Macau, originally uploaded by LeeLeFever_TwinF.

My wife is a ninja when it comes to finding cheap airline tickets. For some reason it would have cost about US$650 for us both to fly from Hanoi to Hong Kong or Macau. What Sachi found was that if we flew the opposite direction from Hanoi (to Bangkok) and then flew from Bangkok to Macau, we could save over 1/2, including departure tax and one night in Bangkok.  A ninja indeed.

Since we've been in SE Asia, many travellers have told us about different discount airlines to try, so I have a list in my notebook to check whenever we need a flight. I just read about the Air Asia business model and agreements with the Malaysian govt in a magazine. They are making a profit while the heavily govt subsidized Malaysia air is failing miserably. Because of their low cost structure with no-frills service, all they need is 56% of each flight to be filled to make a profit. From the flights we've taken, they seem to be doing very well!
