    Hey All

    Were in the process of planning our trip but Ive read that some airlines wont let you board the plane unless you have a return ticket BA being one of these. Has anyone travelled with Air Asia one way to KL and did they have any problems?

    Were going to be moving on from KL and so will have tickets for onward travel.

    I heard this kinda cr=p all the time, you can get into Malaysia just fine without an onward ticket. I flew into KL twice without an onward ticket, no problems.

    Same goes for Bangkok and even China (entered via Beijing) too. No problems.

    Lots of misinformation around on t'web! You never know...this might be too! :)

    Where are you flying from? I've flown Air Asia dozens of times and never been asked to show onward tickets before boarding the plane in another Asian country.

    Airline staff (all airlines) at check in counters in Europe tend to be stricter though. I have been asked to show an onward flight or a proper visa every time I've flown to Thailand on a one way ticket in recent years.

    Malaysia isn't Thailand though. UK citizens can stay in Malaysia without a visa for 90 days whereas you only get 30 days in Thailand. You have onward tickets as well so I can't see why there would be any problem boarding your flight.

    You could always phone Air Asia and ask if you want to be absolutely sure.
