throw away line 1a.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and wait for a more well thought out response maybe with some support for your argument.

Hey Otto, before you call for figures from others, how about you provide some to support your assertion?

Announcement between 8-9pm tomorrow with the last quarters loss and other announcements.

The loss is expected to be quite significant.

Tiger Airways Australia incurred an operating loss of S$27.2 million for the quarter, with revenue falling to S$8.8 million from S$67.2 million a year earlier.

Wow! That's a large loss for only a QUARTER. Obviousally the grounding hurt alot more than expected, and with the rapid expansion of Air Australia offering full service and similar fares, the public may finish the Auz operation with their feet! I hope not, as Tiger definately kept fares low when they were flying at their peak.

Yep
Charging less than a cab fare to the airport or to park your car.
Great business models.
Think I will invest in the car park operator, offer a slab of concrete and make more money than an airline.

Hey Aussie Aviator, I think there's something wrong with your maths. If Tiger make a loss at their price point, how on earth do you think Air Australia can make a profit by, as you call it, offering full service for similar fares? Especially given Air Australia don't have big brother to prop up the losses? Are you serious?

They had better be careful; with global warming and rising ocean levels, they are going to sink or swim.....

PM, I wouldn't have a clue if Air Australia can make a profit or not. But they are also running a international operation as well, so maybe that makes money and supports the domestic flights. Not my figures either, but from Tiger's quarterly report. Would be nice if they all survive, but can't help but think that it's getting a little bit crowded out there! Main difference appears to be that you can check in a bag, without extra charge, regardless of the fare. Here's a summary from their website.
