Suspect Air Asia's shoddy treatment of their customers is coming back to bite them. They cancelled a stack of flights across Asia when the pandemic first hit in March 2020.At that time, customers were fully entitled to full refunds if airlines cancelled the flight. Of course, many of Air Asia's customers took up their entitlement with a promise from the airline the refund would be delivered within 12-16 weeks. Except, Air Asia never paid up and evidence of disgruntled customers crying 'theft' is spread across the Internet. Why would these customers ever book with Air Asia again? Is it quite likely they have told their friends, family and every passing acquaintance to steer well clear?  I would say it is never a good long term business strategy to steal from your customers.
