Recently I saw a Rex pilot, this fella was a quite senior in the FO ranks at Tiger last year.

Have TT been laying off?

Most likely that person remained at Tiger, while others went to Air Auz, at the time of the grounding.

More expansion from Tiger on the cards

http://www.themercury.com.au/article...31_travel.html
Tiger Airways' return to the Tasmania market in November.
That airline will run two daily return services between Hobart and Melbourne, with a third to be added over the summer.
Tiger said flights would start from $45.95 and the airline was investigating the possibility of adding routes to Sydney and Adelaide, as well as flights from Launceston.
May start HBA to SYD flights and return on the short lived HBA to ADL route, plus back to LST. Will they resolve their dispute with the SA govt so they can return to ADL soon, they may need to give them a refund of the state subsidy.

The Australian arm is now forecasting a return to profit Q3 this year. Good to see.

Which will mean the fleet could soon head north to 15 from 10 next year.

I'll get back to you on that one, also AD mentioned ADL as a next stop, I would love to see the airline take on CBR again, aswelk as all previous routes albeit the profitable ones

Thumbs up Back to School

I saw an article in the Australian that said:

Meanwhile,the low-cost carrier has also sent some of its senior people back to school. The training of 24 staff at RMIT University involves mainly senior pilots, cabin trainers and safety and quality-related senior ground crew.
Does anyone know what the actual training or course was?

Stay Alive,

TIGER Airways has vowed to run at a loss for as long as it takes to break Qantas and Virgin Australia's dominance in the domestic air fare market.

Tiger Airways flies at Qantas and Virgin Australia's duopoly | thetelegraph.com.au

Glad I don't invest in Tiger Airways. This is almost predatory pricing, intentionally running at a loss to the detriment of competitors.

I guess safety standards will take another cut too....
