  • It’s a budget airline and it flies from Singapore budget terminal to cut the cost

      I have been traveling around the world. I take flight most of the time. Few months ago, I took Tiger Airways from Singapore to Chennai. It’s a budget airline and it flies from Singapore budget terminal to cut the cost. Although boarding was on time and everything was smooth. Went in the plane searched our seats and then fasten our seat belt and it’s about to take off. The traveling time from Singapore to Chennai is about 3:30 hrs. At this point, all the things are running smoothly.

      Finally after reaching to its flying height we took off the seat belt and relax after the announcement was made. Up to this level things are fine with us too.

      Now we are in the middle of the way that means we have been flying about one and half hour time. Suddenly pilot made another announcement that due to technical fault flight can not catch up the height that it requires in the space and we need to return back to Singapore. So pilot took the shortest way and back ...

      • to Singapore in about less than one hour.

        Everyone was panicked and frighten. One old person sitting beside me was really in bad condition after hearing the announcement but managed. Somehow, plane managed to reach back to Singapore airport. At side runway there are 5 fire fighters are alerted and as soon as then flight landed they are read for their job if something wrong happens. But thank God nothing happened.

        All passengers sent back to hotel and next day early morning we took another flight for the same route.

        Horrible thing which happened during the stay in Hotel was they did not provide any meal or even water during the stay in hotel. We have to buy everything for ourselves.

        Conclusion is that sometime to cut cost we take the cheap flight that is called budget airlines. Are they really safe? Are they really following the standard safety rule and regulation? This will really become life threatening if such cheap airlines abide the safety guideline and regular check up of plan engine and other maintenance. After all life is precious.
