Tiger on the prowl..!!

Tiger Airways have ordered eight brand new A320s - just announced at Paris. See link below:

Airbus to sell eight A320s to Singapore's Tiger Airways

Great news - but where does that leave Jetstar and Valuair??

Are you serious?

Get real .. Another third world asian airline!! Going to dirty asian cities!

Who are they trying to fool

"rapidly expanding fleet which will enable us to consolidate our position as Singapore's largest low-fare airline," said Tony Davis, the airline's chief executive"

Wow... imagine being "Singapore's largest low-fare airline". just how many airlines does it have????????

Soooooooo exciting

On an island 30 X 15 miles, and 3 million people (ie. no domestic ops), their capability is about the same as any other similar sized Asian city wanting to start its own airline!

Singapore Airlines, Worlds Premier Airline
and lead airline for the Airbus A380

Not bad for a a dirty asian city on an island 30 by 15 miles with a total population of 3 million people.

The cross roads of the world are in Changi, not Heathrow and O'Hare.

Hey Luna
I was in LHR and BRU not long ago and noticed that LHR has to be by far the single most, biggest C**k up and dirty airport on the planet. BRU city has to be dirtier than all of Europe's cities and has been in dire need of a lick of paint for years. Not sure where you stay on the moon but looking for dirty cities in the 1st World is easier now than ever before and the Asian cities are cleaning up fast.

Ever consider I was referring to it's "destinations" rather than it's "origins"
