Media organisations, many based in Australia, said the move was in response to a complaint from the activist group Collective Shout.

The group complained that the message on the advertisements appealed to sex tourists.

AirAsia has previously announced it will launch the direct service in June.

Well, at least AirAsia was honest and realistic with her add. I admire that spirit. Of course the add appealed to sex tourists. The bus looked pleasant. Gives you a cheer up and make you laugh while walking to office.   I will fly AirAsia!  hahaha.
