Airasia Unlimited Pass - Flights from Kuala Lumpur to Australia RM499 (~$181 AUD) + Airport Tax (Malaysia Address/VPN Req.)

1170

Probably good for frequent fliers. Unlimited travel at cost of RM499 @ AUD181. The cost of the ticket is waived. But all other anciliary charge such as airport tax is added on. Still trying to confirm the T&C's if it only applies for flights FROM Malaysia.

AirAsia Unlimited Pass is available to all Malaysia-based AirAsia BIG members on airasia.com/deals or mobile app from 29 February 2020 (1200hrs Local Time) to 7 March 2020 (2359hrs Local Time) only.

Redemptions are only valid for the base fare and do not include ancillaries, add-ons, airport charges, taxes and regulatory fees, or other charges, if any, which shall be payable by the passenger at the time of booking.

    "AirAsia shall have the right to cancel/forfeit such AirAsia Unlimited Pass and the flight bookings, without any liability on the part of AirAsia to such agency, third party or any passenger."

      Actually, AirAsia's right to cancel (as quoted) seems to be more a bit more limited than that - looks like it's to prevent usage of the pass by travel agencies or by someone other than the purchaser of the pass.

      In the T&Cs:

      AirAsia Unlimited Pass
      2. The AirAsia Unlimited Pass is not available to be purchased by travel agencies or any parties other than individual BIG Members. In the event any travel agency or party other than an individual BIG Member purchased the AirAsia Unlimited Pass and subsequently made flight bookings using the AirAsia Unlimited Pass, AirAsia shall have the right to cancel/forfeit such AirAsia Unlimited Pass and the flight bookings, without any liability on the part of AirAsia to such agency, third party or any passenger.

      Also related is:

      3 . The AirAsia Unlimited Pass cannot be sold, bartered, assigned or transferred to another person. Any attempt to transfer the AirAsia Unlimited Pass or book travel using the AirAsia Unlimited Pass for someone other than the holder of the AirAsia Unlimited Pass will result in immediate forfeiture of the AirAsia Unlimited Pass.

      and

      Redeeming the AirAsia Unlimited Pass
      12. Passengers are allowed up to three (3) no-shows. In the event a passenger exceeds the number of no-shows permitted, AirAsia shall have the right to cancel/forfeit their AirAsia Unlimited Pass, without any liability on the part of AirAsia.

      and also:

      General terms
      3. In the event AirAsia detects unusual, irregular, suspicious, unauthorized, fraudulent activity on the purchase or redemption of any AirAsia Unlimited Pass, AirAsi]a shall have the right to cancel/forfeit such AirAsia Unlimited Pass purchased and subsequently cancel any flight booking made using such AirAsia Unlimited Pass without any liability on the part of AirAsia to any passenger.

    In statement says "AirAsia Unlimited Pass is available to all Malaysia-based AirAsia BIG members on airasia.com/deals or mobile app". Therefore unless you live in Malaysia I assume you are ineligible.

    You'd only be comped for one leg of the journey and liable for taxes for one way. So you pay AUD$180 for pay one leg, get other free for one year. Great for those Instagram Influencers on a budget!

    Edit: You can make two flights per day? Will have to check with AA.

    Wouldn't mind visiting KL for Assam Laksa, Mi Goreng and Nasi Lemak on Friday afternoon, then returning back to Australia on Sunday afternoon :D. Only works with a Malaysian Visa of some sort then.

        Of course nothing stops you from being in Sydney months ;)

          That's a good idea. All you'd be liable for is the cost of the flight to Malaysia and then activate the Airasia Unlimited Pass…

          I'm trying to figure out for the team but I can't get through to Support. Proximity to authentic KL and Penang food, and Sushi is making me a little greedy.

            @OzCheapo: Taxes and fees are 172$ for return Syd/Kul
            That’s a lot of sushi 😅

            •  

              @evgpek: Haha I was thinking of visiting Japan via KL. You're right $172 is a lot of sushi especially when it's from Sydney but sometimes you have to leave home to truly appreciate how good it was. ;)

      You'd pay $180 and endure 17 hours in economy just to get some food that you'd be able to order over Uber Eats?

      Sorry but I value my time and this is a complete waste of it.

        It's about the journey man. I once flew to Germany from Brisbane just for the weekend for some sausages and beers (dating a German girl at the time). 24hrs flight + staying for 30hrs + flying back 24hrs. Still fond memories of the journey. We are only young once.

        •  

          @larmesdelhiver gets it but travelling 24 hours for a weekend is rough. Travelling like that tears your body and mind up! Hope it was for Oktoberfest!

          @Icecold5000 - The food isn't the same and the culture is completely different though you're right. If they had Premium Economy/Business, I'd have taken that in a heartbeat.

    Why are the comments about Malaysia-based get ignored?…

  •  

    How do I redeem? has anyone been successful

  •  

    Where to buy? I can't see anything in my app?

  •  

    Fly thru not included. That means for free base fare flights to other AAX destinations you'll need to book Aus to KL then KL and then KL to the next destination. According to terms should also work for BNE to Bangkok Don Muang. Just not sure how strict they are on the Malaysian resident requirement.

    What is AirAsia Unlimited Pass?
    AirAsia Unlimited Pass allows you to redeem unlimited point-to-point long haul AirAsia X flights*. *flights over 4 hours and only with the carrier code D7 (AirAsia X) and XJ (Thai AirAsia X)

    Worked for me. It's available here: https://www.airasia.com/deals

  •  

    Each promo code under the AirAsia Unlimited Pass can be redeemed for round trip flights, subject to seat availability. For example, in the event a passenger purchases a return ticket, if the seat is not available on the return flight, the discounted fare generated via the promo code will only apply to one way of the journey

    So does this mean you book a round trip, then hope that by the end of your trip the plane that gets you back home has a free seat for you? So it's like buying a bus ticket to find out all the seats are taken?

    •  

      No you book return and can see availability at the time of booking. If the return is not available then it'll give you the full price which you don't have to accept

    Scored one by using a Malaysian VPN. Haven’t booked one but did a quick search using the generated promo code, can confirm that it does work for certain AU-KL flights (even for round trip tickets).

  •  

    Ahh my parents travel half the time to KL but they usually buy their flights a year ahead, hopefully this is still around next year 🤔

    Be careful when you are making the payment so as not to get double charged. A payment error page doesn't mean your payment didn't go through.

    I got a payment error page even through my payment had gone through my card. However, after waited a while and got on to the deals page again, I can find a voucher icon right beside the account icon at the top right of the page which contains my voucher code for the flights.

    So be sure to confirm yourself that your payment really did not get through before trying again.

    As per T&Cs it sounds like its for flights departing from KL only..that is you would need to book a return flight departing from KL.

    A few keywords:

    • “The AirAsia Unlimited Pass is available for BIG Members within Malaysia who are at least 12 years of age on the date of departure and the passenger must be the BIG Member who made the booking…” - note for “Malaysian residents” but it does not say how they identify these people. Maybe with IC card?

    • “Upon purchasing the AirAsia Unlimited Pass, the passenger shall have the right to book and fly on AirAsia X and Thai AirAsia X flights to Australia, India, China, Korea and Japan for an unlimited number of times…” - departure flights from KL to destinations.

    • “Redemptions are only valid for Point-to-Point routes and exclude FLY-THRU routes” - this means you can book a return flight from [KL-AU-KL] but cannot book [AU-KL-CN]-KL-AU. Even if you say I’ll just book a return flight from KL but not use the KL-AU leg and depart from AU-KL then it invalidates your return ticket since you did not board the departure leg.

    Possible workaround??:

    • Book a free return flight to the destination of choice provided departing from KL (eg. KL-CN-KL).
    • Book a paid single ticket to KL.
    • Book a free return flight from KL to Australia (eg KL-AU-KL) BUT have the return AU-KL date far in advanced or to another holiday date. Alternatively, you can book another destination from the list (eg. KL-JP-KL). Keep in mind you always need to fly back to KL (hub) to get the next flight out.
    • When promo period is almost up you can either book a paid single flight from KL-AU OR book a free return from KL-AU-KL but forfeit the AU-KL leg to stay in Australia.

      If that's true, could this eventually become like a Dick Smith gift card?

      •  

        Don't think it will end up like Dick Smith. Worst case scenario, they may merge with the national carrier to reduce competition on long-haul routes.

        Its complex!
        In Australia… (very general ideas)

        If a business fails - gift cards holders are treated as unsecured creditors (unlikely to see their money). Administrators may allow use of gift cards, with conditions.
        As a matter of Goodwill, some CC companies offered refunds for DS gift cards, which is not normal practice.

        Money paid directly to airlines
        for flights when an airline fails, is similarly unsecured. Money may be able to be recovered (charged back) if paid by Credit Card. Some travel insurance / CC travel insurance may cover it.

        This is different in that it is a subscription service.
        Failure of a business generally means termination of the subscription. Unlikely to recover any money if business fails

        Air Asia has a backer with deep pockets. But the us$39M first half loss last year & the fact that 30% of seats are sold to travellers from China, may place pressures on the airline now.

        I'm flying with Air Asia to KL in 3 months for $124rtn. I'm not concerned!

        When I paid for a flight with an airline that failed (as I arrived at the airport) - I paid for another flight, & at my destination refused to leave the office of the booking company until I was given a refund! It worked.

        • +2 votes

          Well if a business fails in the first 120 days for a 1 year subscription, I'm pretty sure you can get a partial chargeback (e.g. fails after 90 days, would expect a (365-90)/365 = 75% pro-rata refund), because you didn't get the service you paid for.

          Around 120 days though is the time limit on credit card chargebacks. So if a business failed say at 150 days, you probably would not get anything back.

    I m not eligible to purchase but not really disappointed if the deal comes with too many conditions. A few days ago AA had a 3-day flash sale on selective routes and I managed to get a MEL-KUL-MEL base fare n taxes for $145. Minus the taxes, the base fare is less than A$20.

    Could have easily book a few trips but don't have the extra money for the unnecessary holiday. No need to pay MR499 for 'unlimited' pass. If the air travel demand does not pick up soon, I can expect a repeat of similar bargain in the next 6 months.

        Bought $124 Gold Coast - KL return:

        1x Guest(s) 3.00
        BIG Member Discount -3.00
        Airport Tax 80.00
        Passenger Service Charge 18.00
        Malaysia Departure Levy 7.00
        RSC 0.35
        Arrival Tax 19.00
        Subtotal 124.35 AUD

        Using this Pass would save nothing on that return flight!
        So can be better to look out for good sales👍
