    check-in counters extremely slow; seats should be given continously for family members; food sale not particularly noticeable; linkway was wetted after rain without immediate maintenance; there were more to be improved;

      Tiger Airways, Singapore's very own budget airline. Its the first time i've ever sat in anything other than an SIA plane in 3 years and a budget offering at that.

      The first few things you notice is that there's free seating but seats can be allocated at a premium price. I managed to get a special discounted price for Western Australia at $650 to and fro with no additional airport tax or anything like that. Which i still find, is a pretty good deal given that no other airline i've checked can match that.

      The second thing i noticed is that there's no free food and no free drinks and entertainment. Which was quite a shock since the journey is 5 hours and there was nothing to do. Worst of all is how dry the air in the plane is. You'll have to drink or face the dryness of it all. Its not really a choice in the end.

      The planes are of a smaller variety and thus leg room is limited. Its also quite wobbly during take off and during flight which makes it rather difficult to sleep.

      As a budget offering, its not too bad. Just that i'm too used to being pampered with unlimited drinks and entertainment. That said, i'll probably stick to SIA in future. Cheers and kudos to Tiger Airways still .

      Flew Tiger Airways to Bangkok in December 2006. The flight attendants were friendly and helpful, although I hated the idea of free-seating as the other passengers simply shoved and pushed their way through the queue. :( I didn't like the fact that they had very limited food on board, and the high costs for them. I bought a sandwich for more than S$4 on my return flight and though it tasted well, I felt that it was not worth the price.
