Cheap tickets, finally

People have been complaining about how expensive was Malaysia Airlines tickets. MAS finally announced new price structures for tickets. They offer cheap tickets by expanding their fare classes from eight to 16. It's time for them to do this as Fly Asian Xpress just launched their AirAsia X that will be flying to Europe, Asia and Australia.

I honestly think that MAS is pretty expensive compared to other Asian/Middle East airlines like Emirates, Singapore Airlines and Etihad Airways. I did some research on booking tickets online on major airlines websites including as mentioned above and compared them with MAS. Yep, other airlines are cheaper than MAS. Emirates on KL-Dubai-London Economy return ticket costs about RM3400 while MAS on KL-London costs RM3900! It's probably because direct flight is expensive than connecting flight but who is willing to pay higher price for one destination while you can pay less for two destinations?

I also found that if you want to travel with MAS, book your tickets with KLM Royal Dutch. KLM has code-share agreement with MAS on KL-Europe routes and they offer cheaper tickets although the route is operated by MAS. Few Flights on Amsterdam-KL and KL-Sydney routes are operated by both KLM and MAS.

Starting this Monday, flights with MAS will be a lot cheaper than usual.
