    This isnt really award ralated.

    Im looking to book DMK - MLE in december, on Asia Air. I've found that theres 2 flights there FD175, and FD177.
    After Checking Flights' history
    FD175 flight is a noon arrival
    FD177 is evening arrival at 6pm.

    Im looking to book the FD175 so I can get on the Island earlier. The flights I see on both expedia and Asia air website only like flight 177, but the flights have a the noon arrival time.

    Should I trust the expedia and asia air on the arrival time? or the flight number? I don't want to book the 177 and end up having delayed my arrival or be unable to arrive for the my first night at the W.

    It's possible that the flights operate at different times on different days of the week and that one (or both) of the flights is not daily.

    Should i just purchase and hope that they keep the 930am departure? Ive searched the flight history all the way back to january of this year and that flight number has not flown in the morning. Asia air fd175.png Asia air fd177 regular schedule.png asia air fd177.png

    It's also possible that AirAsia has a different schedule for flights in December compared to flights the last couple months that you're maybe pulling flight history data from?
