You cannot have your bags or luggage above you or under your feet if you are seating at Exit row seat. Have to place your luggage elsewhere with others. I have been assigned the exit row seats twice, nice legroom! Especially when you are in a budget airline's aircraft but you'll lost time trying to get your luggage when others simply just get it from above.
That is incredibly Singaporean...
In SG, China and probably HKG, people go mad once the plane lands and rush for their luggage...
A few minutes more won't kill you...
Anyway, all of us can vote with our wallets. Those who feel aggrieved paying the extra dough can use the services of another airline, whilst those who are glad to pay will now have a choice.
If enough people walk away, SIA will eat humble pie, or everyone will just have to toe the line
As someone said, SIA is a profit making organisation. I think I should buy some of their shares now!

I dunno about you but I hate the idea of going through the super tight human traffic of a budget airline aisle to the end and take your luggage. Later to have to squeeze all the way back.
but ryanair has seat numbers!
it's like rushing to a movie seating when you've already gotten your seat. i might have gotten one or the other mixed up though. but one of these two has seat numbers allocated, one does not.
Both Ryanair and Easyjet has no seat numbers allocation actually. I've taken both of them frequently enough over the past year to know hahaha..... I really notice that the british have almost the same "kiasu" attitudes that our neighbouring countries have been so disapproving of us of. Long queues for freebies, rushing for aeroplane seats, rushing to get off the plane, queue cutting, rushing into the tube to grab available seats and ignoring old people/ppl with difficulties...the Brits do it all the time. Maybe, just maybe we inherited the kiasuism from our colonial days.
but yar, i'm frequently amused by it. of course you do meet perfect british gentlemen and ladies, but i haven't really found many in london - more in the cumbria (lake district) area.. which made the touring there really quite pleasant..
Who cares about exit row seats?
window seats for me!
wait...what if they start charging extra for that too?!
