Subject: Low cost, no frills Asian airlines
Hi, Ziners.

For those of you who may have need to fly within Asia, today's Los Angeles Times travel section has an article that may interest you about low cost intra-Asia airlines. These are new, no frills carriers similar to Southwest Airlines in the US or Ryanair and Easyjet in Europe.

They offer fares that may be 50% or less of the walk up fare on full service airlines like Singapore Airlines.

Here is a link to the article (free registration may be required) http://tinyurl.com/5jmrj

Does anyone have personal experience with these new budget airlines - Tiger Airways, AirAsia, Thai Air Asia, Valuair, JetStar or Virgin Blue?
