Air Asia, What A Pain In The A To Book Online

Jump to last reply

I return from a day trip outing in Lebanon to a pleasant surprise when checking my e-mail. I have received approval of my VOA for a trip to Burma. My excitement is diminished a bit by the tedious process of booking my ticket online with Air Asia.

What started out as a US$188 RT ticket ends up by default to US$231. Several selections of the back arrow on my browser and I am back to US$188. I unselect the US$15 check bag fee then cancel the Travel Insurance conveniently chosen for me by the kind people at Air Asia.

Also I decline additional fees to select a seat. I think I can stand to sit anywhere on the airplane for a flight less than two hours. Thinking I am done with fees I am charged another US$6 to pay for my ticket because I do not have an Online Banking account with one of their preferred banks in Vietnam.

What A Pain ….

Air Asia does offer one thing I think I might like which is the ability to purchase in advance an in-flight meal. Although the choices seem appetizing, I am afraid they might charge me a fee to eat my selection.
