    True, I do not expect 3 course meals, freshly squeezed orange juice, feather pillows nor wool blankets ... none of the luxury we are so accustomed to SQ. However, I do expect the flying bus to leave on time!

    My home-studio is very near airport, next time got such delay can invite the air stewardess to come over for a photo shoot before flying off. (apology for the cheap advertising )

    Usually for these budget carriers, their planes are fully utilised everyday. So if one of the planes is down because of technical fault, it is very difficult for them to find a replacement. It is also not likely that they will be able to transfer you to another airlines cos of the low fare that you have paid.

    Not sure if you can claim for local delays ... I know this is the "going market rate" for delays if you are overseas ... And in order to claim, you also need a statement or an admission from the airlines that the flight was delayed ... Quite a tedious procedure to get your $100 ... but i m not saying don't do it ... BEcause the $100 would have effectively covered the amount that you paid for the insurance.

    Usually in cases of such delays, the airlines will never tell you how long is the delay ... even when they know it already. This "delay for half hour" and then "delay another 3 hours" tactics is just to buy time for them to find alternatives ...

    For full fledge carriers, they can negotiate with other carriers to take their passengers or to find an alternative route for the passengers or to arrange for hotels for the passengers. Keeping them in the "greys" (i wouldn't call it the dark) gives the airlines time to work and also hopes to pacify the passengers; so that they are not so aggressive and demanding ...

    I've already written to the press over Tiger Airways.... Now it seems like I have to take a full page ad to get a reply!!!
    Probably you will get a free ticket after this ... or maybe why dont you ask for the stewardess and take a cab to Loyang's studio ... should be enough time to come back by 1500 (or maybe another delay to 2355?) I will go buy the Changi famous nasi lemak and meet you there if you want to..... Astin, get ready!

    if you go to the website, you will realise there is absolutely no way for you to contact Tigerairways, the only person you could talk to is the ticketing agent, and they will give you a standard answer "I don't know". I hope it's not another contract issue, or else be prepared to get on the flight tonight or tomorrow........

    I agree, but i don't think they have claimed that we will be expecting delays and sorts. the basic service is to leave and arrive on time, I believe this is what everybody is made to believe that they are paying for.

    Actually I have also noticed that the stewardess are more rude in the way they talk to passengers........Question: Does speaking in a rude way makes the cost lower??????
