How busy are Air Asia flights normally ?

Are they generally full capacity, or does it depend on the route ?.

I'm flying Hong Kong to KL, KL to Phucket, & then returning the same way to Hong Kong.

Thanks

It depends, bit like how long is a piece of string really.

But having been a regular with Air Asia they are usually quite full as they on the whole offer good prices so do get booked up.

LCCT at KL is an indication of how popular Air Asia and is usually very busy.

Thinking back I have only ever been on one flight that was half full.

As above really, Fridays and Mondays are especially busy, especially on internal Thai flights, but generally full - "Now everyone can fly" certainly appears to be working for them.

Hi,

Their HKG services are traditionally very full.. it's due in part to the fact that it's one of the few cities and airports that they service that is also a major connection point with full-fare carriers going to other regions such as Euro Zone and North America.

A fair number of their HKG passenger are those people who have flown into or will fly out of HKG to/from their home country-using a full fare carrier, then buy AirAsia tickets for travel around the region and use AirAsia to get back to HKG before switching back to their full-fare carrier for the ride home.

It's also one of the few sectors that's commonly 'embargoed' or restricted for staff or employee non-revenue travel due to the consistent higher load levels.

Travel Safe,
