Superb Malaysia Airlines fares from India

Malaysia Airlines, a recent oneworld member, frequently runs sales from various markets (nothing new!), but has recently launched a great sale from Indian stations across their Asia Pacific network, which have about 30% off the regular fares. This could be their own initiative or the launch of Malindo Air in India, but who cares, the fares are pretty good and cover a lot of destinations on business and economy. You can book some of these deals till end of February 2014 and some others till April 2014. A reader, Parag Mehta, alerted me about the fares, and here are some of the fares, for instance, Mumbai – Bali return trip at INR 23,000 and Mumbai – Kuala Lampur at INR…

‘Tis the season of withdrawals. Air Asia X out of India and Europe

Just while I was trying to get over the loss of American Airlines ORD-DEL, the bad news seems to be just starting to roll in. Just today, Air Asia X, the long haul carrier of the low-cost Air Asia group, decided to pull out of India and Europe. Air Asia used to operate an A330 service to Mumbai and Delhi from Kuala Lampur, and an A340 service to Paris and London. They recently scaled down these services in the Winter 2011 schedule. Now, with effect from February 1, 2012 Air Asia X will stop flying to Mumbai, and from March 23, 2012, the Delhi service will stop. Why? Its the economy, and the high fuel prices, and the low tourism industry,…

Malaysia Airlines Business Class companion tickets from India all of 2012

Malaysia Airlines and IndusInd Bank came together for an exclusive offer valid on Malaysia Airlines J class all of 2012. If you hold the IndusInd Platinum or Signature Credit Cards, or one of the older versions from Deutsche Bank, you’re in for the treat.

Malaysia Airlines is a future oneworld carrier, and one of the good South East Asian carriers. According to the promotion details on IndusInd website, the promo is valid on all IATA fares in Business Class, so I’d go out on one leg and hope that this should also be valid for the Discounted Business class fares which is not usually the case…
