Introduction

This trip report is from 2009, after arriving from Shanghai. Read trip report here : Shanghai(Pudong) - Singapore

Plan was to initially take a bus to KL. After considering the travel time and Air Asia tickets decided to fly to Malaysia. Here is the trip report.

Food Court under the Terminal

After having breakfast at the food court, headed for the Air Asia Check-in counters. Check-In didn't take long as was travelling light with no checked bags.

It was a long walk after disembarkation to reach the terminal building.Since didn't require visa for Malaysia, immigration was a quick process.

Baggage Collection

Conclusion

Air Asia was very efficient boarding, flight was full. Customer service wise, crew was good. Being LCC, there was no entertainment on the A320. I didn't purchase any food onboard.

Singapore Changi was easy to travel, clean and efficient. KL LCC was shed with long walk to the immigration and baggage collection. Transport was biggest issue, with having to take bus to the city.

    Thanks for sharing this #ThrowbackReport. At first I didn't see the date of the flight until I saw a Kingfisher plane! And I was like wha???? Haha.

    Looks like you had a special blue livery on your plane. Almost like like Southwest Airlines blue. AirAsia gets the job done. They get you from point A to point B for a decent price.
