Sector: Singapore (SIN) - Kuala Lumpur (KUL)
Tiger Airways (TR) is a subsidiary of a Singapore based company and partially owned by Singapore Airlines. It is a low cost carrier based in Singapore.
Budget Terminal Changi is separated fro the main terminal. However, it can easily connected with free Shuttle bus from the Terminal 2. The check in area is huge enable to cater almost a thousand people (from my observation) at a time with ample of check in counter. But the check in counter opens only two hours before the departure time and mostly two counter dedicated for a flight. So plan wisely as only one Coffee shop and McDonald available.
Even though it is a budget terminal, I can say it does not look like one. The ambiance is great with a lot of shop to browse around. The hall also provide free Internet, plug point for laptop, charger booth and computers for passenger to keep update with the outside world while waiting for the departure.
A320 was used and the aircraft was nicely maintain. A tip for everyone is if possible try and ask for the Emergency Row as there are ample of space for the seats.
Crew were nice and helpful. They tend to a lot of passenger demand just for a short flight. It's great that they are very efficient in doing their work. The only thing was on my flight, the crew could speak up more clearly as I hardly understand what the announcement was about most of the time.
In Flight Entertainment
No IFE available for this flight.
Meal are based on board purchase from the menu. A little bit overpriced but for short flight I believe we can just skip it.
