    [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Now, our Flight Combo™ will fly you from Singapore to Melbourne for just S$119.99* one way. And since Tiger Airways is the only true low fare airline to fly out of Melbourne, the only place to go for the smartest bookings and the lowest fares is Welcome to Tiger Airways[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]​

    Is it just me or do the flights appear to be red-eyes in both directions. Too many connections and not enough benefits really.

    I have just looked at return flights BKK-SIN-DRW and they price out to 19,310THB and when converting at 28THB/A$ it works out to A$689. These flights arrive SIN-DRW just before midnight and depart DRW-SIN just after midnight.

    So then looked at DRW-MEL return and if you can find the $79.99 flights then this would cost $159.98 departing DRW-MEL to arrive just after midnight and departing MEL-DRW to arrive just before midnight. Forget it if you then have to connect to anywhere in Australia.

    So all up A$850 for BKK-MEL return with 2 stopovers in SIN and DRW! I wonder if TG or MH, full service carriers, can offer a BKK-MEL return for around A$1000-1200.

    Honestly looking at flight times and connections for TR if you can find an airfare with TG, MH or even BA and QF for around $300-400 more than take this airfare. Airfares would need to be a much cheaper than the prices I have just researched for TR to get any of my business....

    Totally agree with you John.

    And don't forget, if you want to get pre-assigned seats (and in my experience with Tiger you should), it will cost you AUD 25 per flight, or at least AUD 100 on top of the MEL-SIN-MEL fares being quoted.

    And then there is the "convenience fee", etc, etc...

    Agree with you both John and Stryker! The fares would have to be a lot lower to entice me to overcome the inconvenience of the flight times, seat pitch, baggage charges etc etc.....
