      I happened to travel to India from Singapore by Tiger Airways.

      Travel delays: One good advantage is no delays in travel. I travelled too and fro by this airline. No delays compared to other major airlines to India like Indian Airlines.

      Cost: The expense of travelling by this airline is really reduced by half compared to major airlines. I had my journey cost reduced by 50%, this time. Ticket prizes are high on peak holiday seasons.

      Baggage weight limit: It is just 15 kgs for

      check in luggage and 7 kgs for hand luggage. One can add up extra kilos for check in just 3 days by paying few more dollars. When it comes to hand luggage, be careful that you weigh your baggage before your journey. Even if there is an extra one kilo on hand luggage, you will be asked to tranfer it to check in luggage. Really, the airline offers no comprimise on that.

      Food: No foods will be served in the flight. Drinks and drinking ...

      • water is sold in the flight. Drinks are sold really costly. You will be charged 3$ for a 1$ mineral water bottle.

        Comfort: Seats are not really comfortable. No cushions and no blankets. If possible, try to carry along a cushion while travelling.

        There is enough leg space between the seats. For front two rows of seats, you may be charged extra. 25$ extra for front row and 5$ extra for the next row. You can select such an option while booking tickets.

        Booking of tickets:

        Online ticket booking can be done on tigerairways.com. Planing to travel by Tiger Airways? Plan ahead and book tickets early.

        Customer service:Cochin International airpot in India has no trained offcials to answer any of your quries by phone about this airways. I happened to call the airpot regarding baggage weight limit. The airport officials could’nt provide a satisfactory reply.

        Tiger airways is a budget airline. Travelling can be done only to select locations. Checking the website may be a good idea. Provides really cheap journey at affordable rates.

    Hi Mike,

    Tiger Airway allow two pieces of luggage with a single passenger. Further, the size of luggage should not exceed the dimension of 54cm x 38 cm x 23 cm. The maximum allowed weight is 10 kg. If you have crossed the limit, choose Luggage Upsize option. Here is two relevant link:

    Nisha replies :

    You can carry fishing rod tube unless it is within the mandatory weight limit of 7Kg hand lugagge and 20 Kg check in luggage. It is better to contact the customer service of the airline for more details.

    Galega says :

    Hi Bali,

    You need to use the service named Seat Selector. It is an innovative service where you can select a seat of your preference. However, it comes with a nominal price.

    IF you have already booked the ticket, you can still avail this service. You can still get your preferred seat, if that is vacant.

    Here is the relevant Website Address for seat selector of Tiger Airways:

    Q My wife and I would like to travel to Bangkok from Perth Australia. Would you recommend this airline for such a long flight. Is it true that seating is not allocated, and food and drinks are not served on the plane. thanks

    Galega says :

    Hi Marcello,

    The seats are not that much comfortable, but still you can consider it. First the ticket cost is relatively cheaper. Then, the staffs are helpful. If you follow rules, it is a cake walk to go through check ins and other stuffs. There is no problem in traveling through this airline for such a long journey.

    As for seating, it is allocated through a computer algorithm. IF you want to get a seat of your choice, you have to select that through innovative ‘Seat Selector’ software of Tiger Airway. Please be aware that selecting seat of your choice through this system will have a nominal fee.

    Foods and drinks are allowed on the plane (not free). As for drinks, it depends on the rules and regulations of specific countries.
