Just had the email, but no details, yet…
I won't fly with them again unless they get back to their old sale prices. I flew countless times with them for $250 return all in including taxes and bags.
It's been around double that recently. When you consider the AUD is so much stronger than it was a few years ago, that makes it even worse. When the AUD goes down in the future it could get even worse…
They still do this. Their last sale I was tempted to fly ex GC for $261 return (but the missus chucked a fit as we're saving for the wedding but we'll likely fly with them for my bucks in a years time). The trick is to search for the flights one way not return.
A good site to 'research' during sales is http://www.airasiaplus.com it'll come up with 15 days worth of flights.
$250 airfares is not sustainable for ANY airlines so its unlikely or at least very rare to get sale fares hitting that mark again. Even $300-500 airfares are great still when you think of it historically.
Even then you need to book a year in advance for those sorts of prices. How ever the business model seems to be (buy early and cheaply) it seems to work for them.
It's not easy!
It's only for the first ticket buyers. Of course, the average price has got to be much higher.
It's not about what is the 'right' price. I have a price I'm willing to pay and won't pay above this. Nobody can tell me I'm right or wrong.
Good luck getting a low price!
I think (and hope) that this sale is for the short haul flights. About a month ago they released long haul flights for next year. I booked KL to Gold Coast for August (long haul) and now need Phuket to KL (short haul) to complete the journey. I booked Gold Coast to KL to Phuket in, I think, June this year. Will be heaps cheaper than any other airline.
I hope it's for all flights……
Short haul flights are much cheaper normally. Around $50 a flight if you book early. $100 if you book late.
Getting out of Aus is the hard bit (unless you live in Perth or Darwin.)
Free seats it's saying now. Let's see….
That would beat the 3 cents flight I got from KL to Phuket earlier this year.
Getting to Asia is the expensive bit
