Well, What Do You Know? I Am Now a “BIG Shot”!
I received an e-mail message from AirAsia which announced that they are upgrading my AirAsia loyalty programme membership to “BIG Shot” status — free for life.
This means that I can enjoy a range of new and extra “BIG” benefits, as shown below:
The AirAsia BIG loyalty programme is operated by its affiliate, Think BIG Digital Sdn Bhd — or Think BIG for short.
I would be deluding myself if I thought I was the only one who suddenly became a “BIG Shot”, as other FlyerTalk members have reported receiving similar e-mail messages…
…and I thought I was special.
To be honest, I have only flown as a passenger on two flights operated by AirAsia — and the last flight was almost five years ago. I would certainly fly as a passenger on that airline if I have the opportunity to do so again, as my flights were punctual and flown with clean aircraft. There were plenty of open seats on both flights; and there was a nice offering of food and beverages for fairly reasonable prices should you get hungry or thirsty. The service was fine as well. Sure, AirAsia operates as a “no-frills” airline — but I had no complaints…
…and the airfare was significantly lower than a competing flight operated by Malaysia Airlines.
While the benefits here do not exactly portend the possibility of taking a shower during a flight while enjoying caviar in my luxury suite with head-to-foot service by a bevy of flight attendants, it is at least a step in the right direction for members of the AirAsia BIG loyalty programme.
What are your thoughts? Have you received a similar e-mail message from AirAsia?
