Prior to the arrival of Air Asia, if a bolehlander wants to experience the sensation of cheap flight for $9.99 (that’s the price to bribe the guard to allow you to go up the elevator), he would need to hurl himself from the 44th floor of Petronas twins’ tower and enjoy the feeling until he hit the ground and died. And yet, some claimed this could still be more enjoyable than flying Air Asia.
Air Asia, is by far the world’s cheapest airline, and the word cheapest is not necessarily restricted to just the price of the fare. One must relate the word “cheapest” in every possible sense – you need to be the bravest of people to enter the cubicles in their planes as the only freshener they used is made from humans. Or the strongest of customers to bear the longest delay, without any food or water – unless you are willing to splurge on airport cuisine. You want cheap, so the service also must be cheap. That is how the airline makes the something called profit.
One must surely marvel at the conveniences that Air Asia has given ordinary bolehlanders who no longer needs to go up the twin towers to experience flight. For the privilege of traveling great distances for so little ringgit, isn’t it worth a few mild discomforts.
Some people are just average, others are just mean.
