My dad booked a big taxi from the hotel the day before, the taxi was scheduled to depart from the hotel towards DMK at 05:00 AM. We departed from our hotel slightly early at 04:59 AM.
Closing in on Bangkok-Don Mueang.
We arrived at the airport approximately 45 minutes after we left our hotel.
That bag on the pic belongs to us, we had a total of five bags. Two medium-sized bags and three small-sized bags. Two of the small-sized bags were used as cabin bags (hand luggage).
FIDS at DMK.
It wasn't too exciting to fly on an AK 320 after flying onboard a QR 380. But hey, at least I get to try out a new carrier.
Air Asia international check-in desks.
It was time to go through immigration after our bags were dropped at the check-in desks.
We were allowed to queue behind the ASEAN line for some reason, even though we're not members of any ASEAN country. This lead to a rather smooth immigration process, the regular line for foreigners was far more packed.
Next stop was security. Security was actually quite smooth and we went through with no problems.
Our flight (AK891) would depart from gate 25 according to this FIDS.
Duty-free shopping which none of us were interested in.
Well, it's time for my favourite part and that's spotting! I did a bit of spotting in various areas, some shots are taken from the windows close to our gate and some shots are taken from other areas. The majority of the planes here are Air Asia (Thai Air Asia) planes, which isn't really surprising. They are the largest operator at the airport.

My ride arriving from Kuala Lumpur!
Another shot of my ride.
My spotting session at DMK ended after our plane arrived at the gate. I decided to relax at the seating area next to our gate (25) after my spotting session.

And here's another shot of my ride, docked at the gate.
Boarding commenced at 08:06, 19 minutes prior to the scheduled time of departure.
The seat pitch wasn't impressive, but it was a low-cost carrier so I didn't expect much more. My knees did touch the seat in front of me a handful amount of times. It seemed like I would have a miserable flight after these first impressions but it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would for some reason. The overall seat was actually pretty comfortable, more comfortable than the LH 320 I flew on back in April. The material choices for this AK seat were pretty good and increased the comfort despite the mediocre seat pitch.
The window was quite dirty, which meant most of my shots through this window won't be of highest quality.
The load on today's flight was good, probably 80-85%.
Pushback commenced at 08:28, 7 minutes prior to our scheduled time of departure.
Pushback was completed at 08:31.
Malindo Air B738.
My good friend from Germany managed to track my flight once again! Thanks bro!
Retired Thai A345.
Takeoff, we departed at 08:44 AM local time.
Some shots from our climbout.
Provided by my friend.
Another shot of the legroom. Unfortunately the passenger in front of me decided to recline his seat which even further reduced my legroom. A good amount of the passengers were asleep, I would join the sleeping passengers in a few moments.
The tray table.
The BOB menu.
Some of the meals.

My sister decided to purchase one of these boxes with chicken burgers. She told me to try one of them but the burger didn't have much taste IMO. My sister liked it though. I didn't buy anything from the BOB menu, I don't think most of the options were worth the price.
I bought my first Air Asia X plane onboard an Air Asia plane. This A330-300 would accompany my other 110+ models at home. Another important thing to point out, the flight attendants on this flight were very professional, friendly and attentive. A great crew overall.
I took a nap after I bought that A333, the nap lasted for an hour.
I woke up an hour later to this view.
We began our descent into Kuala Lumpur International Airport shortly after I woke up.
Landing on runway 15.
Taxiing to our gate.
Malindo Air B738.
Thank you Air Asia for a rather nice flight.
Even more Air Asia action…..
Immigration was quite efficient here, we cleared it very quickly.
Me and my dad got the bags while my mom and my sister went to freshen up in one of the bathrooms.
Our family later went to one of the taxi counters to book a taxi to our hotel in KL.
Driving out of KLIA2 onboard an airport taxi.
My father intentionally asked the driver if there were many Bangladeshis here in Kuala Lumpur. The driver told us that there were indeed a lot of Bangladeshis here, he also told us we'd see them everywhere.
The drive from KLIA2 to Kuala Lumpur took approximately one hour. I think that's it for this report, I hope you enjoyed reading it. Thank you for taking your time to read it :).
Driving to Genting Highlands.
Bangkok - DMK
Kuala Lumpur - KUL
Summary is as follow:
Cabin comfort - Mediocre seat pitch, but the material choices for the seat made it bearable.
Crew - Very friendly and attentive crew with many smiles.
BOB - Offerings weren't bad, but nothing I would buy.
Entertainment - Wing view, that was the only entertainment on this flight which wasn't a bad thing.
On-time performance - Departed 9 minutes late but landed 10 minutes early, nothing to complain about here.
