Air Asia, Singapore
Well if you want to fly budget airlines then I think you should try JetStarAsia / Value Air. Its not as cheap as AirAsia but you treated to nice friendly staff and you fly in a descent plane. I flew from Singapore to Bali and I enjoyed the flight. They served a light meal as well and I guess I never had a problem with delayed flights.
An Asian budget airline is Air Asia.
On certain routes,
they have some amazing prices.
Such as, from KL to Laos.
The earlier you book,
the better chance you have
to get a cheaper rate.
This is a no frills airline,
so don’t expect any blankets,
or good food,
if good food exists on any airline.
If you’re a particular healthy eater,
forget bringing your own food on board.
It is simply not allowed.
So make sure the tummy is full before hand,
or wait it out till you arrive to your destination.
Rates are also cheaper by booking on line,
rather than going directly to their office.
They do warn at check in,
not to place any valuable inside of your suitcase,
which is why I have repeatedly advised,
no matter what, put a lock on your bag.
Lost baggage does and has occurred
on some of their flights.
And I have heard through others of several complaints,
but that comes with the budget price
along with the high traffic
of flying around the world.
We flew Air Asia from Singapore to Bangkok. The plane was OLD, The seats were the SMALLEST we have ever sat in. The legroom was practically non existant. The plane was absolutely FILTHY. The computer was down at check in. The plane was much more than an hour late departing. They have a limit on checked baggage weight of 15 kilo(about 32 pounds) and a limit of carryon of about 7 kilo (about 15 pounds). There is no seating assignment and no control over boarding, it's every man for himself once they open the gate and the people were like stampeding cattle. The red carpet advertised on the web site is of the old Chinese restaurant variety in the states. Yes, the seats are leather, what there is to them. The yummy snacks (at a price) consisted of peanuts and ginger ale.
The price of the flight was cheap, so if that makes you happy, go for it. We would not fly Air Asia again at any price. Not a warm fuzzy feeling...definitely not a SAFE feeling.
Many european tourists are going to Thailand on their holidays. And if already being in Bangkok you can get very cheap and easy to Singapore by Air Asia. A ticket can cost from about 30 SGD, and even though Air Asia is a typical low fare airline, it's ok since the flight is quite short.
