# ACCC to drag AirAsia to Oz High Court
They're at it again. AirAsia have trotted out a well worn excuse for employing misleading conduct after the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the country's corruption watchdog, claimed fares sold on AirAsia's website do not display prices inclusive of all taxes, duties, fees and charges. The ACCC will potentially also impose multimillion dollar fines. And what excuse have AirAsia pulled out of the hat?
Do your bit to bring down AirAsia!

Holiday Airfare Survey was conducted on Wednesday 23rd of November, with all Singapore-Perth return flight searches being made online 10am - 5PM. In each instance, the lowest economy fare offered by each airline was the one selected and featured in the survey - all fare data was taken from each airline's own website, not from airfare aggregators such as Expedia.com. For all holidays there was a standard departure date of 05/12/2001 and return of 31/12/2011, though the actual arrival and departure times obviously differ among the various operators, kept within 24hours. Screen captures at the base of this article will evidence each fare.
The Holiday Airfares Survey has revealed opportunistic low-cost operators are frequently more expensive than full-service airlines like Qantas and Singapore Airlines. We conducted our study and discovered that AirAsia hiked their holiday airfares so high, the no-frills operator is now more expensive than the top-shelf full-service carriers.
Good #$%@*& luck!
