Air Asia Baggage Allowance - International Fights

Hi there..... How does the Air Asia Baggage allowance work? The website refers to 'Pre-Booked Checked Baggage' and 'Airport Counter Checked Baggage'. It cites certain amounts of baggage and the corresponding amounts. However, is there a basic baggage allowance for an international flights (Chennai - Kuala Lumpur or Colombo to Melbourne) and the amounts cited on the website over and above this?

You are allowed 7kg of cabin luggage comprising of one notebook bag and one hand carry with a specific dimension given on their website. These can be strictly enforced as they are a budget airline so beware. If you need checked in luggage you will have to pay for it.

There is no basic baggage checked baggage allowance so you have to buy it if you intend to checkin luggage. The cost can be significantly higher if you buy at the airport so its better to prebook.

It is also advisable to pre-book a meal as they carry limited stock on board and they do not allow outside food. There is also no default meal so if you want to eat or drink you have to pay for it.
