US banking system is one of the worst in western world.
I wouldn't take your US credit card either.
Air Asia is ok. Cheap & efficient.
They've turned air travel into a commodity like Ryanair & both seem to be going from strength to strength at expense of legacy carriers who just can't seem to adjust to new ways of doing things.
The likes of Air Asia, have uncomplicated the whole process.
Had a pilot friend fly OOL/KUL this week & he said they were fine.
Funny how people say, oh they are so cheap, there must be something wrong with them.
If only these people knew how inefficient the old legacy carriers are. Remember that many airlines started out as govt enterprises & we are know how hopelessly inefficient any govt enterprise is. There's no reason for them to be efficient. Employees still get paid no matter how badly they do their jobs.
In the real world, you do a bad job, you get the boot.
