Just got an e-mail from Air Asia X, informing me of the launch of Air Asia's new loyalty programme, BIG.

Is this a first for a LCC?

Southwest have one already. But this is great news.

WestJet has had one for years. I hadn't even bothered signing up because unless you purchase at least $1,500 in 12 months then you don't earn a dime. These policies were changed a couple days ago so hopefully I can start earning something on my frequent YYZ-YUL trips...

As for Air Asia X, good for them. Are these points transparent between Air Asia subsidiaries and Air Asia X? There was a time a few months ago when I was flying Air Asia Thailand just about every three days, this program would have been helpful!



Flying refined.

It would suggest the LCC market in Asia/Australasia is becoming more competitive so Air Asia is seeking to retain loyalty. The arrival of SIA's Scoot in 2012 will not help the situation for Air Asia..

Quoting col (Reply 1):

Southwest invented the airline loyalty program soon after start-up in the 1970s when Braniff undercut Southwest's fares. Instead of getting into a fare war, Southwest gave away a bottle of scotch to any passenger who traveled on full fare. For a while, the biggest liquor distributor in the State of Texas was Southwest.
