These flights are not only dirt cheap, they're direct, too.
We've uncovered super cheap flights to Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur starting at $191 return, or $80.50 each way.
That's cheaper than travelling across Australia.
They're also cheaper than AirAsia's launch fares from Melbourne-Kuala Lumpur which started from $99 each way, or $198 return.
We're unsure whether this is a mistake fare or not, but they are selling through Flight Finder here and are specifically for 13-25 March flights on AirAsia X.

If these dates don't work for you, other dates in March are similarly priced. For example, 14-25 March seats are going for $203 and 4-26 March flights from $209 return.
Flights from other cities take a drastic incline, starting at $293 return from Sydney and $355 return from Melbourne.
