Just browsing the AirAsia.com.au website and noticed they have partnered up with optiontown.com, basically you can pay a samll disocunted fee using optiontown and opt for premium/business or first class seat at a great discounted rate….and if on the day there happens to be empty seats in that class then you will get it or else they will refund your $$$ back after 5 days. I just upgraded my seats from Gold Coast to Malaysia for around $100 Aussie dollars. Lets hope i get them!!!
Some info of the airasia website…..
