AirAsia web site in B&W to honor Thai King's death
 
Just went on to AirAsia's website to book some flights, only to be greeted with a Black and White version of the site I am used to.

Am I going selectively colorblind, or what is going on?

No it is in respect for the death of the King of Thailand.

Fair enough. They could have put that somewhere on the site, instead of putting me off booking with them. My eyes are all screwed up from it.

Isn't AirAsia a Malaysian airline?

You also have Thai Air Asia

Just noticed a load more Thai sites are at it too.

Is there any way to get it back to normal?

My eyesight isn't great and the sneaky LCC booking page keeps adding things I dont want and cant see where to remove them. The buttons are grey text on grey background!

No all websites, as a sign of respect, have been changed to black and white. I would expect this maybe to last for around 30 days from the death of the King.

Back to colors now.

I ended up booking an Air India flight instead, cost about the same with all the bells and whistles. Saved me from a headache.

That certainly isn't it @:-)

A picture of a couple of bikini clad lasses frolicking in the surf, in living colour (picture will probably be different depending on when you click the link).

I don't see bikinis or surf, just color in the boxes down the page. The top half is mostly black and white, with prices in red and with a black and grey "in remembrance...." box toward the top.
