Good Throwaway Ticket

Recommended Posts

Posted

I just bought a throw away on Air Asia for p859.  It was supposed to be "all in" for p739 but when you go to pay online they add a p120 processing fee.  I tried to avoid that by taking the pay at 7-11 option but it still added it in.

 

Cebu to Kota Kinabula in October, if interested.  This is not in the current promo.  I was looking in October and saw that it was less than the current promo that ends August 31.  That promo price is p1088+120 = p1208.

Also, I found paying at 7-11 very quick and automated.  You take your printout, they press a button then scan your barcode, pay and done.  60 seconds tops.

 

Unlike paying my Cebu Pacific paid at Cebuana.  30 minutes to wait while they do their backwards process.

The Air Asia site has it for the same price that you quoted @ P739, and that is a great price! This was current as of Sun, 5.24.15, - I hope that this link works and it doesn't reset the search options: https://booking3.airasia.com/Flight/Select

FERRIES to HongKong and Malaysia are cheap, but not easy to buy at distance.

And this is the second time I have used that route for a throw away, but no more!  I knew they could not keep that flight going forever.  I just got the e-mail below.  At least I should still be able to use it for my throw away.

I literally just received the same message by text message as my supposed departure was scheduled  for the beginning of July, now I'm actually hoping they'll accommodate a change in flights as i'm due to fly over to Kuala Lumpur at the end of July so fingers crossed it may work out better for me!

Perhaps it would be a good business idea to start an airline route with cheap ticket price suiting throw away tickets, but to anywhere no one want to go, and no return so they can't get back to avoid the risk someone ever want to use it. Such route wouldn't even need to use an aeroplane  :lol:
