Wow looking back 11 years ago when i took my first Airasia flight.I must say they have come a long way and i think they are the best discount airline ive flown - ok maybe jetblue is better.
i'm writing this as im flying from Jakarta to Bangkok and i booked this flight just 6 hours before departure and the price was still less then 200 roundtrip.
That may seem high but consider that its almost the same distance as Los Angeles to New York city and 6 hours before takeoff - not bad
So i board the plane and im the middle seat in the next to last row - i'm almost eating my knees being 6'2 - no elite status here MR C.J. lol ( those who know me know i love my elite status with airlines ) back of the bus MR. C.J.
Then i thought there must be a plan B -- I remember airasia selling seats when checking in so i asked the flight attentant if i could still purchase a extra room seat and she said sure .would you like row 12 or 14 ahhh 14 sounds good .ok bring your bags and ill be back after everyone has broaded
Shortly after takeoff she came by and said that will be 10.00 us dollars or 350 baht - could not believe how cheap the upgrade was
FOOD - being a 4+hour flight i orderedthe asia chicken sandwich and a can of coke and it was 4.00 for the both and it was on par with airplane food
Airasia has come along way from the ticketing and online booking and to able to bring carry ons as they used to be ball busters but i guess that's why the got the BEST DISCOUNT AIRLINE for the 7th year in a row
I TIP MY HAT
This was a fun time in Bali in ubud a hidden gem located in the middle of Bali and it was great traveling with 12stepnomad reader Chaim
I’M coming to you today from 30,000 feet in the air on Copa Airlines. Who is Copa ? CopaAirlines is a Star-alliance partner that is a big player in central and south america and based in Panama city.Panama
I must say if you like flying United ( and i do ) you will love Copa as the planes and seats are just like United
I love being a star-alliance gold as there was only 1 person in the star alliance line.While close to 100 people were trying to check in without status
The big difference between Copa and United is that Copa still serves you a meal and drinks includ alcohol on there flights at no exact costs
Copa airlines gets the thumbs up from 12 step nomad - its like flying United
NOTHIN BUT LOVE N TRAVELS
