I didn't have any hesitation riding Air Asia Zest from Manila to Kuala Lumpur despite relatives giving me warning to not go to Malaysia because of what happened recently to Malaysian Airlines. But I have Blogger friends who have been flying with Air Asia and all they have are good words for the said carrier. Those words must have been enough reason to give it a try or I just knew I was only gonna sleep inside the plane for 4 hours so if anything bad happens I wouldn't know.
AirAsia Zest is a low cost carrier based in the Philippines that flies hand in hand with AIR ASIA. It has been voted as the World's Best Low Cost Carrier for 5 consecutive years at the World Online Survey by Skytrax and recently at the 2013 World Travel Awards. It serves domestic destinations to Boracay, Cebu, Macau, Shanghai and my destination Kuala Lumpur.
AIR ASIA flies to a total of 88 destinations. They have been flying for 8 years already and has carried over 200 Million guests. The airline is proud to be a truly Asean Airline (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) with established operations based in Malaysia Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines stretching across Australia, India and China.
They made it easier for passengers to check in. You can either do it through Mobile Check in, Kiosk Check In and Web Check-in which is what I did for my flight. Just make sure you do it 1 hour before your flight to avoid inconvenience. You'll depart from Terminal 4 of NAIA. In few minutes we got at the boarding area with no hassles.
I was one of the last passengers who got inside the plane together with my friend STARMOMETER.COM, the #1 Entertainment Website in the country. Flight Attendant Ace welcomed us with a smile. All of the flight attendants were very accommodating and friendly.
AirAsia offers inflight hot meals from Traditional Filipino Chicken Adobo to Malaysia's Favorite Nasi Lemak. If you order in advance, you'll get a 20% off from the regular price of P200 and a free water.
We arrived in KL on time. The flight was smooth and I didn't have any problems at all. They even allowed me to pose inside the plane after everyone got off.
Every purchase of AirAsia tickets lets you earn BIG POINTS which can be used to redeem free flights. Air Asia also made it easier for people who have no credit card. You can purchase the tickets through their payment partners; Robinsons Department Store, Cebuana Lhuillier and 7-11 stores.
