This is all bad news, the last thing we need is for more bogans like BKKTrapper coming here and complaining that it doesn't quite measure up to their expectations.

Oops.

It's Feb, not April.

Air Asia, direct on the website.

No taxes just a booking fee.

Careful who your booking with

I don't really understand how these booking agent sites exist. Why wouldn't you just use whatever "scanner" site to see which airline has the cheapest fares on the day- and then go to that airlines site to buy tickets= safer, and often a more straightforward booking site.

^^Do they?- maybe they do. Look at the sites often but only go to the airlines own site when I'm actually buying. But every time i have the price is the same or a few$ less.

I was using adioso.com to find a fare once, originally they would hand you off to the airline to complete the booking (which was great) but later started to use aggregators. So as I was part way through booking a flight having been handed off to "Cheap-o-air" the latter called me to tell me the fare I was booking was not available but they had some more expensive ones. What a scam.
