Promoting your service?Originally Posted by Funny
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!Originally Posted by Watcher
just like the saying goes. 'you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys' you just got expect the best services from this kind of cheap stuff. you win some and yes you'll loose some.

the last time i take tiger, not bad leh. only delay 10 min for take off and prompt on return. maybe you need some prayer before going..
Take care and enjoy your trip..
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.Originally Posted by Funny
Next time I got delayed, will call you with the stewardesses in towOriginally Posted by Astin
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 ...Originally Posted by Deadpoet
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 ...
Wah die liao, i bought a ticket 2 bangkok, evening flight... Hopefully no delay... If not maybe hav 2 stay there overnite liao....
Nt veri sure! I only state wat is in the brochure I had on hand nw. Is up to individual if u find it is nt worth it!Originally Posted by Long Thai Bean
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!Originally Posted by philliptan
always the Light, .... always.

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.Originally Posted by Watcher
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??????
just like my posting above.. you pay peanuts you get monkeys.. hahaOriginally Posted by Nikonnew
In Singapore One Peanut is equal to $600K.....of course I want the best monkey available by paying A Peanut.Originally Posted by bumortic
budget airline...the budget is refering to the airline, not consumer.
They have a budget for everything...including noodles...
