Why should I? This thread is about Tiger being refused authority to operate to Indonesia. My comment was related to that, and had nothing to do with Jetstar or Hong Kong.

Cognitive dissonance = buying an endorsement then telling others not to do it

Nice. That was quick Jack Ranga/Porter. Now quickly, get across to the 'Walking in cold' thread you can make another snide comment. With the way you're following me around this site, people will start to talk...

Yep, Jack Ranga/The name is Porter. You're not breaking any news there. They're not really snide are they j3? They're the truth. If you want to preach on here how about putting a footer on your posts? You did it. And cognitive dissonance sums it up perfectly actually

Why are threads on here always hijacked by complete knobs? It's no wonder the industry is in the state it's in....now, any updates on the Tigerair situation?

It's an odd operation. "Tiger" aircraft operated by Virgin tech crew. Ultra low cost crappy service on grubby aircraft (in my experience) with prices not a lot different from the superior Virgin product anyway.
I tried a few times to book one way trips but was not allowed to however..

I've seen some examples of the Twitter brigade bringing out the old "I'll never fly [insert airline name] again!!!!!" claims....................until the next Bali holiday in 6 months time when TT are $14 cheaper than anyone else, then all will be forgiven.

Think we've moved into saving face territory , coming on the back of using their countries emblem as target practice I'm thinking this is not going to go well for Tiger .
Get some Tiger pilots in a Tiger plane with a couple of nav bags full of cash and head north .

To be fair $14 can buy a fair bit of Bintang

And from the news.abc.com.au site Tiger are going to oblige with one 738...

A Boeing 737-800 aircraft will fly empty to Bali to collect what the airline says is around 2,000 passengers, and return them to Australia.
Dang, I would NOT want to be on that flight back to OZ.

737 operation is dead
Those A320s are going to be around for a long while yet.
Two very BOLD statements there. Would you care to explain why you believe so?
