Procrastination costs me RM120

June 13, 2006 at 11:15 p06 (Travel)

I am indulging myself in some Ipoh old world charm come early next month. The old ACS gang and some x-MGS girls are getting together for a gathering at Destress on 8 July. Last count…about 80 of us. If any of you guys and gals out there who were from ACS/MGS cohort of '83 (Form 6), please don't feel shy… come, come and join us!


Was going through the AirAsia website when i saw this GREAT offer of RM9.90 AirAsia ticket from IPOH-JB flying on 11 July. After discussing the plan to fly with SO, i went online again to book the tickets the next day. Niamah! 24 hours and the ticket price up went by 700%…. to RM69.90 each. For two persons, i am paying additional RM120, OUCH! Procrastination hurts!

    Many times their website price do not tally with what they published in the papers.
    This is so unlike Sinpagpore Tiger Airways or Valuair.

    I think AirAsia is 1 big phoney! I don’t take them anymore.

    the last time my mother in law got at RM30 ticket to ipoh, i tot AA offer must be genuine. but i guess if wan good offer must be quick and decisive.

    the offer in the website with live booking should be genuine. must try valuair and tiger when flying elsewhere. 10Q for the tips!!

    I think ticket prices published in the papers are true at time of print. Prices change from day-to-day so it’s wise to book when there’s availability.

    Air Asia a few months back gave away free air-tickets – some two million if I’m not mistaken – and colleagues of mine managed to book multiple tickets to different destinations. He has made trips and has still one or two more to go.
