Air Asia Sucks?

Scary no?

Sorry AirAsia,

Well, don't you just hate flying long haul with a low cost carrier? Well yes, but I soon discovered it was not the flight i am hating. Actually, my flight back to KL on AirAsia X was good value compared to the price. I got a seat, got a meal, got toilets, pilot, luggage and it had just okay looking air stewardesses. In fact, the flight itself was perfect!

But Here I am 50000 feet in the air at 4 am. Wide awake. I was sleeping so soundly until I was rudely awoken. Before I go any further, here's a disclaimer, we must all forgive and forget. It's the right thing to do.

The scene of night 50,000 feet in the air.

Anyway, I was rudely awoken. It was not the air stewardesses handing out food and beverages. It was not the newborn baby sitting just beside. In fact the little baby was sleeping like an angel, something quite rare on my other flights. It was also not the footsteps of people visiting the loo.

It was this!

Ah crap, the good thing about iPhone is it has an airplane mode. The lousy thing about it is that the camera don't work in the faintest of light. Ar! Turbulence! If you read this that means in still alive.

Well, for those of you who want to know, here is a recreating of the crime scene.

So there was this guy beside me in row 49. (Global warming is a bad time to fly, the pilot is dodging storms) anyhow, this guy was not just an ordinary guy, he was as big as a

! The AirAsia seats are 3.5 iPhones across. (did not have a ruler at the time) and this guy could barely fit into the seat!

Well, that wasn't my problem. I don't really care how huge you are. But when you sleep in planes the biggest manner or common courtesy you should have is not this!

So I had to tolerate this in my face throughout the wee hours. If it was a hot babe or even a hot guy I would not have care cause i could have done this

but when you have a cow leaning on your small self, it's daunting! Well, if that did not get the picture across, let me rephrase that, it's not nice having a an oversized sumo cow falling asleep and leaning on you. That's why stay in Japan. Don't laugh. This is not funny. I've survived to tell the tale.

Arrgh. Here I am. 6 more hours till I get back.

Now I can forgive and forget.
