Hi all, I'm planning a trip to Osaka year end.. I know is still too early to talk but likes to know is it possible to get promo air tickets from coming Matta Fair March 2019? From my case study, for non-stop flight is only from MAS or AA...
*
during AA promo i get KUL-KIX RM1100+- after seat, baggage & meals.

during MAS promo i get KUL-KIX RM1700+- economy premium seat <---- this is during matta fair last year.

during ANA promo my sis get KUL-TOKYO-KIX RM1600

how good ANA is also just go for direct flight. Its god damn tired if you choose transit with ANA.

1st way:
most popular way is wait for AA free seat promotion

2nd way:
the cheapest fare in AA is buy from AirAsiaBig using app, but normally is final call sale, promotion update every week(some is 2/3 weeks) Monday time 00:00
it can cheaper than AA free seat promotion, but can't guarantee the date you want.
i get my jeju 300+ return flight, and 700+ osaka return flight using this promotion
you need at least 1000 point to redeem the flight in AirAsiaBig app

3rd way:
another one is using AA voucher, through RinggitPlus website apply credit card, last month is RM350 AA voucher, This month is public bank RM200 AA voucher
and each booking allow you use up to 5 vouchers, which is RM1000 discount.


note : unable to use AA voucher in AirAsiaBig app

Guys who are familiar with Hokkaido, can I check if JR Pass cover the Airport train from Chitose to Sapporo? I checked via Hyperdia and all these trains are about 30 minutes away compared to JR trains which can take 60 minutes?

Chitose Airport got 1 train company only that is JR. I think what the different between the 30 min & 60 min is

30 min is airport express train which it will skip certain small station

60 min is local train which it will stop every station.

If you only visit Hokkaido, you no need JR Rail Pass
You just need Hokkaido Pass

Bought mine for 1.3k a few months ago. Leaving next week. I put 2 hours. Not sure if enough. Hopefully no delay in first flight to SG.

Curious, can you bring those salt or pepper sachets (which one can grab from McDonald) to Japan.

Yup got it from there. At that point it was only RM80 difference between AA. So it was a no brainer. If I bought luggage, food etc all will make it higher. If you buy return tix, you can also redeem tix in SG airport for 20 dollar voucher or lounge pass.
