Hope you are still in MWF.

My opinions as follows:
1. what would be your preferred airline for traveling within SEA?
Answer:If budget is no an issue, SIA  :thumbsup:  .

2. what are the factor(s) when purchasing an airline ticket?
eg price, traveling time/day etc
Answer: depending on the destinations, eg. Indonesia/Thailand/Philippines, i will try to minimize the traveling time especially I am not comfortable being caught in flight delays and stuck in their airports unnecessarily. I feel unsafe somehow. Just my personal perception, no offense.
I will try avoiding those frequent flight delay carriers.

3. your dislike(s) about traveling with a low cost carrier
Answer: no particular. As long as meeting my needs.

4. your dislike(s) about traveling with a full service carrier
Answer: no particular. As long as meeting my needs.

Well... if you are already looking at lowcost carriers, i guess its all about price and right flight times isnt it.

as long as we reach the destination, a cheap flight will do. unless you are rich and dont mind parting away with money.

Hi

for me, I do a lot of Malaysia and regional flying.

I like Malindo.

For MY they have many fights and generally less delays compared to Firefly.

Regional it is better than Air Asia and MAS.

Crew on board are friendly and the legroom seems to be better compared to the rest of the airlines.

took a flight to HK last month.

The crew were all from Indonesia. Excellent service.

Came back with Mas and the difference in service was glaring!!
