I Finally Own AirAsia!

Posted by : foongpc | Sunday, November 21, 2010 | Published in


Yes!! I now own AirAsia!!

No, not the airline company.

But their A320 Airbus!

The toy version, that is. Haha!!

No, I did not buy this plane on board the AirAsia flight.

By the way, I have never bought any souvenirs or gift items from AirAsia before. Have you?

Besides, this toy plane of mine is much more solid and heavier than the ones sold by AirAsia.

I bought it all the way from Bangkok! Yes, in one of those souvenir outlets in MBK Shopping Mall.

My purchase was actually inspired by what I saw at KLIA before my flight to Bangkok.

A display of some of the planes from various international airlines.

This is the Boeing 747-400 from our very own MAS (Malaysia Airlines).

And this is Airbus A380 from China Southern Airlines.

Vietnam Airlines has its Boeing 767-300 displayed here too.

Qatar Airways' plane is also on display though I am not sure which model is this plane. I am not really well versed in planes. Do you think it is a Boeing or an Airbus?

Etihad Airways from United Arab Emirates has its Airbus 332 here as well.

And of course, our very own budget airline AirAsia with its Airbus A320.

There were many smaller models displayed in glass cabinets.

So why did I choose to buy this AirAsia plane when the shop in Bangkok also sells other planes from other airlines?

I had almost wanted to buy the Thai Airways plane since I traveled with this airline for my trip to Bangkok, but decided against it.

I could have bought the MAS plane too but somehow, I ended up buying AirAsia.

Maybe because I have been traveling mostly with AirAsia and it had indeed made air travel more affordable for everyone!

    Obviously, I've never had the opportunity to buy from AirAsia. I've had opportunities to buy some from US Airways and Delta here in the USA. I like looking at model airplanes in airports, too. It does add appeal to them.

    Enjoy the week my fellow Sagi friend!

    I am shocked that Tekkaus had never flown on the plane before!! Sure boh???

    November 22, 2010 at 5:36 PM
  34. Twilight Man said...

    I thought you bought Air Asia because it also happens to be the cheapest toy. No?

    November 22, 2010 at 5:37 PM
  35. Twilight Man said...

    I have flown Air Asia so many times and I am grateful to them! They have improved so much since the first year they launched.

    November 22, 2010 at 5:38 PM
  36. Twilight Man said...

    Out of all your model planes in this post, I have only flown Air Asia and MAS. I always feared the Middle East planes due to terrorists BUT 1 guy assured me that the safest airline from possible hijacking and terrorist would be their Middle East planes! So true!

    Cool! And those are very nice models too.

    November 22, 2010 at 6:18 PM
  39. HappySurfer said...

    I wanted to buy something on their catalogue (don't remember what it was now) but they ran out of stock. Stewardess said I could buy it at the airport but it was not convenient so I didn't bother following up.

    I never buy any souvenirs from airlines. Unless they're giving away freebies...then I don't mind accepting them ;)

  44. [SK] said...

    For a moment there I thought you went to buy AirAsia shares. LOL!!

    If you really did buy the shares, then you'll really own AirAsia.

    November 25, 2010 at 10:36 PM
  52. eiling lim said...

    haha probably because Air Asia has prettier air stewardess and that's why you bought that plane?

    The aircraft models were really stunning. In the first picture, I thought it was a real jet flying over the ground. The models were really great. I loved them all.
