"Pick A Seat" on Air Asia

I am glad to read in today's The Star papers that Air Asia, our budget airline, is now introducing Pick A Seat” service for all flights where every passenger would automatically be assigned a seat number when they make a booking. This is for a fee, of course, but honestly, I would rather have this feature than having to rush for seats. This will come into effect from Tuesday.

If you want a specific seat, you can either purchase a “hot seat” for RM25 one way or a “standard seat” for RM5 and you also have the option of choosing a window or aisle seat or anywhere else.

What is a "hot seat" and what is a "standard seat" you may ask. The hot seats are those in the first five front rows and the two rows at the emergency exit. A hot seat comes automatically with express boarding facility.

The standard seat allows passengers to choose the other seats. Check out the picture below.
