We started things with a bang and thats exactly what happened this morning. It was an absolute blast as we had the AirAsia X CEO, Azran and AirAsia X Chairman, Dato’ Kalimullah kickstarting the launch of the showdown of historic porportions right here in LCCT. Every second was history in the making as we bid adios to Xcalibur and our first flight to the land of the Queen, London bridge is falling down and the most significant contribution to mankind by the British (besides James Bond and Harry Potter) which is simply – the Teletubbies!
Everything ran perfectly and it was a rounding send off for Xcalibur which took off admist a glowing morning. The kick off event went off without a hitch and Xaclibur taking to the skies is another chapter in the history of aviation with the first ever long haul low cost (yet excellent cabin crew and first class service which Blinky must add) making its way to London.
Blinky would like to take this opportunity to wish all those on board well on their trips to Piccadilly Cirus, the Royal Parks and shopping at Harrods.
The first family who grabbed the first tickets to London. We had to sneak a shot of them being interviewed. Afraid if Blinky was to reveal myself would not be left alive to write this post (yes, i am that cute).
For all others simply going to our red-abulous party at Altitude 360, 29 storeys high with a superb view of London, all Blinky can say is – buy me a t-shirt.
The world is watching as AirAsia is still making waves all around the globe and London is simply another feather on the cap of another great milestone to where we wanna be.
To all staff, Blinky says be proud, for this day, nothing else matters as we did it together. We pitched in together and made this happen. Congratulations to all leaders who had the vision and this must surely be a day that will bring tears to your eyes (we will find evidence of Tony shedding a tear or two). To our guests, nothing means more to us than you celebrating this day with us. Life is simply airasia-nsational.
Look out for more pics soon from Blinky’s gang members from Altitude 360 where the only party in London today is painted red.
PS. The only sad news is that Blinky will not be on Xcalibur and be guarding the office while office pips have fun. Woe is me.
