AirAsia Vs. MAS

Sunday, October 26th, 2008 | In News & The Events |

I remember when I was young, every time when traveled to other places with family, we used Malaysia Airlines (MAS) because it was the famous Airline we can use for traveling from Sarawak. We had to use this Airline when traveled to other place and we not have choice for the expensive fare of the air tickets.

Gradually a new Airline (AirAsia) was established in year 1993 and started operations on 18 November 1996. AirAsia was rapidly growth with the lowest cost of air tickets fare from time to time every year. I was the royal supporter for this Airline, and I used to travel all the time with this airline and even I booked a free air ticket from KL going back to Kuching this coming Chinese New Year 2009. The free air ticket is not included the tax and fuel but the total price plus the surcharges for the free air ticket just around RM60 ~ RM70 one way.

I can not deny MAS is the high class airline because their provide the quality service, foods and better seat slot whereas AirAsia is not served the quality foods yet RM7 for a cup of Maggi Mee (Usually at price of RM2), but they really can offer the lowest air ticket fair and fulfill the people’s dream that “Everyone can fly”. Recently MAS airline is offering the cheap air ticket that travel within the Malaysia.

MAS Airlines Tickets fare 2
RM103 (Included the surcharges) travel from KL to Kuching and the same price for return. This low cost air tickets offered by MAS like these was very seldom, maybe they purposely want to compete with AirAsia airline.

MAS Airlines Tickets fare
The total of the travel cost from/to KL and Kuching only RM19 one way; include the surcharges only at price of RM206 for the return air tickets, which is consider cheaper air tickets fare that offered by MAS since long time ago.

AirAsia Airline Tickets fare
Whereas Airasia can put up an image said “Free Seats!” and offered an absolute zero cost air ticket for everyone.

From my opinion, if MAS really can offer RM19 for the air ticket fare to Kuching, maybe one day I will try to book the air tickets for this airline, but I still prefer Airasia airline for travel smart and the cost saving every time travel to other places.
