Jetstar for my trips to Bangkok. Also only airline with 20kg luggage. With Tigerairways you need to top up $$ to get 20 kg which total cost may be more than Jetstar.

You mean their pricing is without luggage allowance????

So, for 20KG, how much does one need to top up? Lets say for SIN-HKG-SIN flight?

Flew both Jetstar and Tiger and neither of them provided a comfortable trip. The seats are so cramped... :sticktong

If really have pick one, it will be Tiger because of cheaper fare but their timings are mostly in the afternoon, meaning half a day gone...

Tiger and Air Asia give you only 15 kg luggage allowance. Sorry if I didn't make it clear.

15kg is okay if you don't plan to shop or you travel as a family or group where you may be able to do a group check-in. Some members in the group may have less than 15 kg luggage.

In my case, I usually depart from Singapore with already 14-15 kg!

tiger is out.

for budget airline, as long as it does not cancel flight / delay 5 hours with all passengers sitting inside and plane on the runway / tell you they overbooked and sorry you got no seat, lastly - crash and burn, then it is ok.

don't fuss over the lack of comfort if short flight. it is budget.

Ermm... S$450 for S$500 not very attractive really. Did you get them free?

If you can go lower than that, I'd be interested. PM'ed you my offer.
