I was disappointed by the news. We all know that the price advertised by the budget airline is always the minimum price. The actual amount paid by the passengers can be significantly higher. Given that I am reluctant to book my flight 6 months in advance, I doubt I can fly to the British capital and back for under RM2,000 – still not affordable.
There is another concern: the date of the flight is fixed. Assuming that I actually pay RM2,000 for a round trip. Then, due to some unforeseen circumstances, I couldn’t make it. Unlike a ‘full fare’ flight with conventional airlines, change of date is not allowed. I would lose all the money I have paid in advance. Shall I take the risk?
