Air Asia charges convenience fee for credit card bookings

By Top Koaysomboon | Mar 23, 2010

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. Hang on—who isn’t booking an AirAsia ticket with a card, isn’t that the whole point of online booking? While it might seem a small grumble, it does take the gloss off of their whole fee-free campaign.

Paradise of the Blind

Earlier this month, Chiang Mai-based artist Sutthirat “Som” Supaparinya, 42, launched Paradise of the Blind, an art exhibition made from books that have been banned around the world. Running through May 29, the project is the first installment of Silom library-slash-gallery The Reading Room’s “Sleepover” art project, which has invited six artists to take over the space with cultural projects. Som explains her motives behind the artwork, which has already attracted the attention of plainclothes police and soldiers.
