Malaysia: travel agents fight misleading airline advertising

The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) has scathed “zero fares” offered by the country’s two warring carriers as misleading and demand the advertisements should be banned. The “zero fares” offered are not only for limited seats, but do not include airport taxes, fuel surcharges and other “applicable” fees and taxes.According to industry observers, the offers were a result of a price war between the country’s two fiercely competing carriers, upstart AirAsia and national carrier Malaysia Airlines.Source: eTurboNews; find article here>>.
