There are different ways for a person to travel – by car, bus, or even flight. Since the birth of Air Asia, Malaysians and people from all around the world are blessed with affordable flight fares that enable us to get to our next destination quickly.
But of course, there are some notable things when taking the plane. So here’s 12 things Malaysians who have traveled through flight will understand!
1. The paranoia of missing your flight
You check through your flight details to make sure your remembered the time and date correctly and then plan the ETA you need to get to the airport. This estimation is a form of art ok. You don’t want to leave your house too early and aimlessly wander in the airport, but also want to be early enough so you don’t get stopped at the boarding gate.
2. When your boarding gate is located at the absolute end of KLIA2
If you’re lucky, you can hop on the buggy service that will drive you right there. But if it’s not available, prepare to slowly lug your heavy baggage towards your boarding gate.
3. That nervousness when going through the metal detectors
You brace yourself that it may ring at any time.
4. Stealing blankets given out during flights
Don’t pretend you don’t have one at home!
5. Getting assigned to a window seat
That bliss when you realize you got assigned to a window seat and you’re secretly filled with joy. Also maybe brag a little to your friends who got stuck with the middle and aisle seat.
6. When you’re on the plane and you realized you forgot to take your jacket out from your luggage
I regret all decisions that have led up to this point.
7. When you hit air turbulence
As much as we try to calm ourselves that it’s normal, our minds couldn’t help racing through all the possibilities of this aircraft actually crashing.
8. The dreaded non-stop baby cries during flight
…especially when they are seated near you
9. Packing as much stuff into your hand carry so your luggage doesn’t go overweight
10. Worried about booking an Uber/Grab to go home because you might get ambushed by angry taxi drivers
11. DUTY-FREE GOODS!
Who can say ‘no’ to an opportunity to buy chocolates, alcohol, perfumes and the likes for a cheaper price? Even if you’re not buying anything, you’d be swarmed with requests from your friends, family or relatives to purchase for them anyway.
12. Tahan-ing your hunger because airplane foods are expensive
Yes, as Asians we’d usually rather starve than paying for overpriced meals onboard flights. Luckily our Air Asia offer cheap on-board meals though!
