Air Asia has bought another 11 Boeing 737-300s from GE and is upgrading its cabin interiors to feature leather seats and red carpets. The press release also states that AirAsia plans to be flying to Thailand by the end of this year...
Down south however, AirAsia is gearing up for the launch of its Johor Bahru-KL flights and is finalising agreements with SingPost and SingTel (which will sell tickets by SMS) for ticketing and a local coach company to provide the Airport bus transfer from Singapore by means of the 'Causeway Link Shuttle'.

S$9.99 AirAsia tickets being sold at Singapore post offices
Malaysia's AirAsia starts its budget flights from Senai to Kuala Lumpur from 22 October and tickets can be bought at five post offices in Singapore.
The first 10,000 tickets will cost just $9.99 - but you have to hurry because more than half have already been sold.
Tickets can also be bought either via the Internet or by placing a call to AirAsia's call centre and then pay using a credit card.
Soon there'll also be more buses from Singapore to the Senai Airport in Johor.
Two bus companies - Comfort Delgro and Causeway Link - plan to run shuttles from Jurong East and Queen's Street to Senai.
The Malaysian budget airline is also having two planes refurbished in Singapore, all ready to fly the Senai-Kuala Lumpur route.
I guess the news tells us, AK really make an impact down there. Good news and good competition. By the way, Malaysia and Thailand has open skies agreement right?

AirAsia has applied to the Thai Authorities to begin operating KUL-HKT-BKK from 01Dec - but this has yet to be approved. Odd that they want to stopover in HKT on the way to BKK - since presumably they won't have traffic rights between HKT and BKK.
