Here's a great way to save money on travel: give birth 30,000 feet in the air.


A mom and baby boy will fly free for life thanks to a miscalculated due date. AirAsia said passenger Liew Siaw Hsia went into labor on Wednesday's flight from the Malaysian island of Penang to Borneo island.

Luckily for mom and baby, a doctor was on the same flight. Passenger Dr. Ronald Tang recruited the airline's flight attendants as his assistants.

"To celebrate this momentous occasion, we decided to present both mother and child with free flights for life," said AirAsia's director of operations, Moses Devanayagam, after visiting them in the hospital.

That is a SERIOUSLY miscalculated due date! Unless they have different guidelines about how far along you should be before you stop flying in Malaysia…
