Does Airasia Airline is really a cheap Airline?

Currently, we see many attractive low fare advertisements by Low budget airline Air Asia. These advertisements look like Rs 4500 fare for New Delhi – Bangkok flight, Rs 6500 for New Delhi- Kuala Lumpur etc. In advertisements, these fare look very attractive and reasonable; however, when we try to book tickets on their website then we fail to find such low cost tickets because availability of very few low cost tickets. Moreover, these tickets are not very affordable tickets as we do not get numbers of facilities like free food, entertainment solution etc on these airlines.

Recently, I tried to book two tickets from New Delhi to Bangkok on Airasia.com and it showed me price of Rs 29500 for return tickets for two person while fare of Kingfisher Airlines for same New Delhi – Bangkok flight for two person was Rs 31000 only. So in net, I was getting discount of Rs 1500 for booking ticket on Airasia minus free services. Here I want to make point that most of these airlines are not cheap airlines as they claim themselves.

For these airlines, People are required to book their tickets six month to one year before to get cheap tickets and second, these airlines do not refund money back in case of flight delay or cancellation of tickets. Airaisa airline may make big claims; however, it is not a very cheap airline.
