Shuttle fare kul-sin?

I know that there is (?was) a shuttle fare sin-kul. It used to be around us 65. I need to fly from kul to sin and wonder if there is a shuttle (stand by) fare.

I believe the shuttle fare is RM167. Taxes are RM80 additional.

For RM55 more, you can get a reserved seat. Worth the extra US$15 IMHO (though still quite a rip-off on this duopoly route).

Thanks for the prompt response - I was also thinking of taking air asia - quite a cost saving (a bit more hassle) - but don't know if I trust the safety of an airling that will sell me a ticket for 19 rin Has anyone experience with them?

AirAsia's safety is fine, in my experience. They know that a safety snafu would spell death to their business, so there is really nothing to be concerned with regarding their training or maintenance. I've flown with them a number of times and I've never once been concerned about safety or piloting -- and I'm a pilot myself, so I figure I would notice if something seemed out of sorts.

That said, if you fly AK you will only get from KUL-JHB, not SIN. You would have to take ground transportation from Senai Airport to Singapore. May not be worth the hassle considering that SQ or MH are still somewhat affordable on the KUL-SIN route, at least in USD.

Fly First Class US$84 with first class lounge access in KUL with delicious food and drinks. That's the way to go. ^

I flew AK r/t to Langkawi earlier this year with no problems. In fact, it was a very pleasant flight. However, I would not trudge to SIN from JHB even if it saves me RM200+ but that's just me
