Any comments to share ? How long is the waiting time? Is it worth it? as this is by far the cheapest airline to HK. Thanks to share.

not worth trying

once I took a flight on their brand new aircraft - there was zero maintenance, absolutely dirty carpet and toilet, and they are perpetually late. The only time they are not late is when they cancel the flight

so the allegations on Tiger in OZ is not without basis

buyers beware !

Travelled twice on tiger, once to Kuching, another to Perth.
Yeah, you get what you paid.

The seats are quite narrow, so generally quite ok if it's a short trip. Perth was too far I think. Luckily both flights were not delayed.

I only booked when there is any promo fares..usually 4-5 mths in advance. And only booked once 2 yrs ago, and no cancellation at that time
