        wow carwashhair.. so judgemental! Not everyone can afford to fly 1st class Emirates or Qantas on their honeymoon!

        I'm ekto's fiancee - So I would also like an ozbargain medal >_<

        Do you know how expensive weddings are? We're ozbargaining the shit out of everything we can (Y)

        •  

          Yep, getting married in 3 mths. Trying to get a wedding for 150 guests done for a $10K budget means we will owe a lot of friends a lot of favours :/

          But respect to you guys and your determination to get a honeymoon in no matter what - that dedication will see you have a great wedding and honeymoon whatever the weather, plane carrier or destination! :D

          Why not give the Airlines a call? For all you know,you may get to charter your own plane.

      I recon if you jump online now and check the prices for identical flights you'll see prices have actually gone up.

      This thing aint a sale, it's dodgy marketing.

      •  

        I haven't seen return tix for that price from Melb for quite a while. Seems like a good deal for Melb only??

  • +5 votes

    Something shifty here… Was only looking on Sat night at going to Malaysia for the MotoGP. Got on Air Asia site and looked at the tickets. $239 there and $208 back. Now, even with the 20% off, it's $259 and $218….

    Is Air Asia run by Kogan by any chance??

    • +2 votes

      Totally agree. Was checking for flights to Japan with them just yesterday. Tickets one way were about $285. Just checked now and the same flight has been jacked up to $394, even after the discount.

      Don't fall for this guys. This is so dodgy! Australia has laws against this don't we?

    •  

      Could not agree more.
      I have flown AirAisa twice now from Melb to KL for the Sepang MotoGP (last year and year before)
      Was $167 Melb to KL and $67 KL to Melb using the Midnight Sale Deal only 1 month prior to the race.
      The next year it was slightly more expensive, but still cheaper than what has been quoted above.

    • +1 vote

      Very dodgy. I was looking at flights to Japan and Indonesia just yesterday, and the dates that I was looking at in September have each gone up around $100 per leg.

      •  

        Another case here, was looking to add Kualu Lumpur - Bangkok return yesterday at around $80 return yesterday now $123 or over 50% more! no deal.

  • +2 votes

    the fare is exactly the same as what I saw last week for the same date range (late july, early august). F U Air Asia and your bogus sales :(

  •  

    So all these 15 upvotes here, has any of these 15 votes actually purchased a ticket and think it is a deal? If so, please post the price.

    • +2 votes

      I upvoted because the prices are actually good. Cheaper than the recent jetstar sale price and better dates, too.

      •  

        As you could see from other comments, fare after 20% off are actually still higher than its normal price.

    • +1 vote

      I won't downvote the deal cause it is an advertised 'sale' but unfortunately not really a bargain (from what I've seen).

  •  

    Is this bullshit ??? Because AirAsia just annouced 1-2 months ago that the flights from Sydney/Melb to Bali are not operational anymore since Sept ???

    A friend of mine got wedding there had to cancel everything

      This is already mentioned in the post.

  • +3 votes

    I've been checking almost daily for a few months waiting for a good fare OOL-KUL. I can confirm that the prices with the 20% off are actually higher than the ones I've been looking at without the sale. Perhaps Air Asia are raising their prices and trying to cover it with a distracting sale.

    2106? Discount of the century

  • +12 votes

    I booked return flight from SYD > COL two weeks ago and paid $666 for September. Punched in the exact same flight dates and works out to be $750. The return flight did not have the discount but even if there was a discount it was still the same price as I paid.

    There’s no bargain here. It looks as though this is just a marketing ploy by Air Asia deceiving it’s customers. Poor form.

      Does not exactly equal a negative vote on ozbargain! Is it cheaper elsewhere? No.

        Yes it does.

          Appropriate uses of negative vote

          Cheaper price elsewhere
          Mention store or URL and price making sure to include shipping.
          Defective product
          The product has been recalled
          Major issue with product in that it doesn't work the way it should.
          Major issue with retailer
          Didn't receive previous purchase. Example
          Shipping time exceeding expected wait. Example

          I can't see it here.

          I agree it makes sense if prices have been jacked up to neg a deal, but if Im part of a forum I play by its rules.

      What dates are you flying in September? Did you see the block-out dates in the post?

      Discount not available during peak period 9th Sept to 19th Sept, and 24th Sept to 11th Oct.

      • +1 vote

        I did. 1st Sept to 18th Sept. Discount applied for first flights but the return flights did not have the discount. Even if the discount applied for the return it worked out to be the same price as I paid two weeks ago.

    As everyone mentioned above I was looking for flights to Langkawi from Gold Coast late July, it was $270 going and $350 back, now prices are up and after the "discount" its $295 and $400!!! BS!

    they jacked up the prices before the sale.

    The route I was looking at is now 20% cheaper however some flights have gone up…you could say this is because tickets were sold due to demand but how do you really know?

  • +1 vote

    KUL-SYD is definitely cheaper compared to the past few days (600MYR vs 710MYR) albeit less than the advertised 20% off.

  •  

    I have been waiting to book a few flights that Ive been watching, all international legs are now $20+ more expensive and domestic legs are $12 more :(

  •  

    Some great direct return fares to Bali before they pull the pin on this route in September.

    Ex Syd? or Ex Mel? or Both?

  •  

    When i was booking international in a non sale period, i noticed the price changes about every 48 hours and does this to 3 different price points. Had to wait a week for it to be the cheapest

  • +1 vote

    Definitely more expensive. It's basically $200 KL->Syd any day of the week, has been for the past year (not a promo, everyday fare). Now they're all $250 odd.

    Super savings!!

    I do like AirAsia mostly though:
    - Mostly low cost. Have had a number of winners (6 hr flights for $60, 7 hrs for $100) but a few losers ($200 for 3 hr flight). Though they were still cheaper than everyone else.
    - Cheap meals. Can easily get 2 meals and buy snacks on board and barely a dent. Scoot for example is $20/meal so on an 8 hr flight * 2 people you end up with no change out of $100 each way.
    - Can miss any flight or connection no worries
    - Relatively on-time compared with cheap rivals

      What do you mean by this?

      • +1 vote

        Most airlines have a cry if you beat their pricing and cancel all your flights.

        For example, Syd-mel-Perth may be $100 but Syd to mel is $150 return, so you just buy thr Perth flight and get off and on half way. They'll cancel all your flights so you won't be returning.

        Another example may be you're flying say, mel to Syd then to Perth (all legit). You're sick and miss the Syd flight, so you grab a flight the early next day to make the connection. You rock up to find your Perth flight is cancelled.

        AirAsia don't do this BS. For example I was in Vietnam, change of plan went to Taiwan also. I have 2x flight this week to KL, then flights after. I won't be making the original Vietnam flight to KL. They're not just going to wipe all my next flights from under me.

        It's one of those so utterly ridiculous it should be illegal things, which only works because everyone is in on it, so there is no "well vote with your wallet then!".

        •  

          Oh I know exactly what you're talking about then. Commonly known as "hidden city ticketing".

          I thought you meant if you were to miss a connecting flight that you had booked on two separate bookings, they would just put you on the next flight without charge (which would be awesome in itself).

          Do you speak from experience btw? I actually find it incredible that they don't cancel all your flights, although I absolutely agree it's brilliant that they don't. Do you have a particular resource of method of finding these fares? I've tried using skiplagged but I haven't found much luck.

        •  

          @illumination: I've only missed 1 flight which had no subsequent. I've had a number of AirAsia flights where I changed plans.

          Most are totally legit. For example, you decide to stay an extra 2 days in a city. You book a new flight to make your other one. Because your original wasn't boarded airline wipes every flight you have. It should be illegal.

          Imagine if you booked a Hotel in Brisbane for 3 days, then Sydney for 5 days. You don't show for the first night in Brisbane so they wipe your entire itinerary with 0 compensation and keep the payment. Absolute ****.

  •  

    Yeah I'll throw my hat in the ring too for flights I was looking at last week are now more expensive with the sale. Luckily I already bought my tickets and have just been following the fares out of curiosity.

    cant do a price beat with Jetstar anymore since they dont do direct anymore

      Bali is direct, and you can get Melb Bali return for $146 with pricebeat.

      •  

        oops you are right, they are doing a fire sale before they pull the direct flight to bali

  • +3 votes

    For anyone who has not read the link - 20% off is applicable to base fares only.

  •  

    I wonder how much these budget SE Asian airlines are loosing? I'm not surprised they are pulling the pin on so many routes. Cebu Pacific had fares from Sydney to Manila return for $143 a while back. I can't imagine that these kind of prices can be maintained in the long term. And it seems like most of the amazing flight deals are now to America and Europe rather than Asia.

    •  

      @davelarz, I agree……but they seem to keep going. For AirAsia SALE flights originating in Kuala Lumpur they can be unbelievably cheap. Eg One way Econ. fares Kul - Syd $100 - $115!!

  •  

    Why are they pulling the pin on the route?

    •  

      I don't know the exact reason/s why they are pulling the pin on Melbourne/Sydney to Bali but I imagine it's not sustainable at such low prices.

    Thanks a ton TA.
    Right in time when am planning for a short international vacation next month.

    Managed to find cheapest fare from SYDNEY to BALI(99 onward[21/08] and 66 return[25/08])

    Successfully got a 10% Price beat with Jetstar @ 148.5 per person Sydney to Bali Return.

    •  

      How did u managed to get price match on return fare with jetstar? I thought you can only do it in one way.

      •  

        not sure… this is the first time i got a price beat with them.
        T&C doesn't specify anywhere that it needs to be one way only

        •  

          it does say on T&C must be direct and one way. I don't know how u did it. nice try I guess

  •  

    Been thinking of booking a one way for Perth to Taipei at $209 for a week and now it's $298 after their "20% discount"…
