Eric: Haha no la, it's really not too bad and I seldom complain about transportation even when I took those 6-hour bus rides to and fro KL last time. This time it's a bit bad because of the scare and dry eyes. :)

WK: EEEW

Wei Liang: Yeah no frills. I actually had okay experience with MAS. You probably got a bad plane for that trip. :)



Hehe..totally no frills huh? But my experience wit...

2008-01-25T00:35:00.000+08:00

Hehe..totally no frills huh? But my experience with MAS for AS-KL wasn't that good either. The air-conditioning was more like an oven to me. Never tried AAsia before though. Ah, maybe that's just for short trips.

2008-01-24T16:09:00.000+08:00

Eww. eh yee pin, are you sure your friend did not receive any meals service onboard Oasis? Though it's a LCC, i think they still do provide meals. I am not sure though, haven't flown with them before. So can't comment much.

Yeah, totally agree with you though. Chang Yang has indeed redefined the meaning of cheapskates.

Chang Yang, I totally salute you! I would not be fit enough to survive such deprived long haul flight...

2008-01-24T10:32:00.000+08:00

It's 1000 ringgit cheaper wor.

I have always been okay with low cost also, but then they were only one to two hours. Take the airbus A320 for four hours and you would understand the agony... :P Most low cost airlines that fly long-haul use 747, and it's much more bearable. A320 is the one airasia uses for local flight.

Haha I am not the greatest cheapskate leh. I still bought something from the vending machine in Darwin. But I drank from the tap. :P :P

2008-01-24T03:43:00.000+08:00

If it's only 30 cheaper you might as well take commercial flights....

When I took Jetstar I was actually quite satisfactory. Airasia is fine except that it's free seating, hence you will have kiasu-cantonese speaking-uncle aunties queuing up 2 hours before the flight. and the fact that LCCT was designed after a factory does not really help.

Budget airlines in Europe are definitely not as good. But Ryanair offers air tix as cheap as RM70 to Spain. Cheapskates like us just have to bear with it.

and, I did buy a bottle of water on Jetstar. Was thinking that I was the greatest cheapskate in the world but you redefined the word altogether...hehe.....

my fren took Oasis from London to HK. 15 hours, no water, no entertainment- but free toilet and free flight attendants.
Imagine that.....

2008-01-23T17:48:00.000+08:00

Haha yeah it probably is the pilot, but then I think I got two different pilots on the two legs, so it was rather coincidental that the same vibration occurred on both occasions. The plane was different too, if I'm not mistaken.

I did bring my books on board. In fact I brought three books on board wishing that I could finish them. But my eyes were so dry it hurts so much after a couple of hours. :P And I was also annoyed by the two chatters' endless topics on their xiu kiong niece and their friends' son's friend's uncle. :P

In Darwin the queue was still quite long, and the flight was still delayed by half an hour. They had only two counters open for the check-in procedure of more than one hundred people.

Haha regarding your last question: it's a return ticket. :'(



Great narration! I think it was just your unlucky ...

2008-01-23T17:32:00.000+08:00

Great narration!

I think it was just your unlucky day to have met pilots who could not handle the take-off well enough. I don't remember experiencing any vibration during my take-offs.

My only complaint would be lack of entertainment, and perhaps free food/drinks (considering it's such a long flight). But that was expected and so I bought myself weekend newspapers (thicker edition) to read during the journey.

In the second half of the journey, I could not resist the food temptation anymore and so rewarded myself with in-flight instant noodles and mineral water. The interesting thing is that you pay with AUD and they return your change in SGD. Hah..and in the flight from Darwin to Singapore, I felt I was already home, probably because of the presence of Asian air crew.

Apparently the day I flew was the first day of this Melbourne-Darwin-Singapore flight. That explains the delay in take-off in Darwin. The queue to re-check in was so super long, not to mention we had to spend time clearing immigration some more. That was the first time I found myself still in the airport instead of the plane at the time of take-off.

Anyway, when my friends flew a few days later, the long queue problem has been resolved and there was no more delay. So I am thinking Tiger Airways is actually improving already.

Lack of staff can be a problem too as it is a budget airline. And oh, tell you another interesting thing. We actually met the same air stewardess in our Melbourne-Darwin flight as that we met in Gold Coast-Melbourne flight. Lol.

I'd better stop now. It's such a long comment. Heh..from the way you put it, you are not gonna take this airline again, are you? :P

2008-01-23T13:43:00.000+08:00

Silverisle: Haha that was what I thought too when I bought the ticket. :D

not ka lip: So are you Ka Lip or not? :D Apoptose.. Hahaha... I think it would cause more necrosis than apoptosis, that condition.

rj: Haha yeah, what to do?! :D

WK: Ya, the fare was only 2100 compared to the usual 3000+ I pay if I were to take MAS. Not as cheap as you lah, NORTHWEST airline. EEW.



Nice narration of your flight experience. The fare...

2008-01-23T10:03:00.000+08:00

Nice narration of your flight experience. The fare was like 30 percent cheaper? Wow, i actually thought it was more. If this were a long haul flight and if tiger airways were to fly using A320, i actually don't mind paying a more expensive ticket for comfort. Hehe. Cheapo you truly are. :P

WK

2008-01-23T09:30:00.000+08:00

Oh my... I think I could hardly survive the long journey. I tried budget airline during my trip in Europe. It wasn't really a pleasant one either. But what to do, it's cheap!

Gosh. This post scares me lar. But still, what I want is to get home, as cheap as possible, I don't want to pay extra for comfort. =P
