I Flew on the Lat Plane

This is the "Lat plane" and is AirAsia's 17th Boeing 737-300, featuring characters from famous Malaysian cartoonist, Datuk Mohd Nor Khalid's (better known as Lat) work.

"Everyone reads Lat. The Lat characters portray the colourful lives and unique blend of our multi-racial society. We can’t think of anyone who can portray us better than Lat. Everyone reads Lat, everyone can fly on AirAsia."
Tony Fernandes, Group Chief Executive Officer, AirAsia Sdn Bhd

The flight was right on schedule. I departed from Kepala Batas airport last tuesday 3rd of January at 12:20 pm and reached KLIA at 1:15 pm. Their service is really improving.

Lucia Lai: We can see why he is the top CEO in Asia.
Alan: I guess there was nothing extraordinary. However, instead of a free orange drink you get to buy your snacks and drinks from a menu.

The plane looks cool! Too bad 911 happened cause then maybe we could have decorated our planes like that! Sort of like how back during World War II when they used to paint those pinup women on the sides of their bomber planes.
