Ya return trip. Last time their point really easy to earn also. Frequent flyer is you fly until the airline rep or the management know you.
I had a top 50 flyer voucher back in 2016.
Good perks provided.
Dunno if they still provide this.

Airasia promo usually start from midnight and most of their big promo target the whole of Airasia hubs so the website traffic definitely much more higher then jetstar or scoot since their promo only target mainly local and launching timing most people heading to work which is why easier to secure and less lightly to get crash.

I Purchased their Skytrax and Ndp promo travel date is sep and nov didn't even need to plan for 7months unless is way too late to see their promo and most of the promo seats already taken....
Airasia direct flight from Singapore, is only to Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia ...
I would say Malaysia population is far higher than Singapore populations,
and like what you have mentioned, they also have target markets from other countries ... hence usually their website cannot take it when promo starts ...

Because CAG doesn't want to let them open hub here as their market way too big and afraid some local airline will lose even more $

Our local airlines marketing fail big time... you can hardly see they create brand awareness out of sg... Not saying AA is the best but really need to respect that they can dominate the Asia sector within short period due to their marketing.

No matter what we will normally just fly with which ever airline offer the cheapest ticket. I had seen so many customers scolding the airline s.ck will never fly with them again yet still always see them continue flying with the airline..
