    Assalaamu alaykum,

    A lot of the airplane companies are having specials to Malaysia for 24 hours today.

    AirAsia flights for May are $299 and $253 return.

    I'd also check out other companies as AirAsia prices exclude baggage and meals.

    InshaAllaah I'm going either next month or in July

    Do you mean it's 299+253=$552 return?

    If that's the case I wouldn't say it's a special. We'll be flying June 30th inshaAllah albeit from Sydney, but total cost per passenger return inc meals, luggage and bus transfer from KL Airport to the City Centre is $180.

    This was a special a couple of months ago due to their new route from Sydney to KL.

    Which are the other airlines having the sale?

    Yeah that price is not really special - unless it is for travel at peak season, then it seems OK.
    Singapore: oppresses Muslims, bans athaan, bans hijab in schools, prevents building of madrassahs or muslim schools, puts limit on the percentage of Muslims allowed in each apartment building, and bans Muslims from joining Singapore's elite military forces. Singapore; Israel's best buddy!

    Abu, that's very cheap mashaAllaah. But in saying that, I'd rather swim to Malaysia than travel with AirAsia again lol We're flying Emirates inshaAllaah.

    I checked prices 2 weeks ago and they were $660 to KL one way per person, so compared to today's prices, it's pretty good.

    For Emirates that is a great price return.

    Abu Dujana - that deal was pretty good. Congrats on getting it.

    Considering we're on the plane for 8 hours I personally dont think it's a big deal, it was too good of a deal to pass on and with the money saved on flights we can allocate towards better accommodation and activities which I think will stay more in the memories than the flight.

    For me it was more the fact they wouldn't let me take my medicines on the plane and put it in the fridge even after they told me on the phone I can and the manager at the check-in said I can. Horrible customer service. And I'm a bit costraphobic so the bigger seats in Emirates would be a big help.

    aussiemu, the price AD quoted does not include meals, luggage, TV, snacks or any form of entertainment. Emirates is abou 150 more (all up) but it includes everything above including a movie and bigger seats.

    Khaled - Abu Dujana's price did include that and city transfer :P It was a very good deal from Sydney a few months ago.

    I flew Air Asia and was happy with them. I can understand if you have other issues that it may not work for everyone but for me personally I was happy with them. On the way there the flight was half empty so we had whole aisles to ourselves which was pretty good alhamdulillah. Lucky for me I've never had a bad experience on a flight no matter what airline I've gone with. I do prefer to save money on the flight and spend it elsewhere though. 8 hours of discomfort I can put up with :P Also in your case it is two people but when you have 3 or 4 kids all the savings add up significantly to mean a lot of money. For 2 people I would prefer the Emirates flight too lol.

    I've travelled on Malaysian airlines, Etihad, and Emirates and out of those three I found Emirates to have the best customer service and in flight entertainment.

    I was referring to the $552 price not the $180 which he grabbed. Yeah it was a good deal mashaAllaah.. Doubt they'd have a similar one anytime soon though

    are the seats on air asia really that much smaller? it says online that they are about 16.5 inch, thats 0.5 inch smaller than an emirates economy seat.

    I would prefer emirates too, always loved flying with them and great customer service, but now with a child its not as cheap anymore

    Naj I didn't find teh seat width that much smaller than the malaysian airlines one i went on. I think there was a bit less leg room though. however it makes no difference to me because plane seats are the most uncomfortable seats regardless of how much leg room lol

    lol u can say that again, but on the plane I get so tired I just fall asleep anyways, comfortable or not. But this time its different with a toddler. alhumudlilah our flight going up is in the morning, just the flight on the way home is at night, but Musa should sleep through it InshaAllah.

    i only flew Malaysian airlines the first time I went to hajj and cant remember the seats, but they were comfortable.

    If you're going to KL soon there's a new residence/hotel opening up in May which is around 5 mins from the city with very cheap rates and is very suited for a family, even with upto 4 kids. http://www.wotif.com/hotel/View?hote...Day=2012-06-30

    A 2 bedroom 81sqm suite Which includes buffet breakfast for 4, has 3 queen beds and a kitchen is only $125 per night and as I mentioned, is practically brand new. One bedroom is only $93 and has 2 queen beds.

    This is by far the most suitable/convenient/cheapest/practical place I've found in KL which is a pretty hard thing to do when you're trying to book for 2 adults and 2 kids in the 1 room with proper bedding configuration.

    And then there's the Westin in Langkawi with the money saved on flights and accommodation

    westin is a very nice hotel We stayed a little bit down from it at the fahrenheit suites in a 3 bedroom apartment. It was good for the price as we needed 3 rooms. No breakfast or anything there though. And the hallways are old but it was a fantastic location so would go there again if I needed to as it was right on bukit bintang across from the pavilion so we walked up and down adn everyone went in and out as they wanted without having to take taxis etc. Not going to suit for everyone but we were happy with it for what we got and the price and particularly the location

    jazakum allahu kheiran brother, those rooms look beautiful and MashaAllah cheap! Seeing as I am going in October, wotif, seem to only allow 6 months at a time to book, so I gotta wait for it to reach mid april for me to book it.
