But it is unclear sometimes why flights are cancelled by Air Asia. In fact, trolling through some blogs, many people are suggesting that the reason Air Asia cancel flights is because that they are not full of passengers.
In other words, if Air Asia don't think that it is economic to run a flight - ie they don't think they will make money - they will cancel it. Passengers may be offered one of the following:
The next available flight
A flight to the same destination within 48 hours
A credit to the same value of the flight, to be used for a rebooking within 3 months
Of course sometimes planes at Air Asia are cancelled due to such things as mechanical failure, airport delay and/or closure and bad weather. But some Air Asia flights are cancelled well in advance of the scheduled departure, sometimes over a week prior.
