have the same rules are premium carriers however.

          I don't really understand it myself, people call up wanting to not take some flights in the booking but still have to pay a lot extra.

          You'd think the airline would be happy that they could resell that empty seat to someone else and let you cancel it out of the booking.

    • +1 vote

      You could possibly try booking two one way tickets that way they wouldn't cancel your return ticket.

      • +1 vote

        This would only work if the passenger is going to fly home from Penang, Phuket etc

        You cant have a ticket from Penang - KL - Australia and just check in at KL

  •  

    Any Jetstar price beat options? :)

    • +4 votes

      Unfortunately not. Jetstar's policy clearly states it will only price beat flights that are direct & one way. All these are via KL.

        Thanks!! You know all the fine print!! :)

  •  

    FWIW out of perth you would want to find a half decent airport hotel to stay at - so you will need to factor that in

      I just got back from Langkawi flying with them from Melb and both flights there and back on the MEL - KL leg were pretty much full.

      • +3 votes

        My recent flight from KL to SYD was also full.

      • +1 vote

        Yeah, they're actually doing pretty well with Australia recently, so much so they're looking at adding an extra daily flight SYD-KUL. Also potential Aus-NZ flights, which could be interesting.

    • +2 votes

      Air Asia regularly have massive sales like this.

      With the growth they are experiencing and in all my flights with them not one has been less than 75% full I can safely say they are not having any issue filling their planes.

    AirAsia X stalls on flight refunds for cancelled Adelaide to Kuala Lumpur route

    Adelaide travellers left high and dry when AirAsia X cancelled all its South Australian flights in January are still chasing refunds more than three months later.

    Earlier this year, hundreds of Kuala Lumpur passengers from Victoria were left chasing refunds after the carrier sold tickets for a direct flight between Melbourne and Bali late last year without having permission to fly the route.

    The flight instead had to be rerouted through Kuala Lumpur, adding an extra 14 hours to what was going to be a five-and-a-half hour trip, as well as accommodation costs.

    A spokesperson for consumer group Choice described it as "misleading conduct".

      following the crash of flight QZ8501, the government & media around the world dig through what happens to AirAsia in Indonesia, and they found that the Indonesian operate AirAsia(not the Malaysian AirAsia) tend to bribe the Air Control & fly some routes(those in Indonesia) such as "Melb to Bali" route almost everyday, while the government issued licence which allow them to only fly on certain days.

      if you think of it, and if you know how corruptions work at Asian countries such as Indonesia, it's not so hard to understand why the flights got cancelled!

      it's not like AirAsia purposely "misleading" you & take your money, they wanted to offer that route too!

      •  

        Bribe the Air Control? You do know that the governing body for ATC is a global one? If that happens on a daily basis it would be a logistical nightmare. We are not talking about sending off extra bush planes - these are all logged flights because there can be hundreds of planes in the air at the same time in the same geographic region.

        What happened was the paperwork lagged behind Ops, meaning they had rights to the route(that were planned). But sure let the media spin educate you on aviation matters.

        There maybe shortfalls in terms of operational processes but this is not one of them.
