Interior of Firefly
IF AND WHEN BUDDHA AND JESUS CHRIST DECREE I SHOULD MARRY, I WILL HOST MY WEDDING ON KOH SAMUI, THE WORLD'S MOST ROMANTIC ISLAND WITH STUNNING BEAUTIFUL BEACHES, HOSPITABLE HOTELS AND STUNNING SUNSETS AND SUPER SUNRISES TO GREET YOU AFTER I BREAK MY VIRGINITY WITH MY WIFE.
I JUST RETURNED FROM KOH SAMUI SO CAN SWEAR ON THE BIBLE KOH SAMUI IS SUCH A LOVELY AND UNSPOILED ISLAND. I HAVE NEVER DRANK SO MANY COCONUTS AT SUCH CHEAP PRICES AS THE ISLAND WAS ONCE KNOWN ONLY FOR ITS COCONUTS BEFORE BEING DISCOVERED IN 1971.
NOW FIREFLY FLIES DIRECT FROM SUBANG AIRPORT SO GETTING THERE IS A BREEZE AND KOH SAMUI AIRPORT IS REALLY HOSPITABLE AS YOU GET FREE SNACKS, DRINKS AND WIFE IN THE DEPARTURE LOUNGE!
So whether you fly Cattle Class or high class, you get to enjoy the freeflow of drinks! What a service! Whay can't all airports do the same! Then that airport will see a surge in traffic the same way some shopping malls charge RM 1 to RM 2 parking compared to a bloody RM 12 at KLCC just because they think they can strangle visitors who have no choice unless they come by train. May Buddha, Jesus and Vishnu make them see the folly of their ways which will lead to eternal damnation in hell while I relax in heaven nibbling tidbits and being fed Dom Perignon by virgins of both sexes as there is no sexual discrimination in heaven.
Return fare is around RM 820 but don't hold me to this! Check website www.fireflyz.com
Firefly taps Wedding, Honeymoon, Team-building & Incentives segments in Koh Samui
Firefly is working closely with the Tourism Authority of Thailand to promote Koh Samui as an upmarket leisure destination as well as a destination for weddings, honeymoon, corporate team-building and incentive travel.
Its Head of Marketing & Communications, Angelina C Fernandez said there is a growing demand for weddings and honeymoon packages especially at the beach resorts in Koh Samui.
She said: “Demand for destination weddings and honeymoons are not just from locals, but also from foreign passengers from medium and long-haul markets. These foreign tourists arrive in Kuala Lumpur, spend a few nights visiting various destinations in Malaysia and then continue their holiday to Koh Samui to fulfill their wedding and / or honeymoon plans.
“For this niche and growing market of travelers, we have created off-the-shelf packages to meet the varied travel budgets. Firefly Holiday also customizes packages to meet clients’ requests. We have noticed a growing demand for private themed weddings.
“Requests for golf packages and theme-building activities in Koh Samui are especially popular among corporate clients. Since the global economic crisis in late 2008, companies have been using team-building activities to rebuild and motivate their teams as they battle to survive by cutting costs, restructuring and stepping up multi-tasking.
“Koh Samui is a popular destination for team-building especially among small and medium-sized enterprises because of the direct air access we provide and its close proximity, which is within a two hour flight time from Subang. We have been getting many team-building requests geared towards helping clients improve morale, productivity, strengthen team dynamics and communication.
“For our clients, the special experience does not have to start on arrival in Koh Samui. Upon request, we can create a memorable experience from the moment our clients board the plane by providing them with special welcome drinks, customized meals and headrest covers with their names.
COO Shorthaul Malaysia Airlines/ Firefly, Ignatius M.C. Ong said Firefly’s load factor on the Subang – Koh Samui – Subang route had been consistently high, an average of above 80 per cent since the airline commenced services on October 26, 2008.
He said: “Firefly’s Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) on the Subang – Koh Samui route showed that inflight services were consistently above 90 per cent. “We take feedback from our customers very seriously and we’re continuously working to improve our customer experience.”
CSI is an independent customer survey carried out on-board daily on every flight on all of Firefly’s routes.
Elaborating on the benefits of flying Firefly, Ong said holiday makers enjoy convenient flight timings. “Flights arrive in Koh Samui at 2.35pm, providing convenience for passengers to check-in immediately at their hotels. Firefly departs from Koh Samui at 2.55pm, allowing holiday makers to spend an entire morning and part of the afternoon in their holiday destination.
“Our unique selling propositions include direct, non-stop flights between Subang and Koh Samui where passengers get to enjoy complementary essential add-ons such as 20kg check-in baggage allowance and refreshments on-board.”
