Don't Ride on Tiger Airways
i spend for my own airfares going back to and from naga twice now in 2010. so such convenience budget-wise to have budget deals for international trips. i took my chance in tiger airways last june. in less than six months, i've regretted it. not that budget airlines don't provide the same food and amenities (movies on board, wine-on-demand etc.). you can't expect them to, kaya nga budget. what is disheartening is their gall and limited accountability when changing flight schedules. in so doing, you could be spending more like i did last october when i left perth. when my oct 19pm flight was canceled without notice, i automatically missed the 10am flight back to manila on board cebu pacific. tiger airways did not refund for this missed cebu-pacific flight; reiterating that it's not their fault anyway if connecting flights are missed. they are only responsible for their own flight schedules. i ended up getting a new booking on cebu pacific or a wasteful PhP8000 that would have been spent for more needful things (yaman's tuition for three months na). today, i am enduring the same disappointment as i got advanced notice from them of my dec10-11 flight being moved to dec 11-12. might as well not fly to perth then if i could only attend 1 day of a 2-day seminar. patience patience. but i can blog. so i warn you. stay clear of budget international airlines. spend your hard-saved money on trusted full-fare airlines that really deliver.
