On Air Asia X first flight to Shanghai!

As some of you may know (via my twitter, FB, FB page), I’m in Shanghai now enjoying the 2-8 celsius weather!
Ok, maybe not so much the weather but nevertheless the thrill of my “inaugural” visit to Shanghai, thanks to AAX inaugural flight is keeping me warm to my toes.

On Air Asia X first flight to Shanghai!

Our inaugural flight took off yesterday at 19:35 from LCCT Kuala Lumpur after a lion dance performance and a quick speech cum story-telling from Mr Azran Osman-Rani, Chief Executive Officer, AirAsia X.
