AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes stated (21-Jul-2011) with AirAsia Japan operating out of Tokyo Narita International Airport, it would be odd if AirAsia X did not operate there in the future. The carrier operates to Tokyo Haneda at present.

AirAsia X may relaunch London in 2017, potentially with ex-SriLankan A350s
Malaysia’s AirAsia X is considering the lease of A350s or 777-300ERs in 2017 to accelerate its return to Europe. A new widebody type will add cost and complexity but is necessary if the medium/long haul low cost airline is to meet its objective of relaunching London as soon as possible.
AirAsia X had been planning to wait until it receives A330-900neos before relaunching London and commencing other European routes. However the airline prefers not to wait until 2H2018, when its A330-900neo deliveries are slated to begin, and using another aircraft type in the interim mitigates the impact of a potential delay with the A330neo variant required for Kuala Lumpur-London.
AirAsia X could also use a new aircraft type – most likely A350-900s – to support new routes to the US. It plans to launch services from Japan to Hawaii in Jun-2017 using A330ceos, but also has longer-term plans for longer routes from Japan to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco – and potentially ultra-long haul routes from Malaysia to the US.
AirAsia X Part 3: 5 new routes in 2016 - LCC's accelerated expansion risks newfound profitability
Malaysian long haul low cost airline AirAsia X is accelerating expansion with several new destinations and more than a 50% increase in capacity. The airline is planning to add at least five new destinations in 2016, including three which have already been launched.
The expansion is driven primarily driven by aircraft utilisation improvements and a reduction in charter operations. AirAsia X is not expanding its fleet in 2H2016 and has no deliveries currently planned for 2017.
However, AirAsia X is looking at options for expanding the Kuala Lumpur-based fleet in 2017, which would drive further capacity growth. Growth is already in the pipeline for 2018 as the airline starts to take delivery of new generation A330-900neos, which will likely be used to launch nonstop flights to Europe.
