You can change it for free According to this tweet exchange the airline has no problem changing the title on tickets (March 2016).

I’ve flown with Air Asia a few times and with other airlines that have hand luggage weight limits. I’ve never had my bag weighed by Air Asia, though I have seen others go through this. It does sometimes happen. My impression is that I’d say it really depends on two factors. 1: How full the plane is. If they are expecting a packed flight then they will be ...

That's what they say: Important notice: Boxes and hiking backpacks are not considered as cabin baggage and must be checked in. Multiple items that are strapped, wrapped or tied together will not be counted as one piece of cabin baggage.

Same tickets. No difference in service. There is a difference in service between the budget and the flat bed class, but no difference otherwise. As you point out, the A330 suggests AirAsia X and the fact that it's a flight over 4 hours also suggests that; so it's an AirAsia X flight, whatever they're saying it as. Judging by the general quality of their ...

I can't answer the general question, but for your specific case, at last check Cambodia does not require proof of onward travel at all.

You should be fine. For transits of less than 6 hours such as your case you don't need a visa, as long as you have proof of onward travel, according to the Timatic tool on Emirates' website. Transit - Oman (OM) Visa Visa required. TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Holders of onward tickets for a max. transit time of 6 hours. Visa Issuance: ...

I just called the Indian AirAsia call centre, who said that the website "should" recognise your E-mail address even if you didn't book directly through them. However, even if it doesn't, they said you can call them and tell them your e-ticket number, and they'd add it into their system. It should be noted that this call centre, the only one open 24/7, is ...

AirAsia has a "Manage my booking" option on their website. I don't have an active booking with them so I can't tell if you can adjust this detail, but the website does say you can "update traveller details". If that fails, you'll need to call their call center. Last time I had to do that, it took quite some time to get through so it is a good idea to call ...

If the air travel is all on Air Asia and you bought this as a "Fly-Thru" service, then your bags will be checked through to Singapore, and you will only pay once, at check-in. Otherwise it will be considered two separate trips, you will pay twice, your bags will only be checked from TRZ to KUL, and you will have to re-check them in KUL. See this Air Asia ...

While AirAsia's fees vary from market to market, it appears that most if not all routes will impose a "Booking Service Fee" that "applies to all bookings made via Call Centre, Sales Office, Airport Sales Counters, ATSC operated directly or licensed to operate under AirAsia brand." This fee looks to be higher than the processing fee, so paying it really isn't ...

Like you I had to book four air asia flights for the next part of our trip and had the same problem. In the end I booked them through traveloka, they offer credit card payment without the extra fee. On one of the flights the actual cost of the flight was cheaper than when direct with air asia too. Edit: In the end one of the flights was cheaper with ...

It's a convoluted way of saying "these fares may not be available during dates that we decide". For example, one of the fares is listed as being valid "6 August 2018 - 31 January 2019", but if you click through to December you'll see that prices double around Christmas. This is because the discounted fares are either no longer available or (more likely) ...

AirAsia doesn't prohibit hiking backpacks in their Cabin baggage page anymore. So as long as your backpack fits the dimensions (56cm x 36cm x 23cm) it should be fine to bring on board.

Do I, an Indian citizen, need a transit visa for a short layover in Sydney? Yes, from the official Australian Government Department of Immigration website as an Indian national you require a transit visa. Indian nationals are not listed in those countries nationals who can transit Australia without applying for a transit visa. You will be applying for a ...

I managed to contact a travel agent friend and he tells me there probably isn't a way to get a stop at the same price, because this is a difference with low-cost carriers (LCCs). That makes sense to me as I used to travel only with major airlines and always booked stopovers at the airline hubs, though I did it through travel agents in those days and the ...

Am I eligible for TWOV at KL? Yes, nationals of India can get transit without a visa (TWOV) and enter Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for 5 days with the following conditions since you have a valid visa from Australia: Source: Ministry Of Foreign affairs Malaysia TWOV cannot be given to visitors who do not possess visa from 3rd country of destination as ...

In your case, you don't need to clear immigration at KLIA2. I have done this several times, not to India but other countries where I do not need a visa. If your KUL-HYD boarding pass does not need Document Check then you are good to go. Just follow the transit direction, clear security and make your way to the departure gate. Hope this help.

The wrong Gender shouldn't be an issue. As long as your name and surname maches the one in your passport, you should be fine. Some Airlines such as AirAsia even change it for free as seen here on SE. Just to be sure, you could either dress manly or more seriously, just give the airline a call or write them on Twitter.

As you'll have to go through customs you should get an e-visa. As a Malaysian Citizen you can get one and it's valid at Kochi Airport. Citizenships that can apply for an e-visa: Albania, Andorra, Angola, Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Argentina, Armenia, Aruba, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, Belize, Bolivia, Bosnia &...

So I asked the check in staff this morning, and they were unequivocal: if your boarding pass says GO TO GATE on it, no document check is needed. And this, indeed, proved to be the case: I did not have to interact with a single human on my way to the plane, just immigration check (scan passport) and gate check (scan boarding pass). Note that this advice is ...

No, you don’t need a transit visa if you don't leave the airport. I wasted my time and money in getting transit visa and believe me, no one bothers to look at it. There is a transit corridor at the Sydney airport and you can simply walk through it. No transit visa is required for not leaving airport for Indian passport holders. I travelled in November 2017.

You can have twenty laptops, if you want, as long as you follow the airlines restrictions on weight, size, etc. You will have to pay duty at customs for anything above a certain limit that stays in the destination country, including gifts you are giving. You typically pay no duty for personal use items that you take back with you - but it might be ...

I just flew with Gulf Air and my ticket/boarding pass was labelled Mr when I'm clearly a female. The default gender was Mr on the website when I purchased the ticket, and there was no attention drawn to gender choice at that time. I emailed them and was told it would cost US$25 to change the gender and the Gulf Air person indicated that I should do so. As ...

No, it's not a problem, and you don't have to change it. I've flown on European flights a couple of times with the wrong gender selected for my travel partner and not one airline bat an eye. If you search on Flyertalk you will find other reports confirming the same. Likewise airlines don't care if your passport number or date of birth is invalid when entered ...

This is the thumb rule. If you are going to the country of your citizenship, you won't have to go through document check at airline checkin counter. Printed boarding pass will suffice. You can directly go to immigration counters. In any case, if airlines want to check documents, they will flag and security will redirect before immigration counter. Also, ...

As an Indian national you can transit without a visa as explained here Do I need a transit visa for Malaysia? You need a visa if you want to leave the international transit area of Kuala Lumpur airport on your outbound journey. Depending on your itinerary you may be eligible for Visa on Arrival on your return trip (Indian nationals arriving from a third ...

You best bet is to make a reservation based on most of the itinerary you want. Just Hold it, don't pay. Then, call the airline and ask if the fare rules allow a stopover at the hub instead of a connection. If those particular rules don't, then ask the agent if there are similar discount fares that do allow a stopover.
