Our Experience with Tiger Airways

Hubby and I recently took Tiger Airways as the fare was cheaper than all the other airlines at the time of booking.

For those initiated, Tiger Airways depart Kuala Lumpur from LCCT terminal (low cost carrier terminal) and NOT KLIA Main Terminal. If you made the blunder like we did, don't fret, there's a shuttle bus every half hourly from KLIA to LCCT and it costs RM2.50 per person one way. We made it on time for check in and boarding. No cab driver (touts) at KLIA would send us there so bus it is.

This is how the plane looks like on a hot sunny afternoon. The interior is exactly the same as Air Asia flights except for the hot seats cover in Air Asia and the colour of the uniforms.

The meals look delicious but mind you, it is in Singapore dollar, which is 2.5 times more than Ringgit Malaysia so we did not order anything.

They serve liquor on board... 45 mins flight, too short to get drunk?
Dollar to dollar, similarly priced as Air Asia but once you convert Singapore Dollar to RM, shudder 2.5 times more.

The stewardess on our flight who did the announcement needs some serious training in English pronunciation. 

The steward on our flight back has a good voice and okay English. Their light yellow uniform could be more orangey or brighter so it won't look like it has been washed too many times and look worn out... And the design looks like how they design the Chinese banquets/dinner waiters/waitresses' uniform. I know how some people will say how stewardess are waitresses in the sky but then again they are a league of their own so their uniform should be chic, professional and comfortable.

Check in guys are mostly unsmiling and the one at Changi Airport doesn't wanna tell us the departure gate when he handed over our boarding pass and asked us to check the board. Oh well. So much for customer service.

Anyway, the flights were on time. No complaints about that. The seats equally cramped like Air Asia. As long as it carried me from one destination to another, I guess it's alright. Keep the cheap fares coming!
