AirAsia Airline - The Guide To Fly With 'Em

What’s up, readers! It’s a beautiful day to write something, ain’t it? Well, while I was looking outside and thinking “What should I write today?”, I saw a plane crossing the sky in my view. It was like gazillion miles away, I wouldn’t know what airline was it. Then, it hits me. Just recently Tony Fernandes, you know, the dude that revolutionize low-cost carrier in Malaysia, yeah, that guy. He releases his own book called the Flying High: My Story. I’d figured, what the heck? Let’s just write about his first baby, AirAsia Airline for a change. I’m not an avid fan or anything, I just thought since it’s also towards the end of the year, you might be interested to know some stuff about local airlines when you plan your travelling, right? Who knows? Maybe it’ll help you have a clear information about airlines and in my entry, the AirAsia Airline of course. Firstly, where you can find the airline besides its own official website? Well, you can check out Traveloka. I saw their ad the other day and the name just popped into my head. They have deals for AirAsia airline booking that maybe you might be interested in. Anyways, let’s not jump the gun on the story here and let’s go back and see what AirAsia is all about before we start talking about flight booking.


Let’s Check-In

AirAsia is all about making things easy for its passengers. Especially in this modern technology era, boarding pass can be a pain if the traditional restrictions are in place. Now, AirAsia gives you the liberty to print and reprint your boarding pass online OR have a PDF copy of it sent to your e-mail. If you are a smartphone user, the system will give you a scannable barcode for your boarding pass directly on your phone. I don’t know about you, but that has “convenience” written all over it.

It’s All About The Baggage

Imagine when you are planning a mega vacation trip overseas and you are stuck with the question of how the whole baggage deal is with AirAsia. Here’s a little exposure for you on that matter. For carry-on baggage, you can bring in one carry-on luggage plus one laptop bag/handbag onboard. Get your measurement tape out because the maximum dimension for carry-ons is 14” in height, 22” in length and 10” in width, plus it cannot weigh more than 7 kg. Long story short, it has to be able to fit in the overhead compartments or underneath the seat in front of you. Next is the checked baggage where all the magic happens. The weight usually differs depending on your destination, but generally, it must be less than 32 kg. The baggage needs to be checked in no later than 45 minutes before flight departure so, it is wise to not giddy around if you’re bringing a baggage with you.

To Seat or Not To Seat

Regardless if it’s a 2-hours or a 14-hour flight, one would kill for the best seat. Finding the best seat in a plane is like two gladiators battling in the Colosseum. Aside from wishing you will not end up next to a very annoying passenger, the location of the seat itself plays important role in determining how you sum up your travelling experience. Good thing AirAsia have the pre-arranged seating all set up for you. Yep, you read it correctly. You can now pick your own seat beforehand. I did some digging and found that there are sections in the plane that you can keep a lookout for, like from rows 7 to 14 are called the “quiet zone”, the ones by the emergency exits and called the “hot seats” (my fav!) and “premium flatbed” which is also my fav. Who doesn’t want extra legroom?

Review Shows The Verdict

If you haven’t noticed, what we decide to depend mostly on what we read, and that is reviews. You can name anything, whether it’s movies, place to eat, what to eat, a place to go and so on and so forth. So, maybe the amount of research I spent on AirAsia’s review might differ from others, but this is my findings and feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below too if you have any. We’re all about civilised information sharing. So, based on what I’ve read about this airline, the reviews ain’t too shabby. Of course, there are some weaknesses here and there - not surprising since it’s pretty normal, but compared to the upper hand of things, AirAsia did well for themselves. It’s the top low-cost carrier in Malaysia and its efficiency are well-praised. That says something, right?

Anyways, that’s about it for today. My fingers need its rest. All in all, I hope today’s entry entertain or benefit you in some way. You are always encouraged to do your own research because I skipped some stuff too during this write-up. There is clearly other stuff that you will find interesting when you are dealing with AirAsia. Have fun researching! Have fun travelling!

  3. I prefer to check in my luggage rather than hand carry or carry on as i find it very cumbersome to move my luggage in the narrow passage way in the plane and troublesome to lift the luggage to put in the compartment lol

  4. For budget airlines, I rather save money and time by not checking in. Traveling light gets me out of airport really fast after stamping passport.
