Re: Air AsiaX (not to be confused with Air Asia)
Just to point out that Air AsiaX still flies long-haul. After all, a flight from KL to SYD is farther than LHR-JFK. It was the longer KL to Europe sector that was the problem as I explained in the BT link posted earlier.
Ryanair is talking about flying transatlantic based a new business model. It’s one that would encourage passengers to pay more in ancillary fees to balance out the lower price of the ticket.
In addition it would, I expect, seek out alternative airports which would offer a deal on landing fees.
But this development is years away and Ryanair would first have to buy the right planes for the job.
