yes but instead they make it so blardy cheap the fare nowadays, borderline almost not worth
it to do KLIA.. worse if the returning trip from KLIA send you to Nilai or whatever ulu place which makes you waste a lot of time because of low chance getting back to back jobs after you dropped them off.. but no choice, money is still money although peanuts..
in Melb you really no choice, like it or not you memang have to order uber/taxi if you're 2 people going with 2 check-in and 2 hand carry.
if you're light traveller then maybe got alternative to go to city with SkyBus (20 AUD/person). But if you're going 2 pax already 40 AUD, might as well order uber/taxi to get to the city, only about 45~50 AUD and get a car to yourself instead of cram in a bus.. so in the end, uber/taxi still the superior choice to go with, hence its understood as a traveller you need to "suck it up" as parts and parcel of travelling lah..
but back here in malaysia, people already complain about 65 ringgit fare, think they pay 65 ringgit like buying some premium service/item lol.. on top of that then most will ask the driver to do "extras" like drop them at their block although they mostly put condo guardhouse as destination, which cost the driver another 1~2km and 10mins extra for that fixed 65 ringgit fare...
only borderline? RM65 fare (RM52 after deduct commission, i.e. what you see in your pocket) for 50+ km to the airport from most places in PJ and northern parts of KL. But no matter how cheap....most drivers don't ever put KLIA in their avoid location list.
FYI we also have our own SkyBUS to the airport. only RM 15 (and RM8 if you are a senior 50+ person) from some very popular shopping malls (1 Utama, Paradigm, KL Sentral).
