Transfert from KLIA to LCCTHi,
we arrive Oct 27th at KLIA at 2.15 pm from Qatar.
The same day we want to fly to Kuching with Air Asia.
As Air Asia is flying out from the LCCT we need a transfert to the national airport terminal.
Any idea how much time this will take ? I know we can take a taxi to speed up the transfert from KLIA to LCCT.
Is it feasable to catch the 5 pm flight to Kuching at LCCT ?

1It's definitely feasible!
I don't remember exactly how far the distance between KLIA and LCCT is but it takes roughly 20 mins in the car
Because you don't have so much time in between, I would suggest just hopping on a cab.
It should cost RM 15 (RM 30 tops) , saves you dragging your luggage on the shuttle too.

2distance is around 20 km's.
Done this journey often, but always use the "local" bus.... but I did have to rush between terminals 2010 and the cost of the taxi back then was around 35MYR... no doubt it will have risen in price since then.
It is possible of course, but you have to consider the possibility of the Qatar flight being on time (early is okay obviously!); getting from the arrival terminal to the baggage collection via airport train (easy enough but takes time); hope the baggage collection runs at a decent pace; and whatever you do, get to the immigration gates as soon as possible - afternoon arrival and slightly busier than other times of the day for obvious reasons, it can take some time if you're caught way back in the queue with around, what seems to be 200 people in front of you (and that's just one lane).
Taxi will take 20 minutes as previously mentioned.
You can check-in on line with AirAsia - not sure about the baggage drop off though. Check--in normally closes 45 minutes before the flight.
... and to end, I'm meeting a friend in 5 days who arrives at KLIA from UK, at 2:30pm. We fly AirAsia to Medan in Sumatra, our options were 5pm or 9pm for that flight..... I chose the 9pm flight just to be cautious. If we get to LCCT in time for the 5pm flight then I'm sure AA will let us get on it, as has happened several times in the past but only if there is available seats.
