AirAsia X Launches

Tony Fernandes, the CEO of Malaysian low fare carrier Air Asia, has announced the launch of AirAsia X, which sounds like a pretty bad ass airline (if you ask me -- and you didn't, though AirAsia XXX would be even more bad ass.  I've used my quota of "bad ass" for the year.)  FlyAsianExpress will actually operate the flights, but it has an agreement with AirAsia to use the latter's name for a while.  Fares between Malaysia and the UK will start at less than $10.  They're hoping to order 20 aircraft, making it the largest long-haul, low-fare carrier in the world.  We'll be watching the July launch...
