Hallo,

Has anyone ever flown Tiger Airways? They have some cheap fares and I'm considering flying them from Singapore - would appreciate any opinions or comments.

Thanks!

Yes, my wife and I flew SIN-HAN-SIN last month on a $9.98 + taxes & charges fare (A$89.55 all in for a return trip). We got exit row seats on both flights, but the pitch on the other seats looked pretty tight. To get the exit rows we just joined the queue as soon as it started to form - there were plenty of people in front of us but most go for the front of the aircraft rather than exit rows. Priority boarding is giving to families so if you have a child or can borrow someone else's then you should have no trouble getting a decent seat.

Food and drinks are available for purchase and the prices seemed reasonable. There's not much in the way of service and no in flight entertainment, but that's not surprising for the price. The seatbelt sign was left switched on for long periods for no apparent reason, and after a while was ignored by both passengers and crew. Baggage allowance is 15kg, we were slightly over on our return flight but they didn't mention it. Since we flew, Tiger have moved to the budget terminal at SIN which I'm sure is far less interesting than the main terminal.

Given the rediculously low price, I would fly with them again.

No I haven't but I noticed in SIN the other day, and hope I don't have it wrong, that they use their own terminal.

There is Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Budget terminal where Tiger Airways is the only carrier to fly from. Not sure how far out of the way it is located.

Flew TIGER last DEC from HKT-SIN. Per StevePER, the flight was ridiculously cheap. Had some dragons at check-in and charged another 1000BHT (AU$30) for excess baggage. (Who knew DVD’s weighed so much?) Didn’t argue as I fear I am too pretty for a Thai jail.

Flight time was similar to MEL-BNE. So didn’t buy a drink or miss the creature comforts of in-flight entertainment. But my knees would have pressed deeply into the seat in front if I did not have the entire row to spread myself out on.

It was however, my first experience on a budget carrier so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect.
