You’ve probably already seen Air Asia proudly proclaiming their “No Admin Fee, No Fuel Charge” policy. All seems swell as you choose your destination and dates and fill in your credit card details. But before you hit the pay button, look out for the “convenience fee,” charging you an extra B100 per person for a roundtrip booking via credit/debit card.

While it might seem a small grumble, it does take the gloss off of their whole fee-free campaign.
