Down from the original 20 and launch has been postponed due to the lack of aircraft.
"AirAsia X, the new airline, will pick Boeing's 777-200 or the A330-300 aircraft by Airbus, Fly Asian Xpress shareholder Tony Fernandes said today. The new carrier has also decided to postpone the start of its services by as long as a year because it can't get the aircraft it needs to operate in July, he said."
And they have already picked the plane but won't tell...... I wonder why.
"The company is close to an agreement for the 15 planes and has already picked the model, Fernandes said, declining to say which aircraft was chosen."

Oh no... a one year delay. My friend plans to fly to Australia with AirAsia X, since it will offer a very low fare. Anyway, i would prefer a T7 for them, as they are operating A320 for their short medium haul operation. It would be nice to see a great T7 at LCC-T KLIA. Can't wait to see what the decision is....
