Well, the flights are going to cost GBP 350 return instead of GBP 300 return (I thought it was supposed to be GBP 100 one-way - what happened to that figure?!), and the route will commence in Spring or Summer 2009, instead of before Christmas 2008...

... but Air Asia X is finally going to start operating long-haul low cost between Kuala Lumpur and London Stansted.

Quote:
Air Asia X is banking on appealing to business travellers to fill a front cabin of 58 premium economy seats to offset the lower-priced economy seats at the back of the aircraft. Both sets of passengers will have to pay for food, but there will be seat-back entertainment screens in both cabins.

This all looks a bit unambitious next to what Oasis offered.

The Hong Kong based long-haul low cost carrier had one-way flights from London Gatwick to Hong Kong for a lot less than GBP 175 including taxes and the in-flight meals were included.

(Okay, they tasted like soggy cardboard, but at least you didn't have to get your wallet out).

"Less than 175,-GBP" - yes, that´s why they failed (among other mistakes)
The food was not that bad, though !
I´ve flown Oasis once so I know what i´m talking about ! (I paid 159,-EUR ow incl. tax)
Of course the choice was limited to 2 different dishes but the amount was sufficient and the taste was at least "average" (i´ve had much worse food on popular legacies already)

Certainly not as cheap as Oasis, but cheaper than current airlines, especially if only booking one way. I'm surprised that they won't have a limited number of seats at a lower price than this though.

It might be cheaper than £175 to fly KL - STN due to departure tax only being £4 from KLIA LCCT as opposed to £40 from the UK, but I guess some of this will be offset by the extra fuel required to fly East to West.
