Most of the Air Asia Passengers will think that the heavier check-in luggage weight, the higher fees will be charged. The theory is right but could not be applied with AirAsia new baggage supersize fees and charges. AirAsia has data showing that most check-in luggage usually weights between 20KG to 25KG which resulted the passenger to pay higher luggage excess fees as much as RM 15 per kg for domestic flight and RM 20 per kg for International flight.
Previously, for pre-book online check-in baggage for 15Kg, the passenger has to pay for RM10. Now you have to pay RM20 for 15Kg luggage which is 100% increase fee rate. When you check-in the 15 Kg luggage at airport, you need to pay RM20 previously and now the fees had been increased to RM30. I know you must think that you need to pay even more for supersize baggage (20kg), Supersize large (25kg) and extra large luggage (30kg), but the truth is you need to pay less than last time. I thought this is interesting fact because you are paying cheaper fees for heavier luggage.
For example, for 20kg pre-book baggage supersize category, you just need to pay for Rm30 compare to RM43-RM55 in the previous fees. For 25Kg luggage, you only need to pay for RM 40 instead of RM 80-RM105. Therefore, I can see that AirAsia is encouraging people to have baggage weights 20Kg to 30Kg instead of 15Kg. However, you must pre-book all the baggage online to enjoy the lower rates.
