Tiger airways is a pain in the but to deal with. Royal Brunei will still do quite well out of this as tiger airways offers no connecting service, and while there may be a small market for SIN
services the main market in the connections to MNL
It will be interesting to see how this works out. DRWites have filled the plane ex DRW
because its the cheapest fare available out of DRW
and its something different. But the first SINDRW service only had 100 seats filled and they were on sale for 1SGD a seat (plus taxes).
To add to this QF
have dropped their fares (they would do it after iv booked my tiger seats GRRR) to around 400AUD inc apprx taxes.
Travel agents up here have shunned the carrier, there is no way we can get info on it. If you have a problem or question etc you have to send a LETTER to Singapore, not even a email address. If you ring the call centre with a question you will be told " we only do booking" and then you will be hung up on.
It will be interesting to see how it goes with 4x weekly flights if they cant fill their plane from the SIN
side with 1$ airfares.
Its a bit of a shame really, rumour was that MH
was ready to announce their re-entry around the same time with with MH
ppls up here sussing out staff etc. Cant see that happening with TR
Dont get me wrong i love the cheap airfares but most of the traffic connects in SIN
to go else where, we would have been much better off with MI
Oh well Good Luck tiger.
